Hypertonic solutions are often associated with the simultaneous administration of hyaluronic acid, both to increase patient compliance, making the treatment more tolerable, and to aid the anti-edema and anti-inflammatory action. In literature this association has proved useful in the treatment of acute infections (such as colds and flu), chronic sinusitis and seasonal allergic rhinitis. In addition to the already known anti-inflammatory, mucoregulatory, anti-edema and restructuring actions, hyaluronic acid performs a bacteriostatic action which, by creating a protective patina in the mucosa, prevents the penetration of pathogenic agents and reduces the proliferation of those already existing.
THIME DISTILLED WATER
Thyme distilled water is characterized by antioxidant, antibacterial and antifungal properties that help the immune system to fight pathogenic infections. Moreover, thanks to its balsamic and fluidifying action, it contributes to the general well-being of the nose.
HYPERTONIC SALINE SOLUTION
Hypertonic solutions represent a valid aid for the prevention of bacterial colonization in the nasopharyngeal tract and for the treatment of respiratory infections. Through a mechanism known as “osmotic hydration”, these solutions are natural decongestants as they favor the removal of mucus, a mechanical cleaning action of the nasal cavities and a reduction of edema of the mucosa.
