Travla is a proven formulation of unique probiotic strains designed to support the traveller’s digestive health and immunity while abroad.
When eating and drinking unfamiliar foods in foreign environments it pays to maintain a healthy coating of friendly bacteria in the intestines to support natural immunity and digestive health. Travla gives travellers the increased confidence to enjoy their trips abroad anxiety-free.
How does Travla work?
Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 – a natural component of the friendly bacteria in the intestines; the species is one of the most studied in the probiotic world. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 has been proven to resist bile and gastric acidity over pH 3 – therefore if taken at mealtimes (when pH is around 4), it will pass through the stomach without being damaged. L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 is able to bind strongly to the intestinal cells and helps maintain a strong immune system.
Saccharomyces boulardii – a unique probiotic yeast which is sold widely in the US, Scandinavia, Germany & France. S. boulardii has undergone extensive clinical research proving its ability to flush out pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli and salmonella (responsible for 70% of Traveller’s Diarrhoea) and to have therapeutic benefits against diarrhoea.
Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 – a natural resident of the intestinal microflora; this strain of friendly bacteria has been well studied to survive the gastric acids and bile salts expected at mealtimes and to reach the intestines without damage. In addition, L. acidophilus Rosell-52 can adhere to the cell wall lining of the intestines and exert beneficial effects in terms of inhibiting intestinal pathogens and supporting immune cells.
Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175 – Colonises primarily in the large intestine (or colon). In this region they promote the production of antibodies, support the body against toxins and inhibit the development of undesirable bacteria by competitively excluding their attachment to the intestinal surface.
Did you know that each of us has around 100,000,000,000,000 bacteria in our intestines?
That is 10 times the number of cells in our body, and can weigh around 1.5 kg! This ‘microflora’ consists of both friendly probiotic bacteria and bad pathogenic bacteria that co-exist in a complex ecosystem. Having a healthy balance of probiotics over pathogens plays an important role in digestion and immunity.
Friendly bacteria support digestion in several capacities. A healthy balance of friendly bacteria in the intestines provides specific enzymes needed in the digestion of particular substances, produces B complex vitamins and vitamin K, and improves the absorption and uptake of minerals and nutrients in the diet.
A healthy balance of friendly bacteria also helps maintain overall immunity as up to two-thirds of the body’s immunity is managed in the intestines. Where there is a healthy balance of friendly bacteria in the intestines, acidity is high which hinders the growth and survival of bad bacteria, and enables the growth of friendly bacteria to multiply and exclude the bad bacteria.
However, the balance of bacteria in the intestines is fragile and can easily be disrupted by several factors such as ageing, antibiotics, environment and diet.
With exotic travel on the rise an increased number of holiday makers and business travellers are consuming food and drink in unfamiliar environments. In tropical and sub-tropical countries, especially where levels of hygiene are lower, ingesting food and drink contaminated by harmful bacteria such as Salmonella and pathogenic strains of Escherichia coli (E.coli) is not uncommon.
With Travla, travellers can depart with a healthy and balanced coat of friendly bacteria in their intestines to maintain digestive health and immunity throughout their travels. Travla is a unique probiotic preparation that helps to maintain digestive health and immunity while abroad.

I have just returned from a trip to Egypt. I travel to Egypt every year and each year I suffer from a bad tummy in spite of being very careful in what I eat and drink. This year I decided to take Travla and for the first time my tummy was trouble free. I would recommend to anyone who has experienced bad tummy when travelling abroad to take Travla as I will certainly be taking it during my future trips – Shahab, London
