Diabetes has become a serious and growing health concern and a major risk factor leading to metabolism disorders and liver-kidney dysfunctions.

Kombucha can help and is becoming an alternative natural therapeutical approach.

Initial clinical trials of the kombucha recruited participants with the disease, or those displaying pre-diabetic blood glucose levels all across the country. In an independent scientific study, researchers found:

  • 75 per cent of participants reported improvement in their fasting blood sugar levels
  • 1.5mmol/L fasting blood sugar levels improvement
  • Around one in three (31 per cent) participants reported drastic results and completely resolved their diabetes symptoms

Studies have shown that green tea in general on its own reduces blood sugar and improves insulin sensitivity [1]

According to a study with almost 300,000 participants found out that people who drink green tea had an 18 % lower risk of becoming diabetic [2]

Kombucha made from green tea is likely to be even more beneficial then just drinking green tea. Through the fermentation process Kombucha enhances the benefits that green tea provides. The results of some studies proved that Kombucha is a better suppressor of increased blood glucose levels and can improve insulin sensitivity. [3].

A recent study also found that Kombucha could not only reduce blood sugar but it also leads to delayed absorption of LDL (low-density lipoproteins, also called the "bad" cholesterol) and significantly raised HDL levels (high-density lipoprotein, known as “good” cholesterol). Moreover according to the same study, the Kombucha seemed to protect both liver and kidney function [4].


Experimental studies demonstrated that regular consumption of Kombucha can help the immune system and general well-being of diabetic patients. Therefore it can be used as a functional supplement for the treatment and prevention of diabetes. However, before using Kombucha as a therapy it is advisable to consult a doctor.
