If you’re preparing for your summer vacation, along with your swimsuit and sunscreen, don’t forget your vitamins and supplements.
Traveling can put a lot of stress on the body, and that extra stress can weaken your immune system and the last thing any of us want is to endure an unpleasant illness on a vacation. To prepare for your trip, create a “travel packing list” that includes the proper combination of nutrients, so you can ensure you and your family stays healthy and happy on your travels.
No matter where you are planning to spend your family vacation, taking probiotics are essential. But, this is especially true if you are heading to exotic shores, as many of us in the UAE do on a regular basis. In fact, the most important item you could have in your suitcase is a bottle of probiotics.
The word “probiotic” is a compound of two Greek words: “pro,” to signify promotion of and “biotic,” which means life. There are more than a trillion different bacteria in our gut that helps us to digest food and prevent intruders. When the normal bacterial balance in your body is broken up due to stress, illness or travelling then the intake of probiotics will help to promote it. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that keep your gut healthy and strong, reducing digestive problems and boosting your immune system.
Probiotics populate your gut with beneficial bacteria, so your body will be protected if it encounters any foreign microbes (bacteria, parasites, etc.), especially from exotic destinations. If your GI tract is not adequately defended, you are more likely to experience illnesses like the dreaded traveller’s diarrhoea. On the other hand, if you keep the beneficial bacteria colonies in your gut flourished, the chances of suffering digestive imbalances from foreign pathogens is significantly decreased. So, unless you’re planning on spending your time in the hotel bathroom, probiotics should be an essential part of your travel kit.
