Most conventional nutritional health 'wisdom' is really false. Margarine is not better than butter. In fact margarine should never be eaten. We really aren't smarter than God. Our bodies need good saturated fat.

From: http://www.anahatabalance.com/teakombucha2.html (go here to see the whole article) Drinking Kombucha promotes good health and helps millions of people with its excellent detoxifying and immune-enhancing qualities. There are no known negative reactions from drinking kombu tea, except for improper brewing methods. -Kombucha culture has a wide range of organic acids, vitamins and enzymes that give it its extraordinary value. It contains the range of B vitamins, particularly B1, B2, B6 and B12, that provide the body with energy, help to process fats and proteins, and which are vital for the normal functioning of the nervous system. -There is also vitamin C which is a potent detoxifier, immune booster and enhancer of vitality. Probiotic Organic Acids -There are two organic acids produced by Kombucha culture which encourage the activity of the resident bifidobacteria, thus restoring a healthy balance with the bacteroides: -Lactic acid which is essential for healthy digestive action (through its derivative lactobacilli) and for energy production by the liver, and is not found in the tissues of people with cancer. -Acetic acid which is an antiseptic and inhibitor of pathogenic bacteria. Kombucha’s Vital Organic Acids Other valuable organic acids produced by the Kombucha culture, some of which have a more direct effect on other organs include: -Glucuronic acid, normally produced by a healthy liver, is a powerful detoxifier and can readily be converted into glucosamines, the foundations of our skeletal system. -Usnic acid has selective antibiotic qualities which can partly deactivate viruses. -Citric acid is an antiascorbic. -Oxalic acid encourages the intercellular production of energy, and is a preservative. -Malic acid also helps the liver to detoxify. -Gluconic acid is a sugar product which can break down to caprylic acid to work symbiotically with — -Butyric acid (produced by the yeast) protects human cellular membranes, and combined with Gluconic acid which is produced by the bacteria,strengthens the walls of the gut in order to combat yeast infections such as Candida. -Nucleic acids, like RNA and DNA, transmit information to the cells on how to perform correctly and regenerate.
