Thousands of kilometers of white birch tree forests provide an incredible scenery filled with this unique living drink.

Birch sap is the sap directly tapped from white birch tree. Traditionally it has been viewed as a part of nature’s renewable energy cycle, harvested once a year at the break of spring when birch trees awaken after winter dormancy and their sap begins to flow from tree root to tree tip budding leaves. The birch sap is a slightly sweet, thin syrupy-watery liquid. This sap is one of the best living energy source you can drink.

But what, exactly, is in this unique living drink and why does it have such an impressive reputation?
According to the website of Byarozavik, one of the biggest American birch water brands, the basic nutritional profile of birch sap is very similar to its coconut cousin — but with a couple of impressive nutritional extras.
The other super-ingredient that birch water boasts and coconut water does not is xylitol — a sweetener with 40 per cent fewer calories than sugar.
Xylitol is a healthy sugar alternative and perfect for diabetics. Benefits include dramatic tooth decay reduction if used with our gum, mints, or candy.

Unlike coconut water, birch sap contains compounds called saponins, which research are said to have powerful cholesterol-reducing properties.
Clinical studies have suggested that these health-promoting components, saponins, affect the immune system in ways that help to protect the human body against cancers, and also lower cholesterol levels.Saponins decrease blood lipids, lower cancer risks, and lower blood glucose response. A high saponins diet can be used in the inhibition of dental caries and platelet aggregation, in the treatment of hypercalciuria in humans, and as an antidote against acute lead poisoning.
Birch sap contains minerals that most important for human body such as 6 electrolytes: calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and sodium, vital vitamins, natural sugars, natural carbohydrates, iron, copper, sodium, amino acid, bioactive enzymes, very rich in vitamin C and B-vitamins like thiamine. It helps to relieve stiff muscles and joints, strengthening the bones and boosting overall immunity. (Electrolytes help to control fluid levels in the body, maintain normal pH levels, and ensure the correct electric potential between nerve cells that enables the transmission of nerve signals.)
Birch tree contains betulinic acid that gives it its anti-inflammatory properties, which are helpful in treating conditions like arthritis, high cholesterol, heart and kidney edema, and cystitis.
Also, birch tree contains strong astringent properties that make it an effective natural treatment for skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, furunculous and other skin irritations.
Birch bud and leaves are commonly juiced and this juice is used for treating inflammations and infections of the urinary tract, edema, and renal calculosis.
The buds of the birch tree are a rich source of vitamin C, tannin, and flavonoids.
We will tap the birch sap ourselves for daily use and drink 1.5 l per day and we will do half fasting. The standard food that will be offering is vegetarian food, but for those who would like to have gluten free or meat, we can arrange that.
