    I see that the warning on the side of the Maca Magic Root Powder container has a warning about naturally occurring lead. If a person is already experiencing autoimmune issues would there be a problem using this powder? Also how much Naturally occurring lead is in this product? We are hesitant about using it at all. Please advise.
    Thank you,
    Cynthia

      Cynthia, Thank you for reaching out to us. The Maca powder falls under specification limits for lead. So using the powder would be a decision that you would have to make as we are just following state and federal regulations.
