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.
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.
