Humic and Fulvic Acids transport essential nutrients into tissues which help overcome low energy and chronic fatigue. It can also improve blood circulation and oxygenation at the cellular level so you feel better, more alert and experience an increase in your level of energy and stamina. Additionally, it removes harmful toxins from your body that can contribute to body fatigue.



Humic and Fulvic Acids will bind to both positive and negatively charged ions, making it the most powerful natural antioxidant and free radical scavenger known.

One of the many unique properties of Humic and Fulvic Acids is that they have the ability to accept an electron or donate an electron to free radicals. What is a free radical and why are electrons important? A free radical is an unstable molecule with an unpaired electron that travels through the body, scavenging our cells, looking to steal another electron in an effort to achieve stability. This creates even more unstable molecules that then steal more electrons in a domino-like chain reaction. By the time the chain ends, it may have caused extensive tissue damage and irreversible deterioration of our cells, leaving them susceptible to disease and infection or cause them to mutate and become cancerous. 

When free radicals are in constant production and go beyond the protective defenses in the body, the damage gets to be too much and oxidative stress occurs. Cigarette smoke, alcohol, stress, radiation, toxins in our food, water and air can all accelerate this process.  

Free radical damage and oxidative stress are implicated in a number of diseases and conditions that become more common as we age, ranging from wrinkles and creaking joints, to the more serious ailments such as cancer, heart disease, dementia, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, diabetes, kidney disease, cataracts and age-related blindness. 

Humic and Fulvic Acids are some of the planet’s highest sources of antioxidants. Working as a functionally bio-adaptive antioxidant, it can safely interact with free radicals, protect against unnatural oxidation, and stop the chain reaction before damage is done to the cells. How? By reacting with both negatively and positively unpaired electrons, rendering the free radicals harmless by changing them into new, useable compounds or eliminating them as waste. 

When Humic and Fulvic Acids encounter a free radical with an unpaired positive electron, it supplies the free radical with an equal negative charge to neutralize the harmful effects of the free radical. If the free radical carries a negative charge, the Humic and Fulvic Acids can supply a positive unpaired electron to block the charge.

It then analyzes the chemical makeup of the free radical to determine if it has any benefits for the body. If it is chemically able to become an asset rather than a liability, the Humic and Fulvic Acids will turn the bad guy into a good guy by transforming the molecule into a bioavailable nutrient that can be absorbed by the body. If the makeup of the free radical is of no particular benefit, it is chelated, mobilized, and carried out of the body as a waste product.

Humic and Fulvic Acids have many molecular donor and receptor sites along their molecular chain which allow them to react with more compounds than any other antioxidant in nature, including Vitamins E and C and CoQ-10.

Because Humic and Fulvic Acids can behave as both a donor or an acceptor of electrons and can bind to both positive and negatively charged ions, it is considered by many to be the most powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger known.



Humic and Fulvic Acids are considered one of the best organic chelator. Heavy metals, synthetic drugs, environmental chemicals, radiation, preservatives and other toxic pollutants are chelated (transformed) into readily absorbable forms that can be used by the body, or the Humic and Fulvic Acids bind with positively charged ions -  the toxins that burden your body - and escort them out as a waste product.

A healing crisis, also known as the Herxheimer Reaction, occurs when users have an excessive amount of toxic build up and the toxins are released faster than the body can eliminate them.

Humic and Fulvic Acids will react differently with everyone. They naturally prioritize the sequences in which it addresses the body’s health challenges - You may not feel more energized if it is addressing your detox needs.

Most bodies will experience the order of detoxifying, repairing, and then regulating itself.



Humic and Fulvic Acids can help reduce your inflammation by balancing your body’s pH from an acid state to a more alkaline state, improving your blood circulation and oxygenation at the cellular level. It works to properly structure your blood plasma so your blood can carry more oxygen, thus allowing your red blood cells to help your injury repair itself faster.

The anti-viral properties of Humic and Fulvic Acids decrease inflammation by lowering and or eliminating the viruses that cause certain inflammatory responses. In clinical tests, Humic Acid has shown to lessen cervical inflammation in women with cervicitis. The immune-modulating properties of Humic and Fulvic Acids also contribute to the anti-inflammatory actions. Research has also shown that it bonds to collagen fibers to repair damaged tendons and bone.



