Andrew Herr, Founder & CEO of Fount, shares his first-of-its-kind jet lag protocol to maintain and even optimize health and wellness while traveling. Flying is rough on the body, and Andrew discovered why. He explains the inflammatory response that occurs due to the change in air pressure, which impairs how you think, feel, and perform. In combination with changing time zones, the effects on the body can be extreme. But, as Andrew explains, you can biohack jet lag.

Key Points:

  • Flying causes an inflammatory response due to changes in air pressure that affect how you think, feel and perform
  • The effects are even more extreme the further you fly
  • Fatigue, sleep problems, lack of focus and mental clarity, mood changes, and digestion issues are just some of the tolls flying takes on our bodies
  • Andrew Herr is the Founder & CEO of Fount, a company that delivers customized, concierge performance, and wellness programs to top performers
  • Andrew ran human performance efforts for the US military, including the first-ever jet lag protocol, which inspired the creation of his health and performance coaching business
  • The jet lag protocol can be applied by anyone to optimize their health and wellness while traveling
  • Andrew shares the elements of his protocol, which Chase himself has experienced, and provides practical tips to beat jet lag
  • Biohacking jet lag involves understanding your body's natural circadian rhythm and adapting to your new environment
  • Other factors, such as nutrition and exercise, also play a critical role in mitigating the effects of jet lag
