The Best Throat Remedy for Singers: Throat Coat Tea Review


Hi and welcome to this video, in which I am
going to review tea for singers called Throat Coat. I am going to share my experience with
this tea as well as some scientific findings of its health benefits. I also read other
people’s reviews of this tea and some of them said that this tea “saved their voice”.
I am very sceptical about similar claims so I wanted to try this tea myself and see if
it is really such a miracle. Keep on watching to find out what I think about this tea. Hi, my name is Katarina from How 2 Improve Singing. Here is what happened. Yesterday,
I woke up with a tired and hoarse voice. I felt a slight discomfort in my throat. I had
a minor dry cough. My throat was sore and scratchy and it was difficult to talk. I definitely
could not sing. Then, I remembered that I bought special tea that was recommended to
me by another vocal coach. So, I made myself a cup of tea, more specifically Organic Throat Coat tea. It is advertised as tea for temporary relief of minor throat irritations by Traditional
Medicinals. I drank 6 cups of tea throughout the day as directed by the manufacturer. Before,
I tell you if my voice was saved or not, I want to talk about the medicinal ingredients
contained in this tea. If you’ve been following me for some time, you probably know that I
am big on research-based data. So, I did my own research and looked for studies that would
support health benefit claims. And this is what I found out:
The tea contains licorice root, wild cherry bark, bitter fennel fruit, marshmallow root
and slippery elm bark. These are herbal medicinals that have been used for centuries in Chinese,
Greek, and Egyptian traditional medicine. For example, licorice root has been used for
stomach inflammation and upper respiratory problems for centuries. Wild cherry bark has
been traditionally used for coughs and colds. Fennel is known to contain important dietary
nutrients, minerals and vitamins, therefore it’s been used to improve the immune response
to infections and reduce inflammation. Marshmallow root is commonly used to treat swelling of
the mucous membranes lining the respiratory tract. Slippery elm has been used to treat
inflammation in people with voice disorders. Well, the truth is that there is very limited
scientific evidence to support these claims and specific health benefits. Yes, there are
only a handful studies that would actually support these medicinal benefits but the results
are mixed. Sorry to disappoint you. But, let’s look at what we actually know
about these ingredients. Sometimes, there are no clinical studies to support health
benefit claims but we have other knowledge that can help us understand how certain herbals
work. For example, we know that slippery elm is FDA approved as a demulcent for sore throats.
What does it mean? The bark of the slippery elm tree produces slime when it comes in contact
with water. The slime acts as a mechanical barrier to protect body tissues, for example
the lining of the throat. Demulcents soothe and protect the underlying tissues. So, the
name “Throat Coat” is actually accurate. Some of the ingredients in this tea actually
coat the throat. That’s good, right? Marshmallow root has similar properties as
slippery elm and it has been approved in the EU for mouth and throat irritation and associated dry cough. It also acts as a demulcent creating a protective
layer in the throat. Licorice root and wild cherry bark are FDA
approved as food supplements but not for its medicinal use.
And we also know all of the nutrients, minerals and vitamins contained in fennel, such as
calcium, iron, potassium, vitamin A , B and C, which are important for general good health
and strong immune system. So, that was my research. Now, what do I think
about the tea and did it help me? First of all, I really liked the taste of
this tea. It’s sweet and it tastes like licorice. Another plus is that it’s caffeine-free.
Now, the health benefits. I have to admit that my voice got progressively better throughout
the day, I did not get rid of my cough completely but the tea helped in suppressing the cough
for the day. At the end of the day, my voice went back to “normal” and I did not feel
any irritation or scratchiness. So, I definitely felt better but I would not say that the tea
saved my voice. To be honest, I also took an afternoon nap and preserved my voice by
decreasing my voice use for that day. As a singer, it is always good to have an
arsenal of tools to make your voice feel good. Throat Coat Tea will be one of them for me.
I suggest that you try this tea for yourself and see if it works for you or not. I will
leave a link under the video. I bought my tea through Amazon, it was easy, fast and
convenient. Use the tea as directed by the manufacturer. For example, the manufacturer
says to consult your health care professional if you have diabetes, or are on hormonal therapies,
diuretics and some other therapies. Also, do not use this tea when pregnant or breastfeeding,
have kidney or liver problems, heart disease or high blood pressure. But overall, I give
this tea thumbs up. If you liked this review, give me thumbs up too. And don’t forget
