You’ve probably heard the question is jun kombucha healthy ?
The short answer is that yes — jun kombucha contains a number of properties that have been linked to improved overall health.
Of course — like any other food or beverage with potential health benefits — it’s all about how it’s made and what it’s made with.
At Wild Tonic, we’re committed to using an all-star lineup of ingredients, including organic honey, sustainably and ethically sourced tea, and the highest quality botanicals and organic fruit juices we can possibly find. That’s what makes our jun kombucha so delicious — and good for you!
Read on to learn some of the ways that our products can contribute to your well-being from the inside out:
Jun Kombucha = Great For Gut Health
While ‘gut health’ might sound gross, it’s actually a huge part of your overall wellness — so it’s important to have an understanding of what it means!
Your gut is populated with a lot of bacteria — 100,000 billion (yes, that’s billion with a ‘b’) or more.
All those little microorganisms are busy little bees, helping you do things like digest, absorb nutrients, and more.
You want to help populate your gut with as much ‘good’ bacteria as possible to keep all systems running smoothly — that’s where jun kombucha can help. Wild Tonic’s jun kombucha contains both prebiotics and probiotics, which can help contribute to a healthy gut microbiome.
Prebiotics are a type of fiber; probiotics are a type of bacteria.
Prebiotics serve as food for the probiotics. That way they can better do their work and keep you feeling fit as a fiddle.
Probiotics, as the so-called ‘good’ bacteria, contribute to an awesomely healthy, happy, and productive gut microbiome.

A Fermented Beverage
How does jun kombucha contain all of that pre-and probiotic goodness? It’s all in the ferment.
As a result of our unique fermentation process featuring honey, our products retain both prebiotics and probiotics — as opposed to traditional kombucha, which usually just contains probiotics.
While fermented foods are viewed as healthy because of the presence of prebiotics and probiotics, it’s not the only benefit they have to offer. Here are some other things that fermented foods and beverages like jun kombucha can do for you:
Improve your mood. Yep: there’s a distinct gut-brain connection going on. There’s even a name for it: the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA for short) axis.
The gut contains a ton of neurons — and they can have a big impact on how you feel. For instance, did you know that up to 90% of the body’s serotonin is generated in the gut?
Improve your immunity. Fermented foods can contribute to your overall immunity. All that ‘good’ bacteria can help your body fight off disease and discourage bad bacteria from growing and causing illness or inflammation.
At Wild Tonic, the not-so-secret ingredient that gives our jun kombucha its signature lightly sweet, lightly tart, but mostly mellow flavor is 100% pure honey.
While the deliciousness it imparts is rewarding enough, honey actually offers a variety of health benefits, too!
Honey is naturally very high in antioxidants — which are one of the best ways to help defend your body against free radical damage.
In case you’re not familiar with the term ‘free radical,’ let’s take a time-out to define it.
Environmental toxins, poor nutrition, or constantly living in stress mode can create oxidative stress in the body. When this happens, your body’s oxygen molecules can split — leaving atoms with detached electrons.
These electrons kind of go nuts after this happens, tearing up your body looking for their pair. But along the way, they can cause that oxidative stress, which can result in illness and signs of aging.
Honey’s natural antioxidant properties help you avoid oxidative stress — while also delivering a nutritional punch of enzymes, minerals, and vitamins.
A Lower-Caffeine Choice
If you feel like life begins after coffee, you’re not alone. Don’t worry — caffeine isn’t all bad. But too much caffeine can potentially harm your health, leading to increased stress, lower-quality sleep, and, you know, unpleasant jitters.
Plus, if you’re drinking coffee with cream and sugar, it could be upping your stress levels and creating unwanted sugar crashes.
Jun kombucha is naturally energizing, but it has a lot less caffeine and sugar than coffee or soda. Consider substituting it for coffee, tea, or soda — and enjoy a more natural energy boost!
Is It Safe To Drink Jun Kombucha Regularly?
In general, nutritional experts agree that kombucha is a safe beverage to enjoy on the regular. However, there may be some instances where certain individuals may want to avoid beverages containing live bacteria.
