Here are some easy ways to help your digestive system when you travel:
Increase your fermented foods and take a daily probiotic before, during, and after travel. This is particularly important in preventing and treating traveller’s diarrhoea.
Stay hydrated. Your digestive system needs hydration to move smoothly. Herbal tea bags and a non-plastic water bottle are great additions in your carry-on.
Pack healthy snacks for the plane journey. What about including cut fruit, veggie sticks, seaweed, bliss balls, miso sachets as some examples.
Eat less than normal on the plane to help your gut cope with the stresses of flying and time zone changes.
Increase your plant fibre intake – a green smoothie is perfect on arrival.
Prioritise morning sunshine to recalibrate your body’s circadian rhythm.
Moving your body means moving your digestive system – it doesn’t have to be high intensity – walking, swimming or stretching are great options.
Prepare a gut rescue travel kit to include digestive enzymes, activated coconut charcoal tablets, magnesium, liposomal C, and our Probiotic+ Elderberry Boost which comes in convenient, travel friendly sachets. Elderberry Boost travels well in your suitcase, remember to pop them in the hotel fridge on arrival and take 1 sachet daily.
