Bimuno -Don't let travellers diarrhoea ruin your trip - It Really Works

I have just recently returned from a wonderful trip to Egypt and decided to try Bimuno, a product which we recommend and sell in clinic. I always seem to experience stomach problems when I go away and was very keen to give this product a try myself and discover what all the fuss is about. I have to say it is fantastic and for the first time ever I did not suffer from an upset tummy.
I was very worried about going to Egypt, especially after the recent troubles, shark attack and reading a recent report that Egypt in fact ranks higher than India for cases of travellers diarrhoea. Well I ate everything and experience only 1 day where I had slight cramps. For me this is a miracle as I am usually plagued all week, even in low risk destinations like Spain.
Having tried Bimuno now,  I am more than happy to continue recommending it to patients as a great product to reduce the risk of getting travellers diarrhoea.

What is Bimuno?

Bimuno is a unique second generation prebiotic Galacto-oligosaccharide formulation. It helps encourage and sustain a healthy level of your gut’s ‘good’ bacteria (Bifidobacteria) helping to prevent “bad bacteria” from becoming established. Unlike other prebiotics it also has unique anti-adhesive properties, which help the body to drive out “bad” bacteria .
It is very easy to take and comes in either a powder or pastille. I chose the Bimuno pastilles for my trip and found it very easy to take. You take 3 pastilles a day for 7 days before your trip and every day you are away. The pastilles have a pleasant taste and should be taken after breakfast every day to be most effective.

How effective is Bimuno?

In a scientific study 8 out of 10 travellers to high risk destination experienced a diarrhoea-free trip

Those travellers that did experience diarrhoea, experienced less cramps and found symptoms were reduced by half the time,  if they had taken Bimuno.

  1. Traveller's diarrhoea can really make your vacation or business trip one of your worst nightmares especially for someone who has a very weak stomach.
