Jet Lag…that horrible feeling after you cross time zones. You’re groggy, irritable and extremely exhausted.
If you travel across several time zones in a short period of time, with a varied day/night cycle than what you’re normally used to, you actually endure a phyisiological condition effecting your body’s circadian (daily) rhythms. This, in turn, disrupts your melatonin, which is the hormone responsible for your sleep/wake cycle.
Basically, you feel nauseous, unmotivated, moody and maybe even slightly bloated.
But there’s a few ways you can prevent and/or overcome it!
Of course the standards include stay hydrated, transition slowly to the new time zone, eat healthy and avoid alcohol…but something you may not have heard of is how effective Omega-3’s may be in helping restore your melatonin!
I’ve been using OmegaBrite daily for the past month and have enjoyed the mood-boosting effects! It’s also known to promote cardiac health, emotional wellbeing, joint health and cognitive clarity (mommas we need this!).
OmegaBrite is a physician formulated, 90% Omega-3 pharmaceutical supplement, made from small fish off the cold, clean waters of Peru and Chile to deliver the highest quality.
You can find my favorite Omega-3 Gelcaps for $39.99 via OmegaBrite!
