Does Sinupret Work?
Sinupret supplements are claimed to be beneficial for supporting healthy sinus and respiratory function, but do they work? The supplements appear to be effective when used in combination with standard treatments (such as antibiotics) for treating acute sinusitis. Studies also suggest the effectiveness of Sinupret for treating bronchitis, chronic sinusitis, and ear infections.
Does Sinupret Really Work?
Sinupret® is claimed to support healthy sinus and respiratory function. Does it really work, though? This article will address the effectiveness of Sinupret for various uses, including the treatment of:
- Acute sinusitis, such as sinus infections
- Chronic (long-term) sinusitis, which might be caused by allergies
- Ear infections.
Sinupret and Scientific Evidence
Although Sinupret has been evaluated in several different clinical studies, not all of these studies have been published. Of the ones that have been published, some are available only in German (not in English). These problems limit the ability to fully evaluate the product. In general, the studies seem to suggest that Sinupret is effective when used in combination with standard treatments (such as antibiotics) for treating acute sinusitis (sinus inflammation or infection).
Studies also indicate that Sinupret may also be useful for treating bronchitis. Some (but not all) studies indicate that the supplement may be useful for treating chronic sinusitis. Very early evidence suggests that Sinupret may be useful for the treatment of ear infections. Much more research is necessary before it can be stated with certainty that the product definitely works for any of these uses.
Additionally, studies (and extensive use in Europe for over 70 years) suggest that Sinupret is a relatively safe medication.
