Like saline, Xlear is natural. However, it works with your body, so you can breathe better faster and longer.

Within 30-45 minutes of using saline, nasal tissue absorbs the salt, pulling in fluid during the process. This dries out your nasal passages and causes inflammation. The xylitol in Xlear is non-absorbable, allowing for the opposite effect to occur—fluid is pulled out of swollen tissues, which hydrates the mucosal layer and opens the airway.

Additionally, studies show that xylitol inhibits bacteria from sticking to tissue. If the invading organisms can’t adhere to tissue, they can’t affect you.

Xlear vs. OTC Nasal Sprays

Xlear works exactly the opposite of OTC nasal sprays to achieve the same goal. While OTC drugs slow down or stop the production of mucus, Xlear Nasal Spray thins the mucus so the body’s natural cleaning mechanisms can work more effectively.
