Zeolite : the Magic Stone

I told you it was a doozy… https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/26268084/ Published in the journal Nutricion Hospitilaria, this meta-analysis looks at many different kinds of zeolites. Consider this one paragraph from the paper (Fulltext available online)http://www.aulamedica.es/nh/pdf/8914.pdf “Zeolite properties were also investigated at a ce- rebral level. Montinaro M et al19 studied in a model of Alzheimer diseases miceContinue reading “Zeolite : the Magic Stone”

Activated and Micronized Zeolite in the Modulation of Cellular Oxidative Stress in Mexican Smokers: A Randomized Clinical Trial.

Objective of this study, published this year in the journal Revista De Investigacion Clinica was “To evaluate activated and micronized zeolites as modulators of cellular oxidative stress in Mexican smokers without lung diseases.” Researchers concluded “Activated and micronized zeolites may be useful as a modulator of oxidative stress in smokers. However, inclusion of a comparison group of non-smokers would be usefulContinue reading “Activated and Micronized Zeolite in the Modulation of Cellular Oxidative Stress in Mexican Smokers: A Randomized Clinical Trial.”

Fulvic acid promotes extracellular anti-cancer mediators from RAW 264.7 cells, causing to cancer cell death in vitro.

Fulvic acid promotes extracellular anti-cancer mediators from RAW 264.7 cells, causing to cancer cell death in vitro. “The FA-CM augmented MCA-102 fibrosarcoma cell apoptosis; however, an NO inhibitor N(G)-monomethyl-l-arginine (NMMA) slightly inhibited the FA-CM-mediated MCA-102 fibrosarcoma cell apoptosis, which was accompanied by low levels of NO. In the present study, we found that FA inducesContinue reading “Fulvic acid promotes extracellular anti-cancer mediators from RAW 264.7 cells, causing to cancer cell death in vitro.”

Humic acid inhibits HBV-induced autophagosome formation and induces apoptosis in HBV-transfected Hep G2 cells.

Humic acid inhibits HBV-induced autophagosome formation and induces apoptosis in HBV-transfected Hep G2 cells. This is very interesting in vivo research.  From the abstract, the researchers wrote “Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) utilizes several mechanisms to survive in the host cells and one of the main pathways being autophagosome formation. Humic acid (HA), one of theContinue reading “Humic acid inhibits HBV-induced autophagosome formation and induces apoptosis in HBV-transfected Hep G2 cells.”

Dr Richard Laub Discusses Humic and Fulvic Acid for Human Health.

Dr Richard Laub was researching humic acid for many years. When a pharmaceutical company (and now, more than one) began researching synthetic oxyhumates for drug discovery, he began his own research into the natural earth mineral compounds in humates and their effects on human health. The results are simply stunning. http://www.fulvicmineral.com/uploads/6/7/7/3/6773870/fulvic_and_humic_-studies.pdf

Lead Binding to Soil Fulvic and Humic Acids: NICA-Donnan Modeling and XAFS Spectroscopy.

In a study published in the journal Environmental Science Technology the activity of different kinds of humic acid forms are compared in terms of their ability to bind to lead (Pb).  The group found that “Pb binding to humic substances (HS) increased with increasing pH and decreasing ionic strength.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24040886
