Due to litigation from Proposition 65, California residents will see these warnings nearly everywhere: gas stations, parking garages, hotel lobbies, coffee houses, and on various consumer products.
In the state of California, a manufactured product requires a Prop 65 warning if the amount of lead present exceeds 0.5 micrograms — 1,000 times more strict than the levels deemed as dangerous by the FDA.
Lead is naturally occurring in herbs, vitamins, and minerals from the soil in which they grew. Some may be present in ingredients from human activity unrelated to product manufacturing.
It should be noted that the human body can excrete lead almost as quickly as it comes in; an adaptation developed over millions of years in response to leads natural presence in environment.
Rest assured, our products are safe for use as directed. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult with their physician prior to taking any dietary supplements.
