Fire cider fanatics claim that it has numerous benefits from curbing cravings to preventing colds. Curious about this much-touted beverage, I drank fire cider on the regular for a week to see if it lived up to the hype. Fire cider was developed by an herbalist in the s. She started with apple cider vinegar, a fermented ingredient proven to have antibacterial and antioxidant properties , as the base, adding other ingredients such as horseradish for decongestion , ginger for warmth , garlic and onion for antibacterial properties , cayenne to boost metabolism and immunity , and honey to tie everything together and make the drink more palatable. My typical routine for a week took things further, and consisted of drinking a tablespoon multiple times daily: first thing in the morning before breakfast, right after lunch, and around 3pm during my usual afternoon slump.

Dorene Petersen, president of the American College of Healthcare Sciences in Portland, Oregon, said the horseradish is really the star.
