Phytonutrient Canada (PC) develops, manufactures and markets health products approved by Health Canada. Innovation, creativity and efficiency are the main drivers of the development of our products.
Since the medicinal field is vast and our knowledge and resources do not allow us to produce enough creative, innovative and effective natural health products to cover every possible disease, we focus our efforts on very specific health issues. such as :
– Prostate diseases
– Urinary tract infections
– Brain functions
The head office of Phytonutrient Canada (PC) and its sister company Boréal Medicinal Canada (BMC) is located in Saguenay while its production laboratory is located in the Normandin polyvalente in Lac-St-Jean, province of Quebec, Canada.
The Saguenay River has its source in Lac-Saint-Jean and is known as one of the most beautiful fjords in the world. It flows into the St. Lawrence River about 160 kilometers further east.
Natural and scientific resources
This region of the north-east and that of central Quebec produces a significant portion of wild blueberries and cranberries that are consumed in the world. The massive presence of these natural resources has led Canadian universities and public and private research centers to undertake in-depth scientific studies of the medicinal potential of small northern berries, particularly wild blueberries and cranberries.
In order to develop the most effective products, we use medicinal ingredients of the highest quality nutraceutical quality.
For its R & D programs, PC works with world-renowned organizations for their scientific knowledge of medicinal plants in northern Quebec and Canada. The University of Quebec at Chicoutimi (Lasève Laboratory), the University of Montreal, Trans Biotech, Entreprises Michel Sasseville, Nutra Canada and MNK Recherches are examples of current and / or past collaborators.
Health Canada and its regulation on natural health products
Health Canada’s Natural Health Products Regulations are at the heart of Phytonutriment Canada’s operations. Health Canada’s primary goal is the safety of Canadians and those who consume the natural health products we make. Fully implemented in 2014, this new Canadian natural health product regulation is now one of the most rigorous and rigid in the world. The way a natural health product is now developed and manufactured in Canada is increasingly similar to that used by the pharmaceutical industry.
Each product must be licensed by Health Canada for sale in Canada. PC holds such licenses for each of its medicinal formulations and an establishment license for its manufacturing facility which also complies with Health Canada’s much stricter requirements.
