Hailed as a godsend for getting your gut health back on track, it turns out that kombucha is actually bad for your teeth and dentists are warning people of the damage it can do.
Thanks to the high levels of acidity found in kombucha, it can contribute to the decay of healthy teeth. In fact, kombucha is just as acidic as your average glass of soda, and can upset the delicate PH balance of saliva, making the mouth more acidic and a better environment for bacteria to grow. The acidity in kombucha can also wear down the enamel in your teeth.
However, you can still drink kombucha and maintain healthy teeth,. Simple swish your mouth out with water after drinking kombucha, and always pair kombucha drinks with foods that have low acidity levels, such as unsweetened yoghurt, fruit, fresh vegetables, beans, lentils and tofu.
