More than 3 million people around the world travel on commercial aircraft every day with many resigned to battling their body clocks and fatigue after traveling long distances for work or play.
Now the stars heading for Los Angeles for Hollywood’s biggest night will be among the first in America to be given the opportunity to combat jet lag and travel fatigue using the new My Flight Pack, a physiologically tailored 3-step powdered hydration solution that helps conquer symptoms related to long air journeys.
My Flight Pack will be included in the Distinctive Assets ‘goodie’ bags gifted each year to nominees in the major acting and directing categories, including Renee Zellweger, Charlize Theron, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.
My Flight Pack is already a hit with professional US sports teams who have been testing it out on players who often have to fly thousands of miles between games. Grammy-nominated DJ Steve Aoki – the world’s most traveled musician, according to the Guinness Book of Records - has also spoken about how it has helped him. Now the product is available worldwide.
The breakthrough My Flight Pack formula was devised by top sports and TV chef Hannah Grant, famous for her Emmy-winning Amazon Prime cooking show ‘Eat, Race, Win,’ and leading nutrition scientist Dr Stacy Sims, who used a cutting-edge combination of adaptogens and micro-nutrients to prompt the body into caring for itself.
‘The air inside the cabin is three times as dry as the Sahara Desert, with a relative air humidity between 5-15%,’ explained Grant. ‘With a lower passenger density, business class is actually the driest place in the aircraft. This results in significant dehydration for most passengers. Something we really wanted to overcome,’ she added.
“We’re absolutely thrilled about taking part in this historic Hollywood celebration and surely, all participants will now get a chance to return from the party rested, energized and ready to turn in the next world-class performance.”
Grant - author of ‘The Grand Tour Cookbook’ and ‘Eat, Race, Win’ - and Sims were both heavily involved in the world cycling scene when they met at the Tour de France in 2013 and soon became fascinated by the search for a ‘cure’ for travel fatigue and its debilitating effects on the body.
‘Many don’t realize that the discomfort they experience during and after long-haul flights are due to both bad quality sleep and the dehydrating effects from the airplane cabin,’ said Carl-Emil von Arenstorff, co-founder of ERW, the Danish company behind My Flight Pack. “By combining trailblazing sports science with world-class culinary expertise, we’ve developed a solution that successfully tackles jet lag and travel fatigue through hydration.’
