How can I help prevent a sore throat?
The germs that cause viral and bacterial infections are contagious. Therefore, the best prevention is to practice good hygiene. Follow these tips and teach your child to do the same:
- Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently, especially after using the toilet, before eating, and after sneezing or coughing.
- Avoid sharing food, drinking glasses or utensils.
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue and throw it away. When necessary, sneeze into your elbow.
- Use alcohol-based hand sanitizers as an alternative to hand-washing when soap and water aren’t available.
- Regularly clean telephones, TV remotes and computer keyboards with sanitizing cleanser. When you travel, clean phones and remotes in your hotel room.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Humidify your home if the air is dry.
Where does the seawater from Salinex® products come from?
Salinex® Daily Care nasal sprays contain 100% natural-source seawater from the Gullmar fjord on the west coast of Sweden. Water is collected 32 meters below sea level where the water is very fresh and clean.
After filtration, the undiluted seawater is desalinated, using the latest marine science technologies, preserving trace elements and mineral-rich benefits to an optimum isotonic level of 0.9%.
Using Bag-on-Valve technology, seawater is filled in a bag contained within the can. The final product is then sterilized after filling.
What does isotonic mean? What does hypertonic mean?
Isotonic solutions contain the same concentration of salt as the human body (0.9% Sodium Chloride). They are gentle enough even for the most sensitive noses.
Hypertonic solutions have a concentration of salt greater than what is found in the body.
Will the product remain sterile after opening?
Yes. All Salinex® Daily Care nasal seawater products use the Bag-on-valve technology by which seawater is filled in a bag contained within the can. The one-way valve prevents foreign contaminants such as mucus and foreign bodies from entering the container. This device allows repeated uses, until the expiration date of the product.
Do not use the same bottle for more than one person to avoid cross-contamination.
How do I know if I have a cold or flu?
Flu and colds are often confused because their symptoms are similar. Although both are respiratory infections, the common cold is not as serious as the flu. Both conditions are usually accompanied by cough, fatigue and sometimes nausea, vomiting and discomfort in the chest. However, sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion and sore throat are more typical to seasonal cold symptoms. If you have a fever, experience intense headaches and suffer from aches and pains, you probably have the flu and you should consult a doctor.
Note that in either case, the symptoms and their severity can vary depending on the person’s age and state of health.
Can Salinex ProTect® be given to children under six?
Yes, Salinex ProTect® can be given to children from the age of one. There are few products sold without a prescription for children under six years old so the availability of Salinex ProTect® is an interesting option for parents.
Will regular use of Salinex® or Salinex ProTect® harm my health, irritate my nasal passages or cause an addiction?
Salinex® Daily Care products are available in seawater and saline solutions. They are gentle, non-irritating and do not cause addiction. Salinex® products are suitable for pregnant women and do not contain any prohibited substances for use in drugs.
Salinex ProTect® is a sterile solution that contains a protective ingredient, iota carrageenan, a natural gelling agent derived from red seaweed. Iota carrageenan is one of the first effective substances found to combat the cold virus. An Austrian company carried out studies in 2010 showing that its nasal spray, containing carrageenan, was effective as a treatment against the common cold virus.*
