HUmineral’s Monthly Newsletter
Its that time of year again, when we travel near and far to be with family, friends, and loved ones. Family is the first institution. Family can be the neighbors next door, down the street, 3000 miles away, the co-worker you befriended 20 years ago, the stylist who made you gorgeous for your wedding, the client who knows everything about you. Whether adopted, foster, step, half, started as a friend and turned into a sister, started as the handyman and became Uncle Bob, ah, the list is endless. Family is that warm special feeling we have when we connect with someone. Whether the families we are born into or those we collect along the way, enjoy this special time of year and remember to focus on and celebrate all the good blessings, now and always.
Paul, Ana, Roro, thank you for staying supportive and connected through the years, your constant, unwavering presence no matter the challenge or the distance.
Your energy and support is always felt. My heart is full. Thank you!
HUmineral Healthy Share – The Mission is Health
Improved Energy & Reduced Pain
In our last HU-Healthy Share we discussed INFLAMMATION and FREE RADICALS. This month we continue with another one of Dr.Josh Axe’s seven positives for using HUmic Acid MINERAL.
HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL partakers have reported improvement in energy levels, (likely due to the increased detoxification benefits of HUmic Mineral), which lowers levels of inflammation and free radical damage, and provides higher intake of electrolytes and key nutrients. HUmic Acid MINERALs major benefits, a powerful electrolyte, and rich with poly-phenols (antioxidants). This is the major reason HUmic Acid Mineral is so relevant to improved health overall and HUmineral’s mission to make all aware.
Inflammation has been found to be associated with just about every health condition. Arthritis is inflammation of the joints, heart disease is inflammation of the arteries. Instead of taking medication to reduce joint pain or lower cholesterol, we would be better served by reducing inflammation in the body overall. A diet high in antioxidants (HUmic Acid provides antioxidants), help reduce damage caused by inflammation.
“Dr. Tanya Edwards, director of the Center for Integrative Medicine, writes that inflammation is now recognized as the underlying basis of a significant number of diseases. Although inflammation has long been known to play a role in allergic diseases like asthma, arthritis and Crohn’s disease, Edwards says, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and Parkinson’s disease may all be related to chronic inflammation in the body.
There’s some evidence that HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERALs electrolytes can help reduce swelling, decrease inflammation, soothe and relax muscles, and improve circulation. Electrolyte imbalance can cause these symptoms to worsen.
“According to research done by Doctors Across Borders, studies have found that as a natural and organic electrolyte, HUmic Acid MINERALs activate and energize nearly every biological process in the body. An electrolyte is soluble in water and works by conducting electrical currents, reducing cell mutation and helping cells survive in the face of damage caused by things like emotional stress, uncontrolled infections, unbalanced diet, prolonged loss of sleep and surgical shocks.”
Electrolytes are nutrients (or minerals), found within bodily fluids; urine, blood, sweat. They have many important functions; regulate your heartbeat, allows muscle flow/contraction for mobility. The major electrolytes within the body include calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphate, and chloride. Electrolytes are given their name because they literally have an “electrical charge.” They separate into positive and negative sending signals to one another by a process of chemical exchanges, both outside and inside of your cells/body. These crucial nutrients help stimulate nerves throughout the body and balance fluid levels. An electrolyte imbalance can cause a variety of serious negative symptoms.
We uptake electrolytes by eating different foods and drinking certain fluids. You lose electrolytes via exercise, sweating, urinating.
Here are some Major Electrolytes and their roles:
Calcium: assists muscle contractions, nerve signaling, blood clotting, cell division, and forming/maintaining bones and teeth.
Potassium: assists stability of blood pressure levels, regulating heart contractions, helping with muscle functions.
Magnesium: a must for muscle contractions, proper heart rhythms, nerve functioning, bone-building and strength, digestion, stable protein-fluid balance, aids calmness.
Sodium: aids maintenance of fluid balance, needed for muscle contractions, and aids with nerve signaling.
Chloride: maintains fluid balance

