Nabeez‘ [Nabidh] was one of the drinks consumed by the Holy Prophet (Sall Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam). In his time, it was typically made with dates or raisins and water.

It is an alkalizing tonic, having the tendency to remove acidity from the stomach and digestive system and it also helps to remove other metabolic wastes from the body.
