Nozoil is an oil made from cold pressed Sesame seed oil and a natural preservative called Unipherol-14 (which also contains hydroxybenzoate). Nozoil contains all three naturally occurring forms of Vitamin E (that is alpha, gamma and beta forms) This product has a high concentration of the antioxidant Vitamin E.
How does Nozoil work?
Vitamin E has been shown in the laboratory to minimize the effects of inflammation on nasal tissue. Since these harmful effects are reduced, the tissue is then protected from breakdown. This means that the symptoms of dryness, crusting and even in some cases bleeding, are avoided.
If nasal tissue has already been subjected to the effects of inflammation, then Vitamin E will heal the tissue by preventing further inflammation and giving the body a chance to heal the damaged tissues.
Nozoil can therefore be considered both a healer and a preventer of nasal tissue damage.
When should you use Nozoil
Nozoil should be used whenever you experience dryness or crusting of your nose. There may occasionally be a nose bleed associated with the dryness and crusting. If the bleeding does not respond to application of Nozoil over two days, or is severe, then medical attention must be sought.
Your doctor may advise the use of Nozoil after surgery to the nose. This will be to moisturize those tissues while they heal.
There are other occasions on which you may wish to use Nozoil and they may be listed as follows:
Nasal dryness and crusting associated with medication:
When using medications such as nasal steroid sprays for hayfever or other sinus/nasal conditions.
Some acne treatments can cause dryness and crusting of the nasal tissues
Colds and Flu
After colds and flu the nasal tissues can become dry and crusty
Low humidity environments
Working in low humidity environments such as those found in airconditioned offices can result in nasal dryness and crusting
Long overseas journeys
Cabin air in aircraft has a very low humidity and use of Nozoil will condition the nose and make you much more comfortable
Use of nasal CPAP and Oxygen therapy
If high flow rates of air or oxygen are applied to the nose over a period of time then the tissues become inflamed and dryness, crusting and stuffiness are experienced. Nozoil has been shown in clinical trials to alleviate these symptoms and improve the comfort of therapy
Radiation therapy for head and neck cancers
This treatment results in the accumulation of mucus in the nose and sinuses and as it dries the mucus becomes very crusty. Clinical study has shown that use of Nozoil alleviates these symptoms after a few days and relief is experienced while the oil is being used. If for some reason treatment of Nozoil is stopped, then the symptoms will recur.
Nasal dryness /crusting or dripping in old age
In older people there are age changes to the lining of the nose and the cartilages in the nose. These changes result in the nose becoming either dry and crusty or very wet and dripping. These symptoms can be relieved with the use of Nozoil.
What side effects can be expected?
There have been relatively few side effects reported with the use of Nozoil, and they are considered to be minor, ranging from itching to a feeling of nasal blockage.
Allergy to Sesame seed has been reported. If you have a history of allergy to Sesame seed it is advisable not to use this product before consulting your healthcare professional. Nozoil is a pharmaceutical grade oil and as such is very highly refined. Allergy tends to occur to the husks of the seed.
Can Nozoil be used in pregnancy and breast feeding?
Nozoil can be used during pregnancy and breast feeding
Are there any precautions when using Nozoil?
Nozoil should be used with care if you have had surgery to your sinuses or to the duct which drains your tears into the nose. During this surgery it is possible for the duct to have been made wide enough for oil to ascend into the eye. Check with your surgeon before using this product.
It is best not to use Nozoil last thing at night before retiring to bed. Try and ensure that there is at least one hour between your dose of Nozoil and when you lie down for the night.
How often do I need to use Nozoil?
Nozoil can be used as often as required but usually two doses per day are sufficient.
What dose of Nozoil should be used?
Nozoil may be used as often as required to relieve symptoms of nasal dryness and crusting.
