Günther's book

Kombucha - Healthy Beverage and Natural Remedy from the Far East

By Günther W. Frank
ISBN 3-85068-337-0
Published by W. Ennsthaler, A-4402 Steyr,Austria 1995

Günther's book goes into considerable detail and includes many references. It is an excellent book that is the result of many years of studying Kombucha. I think this book is the original source of much of the current information on Kombucha. See also where to buy the book.



This is the index for the book, "Kombucha - Healthy Beverage and Natural Remedy from the Far East" by Günther Frank, 9th edition, 1995.

It is made available here so you can get an idea of the topics described in his book. This book is generally considered the most detailed of the Kombucha books currently available. This index is also useful for those who purchased earlier versions of Günther's book which did not include an index.
