Altaflora And Travellers Diarrhoea by ALTA CARE Laboratoires

Travel agencies are daily trying to capture our imagination and entice us to visit some beautiful destination in one of the four corners of the world. Publications are full of offers for wonderful cruises to diverse destinations, from Alaska, Asia to Africa.

Whether you are seeking a family holiday, a cultural tour, an adventure holiday, a relaxing cruise, a pilgrimage, whatever, there is one very important factor that you have to bear in mind prior, or during your trip - FOOD. Food has to be taken very, very seriously!

One of the pleasures of traveling is definitely experiencing the cuisine of another country. But every traveler must be conscious of the fact that every country, and even more, every culture and every continent, has its different culinary traditions. This you surely know. What you may not know is that although all the intestines of all human beings possess bacterial flora that perform a variety of functions, the flora of people of different continents tend to differ; the flora of Europeans is different from that of Asians, or that of Arabs. This is the result of different staple food, diets, etc. Flora may even differ between Europeans themselves.

Flora is the tiny, ever-busy microorganisms that inhabit our digestive system. This flora helps us to digest and absorb our food, support our immune system, detoxify noxious compounds and even contribute to the manufacture of essential vitamins. A probiotic is a food-supplement containing live beneficial microbes that can be used to fortify or rebuild our own natural flora. A probiotic is needed to keep the balance of intestinal flora tipped toward the positive side, because contrasting the beneficial flora are the bacteria, viruses, fungi and protozoa, all in some way implicated in various diseases.

Ignoring flora when traveling often leads to an inconvenient bout of diarrhoea. Traveling to certain countries we are always reminded to avoid drinking tap water. But food is ignored, even when traveling to warmer countries like Florida, the Middle East, North Africa, South America, Asia and the like. Hot temperatures cause a loss of electrolytes and consequently loss of energy; now energy is something you can’t do without especially when traveling.

So dear traveler do make it point to strengthen your gut if you want to put your mind at rest before or during your holiday. ALTFLORA ELECTROLYTES of Alta Care Laboratoires is indicated first of all in cases of diarrhoea and dehydration. It will not only replace flora but also the electrolytes. These powder sachets contain lactobacilli that are easily soluble and have an excellent vanilla taste. Altaflora Electrolytes is also a treatment for inappropriate diets, stress, aging, and peristaltic disorders that cause indigestion, flatulence, constipation and gastro-enteritis.

Having Altaflora Electrolytes well before embarking on a journey, and carrying a box with you throughout the trip is a must. Suffering diarrhoea in a plane, in a coach, on a ship, wherever, is not nice at all. Watching other people sitting at table and having delicious meals while you are suffering such an inconvenience is not at all pleasant; not to mention the expenses incurred.

When visiting certain countries a vaccine is often obligatory; likewise you have to make sure that when traveling to any country your stomach and intestine are well-prepared and well-equipped for any eventuality. Altaflora Electrolytes by Alta Care Laboratoires will ensure that you enjoy the culinary pleasures of the country or continent you will be visiting next. One of the nicest things when on holiday is to taste the typical food of the country and Altaflora will guarantee your intestine is ready for new types of food.
