Arnica/Cocculus 30c Jet Lag is a homeopathic remedy directed for use to combat the symptoms of jet lag including insomnia, headaches, fatigue and disorientation. Desynchronosis is the term used to describe what happens when the body’s normal sleep-wake patterns are disturbed. These patterns are controlled by circadian rhythms. Darkness and light have a strong role to play in influencing these circadian rhythms and therefore long haul flights across different time zones and day/night transitions play havoc on the body’s natural sleep/wake cycles.
What’s in Organic Pharmacy Arnica/Cocculus 30c – Jet Lag?
- Arnica (Arnica Montana)
- Rye Alcohol
Arnica helps to mend the body after physical trauma to reduce pain, particularly muscle pain, and also to aid with circulation and has anti-inflammatory properties. Cocculus combats travel sickness, nausea and fatigue. This supplement lacks the two pronged approach for addressing both sleep inducement at night and wakefulness during the day. It also lacks the ingredient Melatonin. Melatonin is a commonly added ingredient to many jet lag products on the market and is effective in inducing sleep.
How Do You Use Organic Pharmacy Arnica/Cocculus 30c – Jet Lag?

The Conclusion of Our Organic Pharmacy Arnica/Cocculus 30c Jet Lag Review
What we liked about Organic Pharmacy Arnica/Cocculus 30c Jet Lag; it’s an all natural supplement which is safe, natural and mild to use. We had some not so positive comments too. At $19 for 30 pills with a possible 6 pill per day dose, this is a very costly supplement, made costlier without a bulk purchase discount. In terms of the ingredient list, it’s not clear to us how well homeopathic ingredients work at inducing sleep. We do know that one key ingredient, melatonin is lacking from this supplement. Melatonin is a commonly added ingredient to many jet lag products on the market. At only 7 days, the company does not offer a long enough guarantee or refund policy. This does not entrust confidence in consumers. There are also a very small number of reviews on this product indicating that it does not have widespread use nor success. We suggest you look for an alternative sleep remedy that contains melatonin and provides a day as well as a night formula so that there is a more targeted approach to the very different symptoms experienced when traveling across different time zones.
