Why do I have to stop taking CLEARGUARD after
It's a precautionary measure. CLEARGUARD contains
cinnamon, which the American Herbal Products
Association* classifies as “not for long-term
use.” For this reason, and since CLEARGUARD is
designed to be taken for occasional sniffles and
sneezes NUTRILITE scientists recommend interrupting
your use of CLEARGUARD after 12 weeks. Our scientists
also chose a water-based cinnamon, to reduce the
chance of it building up in your body. We anticipate
that after a week or more of discontinuing your use of
CLEARGUARD, the cinnamon constituents will be washed
out of your system. Then, if your nose continues to be
stuffy, you can resume using CLEARGUARD.
