This beverage really lives up to its name! So many powerhouse ingredients in one recipe and so many benefits.
Why It's Good For You:
The beauty of fermenting nourishing foods such as carrots, apples, and beets is that it maintains their nutrient-dense profiles while removing the natural sugars that can perpetuate unpleasant digestive symptoms; bloating, gas, fatigue – often signs of a candida overgrowth and/or a leaky gut.
