    TORONTO, April 3 /PRNewswire/ - A new natural weight loss supplement is
 causing quite a stir north of the border. In Canada, sales of Jamieson
 Laboratories Ultra Slim Down(TM) rocketed overnight following media reports
 about the product's remarkable effectiveness. The supplement sold out across
 Canada in less than 24 hours.
     Now Jamieson, the leader in natural health products in Canada, is making
 Ultra Slim Down(TM) available to people in the United States seeking a safe
 and effective solution to taking off those unwanted pounds. Ultra Slim
 Down(TM) is available from Jamieson's web site at www.jamiesonvitamins.com
     Ultra Slim Down(TM) contains a new combination of herbal ingredients that
 was shown to help eliminate diet "plateaus" and assist in weight loss - even
 without diet restrictions and increases in exercise.
     "Canadians recognize that Ultra Slim Down(TM) is a safe, effective
 solution for healthy weight loss," said Kevin Edwards, Jamieson Laboratories.
 "We have increased production to offer this product to Americans seeking an
 all-natural, ephedra-free diet aid that works."
     Toronto-based naturopath, Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed conducted a marketing
 study from September-November 2000 on the effectiveness of Ultra Slim
 Down(TM). The results showed an average weight loss of 10.2 pounds for those
 who took Ultra Slim Down(TM) without following any diet or exercise program.
 Individuals who took the product but were also required to do moderate
 exercise and follow good eating habits lost an average of 14.5 pounds.
     "I would highly recommend Ultra Slim Down(TM) to anyone who is struggling
 to take off a few pounds," says Dr. Penny Kendall-Reed. "I was extremely
 impressed with its safety profile and effectiveness -- participants were
 losing weight quickly, safely and were able to break the dreaded "plateau"
 that accompanies most standard diets."
     Jamieson's Ultra Slim Down(TM) package contains two products: an Herbal
 Carbohydrate Burner and a Fat Absorber. The ingredients in both the
 Carbohydrate Burner and the Fat Absorber have been clinically proven in
 numerous studies to reduce body weight by burning fat more effectively and
 helping eliminate carbohydrates efficiently. However, it is the combination of
 ingredients, and the way in which they are taken, that provides an effective
 means for weight loss.
     The Herbal Carbohydrate Burner was taken by the study participants three
 times daily, 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner. It contains
 Citrimax(TM), derived from the Garcinia Cambogia tree, which helps the body
 convert dietary carbohydrates into energy; Advantra-Z(TM), a thermogenic herb
 that increases metabolism and Kola Nut to increase energy levels.
     The Fat Absorber was taken immediately following breakfast, lunch and
 dinner, and contains: Chitosan, a natural fibre extract from North Atlantic
 shellfish which binds up to 12 times its weight in fat; and Nopal Cactus
 another natural fibre, which binds 10 to 20 times its weight in fat allowing
 it to pass naturally through the body, unabsorbed.
     Study participants noted that the product had helped curb their appetite
 and increased their motivation because they were able to eat foods that they
 normally restricted from their diets due to higher fat and/or carbohydrate
 content. Additionally, none of the participants reported any side effects from
 using the product. Kendall-Reed was pleased with the results of the product
 only group but noted that a sound weight loss program should also include the
 elements of a proper diet and regular exercise. The product "should not be
 used as a license to eat," says Kendall-Reed.
     Jamieson's Ultra Slim Down(TM) kit contains a 30-day supply and is
 available from www.jamiesonvitamins.com
     Established in 1922, Jamieson Laboratories is Canada's largest
 manufacturer and distributor of advanced natural health-care products. With
 300 employees, Jamieson's state-of-the-art pharmaceutical manufacturing
 laboratories are located in Windsor, Ontario. The company is a world leader in
