Natural Health Products

Natural Health Products are defined (in Canada) as:

  • Vitamins and minerals
  • Herbal remedies
  • Homeopathic medicines
  • Traditional medicines such as traditional Chinese medicines
  • Probiotics, and
  • Other products like amino acids and essential fatty acids.

Similar definitions exist worldwide which may or may not be legally enforceable, depending on local regulations.

Natural Health Products are closely related to drugs, and have begun to be regulated in order to control health claims being made by products not classified as drugs, but are taken for reasons above and beyond simple caloric intake.
