OREM, UT (PRWEB) August 6, 2004
For pregnant women suffering from colds, allergies or sinus infections, the words on many over-the-counter medications, Âdo not take this product without first consulting your healthcare providerÂ may seem like a wall between them and relief from the annoying congestion and stuffy head. Xlear Nasal Wash, an all-natural saline solution with xylitol, may provide some needed relief for pregnant women by helping to soothe nasal tissues, while washing away irritants and harmful bacteria that lead to upper respiratory congestion, discomfort and infection.
ÂHealthcare professionals recognize that many cold and allergy medications can compromise the safety of unborn babies,Â said Nathan Jones, president of Xlear, Inc. ÂThe March of Dimes warns that Âjust because something is available over the counter doesnÂt mean itÂs safe to take during pregnancy. Â Unfortunately, a womanÂs immune system is weakened during pregnancy, and she becomes more susceptible to viruses. The key to avoiding viruses is prevention, and in addition to washing their hands, avoiding contact with people that are ill, and avoiding touching their eyes, mouth or nose, pregnant women can also use Xlear Nasal Wash to help keep the nasal passage free from bacteria, pollutants and allergens.Â
Xlear Nasal Wash is a patented, non-addictive solution designed to enhance the bodyÂs natural cleansing process by flushing out bacteria, airborne allergens and pollutants that are inhaled through the nose. As the key ingredient in the nasal wash, xylitol assists the bodyÂs natural cleansing process, preventing bacteria from adhering to the nasal tissues while increasing the natural moisture flow process in the nasal passage.
ÂXlear Nasal Wash with xylitol has demonstrated that it can bring fast relief as it washes away bacteria and allergens from the nasal passage,Â Jones said. ÂXylitol is a proven antibacterial agent that helps reduce allergy symptoms, clear away sinus irritations, and restore health to the nasal and sinus tissues. Xlear can provide the relief that expecting mothers need without the drugs or chemicals that can harm an unborn baby.Â
Xylitol is a natural sugar derived from birch trees, common fruits and vegetables and has remarkable anti-bacterial qualities. When exposed to xylitol, bacteria lose their ability to adhere to sinus tissues, helping the body to more easily flush away the bacteria. Regular nasal cleansing using Xlear Nasal Wash can help hydrate the sinuses, wash out bacteria and allergy triggers, and help reduce secondary bacteria infections typically associated with allergy problems. Unlike prescription remedies, daily use of this saline/xylitol solution will never damage tissues, nor result in antibiotic resistance. Xylitol is approved in the United States as a food additive in unlimited quantity for foods with special dietary purposes and is recognized by the World Health Organization as a safe and effective food additive.
