Planning a Trip? Don't Leave THIS Behind

What does bacteria have to do with your upcoming travel plans to Florida, Costa Rica, camping or the cottage? Well, bacteria can mean the difference between spending time basking in the sun or coming down with the common cold or diarrhea (or both!).


Large crowds, confined spaces, recycled plane air and contaminated food are feeding grounds for disease-causing bugs like the Rhinovirus (the primary cause of the common cold) and E. coli (one of several bacteria responsible for food poisoning). 


Consumption of probiotics has been shown to help treat and prevent gastrointestinal issues, including persistent diarrhea and IBS, and may reduce the risk and severity of common ailments including the common cold and flu-like symptoms. It's a classic case of good bacteria vs. evil bacteria, and you want to make sure that the good bacteria win! 


Bacteria are our friends


Nutridophilus EssentialsThe average human body consists of about ten trillion cells but it has about ten times that number of microorganisms, including bacteria, living in the gut. (Think about that for a second: you have ten times ten trillion microorganisms living in your gut right now!) These bacteria perform so many necessary metabolic activities that their functions are about the equivalent of having an additional vital organ. Many people joke that the bacteria in our gut actually form a "forgotten" organ.
Our gut microbes exert an especially powerful effect on our immune system, keeping it armed and ready to respond to any invaders, including bugs that you contract while on vacation or during your regular day-to-day activities. NutriChem’s own probiotic, called Nutridophilus Essentials, is a combination of 4 beneficial strains of gluten-free and dairy-free bacteria, including:

  • Lactobacillus plantarum,
  • Lactobacillus casei,
  • Lactobacillus helveticus, and
  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus.


Together, these 10 billion "good" bacteria help neutralize harmful organisms before they become a larger health threat. It’s one of NutriChem’s top selling products and it’s one that our customers tell us they can’t live without!


One of the many benefits of Nutridophilus Essentials is that it’s room temperature stable: this means that you never have to worry about storing it in a refrigerator while you travel.



Nutridophilus Essentials is also now in a convenient travel pack!

A 43-year-old man, let's call him ‘John’,  came into my practice concerned that he was no longer feeling like himself.  He was experiencing deep fatigue that was not only impacting his work performance, but also his marriage and his confidence.  His weight had increased by 25 pounds, his body felt stiff, and his endurance had significantly decreased.  John was frustrated because nothing was helping.
