Sprout’s Voice Remedy Herbal Supplement

I have a problem with chronic rhinitis as well as chronic bronchitis. Which means, on occasion, my voice gets scratchy, hoarse, and dusky. Sprout’s Voice Remedy promised to help with that. Unfortunately, I have to report that I found it did nothing for my throat, voice, phlegm or occasional hoarseness.

Sprout’s Voice Remedy is packed to the gills with a proprietary herbal blend (Slippery elm, Fennel Seed , Horseradish Root, Thyme, Celery Seed , HorehoundHerb, & Thyme) suspended in vegetable glycerine, but how much of that is actually included in the “deionized” water is really up to them, thanks to the obfuscation allowed by “proprietary” blends. It’s made in a GMP certified facility and Kosher Certified. Sprout’s recommended 2 drops from the dropper bottle in a glass of water and that one should see results in about 2-3 hours. It was like a sweet herbal water, only very sweet, and I wasn’t a big fan. I got more relief with my usual hot tea with lemon and honey, or my new favorite, Jakeman’s lozenges. I wasn’t looking for a “cure” for my conditions, even though they’re temporary, but a little relief would have been nice. So, all in all, I can’t really recommend this product, especially at the $29.50 they’re asking when my Jakeman’s throat drops were just $1.50, and herbal tea with honey and lemon is even less per serving.

Some people are big on herbal remedies. I can get behind that if there’s tangible results. I think there might be more of a placebo effect at work here for the reviews I read that were so glowingly positive, or perhaps I just got a bad bottle. Whatever the case may be, I’m not the biggest fan of this product, as I saw no results, and don’t see a reason to spend almost $30 for 2 fl. oz. of sweetened herbal water.
