Kombucha Science

Debey sincerely believes that if you give the body the right tools, it can heal itself naturally. Kombucha is one of those tools. It is a flavorsome, life-changing fermented healthy tea that proudly touts the name the “elixir of immortality”. Sugar and caffeine from black tea and fruit are fed to a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) through a fermentation process that in the end, produce beneficial bacteria our bodies need to thrive. Every batch of this elixir contains beneficial probiotics, gluconic acid (a pH regulator), glucuronic acid (an acid made naturally by the liver that can bind to a toxic molecule and safely remove it from the body), acetic acid (an antimicrobial acid which stabilizes blood sugar), anti-inflammatory agents (to relieve pain and arthritis) and the building blocks of hyaluronic acid and glucosamine (lubricates the tissues and joints). Additionally, kombucha is an excellent provider of building blocks that can help our body make organic acids needed to yield its positive health effects.

Each batch of this elixir of kombucha is unique; therefore its beneficial results vary from person to person. However, one benefit everyone agrees upon is that it helps to bring the body back into balance and stimulates the body to heal itself naturally. To date, there have been many claims that it yields these other benefits:

Debey’s kombucha is special because it was inspired by her daughter, Jessica who was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer at the young age of 19. Jessica spent 4 ½ months in the hospital’s ICU, where she experienced sepsis shock twice and was sent home after 6 months of chemo and radiation which only caused the cancer to spread like a wildfire ravaging her body. After being told by the hospital that Jessica only had 3 months to live, it was up to Debey alone to elongate her precious daughter’s life by putting into practice the “good news” that she had learned that the body can indeed heal itself if it is given the right tools. It was at that time that Debey began making Kombucha and Lil Duck was born, their affectionate name for Jessica.

There are many makers of Kombucha, but very few like Lil Duck that offers 11 flavors and 3 additional seasonal flavors and Debey uses a precise blend of healing herbs and spices that give the body what it needs to begin healing itself. She makes her kombucha in oak barrels which allows for a longer fermentation process, more immune helpers for the gut, and the reduction of the vinegar taste. Currently, Debey’s kombucha business is booming as she sells it at many local events like Soda City and local farmer markets and her buyers keep coming back for more. But, don’t take our word for it; try it for yourself and see what it can do for you.

For those who want to know more about Kombucha: For thousands of years, people have been drinking a healthy cocktail of live organisms called Kombucha, a fermented tea that touts many health benefits, so much that some call it the “elixir of immortality” Don’t believe this is possible? Well, read on to see how…

Kombucha is all about the circle of life whereby aerobic and anaerobic organisms learn to work together symbiotically to give each other continuous life through death and then the cycle starts over again. This healing tonic, through its fermentation process, makes iron which boosts hemoglobin and improves the oxygen supply throughout the body; and this, in turn, creates more energy on a cellular level. After all, when your body’s eukaryotic aerobic system can harness your prokaryote’s adaptive immune system through your anaerobic system to provide antiviral defense and develop your own vitamins, minerals, and antibodies to fight off invaders, then there is very little that can take away your health!
