I have noticed that I cannot find anywhere that sells DMAE in Canada, and found out it's banned in Canada. I checked on Wikipedia to see the effects of DMAE on the skin, and it says according to a study, DMAE damages cells when applied topically. Could this be why it's banned in Canada? Does anybody know whether it's really that safe to use or not?

I think we've discussed this earlier. See smartskincare.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2820&highlight=dmae

DMAE was restricted in Canada well before that study came out, so I don't think it is related.

There are a number of other supplements that are also so restricted (Carnitine, Acetyl -L-), is one of them.

It is actually not easy finding a complete list of restricted items, but LEF has the following: lef.org/newshop/shippingtips.html

Apparently similar restrictions may affect the USA as well, if the "Trilateral Cooperation Charter" is implemented:

Although, I hope it only will restrict the, often misleading, claims about supplements, not the actual sale of these products.

I have a korma recipe that calls for rose water. I live in Argentina and cannot find it anywhere. Can anyone suggest an alternative flavouring?

Cheers
