Around the year 1800, Dr. PERCY wrote: "In all Northern Europe … birch water is the hope, happiness and panacea of the inhabitants, rich and poor, big and small, … Skin diseases, buttons, blotches…rarely resist to it. It is a valuable remedy in rheumatic diseases, in the remainders of gout, in a crowd of chronic evils against which medical science is so exposed to fail ".
The sap, also known as "birch water " is exclusively collected in spring, just when the body, coming out of the winter, needs cleansing itself of all the then accumulated wastes. It is spring which will make inflate the birch buds which contain many active ingredients (essential oils, tannins, flavonic derivatives , sesquiterpenes and vitamin C).
The buds and the sap activate the diuresis and the elimination of organic wastes such as uric acid and cholesterol.
