Washington, May 18 : Now that the summer travel season has begun, jet lag can create lot of problems for many travellers. But don't worry for you can beat it - courtesy Anti-Jet-Lag Diet developed at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory.
Jet lag symptoms include feelings of irritability, insomnia, indigestion and general disorientation that occur when the body's inner clock is out of step with environmental time cues like meal times, sunrise and sunset, and daily cycles of rest and activity.
A study published in 2002 in the medical journal Military Medicine found that travelers who use the Argonne Anti-Jet-Lag Diet are seven times less likely to experience jet lag when traveling west and 16 times less likely when traveling east.
"Anyone traveling across three or more time zones can use the Argonne Anti-Jet-Lag Diet to eliminate or reduce jet lag," said Argonne's Dave Baurac.
"The Argonne Anti-Jet-Lag Diet uses the same natural time cues that nature uses to maintain our healthy cellular rhythms, such as meal contents and timing, light and dark cycles and daily activity cycles," he added.
