BYAROZAVIK is incredible for hydration, rejuvenation, and vitality. Made with pure sap harvested from birch trees during springtime, birch tree water is a traditional beverage enjoyed for thousands of years in Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Russia, and other northern countries. It is high in antioxidants and minerals good for your health - with a light, crisp, delicious taste. We are natural, non-GMO, and USDA Organic certified. Byarozavik fuels your on-the-go, active lifestyle with the natural 'living water' of spring, straight from the source. Birch trees we harvest from grow primarily in Belarus, Central European Russia and Ukraine - in ecologically pure areas. The large number of forests and lakes in these geographies has made them some of the world's leading birch-juice producers. The harvesting and consumption of birch tree products is a well-established tradition. Byarozavik combines traditional harvesting with innovative bottling technologies, ensuring safety and health - while preserving natural nutrients at their peak levels.
Byarozavik uses large masses of forests located in Eastern and Central Europe, particularly in Belarus – our current source.
Micronutrients and trace amounts of minerals are more easily absorbed by our bodies. We are, in some way, similar to trees: This is the water that makes us come alive!
Because this is a natural product, the specific amount and type of nutrients found in any particular bottle depend on environmental factors such as weather and precipitation. Actual nutrient values will vary slightly, depending on the harvest.
‘Bya-roza-vik’…kind of like “b-yeah,” then “rose," then "a," then “Vic”. The accent goes on the middle syllable ("roza"). It`s a mouthful, we know – but wait until you taste it! In Slavic languages, "Byarozavik" means "birch tree water" – exactly what`s in the bottle!
We enjoy drinking Byarozavik birch tree water regularly, as much as we can - but of course advise moderation. Typically, we recommend no more than two to three half-liter bottles per day.
Yes! All of its nutrition and low sugar content are better, in our opinion, than the colored sugar waters most kids find in their lunch boxes. Help put your kids on the path to a lifetime of good health by providing them with products like Byrozavik birch tree water - low sugar content and lots of nutritional value!
A bottle of the 2013 Harvest has a shelf life of 12 months, thanks to our immaculate harvesting methods and bottling technology!
We suggest refrigerating opened bottles ... though our experience also suggests that once you open a bottle and taste it, you'll want to drink all of it!
Our birch tree water doesn’t contain fat or cholesterol. In fact, a key micronutrient contained in this water – saponin - allegedly works to fight cholesterol absorption in our bodies! It's of the reasons Northern cultures have been drinking this for thousands of years – and thriving!
Anytime! Hydrate before, during or after exercise! Cleanse your body in the mornings! The light, crisp flavor is a compliment to virtually any meal or snack. We've also noticed Byarozavik birch tree water used in smoothies or as a mixer for cocktails, chilled or straight off the shelf... and it also has a reputation for a 'after-party' hydration.
The Birch Tree has been revered by Northern cultures of the world for many thousands of years – it’s bark was used as the first paper of Slavic people, for example – much like papyrus was used in Egypt. “Birch bark” manuscripts are still found in archeological sites today. Birch wood is a light, strong and beautiful building material … canoes, houses, spoons, everything needed for living have traditionally been built using this wood. Chances are that you have furniture in your house right now built from this material. But we prefer birch trees in their living form! Their leaves, buds, blossoms, and especially sap have been long revered for their curative powers. Just walking through the beauty of a birch forest has inspired numerous poets, composers, artists and everyday people... and certainly us! Birch forests cover large portions of the landmass in many Northern countries, and are considered national treasures.
Yes. We don’t even add any flavors – it’s delicious in its natural state! And to top it off, we received USDA Certification in our very first year of production!
Byarozavik birch tree water is harvested from actual birch trees. The process is much like maple syrup harvesting – except ours isn’t boiled down to a syrup! Our birch tree water goes from the trees into containers without being reformulated or fortified in any way.
The harvest season is typically short, and occurs only once a year in the spring as sap begins to move from the tree roots to the budding leaves. We follow traditional harvesting methods, selecting ecologically pure forests and tapping trees by hand to collect their sap. No trees are harmed during the harvesting process – rather, they are preserved, so they can continue producing for their natural lifespan. Birch water harvesting saves trees and their natural environment - which is more economically profitable than cutting the trees down for lumber.
Drink Birch Tree Water and save a forest ... literally.
There are lots of similarities – both come from trees (Coconut water from a nut, birch tree water from the tree itself), both are super healthy, and both are delicious – and both are very traditional ‘beverages of choice’ in their respective geographies. Birch tree water has certain healthy, naturally-occurring micronutrients and minerals – such as saponin and xylitol - that coconut water does not contain. Many claim that Birch Tree Water has a lighter, crisper, more refreshing taste!
