Food Influences Body Clock And May Ease Jet Lag, Yamaguchi University Study
7/17/2014 7:10:47 AM
Food could be a new weapon in shaking off the effects of jet lag after research in mice showed that the insulin released as a result of eating can be a key factor in restoring a disrupted body clock.

These daily rhythms affect alertness, sleep patterns, and mediate many other physiological processes.
