    Algae oil, like all foods and supplements, has the potential to contain heavy metals, although the levels can vary depending on the source and production methods. Heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic are naturally occurring elements that can be found in the environment, including in bodies of water where algae grow. Algae oil is made from various strains of algae that are grown in different locations, so the levels of heavy metals can vary depending on the specific strain and location.
