    Huge discovery!! Anything that reduces our overuse of antibiotics, especially among children, is great news. If xylitol reduces ear infections, it should also reduce sinus and throat infections too, as the same bacteria--streptococcus pneumoniae--causes all of these conditions, as well as pneumonia in the elderly. Xylitol is a sugar alcohol, and available in a plethora of sugar substitute products, as well chewing gum, mouth rinses, etc. It is important to use "organic xylitol," sourced from birch or non-GMO corn.

    For quite a while, I have been using a xylitol based mouthwash. Seems logical to me.

    I don't know how I missed this article. Is this xylitol nasal spray a product that's already on the market, or does one have to make one's own?

    It's already on the market. To the right of the article, there's a picture of the nasal spray. When I clicked on the pic, several different xylitol sprays appeared. For your convenience, the link below provides a wide assortment of sprays.
