It's almost that time!
Quite some years ago my sister in law turned me on to Throat Coat tea. Good stuff. Had never heard of it before, thought the name was funny, but I took her advice and found that it worked great for a sore throat.
Then a few years later we were visiting my husband's family at Christmas time and I can down with a nasty virus. My throat was a mess. Jason's younger sister offered to run to the store to get something that would really help...she came home with a box of Throat Coat tea. :) And again, it helped.
Warm herbal teas are so soothing and Throat Coat® looks like a great product to sooth a sore throat and help you rid yourself of excess mucous. One thing to note, however, is that glycyrrhizic acid can raise your blood pressure, so if you have hypertension or heart disease, you may want to be careful.
Here are links to all of the ingredients:
Wild Cherry Bark
Bitter Fennel Fruit
Sweet Orange Peel
Now, I do not give this to my son who had the liver transplant. Unfortunately, I cannot give him anything that will give his immune system a boost. Most herbs have qualities that stimulate the immune system so herbs are a huge no-no for David.
However, my other children get to suffer through the joy of mommy giving them wonderful things to fight off the lovely bugs they bring home from school.
I love to sit back and sip a hot cup of Throat Coat when I am coming down with a sore throat. It is one weapon in the arsenal I have to battle the many bugs that assault our family during the cold/flu season.
