Fulvic Acid Research
At Mana Life Lab our goal is to work with products the way mother nature intended us to. We use traditional wisdom and modern science to Provide a product that meets real needs.
Our products are not denatured by heat, and to the extent that is possible, we use all natural methods for processing our materials including the collection of rainwater.
A TRUE Fulvic ISOLATE made via cold-microbial process
Our roof is a rain collector, capturing pristine waters collected 45 miles from the Cascade mountain range. We use this water to brew our liquid fulvic products.
For our liquid fulvic we use a complex enzymatic process, or slow fermentation, using a culture developed by Dr. Faust in Hawaii. The technology is based on an updated method of a centuries old Chinese process developed in the Ming Dynasty and mimics the earth’s natural processes (who does it better, See Chinese Medical research below?). This results in a true fulvic (not fulvate or salt of fulvic) which has not been compromised by acids, chemicals and preservatives. Each batch takes up to three months to brew and is then bottled in small, made-to-order quantities. BioAg fulvic is a true isolate that is stable in a liquid form for much longer than humic acid liquids (which tend to degrade on the shelf).
Please note, although it’s filtered through micron filters, it is naturally made and it’s best to keep it out of light and away from heat.
Fulvic Fraction Isolate contains mineral salts, polysaccharides, amino sugars, amino acids, proteins, lignins, tannins, fatty acids, carbohydrates mineral salts, polysaccharides, amino sugars, amino acids, proteins, lignins, tannins, fatty acids, carbohydrates.
Pure hydrophobic fulvic acids do not contain the substances above and only this actual fulvic acid fraction can be absorbed by cell or pass through the dialysis column used to separate the non-fulvic from the true fulvic which is why this test is the only one really showing what fulvic fraction is present. This test method mostly eliminates fraud as only real bioactive(hydrophobic) fulvic acid is counted.
Dry, SOLUBLE powders & low heat conversion
Our powdered products are made via a proprietary dry to dry conversion method, utilizing state of the art equipment, and little to no heat. This process was developed by Dr. Faust with the intent of saving the integrity of the product as typical drying processes utilize high heat which can denature it. Unlike liquefied Humic acid, in dry form it is also highly stable for long periods. The products, containing both humic and fulvic, are highly concentrated helping to reduce the cost and energy of shipping.
Sources high in HUMIC & FULVIC
As an industry pioneer Dr. Faust has searched the world over for the best raw materials. The correct type is rare. Only very old fresh water sites, where ancient broad leaf tree and ferns were grown and converted to a compressed peat are used. Additionally, it’s important that this very old material has been protected and not cracked or weathered, so only specific areas of any formation are worthy. All humate sources are different in overall chemical properties as humic acids contain as many as 10,000 individual compounds some beneficial some negative effects. It takes years of research to find the right materials.
Most black looking minerals are not humic acids, or humic acids of value anyway. Thousands of organic chemicals are involved and it is far more complex than, simply fulvic or humic. There is much misinformation and confusion surrounding humic & fulvic substances. For best results, it’s important to work with suppliers/scientists and/or manufacturers who understand the complexities and can separate fact from fiction.
Modern Chinese Research Proves the benefits of Fulvic Acid in modern Chinese Medicine.

Chapter 33 Research on the development of the medicinal application of humic acid in China
During the Ming Dynasty in the 15th century, there were recorded incidents of the use of “Wujinsan” containing humic acid as the active ingredient in the treatment of infectious ulcerous growth and hemorrhagic diseases.
Prior to 1978, humic acid was used for the treating of a wide range of diseases with success; however, there was in this area very little research conducted on its therapeutic mechanism.
Since then, various medical schools and hospitals in China have engaged in extensive studies on the toxicology, pathological and clinical aspects of humic acid. Over a hundred research papers have been published nationally in China and a score of articles appeared in international journals, in addition to some reports presented at various meetings outside of China. The pharmaceutical usage of humic acid has been approved by the provincial drug administration for its effectiveness and safety, for both internal and external use.
I. Pharmacological study: 1. As an anti-inflammatory agent: The effectiveness of humic acid and fulvic acid relative to hydrogenated cortisone varies with the location of its source and the method of extraction. (i) Humic acid inhibits an enzyme involved in infections and (ii) Humic acid regulates the level of the trace elements Zn and Cu and thus activates the superoxide dismutase which is a Zn and Cu containing enzyme. Free radicals generated in the infected region are dismutated, utilized and eliminated by this agent.
2. Many diseases are caused by malfunction of the circulation in the capillary blood system. The therapeutic effect of fulvic acid is a result of its ability to restore and improve blood circulation in the capillary system. Fulvic acid, on the other hand, serves as well as a blood coagulant when there is bleeding or blood seeping from the vascular bed.
3. The healing effect of humic acid is a result of its ability to stimulate blood circulation in the stomach wall and its ability to inhibit the secretion of acid from the stomach wall. It stimulates as well the secretion of those glands in the stomach which have the ability to protect the stomach inner wall.
4. Immunology: There are indications that with injection of humic acid into the abdominal region, the size of the chest gland in experimental animals increases together with indications of microphage activation.
5. Endocrinology: Sodium fulvate regulates abnormal thyroid secretion as a result of its being able to regulate cyclic nucleotides at the cellular level.
6. Anti cancer: In general, humic acid does not kill cancer cells. It serves as a regulating agent in the immune systems and can be used in conjunction with other anti-cancer medicines. II. Clinical Applications of Humic Acid: 1. Anti-inflammatory and blood coagulant: Humic acid moderates ulcerous conditions on the basis of its anti-inflammatory nature, its coagulating nature and general healing ability.

In summary, as a result of the joint efforts contributed by both the basic science researchers and clinicians, humic acid and its components has proven to be an effective and safe remedy for a wide range of diseases. This accomplishment has raised the curiosity and interests ofscientist from abroad.
Future research and development directions are: 1. Continuous collaboration among researchers in chemistry, pharmacology and medicine is needed to warrant provision of high quality and authentic products. This is a mandate for making the treatment effective and safe.
2. Expand the existing clinical application to benefit more patients. 3. Select meaningful areas and develop research methodologies with width and depth.
4. Acquire advanced information from researchers abroad in order to gain a broader view and understanding of the humic acid application in medicine.
Chapter 42 Clinical applications of sodium fulvate solution
I. Clinical applications of sodium fulvate on cancer patients: 1. Used as an analgesic agent
2. Used to enhance appetite
3. Used to regain physical strength II. Effect of sodium fulvate on mucous problems of the oral region:
Pain subsided substantially. Patients gain good appetite, able to sleep better. III. Effect of Sodium fulvate on diabetic patients: Patients become more energetic. The tingling, painful feeling and numbness experienced in the nerve endings disappear or are reduced. IV. Children with asthma caused by cold can be cured of their symptoms. For adult patients, sodium fulvate shows more potential in alleviating symptoms resulted from asthma caused by infection, but is not as satisfactory with asthma caused by allergy. V. Sodium fulvate serves as a tonic agent for children and adults as well. VI. Effect of sodium fulvate on HBsAg carrying Hepatitis B patients: 25% of the HBsAg positive can be converted to HBsAg negative. VII. Effects of Sodium fulvate on older people: After taking sodium fulvate orally, seniors regain appetite, sleep better and become more energetic.
