How can Travelan® help you?

When you take one or two caplets of Travelan® before a meal, it lays in wait in the gastrointestinal tract. If you consume food or drinks that are contaminated with diarrhea causing bacteria such as Enterotoxigenic E.Coli, 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.

Each caplet of Travelan® contains 200mg of “Hyperimmunised” Dairy (Bovine) Colostrum Powder which has been scientifically developed to be rich in antibodies against pathogenic bacteria. Bovine Colostrum Powder also contains other naturally occurring factors that have non-specific antimicrobial properties such as lactoferrin and lactoperoxidase which may aid in maintaining digestive health.

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-blinded placebo-controlled clinical trials in Europe and the USA. The trials showed protection of up to 90.3% against the onset of occasional diarrhea3. Clinical trials have shown that people who received Travelan® had significantly less discomfort and diarrhea than those who did not receive Travelan®.

In addition recent studies performed by the US Defense Force show that the anti-ETEC antibodies in Travelan® are cross-reactive against other diarrhea causing pathogenic bacteria such as Campylobacter, other strains of Enterotoxigenic E.coli and Shigella – all potential bacterial causes of diarrhea while travelling4.
