SinoVeda Canada Inc. is a privately held Edmonton-based health science company that uses botanical sources to develop and commercialize nutritional food ingredients, pharmaceutical-grade natural health products and prescription medicines. SinoVeda was co-founded in 2006 by Dr. Yun Tam and Dr. Nuzhat Tam-Zaman.
SinoVeda’s patented Pharmaceutical Platform Technology (PPT®) allows the company to isolate, quantify and standardize the active, absorbable ingredients from botanical sources, enabling the production of unique multi-active, multi-target products. In many cultures around the world, herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years to treat patients holistically.
In May 2014, SinoVeda announced positive clinical results for EffectiCal® from its 24-week double-blind, randomized comparative clinical trial in post-menopausal women. The results showed that EffectiCal®, a supplement containing 300mg of calcium, was equally as effective as Caltrate® (600mg calcium) and vitamin D3 in measurements of bone formation and bone resorption.

- ProFlexaTM, a botanically based topical cream to relieve muscle and joint aches and pain
- LorechoTM, an all-natural product to support cardiovascular health and LDL cholesterol balance.
