In brief: Uncertain

Kombucha is used as a tea for many indications, such as memory loss, and to strengthen the immune system. Topically, it is used for pain relief.
There are no studies to support it being effective for either use.

Kombucha tea is made by fermenting sweetened black tea with a flat, pancake-like culture of yeasts and bacteria called the "Kombucha mushroom." Different Kombucha brews may contain different types. Since cultures & preparation methods vary, Kombucha tea may contain contaminants such as molds and fungi, some of which can cause illness.
