Apple Cider Vinegar Shots Are All the Rage – Should You Try Them?

August 9, 2018

Apple cider vinegar is the new “it” drink. Everyone from health bloggers to women’s magazines to Dr. Oz is raving about this buzzworthy health tonic. Even top celebs like actress Hillary Duff, Olympian gymnast Gabby Douglas, and pop star Katy Perry swear by the stuff. What’s all the fuss?

A “new” old drink

While it may be newly popular, drinking apple cider vinegar as a health tonic isn’t new at all. In fact, apple cider vinegar has been used to promote health and well-being in cultures around the world for centuries. The simple fact is: People love the way it makes them feel. There’s just one problem. Well… three problems. It doesn’t taste great. Drinking it straight can sting your throat. And undiluted, it can erode your tooth enamel. (Yikes!)

Here’s the good news

Flora’s new Apple Cider Vinegar wellness shots (US/CA) solve all three of these problems. Thoughtfully brewed in small batches at our facility in Burnaby, British Columbia, these daily wellness shots blend the tang of organic apple cider vinegar with the sweetness of organic apple juice concentrate, so they’re entirely drinkable—and entirely organic! Because the apple cider vinegar is diluted, the drinks don’t have that stinging sensation of straight apple cider vinegar, and they won’t harm your pearly whites either. (Phew!) But that’s not even the best part.

Taking apple cider vinegar to the next level

 The truth is we’re not the only ones making apple cider vinegar drinks. You can find quite a few brands in stores and online that make this age-old remedy more palatable and less… burny.

However, we are the only ones taking apple cider vinegar to the next level.

How, you ask? Look at our ingredients. We start with the highest quality, US-made apple cider vinegar. Then we blend it with cleansing herbs. Finally, we enhance it with select botanicals like turmeric, ginger, and elderberry for an extra health and flavor kick.

You can choose from three unique blends, all with complex and enticing flavors. Earthy and aromatic Turmeric & Cinnamon (US/CA) will refresh you and support healthy digestion.* Rich and fruity Elderberry (US/CA) will quench your thirst and support your general health and well-being.* Spicy and sweet Ginger & Lemon Flavor (US/CA) will rejuvenate your senses and support healthy digestion.*

We’ve been drinking the stuff ourselves, and while we admit we’re a bit biased, we’d say this is one trend you’ll want to get all over. Bottoms up!

      Hi Scott,
      The wellness shots are all milder tasting and less acidic than pure apple cider vinegar, but they still have an invigorating little kick.

      The elderberry is probably the smoothest of the three, with a tangy sweet-tart, slightly fruity flavour.
      The ginger in the lemon and ginger flavour is quite pronounced and a bit spicy-hot.
      The cinnamon turmeric is peppery-sweet and aromatic.

      I hope that helps!

    How much does one wellness shot have, one table spoon of apple cider vinegar ?Malic acid ?

      Hi Danny,
      Thanks for your question. The formula is proprietary so specific ingredient amounts aren’t listed but apple cider vinegar comes after water and the herbs in terms of amounts in descending order. The vinegar contains both malic and acetic acid. Our quality control tests for acetic acid and it should be between 0.5-0.6% in the finished drink.
