Women, especially children, elderly people, and pregnant women, benefit from the highly effective upper respiratory-tissue treatment Acqua di Sirmione (Sirmione Thermal water).
The most well known and used nasal solution in Italy, “Acqua di Sirmione”, will now be distributed by Menarini, who recently acquired the Italian market’s commercial rights.
With this agreement, an OTC product with unique properties will be offered by the Florentine company.
Natural Thermal Spa water from the Sirmione Spa, ‘Acqua di Sirmione’, is made exclusively from microbiologically pure and 100% natural water. Besides the treatment of rhinitis, sinusitis, bronchitis and for the cleansing of the mucous membranes of the nose, the product is non-toxic and free from side effects.
A special characteristic of ‘Acqua di Sirmione’ is that it exists only in nature and cannot be artificially re-created. Located at an altitude of over 800 metres up Mount Baldo, the spa waters run to a depth of 2100 metres below sea level. In the process, the waters become enriched with minerals and other unique properties, and the entire process takes more than 20 years to complete.
Giacomo Gnutti, CEO of Sirmione Thermal Spa, a company that specializes in treating respiratory problems, said, “We have entered into an important, long-term partnership with Menarini with the aim of strengthening our position in the pharmacy market with our top product, which has been available since 1994.”
Lucia and Alberto Giovanni Aleotti, Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Menarini Group, declared that ” Acqua di Sirmione is one of the most highly regarded and widely acknowledged thermal spa waters in Italy.” , said, “It is a unique and natural product which we believe is highly beneficial to patients and which we hope to see continue to grow, as evidence of Italian expertise and uniqueness.”
Carlo Sturani, Scientific and Medical Director at the Sirmione Thermal Spa, stated: “The Acqua di Sirmione spa waters combine the characteristics of sulfurous waters, which have anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties, with the properties of salso-bromo-iodic waters, which also have an antiseptic effect. –The numerous actions of the sulphurous salso-bromo-iodic waters documented in scientific research make this product suitable for both inhalation and aerosol treatments in all those cases where patients are affected by upper respiratory infections, particularly children: Acqua di Sirmione clears blocked noses, helps you breathe better and improves the daily cleansing of the respiratory tract. It is possible to achieve all of these goals without significant side effects or interactions with other medicinal products. As a result of its characteristics, Acqua di Sirmione is especially suitable for use on sensitive subjects, such as children. It is useful during pregnancy, for the elderly and for many other purposes, such as hydrating the mucous membranes of the nose before flying.
With the acquisition of the commercialisation rights, Menarini has made an important step in its growth in the OTC sector. The company is improving its position in the OTC sector with longstanding brands such as Vivin C, Sustenium, Fastum, and Enantyum in addition to new products such as Prostamol.
