Birch takes water from the deepest layers of the earth, so it is clean. Then in its path through the tree, sap is enriched with minerals and carbohydrates. Fresh sap is different than water, therefore it does not stay in the body, it washes out the toxins, is urine impellent, facilitates recovery of the body, regulates weight, improves immunity, supplies body cells with organic acids, improves metabolism, cleans kidneys, rinses salt precipitation from the bone joints, cleanses the blood of excess substances and performes much more body-friendly and healing functions.
Sap contains protein, amino acids, a number of valuable minerals as well as electrolytes and enzymes necessary for the body. It also contains saponin that can effectively reduce elevated cholesterol levels and it has anti-inflammatory effect.
Birch sap can be used not only for drinking, but for skin care as well. It is healthy to wash face with fresh birch sap or use it instead of a face lotion. It improves skin color and elasticity. In addition, birch sap can protect and prepare skin for the active spring sun.>>
Birch sap for Labanovski family is a popular drink already for a long time. Sap is tasty when it’s fresh, but in order to maintain its refreshing and valuable qualities, during many years family has developed new recipes. Moving away from the traditional spices, drink was supplemented with mint, which made the sap more refreshing, fresh for a long time and with a pleasant flavor.
The whole process of making the sparkling sap starts early in spring as soon as the ground thaws and sap starts to circulate through birches. Sap collected within three weeks from ecologically certified birches is being bottled, natural additives added and as result of fermentation we get sparkling birch sap - BIRZI. It sparkles, additives do not dominante over sap’s natural flavor but gives it additional pleasant note.
BIRZI is an excellent thirst-killer, ideal for celebrations as non-alcoholic champagne, a pleasant ingredient in refreshing cocktails.
The title BIRZI was chosen because we associate it with Latvian tradition and with freshness and health which you will receive by drinking our sap.
