This naturally sweet beverage might seem like it would send blood sugar skyrocketing, but depending on how it’s made, kombucha could do the opposite and more. Diabetes management, improved gut health, and abundant antioxidants and probiotics are just some of the reported benefits of the health drink, and much of those are rooted in science.
