    FULVIC ACID Overview Information

    Fulvic acid is a yellow-brown substances found in natural material such as shilajit, soil, peat, coal, and bodies of water such as streams or lakes. Fulvic acid is formed when plants and animals decompose.

    People take fulvic acid by mouth for brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, as well as respiratory tract infections, cancer, fatigue, heavy metal toxicity, and preventing a condition in which the body tissues do not receive enough oxygen (hypoxia).

    How does it work?

    Fulvic acid might have various effects in the body. Fulvic acid might block reactions in the body that cause allergy symptoms. It might also interrupt steps involved in the worsening of brain disorders such as dementia. Additionally, fulvic acid might reduce inflammation and prevent or slow the growth of cancer. Fulvic acid seems to have immune-stimulating and antioxidant effects.

    FULVIC ACID Side Effects & Safety

    There isn’t enough reliable information about fulvic acid to know if it is safe.

    Special Precautions & Warnings:

    Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking fulvic acid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

    Autoimmune diseases: Fulvic acid might increase the activity of the immune system. In theory, fulvic acid might worsen some autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). People with these conditions should be cautious or avoid fulvic acid altogether.

    Kashin-Beck Disease: There is some concern that fulvic acid in drinking water might increase the risk of developing Kashin-Beck disease. It is thought that the risk is greatest in regions where people do not receive enough selenium.
