Kombucha And The Health Of Your Teeth

Posted on 5/9/2022 by Barbara Ketchum
Kombucha And The Health Of Your TeethYou probably know this delicious and nutritious tea known as kombucha. Its use is growing rapidly in America. This sweetened black or green tea is made through a combined bacteria and yeast fermentation process. In this process, the sugars are broken down, allowing the formation of probiotic bacteria. The process of fermentation also leads to the good gut bugs residing in the intestines, which allow the body to digest food and enhance many necessary functions of the body. Kombucha has been used for thousands of years with historical evidence showing its use as early as 200 B.C. Perhaps you may want to know what this tea does to your teeth over time.

The Benefits of Kombucha

Many health benefits of kombucha exist. The tea comes in different tastes and flavors such as hibiscus, ginger, and strawberry. The beverage is hailed for its professed ability to enhance the mood, detoxify the body, and aid with weight loss. It also boosts body energy and reduces cholesterol. Drinking kombucha tea helps with digestion and stimulates the immune system. It also helps prevent cancer and prevents arthritis. People also enjoy the refreshing qualities of the beverage and the mild stimulating effect that the fermentation process offers.

Is Drinking Kombucha Safe for the Teeth?

Drinking store-bought kombucha is considered safe. Although the fermentation process can contribute to a dangerous effect if not followed accurately, the existing regulations tend to guarantee the safety of the kombucha products you buy off the shelf.

However, there have been some incidences of harm arising from poorly processed kombucha. The risks arise if the sanitation process is not done properly or when the FDA regulations have not been followed. The biggest concern about kombucha is its ability to stain the teeth. You perhaps know that coffee and teas or other beverages with staining-ability can stain your teeth when you consume them regularly. Therefore, if your teeth are likely to stain, you should limit the use of kombucha. Talk to our dentist about drinking kombucha. Call us today.
