(NaturalNews) Another drink reaches a breakthrough in the consumer market. The beverage is called Kombucha, more known to the Chinese as 'Tea of Immortality' and now dubbed as 'The Wonder Drink' because of its several health benefits and medicinal qualities. With more literature being published regarding its effectiveness in weight management, immune system enhancement as well as its role in improving digestion, boosting energy, protecting the hair and teeth, and battling certain types of cancer, the fondness over this drink grows further.

The growing curiosity over kombucha

Although the drink has just recently become a trend in the country and the rest of the world, Kombucha drinking has been practiced in Manchuria since the Tsin Dynasty in 220 B.C. The drink later on found its way to Russia before 1910 until it made its way to Germany and Europe, and now the rest of the world.

A lot of people may find it odd that this health drink actually comes from yeast and bacteria. It is made through the process of fermenting sugar and tea. The natural fermentation results in a thin and pancake-like substance which is called SCOBY or Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast.

Why is kombucha called 'the wonder drink?'

Kombucha has a great role to play in health. It is an all around drink that has been found to cure many health conditions as well as prevent certain ailments. For this reason, the fermented combination of tea and sugar is aptly called 'the wonder drink.'

First of all, Kombucha is great for detoxifying. It contains bacterial acids and enzymes which help lessen the workload of the liver in cleansing. Aside from promoting a healthy liver, there are studies that demonstrate its effectiveness in the treatment of cancer including those that affect the pancreas and the breasts.

The Kombucha phenomenon also shows the ability of this drink to boost the immune system. As a matter of fact, numerous herbalists typically use Kombucha to deal with rheumatism, diabetes, gout, aging, fatigue and even AIDS. Because the drink is rich in glucurocic acid, also produced by the liver, to eliminate free radicals and other toxins, the immune system is empowered which means more capability for the human body can fight off diseases.

Being a probiotic drink, Kombucha is also known to improve digestion. It also has a role to play in treating the symptoms of anxiety and depression. Its antioxidant properties also make it an energy booster. For these and more reasons, the fan base of this wonder drink is only expected to increase.
