Oxytocin nasal spray scams: how do you tell a great product from an overpriced, overhyped poor quality one?
Below, let's take a look at the ingredients in a prominently advertised product:
10 IU Oxytocin per serving (2 sprays). One spray 2x daily in each nostril.
Active ingredient: Oxytocin
Inactive ingredients: Benzalkonium Chloride, Citric Acid, Dextrose, Purified Water, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Citrate
At least 40 IU is needed to have any real benefit. In many reviews I read, it is common for users of above product to state that 3x the dose was needed to feel good.
'Purified Water' can mean anything. What you want is STERILE water.
Additionally, there were comments on increasing nasal irritation with use of product AND some also said the product made them agitated (the opposite of desired benefit) and attributed that to the additives.
Oxytocin nasal spray scams have several consequences.
First, eroding peoples' confidence in the spectacular benefits of a very safe neurohormone The safety of oxytocin is largely based on the fact that your body makes this hormone naturally. In small doses oxytocin therapy rarely has side effects.
Loss of confidence in this wonderful hormone happens because a low-potency, mass-produced product with toxic additives cannot possibly show you the kind of great feeling and healthy response possible with a superbly crafted formula.
Secondly, wasting your money. Because of the loose standards of the company, you may get a 'secondhand' or even 'thirdhand' item that has been returned one or more times, then re-shipped to you.
This precious compound needs to be cared for properly. Even with preservatives, oxytocin nasal spray will degrade over time and under extremes of temperature both hot and cold. You also have no assurance that the pricey little bottle of elixir has been stored under ideal (refrigerated) conditions!
On top of all that, the recommended doses of the most popular products of this kind are FAR too low!
AND - you may find that with continued use, the mass-produced products with preservatives irritate your delicate sinuses!
I am extremely particular about product purity and effectiveness with zero tolerance for questionable additives.
Typically, oxytocin nasal spray products contain additives to extend shelf life. This is because companies want distributors to be able to stockpile large amounts of product for resale. As well, it is MUCH cheaper to produce any product in huge batches. A sort shelf life would limit the amount of product produced at any one time.
Another reason for putting preservatives in oxytocin nasal spray is that the company can then advertise 'money-back guarantee,' make more sales, accept returns, and resell returned product to another customer. This compromises the already pathetic potency of these products.
A very popular such product contains Benzalkonium chloride (also used in decongestant sprays) as a preservative.
Here is what one study (1) in PubMed says: 'Most decongestant sprays contain the preservative benzalkonium chloride (BKC), which causes toxic reactions in the nose, eyes, ears, and lungs, and may exacerbate the symptoms of allergic rhinitis.'
(Benzalkonium chloride is popularly used in nasal decongestants).
Below, some info from drugs.com:
Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome:
Brief stinging at the application site.
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur while taking benzalkonium chloride topical:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue).
Some oxytocin nasal sprays contain peppermint extract as well. I am not sure if such a compound can damage the oxt molecule, but I do know that peppermint extract is not recommended for topical (skin application) use. It would stand to reason that means it is a really bad idea to apply it to delicate mucous membranes!
I would not be sharing all this if I did not have an answer for you.
What if there were an oxytocin nasal spray freshly made weekly in small batches - so clear, clean and potent that it could bring light into your life with no undesirable side effects?
And what if the price of this precious liquid was insanely cheap compared to any other?
I am VERY excited to share my delightful experience of the best Oxytocin Nasal Spray!
