Fermentation not only adds beneficial bacteria and enzymes it also consumes all of the natural sugars while at the same time making the precious nutrients in our organic beets even more bio-available to your body - including the dietary nitrates. Numerous studies have found a link between consumption of beetroot juice and increased nitric oxide, which leads to more efficient energy production and utilization. Best of all, rather than drinking a glass of beetroot juice packed with sugar you can now take a small shot of our sugar free kvass for an excellent pre and post performance shot for athletes, students and anyone who would like to increase their endurance and stamina. In addition Bio-Beet Kvass will:
- Promote healthy blood flow throughout the body and brain making it an excellent support for high and low blood pressure.
- Support detoxification and methylation, liver and gall bladder health
- Is anti-inflammatory while promoting a normal inflammatory response
- Supports immune and cellular health
- Promotes brain neuroplasticity, or the ability to form new neural pathways, especially when consumed before exercise.
Bio-Beet Kvass has a deep complex flavour that hints at sweet, earthy, salty, sour (lemony) and bitter with each of our variations differing slightly as to which of the tastes are the most dominant. This is because taste stimulates function; for instance we know that bitter receptors are found throughout our body including our gut, liver and gall bladder. Foods that expand our palettes and/or contain all the tastes are especially beneficial to us.
If your already drinking our Kvass you will also notice that the taste varies slightly between batches this is due to our hand-made small batch process. It's also the most gorgeous deep magenta colour!!
