HayMax has undergone two independent studies at the National Pollen and Aerobiology Research Unit (NPARU- The UK’s leading Authority on Airborne Allergens), two surveys by Allergy UK (the leading UK allergy charity) and one trial by HayMax at the very beginning…
Ar y dudalen hon fe welwch crynodeb o bob arolwg ac astudio, and a link for downloading the complete reports. They are quite long, but make a fascinating read!
Survey on HayMax, 2015.
In 2015, Allergy UK conducted a survey called ‘The Impact of Hay Fever, a Survey by Allergy UK, Surveying the Effectiveness of HayMax Allergen Barrier Balm’. The first part of the survey was about the respondents hay fever symptoms, and the second half asked respondents to try HayMax and answer a series of questions post trial.
Key survey finding: When asked if overall HayMax worked, 80% said ‘Yes’ (134/166 respondents).
There are lots more interesting statistics in the report, which can be downloaded using the link below.
Survey on HayMax, 2014.
In 2014, Allergy UK conducted a survey called ‘Are you suffering from seasonal allergic rhinitis (clefyd y gwair)? – Surveying the effectiveness of HayMax allergen barrier balm.
As with the 2015 survey, the first half of the survey was to help us better understand the respondents symptoms, and the second half was completed after trialling HayMax, either on themselves or on their children. The results were fantastic.
Key survey finding: 78% said that HayMax helped some or all of their symptoms (56/73).
This further study looked at whether HayMax can trap indoor and outdoor airborne particles such as pollens in a more controlled environment. The study required healthy volunteers who did not suffer from allergic rhinitis to visit NPARU 4 times over a 3 week period.
Key trial finding: HayMax traps over a third of pollen before it enters the body, in addition to dust mite allergens and pet dander.
Yr Athro Jean Emberlin, cyfarwyddwr yr Uned Ymchwil Aerobiology Paill Cenedlaethol a (NPARU) at the University of Worcester completed independent research on HayMax™ during the peak grass pollen season in 2009.
The study aimed to assess the number of pollen grains that are trapped by HayMax balm when applied in a standard manner to the rim and the inside of nostrils compared with the amount deposited on uncoated nostrils.
Key trial finding: The application of HayMax™ to the lower part and rim of the nostrils does trap significantly more pollen than an uncoated nostril.
(They are called ‘confidential’ adroddiadau, but don’t worry, rydym yn dewis eu rhannu gyda chi!).
Other interesting trials!
Moscow Treialon y Wladwriaeth- “Efficacy of pollen blocker cream in the treatment of allergic rhinitis“
This was a double-blind placebo controlled trial conducted to show the efficacy of pollen barriers. This was not a trial conducted on HayMax, but it is an interesting study of a similar type of product.

Mae ein treialon cyntaf! We like testing on humans…
We ran a trial of HayMax™ in July, Awst a Medi 2004.
Mae tua 700 pobl (Max Wiseberg’s contact list at his previous business) were emailed and offered free product in exchange for genuine and honest answers in a questionnaire. Apart from 2, ymatebwyr yn bobl nad oeddent yn gwybod Max, who had had the email passed on to them by Max’s contact.
Roedd hwn yn arbrawf syml heb unrhyw grĹµp rheoli a dim plasebo ac nid oedd gyhoeddi ac ni ellid ei ystyried i fod yn unrhyw fath o dreial clinigol. It was done in order to establish that the product worked for people other than its inventor and that it might be marketable.
Cyfrif paill yn uchel yn rheolaidd yn ystod y treial.
Gofynnwyd iddynt roi sgĂ´r ar raddfa o 1 i 5:
- 5; Gweithio yn wych. Dim disian, dim llid o lygaid
- 4: Gweithio'n dda. Tisian achlysurol a / neu llid y llygaid
- 3: Gweithio: Gostyngiad mewn effeithiau. Ond yn dal i gael pyliau o tisian ac ati.
- 2: Gweithio Prin: Dal i brofi y rhan fwyaf o'r effeithiau.
- 1: Didn’t work: Dim help o gwbl. Yn union fel ofnadwy ag erioed.
Dywedodd yr holl ymatebwyr yn gweithio a rhoi arwydd o 3 neu well.
All respondents who had the opportunity to try HayMax™ during their allergic season reported that HayMax™ worked.
There were no reported side effects.
HayMax™ would like to conduct proper clinical trials in the future, pryd y bydd cyllid yn caniatĂˇu.
