HEALTH CANADA always bans any and herbal products from India because they are creating an environment to cheat India out of legacy but if those very banned products are grown in Canada or USA it is okay for consumption. Has HC even conducted any tests to prove that the herbs are harmful. All they do is ban them without any explaination – why HC would you please respond
Its not that the herbs are harmful, despite what Health Canada, FDA or USDA says, it is the fact that these natural foods are treating and even curing disease of every kind. This cuts into Pharmaceutical profit and they do NOT want any competition. Ban The Good Foods and Subsidize The Bad. Making GMO foods cheaper and raising the cost of quality foods is making people more and more sick. Just because it tastes good and you can buy three fast food meals for the price of an organic salad DOESN”T mean you should buy it. We need to get it together and think about what is being done to us as human beings.
I am just putting forward an educated guess but from my searches of Health Canada removing products from health food stores that contained L-dopa such as Mucuna, I noticed that some of the particular products they removed were standardised extracts claiming to be as much as 50% L-dopa. Some of the other products were stacks that contained Ephedrine, bioperine, tongat and L-dopa among other things….perhaps a combo like that might be potentially more hazardous….maybe not for a healthy person but someone with high blood pressure may have some complications with such a stack.
Having said that, I am certainly not in favor of the sweeping bans Health Canada implements. Lithium Orotate for example in small doses is not toxic yet they put it in the same category as lithium the drug.
so to double check, it can not be sold in Canada but i can purchase and import it for personal use?
