Travelers Diarrhea – How to Have a Carefree Vacation?

Summer has arrived and with it the time of holidays and vacations. Considering the unstable situation with Covid-19, the majority of citizens decide to spend their holidays within the borders of our country, visiting our beautiful spas, mountains, villages, camps, or lakes. This is a really beautiful and unique opportunity to visit all the beauties of our country and get to know it better. A family vacation is a special pleasure, full of beautiful memories. Still, be prepared for minor problems, including health problems like travelers diarrhea.  This problem can occur due to many different reasons. 

Why are Stomach Problems so Common During Vacations?

Summer is the time of stomach viruses and the most common health problem during vacations, although respiratory infections can also be present. High outside temperatures lead to the spoilage of food, and the composition of the local water (although microbiologically and chemically correct) can cause us discomfort, nausea, and vomiting often occur while driving, and hygiene is different from what we are used to at home. 

Travelers diarrhea occurs in 20-50% of travelers and is the most common disease of tourists. The infection is mainly caused by the bacteria E.Coli, Shigella, and Salmonella, as well as rotaviruses. Travelers diarrhea is characterized by a high fever, severe abdominal pain, frequent stools, and vomiting.

How to Prevent Travelers Diarrhea? 

The simplest and the best prevention is regular hand washing and maintaining personal hygiene, taking care of your diet, using bottled water, do not use thermally processed foods or those of dubious origin. Store perishable food in the refrigerator, and wash fresh fruits and vegetables well before usage. 

Sometimes, besides all the precautions, traveler’s diarrhea occurs. 

Is There Any Supplement That Can Prevent Travelers Diarrhea and Alleviate Its Symptoms?

According to pediatrician Dr. Jadranka Crnomarkovic-Lunic, it exists and is called Kolostrum Extra. It is rich in probiotic strains, immunoglobulins, growth factors, lactoferrin, vitamins, and minerals. It acts on the entire organism, raising immunity and providing protection against respiratory and stomach viruses. It is especially suitable for children. In the case of diarrhea, it has a protective effect on the mucous membrane of the digestive tract and helps restore the intestinal flora. Scientific studies show that travelers diarrhea can be prevented in 70% of cases if colostrum-based supplements are used a few days before and during the vacation.

 

Lactoferrin present in colostrum reduces the reproduction of viruses and bacteria, and has an immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effect, protecting you and your children from unpleasant ailments caused by various infectious agents. Also interesting is the fact that lactoferrin is being clinically tested with the currently active SARS-CoV-2 (corona) virus. Furthermore, immunoglobulins (antibodies) present in colostrum create protection in the mucous membrane of the oral cavity, reducing the penetration of pathogenic organisms. 

The usage of Kolostrum Extra leads to a reduced incidence of digestive and respiratory infections, boosts your immune system, and protects you from all harmful infectious influences from the outside environment. Strong immunity is a guarantee for the good health of you and your little ones. 

 

Kolostrum Extra represents your ally during the trip, enabling a carefree trip, and vacation, and creating memories that will be recounted for a long time.
