There are many claimed benefits of Sinupret. The herbal supplement is believed to help support healthy sinus, respiratory, and immune function. It is often used for the treatment of allergies, colds, sinus infections, and ear infections. Unlike many other dietary or herbal supplements, a number of studies have actually been done to support these claimed benefits of this supplement.
Sinupret® is a very popular herbal supplement, claimed to be beneficial for "supporting healthy sinus and respiratory function." It is not entirely clear exactly what this means, but this vague language is necessary due to the way that herbal supplements are regulated in the United States (they cannot claim to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent any disease except in special situations).
However, in Germany, Sinupret is approved for the "treatment of acute and chronic inflammation of the paranasal sinuses." The paranasal sinuses are the ones directly connected to the nasal cavity, and inflammation can be caused by a wide range of conditions such as allergies, the common cold, other infections, or other problems. Sinupret is often used in combination with antibiotics for treating sinus infections. It is also sometimes recommended for treating ear infections.
Unlike many other herbal remedies, Sinupret has actually been studied and appears to be possibly beneficial for some uses (see Does Sinupret Work? for more information).
Sinupret is claimed to support healthy sinus, respiratory, and immune function. Studies in laboratory animals or cells suggest that the product has antibacterial and antiviral effects. It also appears to have anti-inflammatory activity and may help break down and thin mucus.
