The Long Life Elixir!

How to make Swedish Bitters using the traditional method.

Swedish Bitters (also known as Swedish Herbs) have been around since the middle 1500's.  This mixture was invented as a digestive supplement, but it's effects far outweigh the original intent a thousand fold!

Survival Enterprises sells a 3.5 ounce bag of the imported dried Swedish Herbs which, when the directions on the bag are followed, will make approximately 1 liter of the powerful Swedish Bitters.

You place this herbal mixture into a wide-necked 2 liter bottle. You then add 1.5 liter of 70 to 100 proof vodka, rye or fruit spirit to this mixture.

Leave the lid off (so oxygen can enter), but cover with a cloth (to keep bugs out) and leave standing in the sun or near the stove (in other words - a fairly warm area) for 14 days. Make sure to shake this bottle gently daily.

After about 14 days, the liquid mixure is strained and the liquid is poured into smaller bottles, well stoppered and stored in a cool place. This way it can be kept for many years.

The longer it stands the more effective it becomes! Shake well before each use. Alternatively, some of the liquid can be strained into a smaller bottle and the rest left in the larger bottle until required.

The above is a Government ORDERED statement.
It is NOT based in either reality or sanity.
Just like our Government.

In a landmark decision on Friday, Jan. 15, 1999, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that
the health claim rules imposed by the FDA unconstitutional and in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act.
The court instructed the FDA to allow the use of disclaimers on labels rather than to suppress these claims outright.
The court further held prohibiting nutrient disease relationship claims invalid under the first Amendment to the Constitution.
