Fulvic Acid Minerals Information
Please refer to companion article:
Tuberculosis is declared a global epidemic with incurable strains spreading throughout the U.S.
An obscure and highly technical U.S. Government report shows that there is a direct correlation between natural soil substances (humus, humic, fulvic) and the absence of tuberculosis in humans. This report and many other studies reveal that certain humic extracts, particularly fulvic acids, contain a magnificently powerful spectrum of natural micronutrients, phytochemicals, anti-viral and antibiotic-like agents that directly inhibit and destroy disease pathogens, while fortifying and regulating the immune system, increasing overall health. In the report, these extracts, although undetermined at that time, are described as being as potent as penicillin in equally small amounts.
"The present form of agriculture, to which our biological agriculture is opposed, leads to the ruin of soil and health and will eventually bring about the death of humanity." --Professor Louis Kervran

This report, a U.S. Govt. Information Circular from the U.S. Dept. of Interior, Bureau of Mines, shows a direct correlation between exposure of coal miners to humic substances and their complete absence of tuberculosis. Ancient plant deposits that were buried but never turned into true coal still remain organic in form, and are commonly referred to as humic, humates, fulvates, lignite and leonardite, and are found in close proximity above coal. These humic compounds are identical to the black and brown humus found in the very richest soils.
This government report discusses the fact that these same anti-pathogenic substances have also been traced by biochemists into many plant species, and function the same as protective mechanisms found in various plant parts, especially the coats of seeds. Also of interest is the fact that scientists insist that the activity and function of humic matter in fresh humus soil works identically to that found in ancient humic deposits, although the ancient deposits contain substances that are much more highly concentrated.
Many scientists have shown that these various anti-pathogenic substances are produced by beneficial microbes common to rich humus soils. The microbes concentrate and convert higher plant matter forming soluble compounds (fulvic acids) that are readily transported to a new plantís roots and on into the entire plant, often accumulating in specific areas of the plant.
The government report discusses the curious fact that a high concentration of still-living microbes were discovered to be dispersed throughout the interior of all raw humic substances, with the ratios, types, and species consistent with the various types of humates. Many of the strains of microbes were identified to be from the very same families responsible for some of the pharmaceutical industryís most well known, latest, and highly respected drugs and antibiotics, which interestingly are all found in healthy topsoil.
Although the various studies in the government report showed that scientists knew and identified the different species and types of microbes and were familiar with the antibiotic substances they produce, the powerful anti-pathogenic substances they were successful in isolating from humates could not themselves be identified. The speculation is that these substances encompass natureís entire spectrum of known and yet to be discovered antibiotics.
The extracts isolated from humic substance had an activity comparable to or better than that of penicillin at similar or even higher dilution rates. The various studies showed that besides preventing tuberculosis among miners, the unique and varied disease fighting substances were found to have activity against many other human disease pathogens, and activity against plant-pathogenic bacteria as well.
Recent scientific research is gradually unraveling the mystery, and is showing that one of the reasons why individual humic related antibiotic substances are hard to identify is because such an immense and diverse spectrum exists, which have all become combined together molecularly, and also modified and inter-linked with one another. One area of immense interest that has been identified is the quinoid groups, consisting of quinonoids, quinolones, quinones, etc. Pharmacologists are finding that these substances are some of the most powerful antibiotics ever, and also that some of them fortify and increase overall health by increasing resistance to disease. The quinoid groups are very common to high quality humic extracts, especially certain fulvic acids.
