WHAT IS LAB TESTING?
If you’ve been shopping for Kratom online, you’ve probably seen some sites that mention lab-testing. This isn’t just marketing jargon– whether or not Kratom has been carefully tested in a lab is extremely important. Some vendors sell Kratom that hasn’t gone through any testing, which means it could include some unwanted contaminants. Before you decide to buy Kratom online, it’s important to know that it’s passed rigorous testing.
Here at Gold Leaf Botanicals, our kratom lab-tested for heavy metals, yeast, mold, e. coli, staph, salmonella, and more. Our testing is performed by an independent third party company, ensuring consistency and credibility. Our customers can shop with confidence knowing that they're receiving a clean product.
Lab testing can tell us a lot about a batch of Kratom. Because of the risks of foreign contaminants being introduced into Herbal powders, we only source our Kratom from Organic* farmers. We work directly with our producers to ensure that you're receiving an unadulterated product.
Heavy Metals Test for Kratom
Heavy metals can find their way into herbal powders during various farming and processing methods.
It surprises some people that heavy metals can exist in natural Kratom. However, some Kratom has been grown using dangerous chemicals or may have even become contaminated during processing. It's important to know that your Kratom isn't contaminated with heavy metals.
Pathogen Test for Kratom
In addition to heavy metals, it’s important to test kratom for pathogens and other contaminants.
Pathogens wouldn’t necessarily be introduced to the process intentionally as some heavy metals would, but they can still occur when the Kratom is not harvested, processed, stored, and shipped carefully. These pathogens can include things like salmonella, coliforms, mold, yeast, and even e. coli.
WHY IS LAB TESTING IMPORTANT FOR KRATOM?
Because of the fact that contamination in powdered herbal products is common, the only way to know for sure if a product is clean is with lab-testing. Unfortunately, contaminants such as those described above can be harmful. Do yourself a favor, and only purchase thoroughly tested extracts. You deserve it!
