Traveling can be exhausting. We all know what long flights, irregular eating and lack of exercise can do to you. That’s why it’s important to get all the help from superfoods we can get. Here's what my travel kit contains!

 Supplements for traveling

TURMERIC CAPSULES 

Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory superfood that is perfect for treating any inflammation in your body. Sunburns and upset belly, for example!

ASHWAGHANDHA

Ashwagandha has numerous health benefits and is known for helping with balance and reducing stress when the external conditions change. It also strenghtens your immune system after illness, and as a nice plus it also increases your sex drive.

VALERIAN ROOT

Valerian root is a herb used to help with calming down and sleeping better. If you’re suffering from jet lag, valerian root is a safe and holistic alternative to sleeping pills. + a little tip for all my ladies out there, valerian can also help with period cramps with it’s soothing and relaxing properties.

GREEN POWER

To support your immune system, nutrients are crucial when traveling. I always have green superfood capsules with me so I can rely on them if i feel like i haven’t got gotten enough nutrients from my food. 

B12

is crucial for anyone with a vegan or vegetarian diet, and it shouldn’t be neglected while traveling.

Probiotics

Protect your gut flora by popping probiotics before and during your journey. Depending on where you’re going, the local bacteria can either seriously upset your stomach or not have any effect at all, but it’s safer not to risk it so you can enjoy your holiday with a peaceful mind.
