Fulvic Acid Side Effects
Posted by BevilNC (NC) on 03/23/2022

I am doing the Candida Protocol and a few days ago I took a couple of drops of Optimally Organic Fulvic in distilled water. A couple hours later I was throwing up and having sharp pains in my abdomen. It took two days for my stomach to feel right again. Felt lousy, no appetite. So I ordered Wu Jin San and today I mixed the lowest dose 0.5 oz in 6 oz of distilled water...and again a couple hours later I was throwing up and having sharp pains. I could not even hold a sip of water down, it's like my stomach just shut down and was rejecting anything. After several hours of misery I sipped a tiny bit of water with a little baking soda in it and felt some relief. What am I missing about Fulvic? Are there some people it is simply contradictory for?

I am taking BOO too, it's an amazing product and I absolutely love it. Unfortunately now the company has closed down. I still have some left but looking for a new source of Humic and Fulvic acid. I love the black gold. How did you go with BOO?

I firmly believe the original poster is using the supremefulvic brand. The description on how its extracted and source is similar to the faq section of the site.

I am using the same brand as well and it provided "immediate" relief to my reflux and eventually curing it.

It's how I knew mine is just not placebo.

I am continuing using it to see if there are other benefits

Bill Thompson, Thanks!

I have your book Re Candida. You mention taking a few granules of humic/fulvic. Please help us find a good source. I've been using Carboxy from CellCore and just bought some BOO (black oxygen organics)from Canada. These are very expensive. Plus they turn the water black and you said it should be light golden brown, not black. Please help!

Buying Guide to Humic and Fulvic Acid
Posted by Hal (New Mexico) on 11/02/2018

The most important issue seems to be left out here. The way the acids are extracted is of paramount importance. Bio ag and others are still using Acid precipitation to extract fulvic acid and in the process they are combining the naturally occurring organic minerals with an acid rendering them sulfates or nitrates or the signature of which ever acid used. Non-precipitated products are the only ones that are safe for human consumption.

Hello there Siri NYC,

I was wondering if the Fulvic Acid did you any good when all was said and done. Was that just a detox you were going through? Did you keep or discontinue this supplement?

I have been trying the Fulvic Acid out about a week. I now hope to improve blood circulation. I did one drop once a day for about 3 days, then I moved up to two drops, now I am on 3 drops once a day. I am doing well so far. I do believe I am thinking much clearer. That all I can say for right now.

Let me also add that the fulvic acid, also caused me to remember my dreams even when I took only one drop a day. I hope this is a clue that it is helping my blood circulation.

The highest grades of fulvic acid have a low ph until they are consumed. Once consumed it functions the same way a lime or lemon does.

For well over a decade, I have suffered from a chronic skin condition on my hands. They would itch, become inflamed, and swell. Then my fingers would crack and bleed. It was very painful, looked horrifying at its worst state, and made my life miserable. I don't know if it was eczema or psoriasis or whether it was caused by parasites or a fungal infection. I just knew I wanted to be free from it. No matter how much money I spent on natural and non-toxic remedies and supplements, I could never fully get rid of it.

I even tried about a half-dozen fulvic acid products including several of those commonly mentioned on this forum, but saw zero improvement. Several of those products were extracted from the humate deposit in northwestern New Mexico in the USA which is touted as being the “best" fulvic source in the world. However, when it was tested for fulvic content it was actually quite low.

Despite my past experiences, I decided to try yet another fulvic product in 2015 even though I did not have very high expectations. The company selling it claimed their fulvic product was superior from competing products for two important reasons. First, the source of the unique leonardite shale comes from a rare deposit which is one of only two in the world. It is located in a remote and pristine environment and the shale is uncontaminated with a high concentration and quality of fulvic.

Second, the extraction is done using a patented, non-chemical process. Most fulvic is extracted using chemicals or a simple water extraction, but both methods yield very low fulvic content despite marketing claims to the contrary.

After just six weeks from the time I began adding this ultra-concentrated fulvic product to my daily regimen and taking it internally (at the amount recommended on the label), my skin condition was totally healed. I could hardly believe my eyes because it was not 90 or 95 percent gone, it was as though I had never had this skin condition. This proved to me that not all fulvic products are equal.

