Thanks!

This is a month old. It doesn't matter what you mean, as this is a forum and we can only read what you actually write. I am not required to ferret out your meaning nor read every response you make to a comment. Once you realised your question was being criticised, you should have edited it for clarity.

Crowbar, I commented on the smart-ass comment before yours. I stated: "I mean..is it bad for you? good for you? There are so many different things on google. Not that i didn't try googling it before you posted this comment. I'm looking for an answer from someone who has actually tried it and can give me feedback. But thanks anyway..I suppose. – Farrah Apr 19 at 0:25" So please take you sarcasm elsewhere, unless you'd actually like to answer my question.

This was the question I read: I've been hearing a LOT about Kombucha. What is it? What is in it? what is it used for? Thanks! Which has none of what you said. And I'm not the only one who supplied this answer. *shrugs*

I don't see the point in being snarky. Farrah is new and said in the above comment that she wanted specifically to get info from people here. I can understand trusting comments here more than info from a random google search. Also, don't you remember being new to PH and just being eager to ask questions and share stuff and communicate?

I love it! It has helped heal my gut from chronic IBS symptoms. Kombucha is an all natural fermented tea full of probiotics and other healthy amino acids. It helps re-establish the natural ecology of the intestinal flora. Its probiotics help to boost immunity, enhance mood, fight allergies, detoxify the body and rid the body of disease. The chinese have been making it for decades. It has personally helped me curb sugar cravings, relieve fatigue, get um regular, digest food better and rebuild my good stomach flora -- but each persons experience varies.

However, Kombucha is NOT a panacea ??? it doesn???t cure anything. It brings the body back into balance so that it may heal itself naturally. That is how it is able to do so much ??? because it works with your body???s natural immune system.

You can brew your own using a mother SCOBY which you can buy online or from someone near you. Must cheaper and healthier than the store bought stuff, and you can make all the flavours you'd like.
