Several factors can cause our throats to get sore and irritated as the weather changes. The natural body reflex to deal with this and clear the throat passageway is coughing. However, coughing can sometimes become painful and even a hindrance in daily chores, in addition to causing excessive dryness in the throat (Cough: Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment & Conditions.).
For years, many remedies have been prescribed and developed for curing cough and easing the associated throat pains. If we look back at the history of organic medicine, lemon and ginger seem to be the topping of the list of remedies. Historical evidence shows the use of these two ingredients for treating throat-related problems due to their highly beneficial properties (Bode et al., 2011; Klimek-szczykutowicz et al., 2020, 119.).
Medically, they have been proven to have excellent anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects that break down the phlegm and mucous building up in the throat and reduce irritation (Townsend et al., 2013, 157; Khan et al., 2016, 15).
Phytonutrients called bioactive substances are present in ginger and positively impact your health. Gingerols and shogaols are two of the most prominent bioactive substances found in ginger (Rampogu et al., 2018, p. 16). In addition, ginger is a constituent of several antimicrobial properties. On the other hand, Lemon is rich in vitamin C, which is the prime source of immunity boosters in the body and is also known for its healing effects (Mohanapriya et al., 2013, p. 1).
Together these can formulate a miraculous concoction of not only fighting off the symptoms but also curbing them from relapsing.
These ingredients are also used with other herbal components and many different forms to relieve the cough and its effects. From boiling down in tea to chewing raw, these have been ingested in various forms to help ease the symptoms.
To preserve the medicinal properties and make it accessible and easy to use, cough drops/lozenges have been a popular form of consuming these ingredients.

Joining the best of both worlds, Zinda Tilismath has developed Zint Ginger Lemon Lozenges that provide quick relief from sore throat, cough, and irritation with a soothing effect on the throat. It has various properties that make it unique and an efficient remedy for different sorts of cough and throat-related conditions.
Cough is a body reflex to clear away inflammation resulting from your body’s immune response to an infection or an irritant (Grabowski et al., 2013, p. 125). The pain during the cough and sore throat is due to itchiness and inflammation.
Ginger and lemon are one of the best ingredients to deal with inflammation. However, combining the extracts of these two ingredients gives our lozenges the exceptional ability to relieve your cough and irritated throat in no time. The bioactive compounds in ginger help block the pro-inflammatory proteins in the body that cause itchiness and inflammation (Mao et al., 2019). Lemon has Vitamin C that can break down mucous, removing the congestion in the throat (Fathi et al., 2019).
As mentioned earlier, one of the leading causes of cough is inflammation which microbes like bacteria or viruses can cause. The Zint lozenges take care of that with their excellent antimicrobial properties. Research shows that ginger may boost the immune system’s ability to eradicate infections (Ginger for Sore Throat: Benefits, Uses, and Recipe). This implies that ginger may decrease the frequency of sore throats, speed up symptom treatment, and shorten healing times. Vitamin C in lemon increases the production of white blood cells to fight infection and may reduce the duration of your cough, alleviating the symptoms.
Soothing and long-lasting effects:
Cough and sore throat can last for a long time, depending on the causative inflammation in the body. The Zint cough drops are slowly absorbed, gradually dissolving while enveloping your throat in its medicinal properties. This gives immediate relief and long-lasting soothing effects for a scratchy throat.
Cough can be a forerunner for many other diseases like asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, Etc. These diseases can cause harm to the body drastically due to decreased immunity. Both of the key ingredients in our lozenges, ginger, and lemon, are great immunity boosters (Mashhadi et al., 2013, p. 36; Miles et al., 2021, p. 71). Vitamin C and antioxidants help fight off the attacking disease by increasing immunity against them.
Since many factors, including allergens can cause coughs, and the last thing you would want to ingest during it is harmful chemicals. Keeping that in mind, the Zint Ginger Lemon Lozenges are made from 100% organic ingredients that heal your cough without causing any harmful side effects.
Hydration of throat:
Coughing for an extended period can cause scratchy throats. The whole oral passageway can become irritated and sore. The only relief is the hydration of the throat, which is provided by our cough drops owing to their great ingredients. Vitamin C is a fantastic source of hydration, and adding ginger adds to the medicinal properties and alleviates the itchy throat.
Relief from bad breath
Any oral disease or condition can cause your breath to stink, specifically if it is associated with inflammation (Bad Breath: Symptoms, Signs, Causes & Treatment.). Coughing is also included in that list, with mucous and phlegm resulting. This can make your breath terrible and give a strange taste to the throat. The Zint lozenges made with ginger and lemon essence will gradually dissolve in your mouth and relieve the unpleasant odor and taste. Ginger and lemon have solid antibacterial properties that neutralize the odors, and the effects also last longer and give a refreshing feeling in your mouth.
Coughs can be pretty bad and become chronic if the underlying conditions are not treated. However, the action of coughing for longer times can not only irritate your throat but also make your belly muscles sore. To put a pause on continuous coughing, cough drops are quite effective. The Zint ginger lemon lozenges from Zinda Tilismath deal with continuous coughing spells by providing relief and hydration to the throat without any side effects. It has long-lasting effects that will soothe your irritated and sore throat and remove throat congestion.
