Kombucha health benefits are being touted by many. But is it really healthy? I recently updated this article… which used to be about why kombucha is healthy.
Here's my current position: I no longer drink kombucha because of the fluoride. I think it would be fine to drink kombucha if you are not overloaded with fluoride. Sadly, most of us are overloaded since there is fluoride in virtually everything these days.
I started drinking the kombucha several years ago when I learned about all the health benefits people say it has. Recently I found out that kombucha is not healthy after all. Why? Because it’s very high in fluoride.
The fluoride in kombucha causes all kinds of health problems. If you’re suffering from hormonal problems, migraine headaches, cysts in your breasts or ovaries, cavities, bone loss, or other health challenges, it could be the fluoride in the kombucha you’re drinking every day.

Kombucha Health Benefits? Fluoride in Kombucha Makes it Unhealthy
If you watch the video I posted above, kombucha is very high in fluoride.
Sally Fallon Morell, author of the book Nourishing Traditions and President of the Weston A. Price Foundation has claimed in her book and on her website that organic tea is lower in fluoride, but there is no evidence of that.

Read my article about the fluoride in kombucha and about how there is no evidence that organic tea is lower in fluoride. All tea (green, black, even rooibos) is high in fluoride, and kombucha is made from tea.
What To Drink Instead of Kombucha
A great probiotic alternative to kombucha that doesn’t have fluoride is water kefir soda. You can make it at home for pennies with filtered water. I did the math — it only costs a penny per ounce to make, which costs 1/3 of the price of soda.
