Today, we will address the particular concern regarding drinking kombucha for Candida. Many of you have read that kombucha is a wonderful cure for Candida and yeast infections, however, concern was raised when you discovered that kombucha actually contains live yeast and bacteria. Infact, there has been so many people drinking kombucha and singing the praises of their own kombucha health benefits, many health gurus are now toting it as the "next big thing" (ha ha even though it has been aorund for thousands of years in Eastern countries!). If that's the case, how can ingesting yeast actually help get rid of it?
Before we begin, I thought it would be beneficial to answer the question "What is Kombucha?". As many of you that are reading about this might need to get caught up to speed. So here is the quick info on kombucha:
Kombucha tea is a healthy living drink, originated from the Far East that is made by fermenting sugar with tea and with the kombucha culture (more on the word culture in the next paragraph). Depending on the tea used for fermentation, it tastes either a bit like apple cider or champagne.
The Kombucha culture used for fermentation looks like a beige pancake, and despite what many think it is NOT a mushroom. The best way to identify it is a Symbiotic Colony of Yeast And Bacteria (SCOBY).
The process is rather uncomplicated: the culture is placed in sweetened black or green tea. The Kombucha culture digests the sugar and produces a range of vital organic acids, amino acids and enzymes. The result is a bowl exploding with health-giving organic acids, enzymes, powerful vitamins and probiotic microorganisms.
You can use a variety of teas (and even most herbs, like honeybush or Jiaogulan), but we advocate that for peeps that are first starting out, a combination of Green Tea and Black Tea is best. In other articles we will discuss kombucha recipes, but for now we wanted to at least let our readers know what we are talking about.
So How Can It Be That Kombucha (which contains yeast), Be Good For Getting Rid Of a Yeast Infection and/or Candida?
Here we go... The yeast found in kombucha IS NOT the same as the unwanted yeast your body excretes through Candida and yeast infections . In fact, yeast overgrowth is the result but the reason is often due to too much sugar in ones diet. So, regarding sugar:
Most of the sugar found in kombucha is converted after ten to fourteen days from brewing. This means the more you wait, the less sugar there will be present when you drink. If you constantly want to have less sugar you will need to bottle your own tea to last you for about 5 days BEFORE you begin to start a new round of brew.
I hope by now you are beginning to see that not all yeast is created equal and that the yeast in kombucha is not the challenge with it concerning candida issues... it's the sugar! BUT as you have read if you can brew kombucha at home, or limit your intake of the store bought brands, you can limit and control the amount your body receives. If you are suffering from Candida, I would highly suggest cutting out all sugars for a week and then incorporating some kombucha into your diet slowly to replace the bad yeast from the candida overgrowth with the good yeast from the kombucha tea.
