The purpose of the present study was to investigate the immune-enhancing activity of Kombucha. In immunosuppression experiment, the immune-enhancing effect of Kombucha in immunosuppressive mice was performed.It was showed that Kombucha at high and medium doses doses was able to overcome the CY-induced immunosuppression, significantly improves the body weight, the count of white blood cell, increases the thymus and spleen indices, enhances lymphocyte proliferation activity and peritoneal macrophage function, improves natural killer cells activity compared with negative control group. In addition, the different dose of Kombucha could significantly enhance the activity of alkaline phosphatase (AKP), superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-PX) in blood serum. Therefore, the Kombucha could be an effective immunomodulatory agent.
