What is there in KAKVI ?

The United States Department of Agriculture, in Handbook No 8. COMPOSITION OF FOODS, lists the following content of minerals and vitamins to be found in 100 grams of  KAKVI: 

Calcium 684 mg 

Phosphorus 84 mg 

Iron 16.1 mg 

Sodium 96 mg 

Potassium 2,927 mg 

Magnesium 258 mg 

Thiamine .11 mg

A more detailed analysis of KAKVI reveals trace amounts of copper and zinc; furthermore, it is a rich source of most of the vitamins of the B family with the exception of Vitamin B1. It is extremely high in Vitamin B6, in Pantothenic acid, and Inositol. A most important constituent of KAKVI is Phosphoric acid. A combined deficiency of Phosphoric acid and Potassium in the human body “causes a general breakdown of the cells, especially those of the brain and nerves”. 

Pantothenic acid is part of the Vitamin B2 complex. When absent from a chick’s diet, the bird developes dermatitis, and degeneration of nerve fibers in the spinal cord also occurs. When rats are fed on a diet lacking in Pantothenic acid, necrosis of the suprarenal glands become noticeable. 

Unsulphured KAKVI is a source of vital nutrients that are lacking in most of our diets. KAKVI is a star among the sweeteners as it doesn’t cause your blood sugar level to spike, as per the effect of refined white sugar. It is also full of minerals and has been used for yonks to remedy many health conditions.

KAKVI has a low glycemic index, which means the glucose and carbohydrates are metablolised slowly, demanding less insulin production and stabilising blood sugar. 

While regular ol’ white sugar actually depletes your body of nutrients, KAKVI will provide you with a whole host of important minerals. Being high in iron, folic acid and B vitamins means it is great for your blood. It is high in calcium and magnesium, which is important for bone production and energy. Because it contains potassium, magnesium and manganese it is also beneficial to the nervous system and heart health. On top of those it contains copper and zinc.

KAKVI has been touted for its wide spread healing ability with cases including growths, strokes, arthritis, ulcers, skin conditions, high blood pressure, constipation, varicose veins, anaemia, bladder issues, gall-stones, nerve cases and pregnancy. It is also among the list of alkaline foods, while white sugar is highly acidic.


What to do with it:

KAKVI can be used in place of your usual sweetener of choice. Just test it first to gauge how much you will need to use. It is much stronger than honey and maple syrup.

It is important to note that, for optimal health, you should look for organic, unsulphured KAKVI.

One or 2 tablespoons a day is the recommended dosage for those who wish to reap the nutritional advantages of this amazing syrup.

It can also be used as a tonic by mixing a tablespoon or two with a glass of warm water. Some have used this mix three times a day as a remedy for extreme conditions. It’s best taken before meals.
