Composition of Kombucha

Kombucha’s composition contains various enzymes, and flavonoids, including gallocatechins. These help in the prevention of atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular problems. Other catechins are present exhibiting anti-carcinogenic, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, anti-viral. Also anti-mutagenic and anti-inflammatory properties are present.

Much more information on the composition of Kombucha can be found by clicking Here but it is a lengthy and a very technical read.

Kombucha is not a pharmaceutical drug!

Composition – Probiotics

Composition of Kombucha Tea contains various probiotic bacteria and yeasts.

“A kombucha culture is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY), similar to mother of vinegar, containing one or more species each of bacteria and yeasts, which form a zoogleal mat known as a “mother. The cultures may contain one or more of the yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Brettanomyces bruxellensis, Candida stellata, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, and Zygosaccharomyces bailii.

The bacterial component of kombucha comprises several species, almost always including Gluconacetobacter xylinus (G. xylinus, formerly Acetobacter xylinum), which ferments alcohols produced by the yeasts into acetic and other acids, increasing the acidity and limiting ethanol content.[citation needed] The population of bacteria and yeasts found to produce acetic acid has been reported to increase for the first 4 days of fermentation, decreasing thereafter.[citation needed] G. xylinum has been shown to produce microbial cellulose, and is reportedly responsible for most or all of the physical structure of the “mother”, which may have been selectively encouraged over time for firmer (denser) and more robust cultures by brewers.” … exerted from Wikipeida

Composition – Metabolic Acids

Acetic acid – detoxifies

Carbonic acid – presents in blood aids in CO2 release and regulation of blood pH levels.

Folic Acid – a B vitamin, works with vitamin B12 in reducing homocysteine, a risk factor for heart disease. Supplementation may prevent, correct deficiencies caused by, or be helpful with, Aging, Cancer, Crohn’s disease, Heart disease (atherosclerosis & hypercholesterolemia). Helpful with Immunodepression (including AIDS & CFIDS). Helpful with Memory loss (including Alzheimer’s disease), Osteoporosis, Periodontal disease.

Gluconic acid – acts as a food preservative . Is a product of the breakdown of glucose.

Glucuronic acid – Vital to detoxification of the body also produced by the healthy human liver. A precursor for mucopolysaccharide which helps in the prevention of the aging of skin tissue. There is a scientific dispute as to whether or not Kombucha’s composition contains this acid or its precursors.

L(+) Lactic acid – detoxifies and assist blood circulation. Helps prevent bowel decay and constipation. Aids in balancing acids and alkaline in the body. Believed to help in the prevention of cancer by helping to regulate blood pH levels.

Usnic acid – inhibits viruses an anti-bacterial agent.

Amino acids (various, including Theanine) – anti-aging properties, aids in the body’s production of Growth Hormone (GH). Hydroxy acids (various)

B3 (Niacin, niacinamide) – believed to aid in prevention of arthritic conditions, hair loss and free radical damage. Aids in healing of skin tissue. Promotes sexual excitation and stamina, also used as a tranquilizer substitute in high doses.
