Kombucha is believed to have a history dating as far back as 220 BCE where it was first recorded.
But what does this weird looking disc of a mushroom have to offer you might ask. Well, it has been documented to relieve symptoms such as constipation, gout, rheumatism, arthritis, high blood pressure, diabetes, headaches, MS, leaky gut and cholesterol to mention but a few and has a natural general detoxifying effect on the entire body.
The benefits that come from drinking kombucha on a regular basis can be accredited to the by-products it produces whilst living in the tea. Glucuronic acid and glucosamines help to lubricate the joints and are known for their’ cancer fighting properties. Another by product, Butyric acid which when combined with the glucuronic acid, strengthens the walls of the intestines and protects the digestive tract from parasites as well as yeast infections.
Kombucha is also a natural source of interferons which are anti-viral, help to fight tumors by allowing communication between cells to trigger the protective defenses of the immune system that eradicate pathogens or tumors.
I have had a kombucha culture steadily growing in my household for a good 12 – 13 years now, and even though my family doesn’t constantly consume the tea, it is always nice to know that it is there when needed.
Is it easy to grow and look after you might ask? My answer would have to be yes. There are some basic rules to growing and looking after kombucha, but if you follow these you should have a happy mushroom that will accompany you for the rest of your days.
For those of you who would like to start to grow their own culture, I have babies (more so during the warmer seasons) that would like to go to good homes. With your new addition to the family I give you a printout with all the info you need to know to keep your baby, happy and healthy. Please contact me for more info.
For those of you who would like to try it, but are not sure if you want to grow it yourself, I do have 1 litre bottles for sale.
