Humic and Fulvic Acids have a strong position in natural medicine for two reasons. They are truly “earth based” from specific soils and they have significant health impact in the area of mineral absorption and immune support.
Humic Acid is supported by science and clinical studies and represents “the form” for ingestion between the two materials. Fulvic acid is a readily available material that assists in mineral absorption. You are not what you eat, but what you absorb.
A critical understanding is that fulvic acid is a very small absorbable mineral material used to supplement soils for plant growth. Humic Acid contains fulvic acid and is the material for human health. The internet is surprisingly confused in the communication of the differences between the two materials as well as the human benefit. One gross example is livestrong.com which states that there is no clinical science supporting the use of Humic acid!
Humic Acid has a broader and more effective capacity to be selective in immune cell support. One example is the issue of the overactive immune system that if improperly stimulated actually has a destructive effect on the body thus, promoting aging and disease state progression. Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus are two of many examples that are prevalent today.
Over the past several centuries the world’s population has gradually evolved from an agrarian society–thinly spread–to an urban, bundled society, living in closer proximity than at any time prior in human history. As a result, there is far more interpersonal contact–that is, interaction–within and between populations.
In addition, world travel has greatly enhanced the spread of contagious disease. The epidemiology is clear: an infectious disease (for example, the 1968/69 Hong Kong flu) takes 6-8 months to circle the globe in today’s world. The 1918 Spanish flu killed somewhere around 50-100 million people worldwide. Imagine if such an epidemic occurred today (for example, swine flu; or air-born Ebola). Yet we are no better prepared to deal with such an outbreak than we were in 1918.
The ease of transmission of viral diseases, coupled with the potential for their rapid spread, means that no matter where we are in the world we are all at risk.
A New Answer: Humic Acid
On the optimistic side, modern pharmaceutical research continues to yield medications for a wide variety of illnesses; natural-product (nutraceutical) materials are often the source of inspiration behind new-drug development.
Humic acid–a soil extract–is one of the newest, most-exciting such natural products to reach the nutraceutical marketplace in recent years. It offers far-reaching benefits for human health and when properly sourced and processed, it is transformed into Humic Acid , the world’s first all-natural, safe, broad-spectrum antiviral.
Research on Humic has shown that it interferes with the mechanisms responsible for the viral infection of host cells. When added to cells either during or after viral adsorption, Humic Acid inhibits virus-to-cell fusion. Humic Acid can even displace viruses that have already attached to host cells. In either event, the viruses cannot replicate, and either die off or are destroyed by the host immune system.
Clinical data have firmly established the broad-spectrum efficacy of Humic Acid against such diverse viral types as hepatitis C, herpes, hemorrhagic fever, HIV, and influenza viruses.
On a commercial note, the world market for antiviral drugs, currently estimated at well over $60 billion per annum, represents one of the most challenging yet most significant global opportunities in the twenty-first century.
Worldwide Demand for a Safe, All-Natural, Effective Anti-Viral is Enormous.
In 1998, $4 billion dollars was spent on treatments for viral and bacterial diseases around the world. By 2004, that number had increased to $36 billion. Of that, over $9 billion was spent to fight viruses–an amount that increased to $14 billion in 2007. Overall, the natural products industry grew 9.8 percent in 2007 to more than $62 billion in sales.
No one knows exactly how much is spent on therapies that have little or no effect on viruses. Or on treatments that are more harmful than helpful. But we do know that millions of people let viral infections take their course and attempt no treatment at all. Probably because most people don’t yet know an all-natural, completely safe, and highly effective anti-viral is now available.
