This is a VERY POTENT immune tonic traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to combat cold and flu. Our Kootenay-Style Fire Cider is fermented with the classic Fire Cider ingredients of raw apple cider vinegar, garlic, cayenne peppers, cinnamon and ginger which give Fire Cider cholesterol-lowering, blood pressure-lowering and blood sugar-lowering properties.
To boost the efficacy of this beautifully crafted tonic we've added a good dose of Chaga and Astragalus.
Chaga is a type of fungus that grows on birch bark. It is rich in antioxidants and many beneficial plant compounds including triterpenoids, melanins, polysaccharides, polyphenols and flavans. Like garlic, ginger and apple cider vinegar, Chaga reduces cholesterol but it also helps you adapt to stress and change making it the perfect medicine going into and moving through Fall and Winter.
Just like Chaga, Astragalus (root) is an adaptogenic herb. It protects and supports the immune system, prevents colds and upper respiratory infections while normalizing blood sugar levels. Astragalus lowers blood sugar, and not surprisingly so does Chaga, making this adaptogenic duo the superheroes of our Fire Cider!
Now, traditionally, Fire Cider is sweetened with honey. But being a Canadian vegan brand and also conscious of the effect sugar has on our health and well-being, we've sweetened our Fire Cider with Maple Syrup which las a lower glycemic index than honey.
Directions for use: Take 1/2 to 2 Tbsp daily.
Note: We use True (Ceylon) Cinnamon but occasionally will substitute Cassia cinnamon. Check the ingredient list on the label to be sure of what type of cinnamon was used. You can also message us to find out what type of cinnamon was used in the batch in stock.
