If you’re off on holiday, you don’t want anything to spoil it. Here are our top 4 supplements we recommend to support your health while travelling.
Different Foods – When travelling, we can become exposed to bacteria in food and drink that we are not used to. Additionally, our diets tend to change, with different, perhaps more indulgent, foods being consumed. Try taking a ‘Live bacteria’ supplement. Our Everyday BioAcidophilus is ideal for taking on holiday with you. It contains 10 billion of our LAB4 live bacteria, in convenient 7 day strips with no need for refrigeration, so can be taken on the go.
Jet Lag – Travelling between different time zones can disrupt our natural circadian rhythm and lead to jet lag, resulting in sleep disruption and fatigue. Consider magnesium-containing supplements to support your energy and nervous system. Promote a good night’s sleep and get yourself back on track with our NT Intensive – a high potency powder containing a synergistic blend of ingredients such as lemon balm extract, magnesium, lecithin and l-tryptophan.
Skin Health – Supporting skin health is also essential, especially if you are going to warmer countries or are particularly prone to sunburn. There are specific nutrients which can help to protect skin against the damage which can occur during sunburn and prolonged UV exposure. Our MicroCell NutriGuard Plus contains vitamin E, C, zinc and selenium – antioxidants that contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
Immunity – There’s nothing worse than coming down with an infection as soon as you relax. To support your immune system whilst you are away, we would recommend our Immune Intensive. This product is a potent complex of elderberry, sage and beta glucans with immune-supporting vitamin C, vitamin D and Zinc in a convenient and pleasant tasting powder that can be mixed with liquids for flexibility.
Making sure you are getting the right support is key in order to try and ensure that your holiday goes as swimmingly as possible. Happy summer and safe travels!
