WHAT IS BEET KVASS?
The word Kvass in Russian means "sour beverage" and is still the drink of choice on the street corners of the Ukraine, Poland & Russia. Kvass made from beets has been used as a part of cancer protocols in Europe for some time now, and the benefits of this healing drink are starting to catch on in the United States as well.
When Beets are converted into Kvass through fermentation, the process heightens their nutritional quotient along with providing gut support with the addition of beneficial bacteria as well as greater absorption of nutrients from your food.
Beets contain natural occurring nitrates which helps dilate blood vessels, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure overall.
Dementia: Researchers at Wake Forest University have found that drinking beet root juice can improve oxygenation to the brain, slowing the progression of dementia in older adults.
Diabetes: Beets contain an antioxidant known as alpha-lipoic acid, which has been shown to lower glucose levels, increase insulin sensitivity and prevent oxidative stress-induced changes in patients with diabetes.
Digestion and Regularity: Because of its high fiber content, beetroot helps to prevent constipation and promote regularity for healthy digestive tract.
Inflammation: Choline is a very important and versatile nutrient in beetroot that helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning and memory. Choline also helps to maintain the structure of cellular membranes, aids in the transmission of nerve impulses, assists in the absorption of fat and reduces chronic inflammation.
Exercise and Athletic Performance: Beetroot juice supplementation has been shown to improve muscle oxygenation during exercise, suggesting that increased dietary nitrate intake has the potential to enhance exercise tolerance during long-term endurance exercise.
Adding Kvass or another form of raw, organic, fermented food to your daily routine is simply a must-do for gut health, clean blood, detoxification, cancer prevention, and overall vibrant health.
