prevent coronavirus (COVID-19)

Independent studies increasingly suggest that rinsing your nose with extra-strength nasal saline helps against corona (COVID-19). It reduces the chance of infection through your nose. It shortens the duration of infection and symptoms. The extra strong rinse salt seems to have an antiviral effect.

(2020-07) Research is currently being conducted on the use of nasal saline solutions (rinsing your nose) in the context of the corona pandemic. Research on SARS-CoV-2 (the medical name for Corona or COVID-19) shows that the infection occurs primarily in the nose, specifically in the nasal mucosa. This is similar to other viral infections such as influenza.

The nasal mucosa plays an important role in the human immune system. It is the first defense against inhaled viruses, bacteria and aerosols, among other things. The mucus layer on the mucosa traps inhaled particles, which are then removed by the cilia. A nasal rinse with a saline solution acts on the mucus. This mucus is flushed away, including the particles. In addition, nasal saline solution reduces local inflammation and helps keep the nasal mucosa moist to keep it functioning properly. Ordinary saline helps, but research shows that an extra-strength nasal saline rinse works even better. It has a stronger effect, which better flushes out mucus with virus and strengthens the resistance of the nasal mucosa. It also appears that you suffer less from a runny nose. The research shows that rinsing the nose against corona is recommended. Additional research still needs to shed more light on the effectiveness of nasal rinsing to prevent corona.

Because coronavirus (COVID-19) is highly contagious, it is important to wash your hands before taking your bottle to rinse. It is also important that no one else touches your bottle and that you disinfect it properly. Read the English article here.

(2020-06) A randomized, controlled trial in the United Kingdom has found that rinsing your nose with a nasal wash and extra-strength saline solution causes you to be sick with corona virus for less time! The study concluded that rinsing your nose is a potentially safe, effective and scalable intervention in people with corona (COVID19 / SARS-CoV-2). Read the English article here.

(2020-04) According to international research, Covid-19 infection generally begins when the virus enters the body through ACE2 receptors in the nose (the receptors, which the virus is known to target, are abundant there) . Grab your NeilMed Nederland nasal rinse and start rinsing your nose!

Several studies have previously shown that rinsing your nose with a nasal douche helps against viruses, including the common coronavirus (flu). Currently, we are dealing with a new coronavirus (COVID-19, also called SCARS-CoV-2 in medical science). Therefore, we are investigating whether nasal cleansing also has an effect on the new coronavirus and whether you can prevent corona (COVID-19). Initial results are promising and seem to confirm this. Doctors therefore recommend rinsing your nose. Read the article.
