1. WHAT IS PROP 65?
Only applying to California, Proposition 65 requires the State to publish and maintain a list of chemicals known to the state of California to cause: birth defects, reproductive harm and cancer.
The list of chemicals has continually grown and contains 900+ chemicals, including naturally-occurring substances. Prop 65 also expanded to cover water to supplements, play-place equipment, hardware +++
You will see Prop 65 warnings at coffee shops, majority of food products, amusement parks, restaurants, pretty much everywhere in the state of California.
2. WHAT KINDS OF FOOD ARE AFFECTED AND IS MY FOOD SAFE?
Having a Prop 65 warning does NOT automatically mean that a product is not safe, it is a "right to know" law based on the notion that the public has the right to know if they are being exposed to carcinogens or reproductive toxins. Some of the chemicals listed in Prop 65 are naturally occurring and not even Mother Nature can pass the guidelines. If tomatoes, apples, carts or lettuce were sold as a supplement they would also all have this label.
3. WHY ARE HEAVY METAL MINERALS IN MY FOODS?
4. WHY DOES Wuji USE WARNINGS LABELS?
Here at Wuji, we have added the Prop 65 warning on all our products that are ordered and shipped to California. This is to avoid costly litigation over Prop 65 compliance.
Wuji tests each harvest throughout the growing stages as well as once our Chlorella and Spirulina are packaged to ensure quality, purity and toxicity.
Wuji's Chlorella's cell wall encourages the elimination of toxicity in our bodies and works hard to eliminate heavy metals and chemicals through our gut and digestion. Chlorella is considered to be nature's most potent purifier!
At Wuji, we prioritize the purity and quality of our products above all else. We understand that in today's market, consumers seek transparency and assurance when it comes to the products they consume. That is why we place great importance on rigorous testing throughout the entire process of growing and harvesting our algae. By conducting thorough internal testing and partnering with trusted third-party laboratories, we ensure that our product is pure and of the highest quality.
Our algae undergoes meticulous testing at an FDA-approved third-party laboratory in the United States. This comprehensive testing process validates not only the nutrient density but also the purity and safety of our product. We believe that you deserve nothing but the best, which is why we go the extra mile to provide you with a premium product.
Experience the epitome of clean nutrition, exactly as nature intended it to be. With our commitment to rigorous testing and quality assurance, you can nourish your body with complete confidence and peace of mind. Rest assured that each batch of our product has been thoroughly examined and meets the highest standards of quality and purity.
When it comes to testing heavy metal levels in products, it is important to note that trace amounts of these elements can be found in various substances on our planet. Heavy metals like lead and arsenic occur naturally in the environment and can be found in soil, water, and even in the food we consume. Therefore, it is not uncommon to detect small quantities of heavy metals in different products. However, regulatory bodies like the FDA have established specific limits to ensure consumer safety.
For instance, the FDA's maximum allowable limits for lead in bottled water is 5 parts per million (ppm), while for arsenic, it is 10 ppm. In comparison, our product, chlorella, demonstrates significantly lower levels of heavy metals, with just 0.16 ppm of lead and 0.05 ppm of arsenic.
Clear Toxins From Your Body
Chlorella is recognized for its potent detoxification properties that can effectively eliminate various toxins, ranging from heavy metals to environmental pollutants. According to a research paper published in Chemosphere in 2005, Chlorella was found to boost the excretion of dioxins in stool by 9x.
Additionally, studies have demonstrated that Chlorella can remove between 40 to 90 percent of Bisphenol A (BPA) and reduce its hormone-disrupting effects, as published in Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry in 2005.
Clear Skin, Free From Breakouts, Rashes & Redness
Toxins present in our food, cosmetics, and toiletries can overburden our detoxification organs, leading to the expulsion of toxins through the skin. This process can cause various skin problems, including rashes, breakouts, rosacea, and eczema.
Chlorella is a helpful natural remedy that can support the liver and other detox organs, promoting the elimination of toxins through the bowel, resulting in clearer skin. By incorporating Chlorella into our diets, we can alleviate the toxic load on our body, and thus, minimize the risk of developing skin issues.
Chlorella can aid in combating cellulite in three ways. Firstly, research published in the Medicine and Biology Journal in 2013 has shown that Chlorella can enhance skin elasticity, which is crucial in preventing fat cells from protruding through the upper skin layers. Secondly, it can improve the balance of gut bacteria, reducing fluid retention caused by food intolerances. Finally, Chlorella can eliminate toxins that are stored in fat cells, leading to cell enlargement and inflammation, both of which exacerbate cellulite.
A deficiency in B12 can lead to a range of symptoms, including fatigue, weakness, depression, memory problems, and nerve damage. According to a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food in 2009, individuals with B12 deficiency who consumed Chlorella experienced an increase in serum levels of B12. The study concluded that the B12 found in Chlorella was in its authentic bioavailable form. B12 is essential to our bodies for: Red blood cell formation, carrying oxygen throughout our body, it's important for the maintenance of the nervous system, helping to protect nerve cells and promote the transmission of nerve impulses. B12 is required for the synthesis of DNA, the genetic material that contains the instructions for cell growth and division. B12 also plays a role in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, helping to release energy that the body can use.
Reduce Fibromyalgia Discomfort
Chlorella is a rich source of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, which may contribute to reducing inflammation and improving immune function. These benefits can be particularly helpful in managing fibromyalgia symptoms, which are often linked to inflammation and immune dysfunction. One study published in the Nutrition Journal in 2012 found that Chlorella supplementation significantly reduced fibromyalgia symptoms, including pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbances, in fibromyalgia patients. Another study published in the Clinical Rheumatology in 2018 suggested that Chlorella may improve the quality of life in patients with fibromyalgia by reducing symptoms and increasing antioxidant capacity.
Leaky Gut Syndrome
Chlorella is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce inflammation in the gut and promote healing of the intestinal lining. It also contains pre/probiotics that can help balance the gut microbiome, promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and reducing the growth of harmful bacteria. Through Wuji's pattened process of breaking down the cell wall, Chlorella's diverse nutrient lineup is 2x more digestible and available for absorption - helping nourish and heal the intestinal lining.
