Candice’s Corner – HUmic Acid MINERAL?
To simplify, we are familiar with eating strawberries, broccoli, carrots, leafy greens, and beets. If we were to eat that beautiful green leaf atop the strawberry or eat the roots of beets, the stems of those delicious greens in our salads …..we would be munching on HUmic MINERAL, which is created by HUmates. HUmic Mineral is naturally occurring in our foods (“humates” are a breakdown product from plants, they are throughout the entire plant). They become humates after the plant’s cellulose has been broken down and oxidized.), we’ve just been tossing the best parts of our plants (FOOD) away. Remember to toss back to the earth for recycling. Healthy Body, healthy planet, healthy with HUmineral!