In addition, my allergy symptoms were significantly reduced. And my wife, who is a marathon runner, experienced much greater performance and endurance, plus her menstrual cramping and severe sinus pressure disappeared after she began consuming this same fulvic product.

Another person who had a life-changing experience was a client of my wife who has epilepsy and chronic fatigue syndrome. Within weeks after starting this particular fulvic, all of the multiple smaller seizures she had daily—that her anti-seizure medication does not help with—ceased, and her chronic fatigue symptoms were reversed. She was no longer a recluse and literally had a new lease on life.

Several months later, she ran out of this fulvic product and purchased a different brand, thinking it would produce the same therapeutic effect. However, the symptoms soon returned and she became bedridden again. Once she got more of this particular fulvic, her symptoms abated. Now she never wants to be without it ever again because of the remarkable difference it has made.

And neither do I. I have no doubt that this phenomenal dietary supplement will enhance anyone's wellbeing by supporting the body's innate ability to regenerate and guard against sickness, disease and premature aging. It even helps plants and animals to thrive as well.

I truly hope my story will inspire others who have been searching for a natural solution to their long-standing health issues to never give up because the answer is available to those who believe and search for it. Blessings!

Hi, The best resource I have found in the United States for really high quality Fulvic Acid is at www.earthpharmlabs.com

They have a free fulvic acid book download as well as other useful info. I've tried just about all of the different brands and this one is different. They process it to the Chinese standards of fulvic acid. In Chinese medicine they are very strict about standards for fulvic. The product must contain no minerals of any kind to be classified as true fulvic acid. There are many other criteria but that is the main one that I was interested in.

I wand to reply to this post just to enlighten folks around the potency and viability factors around fulvic. Our most commonly asked question about pure fulvic acid isolate...Question: Does not say the strength of the product percent of fulvic acid. There are a lot of products online that have very little fulvic acid in them. Does the potency matter? Earth Pharm's Answer: Our fulvic is a pure isolate. As there is no industry standardized testing method it is impossible to compare apples to apples. Suppliers who sell solely on concentration are taking advantage of customers who are unaware of the quantitative issues with fulvic. Many tests have limited refinement steps and favor polluted products. Our source supports the International Humic Substance Society adopted USGS/IHSS classical method . This is not the best extraction method, but the best for isolation and testing because it has the most refinement steps. However, because it produces the lowest fulvic numbers, and has the potential to expose unrefined products, it has yet to be adopted industry wide. It's also important to note that source and manufacturing methods make the most difference when it comes to product quality. If the concentration is high, but has been denatured by the extraction process or polluted with toxic minerals like mercury and lead, then it's of little value to your body. To our knowledge, our product is the only one on the market that provides actual fulvic acid content based on the newly approved test method for fulvic acid developed by the Humic Product Trade Association.The fulvic acid level is tested by the only accredited method which has just been approved this year by the International Humic Substances Society the Humic Product Trade association. Any other method is not valid and can not detect fraudulent products the new IHHS method can by using Hi Tech separation method. The new approved valid method uses a dialysis resin to test the fulvic because this duplicates the action of the kidneys, if it can pass through the kidneys then it will make it into the cell of your body instead of just being excreted in the urine. This is the key to the availability of fulvic acid called molecular weight if it can not pass through the test bed resin it has no biological value for plants or animals. This method prevents fraud and gives the only approved and valid method of testing the value and amount of bioactive fulvic acid. A word from our processing partners: “We really can't concentrate the product more than the current concentration because if it is too concentrated it “clumps” and will not enter the cell as well, you can not see the clumping with the naked eye it is on molecular level.”

With that said, it would be a disservice to our consumers to concentrate the product more as it will start to diminish the viability of the product on a molecular level making it have less open binding receptors. Find our Fulvic and answers to any questions at https://www.superimmune.org

I would like to know if someone have used fulvic acid from mineral logic http://www.fulvicmineral.com/? they have very much information on their site and have done several laboratory analyses, they even claim to have tested many other companies products and gives results to those analysis showing how their product is superior respect others. I am using Optimally Organics fulvic acid and mineral logic states on their site that it Optimally organics has very high cadmium level on their product. I wrote to Optimally organics about that claim and they responded that they are aware of that false claim and their legal team is on to that. So it seemed to me that mineral logic has great product and they even own the fulvic acid deposit and harvest, extracts and manufactures their product but are they making false claims about other companies products or are they real and others are making false claims about their own product...

