I have just discovered "Kombucha", and I LOVE IT! It is said to support- Digestion, Metabolism, Immune System, Appetite Control, Weight Control, Liver Function, Body Akalinity, Anti- Aging, Cell Integrity, Healthy Skin and Hair. This is from Wikopedia- "Kombucha is the Western name for sweetened tea or tisane that has been fermented by a macroscopic solid mass of microorganisms called a "kombucha colony," usually consisting principally of Acetobacter-species and yeast cultures. It has gained much popular support within many communities, mentioned by talk show hosts and celebrities. The increase in popularity can be seen by the many commercial brands coming onto the retail market and thousands of web pages about this fermented beverage". You can read more there at- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kombucha . It will even tell you how to make Kombucha. I bought mine at a health food store, but I am soon going to make it myself. The drink I bought is called "Synergy". I bought the Gingerade, the Divine Grape, and the original. I love the flavored ones and can't wait to get other flavors to try. I believe the Grape flavored can be used in recipes called for wine if you don't use alcohol because it has the flavor of wine to me. You can use any flavor in this drink, but the ginger one was recommended. It may be a little too tart to some people so just add a little more mint. I hope you like it as much as I do.
