CA Prop 65
In 1986, Californians voted in Proposition 65 which essentially required the state to annually publish a list of chemicals that could cause cancer, birth defects or other significant harm. Many dietary supplements contain ingredients that by their very nature contain elemental ingredients like Lead, Arsenic (Inorganic and Organic), Mercury and Cadmium. In small amounts these metals are absolutely harmless. When consumed in larger amounts, however, they can be problematic. Proposition 65 lists acceptable limits for the heavy metals listed above, and, companies that sell their products in California must state a warning if their products contain contaminants above acceptable limits. In addition, Proposition 65 recently added the chemical BPA to its list of ingredients. BPA is often found in plastic bottles and caps used throughout the food and cosmetic industry.
How does this affect Intensive Nutrition supplements?
Intensive Nutrition, as part of its GMP protocol, tests all of its raw material ingredients in addition to its finished products for heavy metal limits and microbial contaminants. At this time, all of Intensive Nutrition products heavy metal contaminant levels and microbial levels fall under Prop 65 acceptable limits.
What about BPA?
Prop 65 identifies BPA as potential contaminant. Intensive Nutrition only uses BPA-Free bottles and caps in its dietary supplement products. Its products are BPA-FREE.