The other thing is that mineral logic doesn't sell their product on the site and when I emailed them to know where to buy it I got no answer. After second email they had redirected my email to arcadiasupplements.com who wrote me that they handle distribution of mineral logics fulvic acid. So If someone has used arcadiasupplements e-lite fulvic acid, please let me know was it effective.

Hi and thanks for your reply. The fulvic acids product I used that actually worked isn't any of those brands mentioned on this forum. I did include a link to the fulvic acids product that helped me in my original posting, but it did not get posted. If you want to contact me directly at pjsmith2011 at mail dot com, I will let you know.

Regarding using pasteurized milk to make kefir, I would personally not recommend it. Raw cow milk is hard for humans to digest since it was designed to support the growth of baby cattle. And when it is subjected to high heat through pasteurization, the proteins become denatured and the body recognizes them as a toxin rather than a nourishing food. There is a reason dairy products are among the most common dietary allergens.

I would suggest using raw goat milk for making kefir if you can find it since goat milk is much more digestible than cow milk.

However, the company that sells the fulvic acids product I use also has an excellent probiotic product that is made from fermented organic and non-GMO foods rather than fecal matter as some probiotics are made from. It does not require any refrigeration either.

Hope this helps and I wish you success in your wellness journey.

Hi Paul,

Could you post the name of the supplement you took with the fuvic acid? I see a couple with the word "miracle" in the description and would like to try what you used without wasting time and money to locate it.


If regular pasteurized milk is used to make milk kefir (as advised), do you think the bacteria formed in the kefir will kill the bad bacteria in the milk that comes from most cows, as you have posted, or should I use ultra pasteurized instead? Or is milk kefir even safe to drink?

Thank you.

I would like to share my story regarding fulvic acids in hopes that it would be helpful to others. Although I have practiced a natural health oriented lifestyle for over three decades, I still developed a severe chronic skin condition on my hands many years ago. My fingers would become inflamed and itchy, then the skin would crack and either weep or bleed. I had limited motion of my fingers and they would be very painful when bending or being exposed to water. Even eating organic fruit would aggravate this condition. During the worst state of this condition, one of my fingers looked like a badly corroded car battery terminal. I had literally spent thousands of dollars on organic foods, whole food supplementation and natural remedies in an attempt to get rid of this miserable condition but only experienced partial success.

Then in September of 2015 I tried a new fulvic acids product, taking only one-quarter ounce per day. And a little over a month later (before I finished the second bottle), the skin on my hands had been completely healed without any trace of the chronic condition I had suffered with for so many years! I was SO elated! Since I wasn't sure whether the fulvic acids product I was taking was responsible for this result, I did not reorder it after finishing the second bottle just to see what would happen. After several weeks had passed, the symptoms began to return so I placed another order for two more bottles.

Again, the condition totally cleared up after about a month later. Then after finishing the fourth bottle, I decided not to reorder immediately just to see if the condition would return. Several weeks later, the symptoms began to return again. But shortly after taking the fulvic acids product again, the symptoms completely subsided. This proved to me that the fulvic acids product was solely responsible for clearing up this condition and as long as I am on this product, my hands look perfectly healthy. I had previously tried at least four other brands of fulvic acids—including the one that claims to be a 350X concentrate—but NO improvement was ever seen with my dreadful condition. I don't know whether this product worked by detoxifying my body or strengthening my immunity, but however it was accomplished I am just grateful to God that I found this life-changing “miracle in a bottle”. Hopefully, my story will be an inspiration to others. Thank you.

I was so so sick yesterday, and by the evening desperate to feel better. I have Dengue Fever, Encephalitis and Varicella in my CNS, Lungs and Liver. I am on a protocol to eliminate those, so no worries.... The day before I had taken a Tbsp of High Maize Resistant Starch ( my first big dose) and that, for some reason, set the viruses off! I could hardly breathe - so sick and started to write my Will.

