Plenty Of Water Can Eases Effects of Jet Lag

Associated Press

Drinking plenty of water before an airplane flight will help prevent fluid losses that contribute to jet lag, according to the American Water Works Assn.

Medical experts tell us that a daily replenishment of two to three quarts of water is needed through food and drink to maintain our health. During an airline flight, dry air circulated at high altitudes can result in water loss-- as much as a full quart of body water on a 3 1/2-hour flight. The association recommends drinking more water before and during a flight.
