After being tested by 16 healthy volunteers who were examined in isolation chambers, the pill was successful in adjusting their biological clocks, proving that there’s a more effective way to convince your body that it’s night time during the day. Ya know, other than just wearing an eye mask everywhere, especially since you'd just bump into tons of stuff if you can't see.
Though it isn’t ready to be sold or distributed yet, the experimental pill could be a major breakthrough for frequent fliers. And the best part of it all: you wouldn't have to give up booze or coffee!
