What the heck is GoGargle!?
GoGargle! is the new and improved version of what you might know as Grandma’s salt water home remedy for sore throats. For generations you have heard Grandmas (and doctors) recommend gargling with a glass of warm salt water to help relieve a sore throat. With soothing ingredients like honey, chamomile, aloe & zinc, GoGargle! is a simple, surprisingly tasty way to soothe your sore throat. GoGargle! comes in the form of an effervescent tablet that you simply drop in a glass of warm water to dissolve. Not only are GoGargle! tablets simple to use and perfect for on-the-go, GoGargle! tablets dissolve quickly, so you can start gargling sooner!
Why should you GoGargle!?
Several studies have found that gargling with salt water can reduce swelling in a sore throat.
According to Dr. Philip T. Hagen, editor in chief of the Mayo Clinic Book of Home Remedies, “A saline solution can draw excess fluid from inflamed tissues in the throat, making them hurt less.”
Gargling with salt water helps loosen mucus build up with the help of the sodium content found in salt.
When you have a sore throat, your tonsils are generally inflamed which results in pain around the tonsils, making it difficult to swallow. Gargling with salt water cleans bacteria from this area and draws moisture out of the swollen tissues, relieving pain and preventing further bacteria growth.
GoGargle! doesn’t just mask the pain of a sore throat, it works to relieve it.
Other added ingredients like honey, aloe, and chamomile soothe and ease the irritation while the salt does its work to relieve a sore throat entirely!
How was Gogargle! invented?
GoGargle! was invented by a resourceful, experienced RN and mother, January O’Connor, in order to help soothe her husband Tim’s dry, prickly, sore throat. January’s concoction of salt water with honey, chamomile, aloe, and mint, which she gave to Tim on a cold February night, is now the compressed and convenient effervescent tablet we know as GoGargle!
