As part of its website migration to Canada.ca, Health Canada has updated the Licensed Natural Health Products Database (LNHPD). Under Canada’s Natural Health Products Regulations, natural health products (NHPs) are required to be safe for use without a prescription.
The LNHPD contains searchable information on licensed NHPs. Products include homeopathic medicines, vitamin and mineral supplements, traditional medicines, herb and plant-based remedies, probiotics, omega-3 and essential fatty acids, and some consumer products (certain toothpastes, deodorants, shampoos, face products and more). The database includes information pertaining to the product’s name, license holder, identification numbers, ingredients, dosage, recommendations for use or purpose, and risk information.
