TORONTO, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - For many, September signals the return of a
pedal-to-the metal lifestyle that can undo any gains made by the lazy days of
summer. Good nutrition is emerging as a key strategy for lifestyle stress and
retailers visiting Expo East 2008, September 11-14, 2008, will be sourcing the
newest natural and organic products that may help in building people's
immunity to this stress.
Produced by the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA), Expo East 2008
offers the best one-stop experience for the latest developments in the natural
and organic products industry. To be held in the North Building of the Metro
Toronto Convention Centre, the conference (September 11-12) and trade show
(September 13-14) is the largest of its kind in Canada.
"The fall is a hectic time for everyone," says Penelope Marrett,
President & CEO of the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA), "and we need
to remember that lifestyle stress is a risk factor to health."
Retailers know that today's consumers are looking for products that boost
energy, counteract stress, help to relax and aid in sleep. The aisles of Expo
East 2008 will be filled with 550 exhibitors displaying everything from
supplements such as magnesium known for its anti-stress properties; energy
bars chocked full with healthy ingredients such as sprouted buckwheat and hemp
seed; candy bars that are organic, vegan, and gluten free; and beverages that
lower anxiety as they deliver a food source of tryptophan efficiently to the
"The list of natural and organic products at Expo East 2008 that improve
mood, stress levels, brain function, and energy levels is very long indeed,"
says Marrett, "it really does take two days to walk the show!"
