Travelan available for traveler's diarrheaAlaven Consumer Healthcare has launched Travelan (bovine colostrum [anti-enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli antibodies]) caplets to reduce the risk of traveler's diarrhea (often referred to as “Montezuma's Revenge,” “Delhi Belly," "Bali Belly" or "Traveler's Trots") caused by E. coli bacteria frequently found in destinations such as Mexico, Latin America, South America, India, Asia, and the Middle East. Travelan is taken before each meal prior to and during travel to neutralize E. coli bacteria, thus inhibiting attachment to the intestinal wall.
Travelan is available over-the-counter in a 200mg dosage strength.
