Breathe Again is a simple and safe hypertonic saline nasal spray. Clinically tested in France, this 100% natural solution combines the benefits of pure seawater and the drying effect of a hypertonic solution. Harvested from Europe's purest tidal seawater off the coast of Saint Malo, France, the superior and unique nasal spray can be used for allergy prevention, nasal congestion, sinus problems and nasal hygiene.
With its minerals and trace elements, this natural seawater closely mimics the body's cell chemistry. By natural osmosis, this hypertonic solution draws congestion from sinuses, as it cleans, clears and rejuvenates nasal passages, helping you to comfortably Breathe Again.
Hypertonic Saline Nasal Spray
Hypertonic or Isotonic Nasal Spray?
Both isotonic and hypertonic saline solutions wash germs, allergens, and other pollutants out of the sinuses. However, some customers find that hypertonic solutions work better for them, while others experience uncomfortable burning or stinging sensations when they use hypertonic solutions. What's the difference, and how can a saline sinus rinse help your allergies or cold?
Simply put, saline is salt water. When it comes to a saline rinse, there are three basic types - isotonic, hypertonic, and hypotonic. "Iso" means "equal", "hyper" means "high", and "hypo" means "low". With regard to saline, these prefixes refer to the salinity or amount of salt in the solution.
WHAT IS A HYPERTONIC NASAL SPRAY?
A hypertonic nasal spray is great for drying out a runny nose, or for a nose that seems to be both runny and stuff at the same time. A hypertonic saline nasal spray has a higher concentration of salt. While some physicians recommend hypertonic solutions because a higher concentration of salt may draw fluid and mucus out more effectively, some people may experience a burning sensation when they use hypertonic solutions. If your sinus membranes are badly inflamed or sensitive, where the simple sensation of touch could be enough to cause pain, you may want to opt for an isotonic solution (most over the counter sprays are isotonic).
otonic saline solutions have a lower concentration of salt. "Iso" means equal, and an isotonic solution should be perfectly balanced for your body.
WHAT IS AN ISOTONIC SALINE NASAL RINSE?
An isotonic saline nasal spray is great for a dry, stuffy nose. And if your nose is very dry, you may find that a hypertonic solution dries it out even more, while an isotonic solution will restore moisture to sinus passages. Due to a lower salt content, isotonic solutions do not draw out excess moisture and mucus like hypertonic solutions do. They make for an excellent way to moisturize and rinse away allergens.
It's important to keep in mind that the difference between a isotonic and hypertonic solution is relatively small. It does not take a great deal of salt to make a significant impact in how the rinse performs and feels when you use it. This is important to keep in mind, particularly if you mix your own saline sinus solution.
