Fire Tonic?

A Fire Tonic (also known as a tincture) is an ancient old folk health elixir, used to boost immunity and ward off sickness. It is filled with raw enzymes, prebiotics, beneficial bacteria, phytonutrients, potent anti-inflammatory, gut and immune support elements.

Each batch is macerated for 6-8 weeks using raw unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar, Organic vegetables like ginger, red and green chillies, garlic and traditional herbs like cooling mint and buch followed by raw untreated cape honey. Nowadays it is a widely used Master Tonic due to its natural anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitical properties.

Fire Tonics Ingredients List:

  • RAW Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar – with the mother Enzymes
  • Organic Medicinal root Vegetables
  • Organic Mint and Traditional herbs
  • Raw unheated honey*

Fire Tonics help to flush out toxins, mucus, and all types of harmful bacteria by lowering our bodies Ph level and boosting your own natural immune system.

To name just a few, it has been used to:

  • Aids and stimulate Digestion
  • Prebiotic – feeding good gut bacteria
  • Reduces Inflammation, helps with conditions like arthritis, IBS, Crohn’s disease and menstrual pain
  • Kills and prevents harmful bacteria growth (including those that cause Candida)
  • Boosts Immune system
  • Reduces/Eliminates Reflux and Indigestion
  • Regulates the body’s PH level – alkalising effect
  • Helps reduce DOMS and post work out recovery
  • Helps the Liver to detox due to its anti – microbial properties
  • Helps prevent cold and flu
Acid reflux, also called gastroesophageal reflux, develops when the stomach contents flow back into the oesophagus. Acid reflux often occurs when the lower oesophageal sphincter (LES), a ring of smooth muscle fibres that separates the oesophagus from the stomach, spontaneously opens or improperly closes, which allows food and stomach acid to escape into the oesophagus. A common cause is that the stomach may not have enough acid to break down and digest the food. This process irritates and inflames the oesophageal wall, which finally leads to heartburn & acid reflux. Aceso Fire Tonics are natural, homemade, and effective treatment that prevents heartburn and acid reflux.

Important info to remember when treating any Gut Dysbiosis: You may find in the beginning of healing and battling yeast overgrowth you might experience a detox reaction where you feel worse before you feel better, but after several days you’ll probably feel much better. You might also see some changes during digestion at this time, but keep in mind that your body is healing & getting rid of bad bacteria.

Chronic yeast overgrowth is something that’s often referred to as candida. If you’re not familiar with it, then basically, all you need to know is that we have all types of yeasts and bacteria in our bodies. Some are good and some are bad, and most live within our digestive tracts. The good “bugs” keep us healthy, energized, and protect us from the harmful toxins and everyday contaminants we encounter. They also help keep us regular and keep our skin, weight, and immune system in check. Bad yeasts and bacteria do the opposite, and sadly, things that we eat in our diets can often fuel these bad “bugs” to become predominant in our systems, outnumbering the good bacteria.

Aceso Fire Tonics contain protein enzymes and Prebiotics which give the tonic a cloudy appearance. These live cultures and fibres help alkalize the body and feed beneficial bacteria that crowd out yeast and “bad bacteria’s” inhibiting the overgrowth of candida.

Inflammatory diseases like Arthritis, IBS, Crohn’s, Asthma, Peptic ulcers, Periodontitis, Sinusitis and many other disorder can cause long term inflammation and pain. Aceso Fire Tonics can help to reduce inflammation and pain by virtue of its natural anti-inflammatory enzymes.

What is lacto fermentation?

Lacto refers to lactic acid. All fruits and vegetables have beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus on the surface. In an anaerobic (oxygen-free) environment, these bacteria convert sugars into lactic acid, which inhibits harmful bacteria and acts as a preservative, resulting in a “Tonic” with lots of live, beneficial probiotic bacteria.

How do I take Fire Tonic?

  • Therapeutic dosage (Ideal) – Immune Booster or flu preventer – would be 1 x 5-10ml straight up shots, followed by a chaser if needed. 1 – 3 times daily.
  • Reflux/Indigestion – 5-10ml before each meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
  • Candida/gut dysbiosis – 2 x 15ml shots for 7 days, then a therapeutic dose can be maintained
  • As a salad dressing – 10 – 15ml for the people not brave enough to sip on fire ☺
  • Sore throats and sinus, use as a tea – Breathe in the steam as you sip to relieve congestion
  • Children – it’s best to serve a small amount mixed in freshly-pressed orange juice or lemonade

Will each Fire Tonic taste the same?

No. Each batch is handmade and although similar they will vary. Made with only natural organic ingredients and a whole bunch of LOVE.

Why is there stuff floating around – or at the bottom of my Fire Tonic?

Whaaaaatttt??? Just joking! This is the important stuff people – the elixir if I may, the cloudy and somewhat cobweb-like structure that you may see in raw ACV is endearingly referred to as the mother, because of its life-giving properties.

How long is each Original Fire Tonic macerated for?

6 – 8 weeks. The gold edition: 10 weeks
