Hayfever Relief Treatment
Botanica Hayfever Gel has been developed by New Zealand Pharmacology Ltd as a result of extensive research since 1999, conducted in our research facilities in New Zealand and Germany. Our focus is on biological, non toxic, drug-free control of the body’s immune response to airborne allergens, histamine production and hayfever symptoms.
Modes of Action
- Delivers quercetin, bromelain and vitamin C to the nasal mucosa
- Disrupts mast cells, inhibiting histamine production
- Effect on all hayfever symptoms is fast and effective
- No side effects
- Enhances immune response to airborne allergens associated with hayfever
- Soothes ad moisturises the nasal membrane
- Creates a barrier protecting the immune system from airborne allergens
Quercetin, Bromelian and Vitamin C
Quercetin is a major dietary flavonoid, found in many common foods including apples and brasicas. Along with a variety of uses it is a powerful anti-inflammatory due to its effects on inflammation causing enzymes, it is anti-viral, inhibits tumor growth and protects the intestinal wall. Of particular interest is quercetin’s inhibition of histamine release by mast cells. The release of histamine from nasal mast cells causes all the symptoms of hayfever. Quercetin, bromelain, an enzyme from pineapple, and vitamin C are synergistic in their effect on nasal mast cell release of histamine.
There is a lot of data on Quercetin’s effects on histamine production, the data below inspired further work by New Zealand Pharmacology Ltd and others to create a useful treatment for hayfever.

“Its very good for hay fever but we also use it for sinus and dryness in the nose.”
Dan, Colorado, USA
“I LOVE IT! I have always liked fennel so that helps, but now I look forward to applying the cream just for a fennel hit! I may be borderline addicted.
It has been my pleasure to spread the word to friends and family and anyone who happens to be around when I am discussing it. I am of a mind that it definitely helps reduce my reaction to perfumes and the chemical reactions I have to deal with.
Apparently Silver Birch causes misery to a good few Wanaka folk…I have suggested they try your gel.”
