During the 19th century, Russia was only one of the countries that noticed a significant increase in cancer rates. Soviet researchers looked at cancer rates by region. They found out that some areas were immune to cancer while other areas were dealing with a cancer epidemic.
By doing a deeper examination, they discovered a connection between low cancer rated and high levels of Kombucha intake. In that time, both Russia and Germany made many studies about the health benefits of Kombucha and its potential cancer-fighting properties. Unfortunately, most of that data was lost during the cold war and the political transitions.
The good news is that these transitions were the reason why the West World became aware of the effectiveness of Kombucha. Not long ago, most of us have heard of this potent antioxidant. However, there are not many studies examining the benefits of Kombucha since there is little profit to be made by corporations. Well, you can make it at your own home for 50 cents per gallon.
Kombucha is prepared from sweetened tea (black tea or green tea) fermented by a colony of bacteria and yeast. You will get an elixir that possesses powerful properties for fighting arthritis, cancer, and other degenerative diseases. It is an excellent source of antioxidants, Glutamic acid and vitamins like vitamin B. It offers plenty of therapeutic benefits.
Two reasons why you should regularly consume Kombucha:
Detoxification: One of the most important benefits of Kombucha is its ability to help the body in producing more enzymes and bacterial acids that our liver and kidneys use to detoxify our body. Many clinical studies showed that glucaric acid is very beneficial for cancer patients. Ronald Reagan is a real proof. After being diagnosed with cancer in 1987, he started drinking Kombucha regularly and he managed to eliminate his cancer completely. He died in 2004 of old age.
Digestive and Gut health: Kombucha is extremely useful for our digestive health. It is a pro-biotic drink because it is fermented by a colony of bacteria and yeast. When you feel like the function of your digestive system is disrupted or you suffer from other digestive problem, don’t hesitate to try Kombucha.
In the past, it was very difficult to find Kombucha in the US. However, today, it is easily available at most grocery stores. You may also purchase a SCOBY and prepare your own. It may take some of your time, but it is worth trying. You will spend a lot of money and the best part is that you will have no doubts about the quality of Kombucha!
