A stuffy nose; almost everyone has it from time to time. The one now and then, the other’s nose stays (chronically) closed. A blocked nose is caused by the swelling of the mucous membranes in the nose. In addition, the mucous membranes make extra mucus, which quickly clogs the nose.
Get rid of a blocked nose
The reason that the mucous membranes swell can be due to various causes. Think of a cold (virus). Because this is the most common reason, people often say “I have a cold” when the nose is full of mucus. However, there are many more causes that can cause a blocked nose, such as allergy, hay fever and hypersensitivity of the mucous membranes.
Colds are a virus that is actively visible, especially in the autumn and winter months. Such a cold often goes away on its own and the nose is released again.
For a quick solution, a nasal spray based on xylometazoline is often chosen. The nasal spray ensures that the swelling of the mucous membranes decreases. Usually one can quickly breathe freely through the nose again. When this nasal spray is not used for more than 5-7 days, it is a great solution. If the cold lasts longer or you prefer to use a natural solution, choose Capsinol.
If the cold lasts longer than 7 days, stop the xylometazoline nasal spray. When such a nasal spray is used for more than 7 days, the nose may become dependent on it. Capsinol nasal spray offers a good alternative. Capsinol doesn’t just fight symptoms (which xylometazoline does). Its effect is based on the salt and xylitol that shrink the mucous membrane. All products contain ‘pepper’ (Capsicum annuum tincture) which has a tingling effect in the nose. This builds up the resistance of the nose for a longer period of time.
Note: It may take longer before the effect is noticeable (up to 2 weeks). It also sometimes happens that the nose first closes a little more. Really give Capsinol some time.
Allergy (hay fever)
Many people suffer from allergies, such as animal hair, house mites and pollen. In these cases, Capsinol does not solve the problem of the allergy itself. It can reduce the additional complaints, such as (temporarily) clearing the stuffy nose.
For hay fever, Capsinol Mild Formula is the best choice. This formula contains feverfew (motherwort) to support the nasal mucosa.
Hypersensitive mucous membranes (idiopathic rhinitis)
In addition to the allergic nose complaints, there may also be hypersensitivity of the mucous membranes for no apparent cause. The nose reacts directly to dust from the outside without there being an allergy. Due to this hypersensitivity, people often have chronic nasal complaints, such as a blocked or runny nose. This can also spread to the cavities. This can cause a sinus infection or sinus infection.
Especially with this hypersensitivity (called ‘idiopathic rhinitis’ in medical terms), Capsinol nasal spray can really offer a solution. This makes the nose less sensitive to dust and will therefore not quickly become blocked.
When Capsinol works well, you no longer need a nasal spray for a longer period of time. A chronic stuffy nose is a thing of the past. This effect can often last up to a year (and even longer).
How fast and how long it works varies greatly per person / nose. For one, Capsinol really offers a long-lasting solution, the other continues to use it regularly. We cannot estimate this in advance; it really depends on the nose and less on the type of complaints. In any case, it is important to give Capsinol a little longer the chance. It can take up to 2 weeks before real results are noticeable.
We are pleased that Capsinol has already been able to help many people. People who have often searched in vain for a solution for years and who have now finally found it with the use of Capsinol.