The epidemic of gut problems makes it difficult for many people to properly assimilate nutrients, even those that are readily available in food. Humic Acid provides the building blocks for the production of digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes are needed to break down food and prevent constipation and putrefaction. Compacted and undigested food promotes pathogenic bacteria, fungus and yeast growth, all secreting toxins, which then get absorbed back into the body. 

Humic Acid delivers essential nutrients to the intestinal cells and works as a PREBIOTIC. It helps support a healthy microbial balance by nurturing more beneficial stomach bacteria “the good bugs”. It may also help to eliminate candida from the intestinal tract. It can also break down complex nutrients for easier absorption.

Humic and Fulvic Acids have a healing effect on digestive tract ulcers by stimulating the blood circulation in the stomach wall and inhibiting the secretion of acid from the stomach wall. It can also stimulate the secretion of glands in the stomach which have the ability to protect the inner stomach wall, preventing and healing stomach ulcers. 



Humic and Fulvic Acids are the strongest natural electrolyte known to man. Electrolytes are IONs (electrically charged), the scientific name for salt. Electrolytes are essential to cells because in molecular processes they permit electrons to be set loose, transferring electrical current, by allowing the flow of ions. These active compounds are used by our cells to maintain voltages across cellular membranes and to convey electrical impulses to other cells. Humic and Fulvic Acids restore the electrochemical balance between our body’s cells, enabling them to become more healthy and active.

When the electrolyte potential deteriorates, so does our energy and health. It is one of the main reasons why we get old. Heavy metals, toxic chemicals, fungus and yeast all lower the body’s electrical potential. Humic and Fulvic Acids help eliminate these from the body, while energizing the biological tissue it comes into contact with, creating an electrical current. Cells deprived of electrical current become diseased and die. It is essential that the electrical potential of all cells remain balanced and "charged".



Humic and Fulvic Acids give back what was stolen from nature (see The Disappearance of Humic and Fulvic Acids). A healthy body requires the intake of vitamins, minerals, and essential acids such as amino, folic, lactic, citric and the like. Many experts now believe Humic Acid is one of the most vital and complex acids we can consume. It is also considered the most bio-ionically transferable natural material in the world. This is one of the key mechanisms of Humic and Fulvic Acids, which allow it to have such a broad spectrum of benefits.

Humic Acids contain many nutritional phytochemical groups, including natural sterols, ketones, hormones, polyphenols, and fatty acids, as well as phytochemical subgroups of compounds such as quinones, flavonoids, isoflavones, flavones, flavins, catechins, tannins, and tocopherols. These compounds are some of the most recognized anti-cancer nutrients known today.

Humic Acids contain a vast assortment of naturally occurring bio-chemicals, including powerful antioxidants, phytochemicals, biochemicals, free-radical scavengers, super oxide dismutases, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals.



When we are malnourished, the appetite center in the brain becomes over-stimulated. Lacking the required nutrients, our bodies are put into a state of Chronic Body Acidity and begin producing excess fat, primarily  around our mid-section, in order to store excess acids and protect vital organs. In doing so, it also stores excess toxins in fat rather than allowing it to accrue in vital organs. 

Humic and Fulvic Acids alter the way the body processes simple sugars and refined carbohydrates (starches). It can assist in converting these substances to energy and transports the excess out of the body, instead of causing them to be stored as fat.

Additionally, the balanced bio-available mineral structure of Humic and Fulvic Acid promotes optimal blood oxygenation that can boost our metabolism. 

More on this….



Humic and Fulvic Acids help to increase the blood oxygen by optimizing the complex mineral balance in your blood. It properly structures the blood plasma so the blood can carry more oxygen. Blood Oxygenation also allows the blood to carry more Acidic CO2 (the primary acidic by-product produced in normal aerobic energy production) to the lungs that we release when we exhale.

Proper Blood oxygenation helps Lower the Heart Rate (because the body is able to carry more oxygen, the heart does not have to work as hard), Regulate Blood Pressure (helps normalize Hypertension), and Strengthen Cardiovascular and Lymphatic Systems (by naturally circulating essential minerals in their proper proportion to our cells and tissues, then removing acidic wastes and toxins from our body).

Humic and Fulvic Acids stimulate, restore and improve blood circulation. It is important to have a properly functioning capillary blood system, as many diseases are caused by poor circulation. It also helps to coagulate blood when there is bleeding from the vascular bed. 

