WHAT IS PROP 65?
CAL PROP 65 WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
When you see this label do not be alarmed, be informed.
PROP
65
Prop 65 is a California law that requires companies that do business in California to put a warning label on products that contain an amount of a chemical known to cause reproductive harm or cancer.1
HERE'S A PROBLEM
Many of the chemicals that trigger Prop 65 exist in the soil. Yes, they may be dangerous in large amounts, but trace amounts are simply part of nature.2

LET'S COMPARE LEAD
We all know lead is dangerous in large amounts, but you can find small amounts of lead in many common, healthy foods. The chart below lets you compare the lead in some common foods with the lead in Seeking Health products, and how those relate to the Prop 65 and FDA limits for lead.3
AS YOU CAN SEE
The healthy foods have more lead in them than any Seeking Health product! The Seeking Health levels are way below the FDA limits for pregnant women, let alone for all adults.
NATURAL PRODUCTS
CONTAIN CHEMICALS
 
Natural products contain natural chemicals. Prop 65 requires a warning for a very long list of chemicals. This list is so long that many foods you normally eat would require a Prop 65 warning.3
COFFEE
Coffee contains a potentially harmful chemical, acrylamide.4
RICE
Rice has higher levels of inorganic arsenic than other foods.5
APPLE JUICE
The vast majority of apple juice contains low levels of arsenic.6
SUNFLOWER SEEDS
Sunflower seeds contain higher levels of cadmium than most foods.7
VITAMINS HAVE BENEFITS
For many products, the benefits vastly outweigh the risks associated with having naturally-occurring trace amounts of unavoidable chemicals that you come into contact with every day.

Why is CAL PROP 65 on my Seeking Health product?

Certain minerals, plant proteins, and other ingredients used in dietary supplements naturally contain lead or cadmium. These metals can be taken up from the soil or surrounding environment. Certain minerals can also contribute to lead or cadmium levels due to their mining proximity. Seeking Health does not add any lead or cadmium to any product.

The amount of a PROP 65 chemical used to determine whether a product is below California’s Prop 65 thresholds is the amount in a day’s suggested serving size. It is possible for some supplement companies to avoid having to display the warning by decreasing the suggested serving size and/or daily suggested use, however this may leave the formula lacking in nutrient content when used as directed.

The CAL PROP 65 warning label is required for any product that may be sold to the state of California. Like most ecommerce-based companies, Seeking Health distributes product all over the USA – and the world. To ensure that all customers are able to make an informed decision about their purchases, all bottles of Seeking Health product requiring the CAL PROP warning are labeled as though they may be sold in California. Even if you do not reside in the state of California, you may find the label on your product.
