What is Travelan®
Travelan® is a natural product, specifically designed to reduce the risk of infection by Enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC), as well as Shigella, Salmonella, Campylobacter and other bacteria that cause travellers' diarrhoea around the globe.
The active ingredient in Travelan® is hyperimmune bovine colostrum enriched with anti-ecoli antibodies. These antibodies bind to E.coli in the gastrointestinal tract preventing them from attaching to the intestinal wall and thereby neutralising their ability to cause diarrhoea and its associated symptoms.

What is Travellers’ Diarrhoea or Bali Belly?
Travellers' diarrhoea also known as Bali Belly, Delhi Belly, Montezuma’s Revenge, Tourist Trot, Rangoon Runs or just TD (travellers' diarrhoea), is a result of ingesting contaminated food and/or water.
Where should I take Travelan®?
Any country other than that where you normally live can be a potential infection threat. Some areas are a higher risk to travellers such as Asia, South and Central America, Africa, the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent. Areas with poor sanitation and water supply are especially high-risk.
Travelan® is designed to be taken before every meal.
How does Travelan® work?
The active ingredient in Travelan® is hyperimmune bovine colostrum powder, a rich source of antibodies that bind to Enterotoxigenic E. coli in the gastrointestinal tract, preventing them from attaching to the intestinal wall and thereby neutralising their ability to cause travellers’ diarrhoea and its associated symptoms. Hyperimmune colostrum is developed under Immuron's proprietary technology to create high titers of antibodies to a range of E- Coli bacteria that is present in normal colostrum in very small amounts.
When do I take Travelan®?
Take one Travelan® caplet before every meal. Additional caplets may be taken when increased protection is required, i.e. when snacking between meals or if circumstances suggest an increased risk of infection. Travela® should be used as an adjunct to normal travel hygiene practices such as “boil it, cook it, peel it.”
Has Travelan® been clinically tested?
Yes. Travelan® has undergone clinical testing in randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials. Clinical trials show Travelan® confers protection of up to 90% against infection with the major strain of E.coli that causes travellers' diarrhoea. In addition these trials showed a significant reduction in abdominal cramps and stomach pain compared to those who did not receive Travelan. There were no reported treatment-related side effects.
