I am going on a trip. On Tuesday. To a different country!
As I’m making lists of items not to be forgotten, I got a little stuck when it came to supplements and vitamins. I don’t take any prescription medications for my asthma or PCOS anymore, but I rely on supplements and vitamins (and of course a healthy diet) to keep me healthy and strong. And I take more than most.
Here is my bare essential list so far:
I am also bringing some supplements for blood sugar as my PCOS is usually under control at home, but I have less control over my diet when I travel, so better safe than sorry!
These are the ones I take everyday, without exception. (Except the oregano…those are on an as-needed basis.) I feel GOOD on this particular regimen. Along with my diet, these are keeping me healthy as most people in my neck of the woods are starting to gets sniffles and coughs.
So here are some questions for YOU: For those who travel (solely with carry-on baggage) with supplements/vitamins (not RXs), do you leave the pills in the bottles, or do you stick them in a ziplock bag? And what about the gelcaps? They’re technically liquid, so do you put them in your 1 qt liquid bag? What vitamins and supplements are you sure to have in YOUR suitcase?
Strangely, on airline websites, travel blogs, and other areas for information, this particular topic has varied answers, which surprises me since rules for travel these days are pretty strict.
Hopefully I can figure this out in the next 36 hours
