Brent and I have dealt with more than our share of jet lag over the past few years. There are all kinds of techniques, pills, diets, sleep re-arranging, and gimmicks for speeding up the process of recovering from jet lag, that nasty bodily response to dramatically changing time zones. The ancient mariners and travelers of old took months to get from one place to another, so their bodies had time to embrace the changes. For us modern travelers, we can be on the other side of the planet within hours where our morning is their night, screwing up our internal clocks and making us miserably uncomfortable to actually ill feeling with headaches, stomach aches, sleepiness, nausea, and serious irritability.
According to an article in ScienceDaily, a Website Offers the Web’s Most Comprehensive Information About the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet. The site is called Anti-Jet Lag Diet and supposedly offers the most extensive information online about how to use the famous Anti-Jet-Lag Diet, developed by biologists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory.
According to the article, “the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet has helped hundreds of thousands of travelers avoid jet lag over the last 20 years.” For a small fee, travelers can also use their software program to customize an Anti-Jet-Lag Diet tailored to their schedule and itinerary. But most of the information is free.
Research shows that travelers who use
the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet are seven times less likely to
experience jet lag when traveling west and 16 times less likely
when traveling east.
The free online information provides extensive information about food choices, caffeine use and the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet’s origin and history, including research from a study by the medical journal Military Medicine proved the effectiveness of the Anti-Jet-Lag Diet.
It might be worth a try for your next trip overseas. We’ll be looking more into this.
