- Promotes the elimination of toxins, parasites, fungi and heavy metals, particularly in the colon.
- Provides effective support for the immune system.
- Helps to increase the absorption of minerals and trace elements.
Humic & Fulvic Acids represent the missing link in achieving optimal health, with their benefits for revitalising the body as a whole by chelating toxins and stimulating overall immunity.
Humic acid is a mixture of water-soluble organic substances often found in surface water. Fulvic acid is one of its many sub-groups. Scientists have discovered that fulvic acid is made up of tiny fragments of DNA from past generations which have remained intact as if to ensure continuity of life. It may therefore serve as a ‘bridge' between minerals and living organic matter.
The unique combination of these two acids – fulvic and humic – is found in decomposing plant material, as well as in organic and mineral substances which have accumulated over years and seep out from bituminous rocks, particularly leonardite. Any reading of Ayurvedic medical texts will show that taking these two substances together in their natural state has been recognised for over 3000 years. Traditional use of this combination is rooted in its powerful tonic and adaptogen properties – taken regularly, it increases energy and stamina by restoring levels of cellular ATP, now available in supplement form, delivered in vegetarian capsules.
Since they have a negative charge, these acids can combine just as well with ‘aromatic carboxyl' groups as they can with ‘phenolic hydroxyl' ones. They act as ion exchangers, releasing metal ions of low atomic mass in order to chelate heavy metals. This process helps to increase the absorption of minerals, trace elements and ensure homeostatic balance.
When minerals come into contact with fulvic acid, they combine with them and become bioactive, bioavailable and organic. We now know that a decrease in electrical potential (Zeta potential) leads to a general decline in health and premature ageing. As an electron donor and receiver, fulvic acid stimulates electrochemical equilibrium and helps restore the body's homeostasis. Through its electrolyte properties, fulvic acid is a remarkable immune modulator.
According to various studies conducted by, amongst others, the National Institute of Health, humic acid provides effective support for the immune system. Humic acid also encourages complete detoxification by supporting the main emunctory organs (kidneys, skin, intestines, liver and lungs) and thorough elimination of toxins, parasites, fungi and heavy metals, particularly in the colon.
For optimal detoxification, other powerful heavy metal chelators are also available to buy at the SuperSmart catalogue. EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), for example, is known for its ability to bind to lead, while DMSA (dimercaptosuccinic acid) is recognised as a powerful mercury chelator. There's also zeolite clinoptilolite, a natural and versatile chelator of several heavy metals.
