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
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
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
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

specially formulated and rigorously tested to alleviate jet-lag. In the
1994 survey of international flight attendants, 75% of respondents said

An important advantage of No-Jet-Lag

Because of the small dilutions used, these remedies do not produce side-effects.
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.
does not counter the
effects of alcohol, lack of sleep, or pre-existing medical conditions.
It is recommended that in addition to taking
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
No-Jet-Lag for business, tourism, sport
The dangers of trying to undertake important business engagements while
suffering jetlag are well known. Now with
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
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.

What users say about No-Jet-Lag
Many users have written to us reporting on their experience with
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
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.
