Have you ever left home in the pink of health, only to succumb to a persistent digestive disturbance soon into your vacation or business trip? In addition to the bacterial, parasite, or viral contaminations underlying Travellers' diarrhea (which will be less likely to get rooted in the lining of your gastrointestinal tract if you take these beneficial microorganisms in advance to 'crowd them out'), these disturbances can also be triggered by changes in the composition of your own intestinal microflora induced by antibiotic use, stress, and/or alterations in your diet and daily rhythms (which this combination of five hardy and well-tolerated strains can also help remedy by promoting a favourable balance of gut flora).

Have you ever left home in the pink of health, only to succumb to a persistent digestive disturbance soon into your vacation or business trip? In addition to the bacterial, parasite, or viral contaminations underlying Travellers' diarrhea (which will be less likely to get rooted in the lining of your gastrointestinal tract if you take these beneficial microorganisms in advance to 'crowd them out'), these disturbances can also be triggered by changes in the composition of your own intestinal microflora induced by antibiotic use, stress, and/or alterations in your diet and daily rhythms (which this combination of five hardy and well-tolerated strains can also help remedy by promoting a favourable balance of gut flora).

Product Notes:

For those who may be traveling to places where you may not have access to a fridge (or where you may not want your host to be aware of or offended by your decision to take them), this is a blend of five probiotic strains which do not require constant refrigeration to ensure their viability and stability, in a convenient capsule format that you can take easily and discreetly, anywhere.

The predominant type, Saccharomyces boulardii, is actually a type of yeast, rather than a bacterium, but it has proven to be quite able to help prevent and treat several types of diarrhea, including both Traveler's diarrhea and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.

The remaining types -- the HMF® (Human MicroFlora) entourage -- are all high quality, high viability proprietary strains which have been sourced from humans (and are thus known to be compatible with the human gastrointestinal tract). They have been studied extensively (including in randomized, placebo-controlled human clinical trials), and demonstrated to be able to adhere to the gut lining better and colonize the intestinal environment with friendly bacteria more efficiently than some other types.
