What is a runny nose?
A runny nose is especially annoying. Everyone has had to deal with it. The nose keeps dripping continuously and therefore you have to blow your nose every time. There is a layer of mucous membranes on the inside of the nose and these are covered with fine hairs. The hairs filter the air we breathe. The nasal mucous membranes always produce a little moisture, but are they inflamed or irritated? Then the mucous membrane produces more moisture than usual. This moisture, a light and cloudy discharge, then flows out of the nose. With a runny nose as a result.
How does a runny nose develop?
A runny nose can be caused by many different causes. Here we give a list of causes that you can think about.
- Common cold: thin, snotty nose and / or sneezing
- Allergy: for example due to pets, dust mites or food allergies
- Hypersensitivity to dust: nasal mucous membranes are extra sensitive to dust in the air.
- Temperature change: from warm to cold air.
- Exercise and sport: exertion makes the nose work harder.
- Old age: the mucous membranes become more porous and release more moisture into the nose.
Whatever the cause, the nose is irritated. This causes nasal mucous membranes to swell and more moisture is produced. This moisture runs out of the nose; this creates a runny nose.
Chronic runny nose
There are also people who suffer from a chronic runny nose (vasomotor rhinitis). There is then a disturbance in the nasal mucous membranes. This is often due to hypersensitivity to a certain substance, such as an allergy or random dust particles in the air.
Many elderly people can also suffer from a runny nose. When we get older, certain processes in the body work less well. For example, the vascular tension of the blood vessels in the nose can be reduced, causing it to become more irritated. The blood vessels can also become a little porous. This releases moisture which drips from the nose. This can lead to a chronic runny nose.
What to do about a runny nose?
The small, short-lived runny noses quickly resolve on their own. Like when you stop exercising or go back to the heat. After half an hour the complaints usually disappear.
But what if it lasts longer? A runny nose is very annoying and everyone wants to get rid of it as quickly as possible. We give a few tips:
- Blow your nose gently if you have a runny nose. This releases the bacteria and allows you to breathe properly through the nose again.
- Do not blow the nose too often
- Muzzle with a soft handkerchief to avoid irritation to the nose
- In particular, drink plenty of liquids such as water, herbal tea or fruit juice. This helps to get rid of excess moisture from the nose.
- Skip caffeinated drinks. This can cause the nose to become extra blocked.
Did you know that thousands of people have already encountered similar problems before you. And did you know that they have been helped by the use of Capsinol.
Capsinol restores the nasal mucosa and allows you to breathe freely again.
What is Capsinol
Capsinol original formula is a 100% natural nasal spray that repairs your nasal mucosa and helps your nose to prevent bacterial infections. The two main substances are Capsaicin and Xylitol.
There are three variants, these differ in strength and amount of capsaicin
Why does it work
When you use Capsinol for the first time, you will experience a stinging sensation in your nose. This is due to the capsaicin that stimulates the nasal mucosa.
The nose will open within minutes of using it. Because the nasal mucosa is strongly stimulated, it will recover in a natural way. You will notice that you need less and less nasal spray to keep an open nose.
After using it a few times you will get used to the tingling sensation caused by the capsaicin and you will actually like it.
The Xylitol protects your nose from outside bacterial hazards. Just like you know from xylitol in chewing gum that protects you against bacteria that eventually causes caries. So xylitol protects you from bacteria. This reduces the risk of ear infections and inflammation in the sinuses.
The chance of ear infections increases the more harmful bacteria live in the nose, as the ear canals are connected to the nose and oral cavity. Research has shown that Xylitol can reduce the risk and severity of ear infections by 40%.
A healthier nasal passage also improves the health of the sinuses and sinuses. In other words, Xylitol helps keep the sinuses clear and reduces the chance of yeast infections (Candida Albicans). Because of this effect, people with chronic sinus infections are nowadays recommended to use a nasal spray based on Xylitol.
