The nasal mucosa is made of 3 layers of cells.
The respiratory tract’s epithelial cells have small extensions, similar to little hairs, called cilia, and it is with their help that the excessive mucus gets cleaned. Sometimes however, when we catch a cold or when we are exposed to germs and allergens, the body needs a little help cleaning the excessive mucus.
Sterimar’s unique microdiffusion technique consists of applying a very delicate sea-water based spray on the nasal mucosa. The droplets are extremely fine thus staying longer in contact with the mucosa. This prolonged contact improves the penetration of trace elements and helps remove excessive mucus and allergens which endanger the health of your nose.
This nasal solution works by drawing the liquid from the mucosa back into the nasal cavity where it can be easily cleansed by simply blowing your nose. Many patients believe that any nasal congestion is caused by a runny or a stuffy nose. In fact, the congestion is a result of the inflammation caused by irritants or alergens, which makes the nasal tissues swollen, reducing the size of the nostrils. Therefore, breathing through your nose becomes very tricky. Usually, when we catch a cold or when we have flu symptoms, the nasal congestions is also accompanied by a runny nose which makes breathing through the nose virtually impossible.
Sterimar Hypertonic Nasal Spray for Adults is a hypertonic solution. The hypertonic solution has a slightly higher salt concentration than is normally found in the human body. This aspect favors osmosis,the natural process through which one or more substances move through a semi-permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides. Osmosis helps remove the excess fluid filled with germs in the nasal mucosa, aiming to provide natural relief in the case of nasal congestion and prompt natural breathing through the nose. In addition, this product is enriched with Copper and this trace element enhances the solution’s properties, helping your body fight against irritants and infections. The whole process is quick, gentle and painless.
