    I always boost up on probiotics just before and during travel. I want to help keep the bacterial balance in my digestive system in favor of the “good guys,” and probiotics seem to help do the trick! Traveler’s diarrhea ranks up there above lost luggage and missed flights for really ruining travel plans, but probiotics can really help.
