How it works
What causes sinusitis
Sinusitis, or inflammation of the sinuses (the air filled spaces in the skull), can develop when there’s an excess of mucus or swelling in the nasal cavity – for example, due to the common cold or an allergy (like hayfever).1
Xanthium: traditionally used to relieve sinus pain in TCM
Oriental Botanicals SinuClear contains xanthium, which is traditionally taken in TCM to ease symptoms of sinusitis such as sinus pain, nasal congestion and a runny nose.
Xanthium is also traditionally used to reduce excess mucus and ease post-nasal drip in Chinese medicine.
For those who experience sinusitis that’s developed following hayfever,1 xanthium may also be worth considering due to it traditional properties in TCM for relieving an itchy nose and sneezing related to wind-coldness.
White angelica: traditionally taken to ease symptoms of sinusitis in Chinese medicine
White angelica is another important herb in TCM. White angelica is traditionally used in the Cang Er Zi San formula, traditionally taken for the relief of sinusitis symptoms such as sinus pain and congestion, and to clear the nasal passages.
Oriental Botanicals SinuClear also includes other ingredients from the well-known Cang Er Zi San formula - herbs magnolia flower, Asian wild mint and houttuynia.