I had a 2 year half used bottle of Optimally Organic Fulvic Acid, and in the evening decided to try that, because of a post I read from Ted where he saved someone from a serious viral disease with humic acid powder. Took 12 drops in distilled water, in split doses, two hours apart, and omg! All the viruses abetted, I could breathe, my eyes could open and I felt 100% amazing. Not sure what this poster is saying, but O. Organic literally saved me......

Sleep so well, felt wonderful upon awakening.

I was even following Ted's advice on small dose of lysine every hour - did nothing for me. He says that will help eliminate viruses as it controls blood sugar, cortisol, which is what viruses feed on. Did nothing for me. It was the O Organic that truly did the trick.

Optimally claims their Fulvic is alkaline, but the pH on test sheet shows 1.26 (acidic). In water that has organic material can claim they have Fulvic, but the ancient material comes from humic acid>>then you extract the Fulvic acid. If they are using distilled water for extraction, you can't get an alkaline end product. Be careful with these companies that claim to be the best in the world has been my experience. Do your own due diligence for your own health and safety.

I'm commenting on Siri from NYC post here as I also had a reaction similar to theirs. I also used the same company 350x Fulvic Acid. Was only using a drop and then up to 3 a day, however it wiped me out, headaches, fatigue, wakefulness, and general stomach achiness. I wasn't nauseous, and it seemed to constipate me. I also thought perhaps I had food poisoning. I mistakenly started it at the same time I was taking a strengthening herb mix, as well as a green formula and liver formula ( Exsula), so it;s hard to tell what might have caused it. Stomach still not right 3 days later. Slowly getting better. Will attempt to introduce slowly after symptoms subside.

6/26 update. I gradually increased FA to 2 drops x 3 times a day and this morning took 3 drops. Had no issues until today.

I have fever again, 100.4, severe low back pain and what it feels like cyctitis. My urine is clear though, just burning sensation when pee and the low back pain is really bad. Have chills all over. Bode aches. Never had cystitis before.

Applied essential oils to my back, heat pad and took "no-spa" , drotaverine is another name. It is very safe for spasms, it is given to pregnant women in Eastern Europe. Not sold in the USA, but you may find it in the Easter European shops (in the US).

I want to mention that in the last 5-7 years I had fever only once when I got flu/cold. And it was the first time I had flu/cold in 5-7 years. So getting fever twice in the same month after I started on FA might have something to do with FA effect on my body. Good or bad, will see.

I just started on Fulvic Acid. Purchased on Amazon, Optimally Organic brand 350x concentration. Recommended 4-7 drops 3 times a day, 1 drop diluted in 2oz water. Started 1-3 drops 1-2 times a day. The very second day I experienced more energy, and completed 1.5hr walk instead of normal 0.5 hr. I walk inside my apartment and very slow. Next 2-3 days were uneventful. Following night I suddenly started feeling as if I was coming down with flu, aches all over, pain in my guts, chills. Next morning I was feeling run down, but my guts were sort of OK, just lots of trips to the bathroom, it seemed that I was unloading lots of waste, I did not know I had.I eat very healthy and organic, so my elimination was always regular. By evening I had slight fever, but it was my guts that went crazy as if I had food poisoning-crumps, severe diarrhea, nausea. I don't know what to make out of this, but my guess it is xerx reaction.Unless I got food poisoning all of a sudden. No Fulvic acid today, the diarrhea persists, mostly mucus. Take 1 drop of each essential oil 3 times a day, peppermint, ginger, cardamom, carrot seed and oregano. Take internally in water. Have not slept in 3 days. Will post more later as my experience progresses. My health issues - POTS (dysautonomia), sever dizziness, severe insomnia.

Never use fulvic acid in anything but glass or metal containers. Don't even drink it out of a plastic cup. It is a powerful chelator and will start to break down anything but glass or metal which upon drinking you will take into your body. Do not take with chlorinated water because of chemical reactions creating harmful by products. Do not take in dairy such as milk because it's an acid and it will curdle the milk.

