Discover the multiple beneficial effects of Chambord birch sap:
The draining is the primary function of birch sap, it goes like this participate in the elimination of toxins accumulated in our body. These toxins are residues of chemicals (such as pesticides, preservatives & #8230;) which are found in our food and which we absorb daily.
The elimination of these toxins is essential for the right balance of the body and it is already provided naturally by various organs which are the liver, the kidneys and the intestines. However, it often happens that these organs no longer succeed in fulfilling their role properly. Indeed, our lifestyles and rhythms contribute to the excessive accumulation of toxins (stress, industrial, fatty and excessive food, lack of hydration and sports activity ...) And when one of these organs no longer fully plays its role, then appear symptoms of cloudy complexion, slow digestion, fatigue ... the body is less resistant to common infections, viruses of all kinds.
Thus the draining function of birch sap will aim to stimulate the work of elimination of the liver and kidneys while cleaning the body from the inside.
Revitalization is the second benefit of birch sap. It is the sap that revives the birch each spring, this liquid is therefore a concentrate of life full of minerals, trace elements and vitamins (especially the B vitamins which participate in the production of energy). It is thus composed of a perfect dosage of multiple minerals: calcium and silicon to strengthen the bones, magnesium and lithium to boost morale, potassium to fight hypertension, iron to fight fatigue, antioxidant zinc to improve complexion…
The sap is an ideal combination which detoxifies the body but does not tire it, on the contrary it revitalizes it by its richness in minerals, vitamins and trace elements.
The body constantly produces uric acid, which is considered waste and must be eliminated by the human body (it dissolves in the blood and joins the kidneys to be eliminated in the urine). But in some cases, the body produces an excess of uric acid or fails to eliminate enough of it. The non-eliminated uric acid can then concentrate in the articular cartilage. It is thus responsible (in part) for joint pain of an inflammatory type. Birch sap will drain this uric acid and participate in its elimination.
A full course of sap (3 weeks) can reduce pain and allow flexibility to return for a few months.
A birch sap cure can serve as "Choke" on a diet by cleaning the liver of toxins. By draining the body, it also plays positively on water retention and cellulite. This action can only take place in addition to a balanced diet and suitable physical activity.

A Russian laboratory has developed a product made from birch sap: Biomos. This drug has a demonstrated ability to heal wounds and burns and acts as a substance Pain killer and antisclerosis.

Finally, the flavonoids contained in birch sap such as quercetin are of recognized efficiency today strengthen blood vessels, lower blood pressure and fight water retention.
