There is an ultra-pure source of calcium that IS Prop-65 compliant… AND it’s from a whole-food source. It is ESC®.

Steer clear of harmful calcium in your quality supplements – choose ESC®.  

A Natural Products Insider article published August 2012 discusses the importance of the Prop 65 issue.  The article states, “In 2011, 108 Prop 65 notices on lead were filed, and 172 were submitted during 2010, more than were submitted for dietary supplement products from 1996 to May 2010 combined.”  Notices of Violation are continuing to be issued in 2012 with 47 so far through mid-July.

ESC®, an ultra pure calcium from eggshells, was tested down to parts per billion levels for lead, mercury, arsenic and cadmium. Findings concluded that ESC is California Prop 65 compliant in all four heavy metals tested at the full daily value for calcium of 1,000 mg per day.  Lead levels in ESC were more than 50 times lower than the California Prop 65 standard and more than 1,000 times lower than USP (United States Pharmacopeia) limit for Nutritional Supplements.  The remaining metals of mercury, arsenic and cadmium were 50 to 450 times lower than the California Prop 65 standard levels.  Given ESC’s enhanced bioavailability and clinical support with California Proposition 65 compliance, the result is the ideal natural calcium source.
