How does Travelan work?
Travelan's active ingredient is Bovine Colostrum Powder, a rich source of antibodies that bind to ETEC in the gastrointestinal tract, preventing them from attaching to the intestinal wall and thereby neutralising their ability to cause TD and its associated symptoms.
When do I take Travelan?
Take one Travelan caplet immediately before every meal. Travelan should be used as an adjunct to normal travel hygiene practices: such as “Boil it, cook it, peel it.”
It will also work when taken soon after food or drink. Additional caplets may be taken when increased cover is required, eg. when snacking between meals or if circumstances suggest an increased risk of infection.
Has Travelan been clinically tested?
Yes. Travelan has undergone independent double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trials in Europe and the USA.
The trials showed protection of up to 90% against infection with the type of E.coli that causes TD. In addition trials showed a significant reduction in abdominal cramps and stomach pain compared to those who did not receive Travelan. There were no reported side effects in the clinical trials.
