Canadian Wild Fire Smoke in New Jersey and New York

A Solution for "Breathing Easier" Amidst Wildfire Smoke in the Eastern and Mid-Western US

NasalGuard® Airborne Particle Blocker: A Solution for "Breathing Easier" Amidst Wildfire Smoke in the Eastern and Mid-Western US

Somerville, NJ- June 2023As the Eastern and Mid-Western US are cloaked in an orange haze due to wildfire smoke originating from Canada, officials urge residents in both countries to take necessary precautions against the unhealthy or hazardous air.

CNN reports indicate that over 55 million people just in the eastern US are currently under air quality alerts. The smoke's heaviest impact is expected across the Northeast through the Mid- Atlantic down to the Carolinas.

In response, NasalGuard® Airborne Particle Blocker has reintroduced its “Breathe Easier Awareness Program.” The NasalGuard product is a unique ionic particle-blocking topical nasal gel designed to reduce the inhalation of harmful airborne particles, including smoke. This drug- free product is safe for everyone, including children, the elderly, pregnant or nursing women, and those concerned about potential drug interactions with other medications.

NasalGuard encourages individuals within the smoke-affected zones to take precautions at peak smoke times. For those exposed to the toxic air, the company recommends using the NasalGuard gel and fine mist nasal spray for protection. For more information, visit

"NasalGuard has demonstrated effectiveness in reducing airborne particle inhalation, including smoke and virus-sized particles, when applied outside the nasal passages," says Ashok Wahi, co-inventor of NasalGuard. His colleague, co-inventor, Ms. Kanika Wahi, adds, "Given the current situation in the Northeast, our goal is to provide some relief and protection."

Throughout the west coast forest fires and the pandemic, NasalGuard has donated thousands of units to first responders, hospitals, healthcare workers, and charitable non-profit organizations.

NasalGuard functions by using a cationic (positively charged) polymer that creates a safe electrostatic field around the nasal passages. This field traps oppositely charged airborne particles, thus reducing the inhalation of harmful airborne particles before they enter the body. The product's effect lasts for up to 4-6 hours. It works against a wide spectrum of sub- microscopic indoor and outdoor contaminants, including smoke, mold, pollen, pet dander, pollution, and virus-sized particles.
