NO JET-LAG™ Technical Specifications

No Jet-Lag is available in 32-tablet strip packet and is manufactured in accordance with WHO good manufacturing practice with 6-monthly audits by a regulatory government department.

No Jet-Lag is manufactured according to the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States, (HPUS).

No Jet-Lag is listed with the FDA for over the counter sales in the United States.

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. (40 hours of flying)

Indications
  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.
Dosage
  One tablet of No Jet-Lag should be taken at the time of each takeoff, 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.
Warnings and Precautions
  No Jet-Lag 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. No Jet-Lag does not counter the effects of existing medical disorders when travelling by air, or the effects of alcohol or general exhaustion.
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 traveller uncomfortable. Reports from pregnant travellers suggest these changes can be so severe they think something major is wrong and sometimes it is. Because of the very small concentration of ingredients in No Jet-Lag it is safe to use while pregnant when flying internationally.
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.
Interactions
  No Jet-Lag may be taken with any other medication. Like other homeopathic remedies, No Jet-Lag 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.
Adverse Effects
  With the minute doses involved there is little possibility of adverse effects. There has never been any recorded adverse effect from homeopathic remedies above 12C. All remedies used in No Jet-Lag are 30C, well above the 12C limit.
Overdosage
  Should you take more No Jet-Lag than recommended, no harmful side effects should be expected, owing to the minute dilutions of active ingredients employed in homeopathic preparations.
X-rays, Coffee, Mint and Homeopathic Products
  Some poorly manufactured homeopathic products are harmed by exposure to x-rays, coffee or aromatic products like mint. No Jet-Lag 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.
