What is the difference between humic and fulvic
Leaf matter and other vegetation on the
floors of ancient forests broke down and eventually,
over eons of geological time, became a friable
substance that's referred to as "humic ore."
Along with humic minerals, this ore contains a
precursor of fulvic acid. When you mix the humates
with an alkaline water (around 10.5 pH), the minerals
and fulvic molecules go into colloidal solution.
This very dark brew of pure minerals and fulvic
molecules is called "humic acid," but
a better term would be "humic minerals,"
because the humic mineral solution is actually
alkaline. However, if you acidify this humic solution
(down to approximately 4.5 pH), a chemical reaction
takes place where the dark humates drop out or
precipitate, and what's left is the pure golden
liquid we call fulvic acid. The moral is, all
humic minerals contain fulvic acid, but fulvic
acid does not contain humates. Fulvic acid is
humic minerals with the humates removed.
companies claim they add fulvic acid to their
humic minerals, others say not to do this. What
is the truth behind these claims?
You would not add fulvic acid to humic minerals
because then the solution would separate. You
can shake it, but it will not be stable, and the
settled humates will become "clay-ey"
and indigestible. That's how fulvic acid is made
(see above), by adding acid (any kind, even fulvic)
to humic minerals. Those who claim that their
product contains humic and also fulvic acid are
simply trying to get as many "buzzwords"
as possible into their advertising. There is no
such thing as a humic mineral solution that is
not mostly fulvic acid!
Some people claim
that humic acid can contain mold and bacteria?
Is this true?
Laboratory tests on humic minerals and
fulvic acid have shown that they have powerful
bacteriocidal, virucidal, and antifungal properties!
Translation: This stuff kills pathological organisms!
Our humic has been lab tested several times and
nobody has ever been able to find any bacteria
or mold in it. In fact, the scientist who supervises
that part of our manufacturing process (and who
has been working with humic and fulvic acid for
more than 20 years!) has actually tried to culture
mold in humic acid, but even in the laboratory
on purpose he hasn't been able to do that. In
fact, he is talking to us about marketing a spectrum
of humic extract for use in water purification!
So what about all those persistent rumors going
around the web? They all seem to have been started
by a couple folks who were trying to "corner
the market" with a different product.
you have the ZeoHeal label for directions and
Yes. Here is the
latest ZeoHeal label for 2011:
I take BIONAID™ and
SUGGESTED USE (BIONAID™):
Take one teaspoon once or twice daily
or mix 4oz (half of a bottle) in 1 gal of pure,
natural drinking water and drink 2oz to 8oz per
day - a general, daily maintenance supplementation.
If you are feeling ill suddenly, double or triple
this amount. If you are feeling severely ill suddenly
or poisoned by a vaccine, call a medical professional
immediately and consume up to an entire bottle
immediately, undiluted, and drink at least 24
ounces of pure, natural water to flush out the
toxins soon afterwards. It you have had a long-term
illness, confer with a medical professional and
start out with the general, daily maintenance
supplementation and double the supplementation
every three days, depending on how you are able
to tolerate the detox symptoms, if any, until
you are taking the product every two hours during
the day until the sypmtoms are gone. If using
both BIONAID™ and ZeoHeal, alternate the
products using Bionaid first, then ZeoHeal an
hour later, and then Bionaid again an hour later,
etc., repeating this process during waking hours
until ill symptoms are gone. See a doctor for
any medical concerns. These statements have not
been evaluated by the FDA.
Take 1/2 teaspoon 3 times
daily, undiluted or with 4oz of pure, natural
drinking water - a general, daily maintenance
supplementation. If you are feeling ill suddenly,
double or triple this amount. If you are feeling
severely ill suddenly or poisoned by a vaccine,
call a medical professional immediately and consume
up to an entire bottle immediately, undiluted,
and drink at least 24 ounces of pure, natural
water to flush out the toxins soon afterwards.
