Pillar Rock USA Corp dba Wake Up Refrehed-JetRyte
Simple bicarbonate effervescent…
Sound simple? It is! Now air travel doesn’t have to involve fatigue, dehydration, anxiety, insomnia, nausea or any of the other symptoms that go along with jet lag.
JetRyte, created by Pillar Rock USA Corporation (PRUSA), is a revolutionary jet lag relief product. This healthy, easy-to-use, bicarbonate effervescent tablet will help air travelers leave the symptoms of jet lag behind by replenishing key nutrients the body loses while flying.
It’s that simple. Drop a JetRyte tablet into any water bottle and in less than two minutes, you’ll have a tasty drink ready to go so you can get on with your travel — feeling yourself!
JetRyte was formulated by a team of expert physicians and chemists to alleviate symptoms of jet lag. And, its bicarbonate effervescent quality makes it easy to carry, ingest and take action. Bicarbonate effervescent tablets once dissolved are completely absorbed in the body, spread quickly throughout the blood stream and are easy on the stomach. These amazing tablets fit into any water bottle and dissolve in two minutes or less.
Sodium, potassium, vitamins B6, B12 and C, magnesium, melatonin and other nutrients are combined with a great-tasting, citrus flavor to alleviate nasty jet lag effects. And, there are no artificial flavors, colors, additional sugar added or calories.
Only JetRyte comes in an bicarbonate effervescent form and acts as a supplement. Competing products offer messy powders or slow-acting pills. Neither of these methods are ideal when traveling. Not only are they inconvenient, but they don’t get the job done quickly.
Unlike the others, JetRyte’s rate of absorption is immediate, it fully dissolves in the stomach and causes no acidity. JetRyte also has no added sugar and is less expensive. For just $6.99/packet online you can get a better product than the competition at $9.99-$12.99/packet.
Finally, PRUSA is currently working with the only laboratory that specializes in bicarbonate effervescent tablet making. The process takes two to three years to develop a new product and they are not taking startup business ventures at this time — meaning we won’t have any competitors for years to come, if ever!
JetRyte has already made great strides:
- Sold in more than 400 airport stores such as Paradise Shops, News & Gifts, Jet Set Market, Everything ASAP, CNBC, On The Go, Pacific Gateway Concessions and others; online at Amazon.com and approved by GNC with availability for order in September 2014. Established Hawaiian distribution too.
- JetRyte has already received FDA Certificate of Free-sale, Canadian Health Ministry issued the NPN product number for Canada and can be exported globally
- JetRyte citrus flavor has already been produced — currently 60,000 packs in inventory
