Health Canada Approves Lakota for Arthritis Pain

June 6, 2007

Lakota Canada today announced that Health Canada has approved Lakota for arthritis, joint, muscle and back pain relief.

Lakota Canada today announced that Health Canada has approved Lakota® for arthritis, joint, muscle and back pain relief. After extensive review, the Natural Health Products Directorate (NHPD) - Health Canada's division responsible for evaluating the safety, efficacy and quality of natural health products (NHPs) - has issued a product license and natural product number (NPN) for Lakota® Joint Care Roll-On.

Health Canada issues natural product numbers only to products that are safe, effective, and of high quality. Natural product numbers are issued only after an extensive review. These numbers assure consumers that what is on the label is what is in the bottle and that the health claims stated are supported by appropriate levels of evidence. Natural health products require the same degree of scientific evidence as drugs to support their claims. Their regulations are very similar to drug regulations with requirements for standardized labeling, and specification requirements for finished products.

The treatment claim that Health Canada has approved for Lakota® Joint Care states that the product provides relief of "Joint and muscle pain (arthritis, sprained muscles, sports injury, low back pain, nerve pain)." These claims are supported by the highest level of scientific evidence and should give consumers great confidence. This is strong medical recognition for the Canadian based natural health product company.

"This is an important step for Lakota. We know how effective our products are, our consumers know how effective they are, and finally Health Canada has given us recognition," said Kent Pedersen, CEO of Lakota® Canada. "Our goal has always been to provide arthritis sufferers with the most effective natural source pain relief; we are proud to be one of the few approved natural arthritis pain relief products available," said Pedersen, pointing out that very few of the arthritis products on the market have been issued natural product numbers to support their claims.