Fulvic Acid does not have a standard for measuring the concentration by chemical testing. The standard is to judge the concentration by comparing the color (colormetric) to a chart, When your color matches up with the chart then you have a relative idea of the concentration. I have been involved with the agricultural side of the 12 molecules that make up the humic or humate complex. I buy a concentrate that is almost black in color that is sold to me as a 3% by weight solution. There is a specific molecular weight to the Fulvic molecule and this is the way I buy material for cropping uses. I can tell you that if the liquid you buy is golden that it has already been cut by probably close to 100:1. Most times I see a product offered that has been cut 150:1 and is more the color of iced tea in the north. At this rate we would use a quart to the acre for growing crops. For human consumption, you can make your own determinations. Thanks for all your contributions, it helps find out what actually does work.

One of the cheapest and most bio-available sources of fulvic acid is Blk water. It can be purchased in most health/grocery stores. It is purified fulvic/humic trace mineral complex + spring water from near Polar Wisconsin. Since it's already in a liquid form, I believe that it's the best source of fulvic/humic acid (Shilajit). The mythology (which always contains truth) is rich and vast concerning the healing potential of this substance. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is at the top of the list as far as healing, detox, and longevity.

Posted by Prioris (Florida, US) on 10/15/2014

What You Need To Know About Buying Fulvic-Humic Acid.

I decided to write a small buying guide for fulvic and humic acid due to the fact that the information is spread all over the place and can be very confusing so will try to condense the info in one post. It makes it a very time consuming subject to truly research. When you're sick, it becomes an obstacle. This doesn't answer all the questions but it will hopefully be a short cut to getting up to speed and starting your journey into using humus for health. I am not an expert, so please do your own due diligence.

I will connote Fulvic Acid as FA and Humic acid as HA.

Here are the key considerations in buying FA/HA:

1) Labeling
2) Heavy metals
3) Strength, Quantity and Cost
4) Other


The labeling is definitely one of the biggest barriers to comparing products. Some tests measure the gross amount of HA and FA while others can give separate figures for both which the International Humic Substance Society promotes. Many refuse to label due to lack of an agreed upon standard. I do think this is a cop out.

Some labeling may be effected by the state law in a few states. I think most people want to know the proportion of HA and FA in a product.


"There is a lack of universal standards for measuring and labeling so consumer has another barrier to overcome. Numbers quoted by products may be like comparing apples to oranges."


"No matter what method is used the fact remains that until a single test is made standard and used by all registration agencies the confusion will continue through the marketplace. "

Heavy Metals

Any formulation which contains minerals could possibly have heavy metals. Since HA/FA gives the body the ability to absorb nutrients including minerals, heavy metals is a concern especially of one intends to take it for the long term. There are reports of high amount of lead, aluminum, mercury and arsenic in some brands.

FA/HA should not be taken in raw or unprocessed form since it may contain fungus growth.

I have found that the well known brands tend to minimize or remove the toxic metals. I can't vouch for the testing labs they use. The problem with so many products is that you have to dig for even this info. If your calculating the amount from numbers you need to know the amount of heavy metal in a daily serving.


Here is a contrarian view of the heavy metal issue.


I think most people will opt to not go there because it is the more unknown and they need more effort to do due diligence. I haven't come across any beneficial types of aluminum but I haven't researched the subject enough to confirm that.

It isn't whether it has aluminum or lead in it that matters but the daily amount you would consume. In a few brands I found that have aluminum, they keep it to 1/10th the average daily amount that a person gets in their food. One of those brands was a purified fertilizer brand.

Strength, Quantity and Cost

Cost is a product of strength and quantity.

The current labeling issues I discussed above makes it very difficult to clearly compare brands.

For liquid concentrated solutions, there is a good write up here


but another brand will say http://www.supremefulvic.com/faq.php#ques05

Again I think claiming "no universal standard" is a cop out. They could use the IHSS anointed test and give some type of info. They could use other tests, specify which test they used. I think they have to make some type of effort to give some data even if not perfect.

There are liquid, powder and extracts. There are varying degrees of humid and fulvic. I am still in my infancy in understanding this myself but I will leave you to decide. Maybe someone can chime in with another perspective on this issue.


