I found this to b very interesting


Moderator note:

In 2006 Health Canada, the federal department of health, filed with the Provincial Court of Alberta to stop the sale of supplement products sold by Synergy Group and Truehope because the distributors (Synergy & Truehope) were making claims that their products were useful in the treatment of depression and bipolar. Because of these claims, Health Canada asserted that the supplements required approval by Health Canada and a Drug Information Number (DIN) for sale.


The link provided is on the website of one of the defendants and is predictably one-sided in its selections from the judgement.


This site specifically recommends that people protect their financial health by NOT purchasing products such as those at issue in in the court case. See Don't waste your money on these supplements
