Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid are unique organic compounds found in nature which have shown promise in scientific research regarding the reduction of heavy metals in the environment, in animals, and more recent research suggests that they may also benefit the human immune system.
Researcher Dr Richard Laub has published new and interesting approaches to examining these benefits through his work with the National Institutes of Health http://livingorganicearth.wordpress.com/2013/12/03/dr-richard-laub-discusses-humic-and-fulvic-acid-for-human-health/
In a product like Alkalize 55, or Whole Earth Minerals, the unique humic compounds are found along with 70+ trace minerals which may hold the key to hidden mysteries within the cells of the human body as well. You can see why some of us are greatly interested in combing humic fulvate minerals with foods, based on the cutting edge research currently going on.
Consider this study entitled “Genetic diversity-independent neutralization of pandemic viruses (e.g. HIV), potentially pandemic (e.g. H5N1 strain of influenza) and carcinogenic (e.g. HBV and HCV) viruses and possible agents of bioterrorism (variola) by enveloped virus neutralizing compounds (EVNCs).” and published in the journal Vaccine, which explores combining fulvic acid with pomegranate as an “enveloped virus neutralizing compound”
