Here’s why Colloidal Silver Nasal Spray is great for supporting optimal immune health

The human nose is important not just for smelling but also, especially, for breathing. In fact, experts say that our bodies are designed specifically to favor and benefit from breathing through our noses as opposed to breathing through our mouths. [1]

The reason why nasal breathing is better than mouth breathing is that your nasal cavity is well-equipped to filter the air that enters your body. This filtering process is crucial for your overall health because the air that you breathe carries plenty of foreign and potentially harmful particles, such as dust, chemical pollutants and allergens. Occasionally, it could also carry pathogens that can cause serious illness. [2]

To defend against these threats, a part of your body’s immune machinery lies directly behind your nose, protectively lining your nasal passages and sinuses. This machinery, which belongs to your mucosal immune system, is dedicated to filtering out and facilitating the removal of harmful substances that get in through your nose.

Because it’s one of your body’s first lines of defense, you need this machinery to work efficiently and optimally. The best way to support your mucosal immune system is by maintaining clean and healthy sinuses and nasal passages. 

Your nasal mucosal immune system and how it works 

Your mucosal immune system is said to be the largest component of your entire immune system. It is believed to have evolved in order to provide the body with a stronger defense against threats at their main entry points. [3]

Because these sites of entry are located all throughout your body, the different components of your mucosal immune system are anatomically remote and physiologically independent of each other. These components exist in the form of mucous membranes which can be found lining the inside of your intestines, urogenital tract, nasopharynx and other parts of your respiratory system. [4]

Mucous membranes help your nasal passages and sinuses filter the air that you breathe by producing mucus, a sticky, gelatinous material produced by cells in your mucus glands. The main function of mucus is to trap microbes, allergens and other foreign substances so they can’t spread through your body and make you sick. [5]

According to a study published in the journal Current Allergy and Asthma Reports, mucus contains a variety of immune-related molecules that assist in defending your airways from threats. [6] Mucus also lubricates your nasal passages, which not only helps keep your nose moist, but also allows your mucosal immune system to get rid of threats more effectively. [7]

Because mucus serves as a net that catches all the potentially harmful substances you inhale, mucus clearance is important for expelling threats from your body. The movement of mucus is facilitated by tiny hairs called cilia, which line your nasal mucous membranes. [8]

Like mucus, cilia are part of your nose’s air filtration system. The main function of these tiny hairs is to sweep your sinuses and nasal passages clean and help mucus travel through those cavities. [9] The lubrication provided by mucus is important for normal cilia function because cilia work more efficiently when your nasal passages are moistened by a thin film of mucus.

Once mucus passes through your sinuses, it drains into your nasal passages and down the back of your throat to be swallowed. [10] Mucus eventually ends up in your stomach, where the potentially harmful microbes it contains are neutralized by stomach acid. The dead cells and debris carried by mucus are also recycled in your stomach. [11]

In addition to the protective function of its secretion, mucus, your mucosal immune system also defends your nasal mucous membranes from threats by producing antibodies. Studies show that nasal secretions contain high concentrations of immunoglobulin A (IgA), an immune protein that contributes to your resistance against infections. [12]

Although IgA is incapable of killing microbial pathogens, it can prevent bacteria and toxins from attaching to epithelial cells – the cells that make up the tissue covering the surfaces of your blood vessels and organs. [13][14] IgA can also block the absorption of foreign substances and can defend against a wide variety of pathogens.

Because your sinuses and nasal passages play host to some components of your mucosal immune system, keeping them healthy is the best way to support your body’s natural defenses. A nasal spray can provide an easy means of doing that because it can deliver substances with beneficial properties directly to your nasal passages and sinuses.

Using a nasal spray is also one of the best and most efficient ways to keep the inside of your nose clean and healthy. And when formulated with potent natural ingredients that possess immune-supporting properties, a nasal spray can also help you maintain a healthy and optimally functioning nasal mucosal immune system. 

