Kombucha is a fermented drink with a tea base. As I have mentioned in a previous post, gut wellness is the key to overall health. https://www.lifecoachservice.net/blog.html
There are many factors necessary in creating optimal gut health; kombucha is rich in probiotics and can serve as one avenue toward maintaining and restoring the beneficial bacteria that everyone requires. It is very expensive to buy readymade, but is extremely cost effective to make at home.

Several years ago I did a trial with kombucha, following the specific way that my friend had made hers. Her family enjoyed it being made from a certain kind of peach flavored tea. I tried it her way first and had little success.
After searching the internet, I found and used the simplest recipe with great success! Someone please clap for me! Thank you. OK. I recently decided to give it another try, because my family has been on a gut healing quest for about a year now. This time I decided not to try something fancy until I perfected the basics. Using the simplest method, I had success. I am on the third batch and my “mother” has multiplied, now I have two. So, on this third batch I am making two gallons instead of one. Yay for this as one gallon just isn’t enough at my house.
Other than tea, sugar, and water, you will need a “mother” or SCOBY, which stands for symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast. Ask your health food friends or go to the local health food store to find someone in your area that would share a “mother” or SCOBY with you. Otherwise you will have to buy one. There are many online sources.
Here is the recipe that I used: http://www.kombuchacultures.com/kombucha_history.html
Blessings on your success, if you choose to try this wonderful, nutritious, and beneficial drink.
