Research

We are proud of the effectiveness of the Nasaleze products and the positive impact they can make. To help demonstrate this efficacy, we have worked with Professors, Doctors, and Academics from around the globe to conduct over 40 trials. These have been published and presented all over the world.

These studies have reviewed the benefits that Nasaleze products can give to people suffering from allergic rhinitis, the impact on cold prevention, and the ability to protect against Human Coronavirus.

Dr Roger Henderson

Dr Roger Henderson, a Senior GP who has written multiple books and regularly appears on television and radio, has reviewed the supporting research.

"The research that’s been carried out shows that methyl-cellulose powder - the key ingredient in Nasaleze - has been shown to act as a significant barrier against cold viruses and inhaled allergens, such as pollens. It also shows the addition of powdered garlic extract in the Nasaleze Travel and the Nasaleze Cold & Flu Blocker sprays is highly significant in helping to prevent airborne infections whilst people are on the move.

There have been over thirty clinical studies looking at the effectiveness of methyl-cellulose powder in reducing nasal allergy symptoms, and almost the same number analysing its general benefits and safety. The level of research showing the benefits of Nasaleze is not only statistically significant but also backed up by the quality of the studies involved.

These extensive studies - along with the fact that Nasaleze is a drug-free product which can be safely used by everyone, including children and pregnant women - should give added confidence to anyone considering using it. Using Nasaleze regularly not only reduces the risk of catching a cold, but also significantly improves the quality of life of people suffering with allergy-triggered nasal symptoms."

bsaci Taylor and Francis AAIR WAO AAAA Dovepress

"I have done three double-blind placebo controlled clinical trials with Nasaleze and know from these that it is effective in reducing symptoms and has no known side effects. I recommend using Nasaleze as it stops the pollen, spores and other airborne allergens reaching the reactive cells in the nose lining, and so reduces the symptoms of allergic rhinitis including hay fever."
