Master Tonics are very popular, especially in the wintertime. They’re extremely potent drinks and are sometimes called Fire Cider. This is because they use raw apple cider vinegar infused with onions, ginger, garlic, hot peppers and other ingredients.
The drink packs a real punch and is usually taken in small portions at the first sign of colds or the flu. Other people routinely drink these tonics as wellness shots, to boost the immune system throughout the year.
Master Tonics have been used in folk medicine for ages. The ingredients have healthy properties: antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory.
