I'm always on the lookout for new functional beverages - I don't do the best at drinking regular water, so having tasty and healthy drinks to grab from the fridge helps me keep my hydration on point. Sooooo when I had the opportunity to try Sapp birch water, I jumped on it! Not only is it 100% organic, free of added sugar, and deeeeelicious, but it's full of naturally occurring nutrients and minerals (manganese is the standout) and infused with adaptogenic chaga mushrooms (see: rockstar of the medicinal mushroom world). This bev is definitely going in my regular rotation--read on to learn about how birch water's health benefits, and why chaga 'shrooms should be in YOUR regular rotation.
Birch water comes from birch trees (duh). Birch trees spend the entire year absorbing rich and diverse minerals from the soil and the sun. During just a few weeks in the springtime, they release sap (or birch water) infused with nutrients and ready to drink. Birch water is naturally low in sugars, containing only about 3 grams of sugar per 10 oz. The beauty of collecting this delicately sweet sap is that it leaves the birch trees unharmed, allowing them to continue growing through the rest of the year. Also a stellar benefit is the fact that it gives us a reason to cultivate birch forests instead of cutting them down for their wood. #winning
