Protex-H: What is Jet Lag?

What is jet lag?

Jet Lag occurs when you travel to a new time zone at a faster rate than your body clock can adjust. The main body clock is under the control of the pineal gland which is modified by daylight patterns, however the main disruptive effects of jet lag are on the physical cycles such as digestion, hormone secretion and the sleep cycle.

The end result of all of these disruptions is, in extreme cases, a zombie-like state where the individual feels disorientated, dizzy, unable to type accurately or drive safely and may suffer digestive or nervous effects. A rule of thumb is that the effects last one day for every hour that the traveller's clock has been changed. These side effects, namely the disruption of the circadian rhythms, all result from cellular stress. Recent surveys, carried out for Bradan Limited by international scientists, have shown that natural Heat Shock Protein (HSP) stimulation, with Protex-H before the journey, can largely remove them.

Will jet lag affect me?

No one is immune to Jet Lag. Experience varies from person to person and also with age, health and physical fitness. Everyone experiences it to some degree however and it can make business meetings or even holidays in the sun very difficult for several days after arrival.

How to prevent Jet Lag

The most effective way to prevent jet lag is to take a Protex-H tablet two hours before your journey, at a rate of one per 10 stone/140lbs/60kg in body-weight, avoiding both citrus drinks and fruit for at least 2 hours before and after taking Protex-H. Each pack contains 12 tablets which is enough for six average doses or six flights.

Please Note: Protex-H has no sedative effects. If you do not sleep on the flight you may still be tired - this is not jet lag.
