If you’re taking a long haul flight you don’t want to have to worry about jet lag. It can set you back days until your body fully catches up with itself, and they say it takes one day per hour of the time change to get over the lag. So if there’s an eight hour time difference where you’re heading, it could take you eight days to completely adjust.
Re-timer glasses are designed to help your body beat the jet lag symptoms faster, by gradually altering the time of day your eyes are exposed to light. Wear these glasses for 60 minutes a day starting three days before you depart and they’ll help you sleep better once you reach your destination. There’s over 25 years of university research on this product and a 60-day money back guarantee.
