Please recommend some anxiety management methods!!
Hello, my friend is a 32-year-old man who needs an OTC supplement for alleviating the symptoms of jet lag. He has been traveling back and forth across the country on business for the past few weeks and he can’t seem to acclimate to the time zone changes and adjust his sleep patterns accordingly. He is experiencing insomnia and excessive daytime sleepiness, which are impacting his work performance. What herbal supplement is indicated for the prevention of jet lag?

@manohar Jet lag is a temporary condition associated with air travel across 3 more time zones that can result in poor sleep or delayed sleep onset (after traveling east), early awakening (after traveling west), poor mental alertness in the new time zone, fatigue, irritability, and impaired concentration. Symptoms of jet lag can be alleviated through various nonpharmacologic means prior to travel, including eating a balanced diet and allowing for plenty of rest prior to travel and adjusting the timing of sleep to a few hours earlier or later (depending on the direction of air travel) several days prior to a trip. During travel, travelers should be counseled to avoid excessive meals, alcohol, and caffeine intake, keep hydrated, and sleep during long flights.
