Holidays are synonymous with rest, leisure and travel. During the holidays we have the opportunity to know new destinations, new cultures and new gastronomy.
Taking a trip can have several negative effects on your immune system. The further the destination and the more different the environmental factors - climate, food, disease - the greater the likelihood of having some health complications.
When we think about travel and luggage, we remember clothing and footwear, hygiene products, cameras, battery chargers, among other things, but we easily forget and neglect equally important and, indeed, essential, "fellow travelers" to bring only good memories of the vacation !!!
Go from there, we selected a pack of 7 supplements that can not miss in your suitcase to make your vacation memorable and of course...healthier!

Probiotic: Different foods and condiments, waters not always in the best conditions, change in bowel habits ... Result? Many travelers experience gastroenteritis with episodes of vomiting and diarrhea or, in other cases, constipation. To try to avoid this scenario, taking probiotics, that is, 'good bacteria' strengthens your digestive tract and your immune system.
