Humic and Fulvic Acids are complex organic substances found in humates which are formed in deep, ancient soils through the natural microbial humification of plant matter. Well-known for boosting new plant growth, Humic Acids have also been used in traditional therapies to treat human inflammatory conditions for over 3,000 years. Science is only now recognizing the benefits of Humic Acids for human health, with recent studies confirming their ability to significantly relieve osteoarthritic joint pain and positively impact the digestive microbiome.
Humic Acids have been shown to:
Reduce knee osteoarthritic knee pain and improve physical functioning(1,2)
Inhibit the release of inflammatory cytokines(1)
Reduce CRP (C-Reactive Proteins) associated with inflammation(1,2)
Optimize the delivery of poorly absorbed nutrients (eg. Beta carotene)(3)
Increase the concentration of key friendly bacteria in the gut by 20-30%(4)
