What is Kombucha tea? Can it Cure Cancer?

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.  

Have you heard of Kombucha?  It’s the beverage the ancient Chinese called the “Immortal Health Elixir?” It has been around for more than 2,000 years and has a rich history of health benefits like preventing and fighting cancer, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases.

Kombucha is made from sweetened tea that’s been fermented by a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (a SCOBY, a.k.a. “mother” because of its ability to reproduce, or “mushroom” because of its appearance), Kombucha didn’t gain prominence in the West until recently.

A co-worker recently introduced me to GTSKombucha tea and after just a small sip of it with Chai I was hooked, it has such a cool, crisp flavor.  Also because of the reported health benefits including cancer prevention and a digestion aid I immediately headed to Target to purchase a few more bottles.

I was hoping hubby would also give it a try as it might help with his intestinal disorder but after reading that it also contained traces of alcohol he said “nope”!  I on the other hand have been drinking several ounces daily and no, not because of the alcohol content, but in hopes that it will increase my energy and help me stay hydrated.

The bottles clearly state that “Kombucha is a food product and is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease”   However, according to Food Renegade there are several health benefits associated with Kombucha including:

KOMBUCHA HEALTH BENEFIT #1 — DETOXIFICATION

Detoxification produces healthy livers and aides cancer prevention. One of kombucha’s greatest health benefits is its ability to detox the body. It is rich in many of the enzymes and bacterial acids your body produces and/or uses to detox your system, thus reducing your pancreatic load and easing the burden on your liver.

KOMBUCHA HEALTH BENEFIT #2 — JOINT CARE

Kombucha contains glucosamines, a strong preventive and treatment all forms of arthritis. Glucosamines increase synovial hyaluronic acid production. Hyaluronic acid functions physiologically to aid preservation of cartilage structure and prevent arthritic pain,with relief comparable to NSAIDs and advantage over glucocorticoids.

KOMBUCHA HEALTH BENEFIT #3 — AIDS DIGESTION AND GUT HEALTH

Because it’s naturally fermented with a living colony of bacteria and yeast, Kombucha is aprobiotic beverage. This has a myriad of benefits such as improved digestion, fighting candida (harmful yeast) overgrowth, mental clarity, and mood stability. As such, it’s noted for reducing or eliminating the symptoms of fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, etc.

Have you tried any of the Kombucha Teas?  If soplease share your results as I am very interested in hearing what others have experienced.

    I have to be careful with what I eat or drink because of all of my allergies but sounds interesting.

    I tried a little when my husband bought a bottle. I actually want to start making my own probiotic drinks at home because they are so expensive at the store. I thought about starting with homemade ginger ale/beer. I checked out a book from the library and watched a few youtube videos so it doesn’t look to hard to make. I bought everything I need to make it. I just need to peel my ginger and get my bug started.

      Sonya, that sounds great, if/when you do, let me know if the process was easy. I hope you are enjoying your day.
