NEW YORK: When you are traveling in different time zones life can get difficult at times and there is nothing worse than not getting into a daily routine physically and mentally. Especially at this time of the year when you also have a change of the seasons and the Fashion Weeks take some of us from one point to the other side of the world.
Just stay cool and relaxed and follow these great tips from our Guest Editor, Mila Joura, who founded her own company M3 Product and works in synergy with nutritionist Oz Garcia in New York City and internationally.
MILA’S JET LAG NATURAL REMEDIES
Drink water at room temperature with juice of 1/2 lemon and a hefty dash of cayenne pepper in the morning to get your circulation and bowels moving after a long flight and sleepless night.
Take 1/2 droplet of black seed oil under your tongue to clear out dried out sinuses and bring down histamine.
Mix a shake with Choline Cocktail by Twinlabs, Proendorphine by Nutraceutics and chia or flax seed to jumpstart your brain and digestive function.
If this doesn’t wake you up, brew a nice cup of organic coffee and mix in 1/2 teaspoon of Ghee (or grass-fed butter) and 1/2 teaspoon of Brain Octaine Coconut Oil (or any organic coconut oil) — here’s a nutritious energy drink to support high energy level and brain function throughout the day.
A high-protein breakfast can be a difficult task when you’re jet lagged, so make your shake more nutritious with ground flax, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame and goji mix by Linwoods, or make your own nut/berry ground mix.
Seep hot green tea or Matcha tea throughout the day to keep your energy up.
And the queen of all jetlag treatments — Cryo Therapy! It reduces inflammation, improves circulation, helps to release endorphines (hence improved mood), boosts energy and promotes deep sleep.
If you can’t fall asleep, try Power Off supplement or simply 500 mg of Niacine (B3 vitamin)
