How Antiviral Humic Acid “Neutralizes” Viruses
When a virus attaches to a body cell’s receptor, the virus pokes a hole in the body cell and inserts its own DNA into it. The virus DNA uses the cell’s “machinery” to replicate itself and create more viruses, which then go on to bind to (and infect) other cells.
But when Humic acid is introduced – because it is “stickier” – it binds to the virus so the virus can’t attach to the body cells. Therefore the virus can’t reproduce itself. And since the virus can’t proliferate into large numbers, the body’s immune system can eliminate the small number of viruses, without being overwhelmed. And, when not allowed to reproduce themselves, most flu viruses for example die out in 36 to 48 hours.

Humic acid is a remarkable healing substance with high mineral and micronutrient content, and potent antiviral properties, which is extracted from ancient soil deposits.*
Humic Acid is being used effectively in preventing viral infections because it interferes with a virus’ ability to attach to a host cell, penetrate the host cell, and reproduce itself.*
Research indicates that humic acids function both prophylactically as well as therapeutically in the treatment of viral diseases.*
All animal viruses must bind to host cells in order to reproduce. Humic acid has been show in numerous vitro studies to block this fusion process (including AIDS, Herpes, Influenza, and Hemorrhagic fever). The immune system then eliminates these viruses.*
