1. The acids and salts that make up the humic complex could not be synthesized by chemists, and can’t be clearly defined, since an extremely complex process takes place.
2. Humic substances are formed as a result of humification of plant and animal remains of nature, by anaerobic microbiological decomposition, fermentation and mineralization. The process of humification is the second largest planetary ecological process, after photosynthesis and the formation of a significant biomass – plants and animals. Humic acids form the main element of the humic complex, they are very resistant to further biodegradation. The exact properties and structure of a specific sample of the humic complex depend on the source of its origin and the specific production technologies.
3. The averaged properties of the humic complex substances from various sources of origin are rather close.
4. The humic complex of substances (acids and their salts) is extracted as a colloidal solution from various sources (leonardite, sapropel, lowland peat, oxidized combustible shale, etc.) by leaching with sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide or ammonium hydroxide. Different acids of the humic complex have different bases of solubility – alkali, acid, alcohol, ethers, oils. Fulvic acid precipitates from the solution by adjusting the pH to one with acetic or nitric acid. This determines the operational differences between humic and fulvic acids. The alcohol soluble part of the humic complex is called the ulmic acid.
5. The main element of the humic complex is fulvic acid. It is an active substance of the complex and is considered by many researchers as an independent substance with unique properties. Fulvic acid is recognized as one of the key elements in many outstanding breakthroughs in agrotechnology, medicine and pharmacology in recent years. More and more scientists of agrarians and doctors around the world recognize the enormous potential of humic substances and, above all, fulvic acid and its salts.
6. Fulvic acid – the strongest organic electrolyte, has antiviral properties and is a transporter of chelating compounds of minerals in plant and animal systems at the cellular level. Fulvic acids are a biologically active mixture of weak aliphatic and aromatic organic acids, soluble in water. Being a very powerful organic natural electrolyte, fulvic acids are able to balance the energy and biological properties of the whole living nature. Under the influence of fulvic acid, the electrical potential of any living cell is reconstructed, it becomes healthy and active.
7. Fulvic acid is an effective universal detoxifier.
8. Fulvic acid is the most powerful natural antioxidant. It is capable of chemically modifying free radicals in new neutral compounds or eliminating them as waste, transporting from the cell.
