I travel a lot these days. Over the course of the last 5 years I have taken numerous flights to places like California, Texas, New York, Ohio, Florida and more. Even though I am traveling a lot, that does not mean that I put my health on the back burner. Oh no! Even more so, I try to make sure that when I travel, I take along with me my normal arsenal of nutritional supplements and essential oils to get me through until I get home.
I've told you before about my love of essential oils. I pretty much never leave home without them. Peppermint is my saving grace when I get a bout of motion sickness. But, did you know I also travel with my favorite nutritional supplements? There are 5 that I recommend everyone use that will not only make your trip more enjoyable, but they will also keep you healthy and well while you are out and about adventuring.
5 Must Haves I Take With Me When I Travel
I do not go anywhere without my Melatonin. Being a blogger and a writer, my brain pretty much never shuts off. When I go to bed at night, there are always tons of thoughts running through my mind such as posts I can write, a book I want to read, a place I want to visit.
Melatonin helps my brain relax so that I can shut it off and really get a good night's sleep. I love this supplement because while it allows me to rest at night, I don't wake up groggy in the morning. I wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the day.
Our bodies naturally make melatonin so when it gets low, adding in a supplement can help support it and offer you a refreshing night of sleep.
I did not know how important taking a multivitamin was until I actually started taking one and noticed the difference in how I felt. It's simply one pill per day that contains all the vitamins I need.
Taking this every day allows my energy levels to soar — and because I don't always eat the best when I travel, I know I am getting the correct number of vitamins my body needs.
#3 Vitamin C
Y'all know how I am about sick people on planes right? I refuse to get sick. Before I board the plane, I am all about boosting my immune system so I take a daily Vitamin C pill on top of my multi vitamin. Vitamin C is great for giving your immune system that extra boost it needs to stay well.
#4 Progesterone Cream
I know this sounds weird right? I am in full premenopause right now and those hot flashes and night sweats are NO JOKE! Have you ever been on a plane and have a serious hot flash hit? You cannot get up and move around fast enough.
Carrying a Pregesterone Cream with me helps me keep those symptoms at bay making my flight and my travel adventures a little more enjoyable.
#5 Vitamin B12
And of course I never leave home without my Vitamin B12. I am always needing that extra boost of energy especially if I have a jam packed travel itinerary. B 12 is that vitamin that when you feel sluggish gives you the perfect get up and go attitude.
