My Weekly magazine, issue no. 5231 this past week has featured a section on Summer health advice, packed with tips for stomach upsets, avoiding sunburn, looking after your eyes with sunglasses (even if you're in the UK!), and more. In the section, 'What Will Stop Traveller's Diarrhoea?', a reader asks, 'I dread going abroad as I always seem to get an upset tummy, no matter how careful I am about hygiene.' My Weekly's health editor, Karen Byrom quotes gut health expert Dr Georges Mouton suggests...

'Wash hands regularly, avoid tap water and raw foods, and take a probiotic like OptiBac Probiotics For travelling abroad (£10.20). The multiprobiotic helps to significantly reduce the risk of traveller's diarrhoea by coating the lining of the intestines, helping to suport the immune system and to flush out pathogenic bacteria before it can cause an upset tummy.'

'For travelling abroad' has also featured in Bella magazine this Summer, as well as the Telegraph's Stella magazine last year. It's a favourite of many nutritional therapists, including Melanie Brown who recently wrote about it in her 'What to pack for a stress-free holiday' . (for more of her tips, you can follow @NutritionalMel on Twitter.)

Family pack now available

What's more, this Summer we have launched a family pack of the 'For travelling abroad' - 60 capsules in one pack for those of you going abroad with family or friends, or anyone going on prolonged travels (you lucky thing!). For backpackers dont forget you can take the blister packs out of the carton and pack them separately to save on space! The 60 capsules pack size retails at £24.99, so you save over £5 as opposed to buying three of the smaller packs. This is available now in independent health food shops and pharmacies (find your nearest stockist). You can find out more about 'For travelling abroad' here.

My Weekly has included a number of useful tips, such as looking out for our friends at Incognito for those concerned about insect bites, 'Research suggests it is stronger and safer than DEET' - and a natural option! So be sure to look that up if you're off somewhere nice where mosquitoes are out and about too.

Thanks to My Weekly for including us, we're thrilled to be in the magazine, and look forward to more tips next week!
