Kombucha has an unusually high concentrate of beneficial microbes which are essential in assisting our bodies with healing, detoxing and functioning more efficiently, even optimally.

However, there are comprehensive scientific journals elaborating on the importance of probiotics, amino acids and polyphenols to justify consuming Kombucha regularly and safely to boost the natural immune system. These highly effective anti-pathogens are evident when consumed by candida sufferers. Having yeast infections and consuming Kombucha may cause a detox reaction when the candida is destroyed. This is evidence of the dramatic and severe “die-off” of yeast infections and not a side effect of Kombucha itself but proof that candida has been destroyed dramatically.

Kombucha may cause some other toxins to be eradicated in various forms, hence it is always advisable to introduce Kombucha to your diet in small amounts until you are accustomed to the high concentrate of cultures.

If you prefer, we also sell Kefir starters – make your own yoghurt with Octane!   We sell Kefir Starter Packs also.  Kefir is a dairy product, while kombucha is vegan, but both of them have dozens of strains of beneficial bacteria, including Saccharomyces Boulardii.

We are experimenting with our own in-house kombucha so we’ll hopefully soon have scobys to sell…  don’t have a clue what we’re talking about? SCOBY is an acronym for Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast. The term is often used to refer to cultures of bacteria and yeast present during production of the fermented beverage kombucha.

A SCOBY colony or culture may be referred to as a mushroom or a mother.  Making Kefir, kombucha or kimchi requires a starter for the fermentation process.  Kefir starters look a bit like cauliflower, but kombuchs scobys look like mad science experiments gone haywire.  Kefir and kombucha starters grow with every batch of product you make , until eventually you’ll have enough to share…
