The standardized nutrients and botanicals in Sinatrol help support microflora balance, promote normal mucus viscocity for healthy sinus function, and promote a balanced inflammatory response.
N-Acetyl Cysteine is a powerful amino acid that acts as a mucolytic by breaking up disulfide bonds. This decreases the viscosity of mucus and allows the sinuses to drain. This makes conditions in the sinus less conducive for bacteria and fungi to grow.
Turmeric and Bromelain
The sinuses are composed of soft tissue that can be irritated by allergens, bacteria and viruses. Turmeric is the orange-colored spice used for thousands of years for its culinary and medicinal purposes. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and has been found to limit the action of lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase, enzymes involved in inflammation. Sinatrol includes turmeric which is standardized to contain 95% curcumin. Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple, provides an added synergistic effect when combined with turmeric as bromelain has been shown to modulate the arachidonic cascade.
