Summer time is just about here — and so is travel season. Traveling is a lot of fun, but it’s also a time when you can get very sick. Planes are notorious for spreading bad bugs. But lack of sleep, different foods, and feeling run down can make you even more susceptible to catching colds and other illnesses. So here are three quick ways you can protect yourself as you travel.
(1) Have you ever noticed that traveling causes your stomach to feel bloated and uncomfortable? Different foods can cause the problem. But so can lower cabin pressure in the airplane. Airplanes keep their cabin pressure very low, so the gases in your stomach can expand. So you might feel bloated for a few days after you travel.
The best way to beat the bloat is to take care of your gut with supplements that can keep it working effectively no matter what you throw at it. This starts with probiotics, such as Advanced Probiotic Formula. You’re probably already taking a probiotic. But when you travel, it’s a good idea to double your dose. The extra good bacteria can keep you upright and feeling right.
Next, take enzymes, such as Integrative Digestive Formula, with each meal while you’re traveling. The enzymes will help you digest any strange foods and make sure your stomach is in good shape with all the changes.
(2) Another common problem with travel, especially if you’re going overseas or across the country is jet-lag. To avoid jet-lag, all you have to do is adapt to the new time zone as quickly as you can. That’s easier said than done sometimes, especially if you’re already struggling to sleep through the night. The best way to adapt quickly is to take a supplement like Advanced Sleep Formula to help you sleep through the night. This supplement contains melatonin (a known jet-lag destroyer), 5-HTP, and GABA - all of which will help you fall asleep quickly and stay asleep.

Once your jet-lag is gone, keep taking Advanced Sleep Formula through your entire trip and after you’ve returned. Sleep is the best weapon against acute illnesses. So sleeping well will help keep you healthy during your trip and afterward.
(3) One of the biggest downers that can occur while you travel is catching some random bacterial infections. So it’s vital you boost your immune system before and during your trip. You never know what you’ll run into or come across while traveling. You can take a high-quality Echinacea tablet, vitamin C, vitamin D, and other nutrients as you regularly do. But also consider taking medicinal mushrooms.
Medicinal mushrooms are fantastic immune boosters that can help you stay healthy year round - and especially when you travel. The mushrooms in MycoPhyto Complex were grown on immune boosting herbs, making them your best choice for fighting random infections, whether they’re bacterial or viral infections.
Whether you use these supplements from Advanced Bionutritionals or use other brands, make sure you're getting high-quality nutrients. The last thing you need is find out your nutrients don't offer you the protection you need as you travel.
