Overview

Kwells Tablets (Pack of 12)

Kwells Travel Sickness Tablets provide fast and effective prevention and control of travel sickness.

Travel sickness happens when the brain receives mixed messages. Visual messages from the eyes inform the brain that the immediate surroundings are stationary, but a delicate balancing organ in the ear tells the brain that you are moving. This conflicting information triggers the nausea we associate with travel sickness.

The active ingredient Hyoscine, acts on the balance organs of the inner ear and the nerves that are responsible for nausea. It temporarily reduces the effect of movement on the balance organs.

Kwells Travel Sickness Tablets act fast to settle, balance and prevent sickness while travelling. Because Kwells tablets melt in the mouth, absorption into the bloodstream is very rapid and they can be taken up to 20–30 minutes before travelling or at the onset of sickness.
