I really love spring! Even though I live in California where the weather is warm all the time, you can still smell spring in the air when it arrives. But the downside to all that fresh, lovely air? All the allergens, pollutants, and toxins that come along with it. Seasonal allergies are such a nuisance…whether you experience one or all of the symptoms, they’re all pretty uncomfortable: runny/itchy nose, congestion, sneezing, watery/red eyes, itchy throat, ear congestion, post-nasal drip, and headaches. Me and my boys all suffer from allergies and congestion, so we’re constantly looking for solutions that will help us breathe easier.

An awesome solution I discovered years ago and use religiously is a nasal spray made by Xlear, which contains a natural substance called xylitol. Xylitol is a natural sweetener, but interestingly, it also has many other health benefits. One of the many uses of xylitol is in sinus care products. Xlear saline nasal spray is the only nasal spray on the market that contains xylitol, which moistens and soothes skin by pulling water to the skin surface. Another benefit is how xylitol interacts with bacteria – it’s non-fermentable, meaning bacteria can’t use it in their metabolic process and can’t thrive. Xylitol also as an anti-adhesive quality, which prevents bacteria from adhering to cell tissue. Because bacteria must attach to tissue in order to flourish, xylitol reduces their effect without harmful chemicals or drugs.

Putting natural ingredients in my body – and making sure my boys are doing the same – is very important to me. Obviously, being a fitness trainer and wellness coach, I put a lot of time and effort into my overall health, and I always want to use the safest, most effective solutions I can find. So I like to support companies like Xlear, who are creating natural products we can all feel good about. They make products for adults and kids alike, so it’s safe for the whole family to use.

It’s so cool that Xlear has found so many practical uses for xylitol. Besides the sinus care benefits, it was originally used as a natural alternative to sugar with its 1:1 sweetness ratio. It has virtually no effect on blood sugar and insulin levels, so it’s safe for those with diabetes, and for kids. It also has 40% fewer calories than sugar. Another well-researched use of xylitol is in oral health products. This natural sweetener’s ability to promote a healthier mouth is backed by many studies, and the products in Xlear’s Spry Dental Defense System include amounts that have been found to be most effective.

So, back to those spring allergies and your sinuses. When my boys and I started using Xlear’s nasal sprays and rinses, it was literally life-changing. Whether you have allergies or not, we all take in so many pollutants and toxins as we move through our day. Making a spray or rinse part of your daily health routine can go a long way in improving your overall sinus health, your breathing – and by extension, your sleep. In fact, my friends at Xlear always preach that cleaning your nasal passages is just as important as cleaning your hands, and you should flush out your nose throughout the day. A good tip is to use a nasal product with xylitol each time you wash your hands.

So hopefully all of this information has convinced you to try Xlear Sinus Care products to breathe a little easier. It works on your sinuses as well as your throat, keeping your whole upper respiratory system feeling more clear. It’s a gentle mist that clears nasal and sinus congestion that’s made from simple, natural ingredients. It’s also non-addictive, can be used with other medications, and most importantly, it’s safe for daily use.

So stop suffering from spring allergies and overall nasal congestion with natural products you can use daily to breathe easier.
