XLEAR Nasal Wash 45ml
Xylitol appears to be an effective treatment against many infectious agents. This product is used as a nasal wash in the treatment of cold symptoms, ear infections, and allergies. It aids in the relief of nasal irritation caused by pollutants, allergens, and infections of the nasal passages.
The commercially available product is called XLEAR. I have used xylitol nasal spray and I can tell you it works. Unlike nasal products that contain drugs, XLEAR will not damage tissues, nor result in antibiotic resistance. Xylitol is a sugar, but it's different from most sugars you may be familiar with. It contains only 5 carbon atoms per molecule (instead of the usual 6). This molecular difference provides xylitol with remarkable antibacterial properties. When exposed to this molecule bacteria lose their ability to adhere to sinus tissues, allowing the body to more easily clear them away.
The manufacturer tells us it is safe for infants and is non-habit forming. Xylitol Nasal Wash is an all natural, drug free, saline and xylitol spray that washes your nose. It aids in the relief of nasal irritation caused by pollutants, allergens, and bacterial infections of the nasal passages.
Directions: With head in upright position, insert nozzle in nostril and squeeze container quickly 2 to 3 times; inhale deeply to pull the spray to the back of the nose. Do this for each nostril. For those unable to inhale or when the nose is completely blocked, lay down after spraying for best results. Safe enough for infants.
Ingredients: Purified Water, Xylitol and Saline
