Turmeric ... FIRE TONIC ® ingredient #3

Turmeric  ... FIRE TONIC ® ingredient #3
T U R M E R i C  ... FIRE TONIC ® ingredient #3
You may have noticed your Insta feed flooded with shots of golden everything … golden mylk lattes, golden beer, golden fudge (yup!). Everybody from doctors to athletes and celebrities are spruiking the benefits of this root herb and with good reason!
 
In traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine this warming herb has been used to treat digestive and liver issues, inflammation, menstrual irregularities and skin conditions like eczema.
Western research is slowly catching up to what traditional cultures have known for a long time and preliminary clinical trials suggest that the active compound in turmeric – called curcumin - is a potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticancer agent.
 
We use fresh QLD grown turmeric [which along with QLD ginger is widely regarded as the best in the world] ... orange fingers are a dead giveaway that I've just batched up some fire tonic.

RAW local honey ... FiRE TONiC ® ingredient #2

RAW local honey  ... FiRE TONiC ® ingredient #2

R A W ' L O C A L ' H O N E Y | FIRE TONIC ® key ingredient 2

Raw honey is, well, totally rawesome. The only food made by insects and consumed by humans and it can last for thousands of years without spoiling (cool, huh 🍯) !?! Unpasteurised honey has a host of health benefits. It is anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral & local honey has even been said to help with hay fever & sinus issues caused by the local flora. With a vitamin and mineral dense nutritional profile, raw honey is truly a superstar, no wonder the ancient Egyptians used to make honey offerings to their gods. 

We add our undiluted, natural, pure, raw, honey after our fire🔥tonic has been steeping for a minimum of 10 weeks, every batch is tasted & tweaked before bottling to ensure maximum flavour & minimise seasonal variation.

ACV ... FiRE TONiC ® ingredient #1

ACV  ... FiRE TONiC ® ingredient #1

Aged Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) ... FIRE TONIC ®  ingredient #1

Ok, let’s just shorten this to “the schizz” because this is the ingredient that makes that magic happen. ACV is the nutritional powerhouse at the core of Fire Tonic, and with good reason. The high acetic acid content in ACV helps the body absorb crucial minerals and scientific studies suggest it may help control blood glucose levels, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, aid digestion and decrease inflammation.

When it comes to ACV, the older and uglier the better and Fire Tonic is the ugliest around! See that stringy matrix like web floating in your bottle? Fear not, ‘cause that’s the “MOTHER” of the vinegar and it’s good for you- packed with cellulose, good bacteria, enzymes and trace minerals. The ACV we use is raw, untreated and unfiltered, meaning that more of the good stuff is in every shot.

The high prebiotic content of Fire Tonic feeds the good bacteria in your gut, helping your body restore the optimum balance for epic wellness. Our MOTHER is so strong & vital, that if you leave a bottle half full sitting around too long, it will regrow across the surface of your Fire Tonic.

Our ACV is grown & made in Harcourt [central] Victoria, has no residual pesticides and is aged (on average) for around five years so it’s free from nasties & full of awesome!
