    Nausea and its many causes

    This is an objective, independently written product review on TravelRite® tablets to support, relieve and prevent nausea, dizziness and vertigo – the natural way.

    As we travel through life, we find ourselves on many different journeys. No matter what path you are on or the choice of transport, say no to nausea! Participate fully in life with TravelRite® as your companion.

    There are multiple pathways and causes of nausea and vomiting. Specific areas in the brain and a complex interaction of vagal sensory and motor neurons to the cortex, hypothalamus, and limbic regions plays a role in how the brain perceives nausea. Multiple chemoreceptors are involved in these pathways.

    Causes may be as simple as the body's defence against an ingested toxin (also prescription medication), anaesthesia, stress and/or fear, pregnancy, alcohol excess, psychiatric disorders and a complex association set of signals activated by motion or position.

    Indications for the treatment of acute onset nausea requires astute evaluation by your medical doctor. Do not overlook surgical emergencies such as small bowel obstructions, perforated viscus, and acute appendicitis, among others.

    Chronic nausea is more likely to be multi-factorial and might be more challenging to treat.

    Travelrite ingredients

    1. Gingerol – the major constituents of fresh ginger

    Generally used to alleviate nausea, cramping, bloating and indigestion, the spice ginger works by stimulating digestive enzyme secretions in the gut.1

    This popular traditional medicine plant helps to relax the smooth muscles in your gut lining and assists with digestion by speeding up the movement of food in the intestinal tract.2 Gut mobility can be problematic especially in people with diabetes, and can cause heartburn and stomach discomfort after meals. Prescription medication to increase muscle contractions in the upper digestive tract, has numerous and serious side effects.3

    Studies have shown ginger to be one of the most effective remedies in treating symptoms of nausea and vomiting caused by pregnancy4,5 and chemotherapy.6,7 The effectiveness of ginger in preventing vomiting, has been attributed to its carminative effect, which helps to break up and expel intestinal gas.

    Why not just eat fresh ginger?

    The oleoresin (oily resin) from the roots of ginger (gingerol) is a bioactive component of ginger – the primary pungent ingredient. This oily resin is reduced in dry ginger.9 The medicinal, chemical, and pharmacological properties of gingerol have been extensively studied and reviewed as a preventive and therapeutic agent. It is proven effective in preventing and treating a variety of pathologic conditions, including nausea and vomiting.10

    Ginger protects and relieves more than just nausea

    As a bonus, gingerol contains a very high level (3.85 mmol/100 g) of total antioxidants, surpassed only by pomegranate and some types of berries.11  But wait – it gets even better!

    Hang over cure

    Should you come to experience the ill effects of too much alcohol, ginger has shown to be a natural hang over cure. The effect of alcohol on the liver related antioxidant enzyme system improved with ginger intake. Ginger plays a protective role against ethanol induced hepatotoxicity (damaged liver cells).12

    Radio-protective effects

    Ginger extract has been reported to exert radio-protective effects in mice exposed to gamma radiation (electromagnetic radiation).13 Gingerol pre-treatment decreases oxidative stress induced by ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation – the shorter wavelength from the sun, associated with skin burning. So take TravelRite® when you plan on spending a long time in the sun.

    Air travel exposes travellers to low levels of radiation

    When flying, we are exposed to ionizing radiation, but the dose is low and depends on a few factors: duration, altitude and latitude. The farther north or south you are from the Equator, the more radiation you will receive.

    Medical imaging

    Ginger has been shown to reduce the post-radiation inflammatory response and delays cellular division caused by of medical imaging (ionizing radiation to generate images), allowing more time for cells to repair.14 Ginger is effective at decreasing the side effects of radiation therapy, even in low doses. Side effects of radiation includes direct DNA damage, cell death, tissue injury, malformations in an embryo or fetus and cancer.

    2. Peppermint Leaf Extract

    In folk medicine, according to WHO monographs, peppermint has been used for centuries in European countries, as a carminative herbal medicine, to treat diarrhoea and nausea.15

    In the Indian Materia Medica (Nadkarni’s 1982), infused peppermint leaves are used in cases of vomiting.

    According to the American Cancer Society’s, peppermint extract helps to control nausea after surgery. Peppermint also reduces nausea caused by chemotherapy.16

    3. Lemon Bioflavonoids Extract

    Bioflavonoids belong to a larger group of compounds called polyphenols and are potent antioxidants. It helps with saliva production in the mouth and relieves indigestion and  acidity. Lemon contains a neutralizing acid which forms bicarbonate compounds that helps to relieve nausea.17
