Protex-H and international travel

Tiredness resulting from alterations to the body's circadian rhythms, including digestion and hormonal activity cycles and the sleep cycle happens to everyone who undertakes international travel. These cycles are not exactly 24 hours long. Each hormone has its own normal cycle of highs and lows, interacting with and influencing the other cycles.

Body temperature, sleepiness, thyroid function, growth hormone, metabolic processes, adrenal hormones, and the sleep hormone melatonin all cycle with daylight. When they are knocked out of synchronisation various cellular stresses result, these are the causes of the side effects of international travel. This is caused by rapid long-distance transmeridian (east–west or west–east) travel by jet aircraft. The results of these insults to the internal cycles may last several days, and a recovery rate of one day per time zone crossed is a fair guideline.

Medical and nutritional scientists working in conjunction with Bradan have carried out a number of controlled trials of Bradan’s Heat Shock Protein Accelerator Protex-H. International flights of more than 5 hours across at least four time zones were made using the product which is an EU approved food additive, for one leg of a journey and not for the return and vice versa.

Experience of more than 100 international travellers with and without Protex-H before flying

Travel Stress results with and without Protex H

The graph above shows the results for over 100 trans-meridian journeys, from the UK to countries including the USA, Canada, Chile, Thailand, Singapore and Australia. These are broken down into East West and West East flights both with and without the use of Protex-H at recommended levels. All were regular travellers and were very familiar with the stress effects on their body after such journeys. These can be quite varied, depending on the amount of time zone alteration, time of day and individual differences. They may include the following: fatigue; incoordination; loss of placing reflex; irregular sleep patterns; insomnia; grogginess; irritability;and disorientation.

With very few exceptions the test set of travellers experienced great relief from these effects if they took Protex-H before travelling. The reason for the smaller number travelling without Protex-H was that, where users had experienced the benefits on a flight out they were reluctant not to take it for the return flight.

Regular users now include scientific researchers and a wide variety of businessmen and professional and amateur athletes.
