Does kombucha heal what ails?
It is an interesting paradox: For a packaged food to have shelf life, it must have no life. And so most of the packaged foods we eat are, essentially, dead.
Then along comes this bubbly buggy brew called, among many other things, “kombucha.”
I discovered kombucha one day when the refrigerator ran out of beer. “What’s this?” I asked?
“Kombucha!” replied the daughter. “Its full of bugs. You’ll love it!”
Upon opening the bottle, I heard the gentle hissing of bubbles rushing to find their way free.... “Shhhhhhhhhhhhh!” The taste I found to be crisp, sweet, tart and incredibly refreshing.
The daughter has since moved on in life, but the refrigerator is still filled with jars of her kombucha. She was right. I do love it. Still, I wonder...
Can kombucha heal what ails?