I have just returned from visiting customers in the mid West (Missouri, Nebraska and Chicago). I like to explore in my travels. This trip was all about “WATER”. I discovered I love FLOATING. Floating is being submerged in 96 degree water filled with 890lbs of Epson mineral salts (depending on facility). Light soothing music plays in the distance in a dim to completely dark environment (at your control). Completely relaxing, especially when it is not bed time, is extremely difficult for me. Within 10 minutes I was sound asleep. I could NOT believe it! The room is completely sound and lightproof, providing the ultimate conditions for mind/body relaxation. Since there is no sensory stimulus for your brain to process, the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) activates, which is associated with promoting healing, regeneration and nourishment for the body, and up-regulating the immune system of the body.
I took 3 Humic Mineral Vegetarian Capsules prior to entering the tank. During the experience of floating, the Epsom salt helps reduce inflammation, improves skin problems, increases blood flow and soothes the muscles and aching limbs, like HUmic Acid MINERAL. The experience of floating encourages deep relaxation which produces significant physical and mental benefits. When my session was complete, I felt very light ….as if my body were 50lbs lighter. I met my sister for dinner shortly afterwards, and she commented my skin was glowing. I will definitely be a regular Floater. Floating and being on a Jet Ski have been a few of this summers highlights thus far.
A Place to Float:
A hygienic environment is important to me when working out. I found Evanston Float Center (EFC) facilities to be impeccable. Friendly service and patient explaining the process and procedures. They also offer massage therapy before or after your float. Arrive early for your appointment as you will need to shower before entering tank and afterwards. EFC provides soap, shampoo, conditioner, earplugs, head rest for the float, towels, etc. You may want to check locations for specifics, they differ in services, prices and facility prep.

As we enter summers last month, with vacation travels tapering, HU-Healthy series continues our highlight of Dr. Josh Axe’s top seven reasons why HUmic Acid MINERAL.
I just finished a 3-state customer visit trip to the Midwest. As I sat in airports and boarded planes, I was reminded of the daily planet pollutions we take in and the free radicals we are exposed to daily. Great timing, as we look at FREE RADICAL DAMAGE AND INFLAMMATION and how HUmic Acid MINERAL is an effective antioxidant and electrolyte.
We all have FREE RADICALS living inside of us. “They have roles for fighting pathogens (pathogens or infectious agents are a biological agent that causes disease or illness to its host), supplying energy and regulating hormones. However, too many FREE RADICALs, speeds up the aging process and results in disease formation. The combination of our exposure to environmental pollutants, low nutrient intake, and harmful activities like smoking, too much UV light exposure and eating processed foods (a major cause of weight gain), has created a big problem in regard to raising free radical damage. Body weight is impacted not only by what people eat and how much they exercise, but also by our lifestyle and environment.”
HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL contains antioxidants that counter the effects of free radicals and also help detoxify the body of many toxins that contribute to the problem: chemicals used in agriculture, radioactive waste and heavy metals, for example. It also helps extend the permeability and life of cells by providing electrolytes that have numerous functions within the heart, muscles, brain and digestive tract.
A Little More on Gut Health –
America’s culture of prescription drugs plays a role in weight management – and also affects gut health. Antibiotics, are the most-prescribed medication in America. Nearly 70% of Americans are on at least one prescription drug and more than half, on two. Antidepressants are the second-most prescribed drug in the U.S., and many of those drugs have been linked to weight gain.
Antibiotics contribute to weight gain and other health issues, such as LEAKY GUT SYNDROME and ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE, thanks to their effect on gut health. Antibiotics are prescribed to rid the body of bad bacteria. However, in the process, they wipe out the good bacteria, this is why antibiotics can be dangerous. Good bacteria, also known as probiotics, are integral to GOOD GUT HEALTH and maintaining a healthy balance between good and bad bacteria.

