Is salt water good for sore throats?

Yes, gargling with salt water can be helpful if you have a sore throat and is an easy remedy to put together when you have nothing else to hand.

Salt has natural antibacterial properties and probably works by ‘sucking’ the water out of bacterial cells, dehydrating them.

For this reason, salt has been used as a natural preservative for many centuries.

However, if your sore throat is severe, you may find that this home remedy may not be sufficient for bringing you relief, and you may need something stronger such as the A.Vogel Echinacea and Sage sore throat spray.
