I was sent 2 free products from True Botanica to test, review and blog about. True Botanica is a company that was founded in 2004 and creates innovative nutraceutical supplements, herbal tinctures, functional foods and natural cosmetics. The ingredients for their formulas are carefully sourced from non GMO, biodynamic and organic materials. More information can be found here.
I received 2 containers of Throat Defense in 2 different flavors – menthol and berry:
The intended use of this product is to promote long term immune support (when used daily), a natural throat remedy for quick soothing relief and even a bonus of fresh breath! It utilizes probiotics and other helpful ingredients like xylitol and trace minerals to achieve this goal. Each container comes with 1.1 oz of powder which breaks down into thirty 1/4 teaspoon servings. This product is well suited for the entire family. Effective for adults, yet gentle enough for children.
I started using this product on Friday of last week and have used it every day since. My first reaction was that I really liked the packaging. It’s fairly vibrant, easy to read and it gives fairly detailed instructions on it. The product itself only takes up about 1/2 of the container but that may be because it advises you to “Shake Well Before Using”. The Throat Defense berry flavor has a a bit of a strong, grainy smell to it but tastes NOTHING like that. In fact, the taste was quite pleasant and had little to no aftertaste! I put 1/4 teaspoon of the crystals on my tongue and allowed them to melt before chewing a bit and swallowing. I tried the menthol out on Saturday and that had a more pleasant, minty scent to it and tasted very similarly to Halls. The menthol even seemed to clear my sinuses very subtly. I can definitely see where the menthol part of the product would be very soothing if I had a cough or sore throat.
Each container can be purchased through their website for $7.90 a piece or at a reduced rate if you’re a member or if you’re buying 4 or more. It definitely affordable when compared to similar products on the market ($6 or $7 for just a 10 day supply).
