How To Maximize Your Pet’s Immune System with Fulvic/Humic Acids
What is FULVIC ACID (Humic Extract)? Humic acid/extract can be extracted from any material containing well-decomposed organic matter – soil, coal, composts, etc. Extraction is by way of treatment of these materials with a solution of sodium hydroxide. This dissolves much of the organic matter present. If we then take this solution and add enough acid to drop its pH to about 2, organic material will begin to flocculate and can be separated from the liquid portion. The flocculated material is humic acid. What remains in solution is fulvic acid. Soil extract materials, particularly the class of substances known collectively as “Humus,” “humics,” “humic Acid(s),” or “humates,” have been widely used in a number of applications for many years. The “powers” of Humic Acid Fulvic acid (Humic acid)consists of an immense arsenal and array of naturally occuring phytochemicals, biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, free-radical scavengers, super oxide dismutases, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, antibiotics, antivirals, and antifungals. It is known to greatly enhance the bioavailability of important trace minerals and regenerate and prolong the residence time of essential nutrients in the cells as well as modify the damage or toxic compounds such as heavy metals and free radicals. It restores electrical balance to damaged cells, neutralizes toxins and can eliminate food poisoning within minutes. To the science of living cells, Humic acids are vital in bringing substantial amounts of nutrients and minerals into water solution and delivering their living energies to the living cells Ancient cultures such as the Chinese discovered the powers of humic acid found in soil as did the peoples of India, Mexico and the American South. In vitro and animal studies have been conducted evaluating the anti-viral properties of humic acid against specific viruses such as Hepatitis A, B, and C, herpes, influenza, hemorrhagic fever (Ebola-like), SARS, and West Nile. These studies indicate that humic acid can help support the body’s natural ability to prevent these viruses from replicating and spreading.* However, over time, heavy metals and pesticides polluted our soil, making it essential to purify these humic acid extracts before they can be ingested. Plus, humic acid needs to be taken in a highly concentrated amounts to be useful Farmers have known long ago feeding humic acid literally cures cows of mastitis, makes manure odorless, makes animals more docile, helps pigs, chickens, etc. be productive and reduce the need for antibiotics. Due to its antibiotic, antiviral properties, the animals seem to recover quicker when ill.* Humic substances are nature’s most powerful antiviral. New studies continue to show virus – cancer connection The relationship of viruses to cancer is not too surprising, considering the mounting evidence that shows that there is a missing link in our food chain that is allowing viruses to run rampant in their attack on humans, animals, and even our food crops. What may surprise you most is that drug companies have sponsored extensive secret studies for the purpose of profiting from this dire situation, when in fact inexpensive and effective natural solutions exist. Many medical studies show that humic substances, especially humic acids, have the power to protect against cancer AND the related cancer causing viruses. Studies often show reversal of deadly cancers and tumors using special humic substance therapies.

*One quick note, if you put too much humic acid (granules) more than 0.5% w/w in your dog’s food, some may get diarrhea for the first 1-2 days – do not be alarmed, this usually has to do with detoxification. But after that the stools should become normal.
Vital HF™is a patented formula of rich humic extracts which work as a virus inhibitor by surrounding virus cells and preventing them from binding to healthy cells,* a process called viral fusion inhibition. Virus cells have “sticky spots” that enable them to attach to host cells. The Vital HF™ molecule specifically prevents this by covering up these sticky spots on the virus. Once this binding process is inhibited, the virus cannot replicate and spread, and the body’s own immune system is able to eradicate or reduce the remaining virus cells. In laboratory studies, no side effects have been detected, nor have interactions with medications been identified.* *While this product is currently being sold for humans it is being used for pets with wonderful results!

*A consultation is highly recommended before any preventative program or treatment is started. A consultation includes a personalized diet and holistic program suggestions that are custom-tailored to your own dog’s individual and personal needs. While I will continue to provide educational articles and information for you, most of these are general in nature. Therefore, I encourage you talk to your “Holistic” Veterinarian” and/or set up an appointment with me to tailor a program specifically for your pet’s needs. This is particularly imperative in pets with complicated health issues, or if you’ve done a lot of outside reading and have conflicting information.
