From a satisfied customer: "I call Throat ReLeaf 'Wonder Spray.' I have chronic sinus and allergy issues. I usually have a cold or upper respiratory infection that starts in late November, and stays all winter. I tried Throat ReLeaf, and in one day, with 2 sprays, I was completely drained and relieved of congestion. I have stayed clear all winter. The biggest things for me:
- No chemicals
- The money I am saving
- I didn't know I could feel this good until I was relieved of poor health - that is the greatest gift!! - - Brynn S.
