The Jagged Path
Fire Cider Tonic
Fire Cider is a traditional immune system and digestive stimulant.
It’s sour, sweet and spicy with all the probiotic benefits of the vinegar, the prebiotic benefits of some of the inulin rich herbs, and anti microbial. T
his is a great way to fire up your metabolism, and to boost your immune system. It also serves as a wonderful digestive aid.
All of the ingredients were grown organically, by me. No pesticides were used, ever.
-Fresh horseradish is known to be effective against the flu and common cold, tonsillitis, respiratory disorders, urinary tract infections, and pathogenic fungus. Best herb for sinus congestion and headaches, EVER!
-Ginger is used to treat arthritis, muscle pain, upset stomach (motion and morning sickness and general nausea), gas, upper respiratory tract infections, and cough. A warming herb that is also good for digestion.
-Onions are used to boost cardiovascular health, bone and connective tissue benefits, and as an anti-inflammatory agent. Onions have similar properties to garlic and are also good for colds and flus.
-Rosemary is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which are thought to help boost the immune system and improve blood circulation. It is also considered a cognitive stimulant and can help improve memory performance and quality.
-Garlic is used to treat high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, heart attack, atherosclerosis, asthma, building the immune system, help level blood sugar, and is used topically to treat fungal infections. Known as the poor man's penicillin. It has broad-spectrum antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and is an excellent aid for fighting infection. It also produces a heat that helps lower cholesterol.
–Jalapeno peppers boost your metabolism, and offer headache, sinus, and arthritis relief as well as releasing endorphins.
–Lemons are known to aid in digestion, alleviate Meniere’s Disease, kidney stones, and ringing of the ears, cure scurvy (chronic lack of Vitamin C), treat colds and flu, improve the function of blood vessels, and reduce inflammation and retention of water.
–Turmeric is known to delay liver damage, reduce carcinogenic compounds in other foods, make cancer cells more vulnerable to chemo and radiation, inhibit the growth of malignant melanoma and breast cancer, alleviate arthritis symptoms and skin conditions.
–Raw apple cider vinegar (not plain old cider vinegar!) is known to be a good source of acetic and ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), mineral salts, amino acids, and other key components of good nutrition, but it is also a well-loved folk remedy thought to ease digestion, fight obesity and diabetes, wash toxins from the body, kill lice, and reverse aging.
–Raw honey is a fantastic, all-natural fighter of seasonal allergies. The sweet taste of the honey makes this tonic much more palatable!
My Fire Cider is also full of vitamins and minerals, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and makes a great, non-narcotic cough suppressant and throat soother.
Fire Cider can be taken daily as an immunity booster, and is fabulous as a dressing for cooked greens or in salad dressings.
A tablespoon is recommended as a daily boost. Try Fire Cider straight from the bottle; with juices‚ soda water‚ or tea, or in a fierce Hot Toddy.
Each batch of my fire cider "brews" for a minimum of 4 weeks, to ensure a full infusion of all herbs and plant material. I only make one batch each year, so once it's gone, it's gone.
You will receive a dark glass, 4oz bottle.
