The Seasoned Traveler
One highlight of traveling abroad is sampling authentic cuisine, such as a traditional shrimp paella in Spain or a spicy curry in India. Unfortunately, food adventures can sometimes leave your stomach in a lurch. Most travelers know to avoid tap water in certain locales, but even with precautions, there’s always the chance an upset tummy could disrupt your trip.
Probiotics are a great way to battle bloat and reduce the risk of traveler’s diarrhea when gallivanting to far off places. Though it may be tempting to take a vacation from your supplements, don’t leave your probiotics at home. They will offer more effective protection if you keep taking them while you’re on the go. Maintaining or even increasing your dosage while traveling can help keep your microbiome happy and healthy so you can enjoy yourself—and all the delicacies you plan on sampling.
Whether you’re traveling near or far, getting from point A to B can put your immune system to the test. Planes, trains, and buses are known breeding grounds for germs, and sometimes you disembark with a little extra baggage: a virus. Combined with the system shock of changing weather, recycled air, lack of sleep, or travel stress, your body may be taking quite a hit.
The common cold and related upper respiratory infections. Traveling can bring increased risk and exposure to viruses that cause the common cold and other upper respiratory infections. Getting sick during a trip may seem inevitable, but did you know that probiotics can help? Studies have shown that probiotics can prevent and treat the common cold, flu, and viral gastroenteritis. Your gastrointestinal tract proves two thirds of the immune-defense cells in your body and are enhanced when you regularly take probiotics.
Traveler’s Diarrhea (TD) is a condition that can affect up to half of the people traveling to developing countries. Characterized by frequent, loose bowel movements, urgency, abdominal cramps, nausea, bloating, and low grade fever, TD is an unpleasant souvenir most travelers would prefer to avoid. Typically, TD is acquired by ingestion of food or water contaminated by a variety of bacteria, viruses, or bacterial toxins. By improving the health of your digestive system, probiotics have been shown to both prevent and treat Traveler’s Diarrhea.
Ideally, we all should be including daily vitamins and supplements in our routines, but juggling multiple bottles and elixirs can be frustrating even when you aren’t traveling. A good way to ward off potential sickness, support your immune system, and free up luggage space is to choose an all-in-one product that contains a beneficial mix of probiotics, vitamins, and micronutrients.
