Top tips for Frequent Flyers

How to stay healthy while travelling this summer

It’s no secret that we love to travel with Australians now taking 9 million short-term overseas trips each year.1 Travelling can be very taxing on the body with even the healthiest people prone to becoming ill on a long haul flight or lengthy bus or train journeys. No one wants to start their holiday with a cold or flu so it’s important to give the immune system a boost to help protect from potential germs being recirculated in dehydrating air conditioned environments. If you don’t prepare in advance for a long journey, it can be detrimental to your health.
Here are some helpful tips from FESS to help you stay healthy while travelling;

1)      Boost your health before you leave
To help ensure you are healthy before getting on the plane, start taking a multi-vitamin at least one week before you travel. Frequent Flyer Health Boost is a multivitamin supplement specifically formulated to help support the immune system. A lack of essential vitamins and minerals can have a negative effect on your immune system making you more prone to airborne germs. Each Health Boost orange flavoured tablet contains 1,000mg of Vitamin C plus Echinacea, herbs and essential vitamins and minerals.
2)      Keep nasal passage clear

FESS Frequent Flyer helps keep nasal passages moist and washes away bacterial pollutants. It will relieve nasal and sinus congestion due to low humidity, dry or air-conditioned environments to help your nose function effectively and support the body’s natural defences.
3)      Stay hydrated

Be sure to drink plenty of water in the days before your flight as well as during and after. Planes have very low humidity which can lead to dehydration and can cause you to become run down making it easier to pick up viruses.
4)      Wash hands regularly or use antibacterial gel

Limit exposure to germs by washing your hands regularly or keeping a small bottle of antibacterial gel close by. Use before and after meals, when using public toilets, phones, or keyboards to help prevent the spread of bacteria.

 5)      Get some sleep
Sleep is an essential part of maintaining a strong immune system. Sleeping while travelling isn’t easy so try to get plenty of sleep before you travel as people who don’t get enough sleep are more prone to infection.
