What's in Kombucha that makes it so good for you?

It's a long post - but well worth bookmarking for future reference.

Kombucha Tea contains Live Enzymes. Enzymes are crucial for proper digestion, absorption of vital nutrients, and all other functions of the body. (Enzymes are chemical catalysts.)

It contains the following substances crucial for vibrant health and longevity:

Glucoronic Acid: Made in large amounts by a healthy liver, its function is to detoxify the body. Toxins and foreign substances which are bound by Glucoronic acid are made water-soluble and cannot be reabsorbed by the body. Glucoronic acid impedes the progression of viral infections and dissolves gallstones. Since detoxification and purification are key to curing any illness, Glucoronic acid plays a vital role as one of the main components of the Kombucha tea. Glucoronic acid has been used successfully in the treatment of cancer patients due to its ability to bring about an increase in the body's own defenses. ·

Hyaloronic Acid: A key component of connective tissue. Hyaluronic acid binds water, forming a gel-like substance which holds the cells together. ·

Chondroitin Sulfate Acid: A basic component of cartilage, bone and blood vessels. ·

Mucoitin-Sulfuric Acid: A basic component of cartilage, bone and blood vessels. ·

Heparin: A polysaccharide also produced by the liver and used as an anticoagulant in the treatment and prevention of thrombosis (blood clots) and embolism (obstruction of blood vessels). Heparin also has properties which promote the transfer of fat. ·

Lactic Acid: Another key component of the tea. It is a ferment of the friendly bacteria lactobacillus acidophilus. Lactic acid plays a part in human cell metabolism and helps prevent growth of putrefactive bacteria in the large intestine. Acidophilus provides good intestinal flora necessary for a strong immune system and is recommended after the use of antibiotics. The lactic acid found in Kombucha is highly ionized and is superior to the acetic acid found in vinegar. Lactic acid increases oxygen in the blood. This may be why an increase in energy is almost immediately noticed after drinking Kombucha tea. Lactic acid is rarely present in the connective tissues of cancer patients and the lack of it leads to oxygen deficiency (hypoxia). ·

Acetic Acid: Helps to establish a good pH balance ·

Tannic Acid: Antiviral and antibacterial ·

Usnic Acid: A substance with strong antibacterial and antiviral properties ·

Folic Acid: Assists in forming body proteins, genetic material, and formation of hemoglobin. It is a vitamin essential to the production of red blood cells by the bone marrow. ·

Fission Yeast: The yeast enzymes in the tea respond to the living microorganisms in the body and actually fight against troublesome yeast infections such as Candida. Unhealthy, problem causing yeasts are reproduced with spores or by budding while the yeast present in Kombucha is produced by means of fission like bacteria. Yeast is also a common source of protein and B-complex vitamins. Kombucha Tea contains all the B-Vitamins including: ·

B1 Thiamin is an oxidizing agent in the release of energy synthesis of certain nerve-regulating substances ·

B2 Riboflavin is necessary in hydrogenation processes that release energy from carbohydrates. ·

B3 Niacin works with vitamins B1 and B2 to produce energy in cells. It is needed to change glucose to glycogen; the only storage form of carbohydrates. Niacin prevents and aids in cardiovascular diseases, lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood, protects against pollutants and toxins, relieves migraines and alleviates arthritis. Niacin expands the blood vessels thus increasing blood flow. ·

B6 Pyridoxine aids in metabolizing and absorbing amino acids. It also plays a role in red blood cell formation. It is required for the proper functioning of over 60 enzymes, helps clear up acne and dry skin, inhibits cataract development and protects the lenses of the eyes. ·

B12 Cobalamin is essential for the proper functioning of all cells in the body, particularly blood producing cells of the bone marrow and the cells of the nervous system and digestive tract. It is a powerful rejuvenator and energizer. It improves memory, concentration, and prevents mental deterioration. Kombucha Elixir is an excellent choice for any active person looking for a real energy lift before or after physical exercise or for aiding digestion, during cleansing programs, during illnesses, etc..
