Ground-breaking Study Finds Jamieson's Probiotic Sticks Ease Stress-Related Stomach Ailments

    TORONTO, June 17 /CNW/ - More than 60 million North Americans suffer from
gastrointestinal disorders each year.(*) Yet few people recognize the direct
link between stress and their stomach complaints - abdominal pain, gas,
bloating, nausea and vomiting. Clinical research(xx) demonstrates that
Jamieson Laboratories' Probiotic Sticks provide a significant reduction in
stomach ailments related to stress.
    In a study published in Nutrition Research, researchers tested the
effects of Jamieson Probiotic Sticks on 64 stress-induced volunteers. Over a
three-week period, half of the subjects received a Probiotic Stick once daily,
while the rest received a placebo. Probiotic Sticks provided a 49 percent
reduction in two stress-related gastrointestinal symptoms - nausea and
abdominal pain.
    "The results indicate that Jamieson Probiotic Sticks can reduce
gastrointestinal symptoms in individuals with chronic stress," says study
advisor Henri Durand. "The patented Probiotic Sticks formula is unique. The
active bacteria are microencapsulated, which protects them from gastric acid
and ensures they reach the intestinal tract."
    Stress and other factors, such as antibiotics, caffeine and alcohol or an
unbalanced diet, can deplete normal levels of good intestinal bacteria,
causing a variety of problems from an upset stomach and food cravings to
disturbances in brain chemistry that disrupt sleep.
    Jamieson Probiotic Sticks are made from two clinically tested patented
bacteria that support the stomach's microflora and stimulate the body's
natural defences. Each single-serving sachet contains one billion cells, the
highest active potency on the market. Produced in naturally flavoured red-plum
crystals, Jamieson's Probiotic Sticks don't need refrigeration, so you can
take them wherever you go.
    Jamieson Probiotic Sticks are available in the pharmacy section where you
shop. Suggested retail price $19.99.
