Any Canadians out there?
I want to go to the States to buy some supplements that I can’t find here but I am having a VERY difficult time finding out if I will be able to bring them across the border. I have phoned customs and Health Canada and searched through their websites and am just getting the run around.
So I guess my question is 2-fold. 1)which supplements are restricted in Canada 2)if a supplement is restricted in Canada does that also mean I cannot bring it across the border?
Also, there seems to be a difference between restricted and banned? For example, on Health Canada’s website I see Kava Kava is banned but that is about the only supplement that is specifically mentioned. I am interested in supplements such as Boron and Vitamin K2, which while available in Canada, seem to be only permitted in very low quantities.
I am also interested in combination products such as Jarrow Bone Up- again, not available in Canada, how can I find out if I can take it across the border?
I have searched for a list. I can’t find one. I don’t understand the importing rule. If you could shed some light on this I would really appreciate it.
