Tights 'can help with jet lag'
Tights are not just a fashionable extra which add oomph to an outfit but can actually offer health benefits, it is suggested.

New research recommends people flying abroad for work or pleasure to don some high-tech hosiery, which it claims can help limit the effects of jet lag.

The Aviation Health Institute asserts the limited oxygen in aircraft combines with the long flight to affect people's internal clock and cause excessive sleepiness.

Special tights, it argues, can increase the flow of blood back to the heart.

This is not the first time legwear has offered such health benefits.

Recently, the Baxter Bulletin reported special compression socks can help athletes' performance, as well as helping people with circulation problems.

The publication said the socks may not be as fashionable as other alternatives but can improve performance while offering runners comfortable feet.
