There’s no better cure than cold and flu than a nutritious health tonic overflowing with antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, cleansing, and immune-boosting properties. 

What’s really great about Super Tonic is that it’s quick and easy to make at home. It also doesn’t require professional skills. You can make a batch in the fall and keep it until spring. And if you need more, you can easily whip up a new batch or simply add a bit of each ingredient to the existing jar and top it with more organic apple cider vinegar.

You can use Super Tonic ina variety of ways. Some people take between a teaspoon and a tablespoon per day, while some use it only if they already have flu or cold. 

Those who like to battle a virus take one teaspoon every four hours or two tablespoons every couple of hours.

You can also use Super Tonic as spiced vinegar in salads, salad dressing, and more. Others use it to marinate meat. 

Clearly, there’s a lot of ways to enjoy Super Tonic. And what’s really great about Super Tonic is that the formula is usually very forgiving. You can use more or less of every ingredient and still achieve great results. The only requirement is that the organic apple cider vinegar completely covers all the veggies. 

Without further ado, here’s our Super Simple Tonic recipe. Please note that all ingredients listed are organic.
