Yes, I am worried. I sent email to Swanson asking me to show CoA for their Bacopa. They didn't have it, but assured that they comply wth GMP. I didn't like it. I found on inet a forum where somebody posted heavy metal content in their Bacopa product. Heavy metals were roughly 10ppm, which is OK (supposed to be less than 10ppm for US, but California has a stricter standard, about 1ppm for a 500mg product). Then I asked myself a question: what has more mercury and lead, a salad or 1 capsule of Bacopa? I am still debating.
