    (HealthDay News) -- Feeling a little tense at the wheel? Finding yourself frequently on the verge of road rage? Try a little peppermint or cinnamon.

    New research from West Virginia's Wheeling Jesuit University shows that cinnamon or peppermint may curb driver fatigue, increase alertness and ease frustration behind the wheel. The study found:
    • In general, prolonged driving led to increased anger, fatigue and physical demand, as well as decreased energy.
    • Peppermint eased anxiety and fatigue while driving.
    • Peppermint and cinnamon both decreased driving frustration.
    • Peppermint and cinnamon both increased alertness while driving.
