The Ag World

Oregon Ag Fest 2017
Oregon’s Ag Fest

Oregon Ag Fest 2017

As the month of April waits for us just beyond tomorrow’s sunset, so too does this year’s Ag Fest. As a two-day celebration and convention for Oregon’s agriculture world, Ag Fest brought in over 20,000 visitors last year. The hosts of the event would say,

Our two-day event, aimed to help families better understand where their food, fiber and flora come from, is a unique learning experience, where hands-on exhibits make learning about Oregon’s vast agricultural industry educational and entertaining.

The Fire Brew Crew will be there to show off our premium health tonics, but we’d love to see you and your loved ones too! The Ag Fest will take place on Saturday April 29th and Sunday April 30th, and will be free for children 12 and under. Check out their website for more information, ways to get involved, and even a coupon for adult admissions!

As always with love,

A Toast to Turmeric

 

Raw and ground turmeric
A Love Poem for Turmeric From the Fire Brew Crew

 

Three cheers to this meritorious dream plant,

A popular player in the world of the supplement;

 

You’d think this spice a recent uproarious trend,

But age-old uses in eastern medicine have no end;

 

A cousin of Ginger, with its iconic orange-yellow hue,

Aromatic and savory, with so many benefits too;

 

Anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, anti-anxiety, and more,

Relief for stiffness, fatigue, and pain, so you can be less sore;

 

Purification of the blood, and remedies for respiratory strain,

Treatment for a cough, so you can breathe easy once again;

 

Not many other substances can cross the blood-brain barrier,

But lo, Turmeric is one of the few, so let it be your carrier,

 

And so, without question, the brain benefits from a daily dose,

That is why Turmeric is in every flavor of FireBrew, keep it close!

Fire Brew Clove

Our Clove brew, Turmeric included!

Trusting Your Gut with Apple Cider Vinegar

Hibiscus Fire Brew

As we gear up for an active and expansive Spring season here at the Fire Brew HQ in Portland, Oregon, it’s a good time to talk up one of the most foundational ingredients in our potent health tonic: raw, organic apple cider vinegar.

Adding a daily dose to your health and well-being regimen improves the stomach’s acidity allowing for better digestion (reducing instances of bloating and food-induced heartburn). Carbohydrates can be more effectively transformed into energy, even potentially interrupting the full absorption of unnecessary calories from breads and starches. For those with a sweet tooth, it also slows the rush of glucose in the blood stream, providing sugar-crashes with a much softer landing. Studies have also linked apple cider vinegar with lower blood pressure, balanced pH levels, and even solutions to bad breath.

Fittingly, apple cider vinegar has proven to foster more efficient nutrient absorption from the things we consume, making it the perfect base for all of our Fire Brews. The nutrient-dense selection of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices which we chop, juice, and shred in every bottle, hit their best stride because of the strong foundation we’ve laid with apple cider vinegar.

Check back soon for more reasons to keep a little Fire in your belly!
