How does Travelan® work?

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.

Scientific Evidence – up to 90% protection

Travelan® has been shown in clinical trials to significantly decrease the risk of Travellers’ Diarrhoea (TD) and to decrease the symptoms of minor gastrointestinal disorders. Travelan® underwent Controlled Human Infection Model (CHIM) studies  which were  double-blind, placebo-controlled medical trials in Europe and the USA. The trials showed protection of up to 90% against infection with E.coli (ETEC) 3and the development of Travellers’ Diarrhoea. The clinical trials showed that people affected by E.coli who received Travelan® had significantly less discomfort and diarrhoea, compared to those who did not receive Travelan®.

In addition recent studies by the US Defense Force show that Travelan® is cross-reactive to other pathogenic bacteria such as Campylobacter, Enterotoxigenic E.coli and Shigella – all potential causes of Travellers’ Diarrhoea4.

Travellers’ Diarrhoea-causing bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract

Travellers’ Diarrhoea is caused by the consumption of food or water infected with bacteria. These bacteria attack the intestines releasing diarrhoea-causing toxins. Travelan® binds to E.coli in the gastrointestinal tract, preventing them from attaching to the intestinal wall and thereby neutralising their ability to cause diarrhoea and its associated symptoms.

Travelan®’s active ingredient is bovine colostrum enriched with anti-E.coli antibodies – these special antibodies are what set it apart from other colostrum supplements. Travelan® is antimicrobial and not an antibiotic, therefore it will not cause antibiotic resistance.
