    • Provides Support for Sinus and Respiratory Challenges
    • Boosts Immune Response
    • Helps Soothe Sinus Tissue

    Optimal sinus health requires adequate mucus flow and clearance throughout the nasal cavities. The sinuses are hollow cavities branching from the nasal passages. While the nasal passages are often colonized with bacteria, the sinuses are typically sterile under healthy conditions. The sinuses and nasal passages are lined with soft tissue, called mucosa, that feature thin, hair-like projections called cilia. Specialized cells of the mucosal tissue, known as goblet cells, secrete a thin layer of mucus to absorb microbes and allergens, such as dust, dirt, pollen, and mold, inhaled through the nose. Working together, cilia "beat" to move mucus and waste out of the sinuses and nasal passages. Upper respiratory challenges may impair this process, known as mucociliary clearance, and contribute to fluid entrapment within the sinus cavities. Optimal Sinus contains a synergistic blend of nutrients and botanical ingredients to quickly boost immune response, decrease mucus build-up and increase mucociliary clearance during upper respiratory challenges.

    Optimal Sinus is a unique nutrient and botanical formulation providing effective support for upper respiratory challenges. Standardized botanical extracts and nutrients support sinus health by reducing the viscosity of mucus, clearing airway passages, and promoting nasal microbial and inflammatory balance.

    Suggested Use:

    3 capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.

     

  • Benefits
  • N-Acetyl Cysteine

    N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a powerful amino acid that decreases the thickness of mucus. NAC helps to dissolve mucus by breaking disulfide bonds that create mucus density, allowing for easier drainage of mucus. NAC is also a precursor to the body’s most powerful antioxidant, glutathione, which is an essential component of a healthy immune response.


    Turmeric Root (Complete Turmeric Matrix)

    Whole-root turmeric and its active components have been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. New research on turmeric shows the additional bioactives in turmeric have additional benefits and enhance bioavailability. The Complete Turmeric Matrix includes compounds from the entire turmeric root, all working together as nature intended to deliver better results. The Complete Turmeric Matrix has shown to deliver the benefits of the whole turmeric root that enables it to have a potent effect on the immune system and maintain normal inflammatory balance.


    Bromelain

    Bromelain is a plant enzyme naturally found in the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant. Bromelain exerts a synergistic effect when combined with NAC due to its proteolytic (protein digesting) actions. Bromelain has been found effective for thinning nasal secretions with the additional benefit of balancing inflammatory responses.


    Berberine Sulfate

    Berberine sulfate is a botanical extract found in the root and bark of various plants including Oregon grape root and barberry. Berberine extract has been shown to support immune responses by increasing blood flow to the spleen and activating immune cells, such as macrophages. Berberine maintains healthy sinus function by quieting localized inflammatory response through inhibition of activator protein 1 (AP-1) and thromboxane A2 from platelets.


    Chinese Licorice Root Extract

    Chinese licorice (Glycyrrhiza uralensis) and common licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) have been used in Eastern and Western cultures for thousands of years. The active components in licorice, glycyrrhizin and glycyrrhetinic acid, strengthen the immune response by inducing interferon activity, activating macrophages and augmenting natural killer cell activity. Glycyrrhizin exerts an inflammatory balancing response by inhibiting production of free radicals by neutrophils.


    Andrographis Leaf Extract

    Andrographis paniculata has been used in Eastern medicine for centuries. The immune boosting properties of andrographis have been researched extensively in clinical studies. In seven double-blind controlled trials, andrographis was found to be a safe and effective botanical for supporting upper respiratory tract health.


    Eleuthero Root Extract

    Eleuthero root extract has been shown to support the immune response, especially in combination with andrographis. Two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of the combination of Eleuthero and andrographis demonstrated the efficacy of this combination for respiratory challenges.


    Thyme Herb Extract

    Thyme has been traditionally used to soothe sinuses and loosen phlegm. Thymol, the active ingredient in thyme, has immune supporting properties and competes with immune system triggers commonly found in the sinuses and respiratory tract.
