Apple cider vinegar sore throat gargle

Apple cider vinegar sore throat gargle

  • Sore throat is a pain or irritation in the throat that becomes worse as you swallow. “A sore throat is the primary symptom of pharyngitis — inflammation of the throat (pharynx). But the terms “sore throat” and “pharyngitis” are often used interchangeably,” describes Mayo Clinic .
  • They also add that sore throat is most often caused by a virus like a cold or flu. Because of the cold weather, our bodies are more susceptible to colds and the flu.
  • This sage gargle also includes raw honey and apple cider vinegar to make a potent sore throat remedy.
  • Apple cider vinegar:
  •  It has been used for years as an effective cold and flu remedy for years because of its anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
  • Raw honey:
  • A 2007 study showed that honey may help relieve coughs and trouble sleeping.  A single dose of buckwheat honey was just as effective as a single dose of dextromethorphan in relieving nocturnal cough. Raw honey has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties, which help fuel the immune system and heal sore throats.
  • Sage: It is beneficial in reducing fevers and colds, sore throat and headaches because of its potent antioxidants like tannic acid and oleic acid.
  • Mix the following ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp of fresh or dried organic sage leaves
