Luffa - go natural to tackle hayfever

As we enter into spring, we can all agree that the hayfever season has arrived with a bang this year. For many, symptoms have appeared much earlier as a result of milder temperatures and soaring pollen levels.

For those struggling to manage their tricky allergic symptoms, they'll unsurprisingly be looking for effective solutions. Worryingly, hayfever symptoms seem to be getting worse; they seem to be affecting a wider range of people, with younger children and adults who have never previously been bothered by it suddenly experiencing symptoms. Symptoms also seem to be coming thicker and faster than ever!

As our immune system overreacts to harmless molecules such as pollen, an inflammatory cascade kicks off. As a result, the chemical histamine is released and some of the common symptoms include:

• Itchiness! A classic symptom of allergic responses. Typically affecting the nose, throat, eyes and skin.

• Excess mucous which can give rise to a blocked nose, blocked up ears or post nasal drip.

• Inflammation causing swelling, redness and irritation.

To help manage some of the symptoms of hayfever, A. Vogel have a range of products to help

Pollinosan Hayfever tablets 

Probably the first thing to say here is that this product is registered with MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). This means that unlike most supplements, where the manufacture has to be careful NOT to make any medical claims, for registered products, those claims can be made if it is accepted that they are correct. This product:

  • Hayfever remedy
  • May also be used for allergic rhinitis
  • Non-drowsy - does not affect ability to drive or use machines
  • Can be used with other hayfever remedies
  • No restriction on use with asthma
  • Suitable for children over 12 years

It can be used to help treat allergies to grass or tree pollen (hayfever), as well as allergies to dust, animals and pets (allergic rhinitis) – both conditions give rise to symptoms such as itching and watery eyes, sneezing, tickly nose or throat and a blocked nose. Pollinosan tablets can be used together with Pollinosan Luffa Nasal Spray.


  • The key advantage to using Luffa is having a more natural option for those who find that other, conventional treatments leave them with unwanted side effects such as feeling drowsy or unpredictable interactions with alcohol. Second generation antihistamines are less sedating, but can be expensive. Remedies such as this don't cause drowsiness, don't interact with alcohol and are relatively inexpensive. What's more, it's swiftly absorbed and therefore fast-acting, and perfect for people with poor digestive abilities who might not benefit so easily from tablets.
  • The herb Luffa is naturally anti-inflammatory and has a desensitising action on the mucous membranes lining our nose, eyes and respiratory tract, which are most affected by hayfever. As Pollinosan Hayfever tablets help tackle all the main hayfever symptoms it is not necessary for people with multiple symptoms to buy several different remedies.
  • Pollinsan can be used alongside conventional anti-histamines if need be, especially useful during the transition period between conventional and more natural remedies.
  • Pollinsan's ingredients won't show up in blood tests, for consumers worried about sporting activities.
  • For students or manual workers in need of nasal sprays which aren't sedating, Luffa sprays may be more suitable, for consumers worried about sporting activities.
