Why is BETADINE® Mouthwash & Gargle better for our sore throats than salt water?8

There is no clear scientific evidence that salt water has germ-killing action.

BETADINE® Mouthwash & Gargle has shown its germ-killing activity against the viruses and bacteria that can cause sore throats. With a 30 seconds gargle, 4 times a day, BETADINE® Mouthwash & Gargle can kill germs and reduce the chances of contracting flu.1
