Different from our Essential Zinc encapsulated product, Zinc-Oxy Spray provides immediate zinc benefits through the nasal passages. Optimal Zinc-Oxy Spray combines two OHS formulas with a saline solution to deliver nutritional support for immediate relief to your nasal passages and antimicrobial nutrients into your lungs. This is our strongest immediate relief formula for nasal and lung nutritional support.
Both your body and pathogens require zinc for survival, creating a nutrient deficiency in your body as both you and the pathogen fight to monopolize the zinc supply. Zinc is found in cells throughout the body.
Zinc helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. Some studies have found that zinc may reduce the duration of colds, and may reduce the number of upper respiratory infections in children.
Other research shows that zinc helps control infections by gently tapping the brakes on the immune response in a way that prevents out-of-control inflammation. Scientists determined in human cell culture and animal studies that a protein lures zinc into key cells that are first-responders against infection. The zinc then interacts with a process that is vital to the fight against infection and by doing so helps balance the immune response.
Optimal Oxy Pure compliments Zinc well by creating a richly oxygenated environment pathogens can’t survive in. Pathogenic microbes die when exposed to oxygen-rich environments as proven by Nobel Peace Prize recipient Dr. Otto Warburg. Oxygen helps protect you from anaerobic bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungus, mold, and parasites.
Beneficial microbes, however, are basically aerobic and thrive in an oxygen-rich environment. Using an aerobic stabilized oxygen product like Oxy Pure can increase oxygen levels, something your body needs to nutritionally support your immune system to defeat these harmful invaders.
An O4 molecule that’s like compressed oxygen in liquid form, you take Oxy Pure to help with oxygenation, thus keeping you healthy. It helps nutritionally support fighting cold, flu, infection, rash, shingles, alkalinization, candia, bug bites, athlete’s foot, and more. Oxypure has 350,000 parts per million of dissolved bioavailable oxygen, guaranteeing a 35% oxygen strength.
We’ve also included a saline solution to help aid in the clearing of your nasal passages. A saline wash helps flush pollen, dust, and other debris from your nasal passages. It also helps remove excess mucus and adds moisture, providing relief from itchiness and inflammation. This can help prevent sinus infections.
A Note On Claims of Loss of Smell (NOT from Zinc Oxy-Pure)
Our science team notes that there are no saline-based nose sprays that contain our living minerals. Inorganic zinc has been tied – though loosely – to a loss of smell. The company that was targeted with the issue was Zicam.
Zicam used zinc gluconate (C12H22O14Zn) and zinc acetate (ZnC₄H₆O₄) as their zinc source. These are artificially created molecules using elemental zinc with carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.
Our zinc is in ionic form and derived as ZN+ from plant sources. It’s a completely different source, and a natural one at that. We can definitely see how sniffing inorganic zinc compounds could have a deleterious effect on the nerve endings in the nose responsible for the sense of smell.
There is no absolute certain proof that the zinc in Zicam did indeed cause the loss of smell in a small population (less than 150 people globally according to our research) out of millions of products sold. Nevertheless, the FDA always tries to err on the side of caution.
Many doctors and patients report the improvement of smell and taste by providing ionic zinc, oxygen and saline directly to the membranes through this spray.
