Nausea and its many causes
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.
What makes TravelRite® effective?
TravelRite® is scientifically formulated using a combination of four botanical extracts:
- 50 mg Gingerol (Each tablet contains 20% high-quality standardised* extract)

*Delivers exactly what you need with every dose. 20% gingerol is equal to 500 mg dried ginger extract.
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.8
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
Ginger extract has been reported to exert radioprotective 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.
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.
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
Parsley has been used as a natural remedy to settle the stomach, protect the liver, for the relief of acid reflux and a spasmolytic. Traditionally parsley has been used to relieve nausea and aid in digestion. Parsley is an important modern medicinal plant, requiring further studies as it exhibits antibacterial and antifungal activities. Traditionally parsley was used as a carminative to decrease flatulence and colic pain.
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
