How can I use Fire Cider as a dietary supplement? The components of Fire Cider have been traditionally used in a wide range of healthful applications. Perhaps you can ask your Grandma, a friendly old farmer or your health care professional what they think about Fire Cider! Here are just a few ways to put Fire Cider to work for you:
Support your immune system: We all have a daily shot, and then have a few more throughout the day when we feel the need for more help staying healthy. Don't get too crazy though, take a breather and space out your Fire Cider shots with some thyme or holy basil tea!
Support your digestive system: A shot of Fire Cider after a big meal is a nice boost for your digestive system. It's like Fernet Branca, but without the booze, and with more vinegary spice. Ok, it's not much like Fernet.
Had too much to drink? The eye opening effect of a big slug of Fire Cider is a great way to shake off last night’s indulgence! Now go have a big greasy meal, followed by more Fire Cider and a much deserved nap.
Replace coffee: Doug L. in Connecticut says it best: "I tried this on a whim at the Big E because it sounded interesting. I had been trying to cut down on my caffeine intake for a while with little success, but once I started substituting my afternoon coffee with a shot of Fire Cider, I found the solution. Lots of energy with no caffeine!"
Does Fire Cider contain alcohol? No, it does not. It does however, mix well with alcohol if that's your style, so check out our Blog or our recipe book for our signature Fire Cider cocktails!
Does Fire Cider contain GMO ingredients? To quote a wise man, no way, Jose! Fire Cider is USDA-Certified Organic and made with only certified organic raw apple cider vinegar, honey, fruits, and vegetables. Seeing the Certified Organic label is your best guarantee that a food product is GMO free.
Is Fire Cider gluten free? Yes, all of the ingredients we use are whole, raw, gluten free foods that we process ourselves. However, if you are extremely sensitive, be aware that we make Fire Cider in a mixed use facility.
How much should I take? For a daily dose we recommend about ½ to 1 Tablespoon. We just take a small sip from the bottle. If you feel under the weather you can take that same dose every 3 hours. You can take Fire Cider any time of day; just keep in mind that it does perk you up!
What is the shelf life of Fire Cider? According to the FDA, the ‘best by date’ is 18 months from bottling. We put a batch code sticker on the bottom or side of every bottle to tell you when the bottle turns 18 months old.
Does Fire Cider contain sugar? While Fire Cider doesn’t contain any refined sugars, the citrus fruits and honey used in our recipe give it 3 grams of sugar per one-tablespoon serving. Unsweetened Fire Cider, which doesn’t contain honey, has 1 gram of sugar per serving.
How should I store Fire Cider? Fire Cider’s main ingredients are apple cider vinegar and honey, two of nature’s greatest preservatives. This means our tonics are shelf stable and don’t need to be refrigerated. We keep our bottle tightly capped in a cool, dry, easy-to-reach spot in the kitchen.
Determine if your kids are really sick, or just trying to stay home: As told by one of our customers: "If my son claims to be sick, I offer him Fire Cider. If he refuses, he’s not that sick; if he accepts, he’s really not feeling well and gets to stay home from school, sipping Fire Cider and orange juice. Works every time!" Repel Wolves: Real or metaphorical, I don't see any wolves around, do you? Didn't think so.
