Apple Cider Vinegar Cold & Flu Tonic


2 minutes

Cooking time

For the majority of us, honey and lemon is the staple go to when that dreaded cold strikes. Luckily, there are more effective tonics to get you through the cold and flu season.

With the help of registered nutritional therapist, Eva Humphries, we’ve put together the perfect flu fighter for when you are feeling less than optimum.


  1. Put a sprig of thyme and 2 slices of ginger in a cup. Pour boiling water over them and allow it to steep for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the thyme and ginger and stir in a teaspoon of each of apple cyder vinegar and manuka honey. 

Why is this good for me?

  • Thyme - a common herb that is effective against sore throat causing bacteria 
  • Ginger - a multi-purpose spice used for centuries for combating harmful bugs  
  • Apple cyder vinegar - a good all around germ fighter
  • Manuka honey - a supercharged honey that is thought to reduce the severity of infections
