Kidney Damage, Lignites and More
Fulvic cause Kidney/Organ damage?
After looking at the literature of competitor products, customers
sometimes ask whether our products can cause organ or kidney
damage, or damage to any bodily system. The answer is NO!
Fulvic and Humic processed without chemicals have been proven to be
safe and beneficial to all systems of the body, are non-toxic to
internal organs, and are highly advantageous to all cleansing and
purifying functions within the body. Any competitor making this claim
is misinformed or unfamiliar with naturally processed humic and fulvic.
Humic is the original plant material our minerals are extracted
from. It is known by many names: Humic, Humate, humin,
Lignite, and Loenardite; it has characteristics similar to
Manufacturing shortcuts that utilize harsh chemicals, high heat and
pressure in the processing of Humic/Lignite products,
continue to be the only real negative in the consumption of this
vitally important substance. Humic and Fulvic can be damaged
or killed entirely with unnecessarily harsh processing, giving the
final product only minimal benefits, while exposing consumers to
unhealthy chemical residues.
Vital Earth's proprietary extraction process:
The extraction process used by Vital Earth Minerals is difficult and
lengthy, involving a minimum of 20 to 30 days per batch, using nothing
but cool, purified water. Very few manufacturers are
willing, or capable of undergoing this drawn-out, complicated filtering
process, which is why harsh chemicals, high heat and pressure extrusion
are used by others; it takes a lot of time to extract Humic
and fulvic in a non-destructive way.
Vital Earth's proprietary process preserves and protects the precious
humic and fulvic at every stage. We have not added any vile tasting
chemicals, so flavoring is unnecessary. We like to say “completely
natural from the Earth to the bottle”.
In the spirit of full disclosure, it must be noted that Humate/Lignite
sources within the US are limited in number and are regional.
Although the supply is absolutely abundant, Humic/Lignite is only
located in a few isolated places in the US. Because of this
limited regional availability, many manufacturers are getting their
Humate from the very same source. So you
can see, what sets products apart, and the truly important key as to
whether the product will be beneficial is what has happened in the
If a manufacturer's Lignite, humic or fulvic has gone through any
process other than filtering with cool water, or is flavored or
sweetened (generally to hide the taste of chemicals), it is advisable
to get more in-depth information about the reason for this.
What is Humic?
Humic can be thought of as being similar to a giant compost of organic
plant matter. This concentrated plant material is the result
of microbial biodegration of organic matter. Humic/Lignite is
very complex, and contains a mixture of substances that are one of the
least understood aspects of humic chemistry.
All attempts to re-create Humic and Lignite in a laboratory setting
have failed. This substance was created by nature and thus
remains as something that can only be obtained from nature; offering
indispensable health benefits not possible from man-made substances.
