Our earth ciders swap out the fiery qualities of our Fire Cider for a much mellower, yet equally bold, profile. There are no cayenne pepper, onion or garlic in these infusions. Instead, we use black pepper and cooler roots such as organic beets, dandelion and burdock roots. There is far less heat and much more of a grounding element - hence, the earth.
Our Wilder Earth Cider uses dandelion and burdock roots, which have long been traditionally used as a detoxifying blend and an antidote to water retention. In fact, this blend is still commonly used by women during their moon cycles and by bodybuilders seeking to shed water weight before competition, among others.
Our Beetroot Earth Cider uses organic beet root, which is another powerful detoxifying agent and a fan favorite for those seeking to enhance kidney function.
additionally, there is the presence of cinnamon, with just a touch of heat but far more sweet. We only use ceylon cinnamon, which is almost completely void of the toxin coumarin, which is abundantly present in the far more prevalent Cassiar Cinnamon.
The black pepper - derived solely from whole black peppercorns - performs an important function of increasing the bioavailability of the curcumin, the active ingredient in the whole turmeric that goes into these and all our tonics.
