View Full Version : Fasting on Rejuvelac? Kombucha? Emer'gen-C?
Would you do this? Could you? Would it be beneficial? Harmful?

I would fast on Kombucha. That is a great idea! Kombucha is so beneficial for you PLUS it curbs your appetite (helpful with fasting :))
I would NOT fast on Emergen-C nor even drink Emergen-C because it contains carbonates, especially calcium carbonate.
Calcium carbonate is a insoluble solid occurring naturally as chalk, limestone, marble, and calcite. Calcium carbonate is also a component of mollusk shells and stony corals.
Calcium carbonate builds up in the body, causing kidney stones. Calcium carbonate can also cause gastritis.
I used to drink Emergen-C too.. it gives you a bit of energy and is nice while traveling. Once I found out about calcium carbonate, I stopped drinking it. Have you ever seen limestone? That is what is building up in your body... thick white chalky substance.

I use Synergy to aid in my flora but I personally would not fast with Kombucha as being a major source of fluid and nutrients. It does contain trivial amounts of alcohol depending on fermentation and naturally occuring caffeine.
I don't even care for MC myself but adore fruit/veggie fasting as it contains all the nutrients for rebuilding while you are cleansing, dotoxifying and rebuilidng/rejuvenating.
So no, I would not use Kombucha --only as aid in flora.
I would view Rejuvelac same as Kombucha sinc ethey are both feremented drinks
Emergen-c is a powder? for colds?
