Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. What is NasalGuard Airborne Particle Blocker?
NasalGuard Airborne Particle Blocker is a clear gel, applied outside the nose, that uses electrostatic technology to reduce the inhalation of airborne particles before entering your nasal passages.
2. Why should I use NasalGuard?
NasalGuard helps keep you from inhaling common airborne contaminants that can cause illness or irritation. These contaminants can be hiding during your commute to work, in waiting rooms where you could find virus-sized particles (both rhinovirus and influenza), and crowded places where you frequent. Irritants also consist of allergens (pet dander, dust mites, mold, and pollen) which surround you both indoors and outdoors.
3. How does NasalGuard work?
NasalGuard gel uses a cationic (positively-charged) polymer that creates a safe electrostatic field around the nasal passages which traps oppositely-charged particles and repels similarly-charged particles to reduce inhalation of most harmful airborne particles BEFORE they enter your body. NasalGuard has no active drug ingredients which would interact with other medications that a user might be taking.
