Ever been on holiday abroad and suffered with an upset tummy?
It’s common to blame foreign bugs in either the food or the water, thinking that the local hygiene standards are not the same as ‘back home’, but in fact, this is rarely the case (unless you’ve had a really dodgy meal) because it’s largely due to the difference in the mineral content of the local water. Sure, most of us will drink bottled water, but what about the ice cubes in your drinks? Your sensitive gut tends to react with symptoms ranging from mild indigestion to chronic diarrhoea.
People who are susceptical to gut problems abroad usually take various potions with them of course – things that help put them right after the event. And that’s fine. However, there is a preventative alternative. If you build up your gut’s ‘good bacteria’ before you travel, you are far less likely to be stricken during your holiday. So, how does this work?
‘Dr Peter’s’ recommendation is a 4-week regime of PREBIOTIC (Aloe Vera drink – code 715) and PROBIOTIC (Pro-B tabs – code 610). The prebiotic creates the correct gut environment for the proliferation of all the ‘good’ bacteria, and this Probiotic contains the 6 most important & beneficial strains of friendly bacteria in a tablet form, not requiring refrigeration, which is designed to bypass the stomach and be released in the large intestine, where it does its work.
So, ‘Dr Peter’s’ prescription is this: – One week before your holiday departure, start taking a daily dose of one Pro-B tablet and 100ml of Aloe first thing in the morning and continue for 4 weeks – i.e. take them with you on your 2 week holiday, and continue for one week after your return.
