How can Travelan® help you?

Travelan® is a gluten free product that has clinically proven strength for digestive tract protection. Travelan® reduces the risk of occasional diarrhea and helps to neutralize gastrointestinal issues before they begin, leaving you to enjoy life’s adventures.

 How does Travelan® work?

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 diarrhea causing bacteria such as Enterotoxigenic E.coli (ETEC), Travelan® utilizes specific antibodies to bind the bacteria, neutralizing them and inhibiting their attachment to the intestinal wall.

In short, Travelan® is designed to target and neutralise bacteria before they can make you sick.

Diarrhea causing bateria in the gastrointestinal tract:

Occasional diarrhea is caused by the consumption of food or water infected with bacteria. These bacteria attack the intestines releasing diarrhea-causing toxins.

Travelan® binds to E.coli in the gastrointestinal tract preventing them from attaching to the intestinal wall and thereby neutralizing their ability to cause diarrhea and its associated symptoms.

Scientific Evidence

Travelan® has demonstrated in clinical trials to significantly decrease the risk of occasional diarrhea and also 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 90.3% against the onset of occasional diarrhea3. Clinical trials have also shown that people who received Travelan®  had significantly less discomfort and diarrhea than those who did not receive Travelan®.

In addition recent studies by the US Department of Defense show that Travelan® is cross-reactive to other pathogenic bacteria such as Campylobacter, Enterotoxigenic E.coli and Shigella 2 – all potential bacterial causes of diarrhea while traveling4.
