Who is OMNi-BiOTiC® TRAVEL suitable for?Whilst abroad, the digestive system can easily become unbalanced by various external influences (such as new kinds of foods or a change in the daily rhythm). It becomes even more unpleasant if foreign microorganisms from water, ice cubes or also just from salads and unpeeled fruit get into the digestive system – and the intestines try to get rid of these invaders. Whereas the most frequent diarrhoea pathogens, namely all ETEC strains, are simply unpleasant but self-limiting, (the microorganisms excrete themselves along with the diarrhoea), an infection with salmonella, shigella or campylobacter can be more problematic. Therefore, alongside all the other usual holiday preparations, you should not forget to prepare your intestine for the journey – experts recommend special multi-species synbiotics.
How does OMNi-BiOTiC® TRAVEL work?OMNi-BiOTiC® TRAVEL contains a highly-active mixture of seven specially selected bacterial strains with 5 billion highly active “helpers” (intestinal bacteria) per serving, so that you can enjoy every day of your trip. A special feature of OMNi-BiOTiC® TRAVEL is the matrix in which the bacteria are embedded: enzymes and fibre massively stimulate the activity of the synbiotic helpers and guarantee their survival in the hostile environment of the stomach and duodenum – entirely without chemical technical agents such as capsules or coatings.
How is OMNi-BiOTiC® TRAVEL taken?It is best if you start a few days before the journey by taking 1 sachet of OMNi-BiOTiC® TRAVEL (= 5 g) daily in the morning before breakfast. Stir the powder into a glass of water (approx. 125 mL) at room temperature, milk, tea or yoghurt, wait at least 1 minute for it to activate, stir again and then drink. Continue this procedure for the whole trip. If you suffer from fructose intolerance, you should prolong the activation time to at least 30 minutes. During this time the bacteria metabolise the fructooligosaccharides. Therefore no fructose gets into the intestine.
