Made in Canada Must-Haves for This Canada Day

canada Church & Dwight

Canada Day is around the corner and it is without a doubt the beginning of our official Summer vacation. Throwing caution to the wind we start scouring local events for activities that will keep our whole family occupied. This past weekend we took the kids to an urban farm which they can’t stop talking about.

From previous years I can let you know that although we have the best intentions some of our trips produce some unexpected and unpleasant tummy issues. As a family of six, we can’t afford to get stuck in a car with anybody feeling or getting sick. It has a domino effect and its like as gross as it sounds.

Made in Canada Must-Haves for This Canada Day

Canada Day has become synonymous with family gatherings, fireworks and cross-country road trips. And, while it’s a day of celebration, long car rides and 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? 


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 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?

    Gravol would have come in handy yesterday after a brush with bad food. Best to have some on hand BEFORE you need it.

    Besos Sarah.

    I am always blown away at how beautiful all these animals are. It’s one thing to see it on TV but in real life leaves me awestruck.

    Aw shucks about the bad food. I wish I had some Ovol on hand yesterday as we ate way too many beans a couple of days ago and almost killed the kids with gas :/

    Canada Day is always fun for us because we have a BBQ for all of our friends and family. Sometimes we have someone that will feel ill so having things ready like you’ve listed here are always welcome.

    I didn’t know Gravol was made in Canada. There are so many great products that I am unaware are Canadian.
