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.
