Kombucha is a healthful, tonic drink made from tea, sugar, and symbiotic bacterial culture. Kombucha benefits are plentiful. Kombucha has a reputation for preventing and curing cancer, regulating blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, and improving heart health. It is also used as an aid to weight loss. It increases stamina, and refreshes. But I’m too busy to play with a Kombucha mushroom and its easier to buy Kombucha at the health food store, on the rare occasion that I can find it in stock. Fair enough. But should you decide that you want to fit Kombucha making into your busy lifestyle, here’s 6 tips that might help.
