Fulvic Acid Minerals Information

Medicinal value of the Humic extract known as Fulvic acid is astounding and very well-documented

Many reports on the beneficial use of humic substances, especially fulvic acid, for human health and medicine have been published. These include reports documented in the Chinese Materia Medica pharmacological compendium, dating back to the 15th century Ming Dynasty. During that period, a very famous medical doctor, Li Shi Zhen, used "Wujinsan", meaning "golden medicine", containing humic and fulvic acids as the active ingredient in the treatment of infectious ulcerous growth and female hemorrhage diseases. These studies showed humic and fulvic acids to be efficient anti-inflammatory and blood coagulating agents.

Hospital eye clinic patients with ulcerous cornea infection had 94.2% success rate when treated with fulvic acid eye drops and injections.

In China, prior to 1978, humic and fulvic acids had been used in hospitals and among the general population for the treating of a wide range of diseases with success. Up to that point there was very little research conducted on the pharmacology of its therapeutic mechanism. Because of lack of clinical data, doubt and misconceptions remained as to therapeutic use.

Hospital patients treated for chronic ulcerous colon infections had 92.6% success rate when treated with fulvic acid enema.

Since that time, many medical schools and hospitals in China have engaged in extensive studies on the toxicology and pathological aspects of humic and fulvic acids and their clinical applications. Hundreds of research papers have now been published nationally in China, and some have appeared in international journals and have been presented at various meetings outside of China.

Hospital patients with acute upper gastroenterological bleeding had 95.6% success rate when treated with fulvic acid oral medicine and injections.

Pharmaceutical companies in Da Tong, Shanxi, in Gongxian, Henan and in Kunming, Yunnan are manufacturing humic acid medicines which are appoved by the Chinese Drug Administration. Because of their non-toxicity, the humic extract fulvic acid is approved for internal as well as external use.

Clinical medical studies using humic and fulvic acids were performed on thousands of hemorrhoid patients, which were so successful that the Chinese government had a special pharmaceutical preparation developed for treatment of this condition.

Chinese doctors now use fulvic related medicines to reduce inflammation, increase circulation and control bleeding, to regulate the immune system and hormone systems, to heal digestive tract disorders, and as an anti-cancer and anti-tumor therapy.

German companies have a number of humic and fulvic based products. These include the following healing bath additives: Moorbad Saar N, Humopin N, Leukona Sulfomoor-Bad N, Salhumin Rheuma-Bad, Salhumin Sitbad N, Salhmin Teilbad N, Contrheuma-Bad L, mostly for the relief of rheumatism and arthritis. Huminit is used internally for the treatment of stomach hyperacidity and other gastric disturbances, gastric ulcers and gastroenteritis in humans. Veterinary medicines include, Kalumin, Sulumin, Salhumin and Kalumat for the therapy and prevention of diarrhea and enteritis.

Studies of patients with gastric and duodenal ulcers showed that 91.1% had condition improve when treated with fulvic acid. Treatment showed no side effects, substantially diminished pain, with few relapses, with 61.1% of patients being completely cured.

Studies show that humic, and especially fulvic acids do occur naturally in the human diet. Waters from streams and rivers running through forested land contain dissolved humic and fulvic acids. Humic and fulvic acids occur in living plants grown in organic humus containing soils, and humic and fulvic acids have been isolated from live plants. Humic and fulvic acids have been found in the gastrointestinal tract of humans and animals and are absorbed. They circulate with the blood and are metabolized in the liver.

In 1988, Dr. S. A. Visser reviewed the medicinal value of humic substances in an article entitled: "Effects of humic substances on higher animals and man; the possible use of humic compounds in medical treatments", which was presented at the International Humic Substance Society meeting in Sevilla, Spain. His findings showed that the medicinal applications of humic and fulvic acids can be external as well as internal.

Hospital studies in China show that elderly patients, ages 60-90, when treated with fulvic acid, regained appetite, slept better, and became more energetic. Other hospital studies coming from India show that fulvic acids are considered to be a powerful anti-aging therapy that also able to help with symptoms of dementia.

Dr. Visser stated that external applications of humic and fulvic acids are based on their use as antiphlogistic (antiinflammatory), analgesic (pain relieving), hyperemic (blood flow increasing), anti-rheumatic, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, antiviral and anti-cancer agents. Humic and fulvic acids have also been used externally in the treatment of hematoma (localized accumulation of blood), phlebitis (inflammation of veins), desmorrhexis (rupture of a ligament), and myogelosis (hardening of a muscle), as well as for the treatment of patients with contusions, distortions, cervical (neck) complaints, lumbago (pain in the lower back), ischias (pelvic pain in the hip joint), arthrosis (non-inflammatory arthritis), polyarthritis (arthritis of multiple joints), osteoarthritis (arthrosis deformans), and with osteochondrosis (ossification of cartilage).

With respect to internal use, humic and fulvic acids have been shown to be particularly useful in the prophylaxis (prevention), therapy and metaphylaxis (after-care) of a variety of stomach and intestinal troubles such as, hyper-acidity, diarrhea, gastric ulcers, dysentery, gastroenteritis and colitis. They can also act as a detoxifying agent, and have been used against bacterial and viral infections. They have been found to be useful in the treatment of anemia (deficiency of red blood cells, hemoglobin or total blood volume) and as a stimulator of the body's immune system and of detoxifying liver functions. By counteracting certain kinds of cancerous growth, humic acids may also have a potential as an anti-carcinogen.

Many of these effects can be attributed to the activity of humic and fulvic acids by themselves, and are the result of their surface activity, chelating properties, power of absorption, their polyacidic nature, their polyphenolic structure, their interaction with other organic molecules including polysaccharides, proteins, enzymes and lipids, as well as of their redox properties and fee radical content. No unfavorable side effects have so far been noticed with the administration of humic or fulvic acids.

Dr. G. Davies summarized the effects of humic acids in the Nucleus, Feb. 1996, in a monograph titled "Properties and functions of humic acids." He stated that oral doses of humic acids reduce heavy metal absorption in animals and also decrease pesticide toxicity. Humic acids can be administered preventatively and therapeutically in animals, including pregnant animals, without apparent risk. Some humic acids control uterine cancer in rats and humic acids markedly reduce the mutagenic effect of benzopyrene, 3-aminoanthracene, 2-nitrofluorene and 1-nitropyrene. The anti-mutagenic effect depends upon the adsorption of these dangerous chemicals onto the humic acid surface. Since fulvic acid is humic acid, the bioactive component, all data applies to fulvic acid as well.

Recent research articles by Dr. Senesi and Dr. Miano clearly link humic and fulvic acid properties with human health.

Hospital patients with rheumatoid arthritis had 92% success rate when treated with humic extract baths.
