OREM, UT (PRWEB) February 22, 2006
In recognition of National Kids Ear, Nose, and Throat Health Month, Xlear, Inc. is actively promoting its xylitol-rich products as effective tools to help fight against pediatric ear infections, as well as nasal ailments from allergies to sinus infection. Xlear offers a variety of products that provide a number of unique health benefits. Xlear’s patented Xlear Nasal Wash and Spry gum contain pure xylitol, which has clinically proven to reduce the occurrence of inner ear and sinus infection, as well as fight tooth decay.
Now available in an improved pump-mist bottle, Xlear Nasal Wash is a non-addictive nasal spray designed to aid in the relief of irritation caused by pollutants, allergens and infections of the nasal passages. It is the only nasal wash that combines the unique properties of xylitol with the health-promoting practice of a saline nasal spray to help wash, hydrate moisturize the nasal passages. When certain harmful bacteria enter the body, they attach to the membranes of the nose and throat. Xlear Nasal Wash aids the body’s natural cleansing process by merely flushing away the pollutants and harmful bacteria.
“During February, as we focus on kids ear, nose, and throat health, Xlear is proud to be a leading manufacturer of xylitol products to help combat a growing problem with ear infections,” said Nathan Jones, president of Xlear, Inc. “Research indicates that nearly 62 percent of children in developed countries will suffer from the most common type of ear infection – otitis media – by the age of one. In the United States alone, this illness accounts for 25 million office visits annually with direct costs for treatment estimated at $3 billion. Fortunately, research also confirms that xylitol can help reduce the occurrence of inner ear and sinus infections. Our Xlear Nasal Wash provides a direct alternative to the over-prescribing of antibiotics commonly associated with ear infections. At Xlear, we are committed to producing high-quality products so children and adults alike can enjoy the health benefits of xylitol.”
Xlear Nasal Wash contains xylitol, purified water, saline and grapefruit seed as a preservative. Xlear Nasal Wash is safe for infants and small children, as well as pregnant mothers and the elderly.
“Spry sugar-free chewing gum sweetened with xylitol fights cavities and plaque by creating an unwelcome environment for bacteria,” added Jones. “Certain bacteria simply cannot stick to teeth in a xylitol-rich environment. Children can enjoy chewing delicious gum that helps to literally wipe away plaque-causing germs from their teeth. In addition, some research studies have shown that chewing xylitol gum can help reduce ear infections. A 1996 double blind, randomized trial in Finland found that xylitol ‘seems to have a preventive effect against otitis media.’ This is great news for children that suffer from ear infections. By using Xlear Nasal Wash and Spry gum, parents have an all natural arsenal against the occurrence of ear infections.”
Xlear Nasal Wash and Spry gum are sold online or through several thousand retailers across the United States and Canada.

About National Kids Ear, Nose, and Throat Health Month
Pediatric ear, nose, and throat disorders usually found in adults are the focus of the 2006 Kids “Kids E.N.T. Health,” a national public information campaign to inform the public about pediatric ear, nose, and throat disorders. This health observance, now in its fourth year, is sponsored by the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS), the national medical society for 12,000 ear, nose, and throat specialists. AAO-HNS believes that the proper diagnosis and treatment of pediatric ear, nose, and throat disorders offers the greatest possible gift to our children – the ability to discover and communicate with the world around them. Kids E.N.T. Health is an important contribution to this goal, shared by both physicians and parents alike.
