I often have a stuffy nose, particularly during seasonal changes. Can you recommend effective natural remedies and products for this problem?
question from our customer S.
What causes nasal congestion?
The feeling of a stuffy nose, also known as “nasal congestion“, is a very common discomfort and one of the main symptoms of a cold. The overproduction of mucus, produced to eliminate bacteria, obstructs the nasal passages, making it more difficult to breathe.
In this case, you are forced to breathe through your mouth, increasing the possibility of introducing germs and pathogens. Consequently, it is necessary to intervene as soon as possible with the right remedies, to avoid further worsening.
All you need to do, is unblock the airways, to encourage the fluidification of the mucus. Consequently, it is possible to act through ad hoc drugs or, alternatively, by using natural remedies that are risk-free for health.
