We’ve all been there: after months of excited planning and a few nights in an exotic new location, your stomach starts to tie up in knots and you realise you’re coming down with something. It might have been the water, the food, or just the change in conditions, but whatever it is, for the next day or two you’re going to be seeing no sights grander than the view from your hotel window. 

Bugs and upset stomachs are, unfortunately, one of the unpleasant realities that any backpacker has to face sooner or later. With Bimuno TRAVELAID, however, you can give your immune system a boost that will help to ward off those poorly tummies while you’re abroad, letting you enjoy your holiday exactly as planned.

 

What exactly is Bimuno TRAVELAID?

Bimuno are a range of unique, second-generation prebiotics. Unlike probiotics, which contain live bacteria to help “top up” the immune system in your gut, TRAVELAID is a prebiotic, which instead contains a complex carbohydrate specifically formulated to help your “good” bacteria thrive.

With over 60% of your immune system centred in your gut, keeping your “good” bacteria healthy is of great benefit when travelling. Scientific studies indicate that TRAVELAID not only helps encourage and sustain the growth of your “good” bacteria, but that it reduces the amount of troubesome bacteria, which might cause illnesses, too. With a strong, healthy gut flora, your natural barrier against “bad” bacteria will be at its strongest, too.

Prebiotics vs Probiotics

There are several advantages to taking a prebiotic, rather than a probiotic, when travelling. The complex carbohydrate found in all Bimuno products is incredibly stable, meaning it doesn’t need storing in a fridge. This is great news for backpackers, as you can simply tuck a small, discrete box of TRAVELAID into a pocket and you’re ready to go. Prebiotics are also more effective, too; unlike probiotics, the carboydrates in Bimuno aren’t broken down by your stomach acid, so they reach your gut intact, for maximum effect.

 

How do I take TRAVELAID?

TRAVELAID comes in the form of chewy pastilles, which are simply taken twice a day as part of your normal routine. Because the effects are cumulative, its recommended to start taking them 7 days before you travel, so that you’re fully covered when you reach your destination.

If you want to support your digestive health while abroad, then all of Bimuno’s prebiotic range, including TRAVELAID, can be purchased directly from their website, at http://www.bimuno.com/ .
