First Aid Throat Spray Frequently Asked Questions
What uses does the NutriBiotic Throat Spray offer?
NutriBiotic Throat Spray 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 plaque build up.
What is Zinc Gluconate?
A naturally occurring form of zinc that is 14% elemental zinc and 86% gluconic acid used mostly in throat lozenges, mouthwash, 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.
The NutriBiotic Story
In 1980, after nearly ten years in the nutritional supplement industry, NutriBiotic was founded based on the principle that everyone deserves good health. Inspired by the research and recommendations of the world's only two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., they began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. They felt that the public should have the best possible variety of the best possible nutrients at the best possible price, and their initial successes with their family of products showed that you thought so too.
Soon after NutriBiotic began filling the need for quality nutritional supplements, they found another need - the need for high quality, nutrient dense protein in a hypoallergenic form for the chemical and food sensitive individual. Their Rice Protein powder meets that need without soy, milk, egg, wheat or yeast.
In 1987 NutriBiotic pioneered the process and use of grapefruit seed extract. You will find the fruits of their labors in their range of products containing Citricidal, including their skin cleansers, shower gel and bubble bath, dental gel, deodorant stick, foot powder, multi-purpose liquid concentrate, CapsulesPlus, and more.
The folks at NutriBiotic stand committed to providing the very best for you and your family and are pleased to be able to offer you an ever-expanding range of quality nutritional supplements and personal care formulas developed with the intent of protecting and enhancing your health.
