      Abstract

      Here, we present a case report of a healthy Asian woman with no past medical history presenting with severe acute liver injury associated with ingestion of kombucha. We also discuss the active ingredients in kombucha and the evidence behind its efficacy. This case emphasizes that although herbal teas have been proposed to have numerous health benefits, much is unknown about the amount that can be safely ingested.
