The name of this drink is referred to as beet kvass, and it possesses similar health benefits to kombucha. It is easy to make, and takes very little time. The only thing that takes time is the waiting for fermentation to begin.

Drinking beet kvass will infuse your body with B-vitamins and potent antioxidants. It will boost anti-inflammatory markers in the body, and will readily help improve digestion. By fermenting the beets, you help enhance their nutrition by increasing the levels of food enzymes and B-vitamins. It will also aid your body in efficient absorption of nutrients from other foods you eat.
