Humic/Fulvic Acid: Forgotten Keys To Great Health

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Humus and Human have the same meaning: From and Of the Earth.  Humus is the primary root of our food supply.  Humic and Fulvic Acids are the substrates of the soil from which we get our food.  Our soil is mineral depleted, which means our foods are mineral depleted, which means WE are mineral depleted.

Minerals are the keys that start the engine of our health.  Every metabolic process in the body depends on a mineral to function.  – Dr. Bob McCauley 

Humic acids are a group of compounds created by the degradation of organic matter and are a portion of natures biological processes. Over time the deposited material has decomposed and reduced into humic, fulvic, and ulmic fractions.  Humic and Fulvic acids are excellent for human health.
