Nasaline is described as a medication free nasal cleaning system. The syringe is filled with salt water and used to flush impurities out of the nose. According to the official United States website, flushing of the nasal cavity can reduce cold and flu symptoms. Other conditions that may be improved include nasal congestion due to pregnancy and relief from congestion due to nose polyps. There is no clinical information supporting these claims.
A warning is written on the Squip website about using Nasaline with ear infections or ear problems. The nasal canal is linked to the ear canal and thus, toxins and waste could be flushed into the ear during rinsing. Users are warned not to use the Nasaline system if the nose is completely blocked or pressure felt in the ear.
Feeling good is important to staying focused on a diet and exercise plan. If Nasaline works to eliminate symptoms from common colds and flu, it could increase the number of days spent in the gym or sticking with a reduced calorie-eating plan. This is the only connection between Nasaline and dieting.
The Nasaline irrigator is reusable with proper cleaning. Cleaning may include sanitizing the irrigator with high heat or a sanitizing solution. Nasaline sells for $17.95 for a child size Nasaline and $19.95 for an adult size irrigator.
