How much kombucha should I drink?

How much kombucha should I drink?

That's a great question, and unfortunately we have to give you the standard answer of, 'It depends'.

Why? Kombucha is great, but everyone's body is different and responds differently to different foods.

As well as a disclaimer that we are providing this for information purposes only. We are not medical doctors and we are not providing medical advice. You should ask your doctor what the proper amount of kombucha is that YOU should drink.

A growing body of scientific research now confirms that consuming a variety of fermented foods on a regular basis, including kombucha, can improve your overall gut microbiome by helping to support the health and growth of your existing good gut bacteria and help fight the bad bacteria. One study I read said that studies have shown that consuming even dead, good bacteria helps to occupy spaces along the intestinal lining to prevent bad bacteria from occupying those spaces! Crazy cool.


Back to the question of serving size...

If you are new to kombucha, you should probably start slowly and see how your body and digestive system respond to this powerful, new food.

If you are totally new to kombucha, you may want to start super slow. Maybe 2-3oz once or twice a day, gradually increasing to 6, 8 or 12oz, or whatever you feel comfortable with.

PLEASE NOTE: Some people, when first consuming kombucha may temporarily get diarrhea or an upset stomach, feel temporarily uncomfortable or just go to the bathroom more frequently since it is 'new' to their system. Typical advice is to start slow and in small amounts until you see how your body responds. Many people also experience and report that drinking kombucha immediately gives them more energy and helps them stay more regular with their digestion and elimination. Like we said, everyone responds differently to new foods, especially probiotics. 

Whatever amount of our kombucha you choose to drink, we hope that you truly enjoy taking a break from your daily activities to enjoy our refreshing, hand crafted Seattle Kombucha. Prost! To Your Health!
