A study published a couple of years ago in the journal Phytotherapy Research addresses the anti-inflammatory properties of humic acid related metabolites. The authors commented, “They reduce the C-reactive protein levels of patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee and the wheel and flare reaction of patients suffering from hay fever.”
For those who are unaware, C-reactive protein levels are considered an important biomarker for levels of inflammation within the body. Conditions ranging from osteoarthritis to heart disease to allergic rhinitis have been correlated with high levels of CRP.
