TORONTO, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - Jamieson Laboratories, Canada's leading
manufacturer of natural health products, today announced it has made
www.jamiesonvitamins.com a trilingual site with the addition of traditional
Chinese to the formerly English- and French-only site.
Current and former residents of Taiwan and Hong Kong will now have access
to what Jamieson believes is the most comprehensive web site in Canada's
natural supplements industry for news and information. The Company is giving
consideration to further expanding the number of available languages on the
site in 2008.
Besides featuring the most complete product, promotion and corporate
information about Jamieson available anywhere, the web site affords visitors
authoritative commentary about natural health products and everyday health
issues from six leading health experts - Dr. Joel Gagnier, Naturopathic
Doctor; Michelle Ginsler, Nutritionist; Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed, Naturopathic
Doctor; Dr. Jose Lanca, Professor, Department of Pharmacology, University of
Toronto; Genevieve Primard, Naturopath; and Sherry Torkos, Pharmacist.
The site also includes a health news section featuring the latest natural
supplements industry headlines from around the world as well as an FAQ section
that provides visitors with important background and context about the day's
natural health news headlines.
Also of interest are a natural supplements industry timeline dating from
3,500 B.C. to the present and a monthly poll asking consumers their opinions
about the natural health issues of the day.

health-conscious consumers in the world - and www.jamiesonvitamins.com is that
