If you are looking for new and effective ways to stay healthy these days, NasalGuard Airborne Particle Blocker can help protect you from even pandemic-sized particles. This innovative topical gel blocks particles before they enter your nose, making it a gigantic gamechanger in the preventative space.
Originally invented by Ashok Wahi as a way to help one of his daughters deal with her debilitating allergies, NasalGuard, which is safe and drug-free, filters out harmful particles. “Think of it as a Brita for your nose,” explains Kanika Wahi, Mr. Wahi’s daughter, who now works for her father’s company at their headquarters in Somerville, NJ and holds a biomedical engineering degree. “Just like when you apply sunscreen before going to the beach, NasalGuard is all about being preventive.”
Though NasalGuard has been a popular particle blocker for many years, they are now working at warp speed to bring new products to the market in the wake of the pandemic. In an effort to fill the re-energized need for people wanting to keep themselves and their families healthy, the non-toxic NasalGuard is currently filing patents on new extensions of the same technology. This booming brand, which was cleared by the FDA years ago – even though they are categorized as a non-invasive general-purpose item, making them exempt from needing FDA registration going forward– is forging ahead faster than ever before in the fight against virulent viruses. Their scientists and engineers are currently doing more and more testing to stay on track.
It’s time to unmask the truth about NasalGuard – this easy-to-apply gel enhances the effectiveness of wearing a mask when applied first and lasts for up to seven hours. So how does just a small drop work to diminish your chances of breathing in dangerous particles? Well, most airborne particles like dust, pollen, pollution and virus-sized particles tend to be negatively charged. NasalGuard, a positively charged gel, creates a safe electrostatic field around the nasal passages, trapping the negatively charged particles and repelling the positive ones. “All you have to do is just apply a pin size drop around your nostrils and upper lip before heading out,” says Kanika. “Just like sunscreen, you want to make sure you apply it before going where you might be exposed. Plus, when you’re not inhaling all those pesky particles, it reduces your chances of experiencing symptoms as well. Each tube gives you about 150 applications when used as directed.”
When it comes time to best gearing up for battle against virus-sized particles, NasalGuard is one of the safest and most scientifically proven measures you can arm yourself with. It is now possible to feel more secure on airplanes, as well as in homes, offices, hospitals and when taking public transportation. Each drop prevents the inhalation of so many different spectrums of particles, from virus sized particles to the more prevalent ones like dust and pollen floating all around us. Whether you choose the unscented or menthol variety, this drug-free find is safe for children of all ages as well as pregnant women.
In an effort to help healthcare workers fighting on the front lines, those working at NasalGuard began sending their products to area hospitals, and thus the Breathe Easier Donation Program was born. “We were receiving inquiries from nurses and aides asking to receive samples or to buy extra product. We eventually decided to make free donations for those making sacrifices and doing so much for us. This program is for anyone who wants to request samples for themselves and their team, they just have to show proof of profession and hospital and whoever they’re affiliated with.”
So far, NasalGuard Airborne Particle Blocker has donated thousands of product to staff at RWJ Barnabas Health, Lenox Hill, Hackensack Meridian Health, Saint Barnabas Medical Center and University Radiology Group. The program now expands to support FireFighters and Families in Northern California due to the raging fires that leave toxic smoke in the air.
