Allergostop – breach ruling

Posted 31 January 2014

This ASA ruling is in response to a breach complaint arguing that AllergoStop continues to make unsubstantiated claims for its product – contrary to the previous ruling. The complainant makes the point that the claims are contrary to known science and knowledge of allergy.

At the time, the respondent offered to amend its advertising to state that the product “may” assist, as opposed to that it does assist.

    Proof that it works? The best proof there is, is personal experience. I for one do not care HOW it works. But THAT it worked. Where mind you all the steroid nose sprays and antihistamines and cortisone DID NOT work. My poor four year old suffered from hayfever and recurrent sinus infections constantly. Antibiotics was prescribed about every three weeks. Then we did Allergostop. It has been almost two years. Antibiotics: once. Nasal spray and antihistamine: from time to time. So no he is not cured. But a drastic improvement. That is proof enough for me.
