Naturopathic Doctor, Mason Bresett, runs through the ingredients in his fire cider recipe and their function and benefits for your body’s health.

Fire Cider Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup peeled and diced radish
  • 1/2 cup peeled and diced garlic
  • 1/2 cup peeled and diced onion
  • 1/4 cup peeled and diced ginger
  • 1/4 cup peeled and diced turmeric
  • 1 habanero chili, split in half
  • 1 orange, quartered and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 pomegranate cut into 2 cm squares
  • 1/2 lemon, quartered and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons chopped thyme
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 2 tbs 5 Defenders Mushroom Extract Powder
  • 2 to 3 cups raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar (at least 5% acidity)

Fire Cider Recipe Directions:

  1. Once all your ingredients are prepped, put them in the jar and completely cover with apple cider vinegar. A note on the apple cider vinegar: I like good quality, raw, organic product.
  2. Seal that jar up and store it at room temperature in a dark place.
  3. In 3-4 weeks, strain the vinegar and squeeze out any liquid that you can from the plant material. All those incredible constituents (healthful plant compounds) are going to seep out into the vinegar. Add honey to taste.

How to use this fire cider:

Store the liquid in the fridge and have a 1-ounce shot when you think of it — a dose of immune-supporting cleansing fire cider. Keep in mind this might be intense on an empty stomach.
