Start the day like a samurai with ume drinking vinegar! Dilute around 15ml of the fruity vinegar in water and drink before a meal up to twice a day. In Japan vinegar has been drunk for centuries, as it is considered to have many health benefits. The samurai were among the first people to popularise the drinking of vinegar, as they believed it helped them to live longer. In small amounts it can aid digestion, boost the immune system and counter fatigue – so it would have certainly helped!

The ume ‘vinegar’ is actually the juice that’s extracted from ume plums when they are pickled to make umeboshi. By itself this juice is often very salty, so it is combined with rice vinegar, apple vinegar and honey to turn it into this refreshing drink. You can also dilute it in hot water for a more comforting drink in the colder months.

The ume drinking vinegar comes with a measuring cap for easy use.

Ingredients: pure rice vinegar, apple vinegar, ume vinegar (Japanese plum vinegar), oligosaccharide (prebiotic), trehalose (sweetener), honey, ume extract (Japanese plum extract).
