Each time you inhale, you breathe in hundreds of thousands of particles; everything from dust to different microbes. As a result, this can irritate and inflame your nasal passages, even leading to painful sinus infections.
To help you combat these unwanted conditions, the manufacturer claims Sinuprex’s blend of 23 clinically-researched ingredients can help break up and drain mucus and relieve congestion, leaving you clear and comfortable. This way, they promise to deliver long-term, “comprehensive relief” from post nasal drip, headaches, facial tenderness, frequent coughing, and a whole host of other problems.
Compared to other all natural herb-based nasal decongestants, though, Sinuprex also contains a proprietary blend of probiotics that promise to improve digestion, boost immune system function, and “balance nasal microflora.”
At first glance, Sinuprex might seem like a powerful new decongestant. After all, you’ve probably heard tons of good things about probiotics, so why not use them to help your nose feel better? But before you hand over your money, we’re going to walk you through all of Sinuprex’s important details—starting with ingredients:
Will Sinuprex’s Ingredients Relieve Nasal Discomfort?
Here’s what we’re told Sinuprex contains:
- Allergic Rhinitus Blend: Butterbur Extract, Stinging Nettle Root Extract, Bromelain Proteolytic, Quercetin, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine
- Pain & Inflammation Blend: Turmeric Extract, Bromelain, Quercetin, White Willow Bark Extract, Boswellia Extract
- Immune Support Blend: Vitamin D3, Zinc, Selenium, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine, Echinacea Purpurea Extract, Ashwagandha Extract, Elderberry Extract, Panax Ginseng Extract
Of these, butterbur can help reduce migraine and hay fever caused by grass pollen. Turmeric may help relieve itching, but only related to long-term kidney disease. Willow bark contains salicin, an aspirin-like pain reliever.
However, all of Sinuprex’s other ingredients don’t seem to have enough (or any) clinical evidence indicating that they might improve nasal health or reduce unwanted side effects.
Important note: Did you notice that there weren’t any probiotics listed above? While common genera like lactobacillus, bifidobacteria, and bacillus are often found in probiotics, they only work within your digestive tract. As such, there’s zero evidence that they can do anything to help improve the balance of your nasal microflora. Let’s continue this thought into the next section.
The Many Causes of Nasal Discomfort
Regardless of everything we’ve discussed, it’s important to keep in mind that there can be hundreds of different causes of nasal congestion and sinus problems, including colds, anatomical issues (such as a deviated septum), certain medications, excess stress, certain medical conditions (e.g. asthma, nasal polyps, etc.), illness, and more. And as you might imagine, each of these might involve very different treatments.
As such, if you experience frequent nasal discomfort, the fastest route to solving the issue is making an appointment with your doctor. Let’s talk about one more thing before moving on to Sinuprex’s price.
Does Sinuprex’s Manufacturer Understand Basic Science?
Inside your nose, there exists a three-part system for keeping things on the up-and-up:
- Mucus, a slimy, non-water-soluble substance that lines your nose (among many other areas of your body), and acts as a protective blanket to help maintain moisture. Mucus can also trap particulate matter that enters your nose.
- Larger hairs toward the front of your nose that act as the first line of defense against particulate matter, and also add heat and moisture to the air you breathe in.
- Cilia, which are microscopic hairs toward the back of the nose, which move back and forth and help move mucus out.
Taken together, these are the physical barriers that protect your nose from pathogens and keep you healthy. However, from a chemical perspective, there’s nothing contained in Sinuprex that will help this system work any better to “help block and sweep out dust, mold, pollen, fungus, and animal hair before they cause big problems.”
Although Sinuprex’s ingredients might not work as advertised, they good news is that they’re probably safe and won’t cause any side effects worse than an upset stomach. Will you pay a lot for these ingredients, though?
Does Sinuprex Come with a High Price?
Sinuprex is only available through the manufacturer (more about them in a second) in three different options:
- 1 Box: $49.95 plus $6.95 S&H
- 4 Boxes: $149.85 plus free S&H
- 7 Boxes: $249.75 plus free S&H
The company claims all Sinuprex orders come with an unconditional money-back guarantee, with no time restrictions. To request one, you’ll need to call customer service at 877-708-5958. Just who will you be calling and what might you expect?
Sinuprex is brought to you by Nu Era Labs, headquartered out of Lakewood, NJ. It doesn’t appear they manufacture any other products, and they don’t have a website of their own.
They did, however, have an F Better Business Bureau rating during our research. Most customers complained about problems obtaining a refund, and the company didn’t respond to the majority of these complaints. Given this, if you’re dissatisfied with your purchase, you might experience difficulty getting your money back.
Do Doctors Really “Swear By” Sinuprex?
Even after our extensive research, we didn’t come across a single third-party endorsement for Sinuprex from any kind of medical professional. But if we’re being honest, considering their clinically unsubstantiated ingredients, fairly high price, and poor company reputation, we don’t think this comes as much of a surprise.
Speaking of price, while they certainly won’t include the same formulation, traditional nasal decongestants—using ingredients with much more clinical substantiation—can be found lining the aisles at your local pharmacy for much less than Sinuprex. And if you’re not satisfied, obtaining a refund could be as easy as hopping in your car and driving a few blocks.
Does this necessarily mean that you shouldn’t hand over your credit card number and order a box of Sinuprex? Ultimately, this decision is up to you—but based on everything we’ve discussed here, you might get much less bang-for-your-buck than by making an appointment with your doctor.
