Tamara's Herbes herbal syrups are created from organically-grown herbs and raw Missouri honey. Honey is a perfect delivery system to carry the health benefits of the herbs into the cells of the body, and adds all the amazing health benefits of honey while avoiding harmful side effects that are associated with synthetic, chemical-laden syrups found in the drug stores and pharmacies.
~~~~~James M. Steckelberg, M.D., from the Mayo Clinic says:
Drinking honey mixed with tea or warm lemon water is a time-honored way to soothe a sore throat. Now researchers are studying honey as a cough suppressant. In a 2007 study, children ages 2 and older with upper respiratory tract infections were given up to 2 teaspoons (10 milliliters) of honey at bedtime. The honey seemed to reduce nighttime coughing and improve sleep. In fact, in the study, honey appeared to be as effective as the cough suppressant dextromethorphan in typical over-the-counter doses.
