Ease the Jet Lag

jet lagWhen you fly across several time zones, you disrupt the body’s circadian rhythms. The condition of jet lag may last many days, and recovery rates of 1 day per eastward time zone or 1 day per 1.5 westward time zones. Symptoms are headaches, fatigue, insomnia, constipation, diarrhea, and mild depression.[1]

To ease jet lag, you should avoid drinking alcohol during flight, limit caffeine, drink plenty of water and take melatonin 0.3 to 0.5mg.
