About the ingredients...
Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar comes from apples that have been crushed, distilled and then fermented. Friendly bacteria turn the alcohol into acetic acid.
Cayenne (Capsicum Frutescens)
Fiercely hot and pungent, cayenne, also known as cayenne pepper, is one of the most widely used spice ingredients for culinary purposes. Cayenne fruits are slender, elongated pods derived from the capsicum family plant (a cultivar of Capsicum annuum related to bell peppers, jalapeños, paprika, and others). Cayenne is a source of capsaicin.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale), is a rhizome - a thick underground stem that sprouts roots and shoots. This "hot" spice is native to warmer parts of Asia, such as China, Japan, and India, but is now also grown in parts of South American and Africa.
Turmeric (Curcuma Longa)
Turmeric is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant (Curcuma longa) of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It is native to southern Asia.
When not used fresh, the rhizomes (roots) are boiled for 30 - 45 minutes and then dried in hot ovens, after which they are ground into a deep orange/yellow powder that is commonly used as a natural colouring and delicious spice in Bangladeshi, Indian, Iranian and Pakistani cuisine, as well as for dyeing.
Turmeric root powder has been long used by Ayurvedic practitioners, largely due to its main constituent, curcumin. More recently, it has become increasingly popular in the Western world for use in both food and food supplements, after much TV, magazine and radio coverage.
Green tea leaf
Camellia thea, or green tea, is a source of catechin polyphenols - Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), in particular.
Organic black pepper
Black pepper (Piper nigrum) is a flowering vine in the family Piperaceae, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning. When dried, the fruit is known as a peppercorn. When fresh and fully mature, it is approximately 5 millimetres (0.20 in) in diameter, dark red, and, like all drupes, contains a single seed.
Peppercorns, and the ground pepper derived from them, may be described simply as pepper, or more precisely as black pepper (cooked and dried unripe fruit), green pepper (dried unripe fruit) and white pepper (ripe fruit seeds). Piperine is the alkaloid responsible for the pungency of black pepper.
