I’m a Canadian who hates the cold. This is why I love summer more than anything. And nothing speaks summer in Canada than our precious long weekends. We work and wait all year for our 3-day extravaganzas. We adore them, we savour them, we covet them.
Canada Day long weekend is a personal favourite. To me, it’s the official start of summer! It’s become synonymous with family gatherings, fireworks, the kids leaving for camp, and cross-country road trips. And, while it’s a day of celebration, long car rides in traffic (cottages are SO worth it) and one too many Beaver Tails can leave many us feeling not-so-festive.
Nobody wants their long-weekend ruined. To help combat some of these ailments, Church & Dwight gave me a list of trusted, over-the-counter products for common weekend ruiners. I’ve used them all, and they really are all in my mama doctor’s kit.
The best part? These products are all made in Canada! Which makes them even more appropriate for rescuing our summertime fun.
If you have a family, you should be including Gravol™ as part of your medicine cabinet arsenal. For children who suffer from car sickness (or too many turns on the merry-go-round), try using GRAVOL™ Kids™ Quick Dissolve Chewables. These great tasting cherry-flavoured tablets offer the best in convenience and portability, eliminating the need to take with water and are great for the prevention and treatment of nausea, vomiting and dizziness due to motion sickness. For similar relief in adults, try using Gravol™ Quick Dissolve Chewables in great-tasting zesty orange-flavour.
For adults who prefer organic relief, GRAVOL™ Natural Source™ Ginger Liquid Gel Capsules are a Natural Health Product made with naturally sourced certified organic Ginger (the only medical ingredient) for the prevention and treatment of nausea and vomiting. GRAVOL™ Natural Source™ Ginger Liquid Gel capsules are taste free, easy to swallow, and non-drowsy.
Ovol™ helps to relieve one of the most embarrassing (and painful) stomach problems – gas! Ovol™ Ultra Strength Softgels work quickly to break down trapped gas in the stomach and intestines. It helps gas bubbles fuse together making them easier to get rid of through belching or flatulence.
To relieve a baby’s gassy tummy, Ovol™ Drops provide gentle and fast relief of colic, bloating and gas. The pleasant mint-flavoured drops make them easy for parents to administer.
Nothing ruins a great meal more than the discomfort of heartburn, acid indigestion and gas. Diovol™ Liquid Plus Mint and Diovol™ Tablets Plus Tropical Fruit doesn’t stop the body from its naturally producing acid – it reacts to neutralize or buffer existing excess stomach acid.
What are some other ‘Made in Canada’ products that could come in handy on Canada Day?
