The FLU. For the past few years, no other word has struck as much fear during the winter months as this one. Pepper juice can replace those flu shots.
Why we choose vodka over ACV:
1. vodka pulls out more of the medicinal qualities
2. vodka makes the mucous membranes in the mouth more permeable, so the tincture can enter the bloodstream more effectively
3. vodka increases the shelf life of the tincture
4. The higher the alcohol content, the better the tincture will work.
The amount of alcohol in the average dose of tincture is equal to the alcohol in a ripe banana. If you're still concerned about the alcohol, you can place the tincture in a cup, pour boiling water over it, and the alcohol will evaporate within seconds.
