Nasal Spray for COVID-19 Recovery and Prevention.

An Important New Covid-19 Study And a Specific Nasal Spray For Adjunctive Treatment of Covid-19 to Speed Recovery!

Previously on EC, I have mentioned using a nasal spray called "XLEAR" as an excellent nasal spray to help treat sinus infections and nasal issues in general. This product contains xylitol and grapefruit seed extract, which can kill certain bacteria, viruses, and both have biofilm busting qualities, all contributing to this nasal spray's effectiveness.

This new study also suggests that XLEAR may help treat an existing Covid-19 infection as an adjunctive treatment that shows potential to speed the recovery process, which could be useful and especially if you have other health issues which may be exacerbated by Covid-19 as lessening the duration of Covid-19 infection may help reduce the potential for worsening of the existing health condition.

Just thinking aloud here, but I wonder if using Xlear before going into a crowded area might be useful??? I have used colloidal silver in this way previously, but Xlear is easier for most people to get and is reasonably priced plus you know what you are getting. When I use the colloidal silver, I just put it in a two-ounce spray bottle and spray generously into each nostril while inhaling, and I suspect I could do similarly with the Xlear product.

Here is a link to the product:

Xlear spray is also available at CVS and most pharmacies. You want the product that contains both "grapefruit seed extract and xylitol."

The study mentions that Xlear has shown antibacterial and antiviral properties, which potentially include SARS CoV-2. In Covid-19 patients, Xlear was reported to result in rapid clinical improvement and shorten time to negativization on repeat intranasal swab test via PCR.

The clinical reports also lists how the nasal spray was implemented and the frequency of use. This study is very interesting and suggests a new and novel use for Xlear as an effective adjunctive treatment for Covid-19.

I am surprised that you have not mentioned the Xlear nasal spray in your natural solutions to covid19. Been on the market for decades in the natural retailers, have known it blocks bacterial adhesion of common pathogens and now they have studies done in various labs showing it blocks and destroys the sars-cov-2 virus. Also human clinical trials that are being done and showing amazing results. www.xlear.com/science

Nathan,

I wrote about Xlear Nasal Spray here on EC in early December of last year. That and melatonin are two major components of my anti-Covid-19 protocol. Here is a link to that post:

It is one of the 106 Covid-19 remedies listed on EC.

Previously on EC, I have mentioned the use of a nasal spray called "XLEAR" to help treat sinus infections and nasal issues. Studies now suggest it may be helpful in preventing COVID. See the top of this page for more information.

So I have stocked up on Xlear nasal spray for family and friends to help fight Covid-19 as outlined in the new study I posted about. I even sent some to out of state friends who are infected with Covid-19 and have other preexisting health conditions to try and quicken their recoveries and to try and lessen any impact on their preexisting health conditions. I think the combination of high dose melatonin, Xlear nasal spray which contains both grapefruit seed extract and xylitol may be great for possibly controlling the virus quickly, lessening the effects and helping to speed the recovery process!

Hi Art:

Your article about Xclear and Grapefruit Seed Extract is very interesting. Your "link" to the extract on Amazon seems to be just for the Xclear - and doesn't contain Grapefruit Seed Extract. So, do you recommend purchasing the spray and adding the extract to it? If so, How much do you add?

Thanks. Lexie

Hi Lexie,

You will find that there is no need to add "anything" to the Xlear Nasal Spray as the Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) is already in it! Just go back to the Amazon link in the original post. Once at the link connection to the Amazon page, on the left side of the page you will see little boxes with images in them. Click on the fifth box from the top and it will show you the ingredients. Drag your cursor over the enlarged image and you can read that the ingredients are : Purified Water, Xylitol, Saline and Grapefruit Seed Extract with the GSE also doubling as the preservative!

So this product is ready for use just as it was used in the study! One bottle should be sufficient for one person for one course of the treatment outlined in the study for Covid-19.

It's simple enough -- and cheaper -- to create a DIY version of Xlear, which contain four easily accessible ingredients.

Hi ShashiNYC, thank you!

That is very useful information on making a xylitol mix for nasal issues. I agree that a home brew can be less expensive if you are planning to use Xlear for many people, but if you are only using it for yourself and a smaller family, it will be cheaper and easier to just buy Xlear. One bottle should be all that is needed per person for the full treatment schedule outlined in the study. The lowest price I paid was less than $9 a bottle and the highest I paid was $15.

GSE is reported to to be a potent microbicide that is effective against over 800 bacterial and viral strains, 100 strains of fungus and a large number of single and multicelled parasites. Having to add GSE to the xylitol mix you linked to would also increase the price of the xylitol home brew, making it more in line price wise, with the ready to go Xlear Nasal Spray that contains both active components already. I paid $15 at CVS Pharmacy for one bottle of Xlear and less than $9 dollars a bottle for a 3-pack on Amazon which included free shipping. To me that is reasonably priced for a very good quality product that is ready to use against Covid-19. If you have to buy the nasal spray bottles, GSE, DS and Xylitol that would cost more for just a few users, but would be less costly if you are also going to be giving it to family and friends or if you plan on using it for a long time for sinus issues also.

In the case of Covid-19, as the Xlear Nasal Spray was used in the study, GSE may actually be more active than the xylitol against Covid-19, so inclusion of GSE is a must in order to achieve maximal effectiveness against Covid-19.

Thank you for the link/directions and feedback!
