Tea Contain Bacteria More Efficacious?

Kombucha tea is tea that is mixed with bacteria, this herb is claimed even more nutritious than regulartea. The content of bacteria and yeasts in Kombucha tea drinks cause it feels a bit sour because of the fermentation. There is also a call tea fungus or mushroom tea, because it is brewed plate actually consists of colonies of bacteria and fungi that are symbiotic with each other. Kambucha name taken from a Korean physician, Dr. Kombu which brings the traditional ingredients of more than 2,000 years old was to Japan in the 5th century. This herb far imported from China as an offering to the ruler of Japan at that time, Emperor Ingyoo.

Since then, Kombucha tea began to be known as a health drink and spread rapidly to all corners of the world. Now the drink is popular in many areas including Russia, Europe and various countries in Asia. Various claims arose, some say Kombucha tea can lower cholesterol and treat cancer. Some even put it on the scalp to overcome baldness, so nicknamed as well as a wonder tonic. Still, not everyone believes in the usefulness. Experts in the disease from the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Brent A Bauer, including one health practitioner who doubted the various claims about Kombucha tea which he somewhat exaggerated.

Until now there has been no single human clinical trials that prove the benefits of Kombucha tea. Not that there is no benefit, but for now claims it has not had a scientific basis, Never mind the benefit, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States would never report a poisoning victim of Kombucha tea. In April 1995, 2 women admitted to hospital due to acidosis or excess acid in body fluids.

Both victims were drinking tea regularly every day, since 2 months previously. One of the two patients eventually died, while the other one can be saved even in the treatment of heart had stopped. Metabolic acidosis or increased levels of acidity in body fluids is one of the side effects of Kombucha tea. Other side effects have ever been reported is the poisoning and liver damage due to forced sbekerja harder to metabolize acids. Yet there has never been an appeal from related parties not to drink Kombucha tea. Food and Drug Administration in the United States only appealed to the tea drunk in a reasonable amount, approximately not more than 4 ounces (120 mL) per day.