The best natural ingredients for supporting a healthy mucosal immune system* 

For thousands of years, humans have been using natural products like silver and essential oils to support optimal health and wellness. Silver, in particular, has been used for therapeutic purposes, especially for its ability to support natural healing. Silver was also once used to naturally cleanse wounds. [15][16]

Like silver, essential oils have a long history of use as natural remedies. The ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Indians were the first to use these aromatic oils to make ointments and to support the body’s natural healing abilities. Modern studies have also revealed that some of these oils contain beneficial components that can support optimal immune health. [17]

Because of their natural cleansing and immune-supporting properties, silver and essential oils are the ideal ingredients for an all-natural nasal spray that’s meant to not only help clean your sinuses and nasal passages, but also support the healthy functions of your nasal mucosal immune system.

Here are the best ingredients for an immune-supporting nasal spray and how they work: 

Colloidal silver

A colloid is a liquid mixture that evenly distributes certain particles within it. [18] When suspended in a solution, researchers believe that silver becomes even more useful because moisture triggers a chain reaction that induces silver particles to release silver ions. [19]

According to Australian researchers, the silver ions in colloidal silver are responsible for its natural cleansing and immune-supporting properties, as well as its ability to support the body’s natural ability to heal. [20]

Cell culture studies also show that colloidal silver is effective against a broad range of threats. [21] Its potency and protective benefits make colloidal silver an excellent ingredient to add in topical cleansing solutions and nasal sprays.

As a testament to colloidal silver’s safety and effectiveness, many medical grade products used today in clinical practice are made with silver. Some examples of patented silver-containing products include implants designed to controllably release silver ions, topical gels for combating dermal threats and wound dressings that exploit silver ions to accelerate natural healing. [22] 

Bergamot essential oil

Bergamot essential oil is one of the potent natural agents that work well with colloidal silver. Known for its distinctive citrusy scent, this essential oil is widely used in personal care products. [23] Bergamot essential oil contains a powerful plant chemical called camphene, which is known for its cooling effect when inhaled. Bergamot essential oil also possesses antioxidant properties that can support your nasal mucosal immune system. [24] 

Eucalyptus essential oil

Another potent oil that’s well-suited as an ingredient in nasal sprays is eucalyptus essential oil. Loved by many for its fresh, mint-like scent, eucalyptus essential oil is also known for providing respiratory support, which is why it is often used as a home remedy and in aromatherapy.

Inhaling eucalyptus essential oil is said to help with nasal congestion, thanks to the actions of its active component, cineole (eucalyptol). [25] A study published in the journal Molecules reported that cineole can help clean your sinuses and nasal passages and support the healthy functions of your mucous membranes. [26] 

Lemon essential oil

Extracted from the peels of fresh lemons, lemon essential oil is another common home remedy that can help you maintain healthy sinuses and nasal passages. [27] Lemon essential oil is also a versatile ingredient that you can use to make non-toxic cleaning and disinfecting solutions.

Like bergamot, this fragrant oil contains antioxidants that can support the optimal functions of your nasal mucosal immune system. As a bonus, lemon essential oil exerts a calming effect when inhaled and has been shown to support normal breathing. [28] 

Rosemary essential oil

Rosemary essential oil is a versatile oil with a woody scent and potent antioxidant properties. It is also considered one of the best natural remedies for unblocking clogged sinuses. [29]

According to a study published in the Journal of Functional Foods, rosemary essential oil contains an abundance of plant compounds that can support the healthy functions of your nasal mucosal immune system. [30] Rosemary essential oil also contains cineole, which is known to support healthy mucus production. [31] 

Tea tree essential oil

Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca oil, is a powerful oil that has been used by aboriginal people in Australia for centuries as a natural remedy to minor skin issues and to support nasal health. [32] Today, it is widely used as an ingredient in many skin care products. [33]

According to studies, tea tree oil has many beneficial properties that allow it to provide not just relief from nasal congestion, but also invaluable immune support. [34][35] 

Thyme essential oil

An oil with a long history of use in traditional medicine, thyme essential oil has natural cleansing and immune-supporting properties, which make it a great addition to an all-natural nasal spray formula. [36] Studies show that the biological activities of its active component, thymol, can also support optimal immune health. [37] 

Harness the beneficial properties of Colloidal silver and potent Essential Oils for optimal immune and nasal health 

According to studies, colloidal silver’s effectiveness against external threats depends on the size and shape of the silver particles suspended in it. The smaller the size of the silver particles, the greater their surface area and the efficiency of colloidal silver.
