VISCOFLU® nasal spray is a medical device made from 3% hypertonic saline solution at controlled pH and 6% N-acetylcysteine. It is indicated to facilitate the fluidification and mechanical removal of mucus and/or muco-purulent secretions stagnant inside the nasal cavity (rhinitis) and inside the paranasal sinuses (sinusitis), improving the symptoms and course of acute, subacute, and chronic inflammation of the upper respiratory tract.
VISCOFLU® sachets is a food supplement and contains N-acetyl-L-cysteine associateci to enzymes derived from the controlled fermentation of maltodextrins through Aspergillus oryzae and Aspergillus melleus, with Vitamin C and riboflavin, vitamins useful to help and protect cells from oxidative stress and, respectively, to contribute to the efficiency of the immune system and to support the correct function of mucosa.
VISCOFLU® ampoules is a single-use medical device indicated during treatment of respiratory diseases featuring dense and viscous hypersecretion: acute bronchitis, chronic bronchitis and its complications, pulmonary emphysema, cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis, sinusitis, secretory otitis.
|Functional Ingredient||For 1 sachet|
|Vitamin C||200 mg|

Acetylcysteine is a derivative of natural amino acid. It can be taken orally or in the form of a solution to be inhaled by aerosol or nasal spray.
Vitamin C, is an essential component of the human diet. Humans do not have the last enzyme involved in the synthesis of vitamin C (the gluconolactone oxidase) and therefore require the presence of vitamin C in the diet to avert the deficiency disease, scurvy. It is an important regulator for iron uptake as it promotes the absorption of non-heme iron in the gastrointestinal tract. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger. Supplementation with vitamin C improves some important parameters of immune function. Vitamin C contributes to the normal function of the immune system and it is involved in the prevention and treatment of the common cold. By stimulating the production of collagen, Vitamin C, in addition to making the skin more elastic and turgid, contributes to the normal function of blood vessels, bones, gums, and teeth.

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), is the precursor of coenzymes that collaborate with the catalysts involved in energy production, essential for cell functioning. Riboflavin also protects cells from oxidative stress and promotes the health of mucous membranes, as well as contributing to the integrity of the nervous system, skin and eyes. It supports iron metabolism and participates in the production of red blood cells. Riboflavin deficiency is manifested by fatigue, fatigue, ocular disorders, inflammation of the mouth and tongue, and skin lesions.
