Do not take product directly with medications or alcohol                                                                    

Trace Botanicals® Daily Dirt and Quantum Fulvic Complex can make cell membranes more permeable, meaning it makes the cell easier to penetrate. This is fantastic for allowing all the good stuff, like vitamins and nutrients, to be more easily absorbed. Because cells are more absorbent, substances like alcohol, caffeine, and chemically processed and/or sugary foods can enter the cells more easily, too. Eating whole, organic foods and drinking high-quality, filtered water is highly recommended as part of a health maintenance. 

Although we have never had a customer report having a negative experience combining their medications with our products, we recommend consulting with your physician about this first.

It is recommended you take our products at least 1 hour after taking medications to avoid possible over-medication.



If you are pregnant, nursing or have any allergic reaction to trace minerals, or if you have any chronic or re-occurring symptoms or illness, consult your doctor or other professional healthcare provider before using this product.



Daily Dirt and Quantum Fulvic Complex is a powerful detoxifier. Most bodies will experience the order of detoxifying, repairing, and then regulating itself. Depending on your current state of health, a healing crisis may occur. This is completely normal and healthy. Detoxification is your body’s way of eliminating what’s out of balance like toxins and other things not beneficial to your well being. 

A healing crisis, also known as the Herxheimer Reaction, occurs when the toxins are released faster than the body can eliminate them.

Mild detoxification symptoms can occur if you take too much too quickly, particularly in people who have never been on any type of detoxification protocol, or in people who have an excessive amount of toxic build up. Users may experience headache, nausea, diarrhea, mild joint aches, phlegm, and other flu-like symptoms.

If you do experience any detox symptoms and are uncomfortable, simply reduce the serving size. As your body adjusts and you start feeling better, you can move towards the recommended dosages.The detox reaction is typically short-lived, anywhere from one day to a few weeks.

Remember one of the important benefits of Daily Dirt and Quantum Fulvic Complex is to help the body detoxify. Although the detoxification process may not be pleasant, the symptoms are generally an indication that healing is taking place. When detoxifying, always increase your intake of quality, non-chlorinated water.                            

When detoxing heavy metals, it is recommended to consume healthy, organic fats such as  cold pressed coconut oil, avocado oil, flaxseed oil, or ghee. Healthy fats can bond to heavy metals which can help carry them out of the body more effectively. 

Arthritis sufferers taking Daily Dirt or Quantum Fulvic Complex may notice 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. After a slightly painful period, the discomfort should begin to diminish and the relief in symptoms should begin in 2 to 3 weeks. For some people this process can take up to 30 days. 



We should all be drinking clean, filtered water. Sadly, most municipal tap water contains harmful additives such as arsenic, fluoride, and chlorine. 

In the 1970’s scientists discovered that when chlorine is added to our water it reacts with natural organic matter, creating THMs (Trihalomethanes) and MXs (Unknown Mutagens). When ingested, these by-products can produce free radicals in the body, which can destroy or damage vital cells and are highly carcinogenic.

A joint study by research scientists at the National Institute of Health Sciences and Shizuoka Prefectural University determined that natural organic substances originating from foods also react to chlorinated tap water, forming dangerous cancer causing MXs. This suggests that we are creating toxins in our bodies when we drink tap water with meals that include fruits, vegetables, green tea, black tea, herbal teas, and soy products.

The Environmental Defense Fund states that: “Although concentrations of these carcinogens (THMs) are low, it is precisely these low levels that cancer scientists believe are responsible for the majority of human cancers in the United States.”

Chlorine and THMs have been linked to various types of cancer, kidney and liver damage, immune system dysfunction, disorders of the nervous system, asthma, eczema, heart disease, higher miscarriage and birth defects.

What does this mean for Daily Dirt and Quantum Fulvic Complex? Because Humic and Fulvic Acid is a powerful organic substance, it has the same potential to react with chlorinated water to produce these toxic byproducts, just like our fresh plant foods. This may cause you to be in a constant state of detoxification, as our products work to rid your body of these new toxins.


Excerpts from the Experts:

“Cancer risk among people using chlorinated water is as much as 93 percent higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine,” – U.S. Council of Environmental Quality.


50-60% higher levels of chlorination in the breast tissue of women with breast cancer than women without breast cancer. – Study Findings University of Minnesota Researcher Breast Cancer Research (Hartford, CT)


"Long-term drinking of chlorinated water appears to increase a person's risk of developing bladder cancer as much as 80 percent,” – Journal of the National Cancer Institute.


"The drinking of chlorinated water has finally been officially linked to an increased incidence of colon cancer.” An epidemiologist at Oak Ridge Associated Universities completed a study of colon cancer victims and non-cancer patients and concluded that the drinking of chlorinated water for 15 years or more was conducive to a high rate of colon cancer,"  – Health Freedom News, January/February 1987.


“Chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times. It is an insidious poison”. – Dr. Joseph M. Price, MD


“The Chlorine problem is similar to that of air pollution, chlorine is the greatest crippler and killer of modern times!” – Dr. Robert Carlson


Do you know what happens when you put chlorine into a fish bowl? All the fish die. That is why fish tanks come with a de-chlorinator. So then why are we drinking a chemical that kills another organism in a matter of hours?             


Non-chlorinated, quality bottled, distilled, filtered, or reverse osmosis. If you have no option other than to drink unfiltered tap water, let the water stand for 24 hours so the chlorine evaporates.



