FAQs

Does your calcium contain any lead?

The lead limit for all of our calcium products is well below federally adopted USP (United States Pharmacopeia) and California Proposition 65 regulations. The current California lead limit, effective April 1, 1999, allows for a maximum of 1.5 ppm of lead per 1,000 mg of calcium (which is even lower than federal guidelines that allow for a maximum of 3 ppm of lead calculated on calcium carbonate).

Please note, because of the chemical similarity between calcium and lead, all calcium supplements have trace amounts of lead in them. Even supplements that report non-detectable amounts may have some lead in them depending on the equipment used. Our equipment for detecting lead is very sophisticated and accurate. It is essential that our equipment be very precise since we have to be able to detect even trace amounts of lead in our products.

What is your calcium derived from? Is it from oyster shell?

Our calcium is derived from limestone, not oyster shell.

Why do I need to take a calcium supplement?

National nutrient intake data shows 49% of American adults fail to meet the recommended calcium intake through dietary sources.1 Calcium is an important nutrient, particularly for teens as well as post-menopausal women and older men. There are increased daily intake recommendations for individuals at these specific life stages, including 1300 mg for teens and 1200 mg for post-menopausal women (51 - 70y) and older men (>70y), compared to 1000 mg for adults (19 -50y).2 In general, you need to consume three or more servings of calcium per day to meet the daily requirement. One serving would be approximately one 8 ounce cup of milk, 6 ounces of yogurt, or 1 ounce of cheese.
