Because dry throat should be the least of your worries!

away and soothe it with any of these tips:

Ease the discomfort with a bowl of warm bone broth.

Did you know that compounds such as carnosine found in broths help prevent inflammatory responses that trigger sore throat or congestion? It may not have direct medical effects to cure sore throat but warm liquids can always make you feel a little bit better. This also helps make breathing easier by soothing sinuses.

Mix your daily dose of coffee with honey.

Good news, coffee lovers! No need to set aside your fave morning drink every time you’re sick. According to Primary Care Respiratory Journal, drinking coffee with honey every after eight hours eases coughing and soothes throat irritation.

Let apple cider vinegar save the day.
