Can I drink too much Kombucha Tea?
Well it really depends on you on who is drinking too much and what too much means to you.
I know for myself I have days where I drink no Kombucha too, and I have days where I drink a gallon of the tea or sometime much more, the better question I think would be the following:
How do I know when I’ve drank too much Kombucha?
And you can know a few ways, or how can I prevent drinking too much Kombucha? Let’s answer those 2 questions right now:
If your body has something called a cleansing crisis and we’ve done articles and other videos about what a cleansing crisis is, basically if you start getting negative side effects of Kombucha tea, look at how much you’re drinking.
If you break out in a rash, if you’re going to the bathroom a lot, again all these things could be good things it could be just your body trying to get stuff out, but perhaps it’s getting it out too quickly, so I would look at how much you’re drinking and more importantly how much are you drinking in one sitting?
Second question is:
How can I prevent myself from drinking too much Kombucha Tea?
Really guys it’s water, drink as much water as you possible can. (uh, but of course don’t drink too, too much water – ahem just another benefit of kombucha tea is that it restores electrolytes in case you do happen to have too much of the h20!)
People think, well if this is good for me, maybe if I drink even more of it so it’ll be better for me, but there’s going to be a cut off where, look drinking 10 gallons of water isn’t good for you either, so the reason why I say drink water with your Kombucha Tea or after drinking your Kombucha is a few reasons.
We go into other videos why, but primarily it’s helping flush your liver, so if you have too much Kombucha, without water going through your liver, even though Kombucha helps with your liver, it still gets processed in your liver and anything that’s processed too much you’re going to be taxing your liver.
Again a good rule of thumb also is why do you need to be drinking a gallon of Kombucha?
I drink a gallon of Kombucha sometimes because I need to do quality control, so I’m constantly testing and tasting what’s good, but is that the best for your homemade kombucha?
Small Amount But Often
Probably not, I would say start off, again 4 ounces 4 times day, see how you feel, then maybe do it 8 ounces twice a day, go up, listen you want to go up to 32, 48 ounces, do it, but… (another tip coming up, get ready for the fancy box again)…
The rule of thumb is, I always say, it’s better to drink 4 ounces of Kombucha 4 times a day, which is 16 ounces, then a full 16 all at once, at least at the beginning, so let your body get used to what’s going on.
Listen to your body, see how it reacts, take your time, it’s not a race, it’s better to be the turtle, than a rabbit in the Kombucha game of drinking too much Kombucha tea.
