In 1999 Dr. Lon Jones patented Xlear Nasal Spray. Xlear Nasal Spray contains Xylitol, purified water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract as a preservative. It does not contain any medication and is a 100% natural product. In addition it has no side effects, is safe for all ages, and non-habit forming.
Noses are nests
Our noses are a 'nest' where sinus problems begin. Cleaning the nose regularly helps remove infection causing bacteria as well as irritants and allergens that can trigger asthma. Anytime a person has a health issue that begins in the nose, cleaning it should be a regular part of their treatment, perhaps the most important part.
Xylitol is a natural sugar alcohol that keeps bacteria from adhering to mucus membranes by binding up the sites on the bacteria that attach to your cells. In older adults these harmful bacteria can be aspirated into the lungs leading to bronchitis and pneumonia or make asthma worse. Xylitol will not suppress viruses, but has been proven to markedly reduce the growth of Streptococcus Pneumonia bacteria.
Xlear Nasal Spray works in three ways:
- It decreases the ability of harmful bacteria to stick to your nasal membranes
- Xylitol concentration stimulates our own defensive cleansing of the nose
- Xylitol decreases the salt in the airway surface lining
