Fibromyalgia, is a syndrome rather than a specific disease. As such there are a complex of symptoms which may or may not be present in any particular clinical instance of fibromyalgia. The most common symptoms, however, can all be helped by fulvic acid complexes as fulvic acid has been shown to be effective in reducing muscle and joint pain, improving sleep, and decreasing fatigue. Generalized muscle stiffness should also be reduced
Scientists found that fulvic acids show significant success in preventing and combating free radical damage to pancreatic islet B cells, which is the widely accepted cause for diabetes mellitus. What they discovered was that the Fulvic acid preparation significantly increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity. Their clinical studies show that fulvic acids diminish the development and progression of diabetes, and assisted in the treatment.

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.
