ANTIBACTERIAL AND VIRULICIDE ACTION
Humic acid affects the metabolism of proteins and carbohydrates of pathogenic bacteria, catalyzing this process. This leads to direct accelerated destruction of cells of bacteria or viruses. Another antibacterial mechanism is associated with the formation under the action of humic acid ion-ionic bonds of high-molecular fragments of proteins (toxins) of infectious bacteria, as a result of which their toxic effect on physiological processes can be significantly weakened or completely neutralized.
ANTIREZORBTIVE AND ADSORPTION EFFECTS
Since humic acid is almost completely preserved in the gastrointestinal tract, reaching the small intestine, antiresorptive and adsorption effects take place where they are needed – in the digestive tract. Primary cationoid oxides of nitrogen (toxins of proteins, toxic substances) are fixed, their absorption noticeably decreases or stops completely, their exit with feces accelerates. Since adsorption with humic acid involves not only physical and chemical interactions, but also the formation of complexes and ion exchange, it proceeds more intensively and dynamically than conventional physical adsorbents.
INFLUENCE ON THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Humic acid stimulates the body’s defenses and enhances phagocytosis. The induction effect on the immune system is exerted by phenolic groups of humic acid. This is the basis for the successful treatment of the so-called “factor diseases” of young animals.
Humic acid stabilizes the intestinal flora, helps to better assimilation of nutrients – improves the efficiency of feeding. This allows you to achieve an increase in live weight without increasing the amount of food in the diet.
HEAVY METAL DRAINAGE BY CHELTING
Humic substances easily form chelate complexes with heavy metals (for example, as dangerous as cadmium) and then effectively remove them from the body, preserving the health of the livestock and improving the quality of livestock and poultry products. The pronounced chelating effect of humic substances in this detoxification is the realization of a chemical mechanism for transporting chelate compounds. Chelation, chelate compounds (Latin Chelate – claw) – intra-complex chelate connections. Chemically chelation is the capture of a metal ion and its transformation into a chelate complex.