Not all deposits are alike! While deposits of Humic Acid can be found all over the world, quality, purity, and efficacy vary greatly by source. Substandard deposits may be lacking in important minerals and trace elements, contain suboptimal amounts of humic and fulvic acids, be contaminated by veins of heavy metals, other inorganic substances, or industrial poisons. Manufacturing and processing can also impact the efficacy, quality, and purity of the final product.

Humic and Fulvic Acids from outside the United States is often contaminated with radiation, toxic heavy metals, and bacteria

Saltwater-derived humates are poorly absorbed and can be harmful for humans. Their molecules are too big to penetrate cell walls, which can cause toxic heavy metal build-up. Trace Botanicals® Daily Dirt, Quantum Fulvic Complex and SkinCare & Repair is from a freshwater rainforest, which means it is low in molecular weight and size. This allows the HFC to work effectively and efficiently, by making it more easily digested and absorbed by our cells.      


Trace Botanicals® products come from the most pristine deposit located in the United States. The humate used to make our products was formed from a fresh water lake that was buried and preserved before humans populated the planet. The deposit is away from pollutants and petroleum-based agricultural products. Rather than using city water or well water, snow melt from the Rocky Mountains is used to process the material. Our products are never processed with heat, pressure or chemicals and do not contain fillers or GMOs.

Our products are manufactured in the United States with the highest and most exacting manufacturing standards, using Good Manufacturing Practices set forth by the US Federal Drug Administration. They are continuously analyzed and tested by certified laboratories and universities and continues to be recognized as some of the richest Humic and Fulvic Acids in the world. 




A recent study showed that 1 in 3 Supplements are FAKE! Canadian researchers used DNA tests to show that many pills labeled as “healing herbs” are, according to the New York Times, “little more than powdered rice and weeds.”                                                                                         

The New York Times also reported that top-selling store brands of herbal supplements at the four major retailers did not contain any of the herbs listed on their labels. Instead, they contained cheap fillers like powdered vegetables and houseplants, or ingredients that could pose a threat to people with allergies. 


Specific Findings:  

  • Walmart's Ginkgo Biloba, which is marketed as a memory booster, contained powdered radish, houseplants and wheat, even though it claimed to be wheat and gluten free. 


  • Walgreen's own Ginseng pills contained only powdered garlic and rice. 


  • Target’s  St. John's Wort, Ginkgo Biloba, and Valerian Root had absolutely no herbs and were made of powdered rice, beans, peas and wild carrots. 


  • GNC herbal pills contained unlisted fillers such as powdered legumes, which can trigger allergic reactions in those who have peanut and soybean sensitivities.


The New York Times also reported that two of the most common herbal supplements that Americans consume, Echinacea and St. Johns Wort, were the most contaminated and poor quality, if even “real” at all:


  • Echinacea supplements, used by millions of people to prevent and treat colds, were tested and shown to contain Parthenium Hysterophorus, a ground up bitter weed, that is an invasive plant found in India and Australia that can cause nausea, rashes, and stomach gas.


  • Two bottles labeled as St. John’s Wort, used to treat mild depression, contained none of the medicinal herb. Instead, the pills in one bottle were made of rice, and the other bottle contained only Alexandrian Senna, an Egyptian yellow shrub that is a strong laxative. 


  • Gingko Biloba supplements, known to help enhance memory, were mixed with fillers and black walnut, which can be potentially deadly for people with nut allergies.


The study warned that, “most of the herbal products tested were of poor quality, including considerable product substitution, contamination and use of fillers. These activities dilute the effectiveness of otherwise useful remedies, lowering the perceived value of all related products because of a lack of consumer confidence in them.”

It turns out that many vitamins, including 80% of Vitamin C sold in the U.S., are now imported from China. Who knows what we are actually getting!

 Most vitamin and mineral supplements ARE NOT in an organic, bioavailable form. Remember, “bioavailable” means your body recognizes it and your cells can use it right away. This means it is very difficult for our bodies to actually convert these inferior vitamins and minerals into a form we can actually use. They end up being essentially useless and excreted through our intestines, liver or kidneys. 

Liquid mineral supplements can become toxic because they are much easier absorbed than pills and what isn’t eliminated or converted, can be stored in our tissues as “mineral metals”. 

Trace Botanicals®  only uses the highest quality Humic and Fulvic Acids and does not contain any fillers or chemicals. 



Colloidal minerals do not work on their own. True colloidal minerals are still in metallic form, only they are smaller in size. That means they are not bioavailable and therefore not readily useable by cells. Colloidal minerals MUST be mixed with Fulvic Acid in order for them to actually work. 

The colloidal mineral preparations that do have Fulvic Acid in them may be highly diluted or have low or inconsistent volume or stability. They may be made with sulfuric acid to dissolve the solids. To determine if a colloidal mineral is in a mixture of proper Fulvic Acid, shine the beam from a laser penlight at the solution. If the light reflects on anything solid, you know it is a fake. DO NOT CONSUME. The minerals should be dissolved, therefore light should pass through the solution with no reflection.



There is currently NO METHOD TO ACCURATELY DETERMINE THE PERCENTAGES of the Fulvic Acid in a product. Companies claiming to have high Fulvic Acid percentages in their products are supplying guesstimates at best and those numbers would vary greatly if tested in other facilities.
