There are various ways an individual can handle jet lag from a long flight. Taking sleeping pills like Melatonin is a common method, however Re-Timer glasses intend to reset your internal body clock and help you overcome jet lag without drug use.
The futuristic glasses beam a soft green light into the eyes of the user to eliminate the effects of a long flight. The light stimulates the part of the brain that regulates the body's 24-hour clock. Leon Lack, the lead inventor and a clinical psychologist at the Adelaide Institute for Sleep Health, discussed his new sleep alternative device with CNET:
"Our extensive research studies have shown that green light is one of the most effective wavelengths for advancing or delaying the body clock."
To ensure proper use, the frequent-flyer calculator on the Re-Timer website determines when the user should wear the glasses by entering destination arrival and departure times.
Aside from jet lag, Re-Timer glasses are also beneficial to those who suffer from insomnia or frequent schedule changes on the job. Grab your own pair of the sleeping aid glasses today, which retail at $286, from Re-Timer's website here.
