Health Canada | Proposed Changes To Regulate Natural Supplements In Canada #saveoursupplements



If you are a Canadian resident, please read this!

If you haven't heard, Health Canada is proposing changes to natural health products so that they would be regulated similarly to prescription drugs. This could cause many of the natural supplements we use to disappear, or become less accessible, it would increase their cost, and reduce the amount of information that is available about these products. This would affect supplements, homeopathics, vitamins, herbs, and more.

Canada is a global leader in the regulation of natural health products. All natural health products are reviewed and licensed by Health Canada before hitting the shelves here in Canada, this ensures that products are both safe and effective. This is demonstrated by a Natural Product Number (NPN) on the product.

Natural health care is a big part of my life, not only in the treatment of ailments but also in prevention, and general health care. Maybe it's also an important part of your life or someone you know, so I hope you'll join me by taking a minute of your time to click the link that I've shared below to send a standard letter to your MP in opposition of this proposal.

How can you help?

You can help save our supplements by taking one minute to send a pre-written letter by the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) to your Member of Parliament, letting them know that you do not agree with these changes,
