4. What does CanTravel contain?

CanTravel contains the following ingredients in our unique natural formula:

  • Zingiber (3X) has a long history of traditional use. Modern research confirms its effectiveness in supporting digestive comfort and soothed stomachs. (Grontved, A., Brask, T., Kambskard, J., and Hentzer, E. "Ginger root against seasickness. A controlled trial on the open sea." Acta Otolaryngol. 1988;105(1-2):45-49.) (Schmid R, Schick T, Steffen R, and et al. "Comparison of seven commonly used agents for prophylaxis of seasickness." J Travel Med 1994;1:102-106.)(Mowrey, D. B. and Clayson, D. E. "Motion sickness, ginger, and psychophysics." Lancet 3-20-1982;1(8273):655-657).
  • Mentha pip (3X) is one of the most effective of the mint herbs and has been used for centuries as a digestive tonic. Modern research has demonstrated its effectiveness in supporting healthy digestion and calming the stomach. (Tate S. "Peppermint oil: a treatment for postoperative nausea." J Adv.Nurs. 1997;26(3):543-549).
  • Kali phos (6C) is a biochemic tissue salt which is very effective as a restorative and nerve tonic. It has many benefits, among them the support of digestive balance.
  • Cocculus (6C) is well known for its ability to promote digestive comfort while traveling.
  • Wind flower (6C) is a homeopathic ingredient used in modern times to support the natural balance mechanisms of the ear (Friese, K. H., Kruse, S., and Moeller, H. "Acute otitis media in children. Comparison between conventional and homeopathic therapy". HNO 1996;44(8):462-466. ) and can be very useful in maintaining traveling comfort, particularly when there is an aversion to the enclosed space and a need for fresh air.
  • Lactose (inactive ingredient)
