Kombucha, a fermented and fizzy tea that boasts a bitter and sweet taste, may be the most popular new item on this list. Typically made from black tea, though occasionally produced using green tea, kombucha offers a variety of health benefits.
Even though it’s extremely popular, most of kombucha’s benefits have been revealed through animal and not human studies. One of those studies showed that it can help maintain liver health, even after exposure to dangerous chemicals. Another showed that kombucha can help diabetes patients maintain healthy blood sugar levels, while another showed that it can help limit the development of cholesterol.
