Forty-five percent of Americans take a summer vacation resulting in 657 million trips annually between Memorial Day and Labor Day . Many of these trips are to beaches or other fun summer locales. And change of place usually means a change of habits, even if temporarily.
Vacations usually include a serious change to our diet.
We all know you grabbed that cinnamon bun in the airport or ate gas station snacks in the car. Plus, dining out is a perk of visiting new places, trying new cuisines or just taking a break from daily meal preparation.
Many vacations result in increased carbs, fat and often, alcohol. Why not give your guts some extra support this vacation and love them with probiotics? Help your digestive system manage your vacation diet.
Give your guts a break: Probiotics are for travel.
H2PRO™ is ideal, because not only does it contain four strains of beneficial bacteria, but it also provides vitamins in an easy to carry package that can be added to your food or drink! It is as easy as adding H2PRO™ to your beachside water bottle.
H2PRO™ is formulated for everyone and isn’t in a pill form you have to hassle with. It is great for traveling families- everyone can use it! (See our recommended dosing chart for children.)
Probiotics have been shown to improve constipation in healthy adults . Increased fats, decreased fiber and dehydration can lead to constipation on vacation! Hydrate in a healthy way with H2PRO™ Immune Health or Bone and Joint Health. Hydration is an important part of good health that we have addressed in a previous blog.
If you travel to developing countries or out of the states, consider the risk of traveler’s diarrhea (TD). Up to half of people that travel to developing countries can be afflicted by traveler’s diarrhea. One risk assessment, performed as a part of a meta-analysis of probiotic studies, estimated that up to 85% of potential cases of TD could potentially be prevented by probiotics . However, keep in mind susceptibility to TD is a result of many factors, such as exposure to bacterial loads in food and water or travel location, and is ultimately not entirely preventable.
Probiotics are safe to add to your dietary regime.
Probiotics are generally considered safe for use by most people. People suffering from bowel disease or compromised immune system conditions should check with their doctor before starting a course of probiotics.
H2PRO™ is easy on the go. H2PRO™ is shelf stable due to our unique freeze drying process that allows the bacteria to remain biologically stable over a longer period of time. So H2PRO™ requires no refrigeration. Put it in your bag and when you can, add it to your morning yogurt or your poolside drink.
But don’t add H2PRO™ to foods that are hot or alcoholic drinks. High temperatures (greater than 102 F) and alcohol will kill the good stuff, the microbes!
And don’t forget, H2PRO™ is formulated for everyone! Take enough for the whole family!
Love your Guts. Take them on Vacation.
