Making our own meals at home lets us have control over all the ingredients – particularly necessary for those of us who can be sensitive (rather than allergic or intolerant ) to things like wheat, gluten, or dairy, or even just those who can feel heavy and sluggish after rich meals. So what about when we head off on our holidays, when things like the language barrier or new foods can put a dampener on things?
‘Traveller’s tummy’ is a really common issue people can encounter when abroad, even if we previously would not experience digestive problems – all the new food, spices, preparation methods, and bacteria can wreak havoc with our digestion. Try to always stay hydrated with clean water, and invest in a good traveller’s probiotic to keep your own bacteria flourishing. You can take a probiotic for a couple of weeks before your departure, and bring them with you as well. Another great product is a complex of digestive enzymes – these can help support the body in breaking down rich foods using enzymes like amylase or bromelain.
Nature Plus GI Natural ticks all the boxes. This all-natural food supplement helps to soothe, heal, and rejuvenate the digestive system. It contains L-glutamine, a great amino acid which can help to strengthen the mucosal lining of the entire digestive tract, vital in helping to soothe many causes of digestive discomfort. It also contains highly beneficial probiotics, whole food enzymes, prebiotic fibre, and other essential co-factors that work to ensure total digestive wellness. You can pick this up in a powder form, or as handy tablets to take with you.
