Reed’s, Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of top-selling sodas in more than 10,500 natural food markets and supermarkets nationwide, recently announced that the company has begun production and shipment of its new ginger-based remedy for nausea and motion sickness. The company’s new “Reed’s Rx” Natural Ginger Nausea Relief has been shipped to drugstores nationwide in convenient four-packs of 5.5-ounce cans containing a brew of fresh ginger, honey, pineapple juice, and lemon and lime juices.

In addition to beginning distribution, Reed’s Inc. has placed its first advertisements for the “Reed’s Rx” product in drugstore trade publications. The company’s products are sold through specialty gourmet and natural food stores, mainstream supermarket chains, retail stores and restaurants nationwide, and in Canada. In addition to the new remedy, the company owns the top-selling root beer line in natural foods, the highly popular China Cola product line, and an array of various drinks, candies and ice creams that incorporate the use of fresh ginger.

Chris Reed, founder, chairman and chief executive officer of Reed’s, Inc., stated, “We have received many testimonials over the years from people who have used our products for motion sickness, morning sickness and nausea. In addition, ginger has a very long history of use as a remedy for nausea. It was documented to be used by the early Roman Empire in 1000 B.C. and shows up in early medical texts dating from 1600 B.C.” Mr. Reed continued, “As a result, we decided to create a new line of products based on the Reed’s Ginger Brew brand and geared for the drug store trade under the ‘Reed’s Rx’ brand.”
