Is store bought kombucha the same as if you make it yourself at home? Does it have the same/similar nutrients, detox abilities, etc?
I have access to the following brands- Synergy G.T.'s Kombucha, Herbucha, and Kombucha Wonder Drink. Do you know anything about these brands, or have one that you recommend?
I do know that making it myself would be cheaper, but other than that, are there benefits that are found in homemade that are not in store-bought? Is the store-bought even made the same way? I know that store-bought kefir is made with a powdered culture, no grains, but is it the same for kombucha?

Sorry, let me clarify...the kombucha I bought was from the refrigerated section. I poured it into a mason jar and covered the top with a coffee filter help in place by a rubber band. I fed it a bit of sugar every so often and soon had a nice big scoby. I used that scoby to ferment a fresh gallon of tea, and it doubled, so I kept it going. Had no problems, and it was cheaper and easier than ordering a scoby online.
