Each of the over 25 conditions or systems listed on the left side has around 4 pages of information including how Kombucha might relieve or help your body cure or prevent that condition. So if you, a family member, or a close friend has one of the conditions…simply click on the condition for more information.
Kombucha is an Oriental folk medicine or home remedy. Sort of a poor man’s medicine chest. Since 400 BC cures and improvements in health have been credited to Kombucha for everything from arthritis to zits. Even pets and livestock can benefit from Kombucha.
Kombucha is commonly called a mushroom because of its shape but is positively NOT a mushroom. It is actually a “complex symbiosis of friendly bacteria and beneficial yeasts” that encases itself in cellulose covering. I had an email from Russia recently including an article by the hermitess Anastasia. She claims Kombucha is a gift from outer space. Yeah, right. It does have a flying saucer shape though.
I’m not going to eat that thing….let Mikey eat it.
You don’t eat the Kombucha mushroom (culture). You drink the tart tasting fermented tea it produces. Three, 4 ounce glasses a day is the average amount needed for most people.
Briefly, here’s how it works:
You put the Kombucha mushroom in a bowl of sweet black tea (plain old orange pekoe and pekoe) and let it ferment for 12 to 14 days. The caffeine and sugar in the tea fuels the fermentation. A marvelous chemical transformation takes place resulting in a tart-tasting tea containing a cornucopia of important acids plus vitamins C, B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12. Other substances are also produced with an antibiotic, antiseptic and detoxifying properties. More complete details are in the ABOUT KOMBUCHA section. The mushroom also reproduces itself every fermentation cycle.
Yeasts in general contain many important minerals and we assume that they transfer directly and accurately in small quantities to Kombucha fermented tea:
Chromium plays a role in regulating your blood glucose level. Recent studies indicate it may prevent artery disease and help lower cholesterol levels. It also helps build muscle tissue.
Iron helps transport oxygen in your blood and releases it to all your body’s tissues.
Phosphorus works with calcium to maintain your bones’ growth and strength.
Potassium helps regulate your body fluids including your blood. It has a direct influence on your blood pressure.
Sodium is found in your body fluids. It helps keep your fluid levels balanced. It also helps your muscles contract, powering your moves.
Sulphur is needed in many parts of your body, in proteins used for hair, nails and cartilage. Also in the B vitamins thiamin and biotin and in your liver for helping remove toxins.
It is generally recommended that Kombucha should be taken early in the morning on an empty stomach. Sip it slowly rather than gulping it down. The other glasses can be taken after lunch and after dinner. For weight loss, drink Kombucha before or during meals.

You drink the tea to strengthen the body’s systems, normalize functions, improve specific conditions and overall health. Most people enjoy an average of 6 benefits from drinking Kombucha. Aged fermented tea and pieces of mushroom are useful in
