6. Heart Disease and Cholesterol

Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, and improving heart health is paramount for overall health. A key factor that contributes to heart disease is excess "bad" LDL cholesterol, which can raise the risk for stroke and other heart issues. Several lab studies on rats indicate that kombucha may help reduce LDL cholesterol levels while also increasing levels of "good" HDL cholesterol. As with all animal studies, it's important to note that these results may not apply to humans, and further research is necessary to confirm the effects.
