At the end of the study, 83% of the tinospora group had stopped sneezing, and more than 75 % said their noses had stopped running and cleared completely. Another 71% said their noses were no longer itchy.
In the placebo group, just 11% reported less sneezing. While sinuses had cleared in 17%, only 12% recorded itch-free sniffers.
