Did you know that probiotics and probiotic rich food have a definite connection to your heart health? Specifically our Beet Kvass, which is known for its vascular health and lowering of blood pressure. The microbes from these foods not only provide signaling for healthy lining of your coronary arteries, but they also have a more direct effect of lowering your blood pressure by decreasing inflammatory processes in your gut and throughout your entire body. It is interesting to drink Beet Kvass and feel the energy of the microbes exploding inside your body. Peripheral edema or swelling of your ankles can most definitely be attributed to very poor interstitial tissue and vascular breakdown in your extremeties or your legs. Making a good habit of drinking Beet Kvass on a daily basis as your morning or evening cocktail can turn this ugly breakdown around.
What about the salt used to make Beet Kvass? Isn't this bad for my heart? The answer to this question is a simple "no!" The salt used in making the Beet Kvass is effective in breaking down the beet fibers to allow for microbial growth. The microbes overpower the salt content of your Beet Kvass to provide probiotic richness and microbial energy to work in your body. The healthy tissues of your body do need an appropriate amount of sodium in order to work properly and not shut down. When your cells shut down, the result is inflammation and cell wall breakdown which can present itself as edema or swelling of your legs,
