Long Lasting Relief from Chest Congestion + Quality of Life Improvements for Fibromyalgia Patients
ProHealth's Guaifenesin 600mg uses FDA approved extended release technology for quick and long-lasting respiratory therapy. Guaifenesin helps loosen phlegm and thins bronchial secretions to rid the respiratory passageways of mucus while making coughs more productive. This over-the-counter drug is the primary component of Mucinex® and is a common ingredient of many nonprescription cold and cough remedies. This product provides a dual action tablet that includes an immediate release layer for fast-acting relief and an extended release layer that lasts a full 12 hours.
Guaifenesin and Fibromyalgia
Derived from tree bark extract, Guaifenesin also promotes elimination of excess calcium and phosphates, which is the cornerstone of the Guaifenesin Protocol. Originated by R. Paul St. Amand, the protocol asserts that these factors cause the body to experience energy loss which in turn impacts many bodily functions. While the treatment continues to be evaluated it has been adopted by many patients who report an improved quality of life.
Guaifenesin Mechanism of Action
Guaifenesin works by drawing water into the bronchi - the air passages branching into our lungs. The released water both thins the mucus and lubricates the airway, facilitating the removal of cold and allergy associated mucus from the chest by coughing, and making it easier to breathe.
Guaifenesin is also considered helpful for thinning postnasal drainage from the sinuses and reducing nasal congestion, and so may relieve sinus pressure/ headache. As Dr. Sarah Myhill comments, "Whoever designed the human body needs a black mark for putting in sinuses! They are cavities in the bones of the face with only one entry and exit hole which is easily blocked by catarrh or swollen mucus membranes." When this occurs, less oxygen can enter the sinuses, promoting bacterial overgrowth and causing sinusitis.
Guaifenesin can help to relieve congestion by increasing the clearance of secretions, helping with the mucus membrane's natural job of washing away invading viruses, bacteria, pollen and other potential allergens - "the first level of immune defense."
Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma may find guaifenesin's thinning and lubricating action helpful at times when they experience particular difficulty coughing up the thick or sticky mucus that can block damaged airways.
Importantly, whether used to ease the congestion of colds or rhinosinusitis, or to support healthy vocal folds, guaifenesin works best if one drinks plenty of water, as extra fluids increase the flow of water and mucus.
