It’s the start of the peak of the tree pollen season, especially for birch, alder, elm and willow. Ash, plane and oak pollen is also around at this time, making it a misery for the UK’s hay fever sufferers. However, you don’t have to be stumped by tree pollen.
One natural alternative to try is HayMax, an allergen barrier balm proven to help trap the pollen before it can get in the body and cause those unpleasant symptoms.
HayMax is a 100 per cent natural, organic drug-free allergen barrier balm for hay fever and airborne allergy sufferers (sometimes referred to as a nasal balm). It is applied around the rim of the nostrils and the bones of the eyes (eye sockets). It has been proven to reduce dust and pet allergens and trap more than a third of pollen before they enter the body.
HayMax is made from a blend of beeswax and seed oils, to which essential oils or aloe vera leaf juice extracts are added to create additional varieties of the original version, HayMax Pure, for added choice and to suit personal preferences. There is a choice of five varieties: Pure, Aloe Vera, Lavender, Frankincense, and Kids. Each works in exactly the same way; by restricting the amount of dust, pet allergens and pollen that get into the body. All you do is wipe the balm onto the base of your nostrils and around your eyes.
HayMax has undergone two independent studies at the National Pollen and Aerobiology Research Unit – the UK’s leading authority on airborne allergen1,2, two surveys by Allergy UK (the leading national charity providing support, advice and information for those living with allergic disease)3,4 and one trial by HayMax at the very beginning.
Independent university studies show that HayMax traps significantly more pollen than an uncoated nostril, and traps all types of grass and tree pollen1 and that HayMax traps over a third of pollen before it enters the body, in addition to dust mite allergens and pet dander2. In an independent survey by Allergy UK, 80 per cent of people said HayMax works, 94 per cent found HayMax quick to be effective, 44 per cent said that it worked immediately and a further 35 per cent said that it worked within an hour or two4.
HayMax organic drug-free allergen barrier balms is £8.49 per pot and are available from independent chemists, pharmacists and health stores.
