When you suffer from allergies symptoms, finding a reliable source of relief makes a world of difference. Rinsing the sinus passages is one of the most effective ways to find relief. Since ancient times, people have used nasal washes to maintain upper respiratory health.
Every day our bodies are introduced to airborne irritants like dust, pollen, and bacteria. When your nose functions properly, it filters the air, preventing irritants from entering into the lungs. Mucus then carries the irritants to the back of the throat so they can be swallowed. However, if you are allergic to certain contaminants, your sensitive mucus membranes can become swollen and irritated. Naturally, the body responds by creating excess mucus. The surplus of mucus is thicker and stickier, causing increased congestion.
Doctors, ENT’s, and allergists recommend using a xylitol sinus rinse to alleviate allergy symptoms. But does it live up to the hype? In short, yes. Using a xylitol sinus rinse flushes out the contaminants and excess mucus blocking the nasal and sinus passageways. Traditionally, a nasal wash is performed with a neti pot—a device similar in shape and function of a teapot. The spout goes in one nostril as the person tilts her head. The saline solution flows through the sinuses and out the other nostril, cleansing the sinuses.
In the past years people have begun using and seem to prefer a sinus rinse bottle. Instead of a gravity-propelled system, the bottle uses positive pressure, which allows the user to squeeze the solution through the sinuses however weak or strong he or she likes.
To give you maximum comfort and optimal health, Xlear has formulated a nasal wash solution with xylitol. Xylitol is added to safely make the solution hypertonic, which allows it to pull the extra moisture out of swollen, irritated sinus tissues. The combination of xylitol and saline quickly alleviates congestion and cleanses the nasal passages. It gently washes away irritants and mucus, while moisturizing the sensitive sinus and nasal tissues. Xlear Sinus Rinse with Xylitol is an effective way to deliver the symptom relief you need.
