Humic acid has a special ability to chelate, or bind to, positively charged ions in the human body. It binds to the deposits that form when particles of magnesium, calcium, iron, cadmium or phosphorous dissolve in water because these deposits are positively charged. This purifies the body and helps restore natural balance, much as it does in plants.
Not only are scientists studying new ways that humic acid might be used to clean heavy metals from the body, but they’re also looking at how it might be used to keep unwanted metals out of the body.²
Of course, some biochemical reactions depend on the presence of specific metals. In fact, a well-balanced, properly functioning human body needs a trace amount of certain metals. Too much metal, however, can damage the body.
Some scientist believe they may have already found a way to regulate the amount of metal ions that enter certain farm-raised plants. That could mean people would soon consume less unwanted metal in the first place, and that their bodies will be less dependent on purging and purification to expel toxic heavy metals.
