    I was told that there are very high levels for arsenic in this product. Canadian food agency said that there was more than 40 times the acceptance level of arsenic. Please clarify. Thank you very much.

    1. Dr. Jagdev Singh says

      However, the ingredients listed on the label don’t include arsenic in any form. Processed Arsenic is used in a very few of Ayurvedic and Unani medicines. There might be two possibilities:

      1. The manufacturer might have included Arsenic in Safi before reporting and issuing a warning by Canadian Government. Now, they might have changed their formulation.

      2. There might be arsenic contamination in Safi.

      Ayush Department of Indian Government has also disallowed to export any product outside India that contains heavy metals including arsenic, mercury, and lead, but they have not banned this in India.
