Humic extracts, especially fulvic acids, when administered both topically and orally are proven to regulate the immune system as powerful immunomodulators, and to work as potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.
In studies with hospital patients with rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, humic extract bath therapy treatment had a 92% success rate. Several hundred similar studies have been performed in China showing that fulvic acid and humic extracts are proven highly successful.
