The culture fluid of the tea mushroom on honey solution. Numerous observations have shown that the infusion of the tea fungus is a cultural fluid that regulates the activity of the gastrointestinal tract (suppresses putrefactive pathogenic microflora), increases the protective properties
For the purpose of prevention, the culture fluid of the tea fungus can be consumed throughout life. A healthy person can drink 2-3 cups of culture fluid of a tea fungus a day, and the patient needs a doctor’s control.
People suffering from chronic diseases of the intestines, liver and bile ducts are advised to lie down on their right side after a reception of the culture liquid of the tea fungus and lie down for about 20 minutes so that the drink, without lingering in the stomach, quickly passes into the intestine. Take a healthy drink should be at least 2 months, being all the time under medical supervision.
In diseases of the stomach with high acidity, the culture liquid should be consumed with alkalis (soda, magnesia) or with alkaline mineral waters (Borjom, Slavic or Smirnovka). Shakaryan and Danieloz believe that the activity of the culture liquid is directly dependent on the sugar content in the nutrient medium: in the presence of 10% sugar, its activity is twice as high as at 5%.
The culture liquid is very useful for children, and it can be recommended instead of carbonated water, kvass, sietro, etc. Given that honey bees have good nutritional and therapeutic properties, it is recommended to add it to the culture fluid of the tea fungus.
Experiments showed that the most pleasant and useful drink was honey culture liquid, which contained 5% honey, 5% sugar and was enriched with vitamins C and B1.