Some people may want to formulate their own mixture so flecibility may be important. Obtaining more pure humus may be the way they want to go. Ted has advocated a 70/30 fulvic/humic blend ratio.

When To Take

As far as when you take it, it depends if your taking medications and what you are eating. If you know the food your eating is very healthy meaning it has minimal contaminants - such as pesticides, chemicals, not organic etc. - then taking the fulvic acid with meals should be very beneficial. Otherwise probably take it 1/2 hour before eating or 2 hours after eating. If using medications, take 2 hours apart.

One major caveat is - Do not use with chlorinated water. Filtered water should be ok. Chlorine interacts with it in a negative way.

Filtered water should be ok. Chlorine interacts with it in a negative way.


I don't endorse any product but just point out the more well known ones out there. Shilajit Shilajit is used in Ayurvedic medicine. Reported to contain at least 85 minerals in ionic form, as well as triterpenes, humic acid and fulvic acid. Shilajit should not be taken in raw or unprocessed form since it may contain fungus growth. Not all Shilajit is created equal due to heavy metals and contaminants.

Life Extension uses Primavie brand in it's formulations. This seems to be at least one of the gold standard brand for purity. It is used in research studies. WuJinSan WuJinSan is a purified fulvic Acid without the minerals. This in essence is the active ingredient. This should be one of the cleanest products.

Garden store variety HA/FA The advantage of Garden store variety is low cost. The supposed disadvantage is heavy metals. Ted advocates this.

In such a blend, Ted recommends adding a tspn or two of ACV or ordinary vinegar to the HA/FA mixture, thus acidifying the mixture, which will therefore act to precipitate out and remove the Humic acid component, leaving just the more useful and beneficial Fulvic acid in solution. Humifulvate Humet-R This is peat derived humate is more dominated by humic acid. It wasn't easy to find heavy metal content but in long pdf paper buried deeply, I concluded it was low. TeraVita SP-90 Humic Acid 100% Soluble Powder is 90% or more humic acid. This is advertised as fertilizer. It says it has 1% aluminum but doing the calculation based on daily dose of 1 oz, it is very low amount. The reason why one may want to use this is because humic acid won't be absorbed by body but stay in the colon.

You also have products by companies in referenced links above.

Some Addition info

I have seen it repeated that Fulvic acid is derived from Humic Acid. That is incorrect. Fulvic Acid is derived from Humus as seen below. It is a portion of the Humus Substances.

Organic soil matter (decaying non living matter) -> Humus (Substances) Humus is well rotted and will unlikely break down further. A humus layer can be 40 million years old. A rule of thumb about the quality: the older the better.

  • Humus Substances -> Humic Acids (soluble at high ph) (Yellow)
  • Humus Substances -> Fulvic Acids (soluble at any PH) (Black)
  • Humus Substances -> Humin (insoluble at any PH)(Black) http://www.humintech.com/pdf/humicfulvicacids.pdf
  • Humic & Fulvic acids contents of various materials Natural Sources Humic Acids % Fulvic Acids % Leonardite/Humate 40 85 Black Peat 10 40 Sapropel Peat 10 20 Brown Coal 10 30

Fulvic Acid is generally considered the active ingredient. This does not mean that humic acid us not an active ingredient also. Fulvic acid mainly transports particles, while humic acid mainly binds particles. They both have useful medicinal functions.

Humic acid is thought to support the removal of heavy metals from the body by acting as a chelator. It may be possible for the body to accumulate metals within the stomach, and chelators are thought to help remove these metals from the stomach by latching on the metals within the stomach and supporting their removal from the body.

I notice that WuJinSan doesn't list any information regarding concentration. It's hard to tell what amount one is actually getting. I think the mother earth labs gives much more bang for the dollar. I can't give you any help regarding where to find it in Australia.

I saw that u had vivid dreams I did too. But there is a reason for that. Many toxins limited our pineal glad our psychic gland. Flouride is put into everything and builds calcium in the pineal glad. When taking fulvic it pulls it out. Im not sure what other symptoms u had. But feeling like u have a cold is expected at first till ur body flushes all the toxins out.

