Fire Cider: Immune Boosting Tonic.


Fire cider is an easy to make tonic with all natural immune boosting ingredients that you can easily find at your local grocery store. All of these ingredients have natural qualities to boost your immunity and help you to stay healthy. This tonic can be taken daily year-round or just during the cold and flu season. A spoon full a day is a great way to stay healthy when everyone around you is sneezing and coughing. It’s a little spicy hence the word fire cider and in my personal experience is an excellent way to clear the sinuses! Overall, I recommend this easy natural way to boost your immune system.
