5 Reasons You Should Never Drink Kombucha

The nutritional info will freak you out.

By Sarah Weinberg, Delish

Kombucha — or booch, as superfans call it — is about as mysterious as its name would lead you to think. The people who love the fermented tea claim it's capable of doing magical things, from aiding to digestion to curing cancer. But the scientific evidence is slim, and the negatives are starting to stack up. School yourself before drinking another bottle.

The sugar content is scary.

To mask the kind of funky flavor of plain kombucha, a lot of brands add fruit purees to the mix — or worse, cane sugar. One battle can pack upwards of 20 grams of sugar. Even when it's just natural sugar, nutritionists recommend that you eat — not drink — fruit.

It's possible to overdose.

Kombucha contains lactic acid, and for some people, too much can lead to scary outcomes. You could put yourself in danger of scary situations, like seizures, low blood sugar, and heart failure.

There's a little bit of alcohol in each bottle.

If you try to stay dry during the week, kombucha's not the drink you want to reach for. Every bottle has a small amount of alcohol, usually under 0.5 percent, or the brand has to market it for the 21 and up crowd.

The yeast content could mess with your body.

Kombucha contains live microorganisms; sometimes you can even see them moving in the bottle. It's cool, but those yeasts and bacteria could worsen candida issues, like yeast or fungal infections.
