LOS ANGELES, March 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nutrition and health have been hot topics of late. First Lady Michelle Obama has been promoting the importance of healthy eating, and so has the U.S. Army through its new mess hall labeling system. With obesity rates on the rise, there has never been a more important time to be health and diet conscious.

This weekend, Natural Products Expo West, the largest natural products trade show of the year takes over the Anaheim Convention Center. On display are a variety of foods, drinks, dietary supplements and a whole variety of industry support businesses all focused on the promotion of healthy living.

This increased awareness on health has helped propel the dietary supplement industry to new heights. Fish oil, Vitamin D, Calcium and probiotics have become big business. One Los Angeles dietary supplement manufacturer and marketer has capitalized on this demand and has continued to grow in spite of a challenging macro economic climate and potentially new and restrictive regulatory guidelines.

"Jarrow Formulas, Inc. is an example of the prowess of American Business," said founder and President Jarrow Rogovin. "Through innovation and good old fashioned hard-work, Jarrow Formulas continues to endeavor to help our consumers to live healthier lives."

Among the company's new products are PhosphOmega®, a phospholipid bound omega-3 that has higher bioavailability than typical fish oils, Jarro-Dophilus Oral Probiotics + Vitamin C (Gum and Lozenge) and Skin L &P, a unique skin health dietary supplement.

"We have grown through a continuous pipeline of effective high quality products, gaining shelf space and offering unique dietary supplements," said Ben Khowong, CEO of Jarrow Formulas, Inc. "It is a testament to what a committed group of people can do, especially considering the recent economic headwinds."
