Olympian Labs, a global nutritional supplement and fortified foods company based in Scottsdale, Ariz., today announced the launch of Tranquil Tummy™ (http://www.tranquiltummy.com), a new treatment for morning sickness and nausea that combines the anti-nausea benefits of saltine crackers with those of ginger in a single convenient product.

Recommended by physicians, midwives and others since the 19th Century, saltine crackers are a time-tested remedy for the nausea experienced by pregnant women. Native to Asia, ginger has been used to treat stomach upset and nausea for thousands of years. Those suffering from nausea often have difficulty swallowing ginger in a pill form, and liquids such as ginger ale are often filled with artificial ingredients and sweeteners. Tranquil Tummy™ combines the needed dose of ginger in a simple, easy-to-take form that is gentle on the stomach.
This product is available in a box of 12 single serving pouches, each containing bite-sized crackers infused with 250mg of all natural ginger. It is free of sugar and artificial sweeteners.
Tranquil Tummy™ is just one of four new products being introduced this month by Olympian Labs in its NEW reproductive specialty line. It also includes:
- Aspiring Mother Premium Multivitamin, a pre-conception vitamin supplement containing Guaifenesin to reduce the thickness of cervical mucus, which has been recommended by physicians for years to prevent thick cervical mucus from interfering with the passage of sperm. It also contains 5 mg of folic acid, which is the highest dose of folic acid available in the United States without a prescription. According to WebMD (http://www.webmd.com/baby/guide/prenatal-vitamins), taking a larger dose of folic acid at least a month before becoming pregnant can significantly reduce the risk of brain or spinal cord birth defects.
- Expecting Mother Premium Multivitamin, a prenatal vitamin containing 5mg of folic acid - currently the highest folic acid dose available in a prenatal vitamin in the United States. In a recent clinical study(1), it was shown that 5 mg of folic acid reduced the risk of neural tube defects (NTD’s) by 85 percent, compared to only a 20 percent reduction in NTD’s achieved with the typical 400 microgram dose found in many prenatal vitamins.
- Brand New Mother Premium Multivitamin, a high quality multivitamin containing herbs traditionally used to promote lactation for breastfeeding mothers.
Tranquil Tummy™ will be launched on Friday, March 12, 2010 at the 2010 Natural Products Expo (http://www.expowest.com/ew10/public/enter.aspx) in Anaheim, Calif., currently ranked as one of the top 100 shows in the United States and one of the 50 fastest growing tradeshows. Product samples and show specials will be available at Booth #1114.
