I’ve just added xylitol nasal spray to my daily routine. Just like Vitamin D, selenium, and Vitamin B12, this is an ADDITION to the official precautions and not a substitute.
While there’s a xylitol nasal spray product called Xlear, I can make something similar for MUCH less money. I mix distilled water, salt, baking soda, xylitol, and a few drops of grapefruit seed extract.
I just spray this xylitol product into my nasal passages. The one thing to be cautious about is keeping the xylitol away from pets. (I don’t have pets, so that isn’t an issue for me. If you do have pets, keep the xylitol and the xylitol nasal spray in a safe place.)
Xylitol is said to have antimicrobial properties. Because the nose is the primary entry point for coronaviruses and other airborne viruses, it makes sense to try to stop them in the nasal passages. Given how much I’ve always hated being sick, using xylitol nasal spray will be part of my daily routine even after the pandemic is over.
