There are certain professions that require a lot of travel as part of the deal. Hours spent in airport lounges, cramped airplanes filled with the stale breath of hundreds of people and hotel rooms far from home. There is no doubt it can be lucrative, fun and adventurous, but travel for work can also be exhausting, hard on the body and mind. Travellers are often weary beyond the lack of sleep, and their immune systems are pounded by exposure to many foreign pathogens that they constantly have to battle.
Jet lag is a temporary sleep problem that can affect anyone who quickly travels across multiple time zones. Your body has its own internal clock, or circadian rhythms, that signals your body when to stay awake and when to sleep. Jet lag occurs because your body’s clock is still synced to your original time zone, instead of to the time zone where you’ve traveled. The more time zones crossed, the more likely you are to experience jet lag.
Jet lag can cause daytime fatigue, an unwell feeling, difficulty staying alert and gastrointestinal problems. Jet lag is temporary, but it can significantly reduce your vacation or business travel comfort. It can feel a lot like a hangover, and in the same way, can sometimes be alleviated by a ESPRIT IV TRAVEL BOOSTER Drip.
This drip contains a cocktail of all the B Vitamins, Magnesium and moderate to high doses of Vitamin C, suspended in a small 200ml normal saline sachet.
The drip is generally well tolerated, and very popular due to its boost in energy and immunity of those who are depleted in these energy promoting vitamin. It takes approximately 30 minutes to infuse.
B Vitamins play a vital role in impacting energy levels, brain function and overall cellular metabolism. B Vitamin deficiency is linked to symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, loss of appetite and muscle weakness. It is also important in functioning of the immune system.
B Vitamins are water soluble and your body does not store them for long amounts of time. They are essential vitamins to be obtained from many dietary sources. In our modern busy lifestyles where our diets are deficient, stress levels are high and our guts are not very good at absorbing nutrients, many of us suffer from borderline Vitamin B deficiency.
Likewise, Vitamin C is also a water-soluble vitamin with many food sources.
It is essential in, amongst many other things, effective brain functions well as being a potent antioxidant. This means it helps detoxify the body. A build up of toxins contributes to fatigue and ill health. It is essential in good immune system functioning.
Magnesium is an important mineral for your body, and is the 4th most abundant mineral in your body, and every cell contains it (although 60% of it is in your bones). Its main role is as a “helper” or co-factor in many enzyme reactions in your body – actually about 600 reactions that we know of!
It is an essential cofactor in energy production since it helps convert food into energy, helps nervous system function and assists with contraction and relaxation of muscles
The ESPRIT IV TRAVEL BOOSTER Drip combines all these essential ingredients in an IV cocktail that acts as an immediate boost on energy levels in people whose energy depletion is linked to underlying vitamin deficiencies.
For those feeling run down from travelling and if you get ill often and need extra boosting, it may be a good supplement for you to consider.
You can have the drip just before you travel, or in the day or 2 after getting back. This drip may become part of your essential travel plans!
