Vacation Vitamins: The Best Vitamins For Travel

Whether you're traveling for vacation or for business, the one thing that's most important is to enjoy the trip and stay healthy. Travel can be stressful and while we should always get our nutrients from food, we don't always have the perfect diet...especially when traveling.  
Here is a list of supplements that seem to make everyone's list of "must have" travel vitamins.  

Elderberry:  A powerful antioxidant. Several studies, including a double-blind study that involved international travelers indicate that it can reduce the duration of colds.* 

Vitamin C: You can get plenty of vitamin C by consuming fruits & vegetables. However, it’s easy to supplement with Vitamin C and it too  has been known to shorten the duration of colds.*✝︎  Vitamin C is water soluble which means your body will absorb what it needs and eliminate the rest.

Vitamin D: Lots of positive attention & press being written about the benefits of Vitamin D. Some of those benefits include increased cognition, immune health & bone health.* The number of people who are deficient in vitamin D is surprising, especially among older adults.

Probiotics: This is good bacteria for the gut. Our digestive systems often need a boost when we travel as the foods we eat (or drink) can change from our home routines. 

Magnesium:  This mineral can help relax the nervous system which may aid with anxiety and sleep.* Magnesium is also known to help with bowel movements.* There’s never a good time to be constipated, but while you’re on road it’s even worse.

Vitamin B12:  This vitamin may help boost energy for those with deficiencies.* Vegetarians & older adults are the people who are most likely to have a deficiency. Vitamin B12 is water soluble, which means if you have adequate levels your body will eliminate it. 

Zinc: Studies published at the National Library of Medicine indicate zinc supplementation can reduce the duration of a cold by almost 3 days.*  If you’re on a vacation, you want to get the most out of every day.

  • I initially bought these because I was going on a trip and didn’t want to make a bunch of baggies of vitamins. Done with the trip but now just use them everyday.
