Travelling: When to Take Probiotics
According to the Health Canada website, traveler’s diarrhea is the most common illness that affects travelers and is easily spread from person to person or by consuming contaminated food or water.‡ Traveler’s diarrhea is caused by different types of bacteria, and while the exact symptoms depend on the bacteria, the most common issue is diarrhea.
That is where the probiotic benefits of Culturelle® can help. Taking one Culturelle probiotic capsule with Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG®) daily is shown to help manage acute infectious diarrhea – particularly when it comes to traveling with your kids. Give your child two Culturelle® Kids Daily Probiotic Packets or Culturelle® Kids Daily Probiotic Chewables daily for acute infectious diarrhea while symptoms persist. After symptoms subside, taking Culturelle probiotic daily could help promote the development of a natural healthy gut flora, restoring balance to the digestive system that the foreign bacteria disrupted. Plus, Culturelle® probiotics do not need to be refrigerated, making it especially convenient for an on-the-go lifestyle.
Be sure your family is fully prepared for your upcoming trip in two easy steps:
- Take Culturelle® probiotics daily leading up to your travels
- Be sure to pack Culturelle® with you!
With Culturelle®, you will be ready for any adventure!
