Every product sold by the Health Ranger Store has been extensively tested in the Consumer Wellness Center Labs using ICP-MS atomic spectrometry instrumentation, and is Verified Low Heavy Metals. The Lab developed a rating system that represents a new standard in consumer food safety, and the Health Ranger Store carries only those products rated “A” and above.
This is a crucial development because heavy metals are now being found in USDA certified organic foods, superfoods, vitamins, herbs and dietary supplements at alarming levels. Neither the USDA nor the FDA have set any limits on heavy metals in foods and organic foods, meaning that products can contain extremely toxic levels of mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic, copper and even tungsten while still being legally sold across the USA.
“This food science project is about providing transparency to consumers so they can make informed decisions about what foods they wish to consume or avoid,”
Adams explains. “Many people also have health conditions which are worsened by toxic heavy metals, and given that these elements can stay in the body for decades, consumers are empowered by knowing which foods are safer for them to consume.”
