Antibacterial Throat Spray

Antibacterial Throat Spray

When it comes to defending itself against bacteria the human body is remarkably well designed. From the tiny hairs that line our nostrils, to the mucus in our nasal passages and throats, to the skin which covers our entire body. White blood cells patrol our circulatory system, looking for viruses and infections to supress and destroy. Your body does an amazing job of protecting itself from unwanted germs.

But, as we all know, every now and again we need to give our body’s a bit of a helping hand. There are lots of things we can do to help support a healthy and robust immune system – this is our best line of defence against infection. However, sometimes even the healthiest individuals succumb to invasive bacteria – most commonly in the form of a cough or cold.

Prevention is Better than Cure

It’s common knowledge that there’s no cure for the common cold. Colds are generally caused by viruses and along with a sore throat, symptoms can include:

  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Cough
  • Mild headache
  • Body aches
  • Temperature/fever

Because there’s no cure, it’s best to try and ward off such infections before they arise. At BeeVital we develop natural health products which support the body’s normal immune function. One such product is our innovative Propolis & Honey Throat Spray.

The antibacterial properties of honey have been understood for hundreds of years. It’s commonly used to treat wounds, keeping them free from infection, as well as things like tooth decay.

Another bee product, which forms the basis for most of our products, is propolis. Sometimes called ‘bee glue’, propolis is a sticky substance produced by honeybees from plant resins. The bees use it to protect their hives from infection, block up holes and prevent the spread of bacteria. Propolis is highly antibacterial.

How Does Propolis Work

Propolis is made from plant resins which are high in bioflavonoids. Flavonoids are chemicals which are antioxidant. They have been shown to be antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antiseptic and antitumoral. When these chemicals come into contact with bacteria and viruses they have the effect of inhibiting their growth. Propolis does not target specific bacteria or viruses, like a pharmaceutical antibiotic. Rather, it helps the body defend itself against the infection by suppressing the replication of bacteria, preventing its spread around the body.

Our antibacterial throat spray contains high potency propolis extract, high in flavonoids. The pocket-sized spray bottle is perfect for taking out and about. Use it regularly as a preventitive measure, or apply a few sprays several times a day at the first sign of a tickly cough or cold.

Propolis, Honey & Essential Oils

As well as propolis and honey, which are both antibacterial, our antibacterial throat spray also contains essential oils:

  • Aniseed Oil
  • Eucalyptus Oil
  • Fennel Oil

Each of these oils have proven health benefits. Aniseed contains flavonoids which exhibit antiviral properties. Eucalyptus is antiseptic and fennel is anti-inflammatory. Each of these are highly beneficial when it comes to treating the symptoms of a cough or cold.

Menthol for Decongestion

BeeVital Propolis & Honey Throat Spray also contains menthol. Menthol (from the peppermint plant) has a decongestant effect. You might have experience this when sucking on an extra-strong mint! The cooling effect of menthol reduces the feeling of congestion in the nose, making things more comfortable.

A Winning Combination

By combining honey and propolis which are antibacterial with essential oils and menthol which are known to combat the symtoms of a cough and cold, our team have developed a winning formula. Taken as a preventitive measure, Propolis & Honey Throat Spray has the capacty to combat bacteria and viruses which cause infections. If you come down with a cough, our throat spray is also an effective remedy, with powerful ingredients known to soothe and suppress the symptoms of colds.
