These ready-bottled kombucha brands in Malaysia will give you easy access to a healthy gut.

By now, we would all know the health benefits of kombucha. The fermented tea rich with probiotics has promised magical gut health, the epicentre of immunity and holistic bodily health. However, the process of making your own kombucha can prove challenging.

Anyone who has tried making their own kombucha will know. It’s not difficult, but many things can go wrong in the process. From sourcing and growing a scoby – a live yeast and bacteria culture that may be off-putting to some – to fermenting some explosive kombucha. Hands up, those who have needed to clean their kitchen ceilings during the second fermentation process?

After all that’s said and done, at the end of the day, it is much easier to have someone else do the work and just purchase ready-made kombucha. Luckily, we have some homegrown brands that do a fantastic job of that. With a myriad of delicious flavours for you to choose from, you can now make these bottles of kombucha your daily go-to drink for good gut health.

Wild Kombucha

The quest for a solution always results in innovation, and therein lies the birth of homegrown brand Wild Kombucha. Suffering from eczema all his life, it was by chance that founder Jason Tan came across kombucha after brewing his own. What started out as a refreshing after-meal drink soon turned into improving his gut health, followed by relief in eczema symptoms. It was then he decided to bring its health properties into the world with Wild Kombucha. Now, you can shop for Wild Kombucha in various sizes and flavours including regular Black Tea, Chrysanthemum Goji, Lavender Lemonade, and more. Purchase it online or find it at stockists including Botanica + Co, myBurgerLab, The Hungry Tapir, Oxygen Cycle, and more.