More oxygen in the blood can help us feel more energized, repair injuries faster, heighten mental clarity and skills, feel more alert, and boost our metabolism. 

Athletes may benefit immensely from taking Humic and Fulvic Acids because the increased oxygen to the red blood cells can improve stamina and endurance. It can also help the body to recover quicker and can decrease soreness by buffering the lactic acid. 



Humic and Fulvic Acids have been dubbed by many scientists as the “Missing Link”. Studies and documentation on the vast array of beneficial properties of Humic and Fulvic Acids conducted by universities and scientists around the world (see Scientific Studies), show it to be one of the most outstanding health and scientific breakthroughs of the 21st century.  

Humic and Fulvic Acids lessen the immune systems burden by delivering cellular nutrients and eliminating toxins, viruses and certain pathogenic bacteria. It is nature’s most powerful adaptogenic compound, giving the body the tools it needs to simultaneously up-regulate and down-regulate immune functions to optimally balance the body. By balancing the body’s polymorphic terrain, pathogens are less able to flourish and replicate. 


CANCER - When chemotherapy and radiation therapy are used to kill the cancerous cells, they harm healthy cells in the process. 

Humic and Fulvic Acids may help fight cancer by forming complex sugars within the body. According to Dr. Daryl See, M.D., Immunologist of UCLA Medical School, "The abundance of these complex sugars allows the body to manufacture glycoproteins that attach to the killer and T cells acting as a modulator or communication link between the cells. This regulates the immune system cells and prevents either T or Killer cells from becoming out of balance."  This can prevent triggering an immune response that attack the body’s own cells, especially during radiation therapy. This also reduces the chances of an infection and may be considered a possible treatment option for the ill effects of radiation.

Additionally, Humic and Fulvic Acids activate and increase the body's production of macrophages. Macrophages consume foreign invaders, while killer T-cells seek out and destroy them. Unless your doctor specifically says otherwise, consuming Humic and Fulvic Acids as part of your cancer treatment can be very beneficial. 


AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE - The white blood cells in the body’s immune system help protect against harmful substances. Examples include bacteria, viruses, toxins, cancer cells, and blood and tissue from outside the body. These substances contain antigens. The immune system produces antibodies against these antigens that enable it to destroy these harmful substances.

An autoimmune disorder occurs when the body's immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissue by mistake. Humic/Fulvic Acids stimulate the thymus gland's ability to produce lymphocytes, which in turn produce antibodies.

Approximately 1 in 5 people suffer from auto-immune diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Celiac Disease, Type 1 Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. In fact, there are as many as 80 types of autoimmune diseases.

Scientists have determined that to successfully treat many serious diseases, including some incurable diseases caused by viruses, the immune system needs to be controlled selectively. Humic and Fulvic Acids are able to do this naturally, suppressing certain immune responses, while increasing others. The ability to selectively inhibit or promote the body's immune response may be one of the reasons it has been so successful in the treatment and even the cure of historically incurable diseases.

Some forms of Arthritis is initiated through a viral process. Humic and Fulvic Acids help reduce inflammation. By lowering the viral initiated process, you may reduce or eliminate the aspect of the arthritic process that contributes to arthritic conditions.

Arthritis sufferers taking Humic and Fulvic Acids have noticed an immediate and marked increase in discomfort, lasting for approximately 1 to 2 weeks after beginning of use. This discomfort is believed to be due to the breakdown of calcium deposits in the joints and the ongoing and subsequent dissolution and removal of them. 

Humic and Fulvic Acids may chelate the calcium deposits, transforming them into a more suitable form that becomes beneficial to the body. 

After a slightly painful period, the discomfort begins to diminish and the relief begins. Some arthritis sufferers notice a relief in their symptoms in 2 to 3 weeks. Others may take longer, noticing significant relief of arthritis symptoms in about 30 days. A significant number of people report total relief in 1-5 months.



A virus has one purpose: to make more viruses (see Viruses). But it needs a host cell in order to multiply. When a virus enters the body, it seeks out a cell on which it can bind, tricking it into letting it come inside. Once there, it makes its way into the cell’s nucleus where it takes the cell’s “machinery” hostage and forces it to begin making more viruses. The cell releases the new viruses into the bloodstream where they go off in search of new cells to infect and so on and so forth. One virus goes in, millions come out. 

