Ready for that well-deserved vacation? We couldn’t be happier that you are finally getting some of that Vitamin Sea. However, what are some of the best supplements for travelling – which ones should you absolutely take with you?
When it comes to essentials you need to bring with, packing vitamins is more important for your next vacation than bringing your smart watch. Don’t lose track of your health while you sit long hours in your car or on the airplane!
No matter where you go, it is vital that your body has what it needs. Here are the best vitamins you can take with you on the next trip!
What are the best supplements for travelling?
Vitamin C – perfect travel companion
Please, don’t go anywhere without vitamin C! Vitamin C is one of the best supplements you can take when travelling. You want to make sure your immune system is protected. Studies of NICE (National Institute for Health and Care excellence) show that people who take vitamin C while traveling are less likely to contract viral infections on their vacation.
Our body can’t produce this vitamin – we have to get it from food or in supplemental form. We need this powerful antioxidant for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of our bodies.
Low vitamin C levels can cause a weakened immune system, something you definitely want to avoid when traveling.
Since your body cannot absorb more than a few hundred mg at a time, we have a wonderful product which is travel-size and contains 250 mg of vitamin C per dose:
Goodwill Pharma’s VITAMIN C 250 Direct Albert Szent-Györgyi Granules are a perfect travel companion, and a powdered drink with quick absorbing power. Take it during your travel to fight off viral diseases.
Vitamin D – the sunshine supplement
Vitamin D has got much attention recently when it comes to immunity. Plenty of research (University of Harvard and NHS UK) has shown the significance of vitamin D levels in our body.
Our body makes vitamin D when sunlight reaches the skin. You can also get it from food or by taking a supplement.
Sometimes, however, it is hard to get enough vitamin D this way.
In the UK where we have so many rainy, cloudy days, or while travelling to colder climates your body will need more of this vitamin. The first step is to take a vitamin D supplement prior to leaving and pack it in your suitcase to have with you on the road.
Digestion supplements – no lag allowed when travelling
Digestive issues a traveller can experience are maybe one of the worst things that can happen while visiting other countries. On the other hand, if you like to eat spicy food or explore exotic cuisines, a digestion aid can be of great help. Keep your gut healthy and improve your digestion with our Pepto soda and Enzimax, and thank us later!
To this end, digestive enzymes are essential for nutrition and great health – helping your body absorb nutrients from the foods you eat. Without the enzymes, certain foods lead to uncomfortable symptoms, food intolerances and nutritional deficiencies.
Enzyme deficiencies are usually caused by lifestyle factors – but jetlag can cause them, too. They are the usual suspect for a variety of digestive discomforts, including occasional flatulence, bloating, and indigestion.
Our Enzimax formula helps to break down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It is a superior combo of 7 digestive enzymes in perfect harmony.
Digestive issues don’t have to be as severe as the ones mentioned above. Occasional acid reflux, heartburn, and indigestion are common – and although not as bad, they can be uncomfortable enough to ruin your vacation.
If you suffer from these, and still want to enjoy travelling, you need a handy supplement you can take anywhere on your travel adventures. Goodwill Pharma’s Pepto Soda is a pleasant fizzy drink for digestive challenges. It is best for indigestion, acid reflux, heartburn, and milder digestive issues. Each tablet is separately packed in a sachet – ideal for your travel escapades!
Take Pepto Soda 1-2 hours after your meal, because it’s really helpful for digesting food – even after that tempting extra cheese + extra sour cream + extra ice cream combo!
Magnesium – best supplement for relaxation
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body – it is a building block for over 350 biochemical processes. It is estimated that over 80 percent of the population does not get the recommended daily doses of this mineral. Magnesium deficiency could affect every system in the body.
Travelling or not, It is vital that we get optimal doses of high-quality magnesium regularly. It helps your cognitive functions, promotes healthy bones and teeth, electrolyte balance and normal functioning of the nervous system, and it will even relieve several digestive problems.
Goodwill Pharma’s Magnewill can be your secret weapon for wellness this summer! Produced from three highly bioavailable magnesium salts, it contains an optimal dose of this element so that you can reap all the benefits it has to offer.
Magnesium drives normal muscle functions, contributes to the healthy nervous system and the overall levels of energy. Muscle cramps, anxiety and fatigue – you won’t remember these while you travel! Magnesium is one of the best supplements you can take when travelling.
The good news is: you can get magnesium from chocolate, too! So let’s take your powdered supplement and then get some chocolate while you are on vacation!
