Jaw-dropping science facts everyone should know about kombucha, part 4
Indian scientists have discovered that diabetes sufferers would benefit from a kombucha habit, with the antioxidants in the drink proven to suppress organ dysfunction and restore alterations in tissue machinery caused by the condition.
Both black tea and kombucha were tested in a 2013 study led by Semantee Bhattacharya from the Department of Life Sciences & Biotechnology in Kolkata. The team found that while both drinks worked very well at combatting the causes of diabetes, kombucha was significantly more efficient than black tea (because the fermentation process produces a higher number of antioxidants).
Are you diabetic? Have you found that a daily dose of kombucha helps? We'd love to hear from you! Please comment and share this article, and why not check out parts 1, 2 and 3 of our blog on the amazing health benefits of kombucha- remember, these claims are made by science, not by us!
