Travelan® neutralises Travellers’ Diarrhoea causing bacteria, rather than having to treat the symptoms AFTER the condition has begun.
Travellers’ Diarrhoea continues to be the most frequent health problem in travellers1 and the most common causes include the bacterium Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) 2. Travellers’ Diarrhoea causing bacteria may be found in drinks and iceblocks, on the outside of fruit and vegetables, on the surface of eating utensils and anywhere contaminated water or poor hygiene has been used: from a street side stall to the finest of restaurants.
When you take one or two caplets of Travelan® before a meal, the anti-ETEC antibodies in the product lay in wait in the gastrointestinal tract. If you consume food or drinks that are contaminated with ETEC, the specific antibodies in Travelan® are designed to bind to the bacteria, neutralising them and inhibiting their attachment to the intestinal wall. Travelan® works to target and neutralise bacteria before they can make you sick and rob you of your precious holiday travel time.
