There are a number of blogs and webpages that deliver sage wisdom for the business traveler. They offer sound advice on what to pack, how to upgrade your seats and how to access free wifi in airports around the world. While this information certainly has its benefits, very few resources tackle the issue of getting sick, or more specifically, catching a bout of the dreaded travelers diarrhea (TD) while doing business abroad.
It’s a bit of an uncomfortable subject but it happens, and it’s more common than one would imagine. In fact, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 10 million people (between 20 and 50% of international travelers) develop TD each year, with a large number of that figure consisting of business travelers. It’s one thing having a vacation ruined by an upset stomach, but quite another losing a critical deal by being locked in the hotel lobby toilet. Fortunately, there is a secret weapon to combat this ever present threat while on business abroad.
The answer is Travelan, a pro-active approach to keeping your stomach protected, wherever you may go. Available at leading pharmacies, Travelan’s active ingredient, Bovine Colostrum Powder, is rich in antibodies that bind to the harmful strains of E. coli in the gastrointestinal tract, preventing them from attaching to the intestinal wall – thereby neutralizing their ability to cause diarrhea and its associated symptoms. So now you can enjoy lunch or dinner meetings without the fear of repercussions.Beyond the food you will eat abroad, danger could be lurking in each handshake regardless of where your business takes you.

Beyond the food you will eat abroad, danger could be lurking in each handshake regardless of where your business takes you. By pre-empting the risks, and preparing yourself by packing Travelan, you can minimize the chance of succumbing to the dreaded TD – and minimizing risk is simply clever business.
