Science confirms your grandma’s cold remedy really works, for an amazing reason!
Has your mother or grandmother ever told you to gargle with warm salty water when you have a cold?
This treatment has been around for thousands of years but faded from popularity when antibiotics came around. Now scientists are seeing warm salt water gargles and nasal rinses can reduce your cold by almost 2 days!
Your cells use the CHLORIDE in the sodium chloride (salt) to make an anti-viral BLEACH. Not only does it reduce your suffering time, but reduces your chances of spreading your germs around to your family and co-workers!
You’re advised to BOIL the water first, then add the salt, let it cool before using. Use approximately 1 heaping teaspoon salt for every cup of water.
