I didn't know this existed! Good to know...

Licensed Natural Health Products Database (LNHPD)
Quote:
The Licensed Natural Health Products Database (LNHPD) contains product specific information on those natural health products that have been issued a product licence by Health Canada.

The issuance of a product licence means that the product has been assessed by Health Canada and has been found to be safe, effective and of high quality under its recommended conditions of use. Stakeholders can identify licensed natural health products by looking for the eight-digit Natural Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM) designation on the label.

The LNHPD is managed by Health Canada and includes information on licensed natural health products, such as vitamin and mineral supplements, herb and plant-based remedies, traditional medicines (such as Traditional Chinese Medicines or Ayurvedic [Indian] Medicines), omega 3 and essential fatty acids, probiotics and homeopathic medicines as well as many everyday consumer products, such as certain toothpastes, antiperspirants, shampoos, facial products and mouthwashes.

Note - The product information found within the LNHPD originates from organizations not subject to the Official Languages Act and is available in the language in which it was written and submitted to Health Canada.

For every licensed product listed in the LNHPD, the following details are provided:

1.Product Name
2.Product Licence Holder
3.Natural Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM)
4.Product's Medicinal Ingredients
5.Product's Non-Medicinal Ingredients
6.Product's Dosage Form
7.Product's Recommended Use or Purpose (i.e. its health claim or indication)
8.Risk Information Associated with the Product's Use (i.e. cautions, warnings, contra-indications and known adverse reactions)
