Kombucha Tea… is it the miracle home remedy drink?

Categories: Articles

We all are searching for more energy and rejuvenation. The kombucha tea is supposed to remedy many ailments. If this is true, why aren’t we all drinking this potent but delicious beverage that improves health?

Our neighboring health food store sells kombucha, bottled and flavored and I’ve seen fellow students drinking it but was not sure what it was. KOMBUCHA (pronounced kom-Boo-cha) is a handmade Chinese mushroom tea that is delicately cultured for 30 days. The beverage contains microorganisms of lactic acid and related symbioses of bacteria and yeast, the tea fungus. A Kombucha mushroom is not a real mushroom; people only call it a mushroom. It is something like lichen and when grown it looks like a pancake floating on the surface of the tea that it is brewed in. The tea made from it does not have the flavor of mushrooms. The taste when mixed with green, orange or black tea leaves it is more like a wine/ apple-cider drink. The “mushroom” is fast growing and turns the tea in which it grows into radical proteins, beneficial acids, and vitamins that work to quickly clean and detoxify your blood. It has active enzymes, probiotics, amino acids, antioxidants and polyphenols. Glucuronic acid (debated}, or its precursors are also present in Kombucha Tea, this acid is a metabolite that is produced by a healthy liver and aids in the detoxification of the body. By drinking Kombucha Tea daily you may help prevent your body tissues from absorbing all the toxins and poisons found in our environment that may cause illness. The tea-mushroom is a real tiny biochemical factory “a wonder mushroom†that has healing power for many diseases.

Some of the diseases that this tea helps is headaches, constipation, arteriosclerosis, pain in the limbs, gout, rheumatism, arthritis, intestinal & digestive disturbances and enhances or stimulates the metabolism, helps with high blood pressure, fight against cancer and diabetes, just to name a few.

In summary one can say that Kombucha mushroom tea taken for well being has proven itself as an excellent prophylactic against many general body dysfunctions. If this tea has so many helpful benefits & few side-effects why not have a glass or two a day. So look no more for the fountain of youth elixir, the wonder mushroom successfully counters aging problems therefore contributing to life extension. It’s cool & refreshing & tastes good-go for it-cheers to your longevity!”
