Depending on where it is grown, sea moss could contain heavy metals, like mercury and lead, or other toxins. Our sea moss is sustainably sourced and wildcrafted from St. Lucia, where the water is known to be one of the cleanest and safest to drink in the world. Our supplier is FDA registered and submits a phytosanitary certificate for each shipment. The shipment is then tested by the US Department of Agriculture and FDA before entry into the US. We follow a detailed process to throughly clean our raw sea moss before manufacturing the product into gels.
With any health food supplement, there may be potential health risks depending on the individual. We would recommend consulting with your primary physician if you have any further questions or concerns.
