Canada Day in Ottawa ~ WW


Canada Day has become synonymous with family gatherings, fireworks and cross-country road trips. If you live in Ottawa, it can mean a trip downtown to join in on the fun and the festivities on Parliament Hill! And, while it’s a day of celebration, long car rides or one too many Beaver Tails can leave many Canadians feeling not-so-festive. 

To help combat some of these ailments, below is a list of trusted, over-the-counter products. The best part? These products are all made in Canada! Cool, eh? 

  Made in Canada Must-Haves for This Canada Day

If you have a family, you should be including Gravolas 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 Fruitdoesn’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?

    I’m lucky that I seldom have an upset stomach, in fact I can’t remember the last time I had one. In fact I don’t suffer from any of the problems mentioned above, for which I am extremely thankful 🙂

    Gravol is definitely a must have in my house.
