Benefits of Nasal Irrigation in Clearing Clogged Nose and Sinuses

The nose serves as an entrance to our airways. Germs, dust and dirt from the air that we breathe may lodge into the nasal passage and cause various health problems. Clearing away these irritants could be achieved most effectively by thoroughly washing the nasal passages and sinuses through large volume sinunasal irrigation.

Unlike nasal sprays or pumps, sinunasal irrigations deliver a large volume of solution under low positive pressure to gently wash the sinunasal passages. Sinunasal irrigation washes away and removes excess mucus, bacteria, viruses and irritants or allergens such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and smoke particles.

The following are the benefits of sinunasal irrigating solution:

• Clears and cleanses the sinunasal cavity
• Aids in the thinning of secretions, lessens pressure and pain caused by inflamed sinuses
• Helps moisturize the sinunasal mucous membranes
• Promotes the natural protective action of cilia to sweep away mucus, dirt or debris
• Provides relief of symptoms associated with cold, sinusitis, allergies, pre and postoperative care
• Optimizes patient’s recovery following nasal and sinus surgery

Solutions of sinunasal irrigation composed mainly of sodium chloride, potassium chloride and calcium lactate pentahydrate closely mimic the body’s own extracellular fluid that naturally bathe the cells of our body. The minerals of the solution provide relief of nasal and sinus congestion. Sinunasal irrigation is not associated with serious side effects and the solution does not sting as other concentrated solutions are prone to do.

For more information on sinunasal irrigation and if you have persisting or worsening symptoms, please consult your doctor.

Sodium Ascorbate: The Benefits of a Non-Acidic Vitamin C

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is a widely used water-soluble vitamin known to play a vital role as in a variety of body functions. It is one of the essential nutrients needed for building and strengthening body tissues owing to its action in the formation of a firm collagen, the cement-like substance that binds the body cells together to form strong tissues.  It is therefore important in the formation of healthy skin, blood vessel walls, cartilage, strong bones and teeth, as well as in promoting faster healing of wounds.

Being touted as the body’s “prime” immune system boosting nutrient, vitamin C is popularly known for its protective function against stress and certain diseases such as anemia, immune system deficiencies, asthma, viral infections and cardiovascular illnesses.

Vitamin C is also reported to promote cardiovascular health and helps lower blood cholesterol.

As a potent antioxidant, Vitamin C strengthens the immune system and increases body resistance to stress and infections.  Specifically, Vitamin C protects the body’s soldiers, the white blood cells, from the damaging effects of free radicals with its antioxidative properties. Vitamin C stimulates the white blood cells in clearing away infectious microbes. 

Though Vitamin C does not offer a cure for diseases such as the common cold, several studies suggest that vitamin C helps in alleviating the disturbing symptoms of cold and in shortening its duration.  This can reduce the risk for dreaded lung infections such as pneumonia.

Ascorbic acid and Sodium ascorbate, are they the same?

Many are quite reluctant in taking ascorbic acid or the so- called ordinary or “acidic” Vitamin C because of its potential effect in irritating the lining of the stomach of susceptible individuals. Thus, vitamin C is buffered or neutralized with the mineral sodium as the salt of vitamin C to become sodium ascorbate. Labelled as the non-acidic vitamin C, sodium ascorbate is in alkaline or buffered form, therefore it will cause less stomach irritation as compared with ascorbic acid.

Sodium ascorbate delivers the same benefits of vitamin C to the human body without causing the possible gastric irritating effects of ascorbic acid.

Since sodium ascorbate is less likely associated with hyperacidity, it is commonly recommended to individuals who experience gastrointestinal complaints such as heartburn, flatulence, nausea and diarrhea.

How safe is Vitamin C?

Despite its sodium content, Sodium ascorbate in recommended doses is safe for hypertensive individuals. Adults, especially those with cardiovascular disease, on a low-salt diet are advised to limit their total daily sodium intake to less than 1,500 mg/day.

Sodium ascorbate contains only 10% – 11% sodium.  Approximately, 1000 mg of sodium ascorbate, equivalent to two 500mg capsules, provides 889 mg of vitamin C and only 111 mg of sodium.  1-2 capsule(s) of 500 mg of sodium ascorbate taken daily will only give approximately 111 mg sodium.

Vitamin C is usually well tolerated and generally no adverse reactions are expected when it is taken at recommended doses. Vitamin C may cause diarrhea if taken in large amounts.

Vitamin C should be given with caution in patients with hyperoxaluria because large amounts may lead to the formation of calcium oxalate stones in the kidney. Urinary stone formers appear to be at higher risk for calculi if individuals take large doses of vitamin C daily. 

Large doses of vitamin C may also result in a false positive glucose test in the urine and may interfere with the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus.

Providing your Babies with Gentle Nasal Care using Nasal Sprays

Babies breathe almost exclusively through their nose on their first few months from birth. By breathing through their nose, babies can feed, swallow and breathe at the same time. It is therefore important that the babies’ nasal airways are kept clean and clear of mucus, allergens and other irritants.

Since babies have tiny nasal passages, even the smallest amount of mucus may cause nasal congestion and may interfere with their breathing thus disrupting their feeding and sleeping.

The babies’ nose may be blocked by thick and excess mucus due to hay fever, allergies, cold or viral infection. One effective and safe way to clear this mucus is with nasal sprays containing isotonic saline solution that mimic the body’s own natural fluids. Saline nasal sprays also help activate the natural cleansing mechanisms of the nasal passages to clear away mucus and other irritants.

Nasal saline spray for babies may be used as often as needed to provide the following benefits:

  • Cleans and clears away the excess mucus helping increase air flow and make babies breathe easier.
  • Serves as a clogged nose remedy. Clear and unclogged nose eases breathing and help babies sleep better.
  • Babies get to feed easier bringing convenience to the mothers.
  • Washing away mucus plugs which could be breeding areas for germs helps in preventing infection.
  • Provides a handy means of removing snot from the baby’s nose. This is safer than using a nasal applicator or a suction bulb which may be difficult to administer especially on an upset, jiggly baby.

There are available sterile, preservative-free nasal saline sprays specifically designed for babies’ delicate nose that gently deliver the solution in gentle mist and can be administered quickly at any angle, even upside down.  These nasal saline sprays are handy and easy to carry anywhere especially during travel.

For best advice, a doctor should be consulted.
