14. Bottom Line

There isn't enough research on kombucha's effects on humans to confirm most claims of its benefits. However, it does contain many probiotics and may make a suitable addition to a healthy diet. While it probably won't cure your various ails, it may help alleviate certain issues when used in combination with other treatments and a healthy lifestyle in general. Plus, those who like the taste may find that it is a suitable replacement for drinks that are less healthy. It's important to note that kombucha is far from a cure-all and may pose some risks, especially for people with weaker immune systems.
