Even though we can’t see it, the air we breathe affects our health. Polluted air can cause difficulty breathing, flare-ups of allergies or asthma, and other lung problems. So I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that you may have air purifiers at home. I do. But what about the time we spend away from home, like when we’re at work or our kids are at school? As a parent of an asthmatic child, it’s important for me to ensure the air my son breathes throughout the day is as clean as possible. Now, obviously that’s not exactly an easy task…until now. I recently learned about a new product called FEND, and it’s the on-the-go solution I’ve been looking for to help me with this task.

What is FEND?
In laymen’s terms, FEND is a portable misting system that filters the air you breathe.
The more detailed answer? FEND is a new hygiene system that cleanses the upper respiratory airways, strengthening the body’s natural ability to help keep the lungs cleaner and healthier.
The system itself is a small misting device that uses a drug-free, calcium-enriched saline solution. The mister creates perfectly sized particles that exit the device in a mist, which is inhaled through your nose. When inhaled deeply, the particles in the mist help your upper airways capture and eliminate airborne contaminants before they reach your lungs. It also helps reduce the number of airborne contaminants you exhale back into the air.
So using FEND isn’t necessarily changing the quality of the air around you, but it helps your body effectively process the air you breathe.
Using the FEND Mister
It’s important to note that the first time you use FEND, you’ll have to prime the mister, just like when you get a new soap dispenser. After that, each use is pretty simple.
To use the mister, place 2-3 fingers on the top of the device, with your thumb on the bottom. Then, holding the mister upright and close to your face, firmly squeeze the top and bottom together. As the device compresses, it releases a mist of the calcium-enriched saline solution. Deeply inhale the mist 2 times.
Do not place the mister right up to your nose. FEND is not a nasal spray and is not designed to be sprayed directly into the nose. Unlike nasal sprays, this system is designed to generate a gentle, safe mist that is inhaled into the upper airways versus being inserted and sprayed into the nose.
FEND recommends using the mister 3 times a day, each use lasting up to 6 hours. Regular use helps to continually strengthen the mucosal lining, creating a strong filter against small airborne contaminants.

Why I Chose FEND
What drew me to try the product is the fact that my youngest son has asthma. He was officially diagnosed just last fall, during a scary hospital admission. Since then, we’ve been paying closer attention to the air quality in our home, for the safety of my son and our family as a whole.
When I read about FEND and its ability to strengthen the upper airways’ natural ability to clean and filter the air we breathe, I knew we had to try it. For those who have asthma, clean air is essential. So I thought FEND would be a great, non-medical asset in our fight for better breathing quality at home.*
*FEND does not claim to medically help asthma patients. This is simply my reasoning for trying the product.
On that note, I want to emphasize that FEND is a completely drug-free, calcium-enriched saline solution, making it perfectly safe for children to use.
My Experience with FEND
Because the air quality affects my son’s breathing ability more than anyone else in the family, he’s been using FEND daily. The misting device is super easy to use and the mist that comes out is cool, so it’s almost like a few seconds of cool down for him. While there’s no way for me to see what’s happening in his upper respiratory airways, so far he’s gone without any breathing issues.
And since FEND is small and portable, it will be easy for my son to take to school and use during the day, making it my on-the-go solution to clean breathing. No matter where we go, I know my son has the ability to better filter the air he breathes.
