Natural health products (NHPs) are naturally occurring substances that are used to restore or maintain good health.
NHPs, often called "complementary" or "alternative" medicines, include vitamins and minerals, herbal remedies, homeopathic medicines, traditional medicines like traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic (East Indian) medicines, probiotics, and other products like amino acids and essential fatty acids. They come in a wide variety of forms like tablets, capsules, tinctures, solutions, creams, ointments and drops.
To be legally sold in Canada, NHPs must have a product licence, an eight digit Natural Product Number (NPN). The safety and efficacy of NHPs and their health claims must be supported by proper evidence so that consumers and Health Canada know the products are indeed safe and effective. Atlantia can guide you in the requirements to obtain a NPN and support you in your product licence application.
