I received product samples in exchange for an honest review, however my opinions are 100% my own.
Summer has officially started and with it comes allergy season. As much as we love the warm spring and summer months here in Florida, we dread the days of sneezing, and runny noses. My youngest son seems to suffer the most with seasonal allergies and I don’t like to give him medicines that make him feel sleepy during the day. I was looking for a natural solution to relieve his symptoms and was thrilled to try out Kids Xlear products in our home.
Xlear offers a full line of sinus care products designed to alleviate congestion due to allergies, cold/flu and sinusitis. The Xlear sinus care system cleans, moisturizes, and rinses away irritants, congestion, and harmful pollutants. These products can be used alone or with your cold/allergy medication. Xlear products are non-addicting, perfect for travel, and remain sterile throughout use. They are made from non-GMO, natural ingredients, including Xylitol.
What is Xylitol?
Pure xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. It is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables and produced in small amounts by the human body. It has the same sweetness as sugar (sucrose) but with 40% fewer calories and none of the negative tooth decay or insulin release effects on sugar. Xylitol also has a low glycemic index (7) and has little effect on blood sugar levels. Xylitol is recommended by dentist, medical doctors, periodontists, pediatricians, and many health organizations and health professionals worldwide as a sweetener for anyone concerned with dental health, upper respiratory health, and sugar consumption in general.
What sets Xlear Nasal Sprays (Xlear is pronounced “clear”) apart from the rest is that they contain the key ingredient of xylitol which has been show in clinical studies to be effective in relieving nasal discomfort as well as promoting good dental health. Using xylitol nasal spray allows us to have a hyper-osmotic solution which helps pull moisture toward it. This action keeps the nasal passages and sinuses moist and clean for a much longer time than saline alone. The Xlear Nasal Spray line are all natural products, we do not use chemical antihistamines or decongestants that can leave your airways and sinuses dry, as this may cause further infection. Xlear Nasal Spray is designed to help individuals live a healthier lifestyle while at the same time provide immediate relief.
Xlear Inc., recognized as one of the leading manufacturers of xylitol products, is committed to providing consumers with the natural health benefits of xylitol. Xlear Inc. prides themselves on manufacturing all natural products including the Xlear Nasal Sprays, which are an award-winning, patented, saline and xylitol solution safe for children as well as adults.
We used the Kids Xlear nasal spray in our home and have been very pleased. Xlear helped my son’s nasal congestion almost immediately and with no harmful side effects. He says it is easy to use and tastes great too. His nasal passages remain clear and moist all day long with this product. I can highly recommend it to anyone suffering from allergies, sinus pain and pressure and even cold/flu symptoms.
