If you’ve read my first post on brewing your own Kombucha Tea, you must be wondering whatever happened with our own “controlled study”. Did drinking kombucha tea lower Hubby’s cholesterol?
For 4 months, Hubby stopped taking his 10mg of Lipitor, and instead drank a glass of kombucha tea every day with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
To make it more palatable, I experimented with a second fermentation, adding a little blueberry pomegranate juice to the strained kombucha and leaving it for another 2-4 days on the counter in air-tight bottles. The yeast in the kombucha feeds off the sugar in the juice, naturally carbonating in the process.
The result is something that reminds me of pink champagne, dry, bubbly and effervescent. So guess what? Drumroll please…
Kombucha tea DID lower Hubby’s cholesterol. Here are the numbers:
Doc said, no more pills, just keep doing what you’re doing! Other than drinking kombucha, nothing had changed. Hubby still ran 10k 3 times a week, ate what he normally ate, just drinking kombucha made all the difference.
