Who Should Aviod Drinking Kombucha Tea ?

As with any new substance introduced into the body,  one should start slow and increase the amount taken at a pace that is
agreeable with the body.  A single dose should be followed for the first three or four days, then the amount of tea may be
increased to 300ml (two wine glasses) per day.  
After the first week, then the full amount of tea may be taken per day, 450ml, 12 oz, or three wine glasses.  
This is only a recommendation for a person in good health!  

If you have preexisting medical conditions or are in poor health then your starting dosage should be much less. It may take you
up to a month to have your daily dose at 300ml and up to a year before your body is ready for the full amount, 450ml or 12 oz
per day.  You must listen to your body and knowing your health decide what and how much of a dose you should start with
and in what steps to increase your dosage.  Please consult with your health practitioner if you are uncertain as to the dosage
and amount of tea to take.  

It is recommended that you talk with your health care practitioner
before consuming or drinking kombucha tea.

We strongly suggest not to use kombucha under the following conditions:


Those with a badly functioning liver - Kombucha is said to be a very powerful detoxifier and will pull toxins from your body and
pass them through your liver on their way out. If your liver does not function correctly then it may be unwise to drink Kombucha.

Infants under 6 Years - Whilst a young body is growing it cannot withstand the same degree of supplements and foodstuffs as an adult.
Kombucha is very strong and should not be used on infants.  
Kombucha may also imped the development of the infants immune system in some ways.

Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers - The reason is the same as above.  Nutrient from the mother will pass into the unborn child and / or
breast fed baby.  Kombucha may imped the development of the infants immune system in some ways.

Children - You should consider diluting a child's Kombucha before giving it.  It can be diluted with water, iced tea or a suitable fruit juice.

Alcoholics in recovery - Many recovering alcoholics have found it helpful to drink Kombucha during their recovery period.  It is said to
remove the desire for alcohol.  But be warned though, Kombucha does contain a small quantity of alcohol,
normally less that 1% by volume.  
Any recovering alcoholic knows that even a small quantity of alcohol can have a negative effect on them, so be careful.

Diabetics - Many diabetic brew kombucha, just with lower sugar content. Though most of the sugar is converted into other components
during the fermentation process, some still remains as sugar in the finished tea. Keep this in mind when preparing your diet.

It is recommended that you talk with your health care practitioner before consuming or drinking kombucha tea.  We
strongly suggest not to use kombucha if you have any of the above conditions.
