From: (go here to see the whole article)
Drinking Kombucha promotes good health and helps millions of
people with its excellent detoxifying and immune-enhancing qualities.
There are no known negative reactions from drinking
kombu tea, except for improper brewing methods.
-Kombucha culture has a wide range of organic acids, vitamins and
enzymes that give it its extraordinary value. It contains the range of
vitamins, particularly B1, B2, B6 and B12, that provide the body with
energy, help to process fats and proteins, and which are vital for the
normal functioning of the nervous system. 
-There is also vitamin C which is a potent detoxifier, immune booster and enhancer of vitality.
Probiotic Organic Acids
-There are two organic acids produced by Kombucha culture which

encourage the activity of the resident bifidobacteria, thus restoring
a healthy balance with the bacteroides:
-Lactic acid which is essential for healthy digestive action (through
its derivative lactobacilli) and for energy production by the liver, and is not found in the tissues of people with cancer.
-Acetic acid which is an antiseptic and inhibitor of pathogenic bacteria.
Kombucha’s Vital Organic Acids

Other valuable organic acids produced by the Kombucha culture, some of
which have a more direct effect on other organs include:
-Glucuronic acid, normally produced by a healthy liver, is a powerful
detoxifier and can readily be converted into glucosamines,
the foundations of our skeletal system.
-Usnic acid has selective antibiotic qualities which can partly deactivate viruses.
-Citric acid is an antiascorbic.
-Oxalic acid encourages the intercellular production of energy, and is a preservative.
-Malic acid also helps the liver to detoxify.
-Gluconic acid is a sugar product which can break down to caprylic acid
to work symbiotically with —
-Butyric acid (produced by the yeast) protects human cellular
membranes, and combined with Gluconic acid which is produced by
the bacteria,strengthens the walls of the gut in order to combat yeast
infections such as Candida.
-Nucleic acids, like RNA and DNA, transmit information to the cells on
how to perform correctly and regenerate.
