Inflight Elixir is the superfood drink mix for frequent flyers. Drink your way to your healthiest flight with a megadose of travel-supporting ingredients: Coconut water crystals to restore and enhance hydration, Camu Camu powder to boost immunity, Chlorella to support exposure to cosmic radiation, Papaya powder to prevent bloating, Goji Berry powder to improve circulation, and Tart Cherry powder to manage jet lag.
How to use:
Mix one scoop (5 g) of Inflight Elixir powder into 8-16oz (350-500ml) of water and stir or shake it up until fully mixed. Add more/less water for a more diluted or stronger taste. We suggest to take one scoop every 4 hours of flying for optimal results.
Sit back, sip, and enjoy.
Ps. Because we use whole food powders, it's normal for Inflight Elixir to not fully dissolve.

Have you ever stopped to think about what exactly happens to your body when you fly and considered that your body is under completely different conditions and needs different support at 30,000 ft in the air than on the ground?
The lifestyle of a jetsetter is often glamorized through social media and marketing, but what is really going on with your health?
The good news is that once you are aware of what happens when you fly you can take the proper measures to nourish and support your body in the air.
So what exactly happens to your body when you fly?
1. You are exposed to Cosmic Radiation
What the heck is Cosmic Radiation? Basically, it's radiation from the sun, and at ground level this isn't a problem, but once you put yourself into a metal tube and fly to altitudes of 30,000-40,000 feet this can become a big problem over time.
"You can't see it or feel them, but at any given moment, tens of thousands of highly charged particles are soaring through space and slamming into Earth from all directions.
These particles, sometimes called cosmic rays or cosmic ionizing radiation, originate from the farthest reaches of the Milky Way. They're bits and pieces of atomic cores shot to nearly light-speed by black holes and exploding stars, and they smash into (and through) anything and everything in their way.
With that incredible speed and energy, it's no surprise cosmic rays can easily penetrate human flesh and, in the process, pose risks to our health. Their damage to tissues and DNA have been linked to cancer and reproductive problems, for example."
2. Your body becomes dehydrated.
Cabin air is typically dryer than the Sahara Desert. Dehydration can cause headaches, parched skin and lips, and fatigue. Having dehydrated mucous membranes (especially in the nose) leaves us more vulnerable to airborne viruses as well.
3. Your circulation is impaired.
Blood can pool in your legs and circulation can slow down if you are standing on your feet or if you are sitting for too long.
So what are the consequences of poor circulation? Well, blood circulation is essential for your overall health, spreading oxygen and nutrients throughout your entire body. When circulation is impaired, blood pools in your leg veins, contributing to foot swelling by forcing fluids out of the blood and into the surrounding tissue. More serious problems like varicose veins or blood clots can also result.
4. Your immune system suffers.
You can imagine that spending hours in a confined space, with hundreds of strangers from all around the world, all while breathing in recycled air can impact your immune system. Catching a cold is 100 times higher on an airplane because not only are you exposed to tons of germs, but the fatigue and jet lag can even switch off immune system response.
This means that frequent flyers have a suppressed immune system and therefore aren't as well equipped to fight off colds and viruses compared to people who travel less frequently.
5. You will become bloated.
When you fly, your body goes into an immediate state of stress. When we are stressed, all of our body's energy goes to support our vital functions - like breathing and keeping our heart beating. What does this mean for digestion? Well, the blood in our digestive tract get rerouted to support our vital functions so there is a lot less energy to digest the food you eat.
Your under-functioning digestive system will have a harder time digesting the unhealthy, nutrient depleted plane food, and the air pressure changes cause build-ups of gas - it's clear why we feel bloated and experience all sorts of digestive disturbances while we fly.
6. Frequent flyers experience chronic jet lag and age faster.
Scientists now understand and agree that certain genes affect how fast we age—and it appears the more someone travels by air, the faster they age.
"Frequent flying can lead to chronic jet lag, which can cause memory impairment and has been linked in studies to disrupting gene expression that influences aging and the immune system, and increased risk of heart attack or stroke."
Great concept-taste needs work
Being a flight attendant, this spoke to me. I like to be healthy and liked the idea of using vitamins to increase energy and hydration. I was excited to share FlightFud with my crew mates but the resounding feedback from myself and fellow crew was it tasted chalky and “vitamin-y”. Everyone liked the idea and the packaging was great but would appreciate a bit more ease- tablets or vials of the powder would be nice. It’s not super convenient to have to have that big package and struggle with getting the powder into a bottle in a moving aircraft. And we had the galley to do this. I’d imagine it would be harder to accomplish this in a passenger. seat.
Flight Attendant fatigue.
FIRST OFF, I’d like to start by saying this product is my most reached for product in my bag. As a flight attendant i can not begin to describe what our bodies go through day in and day out. It’s insane. This has totally transformed the way i feel while I’m in the air (multiple times a day). Secondly, everything about the product from the scent to the taste it pure goodness. Can not say enough about this item! Hoping you all give it a try!
Cannot Travel without it!
I loved the taste and I enjoyed sharing it with my colleagues as well. We’re all flight crew so it was much appreciated to have a supplement that is so well tailored to combat the negative effects of flying
Great Product!! Stay healthy traveling
I am loving my carry-on travel FlightFud. I brought it with me for my recent trip to Belize and swear that the vitamins and nutrients are what prevented me from getting sick between the 5+ flights and what helped get past my pending head cold. It was so easy to use with the small scoop provided, all you need is a water bottle! I plan on buying more of this for sure and will be using more scoops of these superfoods for my upcoming work flights!
It actually works!
Tastes amazing and it actually works. I will never travel without this product ever again. Thanks for bettering travel health and wellness. This is a game changer! -j
