Nicole Deninger, Tough Mother’s President and Combatant-in-Chief, has dedicated her life to defending and nurturing the lives of others from the battlefield to the family room. After a successful career in the military, Nicole’s mother was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma, a rare type of uterine cancer, in her early 50s. Blindsided, Nicole found herself desperately searching for strategies to combat this unexpected enemy. After her mother’s sudden passing, Nicole continued to search for long-term, life-giving health solutions and sought guidance from nutritionists, doctors, trainers, and homeopathic healers. Over and over again, the signs pointed to the powers of folk remedies: natural concoctions made from whole organic ingredients. With the help of professional chef Ed Ebert, Nicole began crafting homemade health tonics to determine the perfect immune-boosting mix. Tough Mother uses exclusively organic and raw ingredients that are steeped and fermented for 6 weeks. Whether you sip it or shoot it, Tough Mother’s well-balanced, dynamic and nutrient-packed health shots are filled with beneficial bacteria and complex acids.