It you have had a long-term illness, confer with
a medical professional and start out with the
general, daily maintenance supplementation and
double the supplementation every three days, depending
on how you are able to tolerate the detox symptoms,
if any, until you are taking the product every
two hours during the day until the sypmtoms are
gone. See a doctor for any medical concerns. These
statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
SYMPTOMS AND SUGGESTED USE FOR BIONAID™
Occasionally, UPCOSH products
can be so effective that the immune system can
not handle the rapid self-destruction of harmful
microorganisms that cannot thrive in a body with
clean, highly oxygenated water, especially when
ozone (O3) is in the water. This excess of self-destruction
of harmful microorganisms, should an excess of
harmful microorganisms be present, could produce
symptoms called Jarisch-Herzheimer effects (JHEs),
more commonly called Herzheimer reactions. Symptoms
can include mild to moderate headaches, joint
pain, sweating, nausea, flu-like symptoms without
fever, malaise, a red rash, skeletal pain, and
itching. Less common symptoms include chills,
diarrhea (typically of short duration), vomiting
of short duration, and fever. Keep in mind, though,
that these symptoms are actually an indication
that the the detoxification is working and the
natural process of the body, called a "healing-crises"
is taking place due to there having been an excessive
amount of harmful microorganisms having been present.
If you experience Herxheimer reactions, stop taking
the treatment for 24 to 48 hours and then resume
at a lower number of servings to allow the body
to maintain balance. Consult a doctor for medical
needs. These statements have not been evaluated
by the FDA.
What are the benefits
of taking humic/fulvic acid?
Wow! Where do we start. Below are a couple
lists of possible uses. We have had to leave out
all the things the FDA won't let us talk about,
but there's enough here to go on with. Internally,
fulvic acid reportedly: Increases energy Is an
unparalleled, bioavailable mineral and amino acid
supplement Is a powerful antioxidant and free
radical scavenger Chelates heavy metals and body
toxins, removing them from the system Transports
nutrients into the cells Extends the time nutrients
remain active — potentiates the availability
of essential nutrients Increases metabolism of
proteins, contributing to DNA and RNA synthesis
Is a powerful natural electrolyte Restores electrochemical
balance Increases activity of a host of enzyme
systems Helps rebuild the immune system Increases
bioavailability of nutrients and minerals Used
externally, fulvic acid: May be used to treat
open wounds, cuts, and abrasions Helps burns to
heal with minimum pain or scarring Reduces discoloration
due to skin bruises Kills pathogens responsible
for athletes foot Acts as a wide spectrum antimicrobial
and fungicide May be used on rashes, skin irritations,
insect and spider bites Neutralizes poison ivy
and poison oak Add to the above that since fulvic
acid is humic with the humates removed, humic
acid has all of the above properties plus a more
alkaline pH and a higher proportion of minerals.
humic acid kill viruses?
According to the National Institutes of Health,
which has studied humic repeatedly over the years,
humic acid kills viruses "in vitro."
Additionally, based on their human testing, they
have concluded that it may properly be used by
schoolchildren. We do not claim to diagnose, prevent,
mitigate, treat or cure the 2009 H1N1 influenza
virus or any other "disease". In using
BIONAID™ or ZeoHeal™ should you discover
that viral infections have little or no adverse
affect on you it is completely coincidental and
we do not authorize any claims that our products
have had any successful results with any disease.
On May 1st 2009, the FDA targets the use of unapproved
and uncleared products. On June 27th 2009, the
FDA approved the use of unapproved and uncleared
products. This is more evidence that we must take
for our health, consider all options, and seek
competent health care professionals for our health
needs. These statements have not been approved
by the FDA, but we are not really sure what
are the benefits of mixing zeolite in humic acid?
In order for zeolite to reach our intracellular
fluid and capture heavy metals and toxins, some
type of carrier agent is needed. Also, in order
for the cells to release heavy metals and toxins,
some type of chelating agent is required. Humic
acid is the finest natural chelating agent and
the most effective nutritional carrying agent
known to science. Laboratory tests have proved
that nutrients are up to 90% more bioavailable
when mixed with humic/fulvic acid! Additionally,
we found that the zeolite could be incorporated
into the humic acid in such a way that it would
be carried directly into the system from the stomach,
rather than waiting for digestion in the intestines
where most of it would just go "right on
through." Plus with humic acid you get all
the nutrients your body needs for healthy functioning:
72 minerals and trace minerals, plus all of the
amino acids. Putting zeolite together with humic/fulvic
is kind of a no-brainer!
not mix zeolite in fulvic acid instead of humic?
Fulvic is acidic, because acid is required
to extract it from the humic mineral solution.
The result is that zeolites tend to "drop
out of solution" when they are mixed with
fulvic acid. And even if this acidic quality is
then "rectified" to make it more alkaline,
fulvic still contains whatever was added to begin
with in order to extract it from the humic, so
it's got other ingredients that are not found
in pure, organic humic minerals. Anyway, the extra
step required to manufacture fulvic acid makes
it more expensive. Doesn't make much sense to
spend extra money to make your product less effective.
not take zeolite in powder form?
