Beating the Travel Bug these Holidays

Travel to-do list … Passport … check! Beach wear … check! Hat, sunglasses, camera … check! Probiotic Foods for Everyone Capsules … triple check, check, check! Don’t forget to pack those convenient little capsules that deliver pre and probiotics and nutrition. Don’t let toilet locations dictate your itinerary!

Whenever you travel away from home your gut is exposed to a host of different bacteria and viruses. Not just in the food and water, but airborne and on the ground. If you have more good bacteria boosting your defences there’s a good chance that any bad guys won’t worry you.

Nothing ruins a holiday more than a case of the runs, and surprisingly 60% of us fall ill when we travel overseas—if you only travel once a year that ain’t living! Saccharomyces boulardii (SB) is the bacterial strain most researched in the prevention and treatment of traveller’s diarrhea and many other gastric upsets. And it is one of the 14 strains of probiotics used in the fermentation process to create Probiotic Foods.

SB is a actually a yeast with amazing abilities:
1. Keeps the right balance of good bacteria in the intestines
2. Strengthens the gut mucosa to prevent bad bacteria from colonising and taking over
3. Reduces inflammation locally in the gut and systemically
4. Supports enzymes to digest and absorb food

Additionally, making good food choices and drinking filtered water on holidays can be challenging. Chances are you’ve also had the pre-holiday stress of just getting out the door, air travel, a new timezone, lack of sleep, so your body is already coping with extra stressors. Probiotic Foods has the added benefit of absorbable nutrition to plug the gaps of holiday over indulgence. Start taking Probiotic Foods for Everyone Capsules a week before you travel building up to 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules at night and continue while you are away.

“I swear by Probiotic Foods. I had dreadful problems with a parasite Blastocystis hominis and as long as I take 1/2 tsp of Probiotic Foods every morning and night I’m sorted.”
Scott Wilson, Northbridge, NSW

Time to place your Christmas orders for Probiotic Foods so you get your stock in time for the rush. I’m off to Bali today and will report back on how my group of 6 fully loaded with Probiotic Foods family fares.

Happy Holidays!
