Manchester University researchers have found that the body clock could be ‘reset’ with a pill, which could cure jet lag and ease the strain of working nights.
The scientists have found an enzyme that keeps the body operating on a normal 24 hour circadian rhythm.

Their tests on specially bred mice revealed an enzyme, which controls how the body’s clock can be reset. Drug companies are using the discovery to develop a pill to ease the impact of sleep deprivation, jet lag and changes to daily routine.  

Dr David Bechtold, who led the research, reportedly said that a treatment could even be ready within five or ten years. The research is published in Current Biology.
