Uppy- The genius flyer helps the body to cope with the dry cabin air. It contains rehydration solution, electrolytes, minerals, ginger and vitamins, which combined will help the traveler to arrive in better condition and to recover quicker.
“I’ve flown a lot in my life, gone directly to meetings and come home tired and exhausted,” says Olle Marköö, founder of Uppy! AB. ” Finally, I decided to come up with a solution.”
Olle Marköö began experimenting with different cures with the goal to arrive in better condition – in addition to strengthening the immune system. Together with his team, he developed a product that has now evolved into a new business: Uppy! – The genius flyer.
“Basically, it’s about maintaining fluid balance in the air cabins extremely dry air,” says Olle Marköö.
He further explains that the humidity in an aircraft cabin is as low as 10-20 per cent, which corresponds to the humidity in the Sahara. Meanwhile, the pressure in the cabin is corresponding to 2500 meters altitude.These conditions put a strain on the body, and a long flight of four hours or more, will make you lose salts and minerals. The effect is that the passenger feels tired and jet lag effect becomes more apparent.
Uppy is designed in the form of an effervescent tablet, which should be dissolved in a glass of water. To achieve optimum effect, one tablet for every three hours should be consumed during the flight.
“Uppy contains important electrolytes that help to restore the body’s fluid balance. Vitamins D and C as well as zinc and selenium maintain a normal functioning immune system, while vitamin B12 and magnesium helps reduce fatigue and exhaustion, “says Tina Almstedt, product developer with a Masters degree in Chemistry from Chalmers.
Uppy! has been evaluated by crew members of a major airline. Captain Per de la Motte, who works long haul flights, explains:
“Working as a pilot or cabin crew on long-haul flights can be quite tiring and stressful for the body. Like most people, we have up to now mostly been drinking water and coffee. After continuously having used Uppy, I find that it makes a big difference. Several colleagues of my crew have been evaluating Uppy! with overall very positive feedback. ”
Olle Marköö emphasizes that Uppy has been developed in cooperation with nutritional experts, with the vision to help all flying personnel and passengers – especially on long haul flights.
“The traveler should simply be supported to maintain the sharpness all day through,” concludes Olle Marköö. “The interest for this is of course similar if you travel on vacation or if you go straight into a business meeting.”
