What is Weyland Jetlag?
Weyland Jetlag is a short acting supplement that can be taken to reduce the symptoms of jet lag. It is designed to restore the biological clock in order to reduce the occurrence of a sleep disturbance. In this review of Weyland Jetlag, we determine how helpful the ingredients are and if the customer support provided by this manufacturer is ideal.
- Vitamin B6
- Green Tea Leaf Extract
- Lemon Balm Leaf
- Passionflower Herb
- Schisandra Extract
- Valerian Root
In order to regulate the chemical signals in the body that enhance or inhibit the feeling of sleepiness, the body has a biological clock built into the brain. This clock releases the relevant signals at the right times so that you get a regular sleep pattern. But this process is disturbed when crossing time zones. All of the ingredients present in this supplement, act in the pathways in the brain that control sleep in order to restore a regular sleep cycle.
Niacin causes the release of a special amino acid in the brain called gamma-aminobutyric acid. This amino acid causes a reduction in brain activity by reducing the electrical activity in the brain cells. Vitamin B6 also has relaxing effects.
The next five ingredients listed – calcium, magnesium, zinc, sodium and potassium, are all vital components of electrical and chemical signaling between brain cells. Adequate levels of them help to facilitate the brain signaling that occurs to reset the biological clock.
It is difficult to ascertain the function of the green tea leaf extract in the supplement because the manufacturer does not provide reasons for their choices. Green tea leaf extract contains caffeine which could counteract the effects of the relaxing substances in this product.
L-theanine and melatonin have similar effects to gamma-aminobutyric acid. Melatonin is actually the natural sleep hormone that controls the sleep wake cycle known as the circadian rhythm.
The remainder of the ingredients are plant extracts which contain compounds known to induce relaxation and to promote sleep.
Three capsules should be taken on an empty stomach about 12 hours before the morning that you arrive at your final destination. It is not recommended to take more than 3 capsules within a 24-hour period.
What is the Cost?
A package of 45 capsules can be purchased online via the manufacturer for $19.95. Subscribing for a monthly order can earn a customer a 10% discount. The price does not include shipping and taxes.
Weyland offers a complete money back guarantee that includes the shipping cost for a maximum of one bottle per customer. What the manufacturer fails to say in the product description is that this guarantee is only valid for unopened products according to the returns policy. The guarantee is valid for 60 days.
Our Final Review of Weyland Jetlag
We believe that the ingredients included in this product are scientifically sound (except for one ingredient, the green tea extract) and that this product is offered at a low price. We find that the customer support of this manufacturer is severely lacking however. It appears that the manufacturer specifically tries to hide the fact that the guarantee is only valid for products which have not been used. We therefore find this product to be a risky purchase and suggest customers look elsewhere for better products.
