Is It Safe To Drink Kombucha Every Day?
Like its superpowers, kombucha's drawbacks also lie in its key ingredients. Some brands add higher amounts of sugar to counteract the trademark fermented taste and make the beverage more palatable for unaccustomed consumers.
Kombucha also contains a small, but notable amount of caffeine. Like sugar content, though, these levels can vary dramatically between brands. Make sure you check the nutrition labels so that you do not exceed the recommended daily amount of caffeine and sugar.
The CDC offers numbers: 4 ounces of kombucha can be safely consumed 1-3 times a day. So, in total, no more than 12 ounces per day. However, most kombucha brands bottle their product in 16-20 fluid-ounce bottles, so you've already surpassed the suggested limit if you finish a single bottle. Sticking to one full bottle every other day is a safe way to ensure your probiotics are up, your acid levels are even, and your sugar intake is right on track for a healthy day.
