Natural health Products (NHP) include substances such as vitamins, minerals, herbal medicines, homeopathic treatments, energy drinks, probiotics, and other alternative and traditional medicines. These products are registered with Natural Product Numbers (NPN) through Health Canada and are subject to testing regulations.
Supra Research and Development offers various analyses related to chemical residues and contaminants. We also offer chemical fingerprinting which can be used for product authentication. This is becoming an increasing concern in the industry, as materials are typically sourced globally with non-standard or non-existent certificates of origin. Supra is engaged in a series of initiatives with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) related to product authentication.
Our scope of testing is expanding, and we could develop methodologies for custom requests. Please contact us for more information.
