Update Date: Apr 28, 2017 09:45 AM EDT

Jet lag is a physiological malady that agitates the human body's circadian rhythms. It is consequently labeled as a circadian rhythm disturbance.

Just recently, a new study revealed that there can be a new treatment for this condition. Let's find out more about it.

Signs Of Jet Lag

Individuals with jet lag have disturbances in sleeping. They will feel exhausted, cranky, sluggish, and imperceptibly disoriented. A recent research stated that there can be a possible treatment for this sleeping disorder.

Possible Treatment

Science World Report said that based on latest research that was written in The Journal of Physiology, the retinal ganglion cells present in the eyes recognize unusual or more suitably untimely vulnerability to radiant light. They then deliver the same to the SCN (suprachiasmatic nucleus) center of the biological clock via vasopressin or simply put, eye drops.

The publication also added that the latest study that was administered on rats revealed that exposure to a bright throb of light spurs the retinal ganglion cells, as well as the SCN. The experts moreover studied the specific function of vasopressin in the method of causing and counteracting jet lag and found that obstructing vasopressin action in the brain significantly decreased SCN's response on bright light exposure.

Other Purpose Of The Research

The Independent reported that a functional level, the research endeavored to contribute an extensive understanding of the biological clock to start to discuss the health difficulties that can be experienced by individuals who are working night shifts. This also includes those who are frequently travelling in long distances.

According to a statement from Professor Mike Ludwig of the University of Edinburgh, the interesting outcomes of the research show a possibly innovative pharmacological plan to manage our inner physiological clocks. Stay tuned for more updates on this latest research on curing jet lag,
