CofixRX is a nasal spray that acts as a virucidal and sanitizer in the nasal passages. The main ingredient of this over-the-counter nasal spray is Iodine, which has been used for decades in the medical field as a highly effective antiseptic/anti-pathogen cleanser for surgical prep and wound cleansing. Iodine is an essential mineral, meaning the body needs it for proper function but cannot produce it on its own, so it must be ingested from foods such as salt, shellfish and seaweed, dairy products, and eggs. It is essential for proper thyroid function and when used as a topical solution it is a powerful solution that destroys viral pathogens, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. Povidone-Iodine 1.25% is the active ingredient in CofixRX and it also contains purified water, Vitamin D3, Gellan Gum, Xylitol, Carrageenan, Polysorbate, and Sodium Hydroxide. All of these FDA-approved ingredients are sourced from here in the United States and the nasal sprays are also assembled and manufactured in the United States.
The solution is sprayed into each nostril and binds to and coats the nasopharynx and oropharynx, which is where illness-causing viruses, including Covid-19, the flu, and the common cold incubate. The Povidone slows the rate of absorption of Iodine into the body, allowing it to remain in the nasal passages for up to 8 hours to provide protection from foreign pathogens and bacteria. If a viral or bacterial pathogen enters the nasal cavity, the solution attracts and traps the foreign body then destroys it. CofixRX reduces the viral load of the Covid-19 virus, SARS-CoV-2, by 99.99% and destroys the flu and common cold viruses completely. The added Vitamin D3 provides 50mcg (2000 IU) per application to boost the body’s immune system. The way CofixRX works is actually quite a simple process. The Polysorbate and Sodium Hydroxide work as emulsifiers to stabilize the mixture of solutions, so the ingredients do not separate over time.
Utah State University’s Institute for Antiviral Research has performed extensive testing on CofixRX’s effectiveness on different illness-causing pathogens. One of their studies was a 7 day controlled experiment to determine CofixRX’s effectiveness against SARS-CoV-2 (the Covid-19 virus), Influenza B (the Flu), HRV-14 (the Common Cold), and RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus). The results of this experiment after each virus was exposed to the CofixRX solution for 45 seconds determined that CofixRX is highly virucidal against all four viruses.
Based upon these results and other medical studies on CofixRX, it is believed that the proven virucidal effects of this product would have similar effects on different variants of these different viral pathogens and other illness-causing foreign bodies.
The usage instructions for CofixRX are very user friendly and quick, making this a great OTC preventative for most individuals. For adults and children 6 years of age and older, simply shake well then apply one spray quickly and firmly into each nostril, equaling a total dosage of ¼ of a milliliter, of which 1.25% is the active ingredient Povidone-Iodine. Do not tilt your head back during application as it will affect the solution’s ability to properly coat the nasal passages. Do not use this product if you have a Shellfish or Iodine allergy. It is recommended to consult with your doctor before using this product if you have or recently had nasal ulcers or nasal surgery, a nasal injury that is not healed, trouble urinating due to an enlarged prostate, heart or thyroid disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. After spraying the solution in each nostril the user is protected for 8 hours and can reapply 2 more times throughout the day, totaling no more than 3 applications within a 24 hour period. If a person sneezes or blows their nose within one minute of application, they must immediately reapply the nasal spray to ensure the solution is effectively in place.
Although CofixRX is described as a preventative treatment, if a person is already sick they can use this nasal spray too! It will destroy any foreign pathogens and reduce the viral load in a sick person’s nasal passages, decreasing the number of infectious agents that the body’s immune system has to fight, and the Vitamin D3 will help boost the immune system’s abilities to fight off these infectious agents. Regardless of this product’s potent antiviral and sanitizing properties, it is still important to remember that the ultimate goal is to stop and prevent the spread of germs so it is highly recommended that people do not share their nasal spray with anyone else. Overall, CofixRX is a cost-efficient, safe, and powerful antiviral nasal spray that is an excellent addition to your daily illness prevention plan!
