Lead in Supplements?

Hello, I’ve been taking Nature’s Way Maca Root capsules for about 2 months and have noticed a very positive effect. Most of the positive effects described, I can say that experienced for sure.

That said, I have a question about contamination. I’ve read articles about herbal lead contamination, especially for those harvested across seas. Does anyone know anything about dangerous amounts of lead in Maca root? The only reliable resources I could find was a report on Consumerlabs but the website is hidden behind a paywall.
Thanks for your time!
