Kombucha is a fermented drink made with tea, sugar, bacteria and yeast. It is a natural health beverage full of probiotics and other healthy amino acids.
Though there is no scientific evidence to support its many health claims, it has been around and used for thousands of years. Supposedly, Kombucha stimulates the immune system, prevents cancer, and improves digestion and liver function.
Kombucha originated approximately 2000 years ago in the areas of Northeast China and Manchuria, later spreading to Russia and then the rest of the world.
- Kombucha contains glucaric acid, which is commonly found in fruits and vegetables, makes the liver more efficient and is being researched as a potential cancer-preventive agent.
- The drink brings the body back into balance so that it may heal itself naturally via probiotics, which re-establish the natural ecology of the intestinal flora and are said to boost immunity, enhance mood, fight allergies, detoxify the body and rid the body of disease
