Humic and fluvic acid

Two constituents almost impossible to find today

The two most interesting constituents of shilajit are fulvic acid and humic acid (generally grouped under the term "humic acids"). In themselves, these two components are not exceptional because they simply come from the slow decomposition of biomass over thousands of years. Unfortunately, agricultural production has used and abused these treasures and our agricultural lands (especially those which have been the subject of intensive exploitation) hardly contain them anymore.

Humic acids are thus the missing link in our modern food chain. However, they have multiple, scientifically recognized beneficial effects:

  • Deep cleaners, they neutralize environmental toxins (plastics, chemicals, heavy metals, drug residues) that we breathe, eat and drink.

  • They increase longevity, improve memory and cognitive abilities.

  • They reduce allergies and respiratory problems, reduce stress and relieve digestive disorders.

  • They have anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity.

  • They boost immunity and increase strength, male fertility and endurance.

  • They help dissolve the calcium crystals that are deposited on our tissues, our bone structure and even our brain, when we experience stress or aggression from our environment.

  • Several studies show that fulvic acid has beneficial effects on blood sugar control and reducing oxidation.


People with kidney problems.

Pregnant or breastfeeding woman



To note

Studies have shown that taking shilajit increases the level of creatinine, white blood cells and hemoglobin in patients, its use is not recommended for people suffering from kidney problems. “It could also increase uric acid levels for some people, so this supplement is not recommended in cases of gout or high uric acid,” warns Amalia Boxberger.

It is also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Fulvic acid traps and retains mineral salts; several experts warn of the risks of deficiency in certain minerals when taking fulvic acid for a long time, particularly with regard to iron and selenium . People with too high blood iron levels (hemochromatosis) should not consume it either.

In some rat studies, administration of fulvic acid decreased the activity of the thyroid gland. In addition, following the administration of this humic acid, blood signs of inflammation and a more intense immune reaction during infection were observed.

However, no drug interactions are known to date.



Attack treatment over 1 month for a powerful chelating effect (elimination of heavy metals) take up to 1 gram per day, the equivalent of a spoon. Which corresponds approximately to one jar for 1 month.

Maintenance treatment over 3 months for a lasting effect, take up to 0.25 grams per day , the equivalent of 1 spoon . Which corresponds approximately to a pot for 3 months.

Tips for use

To ensure accurate dosing, use the spoon provided to measure 500 mg of resin.

We advise you to take the resin ideally on an empty stomach in the morning then one hour before lunch then two hours before going to bed. Note that the fulvic acid contained in shilajit will increase the effects of what you take within a 2-hour interval.

Dissolve the resin in hot (not boiling) water, tea or any other beverage. In Ayurveda, shilajeet is consumed with milk. Stir and consume. It can also be swallowed or dissolved under the tongue.

You can use it non-stop, but it is always better to switch from one period of use to another.
