It’s spring and with all the trees out in blossom, it’s that time of year again when many golfers with hay fever will be maxing out on the pollen. And it’s not a trivial matter if you’re a sufferer – in some cases it can be so debilitating that you might not even feel like going out. It can also seriously affect your enjoyment – no-one wants to be sneezing just when they’ve about to make an important putt or their opponent is about play a shot. HayMax organic allergen barrier balm helps to trap all types of tree pollen and is perfect for golfers because it’s drug-free and non-drowsy, so won’t affect your performance on the course.
Many trees produce allergy causing pollen; here’s a quick run-down of the main culprits…
Birch – This takes top spot because it’s probably the most problematic tree of them all for hay fever sufferers and its pollen can often be seen in large yellow clouds in both towns and countryside.
Hazel – This one makes tonnes of pollen – you have been warned. Hazel trees can live for hundreds of years and are found in birch and oak woodlands as well as areas of scrub and hedgerow.
Willow – A total headache for the hay fever sufferer as it releases highly allergenic pollen. And as there are nearly twenty native willow varieties in the UK, it’s going to be a tricky one to avoid.
Alder – Their pollen is moderate to high. Alder trees are often found by river banks, where the exposed roots in the water can provide excellent hiding places for small fish and critters.
Elm – Pollen from these trees is wind pollinated, although elms can also pollinate flowers from the same tree.
The bad news is that all these trees will be blaring out most of their pollen at the same time, in March and April. And as 25% of UK hay fever sufferers are allergic to tree pollen, it’s going to affect around 3 million people – not a pleasant experience if you’re on the course.
A great way to cope with this pollen onslaught is to trap the pollen before it gets in the body and starts to cause a reaction. HayMax organic allergen barrier balm is designed to do just that. Just a small amount of HayMax applied around the rim of the nostrils and the bones of the eyes (but not in the eye) can help. It’s backed up by science; HayMax has been proven to trap over 1/3 of pollen grains before they enter the body . This can help keep the sufferer below their trigger level for longer. And 80% of people say HayMax works .
Jackie Morgan comments, “Words alone cannot express what a difference HayMax has made to my lifestyle and well being…I use HayMax on a daily basis and rarely sneeze or cough anymore. Even in the bush or on the golf course! I would, and do, highly recommend HayMax to anyone…”
HayMax is talked about by doctors in the media, it’s been used successfully by two Olympic athletes and glamorous Hollyoaks actress, Nadine Mulkerrin has been posting about it on Instagram. It has also attained The Allergy Friendly Product Award from leading national patient charity Allergy UK, awarded to products that are potentially of benefit to people affected by allergy, asthma, or sensitivity and are unlikely to cause a reaction. It is 100% natural, certified organic by the Soil Association and approved by the Vegetarian Society.
As HayMax is drug-free it is suitable for children and pregnant and breast-feeding women. There are no drowsy side-effects – so, unlike many anti-histamines that people take, it can be used whilst driving and operating machinery, and will not adversely affect performance at work, school, during exams, on the golf course or in other sporting activities.
So if you’d prefer not to Max out on the tree pollen, try HayMax.
