Many people claim that kombucha can help extend your life. This claim makes sense in theory, as people who choose to drink kombucha likely lead healthier lives in general. Notably, a 2000 study found that male rats who drank kombucha lived 5% longer than the control group that didn't drink it. For female rats, it was 2%. A study from 2001 showed that after drinking kombucha for 15 days, rats had fewer stress symptoms and healthier lives. More studies are necessary to confirm these effects in humans.
