Summer travel usually means beaches, sun, sand, play and relaxation. It can also mean long car rides, delayed flights and less sleep, wreaking havoc on your immune system. Eating healthfully, drinking plenty of water and getting 7-8 hours of sleep per night can certainly keep you healthy and strong while traveling, but did you know that probiotics also support the fight against colds, viruses and other bugs that you may contract from that hotel room or airplane seat?
We typically think of bacteria as being only a bad thing. But did you know that probiotics are actually bacterial strains that keep our immune systems strong? It’s not all bacteria that are bad, but rather the imbalance of good bacteria (probiotics) and bad bacteria that leads to disease. Taking the right probiotic can support a healthy bacterial balance and immune system, boosting your fight against illness.
Which Probiotics Should You Take?
The great thing about probiotics is that each strain and compilation of strains supports different immune and bodily functions. High stress with lots of travel can require a certain level of support best achieved by taking a supplement with a variety of probiotic strains. And taking a combination of several strains versus one or two single strains has been shown to keep digestion smooth and the immune system strong against viruses, colds and other bugs.
