When you’re traveling the last thing you want is to get sick with a parasitic infection while still on the road or after you get home. It’s a miserable experience that’s best avoided if possible. Although this is easier said than done, as sometimes you can take all the necessary precautions and still end up with a nasty case of Montezuma’s Revenge. Still, following precautions like avoiding undercooked food and only drinking filtered water, definitely cut down on the risks. And even better there are even some dietary supplements, like ParaEnd, you can take while traveling to help you stay well.
Symptoms of a Parasitic Infection
Diarrhea, abdominal pain, gas, bloating and nausea or vomiting are all symptoms of parasitic infection. Additionally, you may also feel tired and have stomach pain or tenderness. These symptoms are similar to those of food poisoning but the difference is that food poisoning makes you sick within 24 hours of eating something, while parasites can fester for much longer before symptoms appear.
What to Avoid
When traveling in countries where you are not sure about the safety of the food there are some items you can specifically avoid to cut back your risk some. For instance, undercooked meats like pork and chicken are parasitic breeding grounds and snails freshwater fish and oysters can all cause problems if you don’t know the source. You can also get an infection if the food you are eating was cleaned with contaminated water or from the soil the produce is grown in. As such you’ll also want to be wary of fruits and vegetables that require washing.
Try a Supplement like ParaEnd
Beyond avoidance, however, there are also products that can help protect you while traveling. ParaEnd from NBPure is a natural product that protects against pathogens, restores balance, and helps absorb nutrients. What makes ParaEnd unique is that one of the main ingredients is Diatomaceous Earth. This ingredient looks similar to Chex cereal and has razor edges that help break up the parasite and larvae to help kill the parasite and future parasites. ParaEnd also has other botanical extracts that help kill off the parasite.
The nice thing about ParaEnd is that it doesn’t require any special diet restrictions when taking and anyone can use the product. It is important to know that some parasites stay dormant for many years. Even if you do feel fine from traveling or being outdoors it wouldn’t hurt to take a product like ParaEnd. Since it is all natural and doesn’t harm the body, only helps, this would be a great preventative measure to protect against parasites you may not even know you have.
Bring a Water Filtration System
Another thing to consider if you’re traveling to countries where the drinking water isn’t safe is to bring along your own water purification system. These are super lightweight and easy to use these days and will give you peace of mind and allow you to fill up right from a tap. Try the GRAYL water purifier bottle. With 300 single uses before the filter needs to be replaced, the purifier takes just 15 seconds to clean your water. The GRAYL purifiers protect against everything from protozoa, bacteria and even some viruses. It also protects against particulates, heavy metals, and chemical.
