What uses does the NutriBiotic Throat Spray offer? - NutriBiotic is more than a sore throat spray. The unique combination of ingredients has been designed to address several mouth, throat, and nasal conditions. NutriBiotic throat spray can be used to suppress a sore throat, by decreasing inflammation caused by an infection or minor allergy. It can also open up the nasal airways by its soothing aromatic properties. NutriBiotic Throat Spray aids in the overall body immune functions with the help of Grapefruit Seed Extract and the vital mineral zinc to accelerate recovery time. What makes NutriBiotic Throat Spray superior to other natural throat sprays? - In a comparison with nine of the most popular natural throat sprays, NutriBiotic Throat Spray is the only spray with zinc as one of the primary active ingredients! Zinc boosts the immune system by increasing the reproduction of the cells that fight and destroy foreign invaders, especially those associated with the common cold. Zinc decreases inflammation and swelling caused by allergies by inhibiting the production of histamine usually produced in the throat, nose, and airways. Zinc also aids in the resistance of Gingivitis by making gums more resistant and reducing plague build up. NutriBiotic Throat Spray has incorporated Grapefruit Seed Extract as an immune booster. Grapefruit Seed Extract and Zinc make a great combination that work harmoniously together to suppress foreign invaders and strengthen the immune system. Additionally, because the ingredients are natural, NutriBiotic Throat Spray provides a great alternative to the alcohol based throat sprays that are offered over-the-counter. In fact, in a price comparison with other natural throat sprays, NutriBiotic Throat Spray was 1 of the 3 least expensive. What is zinc gluconate? - A naturally occurring form of zinc that is 14% elemental zinc and 86% gluconic acid used mostly in throat lozenges, mouth wash, nasal sprays, and throat sprays. I am concerned that there is too much zinc in the Throat Spray. - The Throat Spray contains the equivalent of approximately 0.5 mg of zinc per spray. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of zinc for healthy individuals is 18 mg per day for men and 12 mg of zinc per day for women. It is generally suggested that when treating the common cold a person should consume more than 200 mg of zinc evenly over a period of 24 hours. The Throat Spray is not designed to meet this amount, but to provide a subtle complementary amount that provides support to the areas most affected by the common cold. Can children use it? - Children over the age of six can use the Throat Spray. It is recommended that children under the age of six should consult their health care provider. Why is Stevia in your Throat Spray? - NutriBiotic Throat Spray uses Stevia because it prohibits the growth and reproduction of the bacteria that cause plaque. Throat Spray should be constantly applied to the throat and mouth, which means any sugar-based flavoring can increase the risks of tooth decay and gum disease. List of Ingredients Purified Water Glycerin - Glycerin aids in maintaining a moist throat, as a dry sore throat is prone to a super bacterial infection. The glycerin used is from a vegetable source. Zinc Gluconate (0.5 mg zinc per spray) - Zinc Gluconate is a naturally occurring mineral that is 14% elemental zinc and 86% gluconic acid. Zinc is important for maximum immune support and function, helps prevent many bacterial and viral diseases, and has anti-inflammation and antioxidant properties. Citricidal - Citricidal is our concentrated form of Grapefruit Seed Extract. PEG-40 Castor Oil - PEG-40 Castor Oil is a polyethylene glycol derivative of castor oil. It has been chemically modified so that it is an emulsifier rather than oil. It helps dissolve the essential oils in the product as well as soothes the throat. Stevia Extract - Stevia is from the sunflower (Asteraceae) family. It is used in the formula for flavor, but unlike other sweeteners, it will inhibit the formation of plaque. Stevia has zero calories because the active sweet ingredient stevioside is a glycoside, which the human body cannot metabolize. Slippery Elm Extract - Slippery Elm Extract is the inner bark of the Slippery Elm tree. It acts as a demulcent, emollient, expectorant, diuretic, and a nutritive. Slippery Elm Extract also has a soothing and healing action on inflamed mucous membranes. Peppermint Oil - Peppermint Oil is natural oil added for flavor. It helps clear the sinuses, which is helpful during the cold season. Certified Organic Aloe Vera Gel - Aloe Vera Gel is derived from the thin-walled mucilaginous cells of organically grown aloe plants. It helps soothe and heal infected areas by dilating the blood vessels to allow fast transportation and action of antigen fighting immune cells. Aloe Vera also supports the functions and replication of the immune cells. Additionally, it inhibits the release of histamine that causes inflammation and swelling from infections or allergens. Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice Extract (DGL) - DGL is a botanical member of the pea family. It soothes soreness in the throat and fights viruses that cause respiratory illnesses and the overproduction of mucus. Menthol - Menthol is used for a local anesthetic, for its counterirritant qualities, and it will soothe the throat.
