Beet kvass is a fermented, Ukranian drink that gives us not only probiotics and digestive enzymes, but is a key aid in detoxifying the body.

Fermenting anything heightens its nutritional value and adds beneficial microorganisms that are loved by our gut biome. And beets, as it turns out, are powerhouses of nutrition.

Beets have been known to fight inflammation, boost stamina, prevent cataracts, help indigestion, improve blood circulation, aid gall bladder complaints and help to prevent macular degeneration. They also defend against free radicals, help to prevent blood clots, minimize arthritis, bronchitis, diabetes and chronic pain as well as increase the body's oxygen uptake. It has even been suggested that beets are anti-cancer. They are particularly useful in the excretion of toxins

Beets contain substances that aid in the body's Phase 2 detoxification process. This is the step that our bodies use to bind unwanted toxic substances with particular nutrient groups. This process takes the toxins and makes them water-soluable which allows them to be excreted in the urine.

Beets are also high in vitamin C, iron, manganese, copper, magnesium, potassium, flavonoids and phosphorus. Some say that their phytonutrients have the particular job of destroying disease processes.

I got the impression that the beets are not used after the liquid is removed. I would have thought that they would be still consumable and tasty.
