What is NeutraSal®?
NeutraSal® (supersaturated calcium phosphate rinse) is a prescription mouth rinse. NeutraSal® is indicated to treat the painful symptoms associated with oral mucositis. NeutraSal® should be started at the beginning of cancer therapy including chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
NeutraSal® is packaged in single use packets of dissolving powder, that when mixed in water, creates an oral rinse supersaturated with calcium and phosphate ions.
NeutraSal® does NOT contain sugar, yeast, wheat, gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or any preservatives.
How does NeutraSal® work?
NeutraSal® is an advanced electrolyte solution that mimics natural saliva. NeutraSal® contains electrolytes such as calcium, phosphate, bicarbonate and chloride. These electrolytes are necessary for a healthy, functioning mouth. NeutraSal® is designed to replace the normal ionic and pH balance in the oral cavity (mouth).
Mechanism of Action of NeutraSal®
When NeutraSal® is taken at the start of chemotherapy, NeutraSal® maintains the functionality of the oral cavity through healing of the oral mucosa. The ions contained in NeutraSal® diffuse into the intercellular spaces in the epithelium and permeate the mucosal lesion(s) in mucositis.
Ions within the mouth such as calcium and phosphate play crucial roles in the healing process:
