Humic acid is a collective term for different compounds obtained in the process of humification - the physical, chemical, and microbiological transformation of decaying plants. Derived from natural compounds found in humus soil, with molecules obtained from ecologically clean sources, humic acid is characterized as a loose assembly of aromatic polymers, with varying molecular weights, structural properties, and reactivity. Herbalists in Rome and China have used humic acid for thousands of years; the scientific research of its benefits began in Europe in the 18th century. This complex structure contains many nutritional phytochemical groups, and also possesses chelating properties - the ability to bind heavy metals and toxins.
Angrographis paniculate is an herb traditionally used in China, India, and Southeast Asia. Androgrpahis paniculata (also called “Indian echinacea” or “king of bitters”) has been used for thousands of years in China and Thailand, and has recently become increasingly popular in both the United States and Scandinavia. More than 30 substances, such as andrographolides, flavonoids, and flavonoid glycosides (including diterpenoids), can be extracted from the stems and leaves of Andrographis paniculate.
Spirulina (Arthrospira platensis) is a blue-green alga specie, rich in essential nutrients, including minerals (iron, potassium, magnesium), proteins, vitamins (especially vitamin B12), provitamin A (B-carotene), fatty acids, phenolic acids, tocophenols and more. Two components were recently recognized as playing a key role in spirulina's function: Phycocyanin, a pigment belonging to a group of water-soluble proteins called “phycobiliproteins,” and calcium-spirulan, a polysaccharide unique to spirulina containing both sulfur and calcium. Our spirulina extract is obtained by a proprietary process to achieve higher concentration of polysaccharides and phycobiliproteins.
Zinc is an essential mineral - the most abundant trace element in biological systems - that plays vital role in the body. A structural element related to the normal function of the immune system and DNA synthesis, zinc helps protect cells from oxidative stress, and is crucial for nutrient metabolism and cognitive function.
