The aim of this study was to investigate the potential radioprotective effect of kombucha musroom tea (KM - tea) on gamma radiation ( γ) - induced chromosomal aberrations (CAs) in human peripheral blood lymphocytes in vitro. For this purpose, we used in vitro dose-effect relationship, and correlated these data with statistical parameters. CAs were classified into six major types as break, dicentric, acentric, fragment, gap and ring. Mitotic index (MI) and the numbers of aberrant metaphases (AMN…

A Review on Kombucha Tea-Microbiology, Composition, Fermentation, Beneficial Effects, Toxicity, and Tea Fungus.
Existing reports have suggested that the protective effects of kombucha tea are as good as those of black tea, however, more studies on kombuch tea and its composition are needed before final conclusions can be made.
Kombucha (Bio-Tea): An Elixir for Life?
The results of epidemiological research suggest that Kombucha consumption may help prevent several chronic diseases, including type II diabetes mellitus, nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, and myocardial infarction.
Technological aspects of kombucha, its applications and the symbiotic culture (SCOBY), and extraction of compounds of interest: A literature review
Abstract Kombucha is a functional tea brewed through a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). It is applicable to various industrial sectors due to its several noteworthy features.
Health effects and probiotic and prebiotic potential of Kombucha: A bibliometric and systematic review
There is a lack of scientific evidence about the content of probiotics in this drink and its possible role in the intestinal microbiota, highlighting the opportunities in researching and modifying the microbiome composition of kombucha, possibly improving the general qualities of this so-called functional drink.

Abstract The coconut waste water contain some nutrients, micronutriens, and minerals such as vitamin C, biotin, riboflavin, folic acid, amino acid, carbohydrate, calcium, phosphorous and iron. The


Radioprotective effect of lycopene on chromosomal aberrations (CAs) induced by gamma radiation in human lymphocytes.
In vitro results showed that the lycopene supplementation decreases frequency of CAs and its protective role against chromosome damages induced by radiation is dose-dependent until a certain stage.
The frequency of sister chromatid exchange and micronuclei in evaluation of cytogenetic activity of Kombucha on human peripheral blood lymphocytes
It is shown for the first time that Kombucha from different substrates induced different effects on mitomycin C-treated and -untreated peripheral blood lymphocytes, as well as effects of substrates alone.
Antigenotoxic effects of cimetidine against benzene induced micronuclei in mouse bone marrow erythrocytes.
Results indicate that CM could reduce clastogenic effects of BZN, and this mechanism might be associated with amplification of glutathione system and cytochrome P-450 inhibition.
Beta-pseudouridine, a beer component, reduces radiation-induced chromosome aberrations in human lymphocytes.
It is concluded that beta-pseudouridine, a nucleoside present in tRNA, is a potent protector against damage caused by radiation with direct and indirect actions.
Anticlastogenic effects of black tea polyphenols theaflavins and thearubigins in human lymphocytes in vitro.
It is indicated that both TF and TR have significant anticlastogenic effects in vitro in human lymphocytes, and TF shows more protective effects than TR in this in vitro system.
Chromosomal aberrations induced by radiotherapy in lymphocytes from patients with lung cancer.
The present study showed that RT possess a significant effect in increasing of CAs and chromosome break, dicentric, ring and chromosome gap are very sensitive and useful biomarkers in the study of this effect.
Anticlastogenic action of vitamin C against genotoxicity of estrogenic drug diethylstilbestrol (DES) in the human lymphocyte chromosomes.
The results support the possibility of practical application of natural protectors against the mutagenic/oenotoxic action of chemical mutagens and interesting ameliorating effects were observed in the presence of vitamin C which is a well-known antioxidant.
Subacute (90 days) oral toxicity studies of Kombucha tea.
The study indicates that rats fed KT for 90 days showed no toxic effects and the haematological and biochemical variables were within the clinical limits.
Effect of Kombucha tea on chromate(VI)-induced oxidative stress in albino rats.
Results show that Kombucha tea has potent anti-oxidant and immunopotentiating activities and completely reversed the chromate-induced changes.
Radiation-induced chromosomal aberrations in human lymphocytes after partial-body exposure to 60Co gamma-irradiation and in vitro exposure to 230 kV X-irradiation.
Small yields of chromosome aberrations were present in lymphocytes from 12 patients observed at first metaphase in culbure and on subdivision into two groups on the basis of whether the reticuloendothelial system was involved in the cancer, linear regression analysis could be fitted to the data for each group.
