Natural medicinal products contain naturally occurring substances in concentrations that are not substantially greater than those found in nature.
Natural medicinal products are typically manufactured from plant extracts or powdered plant parts. Natural medicinal products are only intended for oral consumption, for use on skin or for local use on mucous membranes.
All natural medicinal products are authorised by the Danish Health and Medicines Authority. As part of the authorisation process, each natural medicinal product receives a number (MT number), which must be visible on the label.
We state the requirements for the manufacture, quality, safety and efficacy of the product. Companies manufacturing natural medicinal products must hold a section 39 authorisation.
We continuously supervise and inspect the companies.
