Gummies, Born to run!
Globetrotters will tell you: jet lag is the price you have to pay when you like to travel.
Fatigue, sleep disorders and irritability are just some of the unpleasant effects of jet lag, and few people can escape it.
How can you counter the effects?
JET LAG-INDUCED SLEEP DISTURBANCE
When traveling, jet lag can cause temporary sleep disturbance. This happens because our biological clock is synchronized with our home time zone. If you’re traveling primarily for business, jet lag can interfere with your performance in meetings or other responsibilities. If you’re traveling for pleasure, precious time can be lost trying to recover from the flight.
Jet lag is unavoidable, so it’s good to know a few tricks to minimize its effects. In recent years, research has shown that a melatonin supplement can help.
JET LAG GUMMIES
Melatonin is a good option for minimizing the annoying effects of jet lag. Although it’s not a cure, it can help you get back on a regular sleep schedule in your new time zone.
Irati’s JET LAG GUMMIES with the subtle aroma of fig and blueberry have been designed and developed with melatonin to help alleviate the subjective sensations of jet lag.
WHAT IS MELATONIN AND HOW DOES IT INFLUENCE SLEEP?
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland, located in the center of our brain. In natural light, the pineal gland is inactive, but it becomes active when the sun goes down, stimulating melatonin production. As melatonin levels rise, we feel increasingly tired and go to bed. Melatonin levels remain high throughout the night and into the morning. Melatonin is also used to treat sleep disorders see our product “GUMMIES SOMMEIL“.
Consult your health advisor before taking melatonin. The hormone is not recommended for pregnant women or those with certain health problems. Melatonin is recommended for use for up to two months only. Be sure not to combine melatonin with other sedatives, including alcohol.
USE MELATONIN TO REDUCE THE EFFECTS
OF JET LAG
Melatonin is not a sleeping pill. It’s a way of helping our bodies make the transition between different time zones. Be aware of your bedtime. Take melatonin at least 20 to 30 minutes before bedtime. Be aware of your other activities. Melatonin will help, but it’s not the only thing you can do.
→ Learn the local customs to acclimatize to your new time.
→ Try to eat your meals at the local time, coordinate your sleeping hours and try to maximize them during the first few nights.
→ Stay hydrated and active, even if you feel tired and weak.
→ Expose yourself to daylight at appropriate times to help your pineal gland produce its own melatonin!
Using melatonin in combination with good hydration and exercise will help you get ready for your next big adventure!
