Must-Have Supplements for Travel

Updated: Jun 27

I love vacation as much as the next person, but one thing I don't love is getting sick on vacation. If you're anything like me and have sensitive everything - sensitive stomach, sensitive skin, sensitive to scents, ... - then it can be tricky to travel sometimes.


Enter: The Ultimate Travel Wellness Kit


Over the past few years, I've been travelling with my 'Travel Wellness Kit' which has everything in it like supplements, meds, bandaids, essential oils, creams, etc.


This kit has saved me a few times from nausea, food poisoning, sunburns and more. So if you've been looking for what to pack in your wellness kit, here are my go-to items to stay healthy when on the road:

Anti-Nausea

Ginger

Ginger has been used in various forms of traditional and alternative medicine for many years. It’s mostly known to aid digestion, reduce nausea, and support the immune system.


My favourites:

  • Ginger chews by Chimes

  • Ginger SAP by NFH

  • Chewable Ginger 500mg by Natural Factors

Homeopathic for Motion Sickness

Great remedy for nausea, dizziness, vomiting, sour stomach, and headache associated with motion sickness. I take this before getting on a plane, a boat or in a car because sometimes the rocking can make me nauseous.


My favourite:

  • Motion Sickness by Hyland's


Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is a black, odourless, flavourless powder that has been used since ancient times to treat various ailments. I like to travel with it for various reasons. When travelling you’ll usually be eating and drinking things you don’t normally eat and drink. If by any chance you get food poisoning, diarrhea from poorly filtered water, or even just a nasty hangover, activated charcoal is my go-to. It will soak everything up, bind it and get rid of it.


My favourites:

  • Activated Charcoal by Organika

  • Activated Charcoal by Integrative Therapeutics


Digestion

Probiotics

Helpful for everything from digestion to immune support to great mood.


My favourite:

  • HMF Travel by Genestra


Magnesium Citrate

This is my go-to if you get travel constipation. It’s a great alternative to a stool softener. Magnesium citrate specifically draws water into the bowels and softens stools. It also helps to relax bowel spasms and prevent cramping as well. Start with 150mg to 300mg (1-2 capsules).


My favourites:

  • Magnesium Citrate by Natural Factors

  • Magnesium Citrate SAP by NFH

  • Magnesium Citrate by Douglas Labs

Digestive enzymes

When travelling we usually eat all sorts of foods we don’t normally eat back home, I know I do anyways. I enjoy most things in moderation. So if I ate something that causes bloating or if i know it’s going to be a big meal, I’ll take 2 enzymes with the meal to avoid the digestive distress.


My favourites:

  • Digestzymes™ by Designs for Health

  • DigeZyme™ by Alpha Science Labs (Vegetarian)

  • Digestive Enzymes Ultra by Pure Encapsulations (Vegetarian)


Sleep

Melatonin

Your body already produces melatonin to manage your sleep cycle. But if you’re trying to fall asleep at a different hour than you’re used to, supplementing with some melatonin can help.


My favourites:

  • Melatonin 3 mg Peppermint by Natural Factors (dissolves under tongue)

  • Melatonin P.R. 3mg by Douglas Labs (dissolves under tongue)


Immune

Vitamin C

For convenience purposes while travelling I like the Ener-C packets of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is great for supporting your immune system and preventing constipation.


My favourites:

  • Ener-C

  • HMF Immune by Genestra (Probiotics + Vitamin C)

  • Hyperbiotics Immune by Hyperbiotics (Probiotics + Vitamin C)

  • Vitamin C by AOR

  • Liposomal Vitamin C by Dr. Mercola Premium Products

  • Liposomal Vitamin C by Nano Vitamins


Stress

L-Theanine

If you get nervous while travelling, this supplement will come in handy. It’s great for anxiety and panic attacks for instant calm.


My favourite:

  • Calm-Pro Chewable by Bioclinic Naturals


Miscellaneous

Greens Powder

My favourite:


Protein Powder

My favourite:


Electrolytes

Great for extra hydration

  • Great for wound care/skin health (treat burns, thrush, periodontitis, acne, etc.)

  • Pink eye/ear infections

  • Anti-inflammatory