Go ahead. It probably won't hurt you. Just remember
that powdered zeolite was first used to combat
diarrhea, so you might not not want to use it
if you need prune juice to get things moving down
there. But powdered zeolite is not otherwise bioavailable.
It's not digestible, and there's no carrier agent.
So if we are attempting to remove toxins from
our cells and blood, powdered zeolite is pretty
much a waste of money.
are the advantages of frequency enhancement?
According to the FDA, there are zero
advantages. Apparently, the FDA would have us
believe that the universe is made up of "stuff,"
and the energetic properties of that "stuff"
are totally irrelevant. Contrariwise, according
to such scientific and medical giants as Reich,
Reif, Tesla, et al., not to mention the entire
alternative healing community and pretty much
all of our customers, the advantages are astounding.
And the energy folks who have looked at our product
seem to believe that Zeoheal™ stands head
and shoulders above the competition — even
those competitors who are claiming frequency enhancement!
You can investigate this aspect yourself. Just
obtain a couple different zeolite products, search
out an energy-sensitive friend or practitioner
who's willing to compare them, and see what you
get. One of our customers took Zeoheal™
to a dowser who said it practically knocked him
"across the room," and a group in the
Netherlands wrote us recently to claim that ours
is the highest-energy product they've ever tested.
Bottom line: You'll have to make up your own mind
about frequency enhancement.
is the truth of others' claims to have an "original"
The first humic zeolite was made by
two folks in a partnership that no longer exists,
one of whom is the scientist behind the technology
of Zeoheal™. This creator of our product
happens to be one of a tiny number of scientists
in the world who know how to permanently embue
living matter with selected frequencies. It was
this energy scientist who invented the secret
process that is still used today by Zeoheal™
and by no one else. Only Zeoheal™ is made
with the original energy-enhancement process we
still employ. What is the process? We can't say.
That's why it's a secret. Other producers are
using magnets and vortex dynamics to energize
their zeolite products, and we do those things,
too. That technology is no secret. But that's
only a very small part of our full energy-enhancement
process. The proof is "in the pudding,"
as they say. Again, you'll have to make up your
own mind on this one.
you have to do some chemical process to "clean
the zeolite cages"?
If you look at the patent application
for our multi-level-marketing competitor, you
will see that "cleaning cages" has absolutely
nothing to do with what they are all about. The
high-heat acid bath methodology was for the purpose
of dissolving the zeolite so that it could be
injected (!!) directly into tumors. The cleaning-the-cages
idea is a marketing ploy, pure and simple. Any
chemist will tell you it's nonsense. The minute
you cool down the acid bath, whatever was in the
zeolite molecules goes right back in. The only
way to get pure zeolite is to use a pure source.
Our scientist (the "energy guy" —
see previous Q/A) figured out how to dissolve
the zeolite organically, without using chemicals,
acid, or heat. And what goes into our Zeoheal™
is a pure source: the only clinoptilolite
ore supply that's FDA approved for human consumption.
is the quality of the humates in Zeoheal™?
Our humic acid is made under strict
laboratory conditions. The humic ore which is
the basis for Zeoheal™ is from New Mexico's
Mesa Verde Resources, which is considered to be
the highest quality humate in the world, even
more so than the Indian "shilajit."
what ways is Zeoheal™ superior to the well-known
clear, acid-based zeolite?
Zeoheal™ is more bioavailable,
because humic/fulvic is a "carrier agent"
— it carries supplements into the bloodstream
and intracellular fluid. It's more powerful because
humic and fulvic are the most effective agents
known to science for potentiating nutrients. It's
more effective in capturing heavy metals and toxins,
because humic/fulvic chelates them out of the
cells, delivering the toxins into the intracellular
fluid where the zeolite can then capture them.
Plus Zeoheal™ contains all the minerals
and amino acids that your cells need for optimum
function, in a liquid that has the perfect, alkaline
pH balance for your body's maximum health. Our
multi-level-marketing competitor offers none of
WE MAKE NO CLAIMS THAT OUR PRODUCT CURES, TREATS,
MITIGATES, ETC., ANY DISEASES - SEE A MEDICAL
PROFESSIONAL - IF YOU FIND THAT IN USING OUR PRODUCT
THAT DISEASES DISAPPEAR IT IS PURELY COINCIDENTAL.
