Jamieson Laboratories' Travel Vita-Vim(TM) helps to prevent world's most common travel illness

TORONTO, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - In time for March break, Jamieson Laboratories
has released Travel Vita-Vim(TM), a new vitamin supplement that also prevents
traveller's illness.

Traveller's illness - diarrhea, indigestion, upset stomach, gas and
bloating - is the most common illness experienced by international travelers,
affecting approximately 10 million people each year.(*) But the right
combination of vitamins, minerals and probiotics in Travel Vita-Vim(TM) can
keep vacationers on an even keel especially during a change in routine.

Travel Vita-Vim(TM) contains probiotics, the so-called "good" bacteria in
the stomach's ecosystem, to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and yeasts.
First taken at least two days before leaving for vacation, Travel Vita-Vim(TM)
contains a proprietary blend of probiotics that have been shown to prevent
travellers' illness before it starts. "It is possible to stay healthy and
avoid travel-related illnesses during your beach holiday by following a few
simple steps," says Penny Kendall-Reed, Naturopathic Doctor and Clinic
Director, Urban Wellness Clinic. "Travel Vita-Vim(TM) helps ensure you spend
your vacation out on the beach and not in your hotel room when you can't
always watch everything you eat and drink."

Probiotics are found naturally in yogurt, miso, kefir, sauerkraut and
other foods. But Jamieson's high-quality clinically tested probiotic formula
is available in a convenient capsule form that requires no refrigeration - so
it's with you when you need it, anywhere you travel. Jamieson's Travel
Vita-Vim(TM) is also Canada's only probiotic product that contains 20
essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients to support optimal wellness and a
healthy immune system for people on the go.

Packaged in a convenient 10-day supply for $9.99 (MSRP), Jamieson's
Travel Vita-Vim(TM) will be available across Canada in March, just in time for
spring break. For more information about this product and to learn about other
