I drink Kombucha almost every day. My wife usually ferments a batch with a home Kombucha fermenting kit, then adds things like blueberries and ginger to it. But there are a lot of myths and mistruths out there when it comes to Kombucha.
Call it “Kombucha confusion” if you will…
Is Kombucha alcoholic?
Is Kombucha dangerous to make yourself, and if not, how do you do it?
Does Kombucha cause Candida or bacterial overgrowth to occur in your gut?
Are all brands of Kombucha at the grocery store created equal?
How should you feel after you drink Kombucha?
We're going to answer all these questions and more on today's special podcast interview with The Kombucha Mamma herself: Hannah Crum.
