Naturally fermented foods are all the rage, and for good reason - but they’re not all the same! Fermented vegetables (kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles) and dairy foods (kefir, yogurt) are fermented with naturally-occurring bacteria, like lactobacillus acidophilus.
Kombucha, on the other hand, is mostly fermented with naturally-occurring yeast. For some people, this is not a problem. But for a large number of people who already have an overabundance of yeast in their system - to the point of imbalance - regularly drinking kombucha is a common mistake.

Many bottled kombucha beverages also contain a hefty amount of added sugar, so always check the nutrition label before you buy.
