Whether you are traveling by plane, train, or automobile, keeping the following nutritional information in mind can help keep you comfortable and healthy—wherever your journeys may take you.
Crossing time zones too rapidly for your body’s circadian clock to keep pace can lead to the uncomfortable experience of jet lag. Certain nutrients are required by your body in order to produce melatonin, which is a major element of your circadian clock. Deficiencies in these essential nutrients may increase the severity of jet lag.
- B vitamins and magnesium are required for the production of melatonin
Immunity is a top concern and challenge when you’re traveling. Marginal nutrient deficiencies are very common, and can compromise the complex functions of your immune system and weaken your defenses.
- Studies have shown that taking a multivitamin enhances immune response
Travel and the bodily stresses that go with it can increase free radicals in the body, which can damage cells and tissues and contribute to serious health issues. Increasing your antioxidant intake before, during, and after your travels can help protect you.
- Each I.U. of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) neutralizes billions of free radicals in the body
Maintaining good circulation and healthy blood flow while traveling is important to your comfort—helping to avoid swollen feet and/or muscle cramps—but when it comes to blood clots it can also be a matter of life and death. In addition to staying hydrated and moving around as often as possible, certain nutrients also support healthy circulation.
- The amino acid L-arginine and vitamin B3 both support healthy blood flow and circulation
Perhaps the primary factor in staying healthy and comfortable while traveling is staying hydrated. Dehydration causes an increase in platelets and proteins in the blood, and an overall thickening of the blood and reduced blood flow throughout the body.
- Studies suggest that on long flights, drinking electrolytes in water is more effective than plain water for retaining water in the body, maintaining healthy blood concentrations and viscosity, and for recovering more quickly
