postheadericon Travelan, Every Travellers Best friend

For people from developed parts of the globe travelling to developing countries, there is a certain illness which is regarded as their most common enemy that can strip off all the productivity and enjoyment they can have during the course of their trip. This illness is called travellers diarrhoea (TD) or often called as bali belly, delhi belly, Montezumas revenge, Tourist trot, and other names. This particular travel nuisance is characterized by increased frequency in bowel movements (stools), accompanied with abdominal cramps, abdominal bloating, toilet urgencies, nausea, vomiting, mild fever and blood in stools or dysentery. And in general, TD can be caused by bacterial, viral or parasitic infection.

The thing here is, the reason why backpackers from developed countries such as Australia, Northern Europe, Japan, Canada, New Zealand and the USA are the ones being assaulted by this illness when they go to developing countries, is because of the sudden change of the organisms in their gastrointestinal tractorganisms that are not present in the environment they are used to and present in the country they are visiting. Another bad news is there is no available vaccine that can prevent travellers diarrhoea, though there are several treatments for diarrhoea present and being used today. However, this does not mean that travellers have to always worry that their trip will be ruined as there is a new clinically proven product available today that helps reduce the risk of TD caused by Enterotoxigenic (ETEC) E. coli (Escherichia coli) infection.

Travelan, is now deem best friend of every traveler going abroad, an Australian made mix of antibodies that fights against E. coli ETEC infection that is consumed in pill form before every meal. Its active ingredient Bovine Colostrums (cows breast milk) has anti-microbial properties that help against this particular infection along with other infectious agents. In scientific-speak, Travelan underwent stringent double-blinded, placebo-controlled trials in Europe and America, and the trials done have shown affirmative effects, as its specific ingredient provided up to 93% effectiveness in volunteers exposed to E. coli ETEC. The antibodies present in this supplement, work to restrain the ETECs attachment to the intestinal wall thereby preventing bacterial colonization of the bowel.
