It is our understanding that some or all of these are clay based products.

    Pay attention!!!

    The date on that Screenshot was Febuary 1987. Have the products been tested since 1987?

      That’s the date the relevant legislation was in effect, not the date of the lawsuit. The lawsuit is current. Lawsuits always refer to a violation of a law that was enacted sometime in the past. 🙂 The screenshot shows the date of the legislation that has been violated.

    Anything to discredit a company doing good things…amazing and fabricated.

      Not fabricated. It’s an active lawsuit.

    California’s laws are a bit strict and do not take into account the fact that lead does occur naturally.
    ComforTone contains bentonite clay. If you have ever used this amazing clay for anything, you know it is a health and wellness game changer. I have been using bentonite clay for years. It is in several of our products at home, both YL and other. For example, my daughter thinks the thieves and kidscents toothpastes are too spicy. She uses Earth Paste instead. Made with clay. See the thing about clay is lead is binding to clay and is not bioavailable to the body in any form. It just binds to the clay minerals and passes through the body. HERE’S HOW: “Bentonite clay has a negative electrical charge and is searching for things that have a positive charge… like lead. So even though it contains trace amounts of lead, it’s holding on tight to the lead, not letting it go in your or your child’s body.” (Cooper, 2009)
    In Juva Tone, Bee Propolis is one of the outstanding ingredients included in the supplement. Don’t know what that is? Known as “bee glue” it is the sticky substance bees collect from evergreen trees. With the collection of flower pollen and bee glue, they return to the hive and patch holes in the hive with the sticky glue, while using it to build their hive universe of honey. It is full of antioxidants, naturally antiseptic, and has too many health and wellness benefits to list! Propolis has also been shown to assist the body in toxic elimination of aluminum. With over 5,000 enzymes and coenzymes, this substance is a powerhouse! Think you have never had propolis? Think again! Traces of propolis are in ALL HONEY! Woohoo! Lucky for us!
    In JuvaPower, spinach in high quantities is one of the key ingredients that make this blend amazing. Did you know spinach contains a naturally occurring 15mg of lead per serving? Now imagine you have several servings of this nutritionally superior veggie in Juva Power. Once again, can we say how lucky we are?!
    In ICP, psyllium is one of the amazing ingredients. Known for its stellar properties in assisting the body’s natural elimination, it does contain naturally occurring lead. Once again…comes from the earth. Starting to see a trend here?
    In Femigen, we have several roots and leaf parts. Damiana Leaf,
    Epicedium, Wild Yam Root, Dong Quai, Muira Puama Root, Ginseng Root,
    Licorice Root, Black Cohosh Plant Root, Cramp Bark, and Squaw Vine Aerial Parts. Once again…comes from the earth. Definitely seeing a trend here.
    In both Power Meal and Balance complete, we have a “complete mineral supplement”. With barley grass in balance complete (grass is from the soil filled with minerals!) and a vitamin/mineral complex in a base of fiber (once again…from the earth!) we basically have a beautiful bucketful of earth here!
    In Multigreens, Pacific Kelp is a natural source of lead, but coincidentally, helps the body ELIMINATE lead from organs! As dark, leafy, earth-derived veggies contain lead (remember the earth contains minerals!) Alfalfa contains naturally occurring lead. Spirulina, an algae, also contains insignificant traces of lead. Bee Pollen is also a spectacular ingredient in this blend. Once again, remember propolis and honey contain lead… natural to assume bee pollen would also have trace amounts.
    Basically, what you have here is a bunch of supplements with earth-derived ingredients in tiny capsules. If we were an inferior company, like many others out there today, we would have a bunch of synthetic ingredients and would be able to avoid naturally occurring lead. Thankfully, for us, we are AMAZING. Not only do we leave synthetics out of the equation, we leave nature alone and try not to Frankenstein our products by genetically modifying their earth based ingredients.
    I applaud California for trying to be vigilant in their efforts to reduce lead consumption — which occurs chemically in many of our products and foods. Unfortunately, like many things which seem good on the surface, sometimes we make a mountain out of a mole hill, and check our common sense at the door.

      We have thoroughly researched and nowhere been able to find the original source for the alleged “Cooper 2009” quote. If you can find the source, please share it with me. Too many arguments are being built on a non-existent quote from what I can see.
