List of the Best 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.

If you want to do your homework on the research cited in this article, I’ve made it easy for you and have compiled a list of studies on the Science-Research area of the site. Feel free to search around for other lists of “must have travel vitamins”. No two lists are the same, but they will generally list some or all of the supplements listed here. A few may tout some “exotic” supplements you haven’t heard about. Our formulation is based on well-researched and doctor recommended supplements.
Regardless if you try our premium vitamin packs or not, wish you safe travels and good health.