The impact of HUmic and Fulvic Acids on the dynamic properties of Liposome Membranes: the ESR method.
1Institute of Physics, Opole University , Opole , Poland .
This paper presents the results of research on the influence of two fractions of humic substances (HS): fulvic acids (FA) and humic acids (HA), as a function of concentration, on the liposome membranes formed from egg yolk lecithin (EYL). The concentration of HS in relation to EYL changed from 0% to 10% by weight. The influence of HS on various areas of membranes: interphase water-lipid, in the lipid layer just below the polar part of the membrane and in the middle of the lipid bilayer, was investigated by different spin labels (TEMPO, DOXYL 5, DOXYL 16). The study showed that HA slightly decreased the fluidity of the analyzed membranes on the surface layer, while FA significantly liquidated the center of the lipid bilayer. The strong effect of both fractions of HS on the concentration of free radicals as a function of time was also described.

With summer in full swing we continue our HU-Healthy series highlighting Dr. Josh Axe’s top seven reasons why to use HUmic Acid MINERAL.
In the last few HU Healthy Shares, we learned how HUmic Acid MINERAL is good for digestion, a good gut, collagen and improving energy. This month we look at DETOXIFICATION with HUmic Acid MINERAL and Zeolite Detox.
Within the environment, HUmic/fulvic Acid MINERAL is found not only in soil and rocks, but also streams, lakes and ocean water. HUmic Acids form complexes with ions that are commonly found in the environment, creating tight HUmic colloid bonds that help with water filtering, agriculture processes and detoxification. The presence of carboxylate and phenolates within HUmic Acids gives them the ability to act like natural chelators, which means they form chemical complexes that are important for regulating bioavailability of metal ions like iron, calcium, magnesium and copper within the human body and environment.
Studies have found that HUmic Acids have ion-selective electrodes that can be used for attracting heavy metals – even for filtering soils and water because they help bind to things like copper and iron. Research shows they’re even effective at geochemical processing of soils and aquatic environments at much lower concentrations than other types of compounds.
Chelation therapy is considered an alternative medicine for removing “heavy metals” and toxins from the body.
Why would someone experience heavy metal toxicity? Heavy metals are more common than you think. If you have mercury fillings in your teeth, been vaccinated to prevent various diseases, eat farm-raised fish, consume foods that are grown in foreign countries (like China) that are not organic, been treated with radiation or chemotherapy treatments, in essence if you are breathing, you’re likely experiencing some heavy metal toxicity.
Chelation therapy involves a chemical solution called EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), which is administered into the body – usually directly injected into the bloodstream – so it can bind with excess minerals. Once bound to “toxins” in the body, EDTA helps detox the body, by removing toxins before imbalances and illnesses can develop.
The Uncomplicated Daily Cleanse (no restroom issues, no diet changes, no mixing, no measuring). HUmineral Raw Liquid ZEOLITE Daily DETOX/CLEANSE, volcanic ash, forms a molecular trap that has the ability to selectively sort molecules, based on size. It is particularly well suited to capture inorganic metal ions in its lattice work structure. Zeolites have been used in industry, animal husbandry and human nutrition for decades due to this quality.
Extra Benefit: A daily detox that allows you to stay dedicated to your daily activities, without monitoring/substituting diets or restroom locale. Children to adult.
What does ZEOLITE do for the body?
The body, under normal conditions, picks up through food, the environment and various other sources of contamination, heavy metals that are not in an organic form which can be assimilated and/or excreted by the body. These metals can have toxic effects and may act as destructive free radicals. Zeolite has been shown to capture and help eliminate these inorganic metal ions through the body’s normal detoxification process.
HUmineral ZEOLITE – A Dual Benefit!
HUmineral Raw Liquid ZEOLITE is a combination product. While supplying Zeolite to help remove potentially toxic metal ions from the body, it also contains HUmates supplying some 80 MAJOR & Trace Organic MINERALS in organic form which replenish necessary minerals to the cell, restoring balance the body.

