Apple Cider + Ginger + Beet Shrub
About the Beet Shrub Recipe
Have you tried shrubs before? We're not talking about the bush in your garden, we're talking about drinking vinegar, or shrubs as they're sometimes called. Shrubs are a healthy and delicious way to incorporate more beneficial bacteria into your digestive system, and a great alternative to alcoholic cocktails. Tonight we're kicking back with a CBD-infused Beet Shrub.
Shrubs, or drinking vinegars date back as far as the 1500’s. Sekanjabin (sey-can-ja-bean) as it is known in Iran is perhaps the oldest known form of this type of drink, made from vinegar and honey.
This modern version combines three powerful anti-inflammatory digestion aids that also help to bring down blood sugar levels after a carb or sugar-loaded meal.
When it comes to health, ginger is a great for:
Anti-inflammatory effects thanks to gingerol, the main active ingredient in ginger root.
Apple cider vinegar:
Can lower blood sugar (especially after a carb or sugar-loaded meal)
Contain betacyanin (the compound that give beets their red hue) which has anti-inflammatory properties
