Brevard, NC (December 7, 2009) - Gaia Herbs, known for their high quality, innovative organic herbal products, introduces Sage & Aloe Throat Shield Spray and Lozenges, carefully formulated to provide maximum support for a healthy throat. An extension of the Rapid Relief Immune Support line, the herbal throat spray and lozenges contain five important active ingredients—Sage, in a patented extract form, as well as Aloe, Myrrh, Peppermint and Cinnamon—to ensure fast acting and effective relief from commonly known irritants such as smoke, dry air, pollution, and other seasonal immune challenges.
According to Keri Marshall, ND, Medical Director for Gaia Herbs, “Aloe Vera gel, Myrrh resin, and Sage create a lasting barrier effect and coat the throat for lasting comfort. When the throat is irritated, mucilaginous herbs such as those found in this proprietary blend, help to restore a normal protective lining in the membrane of the throat by providing hydration and immune support. Essential oils of Peppermint and Cinnamon create an immediate cooling sensation making these products a favorite for quick relief.”
• Sage and Aloe Throat Shield Spray is packaged in a 30 ml bottle with a unique spray wand that delivers the formula directly to the back of the throat for faster, more effective relief and prevents wasted product. Suggested retail price is $19.99.
• Sage and Aloe Throat Shield Lozenges “melt” quickly in the mouth, have a great minty taste and contain freeze-dried honey. Packaged in 20 count blister packs for easy transport in a purse or briefcase, the product retails for $11.99.
“Both the spray and the lozenges can be used together to protect and relieve dryness, burning, and difficulty in swallowing,” adds Dr. Marshall.
Products are available in a convenient register display that provides four of each sku or can be merchandised individually. Sage and Aloe Throat Shield Spray and Lozenges join the Rapid Relief Immune Support line of products that includes three syrups for winter wellness: Bronchial Wellness Herbal Syrup, Black Elderberry Syrup (super concentrated formula) and Black Elderberry Night Time Syrup for healthy sleep during times of immune stress.
