Humic and fulvic acid for blood clotting and wound healing

Humic and fulvic acid for blood clotting and wound healing

What is fulvic acid?

Fulvic acid comes from broken down elements and organisms that are left in soil, water and rock formations.  The byproduct is there for long periods of time and many times it’s been there for centuries.

Some of the best fulvic and humic acids are found in clay, the mountains and other regions where rock formations are over the world.  The fulvic acid from different areas around the globe may contain more minerals or more of a nutrient than compared to another.  The product you buy that is fulvic and humic acid drops are filled with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and more.

  • The acids are commonly found in what is called, shilajit (this is a tar-like sticky substance found in mountain rocks, usually in the Himalayans)
  • Over centuries this substance has been used in a variety of kinds of medicine for anti-aging, immune system boosting, anti-inflammatory and has many different antioxidant properties)
  • There is no specific dose that should be used; can be taken as a daily nutritional supplement with no problem

Fulvic and humic acid can help improve cell imbalance: 

  • Is a powerful combinations of antioxidants; ridding of free radicals in the body that cause illness, cancer, and other diseases and conditions
  • Helps our body’s enzyme production
  • Improves hormone levels and structures in the body
  • Absorption of essential vitamins and minerals
  • Can help our cells with the metabolic process
  • Helps the body have a good environment for using essential vitamins and minerals; chemical reactions, blood clotting and

How does fulvic and humic acid allow the blood to clot quicker?

Due to a variety of minerals in these acid byproducts from decayed material, they can be helpful in forming blood clots and have a coagulation side effect.  This can be helpful for people who have trouble clotting properly.  This could be however, a dangerous effect for some people who need their blood thinned and who are already taking drugs such as Warfarin, Coumadin, or take baby aspirin or vitamin E daily for thinning their blood.

Blood clotting—medications that thin the blood; and the fulvic acid that can slow down the blood thinning process—talk to your doctor

Some medications you cannot take while consuming fulvic and humic acids.

  • Immune system therapy drugs like: azathioprine, basiliximab, cyclosporine and prednisone, and others
  • Also, if you have blood thinners you take daily like Warfarin or aspirin (it might be okay, just don’t take fulvic and humic acid in excess; you will be at more of a risk for clotting; talk to your doctor who prescribed these blood thinning medications)

Blood clotting is needed, but certain conditions make it easy to clot causing lift threating issues. Understand your full conditions and what to do or not do is essential.  There are have been studies proving that certain minerals, metals and other items can cause a coagulation side effect.

Study compared different elements and fulvic and humic acid compounds and how certain contents were better at coagulating blood than others

The study looked at the coagulation effects from aluminium sulfate, ferric chloride, aluminium polychloride and poly-ferric chloride, and calcium and the compounds from humic acid and fulvic acid. The elements in the humic acid was higher for coagulation than compared to fulvic acid alone, when compared to the aluminium polychloride and poly-ferric chloride, the aluminium sulfate and ferric chloride had a better blood clotting or coagulation effect. It is clear, humic acid components when mixed with fulvic acid help the clotting of blood quicker.

Humic acid also forms glycoproteins.  This is able to have your red blood cells use iron (also in HA and Fulvic acid) form Fe2+.  This is what allows your cells to restore and use oxygen and allow its carrying abilities. The fulvic acid is also very good at being a chelating agent—the bonding of ions in the body.  This helps it use iron and helps improve your blood thickness or viscosity. 

Wound healing with humic acid

Because humic acid has a stronger ability to form the blood clotting effects, this is what can help promote wound healing. So, skin conditions, gut conditions with inflammation, can have a great outcome when drinking a beverage with fulvic and humic acids in the mixture.  Magnesium and potassium can help circulation and iron and zinc are also part of the mixture of minerals that are in fulvic and humic acid. 

They are both needed for skin health and wound healing. B complex is also needed for wound healing and B vitamins are also found in the byproduct of earth decompositions.  You can also take vitamin C daily to help these minerals and vitamins with wound healing as well.

Study shows humic acid and wound healing effects

Humic acid can have wound healing effects and has antibacterial properties. A study was done on rats to look at the wound healing capacity in the mouth after an excision. Wounds were treated with humic acid, chlorhexidine, and saline as a control material for the study. The outcome was that both the humic acid treatment along with the rinse of chlorhexidine was able to heal the areas in the rats compared to saline.

The outcome of the clinical study showed that the humic acid alone speed up the wound healing process, dramatically.  Humic acid can be used as an alternative treatment and therapy after dental work or from other oral wounds because of its healing capabilities.

Should you consume humic and fulvic acid if you have health conditions that cause over clotting

This is something you need to talk to your doctor about.  In small amounts taking the fulvic and humic acid orally should be fine.  Everyone can benefit by improving the immune system, heart muscle, blood pressure lowering effects, improving skin health and more. 

However, if you are currently taking a blood thinning drug, it is best to test blood levels of certain vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and other items to see where you are at before consuming it at higher levels.  Typically, this supplement is harmless, and it depends on dose to cause a serious blood clot related issue.

While consuming fulvic and humic acid know it can have some side effects and know the risks and talk to your medical provider about consuming it daily or increasing dose

Fulvic acid can help detox the body because of the various minerals it contains.  It is however easily flushed out of the system.  It could have some side effects:

  • Diarrhea
  • Cramping
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Headaches
  • Too much could cause promote coagulation of blood

The supplement can be highly beneficial for many health conditions, including skin and GI health and wellness.  It can also help brain health.  For long term use nothing has been studied so discussing this with an alternative medicine doctor is essential.  You and your doctor know your body best, how you react and what your health conditions are presently to better understand how this natural health supplement can help or harm you.  Understanding the risk to benefit ratio is critical if you already have a clotting disorder.
