JET EASE: PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS
Jet Ease is available in 32-tablet strip packet and is packaged in premises inspected by a regulatory authority to ensure the premises meet the standard grade of hygiene, class one.
Jet Ease is manufactured according to the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States, (HPUS).
Each 340mg tablet contains five homeopathic remedies effective in countering the effects of jet lag. Each pack contains enough tablets for an average round-the-world itinerary. (50 hours of flying)
Jet lag is a complex condition which occurs when flying long distances. The main, but not the only cause, is crossing time zones, which causes circadian dysrhythmia. Other causes are dehydration and problems from pressurized cabins (pressure equivalent to 8,000 feet), lack of fresh air, lack of exercise and loss of quality sleep.
One tablet of Jet Ease should be taken at the time of each take-off, another every two hours in flight, and another after each landing (including at intermediate stops). During long flights, the two-hour intervals may be extended if the user is sleeping.
WARNING AND PRECAUTIONS
Jet Ease can be used by travellers of all ages. If a user already suffers from a major medical problem, normal caution should be exercised in flying on long journeys. If after arrival the symptoms of jet lag continue, professional help should be sought. Jet Ease does not counter the effects of existing medical disorders when travelling by air, or the effects of alcohol or general exhaustion. Use only as directed. If symtoms persist see your doctor/health care professional
FLYING WHILE PREGNANT
If possible flying while pregnant should be avoided. Pregnancy creates extra fluid and changes to this extra fluid while flying can make the pregnant traveler uncomfortable. Reports from pregnant travelers suggest these changes can be so severe they think something major is wrong and sometimes it is.
DOSAGE FOR CHILDREN
Children under three years do not suffer from jet lag, but they need plenty of fluid frequently to reduce dehydration. Irritability is one of the leading symptoms of jet lag and for children aged between 4-12 years one tablet every four hours is suitable. (Compared with the adult dose of one tablet every two hours.)
Like other homeopathic remedies, Jet Ease is most effective when taken separately from food and drink, but has been specially formulated so that it may if necessary be taken in association with food and/or drink, i.e. coffee.
X-RAYS, COFFEE, MINT & HOMEOPATHIC PRODUCTS
Some poorly manufactured homeopathic products are harmed by exposure to x-rays, coffee or aromatic products like mint. Jet Ease does not fit into this category. It has been robustly manufactured to ensure that it is effective when exposed to either x-rays or coffee or mint. Jet Ease was exposed to x-rays during the trip and the trialists drank coffee while flying during the trial.
