Probiotics for Travelers Lighten the Load of Holiday Stress
Date:11/28/2012

SAN BRUNO, Calif., Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 'Tis the season to be jolly! However, the stress of travel and the tendency to overindulge in holiday cheer can bring about the unwanted gift of a tumultuous tummy. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that the number of travelers making long-distance trips increases by nearly 25% during the December holiday season, resulting in crowded airports and heavy traffic that can boost stress levels. Increased stress combined with interruptions to regular eating habits can wreak havoc on your stomach. Don't let tummy troubles impede on your holiday festivities. The incorporation of a daily probiotic supplement can help maintain digestive balance and support a healthy immune system that's ready to enjoy the holiday season.

"'Over the river and through the woods' to your final destination, be it grandma's cozy cabin or some exotic coast, means a trip that may be accompanied by fatigue, stress, and dehydration. These struggles, combined with the local delicacies or simply too many holiday treats, may lead to certain tummy troubles that threaten to put a damper on holiday festivities," said Kerry Neville, registered dietitian. "I recommend probiotics for travelers who want to maintain digestive health and support a healthy immune system to keep the body energized throughout the holiday season. My preference is Florastor®, a natural, yeast-based probiotic supplement that can act as a passport to optimal digestive function and support digestive balance to avoid tummy turbulence often caused by travel."

About Probiotic Supplements
Probiotic supplements help the good organisms in your intestines grow and get rid of the bad organisms that can disrupt normal intestinal function. Probiotic dietary supplements are grouped into two categories, yeast or bacteria, which interact with the body differently. Probiotic supplements containing bacteria are made up of different strains that are good for various tasks, so their effects may vary. Yeast-based Florastor® contains 250 mg of active Saccharomyces boulardii lyo, a friendly yeast found naturally on the skin of the tropical fruits lychee and mangosteen. Probiotic yeast like the yeast found in Florastor® can increase the production of immunoglobulin A (IgA), the primary infection-fighting antibody. This factor works to maintain a balanced digestive tract and support the function of the immune system. Additionally, unlike bacterial probiotics, yeast-based probiotics are not compromised by antibiotics. Most bacterial probiotic supplements require refrigeration, but the yeast in Florastor® does not, making Florastor® and Florastor®Kids ideal probiotics for traveling.

Florastor® is safe to take with antibiotics and has versatile options appropriate for adults and children as young as two months.
