Kombucha or fermentation tea beverage produced from symbiosis of yeast species and acetic acid bacteria, is a popularly health tonic around the world today. D-saccharic acid-1,4-lactone (DSL), a component of kombucha, inhibits the activity of glucuronidase, known as an enzyme indirectly related with liver cancer. In this research, the tea fermentation was traditionally carried out by inoculating a previously grown culture into a freshly prepared tea decoction and incubated statically under…

The properties and composition of Kombucha beverage as well as its biological activity and potential favourable effect on the human body are presented.

Low-temperature extracts of Purple blossoms of basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) intervened mitochondrial translocation contributes prompted apoptosis in human breast cancer cells

This is the first study that shows the impact of the aqueous extract of basil ( Ocimum basilicum L. ), which underlined high amounts of flavonoids and phenolic compounds bearing more anticancer and antioxidant activities compared to another aQueous extract (using boiled water solvent) and alcoholic extracts.



Kombucha fermentation and its antimicrobial activity.

Kombucha proved to exert antimicrobial activities against E. coli, Sh.

The isolation and identification of microbes from a fermented tea beverage, Haipao, and their interactions during Haipao fermentation

It was found that the autoclaved yeast cells and ethanol produced by yeasts were helpful forAcetobacterto grow or produce acetic acid and the symbiosis phenomenon between the yeast and Acetobacter was studied.

Optimization of Liquid Fermentation Process for Improved Exo-Polysaccharides Production by Kombucha ZJU1

In order to improve exo-polysaccharides production by Kombucha ZJU1, the optimization of liquid fermentation process for cell growth and Exo-Polysaccharide (EPS) production by Kombucha ZJU1 was

Effect of pH on the stability of plant phenolic compounds.

It is demonstrated that caffeic, chlorogenic, and gallic acids are not stable to high pH and that the pH- and time-dependent spectral transformations are not reversible, while chlorogenic acid is stable to acid pH, to heat, and to storage when added to apple juice.

Involvement of beta-glucuronidase in intestinal microflora in the intestinal toxicity of the antitumor camptothecin derivative irinotecan hydrochloride (CPT-11) in rats.

It is suggested that CPT-11-induced diarrhea would be attributable to the damage to the cecum, and that the inhibition of the beta-glucuronidase activity in the intestinal microflora is a major protective effect of antibiotics.

Mineral and water soluble vitamin content in the Kombucha drink

Biologically active substances (water soluble vitamins and minerals) were analyzed in 'Kombucha' a curative liquor, produced by the so-called 'Kombucha cultivation' (Macedonian collection of

Fast determination of catechins and xanthines in tea beverages by micellar electrokinetic chromatography.

By a MEKC method, eight cathechins and three xanthines were quantified in some tea-based beverages and showed a very good sensitivity and was applied to real tea samples to characterize their antioxidant content.
