ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR (CA)
Meet the grandmaster that delivers our potent living blend of food-medicine: Unfiltered, Raw, USDA-Certified Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Using raw ACV ensures that the Mother (naturally-occurring strands of connected protein molecules and enzymes) remains vital and alive. Apple Cider Vinegar was used by Hippocrates, the Hellenic grandfather of modern medicine, and used as far back as 400BC for its positive health benefits! ACV is rich in enzymes & potassium, helps maintain a healthy immune system, supports positive digestion & pH, helps soothe the throat, maintains healthy skin, supports muscle recovery from injuries, hard work and an active lifestyle and more!
HEIRLOOM GARLIC (CA)
We are proud to source an amazing Heirloom Garlic for Kung Fu Tonic. Garlic is plentiful here in California — home to the Garlic capital of the world! This wonder plant has its culinary (and medicinal) roots tracing back to antiquity. Garlic has been used historically to promote healthy heart functioning and an overall longer life among the elderly (and young too). It also helps promote circulation and is a great ‘maintenance’ food for the body’s blood-pumping system. It is considered to be an aphrodisiac and libido boost by many and Garlic is also a natural source of B-Vitamins, Vitamin C, Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc.
RED ONION (CA)
We use CCOF-Certified Organic Onions for each batch of Kung Fu Tonic. They come from both California and Idaho… Another classical culinary treat, the onion has been documented being used by humans around 5000 B.C.! The earliest known written codex on medicine shows the onion being used as for both food and medicine. Onions promote a healthy immune system, encourage positive circulation and a strong, healthy heart and may also promote the dissolving of tumors! Onions contain high levels of quercetin (as does Garlic).
Grandmaster Ginger has been used for thousands of years for promoting good digestion. Ginger is also a catalyst for absorption in the gut, thus allowing full absorption of Kung Fu Tonic and its beneficial properties. But that’s not all Ginger is revered for! It’s known for supporting digestion, aiding in motion sickness, providing a natural energy boost and assisting with menstrual cramps!
The Horseradish used in Kung Fu Tonic is CCOF-Certified Organic. Horseradish is another ancient food/medicine that hails back to the ancient Greeks and similar civilizations. According to Greek mythology, the Delphic Oracle told the god Apollo that horseradish was worth its weight in gold! Horseradish was used by the ancient Egyptians for medicinal and culinary purposes. Horseradish is used for promoting diuretic function. The root, historically, has been used to promote a strong reproductive system, to help to clear the lungs, to assist in promoting healthy sinuses, and even used topically for ingrowing toenails!
CAYENNE PEPPER (CA)
Ewwwe Weeee! We know Cayenne Pepper from our Grandmother who used it regularly as food medicine for treating colds, sniffles, fevers and yucky feelings. Cayenne powder is typically found as an ingredient in many detox and flu fighter type juices–and for good reason! Cayenne is an amazing strengthener for the circulatory system! We include just enough cayenne to enjoy it’s awesome circulatory-promoting properties and allow the body to easily assimilate the other ingredients found in Kung Fu Tonic. It ‘gets the blood pumping’ as Grandma said! Cayenne pepper is high in vitamin A. It also contains vitamin B6, vitamin E, vitamin C, riboflavin, Potassium and Manganese.
SEA SALT (UT)
We use a high-quality OMRI-Listed Sea Salt from ancient salt deposits in Utah. (OMRI-Listed = safe for use in Organic products). Our salt is pink (meaning it contains vital trace minerals) and sourced from ancient salt deposits in Utah. Regular consumption of sea salt is considered to provide essential minerals, trace elements, promote electrolyte intake and balance, support absorption in the body, assists in eliminating toxins, and encouraging the body’s ability to normalize blood pressure.
OREGANO OIL (NM)
We source an excellent oil of Oregano that is handcrafted from wild-harvested Oregano. We use an alcohol-free Oregano Oil and a potent one at that! We include just enough to keep the flavor balanced and the positive attributes of the herb palatable–which is just a tad, as this oil is very concentrated! Another ancient Mediterranean wonder, Hippocrates used oregano in ancient Greece as an antiseptic, and for promoting a strong, regular, digestive system. Cretan Oregano is still used by the people of the Mediterranean to soothe sore throats and sniffles. Oregano oil is truly an ancient health wonder!
