Kombucha: 2,000 Year Old 'Elixir Of Health'

Velvete Womack, our wellness commentator and proprietor of the Fire and Ice Spa in Commerce, says kombucha is a fermented tea that was first brewed by the Chinese more than 2,000 years ago.  It has a "rich anecdotal history of health benefits like preventing and fighting cancer, arthritis and other degenerative diseases."  Kombucha can be brewed at home, or purchased as a commercial product.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