Humic and Fulvic Acids can block this process through Viral Fusion Inhibition (“VFI”). VFI refers to the interruption of the binding, fusion, and entry of a virus into a cell. It does this by coating the receptor sites of the virus with a thin protective film, preventing the virus from binding with cells. 

If a person is already infected, taking Humic and Fulvic Acids can help prevent the new generation(s) of viruses from attaching to other cells. If it can’t attach, it can’t go inside to multiply. VFI lowers the body’s viral load over time, resulting in a decrease in the severity of symptoms, the duration of infection, and the frequency of outbreaks. Viruses must replicate at a very fast rate, so when you stop the process, you are quick to eliminate any symptoms or side effects of being ill.

Humic and Fulvic Acids may also help minimize the chances of latent viral outbreaks. A latent viral infection is a type of persistent viral infection in which the pathogenic virus lies dormant within the host cells, such as cold sores, genital herpes and shingles.

Humic and Fulvic Acids studies have shown VFI success in a broad spectrum of viruses, meaning it may be useful against Influenza, including the Swine Flu, MERS, West Nile Virus, Hemorrhagic Fever, Rhinoviruses, Coxsackie, Mononucleosis, Asian or Bird Flu, Herpes, Hepatitis C, and HIV-1 Virus, one of the viruses responsible for the development of AIDS.



Because of its large molecular size, Humic Acid may block stress hormones from reaching the receptor site, which can help regulate the effects of our stress hormones. A study conducted at Penn State University found that the rats that were given Humic Acid showed much lower levels of stress hormones than those not given the compound.



Humic and Fulvic Acids enhance and increase the absorption of nutrients from both food and supplements by absorbing the nutrient into the fulvic structure and transporting the nutrient into the cell. Because of the Humic and Fulvic Acids’ ability to restore and optimize the cell membrane, users should be mindful about what they consume. Alcohol, caffeine, sugar and the like may be more easily absorbed, and vitamins, minerals, herbs, and tinctures may become more potent.

Fulvic Acid helps make cell walls more permeable by reducing their surface tension. It has a low molecular weight, and because it is so small, it can easily penetrate the cell membrane. It is able to travel from cell to cell, depositing nutrients and taking toxins out. In turn, the cell can efficiently hydrate and absorb minerals, amino acids and other vital nutrients. 

Whenever minerals come into contact with Fulvic Acid in a water medium, they are naturally dissolved into an ionic form and become part of the Fulvic Acid itself. This makes them bioactive and bioavailable so they can be more easily and readily absorbed. Humic and Fulvic Acid naturally carries plant-derived micronutrients, no longer found in our food crops (see The Disappearance of Humic and Fulvic Acids), directly to our cells.

Malnourished individuals might have nutrients in the blood stream, but may not be able to transport these nutrients into the cells. Humic and Fulvic Acids can help make these nutrients available to the cells and restore the electrochemical balance.



Humic and Fulvic Acids may regulate abnormal thyroid hormone secretion as a result of its being able to regulate cyclic nucleotides at a cellular level. By stabilizing the immune system, it may help balance the thyroid system and keep the thymus gland healthy. Humic and Fulvic Acids may also stimulate the thymus gland's ability to produce lymphocytes, which in turn produce antibodies.

Humic and Fulvic Acids have shown to be beneficial in the treatment of kidney disease. By reducing the toxic load on the kidneys and filtering out uric acid, it can help the kidneys to function better, including proper secretion of the endocrine hormones erythropoietin and renin. 



Scientists theorize that mineral deficiency subjects us to more diseases, aging, sickness and destruction of our physical well-being than any other factor in personal health. 

We’ve learned the many benefits of Humic and Fulvic Acids - from increased blood circulation to better nutrient absorption and reduced inflammation. We know they are very high in plant phytochemicals (antioxidants), which scavenge free radicals and protect against unnatural oxidation.  All of these factors contribute to the slowing or reversing of the typical aging processes.



Humic and Fulvic Acids, with its minerals and electrolytes, improves the mitochondria by detoxing the cell and improving production of ATP (cellular fuel). The Fulvic Acid donors electrons to the mitochondria to lesson the oxidation during the production of ATP. Fulvic Avid’s ability to both optimize ATP production and keep the mitochondria healthy is key to cellular energy and longevity.
