Vicks First Defence Micro-Gel Nasal Spray fights cold germs before they can take hold: When used at the first signs of a cold.
Vicks First Defence nasal spray has been clinically proven to:
help stops a cold in its tracks and not develop into a full-blown cold
it can also reduce symptoms severity and duration
How a cold develops:
Cold viruses attach to the cells at the back of the nose via surface receptors and stat invading the cells.
The viruses multiply to such an extent that the body's immune response launches. You experience the first cold symptoms (such as a tickle at the back of the throat or sneezing).
The viruses continue to multiply and spread. The symptoms further develop.
The infection develops into a full blown cold, leaving you with all the bothersome symptoms.
How First Defence Nasal Spray works: When used at the 1st signs of a cold, First Defence nasal spray acts at the back of the nose directly where the cold virus takes hold and starts to develop (that's why it is a nasal spray). It traps, inactivates and helps your body naturally remove the cold viruses, to reduce the risk of the initial infection developing into a full blown cold.
Trap: The unique micro-gel formula traps the cold viruses that start to develop at the back of the nose and helps prevent them from developing and spreading.
Inactivate: The micro-gel reduces the pH of the nasal cavity and inactivates the viruses, reducing their ability to multiply and further infect you.
Remove: Then, it flushes the nose and stimulates natural secretion (one of the body's natural defences in the nose) to help naturally remove the inactivated virus (toward the stomach or by blowing one's nose).
Directions for using Vicks First Defence Micro-Gel Nasal Spray:
