HOW TO MAKE KOMBUCHA TEA?

It's made by adding specific strains of bacteria, yeast and sugar to black or green tea, then allowing it to ferment for a week or more.

Kombucha is thought to originate in China or Japan. It's made by adding specific strains of bacteria, yeast and sugar to black or green tea, then allowing it to ferment for a week or more.

During this process, bacteria and yeast form a mushroom-like film on the surface of the liquid. This is why kombucha is also known as "mushroom tea." This blob is a living symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, or a SCOBY, and can be used to ferment new kombucha. The fermentation process produces acetic acid (also found in vinegar) and several other acidic compounds, trace levels of alcohol and gases that make it carbonated. A large amount of bacteria also grow in the mixture. Although there is still no evidence for the probiotic benefits of kombucha, it contains several species of lactic-acid bacteria which may have probiotic function. Probiotics provide your gut with healthy bacteria. These bacteria can improve many aspects of health, including digestion, inflammation and even weight loss.

How to Make Homemade Kombucha: Overview

The general order of things goes something like this

1. Make SCOBY (1 to 4 weeks) – to make the “mother”

2. First Fermentation (6 to 10 days) – to make the actual kombucha

3. Second Fermentation (3 to 10 days) – to carbonate the kombucha

Health benefit of Kombucha

- Kombucha helped prevent the growth and spread of cancerous cells due to its high concentration of tea polyphenols and antioxidants

- Kombucha slowed down the digestion of carbs, which reduced blood sugar levels. It also improved liver and kidney function

- Kombucha can greatly improve two markers of heart disease, “bad” LDL and “good” HDL cholesterol, in as few as 30 days

- Kombucha made from black or green tea appears to have strong antibacterial properties, particularly against infection-causing bacteria and Candida yeasts

- Drinking kombucha regularly reduces liver toxicity caused by toxic chemicals, in some cases by at least 70%
