Benefits of Fire Cider




Fire Cider is an old-fashion folk remedy used to prevent illness, especially during the Winter months, but can be used all year long. Because it is a tonic, meaning it is safe to take daily for long periods of time, Fire Cider can support you though times when you need an immune boost.


To make this tonic, I steep herbs and spices in organic apple cider vinegar for six weeks. The vinegar extracts the medicinal properties (volatile oils, vitamins, minerals and other compounds) out of the herbs and spices. Most of the components come from my own garden! I grow all my herbs, vegetables and fruits without chemicals, of course. What I cannot grow here I source from other local growers or companies whose ethical standards I endorse.


Fire Cider has many benefits which lend to keeping you healthy all year long. It is high in antioxidants which essentially 'clean out' your cells of the waste products than can build up which allows them to work more efficiently. Fire Cider is also high in antimicrobial compounds against bacterias, viruses, and fungal infections like candida. It is also high in essential vitamins and minerals. The apple cider vinegar will help with digestion, add good bacteria to your gut as well.


It is best to consume Fire Cider with a well-rounded, organic, wholefoods diet, as well as exposure to sunlight each day, preferably in the morning, drinking clean water, breathing fresh air and intentional movement each day.


Enjoy 1-2 tablespoons of Fire Cider in still, fizzy or kefir water with your first meal of the day.
