Considering some trace levels of heavy metals occurring naturally in botanical/plants/food ingredients, many regulatory bodies have defined the permissible limits for heavy metal contaminants in herbal medicines after considering the geographical aspects of such contaminants. In this direction, both WHO and AYUSH have defined the limits of heavy metals (lead, cadmium, arsenic, and mercury) in herbal medicines. We, at Himalaya Wellness Company, follow these guidelines for all our medicinal products and ensure that our products comply with these regulations.
