Sci­en­tists at the Rider Boskovic Cen­tre in Za­greb, Croa­tia, for­mu­lated a nat­u­ral, ac­ti­vated as­tra­galus root ex­tract known as Lec­tranal. This herbal medicine has been rig­or­ously tri­aled and tested and found to be able to calm hy­per­sen­si­tive noses.

The re­sults of this re­search were pub­lished in the jour­nal Phy­tother­apy Re­search in 2010. Treat­ment with Lec­tranal re­sulted in an over­all im­prove­ment of nasal al­ler­gies by over 70% af­ter two months of treat­ment. Un­like other gen­eral, non-spe­cific ther­a­pies, Lec­tranal aims pre­cisely at the hy­per­sen­si­tive na­ture of the im­mune sys­tem, which trig­gers nasal symp­toms. With Lec­tranal, the im­mune sys­tem is guided not to over re­act, in­stead per­form nor­mally as it should.

Es­sen­tially, Lec­tranal helps to calm hy­per­sen­si­tive im­mune sys­tems from get­ting out-of-con­trol ev­ery time it meets an al­ler­gen such as dust or tem­per­a­ture changes. As it does this, the pa­tient’s nose will also not hy­per-re­act when in an air-con­di­tioned room. Lec­tranal works dif­fer­ently from drugs such as an­ti­his­tamines, which help dry a runny nose but not aid with the root of the prob­lem. By di­rect­ing the im­mune sys­tem to­wards nor­mal re­sponse and im­part­ing a mem­ory to help it recog­nise harm­less al­ler­gens, Lec­tranal pre­vents the nose from be­ing too sen­si­tive.
