“My own kitchen soon became my laboratory. And the path that I would eventually embark upon would lead me to rediscover ancient healing foods and ultimately discover the key to unlocking the body’s innate intelligence to heal.” – Donna Gates

In recent years, scientists have praised this ancient fermented drink for its beneficial probiotic properties and for its high content of functional organic substances.
