Summer is here and you know what that means: adventure awaits! Whether you're taking a day trip to your favorite local spot, planning an out-of-the-country getaway, or heading a few states over for your bestie's wedding, travel plans can book up your summer calendar pretty quickly.
Getting ready for an upcoming trip is exciting, no doubt. But do you ever find that sense of excitement is followed by worry about potential digestive discomfort? If so, you're definitely not alone.
In this blog, we'll talk about some of the most common digestive challenges you may experience while traveling, why they happen, and some practical tools to ease your travel digestion so that you can spend your vacation enjoying scenery outside of the bathroom!
Travel Digestion Concern #1: Vacation Constipation
We've all been there, right? You're living your best life, relaxing into vacation mode, only to realize that you haven't made a #2 trip to the bathroom since you made it to your destination. As a result, you might be feeling some stomach cramping, bloating, or even a loss of appetite.

The good news is, these symptoms shouldn't last too long once you land and adjust to your new destination. Here are a few things to consider if you're hopping on a plane in the near future:

No matter the cause, here are some tips to help you keep travel nausea at bay:
