Supplement your Travels
March 08 2022 – Chris Clearman
If you’re like us, you probably land at your destination with a packed schedule and don’t have much time to be tired. Vitamin B is great for boosting energy and getting over jetlag. One of the (many) active ingredients in 5 Hour Energy, you can skip the jitters that come with the energy drink alternatives and chew on a vitamin B12 tablet for a boost.
Airports- where 9am airport beers are completely acceptable. If you drink more than usual when you travel, consider milk thistle. Some studies show that it can help with hangovers.
Your body naturally produces melatonin at night, which contributes to you feeling tired right around bedtime. If you need to get some sleep on the plane and want to keep it relatively natural, melatonin will do the trick without making you drowsy the next day.
Nobody loves jet lag, or the headache that often comes with it. The nighttime variety of the headache cure can help you fall asleep when you're in the wrong time zone and might ultimately help you not need a pain reliever the following day.
When you travel, you’re probably eating quite a bit of food you’re not used to eating. Probiotics may help with travelers indigestion should your adventures lead you down a path of dietary indiscretion.
Whatever supplements you take at home, there's reason to keep your routine as similar as possible when you hit the road or change time zones. Always ask a health professional before starting any supplements- you know the drill. We are not certified to give any health advice. We are, however, experienced with jetlag, hangovers, and Montezuma's revenge. Stay healthy, eat interesting food, travel hard.
