About Our Kombucha
Kombucha “a variety of fermented, lightly effervescent sweetened black or green tea drinks that are commonly intended as functional beverages…” – Wikipedia.
Kombucha is a wild fermented tea with a history of health benefits that have been enjoyed for over 6000 years. While its exact origins are unknown, it is thought Kombucha got its name from a Korean physician called Kombu who healed a Japanese emperor with his soothing medicinal tea, hence the name Kombu-cha (tea).
Kombucha is a symbiotic culture of probiotic yeasts and bacteria cultivated in sweetened green or black tea. Kombucha is a slightly acidulous self carbonated beverage with a low sugar content and jam-packed with beneficial active ingredients including:
- Acetic acid which helps form fatty acids “the good fats”
- Gluconic acid which has anti-fungal properties and which occurs when bacteria and yeast consume glucose
- Lactic acid, which is a diverse group of bacteria most of which naturally occurs as flora within the body, producing beneficial effects such as:
- stimulating the immune system
- alleviating bowel problems
- assisting anti-fungal actions
- promoting cell regeneration

How much should i drink?
We love our Kombucha and believe that getting your food to ‘work’ for your body is where it’s at. You are a divine expression of individuality and have a responsibility to take care of the planet that is your body. Kombucha is an old medicine still in scientific infancy. It’s important to always touch base with yourself and remember that what’s good for one might not be great for another. The body never lies, so listen to it! Deano drinks at least a litre a day!
Keep things simple, pure & organic, healthy gut = healthy mind.
