Quick Post: The Only 4 Supplements You Need While Traveling
You don’t have a ton of time to read everything that keeps getting blasted at you on the internet. But, there’s information out there that you don’t want to miss out on. So here’s a quick post letting you know about 4 supplements you need to take with you when you travel. You also don’t need to worry about taking a ton of supplements with you to stay healthy while you’re gone so just these 4 should be all you need!
#1 - PROBIOTIC
Why? It’s got a couple of applications. One is to maintain a healthy balance in your gut bacteria when you’re exposed to unfamiliar foods and the stress of travel. Another is if you come down with either a cold or a stomach bug. If either of those things happen, take 2, two or three times a day. It’ll boost your immune system and/or rebalance your gut. I love Dr. Mercola Complete Probiotic for a general, all purpose probiotic.
#2 - MAGNESIUM
My favorite form is magnesium glycinate because of it’s one of the easiest for your body to absorb. Reasons for bringing it along? It’s great for relieving migraines and other headaches, helps with insomnia, boosts memory (helpful to remember where you’re going!) and relaxes your central nervous system. It’s also involved in about 300 biochemical reactions in the body and unfortunately, most of us are deficient so supplementing with magnesium is an overall health booster. I like to take Pure Encapsulations Magnesium Glycinate - 1 in the morning with food, and 2 at night before bed.
#3 - GREENS PAK by TRACE MINERALS
I love the single serve packets! They contain green foods, vegetables, fruits, fiber, antioxidants, enzymes, etc, in a dehydrated mix you just pour in your water, shake and drink. It’s certified raw organic and vegan! The chocolate and berry flavors are really good. The reason to take it? It’s just a bit of an insurance policy to make sure you get something healthy into your body every day while you’re probably not eating your best. Here’s the link: Greens Pak
#4 - CURCUMIN
Of course, you could just eat curry every day (I could, and be extremely happy) but not always possible to find on the road. You’ll want to take it because it’s a powerful antioxidant, it fights inflammation, it protects the heart and boosts the brain. All good things when traveling! Take one of these each day Life Extension Super Bio Curcumin
Wishing you safe and healthy travels!
