No-Jet-Lag brochure: A remedy to counter jet-lag

Jetlag is the curse of modern jet travel, resulting in loss of working efficiency and holiday enjoyment, often for days after arrival.

Jetlag can include a large range of effects from long-haul travel, incuding short-term symptoms such as dehydration and discomfort of legs and feet, and others which continue for days after the flight, such as fatigue, disorientation, lack of concentration and motivation, and broken sleep.

No-Jet-Lag, a unique homeopathic remedy, offers a safe and easy solution. Its effectiveness has been proven scientifically and is recognised internationally by business travellers, sports teams, tourist operators and airline personnel.

Who suffers from jetlag?

A major US study, by The Upjohn Company in cooperation with United Airlines and British Airways, showed as many as 94% of long distance travellers suffer from the effects of jet-lag, and 45% consider their symptoms severely bothersome.

A 1994 survey of flight attendants on international routes showed a similar picture, with 96% of respondents saying they suffered from jetlag despite being accustomed to long-haul travel. Specifically 90% suffered from tiredness after arrival, 73% from dehydration, 94% experienced lack of energy and motivation, and 93% reported broken sleep after arrival.

Anecdotal evidence indicates jetlag also makes travellers more susceptible to colds, flu and stomach upsets.

What causes jetlag?

It hardly seems possible that so many problems could result from merely travelling in an aircraft, but as the survey of flight attendants shows, it affects even the professionals. It is worse for passengers, partly because they are confined in their seats for long periods in flight.

The greatest cause of jetlag is rapid transit across world time zones. The time difference disrupts our body clock (circadian rhythm). This in turn affects body temperature, heartbeat, blood pressure and physiological patterns, leading to disorientation and mental and physical fatigue.

Altitude and pressure changes at each landing and take-off also upset body systems, and although airliner cabins are pressurised, these changes are a significant cause of jet-lag.

In addition, sitting still for long periods in flight causes discomfort and possible swelling of the legs and feet, and the dry atmosphere in airliner cabins can cause body dehydration.

The effects of jetlag may be made worse by excessive eating and consumption of alcohol in flight, by loss of sleep, and also by being tired or not in good condition before the flight, although these are not specifically causes of jet-lag.

Take No-Jet-Lag and feel fresher after arrival

No-Jet-Lag is a unique product, specially formulated and rigorously tested to alleviate jet-lag. In the 1994 survey of international flight attendants, 75% of respondents said No-Jet-Lag was either good or very good in countering the effects of jet-lag.

An important advantage of No-Jet-Lag is that it contains only homeopathic remedies. Because of the small dilutions used, these remedies do not produce side-effects.

No-Jet-Lag can be used with all other types of medication. It can be taken by travellers of all ages.

Like all homeopathic remedies, it is most effective if taken separately from meals, but this is not essential. It is recognised that long-haul passengers often sleep for long periods in flight and wake only for meals and stopovers, so No-Jet-Lag has been formulated to ensure it will be effective even if taken with meals, including coffee.

No-Jet-Lag does not counter the effects of alcohol, lack of sleep, or pre-existing medical conditions.

It is recommended that in addition to taking No-Jet-Lag passengers adopt other sensible measures to help arrive at their destination in the best possible shape. These include not over-eating in flight, limiting alcohol consumption, drinking plenty of non-alcoholic fluids (especially water), putting feet up if there is room, and taking any opportunity in flight or during ground stops to walk and do stretching exercises. And try to be in good condition before starting out.

No-Jet-Lag for business, tourism, sport

The dangers of trying to undertake important business engagements while suffering jetlag are well known. Now with No-Jet-Lag business people can step off the plane and attend meetings in much better shape than before. They no longer need to allow time to rest and re-orient themselves on arrival at a distant destination.

Holiday travellers can now look forward to enjoying every day of their vacation, and on returning home can step back into their lives without taking days off to recover from jet-lag.

Sports competitors who have traditionally had to allow a week or more to regain their level of performance after travel can now commence training immediately and regain their peak much faster.

Among users of No-Jet-Lag are leading sportsmen and women including Olympic athletes and members of the All Black rugby team and the Kiwi rugby league team. Some team doctors specifically recommend the use of No-Jet-Lag.

No-Jet-Lag has passed official tests to Olympic standards as being free from any traces of banned drugs. No-Jet-Lag is listed by the US Food and Drug Administration for over-the-counter sale in the United States.

No-Jet-Lag comes in the form of pleasant chewable tablets. It does not need to be taken prior to travel, and does not conflict with other medication.

What users say about No-Jet-Lag

Many users have written to us reporting on their experience with No-Jet-Lag. Following are extracts from just a few:

Dr Wayne Morris, team doctor with the New Zealand rugby league team touring Britain, reported that all members of the team found No-Jet-Lag to be extremely beneficial and wrote:
"I have no hesitation at all in recommending it to anybody travelling overseas. It is a superb product. Members of the team were also drug tested by the Great Britain Sports Drug Testing Agency, and No-Jet-Lag did not result in any interference with urine drug testing results."

A travel agent wrote:
"I am delighted to report that we are receiving excellent feedback from our clients who have tried No-Jet-Lag ... Also several of the staff have tried No-Jet-Lag and highly recommend it."

A Hong Kong businessman:
"My job requires me to travel extensively from Vancouver where I live to Hong Kong, Moscow, and other European and US cities. You can imagine the problem I had with jet-lag...I have hundreds of associates who have the same problem. Now that they hear about my experience they jumped up in the air and ask for No-Jet-Lag."

A tour escort:
"I am an international tour escort and I have had the pleasure of using No-Jet-Lag tablets. I have been recommending them to my clients, who are nearly all senior citizens, and they too report excellent results. Those who did take No-Jet-Lag were definitely more alert on arrival after our long-haul flights."

Directions for Taking No-Jet-Lag

Taking No-Jet-Lag is easy and convenient. Chew one tablet each time your plane takes off and each time it lands, even if you are not disembarking, to counter the effects of pressure changes, and one every two hours while flying to counter the effects of long-haul flight. However, intervals of up to four hours between tablets are acceptable if sleeping in flight. No-Jet-Lag is best taken separately from meals, but this is not essential. It can be taken with other types of medication.

Each pack of No-Jet-Lag contains 32 tablets, usually enough for over 50 hours of flying (equivalent to a round-the-world trip).

No-Jet-Lag is available from outlets in Australia, Asia, Europe and North America.
