BREATHOX®

BREATHOX® is a safe and effective expectorant indicated in enhancement of mucociliary clearance, and in the alleviation of nasal and bronchial congestion.

The treatment is non-medical and based on salt particle inhalation.

BREATHOX® improves quality of life for consumers by improving and maintaining their ability to breathe more comfortably.

Technology

Breathox® is the worlds first salt particle inhaler*.

The patented breath-actuated device allows the consumer to use the product comfortably at home or on-the-go.

The Sodium Chloride ingredient is based on salt directly extracted from a 280 million year old salt tectonic in Northern Denmark.  Subsequently, this raw material is processed into pharmaceutical grade NaCl complying with the monographs of all int. pharmacopoeia; Ph. Eur., USP, JP, KP, Ph. Rus. This unique technology makes the Breathox an unprecedented, drug-free offer to consumers with respiratory challenges.

Breathox® is developed by a team of leading Scandinavian scientist, designers and engineers.

 

*) The dispensed NaCl micro particle size range from 1-10µm allowing respiratory application.

Market

Breathox® is an OTC product targeted at the following consumer segments:

 

  • chronic or temporary respiratory patients
  • allergy sufferers
  • smokers and ex-smokers

 

Together these segments consist of more than 25% of the international OTC market.

Mode of action

Breathox® is non-pharmaceutical and has a triple mode of action:

Antibacterial

The dispensed NaCl has antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
This results in mucolytic, bronchial drainage and sanitary acting, anti-inflammatory effects on the respiratory tract.

Physiochemical

Due to the osmotic effect of Breathox®:

 

  1. Increase hydration of secretions.
  2. Draws-out excess water reducing the edema of the in the mucosa.
  3. Enhance airway clearance by weakening the bonding of mucous to surfaces (stickiness) and the viscosity (thickness) of mucous in the respiratory tract.
Mechanical

The salt aerosols helps in cleaning the airway system from excess mucous, crusts, dust, debris, pollutants, allergens, germs in a natural way;

 

  • Negative ions revive and speed-up cilia beat; hence, the mucus layer move faster and restore the respiratory clearance.
