Although cold and flu season is still a couple of months away , it’s never too early to start stocking up on natural cures. If sickness strikes this season, ditch those icky tasting cough drops and consider soothing that sore throat with the sweet taste of Bee M.D. organic honey throat drops.
Since ancient times, honey has been used as a natural healer and restorer, and even today its properties remain beneficial. Instead of dextromenthorphan, a cough suppressant found in many over-the-counter medications, Bee M.D. throat drops use organic honey and cooling menthol. Studies have shown that honey provides many of the same benefits as dextromenthorphan, making Bee M.D.’s throat drops a safe alternative to traditional cough suppressants.
Bee M.D. organic honey throat drops are USDA-certified organic and contain no artificial colors or ingredients. The throat drops are packaged in bags made of only all-natural, recycled or biodegradable materials. In addition, with each purchase, Bee M.D. donates money to support the research and protection of bees.
Bees play a vital role in pollinating flowers, trees, fruits and crops, but since the 1940s, bee populations in the U.S. have declined by more than 50 percent. In 2007, 30 to 70 percent of Western colonies of bees died. Experts labeled this decline as the Colony Collapse Disorder, but they still don’t know what causes it. By purchasing a bag of Bee M.D. throat drops, you can help fund research to discover what’s happening to the bees.
Bee M.D. organic honey throat drops come in two flavors: natural honey and honey lemon. Each bag contains 21 throat drops and can be purchased for $3.29 at a variety of stores across the country, including Meijer, CVS, Rite Aid, Hy-Vee and Price Chopper.
