With COVID-19 spreading like wildfire, one of the best things you can do to protect yourself (aside from social distancing) is to boost your immune system. In a recent post, I discussed various ways in which you can proactively boost your immune system, one of which involved apple cider vinegar.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is an old-school home remedy that’s making a grand comeback. ACV is antiseptic, astringent, antibacterial and antifungal. We’re talking serious superfood here!

What Makes ACV Immune-Boosting?

Organic, cold-pressed apple cider vinegar contains a substance called “must.” Must is the bits and pieces of the fermented apple. The must is what holds the “mother.” And the mother is a colony of probiotic bacteria. Studies suggest that probiotics have an immune-boosting effect which is helpful in preventing and combating illness. What’s more, ACV comes with a slew of additional health benefits.

6 Amazing Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

1. Aids Digestion

Acid is one of the activators for the enzymes in the stomach to help break down protein. Apple cider vinegar speeds up digestion by activating gastrointestinal enzymes.

2. Controls Pathogens

Consuming apple cider vinegar helps prevent the overgrowth of microbes. Thus, protecting the body from conditions such as small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).

3. Decreases Acid Reflux

We’ve all experienced that feeling of stomach acid making it’s way up the esophagus. The general go-to is to chow down on some Tums and wait for the magic to happen. What’s interesting about acid reflux is that it’s actually caused by low stomach acid. Meaning, your stomach is actually crying out for more acid. ACV pH levels are between 3.3 and 3.5, making it acidic enough to calm the stomach and prevent acid reflux.

4. Improves Blood Sugar Levels

Apple cider vinegar helps improve the body’s sensitivity to glucose. Once the body is more receptive to glucose, insulin will be less resistant.

5. Enhances Immune System

ACV stimulates white blood cells to speed up function and fight off infection.

6. Aids Metabolism

When metabolized, protein breaks down into amino acids. In order to activate this process, your body needs additional acids, such as apple cider vinegar. Therefore, ACV speeds up the breakdown of food, promoting complete protein digestion.

How to Make Homemade Fire Cider

First things first, you’ll need to get your hands on some high-quality apple cider vinegar. We’re talking raw, organic and unpasteurized. This kind of ACT still has the residue of some fiber pectin, bacteria, and yeast. Raw means it’s rich in digestion-aiding enzymes, and organic means your product is free from pesticides or chemicals. I’d recommend using Bragg’s, but as long as your reaching for a product that’s raw, organic, and unpasteurized⁠— you’re good to go.

Next up, the juicer. There’s no way around this one. Fire cider requires a juicer (preferably a cold-press) but a conventional will work as well.

Once you have your supplies, homemade fire cider is as easy as juicing the produce and stirring in the apple cider vinegar.

How to Drink Fire Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar will yield the most health benefits when taken on an empty stomach. I’d recommend taking it down first thing in the morning, before eating breakfast.

Also, it’s important to know that acid can weaken tooth enamel. In order to prevent damage, you’d be wise to use a straw when consuming apple cider vinegar.

Finally, there’s flavor to consider. I like the flavor, so I prefer to shoot it⁠— 2 Tbsp in a mini shot glass (with a straw)⁠— down the hatch. However, if you’re not a fan of the flavor (or if you’re a rookie*), you might be better off diluting it. Try adding 8-16oz of water to your fire cider, pair it with a squeeze of lemon and enjoy.

*If you’re brand new to ACV, there’s a good chance your stomach will reject the first go of it. Think of it like a shot of tequila. Your body didn’t appreciate that initial rip of alcohol⁠— you may have even felt sick to your stomach. However, over time, you adapted. Once your body adapts, you’ll have no issue ripping shots of health. Print

Description

Give your immune system a serious boost with homemade fire cider!

Scale 1x2x3x

Ingredients

  1. 1 (32oz) bottle of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar*

  2. 2 oranges, peeled and quartered

  3. 2 lemons, peeled and quartered

  4. 1/4 white onion, peeled

  5. 1 inch chunk of ginger, peeled

  6. 1 inch chunk of fresh horseradish, peeled*

  7. 1/2 inch chunk of fresh turmeric, peeled

  8. 1 habanero pepper (with seeds)

  9. 1 garlic clove, peeled

  10. 1 Tbsp fresh cracked pepper

Instructions

  1. Prep the produce by peeling the skin and cutting it appropriately (to fit in your juicer). 

  2. Juice the produce.*

  3. Shake bottle of apple cider vinegar.*

  4. Stir entire 32oz bottle into juice mix. 

  5. Add fresh cracked pepper.

  6. Refrigerate and enjoy!*

Notes

I’d recommend using Bragg’s, but as long as your reaching for a product that’s raw, organic, and unpasteurized⁠— you’re good to go.

Prepped horseradish (in a jar) will alter the flavor and consistency of your product. 

I’d recommend inititially juicing the ginger, horseradish, turmeric and garlic. After running your roots through the juicer, add the onion, oranges, and lemon. This will ensure all of the products are properly broken down.

Shaking the bottle first ensures all of the “must” makes it’s way into your fire cider. 

This recipe makes a shit ton of fire cider. But don’t worry, this stuff stays fresh for months (maybe even years).

Shake product before consuming.
