Kombucha tea is a fermented beverage made from sweetened tea that has been fermented by a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast called SCOBYs (Symbiotic Culture Of Bacteria and Yeast). Its particular and effervescent flavor reminds us of everything from apple cider vinegar to some variety of champagne, depending on the type of tea.
Kombucha consumption has become very widespread among the Health Conscious community in the United States. It is sold in all organic and healthy supermarkets, and it is even very common to be able to drink it as a refreshment in restaurants and cafes of this style. And as with everything, good or bad, what starts in North America sooner or later arrives here: so, kombucha tea is already starting to be a topic of conversation in the social networks of the world of food.
SCOBY or symbiotic culture of kombucha
Similar in appearance and color to a thick crepe, the kombucha SCOBY colony is responsible for transforming sweetened tea into a probiotic drink. The microorganisms most commonly found in culture are Saccharomycodes ludwigii, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Brettanomyces bruxellensis, Bacterium xylinum, Bacterium gluconicum, Bacterium xylinoides, Bacterium katogenum, Pichia fermentans, and Candida stellata.
From this transformation and fermentation process, in addition to all the probiotic bacteria, we obtain vitamins (especially group B and C), amino acids, enzymes, and organic acids that are beneficial to health, such as glucuronic acid (with great detox power), lactic (helps digestion and improves blood circulation) and acetic acid (natural antibiotic).
BENEFITS OF KOMBUCHA TEA
The first uses of kombucha tea date from 221 BC. C., during the Chinese Tsin dynasty. Of Asian origin and called immortality tea, traditional Chinese medicine has used it for more than two millennia, since many benefits are attributed to this probiotic drink with purifying, antioxidant, energetic and restorative properties of the immune system. Although there is not a lot of scientific evidence on it, there is experimental evidence, and a lot of it, coming from people who have been taking it for years. Some of the benefits that stand out are the following:
improves digestive problems and intestinal transit
improves energy levels
strengthens the immune system
works as an antibiotic that improves recurrent infections such as candidiasis
decreases premenstrual symptoms
normalizes blood pressure
