Fire tonics are a folk medicine that have been used for many a year to help build the immune system and improve circulation with antiviral and antibacterial spices and roots. Good as a tonic for general health and digestion, and excellent for preventing colds and the flu, this fire tonic is made with fresh ginger root; fresh horseradish; cloves of fresh garlic; fresh turmeric root; dried oregano; whole star anise; unfiltered Bragg’s apple cider vinegar; blackstrap molasses and maple syrup.
Ingredients are chopped and infused in the apple cider vinegar for a month, then the cider is strained and sweetened. As it doesn’t contain honey, this fire tonic is perfect for vegans. Molasses is a great sweetener as it contains vitamins and minerals like iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
This combination of spicy roots and herbs is a powerful way to ward off viruses during cold and flu season, and to warm up the body by promoting circulation. Ginger, horseradish, garlic, turmeric root, oregano and apple cider vinegar contain antiviral and antibacterial properties that break up congestion and relieve inflammation.
Take one tablespoonful a day as a tonic, and double or triple the dose once cold or flu symptoms are detected. Fire tonics can help get rid of a cold or flu more quickly, and will relieve symptoms of sinus and chest congestion. Great for warding against other sickies at offices, schools, festivals, and on airplanes. Comes in a 2 ounce amber glass bottle with a screw cap.
