Yogi Organic Herbal Tea Throat Comfort® Caffeine Free Description
Throat Health Support. Coats and Soothes Irritated Throat. Throat Comfort™ is a naturally sweet herbal supplement tea designed to support the respiratory system and soothe mucous membranes in the trachea, irritated by common, everyday stress. Their healing formula is made with Slippery Elm Bark and Mullein, favorite demulcents of Western and European herbalism prized for their mucilage content and usefulness in relieving minor irritation in the mucous membranes of the throat.
The mucilaginous substances present in these demulcent herbs help to form a protective slippery coating along the throat's mucous lining, which can be especially important for singers and public speakers. Their herbal supplement tea includes Black Cherry Bark for both its soothing effects and pleasant cherry flavor. This herb, native to North America, includes cyanogenic glycosides, such as prunasin, which help suppress spasms and soothe the muscles lining the bronchioles. To support respiratory function, the recipe has also been augmented with organic Licorice (Glyceryrrhiza glabra) and warming spices. Because Throat Comfort™ is naturally tasty, gentle and effective, both children and adults will enjoy it.
For best tea infusion, pour 8 oz boiling water over one Throat Comfort™ tea bag and steep for 5 to 10 minutes. For stronger effect, use 2 tea bags. Gently squeeze each tea bag to fully release the active ingredients. Due to the naturally occurring mucilage in the herbs, the longer you steep, the more soothing the tea will be. When your throat is irritated, sip throughout the day and use as a gargle. To care for a delicate throat, such as for singing or public speaking, drink 1-2 cups per day.
