While traveling's exciting, a vacation can also be (ironically) tiring, especially if you're in a different time zone and away from your regular routine. If you want to avoid becoming a traveling zombie, the best vitamins for traveling can help you stay healthy and relaxed while you're out of the office. What's more, in some cases it's even beneficial to switch up your supplement routine while you're traveling.
"Depending on the type of vacation and location, you may consider adding supplements to achieve certain goals, Dr. Jeffrey Gladd, a member of the scientific advisory board for Care/of, which builds personalized vitamin packs, tells Bustle.
"If you are going on a relaxing, rejuvenating trip, it may actually be worth cutting down on some of your supplementation to give yourself a break. This would also help you gauge whether supplements or a focus on relaxation is what you really need." On the other hand, if you current vitamin and supplement is working for you like a boss, it's best to stick with it, though you might want to consider adding supplements depending on your destination. "If you are going to an area where unfamiliar foods may be introduced into your diet, adding a probiotic to your regimen before heading out and continuing for a few weeks upon your return can help support your digestion," Dr. Gladd advises. If you're planning a late-spring getaway, these are the best vitamins and supplements to take while you're traveling based on your vacation goals.
