When you’re traveling to Las Vegas you’re exposed to a lot; the lights, the food, the guy in the Elvis costume on the street, the people trying to hand you coupons at every corner, and you’re exposed to germs. Sin city is all about the party which can wear you down and compromise your immune system. Being sick on vacation can ruin the whole stay and put a damper on the trip for you and your friends and family. Stay healthy on your Vegas vacation by bringing these five items with you.

Vitamin C

This is the ultimate vitamin for preventing sickness. Load up on Vitamin C to boost your immune system before leaving on your trip, but also bring some with you to keep your immunity up while you’re on vacation. It can be found in tablet form, a chewable, or powder to dissolve into your water.

Hand sanitizer

This one is pretty obvious. With all the people in Vegas, you might encounter someone who’s sick or touch a surface that might not be so clean. Make sure you’re not spreading the germs to yourself by frequently using hand sanitizer and killing any bacteria that might have been transmitted.


Staying hydrated is so important when you’re in Las Vegas. The food and drinks people tend to enjoy while on vacation can dehydrate you. If you’re walking around a lot or traveling in the hot Vegas summer, you’ll need to replenish your bodies supply of H20. Keep bottled water with you at all times and make sure you’re staying hydrated.

Digestion Tablets

One of the best things Vegas has to offer is the food, but trying unique cuisine doesn’t always agree with your stomach. Be prepared by bringing digestion tablets with you. When taken with a meal these will help you to digest your food and your body will process it better. So eat away and enjoy all the top quality restaurants that can be found in Las Vegas.

Peppermint Oil

Peppermint oil has many benefits such as reducing headaches and soothing sore muscles. If you’re traveling in the high heat of summer, applying peppermint oil to your temples and the back of the neck will help you to stay cool. It also helps with digestion and stomach aches for when you eat a little too much at that buffet.
