A study of 523 travellers to countries with an intermediate to high risk of diarrhoea found that taking the prebiotic Bimuno® (a galactooligosaccharide mixture also known as B-GOS®) resulted in an overall reduction of 33% (P=0.03) in the incidence of diarrhoea in the 334 individuals who adhered strictly to the protocol.1 Furthermore, travellers in this group who had been taking the product for more than 7 days, experienced an even higher reduction in the incidence of diarrhoea of 45% (P=0.02). For optimal protective effect, Bimuno® should be started 7 days before travel and travellers encouraged to stick to the protocol to get the full benefits. The exact mechanism of protection is not yet clear, but Bimuno® has been shown in other research to increase the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut, especially an important species called Bifidobacterium, known to be linked to human health.
