Deerland Enzymes Receives Natural Product Number for ProHydrolase® in Canada

Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes, a leading international enzyme-based dietary supplement formulator and contract manufacturer, has been granted a Natural Product Number (NPN) for ProHydrolase, a highly effective proprietary enzyme blend that maximizes protein digestion to aid in muscle recovery and muscle building. This new product license issuance by the Natural Health Products Directorate of Health Canada (NPN 80050629) allows ProHydrolase to be sold throughout Canada.

product-logoIdeal for use by fitness enthusiasts and body builders alike, ProHydrolase is supported by two human clinical trials that demonstrate the product’s ability to increase amino acid levels in the blood, supporting muscle recovery, as well as decrease C-reactive protein levels, which is an indicator of inflammation in the body.  In fact, amino acids in the blood are shown to increase by 20% with the consumption of a whey protein supplement accompanied by ProHydrolase, as compared to consumption of whey alone. ProHydrolase is also effective at digesting other proteins such as casein, soy, egg, pea and hemp.

All natural health products (NHPs) sold in Canada are subject to the Natural Health Products Regulations, which came into effect on January 1, 2004. These regulations state all NHPs must have a product license before they can be sold in Canada.

“We appreciate the rigor of the process for product approval in Canada, and we’re pleased that ProHydrolase has met the justifiably stringent standards that are in place for all natural health products,” said Scott Ravech, CEO of Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes.  He added, “Based on the success of ProHydrolase in the United States, we are excited to be able to offer this best-in-class protein hydrolysis product to Canadian consumers, and we expect to see a significant growth in demand.”

Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes has partnered with leading distributor Chemroy Canada to market ProHydrolase in Canada. “We are pleased to partner with a company like Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes that develops products which are backed by strong science that can stand up to the strict regulations of Health Canada,” says Jim Bornhold, director of nutraceutical sales at Chemroy.
