How many of us have gone on holiday and ended up getting a stomach bug or flu like symptoms?

Many things can affect our bodies, like the change of weather conditions, air conditioning, especially if you have it on throughout the night, lack of refrigerated foods, drinking water, parasites and other.

The only thing we can do is make sure that we prepare ourselves as best we can to make recovery time less, or if caught in time, you may nip it in the bud, like diarrhoea or flu.

I always take my supplements on holiday with me and an immune busting supplement called Beta Glucan.

Beta Glucan 1, 3 – 1, 6, as supplied by Native Elements, works with the body‘s first line of defence that consists primarily of key immune cells.

Several materials in nature contain Glucans, such as certain mushrooms and oats, but only Baker’s yeast contains the 1, 3/1, 6 linkage. Taking this during an onset of a sore throat, or a stomach bug, (as an example) has been known to shorten recovery time or stop it from becoming worse.

You can get a pill dispenser to last you one or two weeks to cover your vacation time, children can also be given one tablet (recommended age 5 and over). Capsules can even be split apart to make it easier for children to swallow.

Two may be taken if needed; this will depend on the severity of the cold or diarrhoea. I always recommend start with one first.

If the apartment where you are staying does have air conditioning, try to leave it on when you’re out and lower it on your return. If children or adults are asthmatic, I also would recommend not leaving it on at full blast during the night as this may trigger asthma and prevent a viral infection (in the chest).
