The Story of Kombucha…

Kombucha (Naturally derived Probiotic drink) is the final product of fermenting a Scobie (symbiotic colony of yeast & bacteria) in a sweetened tea drink for a number of days. Kombucha has been noted to help with warding away sickness, major illness, Cancers & even Longevity! Instead of taking probiotics you can simply sip on kombucha through out the week! Kombucha teas can contain up to .05% alcohol (not nearly enough to drunk off of & safe for children in regulated doses).

Variety of Flavors!

To give you a little history on Kombuchas the story goes that a small village Doctor who lived in Russia realized that after many many years of birthing generation after generation, he noticed that hardly any of his villagers were ever stricken with disease, cancers, major illnesses & experience great lengthy lives… So the Doctor decided to go around his village & talk to the Villagers to see if there was something he was missing for he knew in his Doctor schooling that humans should be subjected to greater # of illnesses. So the Doctor went out into the village & talked to the villagers. After some research he concluded that the villagers were all making this fermented beverage from these mushrooms they got off the local trees… it was a simple tea & sugar beverage with the mushroom inside. “Could it be this fermented beverage that is causing the lack of Illness in my Village,” the doctor thought…

The Doctor decided that he would travel to more of Russia & even parts of Asia to see if other villages were making this same drink. After years of traveling, traveling from Village to Village, talking to villagers & other village Doctors, the Doctor concluded that it must be the Kombucha that was keeping his Village so Healthy… Because in his travels the Villages that were not making this fermented beverage were high in sickness, disease & cancers & lived normal or short lives… Yet the Villages that were making the tea beverage we lacking these diseases & not to mention that these Villages who were drinking the Kombucha experienced Longevity.

This is just one story about Kombucha, from my research Kombucha has been around for a while (thousands of years) but the health benefits were not discussed until the early 1800’s. Recently Kombucha has been brought to the states & has been a big hype. Finally people are catching onto this great beverage with Amazing Health capabilities.

I am not stating kombucha will help any major illness, sickness or longevity, I am just sharing a piece of my life with you… In my house we drink Kombucha on a regular basis my son has been drinking Kombucha since he was 1 years of age. Both of us have great health, have never gotten sick from Booch & so we decide to continue implementing the regular usage of, “Booch” in our house. Hardly ever will you not find Kombucha in our fridge… You have the choice to hop on the “Booch” Train or not… in the end the Choice is yours…

Peace Be with you…
