Kombucha tea offers variety of health benefits
by Mike Adams

Kombucha tea, made from black or green tea, sugar and Kombucha "starter"
culture and left to ferment in a warm environment for 10 to 12 days, has
been shown to boost the immune system, detoxify the body, balance
metabolism, boost energy and concentration, relieve arthritis or cancer
symptoms, and it can be used topically to treat ulcers and skin disorders
and can even be used in animal treatments.

What home-made drink tastes of non-alcoholic apple cider, has its origins in
Manchuria, is 2,300 years old, and claims powerful healing effects?
Kombucha tea is made from black or green tea, sugar, and the magic Kombucha
"starter" culture.
It is left to ferment in a warm environment for about 10 to 12 days until
all the sugar has been converted to a slightly sparkling, refreshing drink,
containing vitamins, enzymes, minerals and healthy organic acids.
The culture is "live" and is a symbiotic relationship between
candida-friendly yeasts and bacteria.
It looks like a creamy pancake and with every new batch of tea, a "baby"
culture is produced that can be passed on to others as a starter culture.
So what are the benefits of drinking Kombucha tea regularly?
Kombucha appears to have a general influence on the healthy function of the
body.
It is claimed to boost your own immune system, detoxify the body, encourage
the growth of good flora in the digestive system and balance the metabolism.
Many of the above conditions are known to improve when the digestive system
is purified, helpful bacteria are re-introduced to the body and cells are
oxygenated.
Besides drinking the tea it can be applied topically to the skin to make a
compress for abscesses and ulcers, a cream for skin disorders and as a hair
rinse.
Recent studies in Germany have confirmed that Kombucha has in vitro
antimicrobial activity, enhances sleep and pain thresholds, and has potent
anti-oxidant and immunopotentiating activities.
In rodent studies, both male and female mice which drank Kombucha,
demonstrated enhanced cognition, decreased appetite and weight and all lived
longer natural lives than the controls.
Kombucha tea is a food supplement and not a substitute for healthy eating.

Jan, I agree . . . This Mark Thorson character is a troll and should
be drummed off this newsgroup.

He took an anecdotal comment I made about a tea from another thread
and then reposted it as a separate comment to imply what my health
advice is. Basically, the guy has gone over the top into looney town
(as anyone can see who reads his rants).

Thanks for your posts,

Dave

You're very welcome. Mark is a lackey for Quack Barrett, doesn't know when
to shut up, makes retractions and keeps on lying.
