Kombucha - A fermented tea drink

Kombucha refers to any of a variety of fermented, lightly effervescent sweetened black or green tea drinks that are commonly used as functional beverages for their unsubstantiated health benefits. Kombucha is produced by fermenting tea using a "symbiotic 'colony' of bacteria and yeast" (SCOBY). Actual contributing microbial populations in SCOBY cultures vary, but the yeast component generally includes Saccharomyces (a probiotic fungus) and other species, and the bacterial component almost always includes Gluconacetobacter xylinus to oxidize yeast-produced alcohols to acetic and other acids. The geographic origin of kombucha is unknown, and its etymology is uncertain. Historically, kombucha has been home-brewed or locally brewed, but in the late 1990s, commercially bottled kombucha became available in North American retail stores. It is known in Chinese as cháj?n (??), Japanese as k?cha-kinoko (?????), Korean as hongchabeoseotcha (?????) and Russian as chaynyy grib (?????? ????). These names translate literally to "tea fungus" or "tea mushroom.". Remember, Mushroom "1001 benefits" called Kombucha is not Cambodia. Although the two were almost identical name, Kombucha Mushroom not come from the country of Cambodia. So there in no link between Kombucha and Kamboja. Kombucha name itself, if followed in his footsteps is derived from two words, namely 'kombu' and 'cha'. 'Kombu' is the name of a Korean physician who lived in the 5th century AD. Meanwhile, the word 'cha' is derived from the Chinese which means 'tea'. According to the story, in about 414 BC, the emperor of Japan named Inkyo. One time the emperor suffered from chronic digestive diseases. The cause is prolonged constipation. Then, on the advice of the physician of the domestic ginseng, The Emperor consume herb teas are fermented by a fungus concoction physician. After taking it, the emperor's illness can be cured. Physician services over the emperor members of the herb name 'kombucha', which means the tea concoction of a physician named Kombu. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-bH0RP-jf8 Kombucha has been claimed to cure many diseases and to have a wide range of health benefits; however, there is a lack of high-quality evidence to support such claims. There are several documented cases of serious adverse effects, including fatalities, related to kombucha drinking, and there is the potential for contamination during home preparation. Since the mostly unclear benefits of kombucha drinking do not outweigh the known risks, it has not been recommended for therapeutic use.
