ESM Technologies, the leading supplier of innovative, commercialized eggshell and eggshell membrane wellness ingredients, announced a test evaluating heavy metal levels in its ESC® (Eggshell Calcium) material.
ESC 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. ”When you combine ESC’s enhanced bioavailability and clinical support with California Proposition 65 compliance, the result is the ideal natural calcium source,” explained Kevin Ruff, Ph.D., MBA, ESM Technologies’ Director of Scientific & Regulatory Affairs.
Eggshell calcium has been clinically proven to increase bone density. For more information on ESC, please visit ESM Technologies at the SupplySide East show in Secaucus, New Jersey exhibiting in booth 1321.
