Sugar-free throat lozenges: a smart choice for the health-conscious
HERBAL THROAT LOZENGES
In a world where sugar intake is at an all-time high, focus is increasingly being placed on the conscious reduction of ‘added sugar’ intake in pursuit of a healthier lifestyle. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recently published recommendations for individuals to reduce their daily intake of free sugars to less than 10 %, and even 15 % if possible.1
“We have solid evidence that keeping intake of free sugars to less than 10 % of total energy intake reduces the risk of becoming overweight, obesity and tooth decay,” says Dr Francesco Branca, Director of WHO’s Department of Nutrition for Health and Development.1
Much of the sugars consumed today are ‘hidden’ in processed foods, and making a concerted effort to reduce this intake, is bound to be rewarding in terms of pursuing a healthier lifestyle.
As winter is upon us, the advent of colds and even flu give rise to the need for symptomatic relief of irritating coughs and sore throats. Here, Prosils Herbal Throat Lozenges have not only proven effective; but all 4 flavours are now available sugar-free. Great-tasting New Prosils sugar-free lozenges are an excellent way of reducing that ‘hidden’ sugar intake, and are available in Honey Lemon, Orange, Menthol Eucalyptus and Strawberry flavours.
The Activo Team wholeheartedly supports the move to offering sugar-free over-the-counter remedies wherever possible, and is pleased to offer the first zero-sugar range of throat lozenges for those symptoms that we all experience some time during the year. New Prosils #sugarfree Herbal Throat Lozenges are available in pharmacies countrywide.
