Want an all natural way to prevent jet lag? Next time you fly to Hawaii or elsewhere, eat some cherries. The cherry fruit is one of the richest known sources of natural melatonin. Melatonin has been proven to hasten sleep and ease jet lag.
According to Russel J. Reiter, PhD, a nutrition researcher at the University of Texas Health and Science Center and one of the world’s leading authorities on melatonin, try eating dried cherries one hour before desired sleep time on the plane. After arrival, consume cherries one hour before desired sleep each night for at least three consecutive evenings.
Dried cherries are the most convenient to take on your trip. One serving is a 1/2 cup of dried cherries, 1 cup frozen cherries or cherry juice, or 2 tablespoons cherry juice concentrate.
