Regarding the issue of arsenic in foods and supplements, I can advise you at the outset that arsenic in food and supplements truly is not as dangerous as ConsumerLab would like many potential subscribers to believe. I do wish ConsumerLab had been more thorough in their discussion of arsenic in their report.

ConsumerLab allegedly found 5. How dangerous is 5.

Henry A. Schroeder, M. Schroeder writes:. In seawater, there are 2 to 5 ppb, which s for the fact that many seafoods have more arsenic than the FDA limits 2. This arsenic is not toxic. Arsenic toxicity? This short paragraph from Dr.

It also tells us how potentially dangerous organic arsenic from those sea plants or any land plant in Green Vibrance might be. If only 5. Literature accumulating since the turn of the 21st century indicates that feces, perspiration, and the sloughing of skin cells also serve as avenues of exit for arsenic. Hair and nails additionally serve as sequester points for the metal. Most tissues rapidly clear arsenic, except for skin, hair, and nails. Arsenic from fish and seafood does not even appear to be metabolized or biotransformed, but instead is rapidly excreted unchanged in the urine within 48 hours of ingestion.

Even in the case of the most dangerous, inorganic, trivalent arsenic, most is cleared from the body within two days, with final trace amounts finally exiting the body two weeks or more afterwards. Inorganic compounds of arsenic do carry a cancer potential, but the amount required is ificantly larger than what is contained in Green Vibrance, and even those much larger amounts must be consumed over a very long period of time — meaning years — before there is any danger.

In Dr. In my opinion, ConsumerLab did a disservice to the public by presenting incomplete information to their readers about the true nature of arsenic. They failed, purposely, I p, to acknowledge that organic arsenic is non-toxic.

Inorganic arsenic does carry the potential for harm, but you must take ificant amounts over a long period of time for the risk of cancer to arise. The small, 5. In water, arsenic is also far more bioavailable, meaning that inorganic arsenic in food is far less dangerous. Additionally, within 48 hours of ingestion, nearly all inorganic arsenic is excreted.

Human biochemistry is quite efficient at removing both organic and inorganic arsenic. This ability developed over millions of years of adaptation to our food supply. Speaking from a biochemical point of view, it is possible to say everything you eat is contaminated with a host of substances, including arsenic, that your body does not need, does not want, and that may be poisonous.

There is no single food on the planet that is only nutritious.

Every plant contains natural substances, compounds, alkaloids, heavy metals, that are all naturally present, and that must be denatured and excreted from the body because they are unwanted, unnecessary or dangerous. Arsenic in its various forms is one of those elements, and over the millennia, we have developed efficient means to rid it form our bodies. On the contrary, our discussions within the halls of Vibrant Health have resulted in an entirely new procedure that goes beyond Good Manufacturing Practices GMP standards for the tracking and recording of heavy metals in all raw materials and finished products.

A person within our production team has now been ased the specific role to closely monitor all heavy metal and microbiological data associated with each ingredient, AND to identify fluctuations in those values with the goal toward further reducing the content of all heavy metals in both ingredients and finished products. Green Vibrance contains 73 ingredients selected with care to be of the highest quality. If the accumulated, naturally occurring trace amounts of arsenic in these plants should deliver 5.

Selenium also provides essential antioxidant protection at the cellular level to further protect against the oxidative action of heavy metals. Other antioxidants such as vitamin C and the rich complement of polyphenols supplied by botanical extracts in Green Vibrance are additionally known to protect against and detoxify arsenic. These facts demonstrate that Green Vibrance is balanced, healthful and coordinated in its formulation.

Every raw material purchased by Vibrant Health is accompanied by a heavy metal analysis and a microbiological analysis. Furthermore, we only purchase from reputable raw material suppliers with international and industry wide reputations for quality. We ourselves use Covance laboratories, Silliker labs, Eurofins, Chemical Solutions and, occasionally, Advanced Laboratories as our own, impartial outside testing labs.

Furthermore, we use only GMP certified contract manufacturers to assemble our materials into finished products. EACH of these manufacturers has their own in-house laboratory that retests and corroborates each material in accordance with GMP regulations. If they should find a discrepancy between their analytical and that stated on the certificates of assay that accompany the materials, we are alerted.

Our response is to have the material retested by an outside lab one of those listed aboveand then examine the. From time to time, but not too often, we find it necessary to reject a raw material. We have in the past rejected materials because of either microbiological contamination or lead levels that were too high. Nothing has yet failed due to elevated arsenic levels.

As a side note, we all hear from time to time about the unregulated nature of the dietary supplement industry. We hear from Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, from news pundits, from authorities under the influence of the pharmaceutical industry, and from physicians who are ignorant about alternative methods of healing, that the supplement industry is unregulated.

Nothing could be farther from the truth. One of the primary reasons why dietary supplements have become more expensive over recent years is because of the layers of regulation that sit upon the industry. Raw materials must be analyzed by the raw material manufacturer, by the company that manufactures the product and by the company that markets the product. There is triple redundancy built into the process to check identity, microbiological integrity and heavy metal levels.

But how can you know that? And so the media has an opportunity to turn your attitude against dietary supplements or specific members of that community. We who do work within the industry are well aware of our current and effective level of regulation. Over my 42 years in dietary supplements, I have seen supplement manufacturing migrate from what truly was an unregulated industry to one that is highly regulated.

The use of such an unfounded, hyperbolic comment can only be meant to incite a negative public reaction. Inciting fear is even more egregious in light of the facts that human exposure to inorganic arsenic has been dropping for decades and that the amount in Green Vibrance is so small. Arsenic in plants will be organic, unless the crops have been sprayed with inorganic arsenic containing herbicides or insecticides. However, the use of such agricultural chemicals has been dropping steadily since the mids when they were abandoned in favor of newer, arsenic-free herbicides and pesticides.

These drops are in line with reductions of other metals in our environment, lead foremost among them. Lead levels in foods have declined over time in many developed countries. Elimination of lead additives from most gasoline in the s and from paints is credited with much of the reduction in exposure. The cutback in industrial use has dramatically benefitted the food supply.

In the U. Due to the replacement of arsenical insecticides and herbicides by organic forms, the presence of inorganic compounds in and on foods continues to decline. We will now, and into the future, no longer conduct the standard arsenic analysis, which shows the combined arsenic content of both organic and inorganic forms, but will instead invest in the more expensive analysis that separately identifies both organic and inorganic arsenic. Given that we use as many certified organic plant materials in Green Vibrance as possible, the presence of trace amounts of inorganic arsenic in each serving of Green Vibrance provides evidence of the inescapable worldwide presence of the metal in our environment.

I would urge ConsumerLab to be honest and thorough in their approach to their analyses and thereby expand their reach to include every super green food in the marketplace. A true analysis will show that a dietary supplement cannot be manufactured from plant-based ingredients and NOT contain some level of heavy metals.

At the same time, I suggest analyzing some fresh whole foods for comparison. The ultimate problem, if there is one of course, is that natural foods anywhere on the planet contain some level of heavy metals. At Vibrant Health, we do indeed buy our raw materials based not only on their high nutritional density but also their low heavy metal content. I was surprised to see that our attorney who specializes in FDA matters, Marc Ullman, is quoted in the first article.
