I'm going to be traveling to Canada in a couple weeks. Does anyone know of any supplements that I would not be allowed to bring into the country? I'm assuming protein powder would be ok though, at least I hope so.
Also, I'll be in a little town called Kanata which is outside of Ottawa. Does anyone know of any good places to workout in that area while I'm there that wouldn't be too expensive?
Yeah, that place definitely looks cool. But you're right, after reading about the place on the website I'm not sure they'd let me come to workout. Seems to cater just to pro/semi-pro athletes. I'll have to call and find out for sure.
Are you driving or flying? Which port of entry will you be using?
Driving is better, less likely to be stopped, especially if you are going through a busy port, ie, Windsor/Detroit. Flying could be trickier, but it is a crapshoot.
Remember to only answer the questions that they ask, don't OFFER anything that may cause them concern. Be honest and forthcoming and you shouldn't have a problem.
If all else fails, put the HOT-ROX in a Vitamin C bottle. Just kidding. I would, however, only bring the minimal amount of HOT-ROX that would be used for your own personal use, if you are really concerned, but bring it in the bottle, so anyone who is looking can check the ingredients.
I would be very careful what supplements you bring into Canada.
Any products that are not labled with English, and French are going to send up a 'red flag', and may be subjected to further inspection.
I Know many people that have had problems with natural herbs, like tribbulus that they bought in the US.
Don't even think about bringing in Andro, or any product that has Ephedra in it. It's illegal here within products, however.....it can be purchased on it's own in 8mg tabs. Anything higher is prohibited.
Any protein power should be just fine....unless they think you're smuggling something in there. Don't worry, prisons here are like summer camp anyway (I've heard!)
Good luck, and enjoy your stay. (In Kanata, I mean, not prison)
I'll be flying into Ottawa, driving isn't an option for me since I'm coming from Washington. I had only planned on bringing some protein powder and HOT-ROX. I can do without the HOT-ROX for a week though if it may cause any problems. Both I planned to keep in their original containers. Thanks for the advice!
