Kefir or Kombucha?

Here at Fizzicle, we are kombucha/kefir makers and health & wellness enthusiasts first. There was a stage when our Chief Fizzician wanted to pursue medicine, but she didn't have the patience to make it as a Physician (pun intended). 

So here we have a great video by Dr. Eric Berg DC explaining the difference between Kefir and Kombucha. Please do note that in this video it is a sharing about milk kefir and not water kefir, which we produce. Water Kefir does contain Lactic Acid, which Dr. Eric Berg mentions in the video. 

Kombucha vs Kefir: What Is the Difference?

Here is our executive summary of his sharing in terms of benefits. Both are great in inflammation reduction, which is medical speak for swelling and pain. 

Kombucha (Acetic Acid)  Kefir (Lactic Acid)
  • Increases digestion, due to acidity from acetic acid
  • Decreases pathogen growth
  • Increases mineral absorption
  • Helps to make insulin more sensitive (which means it binds sugar to your body more readily)
  • Reduces blood pressure
