“Don’t forget to pack your Saccharomyces Boulardii”

Off to some exotic, far-flung destination and planning your packing? It’s all very well focusing on your travel beauty essentials, your new bikini (or board shorts), and as many chic ensembles you can squeeze in for all the envy-inducing instagram images you plan to post … But, things won’t be so glamorous if you get ‘traveller’s tummy’. The nutrition experts at Cytoplan recommend Saccharomyces Boulardii, a probiotic supplement of live, native ‘good’ bacteria. 

Memorable for all the wrong reasons, a bout of Delhi Belly, Montezuma’s Revenge, Turkey Trots – or however you refer to diarrhoea, gastric cramps and vomiting – is no laughing matter. A very common travel-related illness, it can be dangerous and cause severe dehydration and possibly malnutrition.

Yes, avoiding the local water is always recommended, but more than that, Cytoplan makes a very strong case for prevention by bolstering your natural immunity.  This means fortifying the bowel where much of your immune system is based. Saccharomyces Boulardii is a secret weapon for obtaining great gut health, and the perfect pocket-sized prevention supplement for travellers.

One of the best ways to avoid getting ‘traveller’s tummy’ is to take Saccharomyces Boulardii: a unique, natural and safe microorganism, which has evolved in the human food chain since ancestral times, and has been used worldwide as a food supplement for more than half a century. Suitable for adults and children, as well as vegans and people with candida or lactose sensitivities, each capsule contains five billion live viable colonies of Saccharomyces Boulardii. The capsule works by introducing beneficial active cultures into the large and small intestine, as well as helping the gut protect itself against unwanted bacterial intruders.

Saccharomyces Boulardii can survive the stomach acid and bile found in the digestive tract without colonising it. Unlike other types of bacteria, Saccharomyces Boulardii is also antibiotic resistant, and so it is a good idea to take it after a course of antibiotics, as a way of ensuring optimal gut health, since antibiotics often leave the body depleted of beneficial bacteria.

For best results, Amanda Williams, Managing Director of Cytoplan recommends you start taking Saccharomyces Boulardii for at least 7 days before the start of your trip and continue to do so whilst traveling until at least 7 days following the end of your travels.  

It is also recommended that you combine this with a good quality multi vitamin and mineral supplement for additional nutritional support.  A big bonus is that Saccharomyces Boulardii is easy to take with you.  It has undergone ‘lyophilisation’, a form of freeze-drying, so does not need to be refrigerated.  Just keep it stored in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.
