Benefits of Kombucha and Brewing At Home

By: Brew Your Bucha Posted: September 20, 2017 in Kombucha

Kombucha is a traditional drink originating from China in 221 BC during the Tsin Dynasty, which was also known as “The Tea of Immortality”.  Why? for it’s health benefits!  It contains a variety of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics and a tasty flavour to boot.  Kombucha has seen a resurgence in popularity amongst the health conscious crowds.  If you have never tried it,  it’s a fizzy fermented tea drink with varying levels of tartness and sweetness.

8 ounces of kombucha roughly contains:

  • 20% of the daily value of B-Vitamins

  • Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086: 1 billion organisms

  • S. Boulardii: 1 billion organisms

  • EGCG 100mg

  • Glucuronic Acid 10mg


You won’t find any scientific studies about the health benefits of kombucha, but millions of people over millennia can’t be wrong, can they? Some of the benefits kombucha lovers claim to experience are:

  • Increased amounts of energy

  • Better digestion

  • Improved mood (helps with anxiety/depression)

  • Beneficial for weight loss

  • Boosted immunity

From a practical standpoint, we at Brew Your Bucha love having a few bottles in the fridge at all times for a fizzy (low sugar, soda alternative) and delicious drink with an endless variety of flavors!  

Why should I brew at home? 

Many kombucha lovers have the impression that brewing kombucha is complex and requires a lot of time and effort; however, they are shocked to learn how simple and cost effective it can be to do it themselves!


After getting the necessary brewing equipment, we estimate that you can brew a bottle of kombucha (similar size as one bought commercially) for approximately $0.25 – $0.75 cents depending on the flavor ingredients you use.  As a result of the production of baby scoby while brewing, your production of kombucha can be unlimited, which is another reason many kombucha homebrewers love managing their own cultures.  

Visit our Learn to Brew section and other resources to see how easy it is to brew at home!  We also have instructional videos which show you the steps and ingredients we use to brew our own bucha!
