Cure colds, fight the flu, calm allergies, and boost immunity. Nope, it isn’t the newest vaccine your doctor is pushing, it is fire cider! Like you (probably), I had no idea what fire cider even was until I read about it on a blog.
Recently I came down with a wicked cold. Being 5 months pregnant and being completely infatuated with natural living, I started my search on Pinterest to find natural remedies to battle the bug. I even found immune system boosting gummy bears in my search!!
Fire cider has been around for hundreds of years. It isn’t a new Pinterest fad. In each fire cider batch is a plethora of natural immunity boosting, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory ingredients. A concoction of raw apple cider vinegar, onion, garlic, jalapeño, ginger, turmeric, citrus, and raw honey.
Here are some of those key ingredients and their natural super powers –
Pretty bold, right?! These are just some of the medicinal ingredients in this fire cider. Ginger is known to be an anti-inflammatory and raw apple cider vinegar creates an alkaline environment helps kill bacteria and viruses.
The best part, you don’t have to wait for your cold to surface before you start getting this goodness in to your body. You can use fire cider as a preventative and immune booster, especially this winter season.
However, your batch will take about 4-6 weeks to brew. So I suggest you start working on yours now!!
You can also purchase fire cider if you don’t have time to make your own. I have seen this brand, Fire Cider at my local health food store. There are also homemade brands you can find on Etsy. So there’s no excuse as to why you aren’t enjoying some now.
One last thought, you can take your fire cider like a shot each morning. About 1 ounce or so a day. More if you feel a sickness coming on. If that’s too powerful for you, add your cider to salad dressing mixing it with equal parts olive oil. You can also make a savory tea out of it or add it to a sweet glass of lemonade.
No matter how you enjoy it, I suggest giving it a go!
The recipe I used for our fire cider is below! Cheers!!
