You have heard a lot about kombucha, of the healthy benefits of this fermented tea with ancient origins, but you have some doubts that you need to clear before you start drinking it. We hope these guidelines will be helpful to you:
- If you have never drunk kombucha before, start with about 100 milliliters a day. Depending on tolerance, increase the dose to take it a couple or three times a day.
- Drinking kombucha is unlikely to cause any side effects. At most, you will notice more bowel movement. Typically, you will experience a sense of well-being.
- Drink kombucha when you feel like it. On an empty stomach, you will enhance its detoxifying effect. Before or after meals, it will improve your digestion thanks to its natural probiotics.
- If you are especially sensitive to caffeine, we recommend not drinking kombucha in the evening. Although it has about six times less caffeine than a cup of coffee, it could affect your sleep.
- You must bear in mind that, like all fermented foods, kombucha contains a little alcohol generated naturally during its preparation. It is a very small amount: a little less than 1% of the drink.

- Make it your substitute for sodas, coffee, and low-alcohol beverages like beer.
- If you are a pregnant or nursing mother, consult your healthcare professional about consuming kombucha. Ours is made following the original recipe, it is not pasteurized. In this way, it preserves the natural probiotics generated during its fermentation. In addition, it has detoxifying effects that you should be aware of.
- Before offering it to a child, keep in mind that it contains a little caffeine and less than one degree of alcohol.
