It’s that time of year (Brrrr!!)…..and those cold temperatures don’t seem to be stopping any time soon. Unfortunately, for my family that can often mean sore throats associated with the flu or a cold. And of course, there’s the never-ending allergies too.
Sore throats can be anything from a minor irritant to horribly painful. One thing I’ve learned over the years is to gargle with salt water.
Have you ever gargled with salt water to help your sore throat? It’s not just an old wives tale……and here’s why?
When you have a sore throat, your tonsils are generally inflamed which results in pain around the tonsils, making it difficult to swallow. Gargling with salt water cleans bacteria from this area and draws moisture out of the swollen tissues, relieving pain and preventing further bacteria growth.
That’s why I’m introducing you to GoGargle!, which is a salt water gargle formulated to help soothe irritated, itchy, and inflamed throats.
So while the salt water works to relieve the pain completely, the other added ingredients, which include honey, aloe, and chamomile, soothe and ease the irritation.
I recently tried GoGargle! and found it to be more soothing than just regular salt water. It works! This is something to definitely have on hand in your medicine cabinet!
Best of all, you can find GoGargle! at local stores nationwide, including your local CVS store!
