The policies of the F.D.A. prevent us from stating that Kombucha cures any ailment. They require scientific studies be done before claims can be made. Studies cost many millions of dollars. The pharmaceutical industry which works closely with the F.D.A. is unwilling to conduct such studies on home cures. The F.D.A. does not conduct such studies.
Even two thousand years of positive anecdotal information about Kombucha is not good enough for the F.D.A. They will not allow us to state that Kombucha can cure any illnesses. We therefore do not make any such claim. . . So as to avoid getting nasty letters from them.
The many testimonials on our web site are from customers who believe the tea has cured them of various illnesses. They are not employed or have any association with Kombucha America other than being a customer.
Million of users currently enjoy this refreshing tea daily (reported by NBC Dateline) and thousands of Internet users rave about its health benefits.

Above images do not prove health benefits, just interesting to look at.
Recent medical studies support the long held belief that Kombucha Tea may prevent cancer. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) a consitutent in the tea is antimutagenic and anti-inflammatory helping to interrupt carcinogens before they have the opportunity to attack health cells of the body. Free radicals which can damage DNA may also be decreased.
I personally have had conversations with individuals who credit Kombucha tea for arresting their cancers. I have also talked to many people who say they know of others who say they also have been cured. This comment is not to imply that Kombucha is a cure for cancer, only that some believe that it has greatly helped them or others.
Recent medical studies continue to confirm that those who drink black or green tea show a 60% to 75% decrease in various types of cancer possible due to the strong antioxidant properties of polyphenols and flavonoids found in tea as well as weak acids with antioxidant properties. Flavonoids also help prevent the low density lipoproteins (LDL) and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL), which are considered to be “good” cholesterol, from oxidizing, this gives the tea the ablility to help remedy atherosclerois and other cardiovascular problems. Flavonoids strengthen capillaries and help reduce inflammation in the cardiovascular system.
Catechins found in Kombucha also have antiviral and antibacterial properties which can help protect the body from various bacteria that are toxic such as Salmonella.

Those who suffer from diabetes have given testimonials how Kombucha has helped improve their condition. The tea has been shown to decrease blood sugar levels by limiting absorption and uptake of glucose in medical studies done on rats. Regular drinking of the tea increases urine production thereby helping to get rid of glucose before it can be assimilated. Decrease in blood pressure and prevention of renal failures were also noted.
Theanine, a major amino acid, is present in the tea and has been found to effective in lowering high blood pressure and hypertension in a clinical study involving rats and many drinker of Kombucha have stated that the tea has in fact helped to lower their high blood pressure.

"Romanow, Medical Director of the Center for Sports Medicine of Profsport, performed studies on athletes that consumed Kombucha under very intensive stress during their training and competitive cycles. Romanow found that the athletes who consumed Kombucha had an increase in maximum performance capability, an increase in cardiac output, improved gastrointestinal function, and an improved sense of well being. As a result, Romanow stated that Kombucha most probably serves as a biostimulator with a broad range of activity, able to increase aerobic capacity and improve metabolic function."
"Kombucha was proven to have anti-microbial activity against a number of pathogenic organisms. The anti-microbial properties of the ferment were attributed to the acid content. Therefore, the prevention of pathogenic growth by the consumption of the fermented tea, Kombucha, may be important in aiding immunity and illness prevention. This effect could lead to better overall health. In addition a few clinical trials have shown that Kombucha can reduce pain, assist sleep, increase aerobic capacity, and improve metabolic function."
(Excerpted from Abstract on Kombucha Tea by C.J. Greenwalt with references to studies)
Skeptics say that if "science" hasn't proven the health claims about Kombucha it just is not worth trying to see if it does work. They prefer to ignore the 2000 years of historical health claims made about Kombucha and just prefer to rely on the premise that if it is not their, or a scientist, or a physicians, idea to drink the tea then it is not a good idea to do so.
Most are not aware that there are some limited studies that do support that Kombucha can improve health. Major studies, however, cost over 100 millions of dollars to complete and that is a lot of money to spend on a home remedy just to find out if it works or not. Most all physicians will not recommend any home remedy over the expensive medications pushed by pharmecutical sales agents, who are not only trying to earn a living, but are also trying to recoup the millions spent on other studies done on other drugs by the firms that they work for. Such companies can not justify spending millions on a Kombucha study, they cannot turn a profit on it because you can easily make it for free in your own home.
Millions of people drink Kombucha daily and speak of the health benefits they have experienced... Give it a try, you will find it most enjoyable and don't worry - you will not wake-up one morning to find a pod beside you in bed. :-)
