The health benefits of sea water have been recognised for thousands of years. Pure sea water is rich in different salts, minerals and trace elements which are important for overall health and wellbeing. Our body cells are physiologically close to sea water.
The sea water used in STÉRIMAR™ is collected in deep waters off the coast of Northern France. After collection it is filtered, diluted and microbiologically controlled to produce an aseptic (sterile) sea water solution, without preservatives.
The nose and the importance of nasal hygiene
The nose and the nasal mucosa have an important role to play in breathing. They moisten and warm inhaled air, preparing it for the body before it enters the lungs.
Cilia (tiny hairs) lining the mucosa filter inhaled air, preventing airborne particles such as dust, microbes, pollution and smoke from entering into the lungs. When the filtering action of the cilia is insufficient, the cells of the nasal mucosa produce mucus, a sticky liquid that traps impurities.
By conditioning and filtering the air, the nose acts as the body's first line of defence against external particles that are potentially dangerous to our body. If the nose is too dry and congested, it cannot function properly, increasing our vulnerability to colds, allergic rhinitis and sinusitis.
Nasal Hygiene for daily care
*Isotonic solution: a solution that contains the same concentration of salt as that of the body’s cells.
Relief from a blocked nose
* Hypertonic solution: a solution that contains a higher concentration of salt than that of the body’s cells, which allows for decongestion of blocked noses.
