Hit the Road with Travelers' Probiotic

It seems like a rite of passage for many families with children approaching their teen years to embark on one last “road-trip vacation,” where the parents market the family-bonding aspect of travel as being just as fun as exploring the “great outdoors.”

Traveling within North America is relatively safe from a health perspective compared to travelling abroad; however, travelers’ diarrhea can still make family fun come to a grinding halt. Traveler’s sickness can result in extreme cases such as giardiasis, a water-borne parasitic infection commonly known as “beaver fever.” Even when caution is taken regarding drinking water, an unexpected gulp of lake water, or simply brushing teeth with nonpotable water from a campsite restroom, can cause digestive distress caused by a broad range of pathogenic microorganisms.

While we prepare for the many adventures we’ll experience during our trip, we must also consider the countless microbes that will be paying a visit to our intestines.

New Roots Herbal’s Travelers’ Probiotic is the ideal travel companion for digestive peace of mind. It’s a hybrid formula featuring 10 billion live cells of the transient yeast Saccharomyces boulardii, with 11 billion CFUs of our proprietary broad-spectrum probiotic blend.

Here’s how it works: Saccharomyces boulardii crowds out harmful bacteria while neutralizing their toxins. Meanwhile, the predominant Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium strains within the formula replenish and maintain the dominance of beneficial bacteria along the entire gastrointestinal tract. This limits adhesion sites for pathogens, competes for nutrients, and strengthens immune performance. Probiotics also stimulate production of mucin, a protein that forms the matrix of the protective mucous membrane within the intestines. This regulates selective permeability for improved resistance to infection. Better yet: our natural, water-based enteric coating protects the contents of every capsule from stomach acids for selective release within the intestines.

Here’s wishing you “safe travels” this summer! Enjoy and explore, while Travelers’ Probiotic ensures any harmful microorganisms you encounter will be just passing through instead of calling your intestines home.
