New Study Shows Humic Acid Reduces Heavy Metal Toxicity in Fish

Another animal study strengthens the case for natural organic matter (NOM) containing humic acid as a way to remediate heavy metal excess in the environment and in living things. Published in the journal Ecotoxicology Environmental Safety, JD Oullet et al concluded ” Collectively, these findings suggest that metal accumulation caused by chronic 45 percent PWE exposureContinue reading “New Study Shows Humic Acid Reduces Heavy Metal Toxicity in Fish”

WHAT IS HUMIC ACID?

The study of humates (primarily comprised of humic acid and fulvic acid) is a relatively new subject, particularly as it pertains to human health.  A growing body of research suggests that these novel compounds may be very beneficial to living things, from plants and soil to animals and human beings. To the naturalist these connectionsContinue reading “WHAT IS HUMIC ACID?”

Shilajit (Humic acid) for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Very impressive study showing dibenzo-α-pyrones , and fulvic acids from Shilajit were effective against CFS in rats. Shilajit reversed the CFS-induced increase in immobility period and decrease in climbing behavior as well as attenuated anxiety in the EPM test. Shilajit reversed CFS-induced decrease in plasma corticosterone level and loss of adrenal gland weight indicating modulationContinue reading “Shilajit (Humic acid) for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”

WHAMC—A chemical equilibrium model and computer code for waters, sediments, and soils incorporating a discrete site/electrostatic model of ion-binding by humic substances

WHAMC—A chemical equilibrium model and computer code for waters, sediments, and soils incorporating a discrete site/electrostatic model of ion-binding by humic substances This is a pretty interesting 1994 paper from the Institute of Freshwater Ecology in the UK, proposing a new model for exploring ion-binding by Humic Acids.  The author E. Tipping notes “WHAM combinesContinue reading “WHAMC—A chemical equilibrium model and computer code for waters, sediments, and soils incorporating a discrete site/electrostatic model of ion-binding by humic substances”

The ancient and amazing world of humic and fulvic acid

Is there a “missing link” to human health? While there certainly are many important substances for human health – a growing body of research suggests that some ancient living compounds from the Earth may be key elements missing in our diets. Welcome to Living Organic Earth.  We hope that this website will be a greatContinue reading “The ancient and amazing world of humic and fulvic acid”
