Use alkalol as a nasal wash and mucus solvent to help clear blocked nasal passages and provide drug-free relief from nasal congestion and irritation caused by sinusitis, allergies, head colds and post-nasal drip.

 

When mucus builds and clogs nasal and sinus passages, it can be hard to breathe. Alkalol Nasal Wash – the only saline rinse with a proprietary blend of natural extracts and essential oils – provides invigorating relief from nasal congestion and sinus pressure caused by colds, flu, and allergies. Alkalol is a safe, fast-acting, and refreshingly-strong solution that leaves your sinuses feeling clean and revitalized.

 

Real Relief You Can Feel
With its select blend of natural extracts and essential oils, Alkalol Nasal Wash provides an invigorating sinus rinsing experience regular saline solutions can’t match. Alkalol’s unique ingredients, like wintergreen, spearmint, and cinnamon, help dissolve mucus, reduce nasal congestion and sinus swelling to help you breath better quicker.

 

Doctor Recommended for Over 100 Years
Developed in 1896 by James P. Whitters, a Massachusetts pharmacist, Alkalol has been trusted by doctors and allergists for over a century to provide fast, natural relief from nasal congestion and sinus symptoms caused by colds, flu, and allergies. Whitters handpicked a blend of salts, natural extracts, and essential oils to create a unique nasal rinse that delivers benefits beyond what standard saline solutions provide.

 

How to Use Alkalol
Alkalol Nasal Wash is a premixed solution ready to use right out of the box with the included Alkalol Nasal Wash Cup. The unique passive-flow irrigation system provides a time-honored and effective way to relieve nasal and sinus symptoms. Alkalol can be used full strength or mixed with saline or distilled or sterilized water to gently clear the nasal passages of mucus and allergens, such as dust and pollen. We recommend starting with a mild dose and adjusting according to preference and thickness of mucus. Detailed instructions are provided inside each box of Alkalol Nasal Wash.

 

Who Benefits from Sinus Rinsing?
Nasal saline irrigation has long been recommended by ear, nose, and throat specialists and allergists to relieve sinus symptoms resulting from nasal congestion, runny noses, colds and flu, allergies, sinusitis, and rhinitis without drug interactions or drug side effects. Recent studies show that regular sinus rinse use may reduce the duration and frequency of cold, flu, and allergy symptoms.

Your Nasal Passages Are Important. Here’s How to Take Care of Them.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Neglecting nasal health can have uncomfortable consequences. Respiratory infections affect millions of Americans every year, and millions more suffer from nasal allergies. But if you know your nose—and how to take care of it—you can minimize respiratory symptoms and breathe easy.

Woman Blowing Nose into Tissue to Represent Concept of Caring for Nasal Passages

Nasal passages: structure and function

Good nasal health starts with your nasal passages, which are more complex than you might think. Inside your nose, a combination of cartilage and bone called the septum separates your two nostrils. Vibrissae, the hairs that line your nostrils, trap dirt, germs and other particles as air passes into the nasal cavity, The nasal cavity has two major regions: respiratory and olfactory. The respiratory region is the largest and contains a complex network of blood vessels warms and humidifies air before it travels to your lungs. Goblet cells secrete mucus add more humidity and trap particles that make it past the vestibule. Small hairs called cilia sweep the particles away to prevent them from moving down the respiratory tract. The olfactory region is located at the top of the nasal cavity and is lined with cells called the olfactory epithelium. Neurons within the epithelium contain receptors that bind with scent molecules in the air. The neurons send signals to the brain that register as smells. Nasal and facial bones make up the nasal cavity’s lateral wall. The lateral wall contains three structures of tissue and bone called turbinates with spaces known as meatus underneath. This complex network increases air temperature, raises moisture levels and affects the sound of your voice. Your sinuses and tear ducts also drain into this area, which is why your nose runs when you cry or have a respiratory infection.

Dysfunctions and diseases of the nasal cavity

Many conditions can irritate your nasal passages and nasal cavity:
  • Nosebleeds are commonly caused by dry air, nose picking or excessive nose blowing. Clotting disorders and medications like aspirin or anti-clotting drugs can also give you a bloody nose.
  • Infections can cause inflammation in your nasal passages. Known as rhinitis, this inflammation can spread to your sinuses and become sinusitis—a sinus infection. Symptoms include nasal stuffiness, nasal drainage, and facial pain.
  • Allergies can cause inflammation, sneezing and a runny nose when your immune system reacts to particles trapped in the nasal vestibule or cavity.
  • Polyps can form when you experience ongoing inflammation from infection, allergies or immune disorders. They may go away on their own or require surgery to remove. If polyps grow too large, they can block sinus drainage and increase your risk of sinus infections.
  • Smell disorders can occur if medications, injuries, toxins or infections damage your olfactory receptor cells. You may also experience a diminished sense of smell if you suffer from allergies or respiratory infections.

How to keep your nasal passages healthy

Since your nasal passages are the gateway to the rest of your respiratory tract, keeping them healthy can reduce your risk of disease or minimize symptoms if you do get sick. Try these tips to improve nasal health and prevent symptoms.

To moisturize and prevent nosebleeds:

  • Use a saline spray or spray gel daily
  • Use a humidifier to increase indoor humidity to between 40% and 60%
  • Drink water throughout the day, and avoid dehydrating beverages like soda, coffee and alcohol
  • Pour boiled water into a bowl, drape a towel over your head, and breathe in the vapor. Some research suggests that adding peppermint, eucalyptus or lavender essential oils to the water may ease inflammation.

To reduce allergy symptoms:

  • Use a saline spray, nasal rinse, or neti pot to flush particles and excess mucus from your nose
  • Clean your house regularly to remove dust, dirt and pet hair
  • Use an air purifier to filter out allergens
  • Try a reishi mushroom supplement

To minimize inflammation:

  • Remove ultra-processed and high-sugar foods from your diet
  • Cut out dairy if it gives you respiratory symptoms
  • Eat anti-inflammatory foods like fruits, vegetables and whole grains
  • Quit smoking if you smoke
  • Try bromelain or quercetin supplements to relieve symptoms of sinusitis or allergies
Many of these activities are easy to incorporate into your daily routine. Your nose will thank you for making nasal health a habit!
