There's this tea made from a an organism called a Kombucha mushroom (though it's actually a yeast/bacteria symbiotic colony and not a fungus) which is supposed to be very good for many different ailments. It's been reported to clear up acne and other skin problems completely. Anyone tried this?

Yes I've been drinking it for about 2 months. I'm clear now but it wasn't because of the tea. There were other effects that were good though like an increase in concentration, a lot of energy(constant energy, there is no point where I come down like with sugar and caffiene), and it has certain acids in large concentrations that the liver uses to repair and detoxify itself.

I have never tried it but I know a few people that have and they've all had positive results with it.

You can get info here http://w3.trib.com/~kombu/
Also if you just google "kombucha" you get about a hundred sites advertising them, plus lots of useful info. I had heard they were good, but I drank the tea and found it had no effect on my skin. I did feel much better overall though, and I haven't been ill in almost a year (even though I've stopped drinking it now). Some people say it is great for acne. Not for everyone though sad.gif

I drink kombucha from time to time. I do not like the pungent vinegar taste at all, and don't think I could get into drinking it regularly. And without drinking it regularly, I doubt it will show effects in the skin.
