Move Over Coconut Water, Here Comes Birch Water, A New Miracle Elixir

December 29, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The newest fad in health drinks -- replacing ubiquitous coconut water -- is birch water, made from the thin, watery sap of birch trees. The drink has only 18 calories per 100 ml (3.4 ounces), and is rich in vitamin C, potassium, zinc, and copper, as well as other anti-aging nutrients. Harvested in the northern regions of Europe and China, birch water purportedly treats a range of maladies, from high cholesterol to flu, kidney stones, headaches, eczema, cellulite and dandruff. Already sold in health food stores, cafes and gyms in the U.S., the beverage should be more widely available in the U.K. this year.
