Throaty Soothe is a new sore throat syrup for children that we were kindly sent to try out. Winter brings with it all manner of coughs and colds and it’s hard to know sometimes what to give the kids to help relieve the symptoms. For us adults there’s a whole host of different products we can take, different formulas, powders, tablets and more. So I was very interested when sent some information about Throaty Soothe and wanted to give it a try.
Throaty Soothe is a syrup made with natural ingredients:
A natural ingredient used to treat sore throats and dry, non-productive coughs. An irritation soothing effect comes from it’s mucins which coat the tissues lining the mouth and throat like a balm.
A flowering plant used to treat irritation to the tissues lining the mouth and throat and the associated sore throat and dry non productive cough. The leaves and flowers contain mucins which relieve iritation.
An essential trace element, which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is vital for healthy immune function.
It has a dual action formula, which soothes and protects, and because they physically target the site of soreness and contain no paracetamol, they are safe to use in combination with other medicines if needed. It’s a sugar free formulation with a delicious cherry flavour, which can be given to children from the age of 12 months. It comes in a non drip 100ml bottle and has a measuring cup provided (on top of the bottle) so you can give the right amount each time.It also contains no artificial colours.
Whilst my children had a cough/cold we tried this syrup with them and I was pleased that it did help to soothe the symptoms. They took it no problem as they both liked the taste and the measuring cup meant it wasn’t a game of get it in their mouth before they spill the contents of the spoon everywhere – I once dropped a bottle of red medicine whilst trying to get my daughter to take it and it wasn’t a good look!! As suggested on the leaflet inside the pack we kept up the dosage for a few days afterwards too to ensure the symptoms were gone.
Throaty Soothe is also available as strawberry flavoured Lozenges which are great to use on the go. They are suitable for children aged four and older and are available in packs of 24.
So if you’re looking for something to help ease the misery of a cough or sore throat for your little one it’s definitely worth giving this a try.
