As to the question “does it work” for hayfever, yes it does… more often than not. The Luffa Tablets and Luffeeel Nasal Spray are suitable for long-term use, there are no side effects such as associated with nasal corticosteroids and antihistamines. The efficacy of Luffeel Tablets for the temporary relief of hayfever symptoms has been researched. In a drug monitoring study, concomitant administration of Luffa compositum Heel Lufeel Nasal Spray and Tablets was rated by over 70 % of 1,090 hay fever patients as either ‘good’ or ‘very good’ therapy. In a randomised, double-blind clinical study of 146 patients suffering from seasonal allergic rhinitis the effectiveness of Luffa Nasal Spray was comared to that of cromolyn sodium* nasal spray over a six week period. Four to eight sprays daily per nostril of Luffa comp.-Heel nasal spray resulted in significant and lasting symptom improvement, equivalent to that of cromolyn sodium. Both medications were well tolerated.
The best way to use Luffeel is 1-2 months BEFORE pollen exposure, dissolve 1 tablet Luffeel under the tongue 3 times daily and DURING 1 tablet 3 times daily plus 1 spray in each nostril 3-5 times daily.
