Start Your Day with Humic Fulvic Minerals

Bulletproof coffee – stand back. Don’t get me wrong; I’ve been known to put a little coconut oil in my coffee. It’s actually a great idea. But lately I’ve been starting my day with a dose of electrolyte minerals and I’ve been really impressed with the results!

Humic acid, and its related metabolite fulvic acid, have been increasingly researched for their beneficial health effects. It is no secret that the abundance of trace minerals found in connection with humic fulvates are beneficial and energizing. They even kind of look like coffee! Talk about the doctrine of signature; I don’t know how I missed this combination that has been right in front of my face.

I’ve been adding a tablespoon per cup of coffee. It is fine to heat the minerals, but I have found it works best to add it in to the java once it has been brewed.  The same way humic and fulvic acid can boost absorption of nutrients, minerals and botanicals – they can do for you and your morning caffeine beverage. You could even go crazy and add the minerals AND the coconut oil to your morning elixir. Have fun with it!

This month Whole Earth Minerals humic fulvic trace mineral blend is on sale at the Food Movement for just $29.99.

Can Humic and Fulvic Acid benefit the immune system?

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.Virus ENVC

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”

New Humates and Biomineralization blog!

It is in its rough stages, but Living Organic Earth is now up.  Because Whole Earth Minerals is somewhat of an obscure subject at this point, LOE is presented as a third-party blog to bridge the gap between good scientific literature on the subject and commercial products. All efforts like this are needed, much as they are with something like botanical medicine, to ‘rise above’ the sometimes heavy-handed marketing which can distract from a truly beneficial new type of supplement.

Whole Earth Minerals : humates, humic acid and fulvic acid for the benefit of humankind

It seems an auspicious date, 12/12/12 as it were, to unveil the genesis of Whole Earth Minerals.  After much research, two groups I have worked with have finally formed an alliance through Medicatrix Naturae and the release of Whole Earth Minerals, a complex of humates, humic acid, fulvic acid and 72 biominerals is upon us.WEMinerals-large

Like much emergent science, the subject matter is esoteric.  The playing field is crowded with multi-level marketing claims and polluted products; yet the underlying truth is that humates represent a series of compounds which are very beneficial to the human body. How best to bring them to the people?

Well, in natural medicine the first rule is Primer Nocer Noctum, or first do no harm. I have to tell you that when I and my associates first started investigating humates, we came into contact with some material that was utterly polluted.  Amazingly, some people believe you can pull organic mineral deposits out of the ground without any purification or processing and serve them to people! This, my friends, is blatantly irresponsible and dangerous.

At long last we have found a raw material that meets our standards (including the standards of California’s Proposition 61!) and are moving forward with our dietary supplement Whole Earth Minerals. It is an exciting time to be part of this new science connecting us with this ancient living organic material.

There is so much to write on this subject that we have created a blog, Living Organic Earth, which will be filled with information on humates, humic acid, fulvic acid and trace minerals in the days to come.  I will say this; the research on humates is compelling, yet a great deal of misinformation (like this) exists out there.  The truth is this may be one supplement we can’t afford not to pay attention to.
