Parliamentary Secretary of Health Colin Carrie today announced changes to the classification of ten naturally sourced ingredients making them eligible for inclusion in natural health products.

The 10 ingredients include minerals, oils and salts which are used in traditional medicine and in Western natural health product formulations to maintain and improve health.  These ingredients had previously been restricted to products available by prescription.

Health Canada has reviewed evidence indicating that these medicinal ingredients are suitable for use without a prescription.
