Health Canada’s Natural Health Products Directorate has finalized the new monograph for conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is intended to serve as a guide to the Canadian industry for the preparation of product license applications for natural health product market authorization.
With this new monograph, companies will be able to communicate more effectively about the health benefits of CLA to Canadian consumers, healthcare practitioners and others interested in CLA for weight management benefits.
Shan Chaudhuri, Director RA & IP at Healthy Body Services said, “The finalized monograph for CLA by Health Canada helps Canadian companies now prepare their PLA’s (Product License Applications) for natural health product market authorization of CLA. Lipid Nutrition was instrumental in orchestrating and submitting the additional evidence which Health Canada utilized in coming up with the new monograph.”
Jaap Kluifhooft, Director Regulatory Affairs at Lipid Nutrition, pointed out that Health Canada reviewed all of the Company's published data as well as additional published scientific data in finalizing the new monograph for CLA. "This is an important milestone with regards to CLA and as a company we are happy that we could be of assistance."
