Taking Probiotics For Healthy Travel Abroad

If you and your loved ones are about to travel both domestically or abroad, then consider investing in a quality line of Probiotics For Healthy Traveling. This is especially important if you are traveling to a foreign country.

Did you know, a therapeutic strength probiotic is considered by health experts as the most important supplement for traveling?  

Of course, taking a vitamin C or daily multi-vitamin supplement is great, but it’s definitely not as important as taking a probiotic travel supplement.

Let’s look at some of the reasons why traveling with a strong probiotic is so important and just what the benefits are for overall travel health.

Probiotics For Healthy Travel – Gut Health

What is a Probiotic?

The word “probiotic” is used to describe microorganisms, or in easier terms, good bacteria living in our gut that help to keep us healthy and alive.

Bacteria is usually thought of only as something bad, which is disease-causing or pathogenic bacteria. Keeping the correct balance between the “good” bacteria and the “bad” bacteria is vital for optimal health.

Healthy food choices such as a quality yogurt for instance, are great for maintaining this balance, but for us seasoned travelers, we all know these foods are not always readily available and what the actual content quality will actually be.

That’s why selecting a high quality probiotic supplement is so important for healthy travel.

When we do travel, especially abroad, we become susceptible to a host of microbes or bacteria that our bodies are not accustomed to and can make us ill.

No fun at all! 🙁

Reasons To Take A Probiotic Supplement

Healthy Travel Tips

Travelers Diarrhea Prevention

Oh that dreaded travelers nightmare that I’m sure, many of us have experienced at least once!  I know I have on numerous occasions in past years, especially when bottled water was not readily available as it is today.

In fact, 50% of travelers experience this horrible symptom when away from home. The main cause is bacterial contamination we ingest from food or water. Both may be fine, but our bodies are just not accustomed to the microorganisms or bacteria present in the food and water.

As a result, we get sick!

Keeping your intestinal tract and gut healthy when traveling and while at home, will assist in overall health and well-being.

Taking Probiotics Before You Travel

Travel Health

Experts strongly suggest to start taking a probiotic supplement at least two weeks before travel, to benefit best for overall protection from illness. This time period allows the good bacteria to form and establish themselves in the gut prior to travel.

This will in turn assist in keeping your immune system healthy.

It is also suggested to continue using probiotics while away and for at least two weeks after returning home from travel.

Choosing The Right Probiotic Supplement

GIB Benefits


Effective Ingredients When Choosing a Probiotic Supplement:

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus has been shown to help the body maintain intestinal microbial balance, assist in in minimizing the duration and intensity of digestive disruptions caused by antibiotics and other drugs, to support urinary and intestinal health, as well as provide optimal immune support.

Bifidobacterium Lactis has been identified in the scientific literature for its contribution in the stimulation of the immune systems response, its ability to resist stomach acid in the digestion process, and the ability to attenuate various forms of digestive disruption and inflammation.

Bifidobacteria Longum has been show in the scientific literature to assist with digestive disruptions caused by antibiotics, aid in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels, help alleviate the discomforts associated with lactose sensitivity, and boosts the immune system.

Inulin has been shown in the scientific literature to assist in the transport of these probiotic strains into the lower G.I. tract by protecting them as they pass through the highly acidic environment of the upper G.I. tract. This ensures that the good bacteria you need makes it through the initial processes of digestion without being destroyed.
