Kombucha elixir of health
The origin of the kombucha is glorified in mystery and many legends have been told about it. According to one legend, it was invented by a Chinese scientist looking for an elixir of longevity. According to other legends, the roots of kombucha reach back to ancient Egypt. What is clear is that the kombucha was here long ago and our ancestors knew its miraculous power.
The name Kombucha or Tibetan tea spondge suggests what this miraculous drink looks like. There is a spondge in the brown liquid on the surface, although the smell is not appealing, but its effects are so exceptional that millions of people in the world are drinking it. The US President Ronald Reagan was also treated with the Kombucha drink; you can also read about the healing effects in the book by the Russian writer Gulag Archipelago by Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
Kombucha has a sweet-sour taste and reminds us of the favorite half-fermented wine, but unlike it, Kombucha boasts super-beneficial effects on the human body. Kombucha can treat arthritis, atherosclerosis, diabetes and also relieves headaches.
Basically, Kombucha is a mixture of different yeast and bacterial cultures and produces a number of health-promoting substances, the most important of which are gluconic and glucurenic acid.
You can also find a Kombucha based drink in stores and is sold with a variety of flavors.
Kombucha is produced by fermentation to form vinegar, acidic compounds and many probiotics that contain the tea from which the kombucha is made. Green tea Kombucha contains a high content of antioxidants that have a positive effect on liver toxicity. Kombucha drinking should reduce hepatoxicity by up to 70%.
Glucuronic acid, which cleanses the body and ensures the proper functioning of the immune system and metabolism, degrades cholesterol, is a base of many important polysaccharides that form ligament or cartilage.

Kombucha also contains caffeine, vitamin B and iron. It strengthens the immune system and has an antibacterial effect. The polyphenols and acetic acid contained in the kombucha counteract the gene mutation and cancer cell growth. Unfortunately, complex scientific tests have not been conducted to date, but people’s experiences and stories speak for themselves.
Kombucha originated in Russia, where it was drank for centuries. It became more widely known only after 1945, when the number of cancer patients began to rise. At that time, doctors noticed that there were much lower rates of cancer in the two regions of the Midwest Urals. Two scientific groups were set up to explore the environment in these areas and unravel the mystery. However, they did not find any anomalies in the monitored areas and could not explain why in these two areas there are fewer sick people. The mystery was solved by chance. On one visit, when a doctor from the science team visited one of the families, he received an unknown drink from the old lady. The old lady told him how to prepare the drink and that every family in their area drinks it, as it is a tradition that lasts for centuries. According to legend, the Chinese gave the Russian tsar and his people the Kombucha spondge so that everyone could make a medicinal drink.