I'm looking for humic / Fulvic supplement. I want it for my health, tired all the time (but I do have sleep apnea, getting a cpap machine soon)

I also want it for correcting my hormone profile, my testosterone is low. It is 500ng/dl. Which is half what it was when I was in my 30's. I am 57 yrs old now. I just started taking the Borax 1/4tsp per day.

I live on the west coast, so I need something from the US, so the shipping doesn't kill me. Thank You.

Humic acid, is rapidly being recognized as one of the key elements in many scientific breakthroughs of the 21st century. It is one of the most crucial factors in the reversal and prevention of disease, as well as the maintenance of good health.

I have bought a product called Humet-R (humic acid plus minerals) from a company called Health Leads. Judging from the quality of their own-brand supplements I would judge them to be a very reliable source. http://www.healthleadsuk.com/search.html

I would like to know how important it is for the fulvic acid to be a glass container. I purchased from a U.S. Company, but it came in a heavy plastic bottle. Also, what is the usual amount to take in 8 oz. of non-chlorinated water? (I always start with a small doses to avoid any allergic reaction). Please email me with this info asap: rustic23 (at) hotmail [dot] com. Thanks sooo much!

Hi Loren... Humic acid is acid soluble whereas fulvic acid is not. It is really the fulvic acid that is most useful for the body. Humic acid is also useful for plants because the HA component can absorb many times its own weight in water -- and this is useful for plants needing water. Not so essential in humans because we have our own water regulation mechanisms. Fulvic acid is the one that has all the beneficial properties.

So, to just get only the fulvic acid component, Ted also recommends adding a tspn or two of ACV or ordinary vinegar to the HA/FA mixture, thus acidifying the mixture, which will therefore act to precipitate out and remove the Humic acid component, leaving just the more useful and beneficial Fulvic acid in solution.

Hi Lauren... I use humic/fulvic acid on a weekly basis. I also just buy it from the garden center as granules or powder because its way cheaper than buying the organic or edible "standardized" forms.

To make the drink I just add a small amount of Humic Acid to water so that the water has a light brown see-through appearance(not black). I also always add a small amount of sodium bicarbonate to make the water alkaline. Then I just add a few drops of lugols iodine or a few drops of 10% sodium thiosulphate to remove any heavy metals and bad halogens and then just drink it like that.

Humic acid is just 75 million year old plant humus that has been broken down by enzymes and has also had high thermodynamic pressure applied to it because it is found compacted in rock strata.

Humic Acid makes body metabolism much more efficient, it is a wonderful detoxer of poisons and also has strong anti-viral action.

Hey EC... I so badly want to try fulvic acid after reading so much good reviews however, I am kinda worried cause why would we want to put stuff that contains bromine, fllouride, cadimum etc in our body when we hear how harmful substances are to humans? Just a thought..someone/anyone any explanation. Like I said I would really love to try this. Thank you guys...

Is Fulvic acid something that will aid those issues? I also need help with dosage, etc. from someone with a good history using it. And can it be toxic at all? thanks so much!

Hello my name is Dannelle and I am looking to do additional research on fulvic acid. In searching via Internet I have found multiple times an allusion to further benefits of fulvic acid beyond physical regeneration. I have been using from a reputable source, and currently experiencing herx symptoms, and I am also having vivid/lucid dreams. I am looking for guidance to find resources to learn more about the propertities of fulvic acid in this regard, perhaps emotional and spiritual, that cannot be shared in a public forum. I thank you in advance. Sincerely, Dannelle

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I live in Istanbul - Turkey and it's very difficult to find fulvic acid or pure Humic acid here. However, we have plenty of Leonardite, which is supposed to contain Humic acid. Has anyone tried this?

In addition, if I use the raw solid form of this substance, how should prepare the liquid form (weight per volume )?

Many thanks in advance for your answer. Emre

Fulvic Acid Side Effects
Posted by Lisa (Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa) on 07/11/2012

Hi John, Your reaction is interesting because fulvic acid is known to be a powerful detoxifier of herbicides, pesticides and other poisons including radioactive elements. Your reaction could actually have been one of rapid detoxification if any of these were in your system. Not sure how much you took but, maybe back off and slowly introduce it. I personally, take shilajit daily from an excellent source. Hope this information helps you. Lisa
