A healthy alternative to soft drinks!

 

Hi there

Just made my first “SCOBY” from a bottle of SynerChi live kombucha I bought a month ago in Dublin, now for the second stage of making my own Kombucha drink.  Well, you might be wondering what a scoby is!  Firstly, it’s an acronym for “symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast” ,which is a living organism that ferments tea ,sugar and purified water into vitamins, enzymes and acids .

Now it is ready, and i’ll leave it in a warm dark place for 5 to 10 days, testing it every few days so it doesn’t become too tart,  I’ll let you know how I get on. 🙂

You may wonder why I’m excited about this, well it’s twofold: firstly, I have primary biliary cirrhosis of the liver and secondly, my husband has come off all  fizzy drinks and I’m looking for alternative drinks for him.  However, the former reason is the most vital at the moment, as my blood readings for my liver have risen, so hence I’m trying this,which is a lot cheaper than buying a bottle of it  every couple of days. It’s supposed to be good for the liver and kidneys, clearing out all toxins.  here’s a  few website to find out more about kombucha.:
