You have helped me alot with my colitis and mercury issues. Currently, I have been in a little flare so many thing are upseting my stomach or making my symptoms act up. Anyways, I finally got some 100% pure humic acid powder. Now, my question is, when I mix this it is completely black but it does have a taste to it. This is not suppose to have a taste, correct? It's kind of a chalky earthy taste.. I'm getting worried that this may not be pure even though the company has said it's 100% pure... I'm really not sure what to do? Any ideas? Thanks!
Remember, carbon will hold 4x its weight in liquid, so this is why farmers should use this to build up the organic matter in soil to help it "hold" the fertilizers they use too much of. I use a sugar-backed fertilizer with great results, and also a soil bacteria (aerobic for oxygen) and this drives down the anerobic bacteria into the soil. The oxygen then feeds off the non-oxygen and you have just started a self-perpetuating eco-system in the soil that will grow very healthy foods.
Recently, my mom bought some oranges and when I offered to make some fresh juice for her, she declined, saying that it makes her asthma act up almost immediately. I'm not sure why that is. So out of curiosity, I added a few drops of fulvic acid into the juice and it started fizzing. She drank it after that and we waited for a while to see if her asthma would act up. It never did! I don't know what the fulvic acid neutralized in the juice but it sure worked!
orange juice has a capacity to expel mucus but when the body system is weak enough to expel so the patient may suffer the healing crisis which the patient believes a negative but in reality it is a positive healing. So Fulvic role is to help the juice get more effective and the body to handle the healing crisis. so the patient in general will get ease.
Humic acid and fulvic acid are substances that Ted values highly.
My question is of what ingredients are they composed and how sanitary is the production? I have never heard of them before and like to know these things. Thank you
Regarding fulvic/humic acids: the general subject of mineral deficiencies are discussed by Dr. Joel Wallach in his book Rare Earths, Forbidden Cures.This was printed many years ago prior to the 'invasion' of colloidal mineral products in the marketplace.Basically the author states that the world has become very depleted of minerals due to many reasons from erosion to poor farming practice.The U.S. for example is approx 85% deficient! Austrailia is approx 57%, etc. I don't know how these studies were tested. The point being that we are severely lacking in bio-available minerals. I have known some that drink clay, or granite dust water,(Hunzas & others),etc. Rudolf Steiner in the early century used granite dust as a soil amendment with amazing results.Another great book titled 'Secrets of the Soil' avail used on Amazon is a good read & I think the author is Christopher Bird. Someone mentioned salt as a cheap alternative & it is important to mention that real salt is air/sun dried & without chemical additives or heavy processing. Grinding of the salt causes nickel to be present in the end product if the mfgr uses such composite metals for grinding.Most 'popular' sea salts are not necessarily quality. Search the net for info & sources. Dr. David Brownstein has written a great book on salt & it is avail used on Amazon.He has researched the topic for many years & recommends in his practice. I am not connected with any of the sources mentioned. The only one mentioned who has a mineral product is Dr. Joel Wallach & this is many years after the book was written due to people asking for sources.The person on EC who recommended wu jin san is most likely selling or associated with it as it has a sales tone & the person is from the same source area in Ore. My chinese sister-in-law is a OMD and never heard of it,not that she has heard of everything. The label states "fulvic acid in PURE rainwater from the sea".Rainwater "from the sea" sounds odd to me as I cannot imagine how the rain & sea waters are differentiated.Suffice to say there are many claims in the mineral marketplace, so buyer beware.Most of the colloidal sources in the U.S. are in Utah & share the same mining area with private labeling. I used to sell colloidals many years ago & the markup is great.One quart costs about $5-$6.00, wholesales for $12.00 & retails for up to $40.00! Grossly speaking your are getting mined decomposed vegetation that is placed in an acid bath & sold. Of course there are other steps in the process, but this is simplified.We can't eat dirt because we are not plants, so we eat the plants.Make sense? I don't know how we can absorb minerals from clay unless it is taken with an acid, but clay is primarily taken for detox because like charcoal it is highly absorbant of toxins & non-toxins such as minerals, flora, etc. which need to be replenished. If one wants a good cheap magnesium supplement, soak the feet or body in epsom salts. Magnesium is best absorbed through the skin.A Dr. Sircus has plenty of free info on the subject of transdermal magnesium application. Thank you EC for this forum. Hugs!
I am always hesitant to buy products made in China due to little or no regulations, also greatly polluted areas.
I found a company: Nano Health Solutions, 8140 Mayfield Road, Chesterland, Ohio 44026FA comes apparently from the New Mexico region. Have you ever heard of or acquired any products?
Thank you for your great detailed info. Much appreciated.
Can someone please advise me on how safe is it to use shilajit everyday? It is one of the ingredients in a green food powder I am considering to take and I do not know much about shilajit. Is it an herb that is suggested to be used for a period of time only? I think I read somewhere that in texts it has been suggested for use for one year at the most.
(Thousand Oaks, Ca, Usa)
Hi Jen, Shilajit is completely safe and is highly revered in Aryuvedic medicine. It helps to re-mineralize the body and a host of many other benefits. It is to some, the ideal fulvic acid. It is safe to use it everyday and is very good for you. You can find lots of detailed information about it online. It is really coming to the forefront in the alternative medicine world.
Still, as with all things, I like to give my body a rest after a week or two of anything. So, for instance, if I am taking herbs, I'll go for a full week or maybe even two and then stop for a day or two before I return. That is a protocol embraced by many. That way the body does not become completely dependent upon something to stay healthy. Hope this helps you. Lisa
(Kg Cham, Cambodia)
It has been many years ago when I got to know about shilajit from an ayurvedic practitioner friend. Very good indeed but it was a purified form and coloured like milk. Two years ago, he gave me the unpurified type which is dark reddish brown in colour and smelled urine which turned me off. Can someone who might be familiar with fulvic acid tell me if the urine smell is normal? Thank you.
Fulvic Acid is yellow in color, however it shouldn't have any taste whatsover. If it does, then most likely it is not pure and chemicals have been added. Pure Humic is Black in Color and should also be tasteless if its pure. There's a company Regeneration USA that sells Humic & Fulvic Minerals which are I believe the purest available and aid in dealing with a host of issues from acid reflux, digestion problems, it also re-mineralizes the body and assits in removing toxins from the body. Hope this helps
Re: silajit, though it may be harmless in its pure form, at least one Indian manufacturer on the UK market has been done because their product was full of added heavy metals. Six months later: product still being quietly sold on the UK market via various websites. It's one of those things I'd love to try if I could find a guaranteed pure source for it, but as things stand, I'm very wary - it may just make things worse.
I've found fulvic acid products a bit too strong in the past, though I seem to tolerate them better now. One alternative is moor mud, dug out of an Austrian bog and pasteurised. Absolutely delicious, but criminally expensive, at least in the quantities that I am drinking it. The moor mud sold for baths is a quarter of the price, but I have to figure out how to replicate the effects of pasteurisation without just boiling it to death (part of the goodness of the moor mud is in the bacteria, so I'm reluctant to kill the lot) - any bright ideas on this front?
could someone please tell me if fulvic and humic acid are the same? i am very confused.which is for the phneumatic flu? is liquid as good as powder? thank you
EC: Fulvic acid redirects to humic acid on Wikipedia...
"It is important to note, however, that no sharp divisions exist between humic acids, fulvic acids and humins. They are all part of an extremely heterogeneous supramolecular system and the differences between the subdivisions are due to variations in acidity, degree of hydrophobicity (content of aromatic and long-chain alkyl molecules) and entropy-driven self-associations of molecules."
Fulvic acid fertilizer: Contrary to what some believe, I have been using humic/fulvic acids in my fertilizer program since 1994. I balance the soil with the help of these fine products to help Mother Nature build a healthy soil> Then I have a healthy crop, and Bovines eat it and they become healthy etc.
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 got this link: http://www.greenagrosource.com/the-benefits-of-humic-acid.html
I use humic acid in the soil. It is "hydrogen" or digestor of the soil. If the digestor is weak or missing, what do you suppose will happen to all that fertilizer that American Ag producers use? And could that be one reason that there is Nitrates in our water? Please read articles from The Albreght Papers (google search ) and you will learn just like this wonderful place @ Earth Clinic
I am 35years old, living in Vietnam. As you know, VN is an agriculture country (80% of population) and there are many peat-area. I am looking for technology, equipments that can help me to extract humic acid from peat - this is a good target in business and support my peasants in VN for better life. Please kindly contact me with my above email address. I do hope to be advised from you how to extract humic acid. Thank you in advance.
The amount of humic acid in peats are so small you cannot do it. Most humic acids and fulvic acid are extracted from near ancient prehistoric deposits on top of coal. In coal mining they resemble a very low grade for heating purposes only, bituminous coal deposits.
However, humic acid are softer than bituminous coal deposits for which they are extracted with humic acid. You cannot do it from extracting from peats, it takes many tons of peat just to get only a handful of fulvic acid or humic acid. The best way to make money from fulvic acid is to mix them into fertilizer to improve the uptake of minerals by the plant.
It causes fertilizer chemical to be biologically available. To date there is no fertilizer chemicals
using this process, but it works well.

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!
I am so glad to hear that you are well and have recovered. I am suffering from what I think is chronic fatigue. Please will you share the name and brand of the fulvic mineral product you used to restore your health. I would really appreciate this as I am absolutely at breaking point.
Did you ever get a reply about the fulvic acid source from Proud Tulsan (Tulsa, Ok, Usa) on 01/17/2018? Was trying to decide if it was worth the effort to also ask him for his source.
Thanks for the great article in earth clinic. Can you tell us the brand name of the Fulvic Acid.? Thank you.
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
Hi Regina, I use Optimally Organic Fulvic Acid. I have had no problems with it and actually think it is helping me. It turns the distilled water golden color. I use 1-3 drops 2 X day in a qt. mason jar of water.
Hope that is helpful.
About two years ago I tried a humic supplement (black water) and the wide spectrum of benefits that I observed was nothing short of phenomenal! Everything from remission of long-term sleep disorders, alleviation of severe, long-term depression, tobacco cravings virtually eliminated, physical and mental energy in abundance ... it was unforgettable!!!
Mind you, this was a HUMIC substance, and it was completely black. When you would add it to your water, it would mushroom-cloud (like chlorophyl does) and turn it completely black. This is a product that is no longer being made, so perhaps I will have permission to list the brand? It was by Dr. Lamar's products, they stopped making it over 2 years ago.
Alot of people talk alot about how great fulvic acid is, and it really is good, but fulvates are derivatives of humates, and in my experience, humic supplements are vastly superior. I NEVER responded like that to ANY one supplement I had ever taken in my life, and I've been popping supplements and cures for almost 30 years!
Humic substances are not given the fanfare that they rightfully deserve (at least not outside the gardening community). Instead most companies produce fulvic substances. I highly reccommend trying a black water HUMIC supplement, and it should indeed change your water black, not brown or gold like the fulvates do. There are several companies that produce a true HUMIC product, just do a bit of Scroogling and you should find them. Some of them offer fulvic AND humic acids in seperate bottles. This is a great idea. Feel free to write me with any thoughts, questions or comments! Needless to say I am a bonafide believer in the black water humics!

Excellent feedback. Offering here to be a helpful resource, with this in mind had you considered an Ayurvedic substance: shilajit ?
I ran across fulvic acid quite by accident and started using it as a preventative supplement for various conditions. I noticed that I had more energy, better concentration and a general sense of better health but found another interesting effect. Fulvic acid is a chelator that helps detox the body. I think it took the nicotine and other pollutants from smoking out of my body so that I no longer had the strong cravings. In fact, sometimes I found the cigarettes distasteful so I just quit. The one problem I had with quitting was the physiological reaction of my lungs still wanting that feeling of being filled by the smoke. I solved that just by inhaling and exhaling as if I was smoking without the smoke and it reduced those cravings. I've been off cigarettes for two weeks now. As Samuel Clements aka Mark Twain said, quiting smoking is easy, I've done it hundreds of times. Well so have I. I have a feeling though, this time will be my last time quitting. I just am not having the cravings I had the other hundreds of times I tried quitting and it's just been so darned easy. If this isn't detoxing, I don't know what is.
I use a concentrated form of fulic, 350 times in liquid form. I add 12 drops to to juice or tea. It seems to react to milk so don't use that. Also, as it is a chelator it's highly reactive so don't buy it in any kind of plastic container, only glass. Plastic is also now found to contain a chemical that might contribute to erectile disfunction so stay away from it as much as possible. I won't even use a plastic cup with fulvic acid because of how reactive it is.
EarthClinic won't let us post specific products but maybe they'll let these key words through so you can find it on your own if you do a search. Fulvic Acid, Optimally, Organic. If they let this through then you'll find a supplier that provides several reports on the site that tells of the many other benefits of fulvic acid and one that offers the best value I've found so far in a quality product in a glass container.

Hi Scott from Pen Argyl, Pa.
I don't know if you are aware, but the brand you are using isn't just fulvic acid, it's ionic minerals in a fulvic acid base. Not that you may care, just to let you know. I also bought this brand first, then I realized what it was, so then I bought the other from bioag which is just fulvic acid, and am currently using both. The kind you have in the morning and the other in the evening.
May I ask how old you are, and how long have you been using it? Also, what conditions are you using it for? It is wonderful stuff isn't it, Peace, Rena.
(Manhattan, New York)
EC, thanks for not printing brand names. Allowing so would bias the information. Still, I suspect the rare post is a clever spam.
EC: Actually, recently we mentioned that we would allow name brands on fulvic acid because a few of our regular readers keep requesting it! However if it looks like it's out of control, we'll go back and delete the names. We deleted a name from a post a few months ago after one fulvic acid company (a competitor) complained!
For years I've suffered severe neck and back pain, diagnosed as fybromyalgia. 7 days on fulvic acid has relieved 90% of the pain! I haven't felt this good in years! I've gained vitality, clarity, hope and concentration. I can't recommend it enough.

Hi George450 from Cerritos, Ca.
I am currently taking fulvic acid. Like you, I had no guidance in which one is the best to take. I am only on week 2, way to soon to report anything. I am planning on reporting after 3 months use.
My health complaint at this time is bursitis in my left shoulder, which runs all the way down past my left elbow. For some reason I have very weak tendons. About 7 years ago, I had tennis elbow in my right arm, and it took about 5 years for it to completely recover. I am trying to speed up the progress using fulvic acid, because like most health issues I know it is due to some kind of deficiency.
I am a long time Earth Clinic reader, a big fan of this site. I will report my results, good or bad, but only in due time, unless of course the ailment recovers before hand. Peace, Rena.
(Mineral Bluff, Georgia, Usa)
It's been 3 months for my experiment with Fulvic Acid, as promised here is my report on my experience. First a brief history for why I chose fulvic acid. I had another bought of tendonitis, this time in my left shoulder, left elbow, left wrist. At first it wasn't that bad, not until my co-worker and I were in the warehouse where I work, and a rake handle knocked a box above our head off the shelf above us. Out of reflex action, I through my left arm up to keep the box from falling on our heads. I heard and felt a pop, and then I almost passed out from the pain. I had to stand there for a few minutes holding my arm, taking deep breaths and trying not to black out, that's how bad it was.
I heard about fulvic acid speeding the recovery of many ailments, tendonitis included, so I thought I would give it a go, I had nothing to loose, and my left arm was now practically useless. I had trouble getting dressed, couldn't raise my arm even high enough to shave, couldn't even put my hand on my hips, it just dangled there. I am happy to report that it is now nearly recovered, and I am shocked how far it has come in such a short amount of time. I can now do anything with it that I need to without noticing any pain. I still need to rebuild strength in it for lack of use all these months, but that should come in time. The only time I do feel a slight twinge of pain is when I reach back to undo my bra, but I feel even that is only slight, and in a short amount of time I will not feel that anymore either.
Other pluses about taking fulvic acid was that my left eyebrow grew back in. For years I've had a bald spot about 1/4 inch on my left eyebrow, that I just penciled in, I have hair there now, blows my mind. My eyelashes are longer too. I have so much hair on my head, that I can't tell if it is fuller or not (sorry), this would be worth a shot for those who have thinning hair and could afford to test fulvic acid for this condition, might take longer than 3 months to test though. Toe nail fungus is gone. Although I didn't have it very bad, just a little on 2 toes on my right foot, but it is gone now. Three black heads I have on my face, the smallest one is gone, and the 2 larger ones are much smaller now. All these little pluses tell me I am healing from the inside out.
Other supplements I took on a daily bases with weekends off (I always rest my body of any supplements on weekends). These I took before tendonitis.
1.)Greens drink )My multi vitamin/mineral.)
2.)Vitamin E (to keep from having hot flashes)
3.)Cod liver oil (twice a week)
5.)Vitamin D3 (twice a week)
6.)Extra virgin coconut oil
When I got the tendonitis, I still took all the above, but took some additional sups as well, all fresh herbs I cap myself. All for inflamation and pain reasons.
1.)Turmeric with fresh grated black pepper
2.)Ginger root powder
3.)Yucca root powder.
Now this is the part you are going to hate, because I can't tell if one is better than the other, but I took 2 different kinds of fulvic acid. In the morning mixed in my greens drink, I took the fulvic acid minerals 300X strength 12 drops from optimally organic. In the evening I took one ounce in 8 ounces of water of the Wu Jin San Fulvic acid from Bioag.
The fulvic acid from Optimally Organic was bitter that's why I hid the taste in my greens drink, but the Wu Jin San has no taste at all, so I could take that in water.
Just a few more things I want to add before I close is the amount of energy I had. It did not seem to matter if I had 2 hours sleep or 9 hours sleep, I always had the energy to make it through the day. I also found myself happier, laughing so much more, I just feel better all way around. I still get my monthly, and it has been steady for these 3 months. Exactly 31 days cycle, like I did when I was young. This past year and a half, my period became irregular, sometimes it would come every 3 weeks, sometimes I would miss a month, never knew when it would hit, but these 3 months have been right on Q. I hope I covered everything, and was clear enough for everyone. Writing is not my best feature, Peace, Rena.

Thank you for your detailed post from 3/6/2010, I would like to obtain information from you regarding purchasing the fulvic acid you were using, Can you please send me a private email and let me know where you buy your fulvic acid? I would really love to know. Thank in you advance Ronit

Rena, If you're still involved with this process I'd love to hear from you and the direction things have gone for you with Fulvic Acid. I was curious about your using Bioag's Wujinsan vs. Optimally Organics products and what your results were. Also is it a problem that the Wujinsan comes in a plastic bottle? Any and all information you might have to share if greatly appreciated, I'm just embarking on the dirt eating/drinking pathway! Thanks! Caswelldoug(at)hotmail.com
Fulvic and Humic Acid: This stuff is abosolutely the most amazing natural cure i've tried yet. I have some kind of hormone or thyroid condition and the doctors were never able to find anything wrong with me. It's caused all kinds of problems. Irregular periods, forgetfullness, weight gain, dry cracked feet, no energy, hair loss, dry brittle hair etc. I have taken humic and fulvic acid for 18 days and have so much energy (like drinking 5 cups of coffee) Also I can finally remember things. It was so bad I would forget what I was talking about in a conversation. I have stopped losing so much hair and am losing weight. We will have to see if if helps the irregular periods and cracked feet. But thing stuff is absolutely amaging. I got it from _____. Contains 72 minerals and vit c, a and e.

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 humid 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.
Where to Buy Info
Dear Members, Best source of Fulvic/ Humic acid is Leonardite based. And this is in colour of dark brown to black and acitic Ph 2 to 3. This should used with non-chlorinated water and should be free from any heavy metals and becteria before use.
