SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. & BOULDER, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Instead of just waiting for symptoms to go away, global travelers now have a new way to relieve diarrhea, thanks to a partnership announced today by Passport Health and PanTheryx, Inc.
Specifically formulated to meet the dietary needs of those with diarrhea, DiaResQ® is a must-have for international travel. The product works with a traveler’s natural defenses, providing nutrients and immune factors to support digestive health and rapidly restore intestinal function.
Traveler’s diarrhea is the most common illness affecting international travelers. The malady is so well known that it has earned many nicknames, including “Montezuma’s revenge,” “Pharaoh’s Revenge,” and “Delhi Belly,” giving an idea of which destinations result in the preponderance of travelers sickened with the disease. Every year, 20 to 50 percent of Americans who travel internationally, or about 10 million people, come down with a case of traveler’s diarrhea.
“This new and innovative product will greatly benefit business and leisure travelers,” said Carrie Falbe, director of product and service development for Passport Health. “We are very excited to make DiaResQ® the cornerstone of our traveler’s diarrhea standard of care.”
“We are very proud to be expanding our relationship with Passport Health. As the industry leader in travel health clinics, they are the ideal partners for us in the travel channel,” said Mark Braman, president and CEO of PanTheryx. “Passport Health provides an unparalleled opportunity to introduce travelers to DiaResQ® as a safe, fast way to address diarrhea.”
DiaResQ® was recently named in the Reimagining Global Health report as one of the 30 leading healthcare innovations with great promise to transform global health by 2030 and to help accelerate progress toward new health targets proposed in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
