Four Trillion, that’s a big number. I’ve heard plenty of people talk about millions or billions but I never really gave the word Trillion much of a thought. That is of course until I recently grabbed a bottle of Symple Foods Kombucha at my local Marlene’s store on a recent trip.
I had watched my wife drink the unusual cocktail for years before I conjured up enough courage to drink a bottle this past summer. I finished my first whole bottle of Kombucha (GT’s Organic Raw Kombucha) and from that moment on I was a fan.
I drank Kombucha the entire summer and into the fall. One day a comment by an elderly man in a grocery store changed how I thought about my new favorite drink. “You have these rock star Kombucha brands and then you have Real Kombucha“.

Real Kombucha? Was I drinking fake Kombucha? I had read the bottles and seen there were 2 Billion CFUs of probiotics in every bottle what could be fake about that? I didn’t think much of his comments until I walked by the bottles of Symple Foods Kombucha and saw the “4 Trillion” label on the bottle.
Not even half way through the bottle I began to do the math in my head. The strongest probiotic pills I had seen in the chiller section of the store stated it had “50 Billion CFUs” of Probiotics……..and if I was drinking 4 Trillion CFUs………”
“You mean to tell me I am drinking 80 Million of those 50 Billion CFU capsules Carli?” I asked my wife.
OK, I will give you all a chance to digest that, do the math on a piece of paper, and then redo the math and let that sink in.
I was planning on throwing together some resources and sites, talk a little more in depth but to be honest I think most of you Kombucha drinkers stopped reading and just went “Wow” like I did. Instead I suggest you go check out their site and reach out to the company, pick up a bottle at your local store.
When you get a chance let me know what you think.

****The owners of Symple Foods have not compensated nor asked me to write this post. The 4 Trillion Probiotics now living in my gut……They probably had something to do with this being written.