Effect of HUmic and fulvic acid concentrations and ionic strength on copper and lead binding.
- 1Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Grabenstrasse 3, CH-8952 Schlieren, Switzerland. email@example.com
We investigated the influence of humic and fulvic acid concentration (in the range of 1-1000 mg/L) on the binding of the two trace metals Cu(II) and Pb(II). The ability of the non-ideal competitive adsorption (NICA)-Donnan model to correctly predict Cu and Pb binding at low humic or fulvic acid concentration and lower ionic strength (0.01 M NaNO3), based on model parameters obtained from experiments conducted at high humic or fulvic acid concentrations (approximately 1000 mg/L) and higher ionic strength (0.1 M NaNO3), was tested. The binding of Cu and Pb to humic and fulvic acid in 0.01 M NaNO3 was determined over wide ranges in proton and metal ion activities using three different methods: ligand exchange-adsorptive differential pulse cathodic stripping voltammetry at low humic or fulvic acid concentrations (1-3 mg/L), differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry at intermediate humic or fulvic acid concentrations (10-20 mg/L), and ion-selective electrodes at high humic or fulvic acid concentrations (approximately 1000 mg/L). The results demonstrate that binding isotherms for Cu and Pb can be measured at low humic or fulvic acid concentration using suitable voltammetric techniques. The binding isotherms for Cu and Pb to humic and fulvic acid obtained at constant pH values in the range of pH 4-8 are shown to be independent of humic and fulvic acid concentration. The NICA-Donnan model, calibrated for Cu and Pb binding using data measured at high humic and fulvic acid concentrations and an ionic strength of 0.1 M, accurately predicts Cu and Pb binding at low humic and fulvic acid concentrations and lower ionic strength (0.01 M). We conclude that NICA-Donnan parameters obtained by fitting experimental data measured with ion-selective electrodes at high humic or fulvic acid concentrations can be used for geochemical modeling of soils and aquatic environments with much lower concentrations of humic or fulvic acids.

Humic/Fulvic Acid Mineral not only provides raw nutrients, but also transports minerals to the cell more effectively, boosting the absorption rate of the nutrients by making cell more permeable and fights inflammation within the digestive organs.
Humic mineral provides the body with an ideal form of major and trace minerals that can be easily absorbed and utilized by the body. As with anything the body doesn’t need or can’t use right away, it either stores the excess or excretes it.

COGNITIVE HEALTH PROTECTION
A 2011 study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that humic/fulvic acid has several antioxidant, Nutriceutical properties with potential activity to protect cognitive impairments, including Alzheimer’s disease. A contributing factor to the development of cognitive disorders is free radical damage and also a type of protein called tau, but studies show that humic/fulvic acid helps lower the length of tau fibrils and their morphology, disassembling their performance and stopping disease progression. The researchers concluded that humic/fulvic acid is likely to provide new insights in the development of potential natural treatments for Alzheimer’s disease.
What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that progressively causes memory loss, dementia, and early mortality. Memory loss is caused when plaque forms in the brain. There are several theories including free radical damage, an inability to use glucose properly, vitamin deficiencies, or environmental toxins. This illness affects over half of people over 85 in the United States. The good news, there are Alzheimer’s natural treatments that can effectively improve this condition.
Healthy Food Choices For Alzheimer’s Disease
Organic, Unprocessed Foods – Make sure diet includes plenty of “real foods”. Vegetables and clean meats, fruit in moderation.
Antioxidants such as; Vitamins A, C, E – There may be some connection between free radicals and Alzheimer’s. Antioxidants help combat damage caused by free radicals. Colorful fruits/vegetables are high in antioxidants and should be consumed at every meal.
Wild-caught Fish – A great source for Omega-3 fats, DHA specifically which are critical for brain health.
Foods high in Zinc – Many people with Alzheimer’s are deficient in zinc. Foods high in zinc include pumpkin seeds, grass-fed beef, and dark chocolate.
Coconut oil – Coconut oil provides brain with ketones, brain can use instead of glucose.
Food Items to AVOID
Any food containing Toxins or Additives (processed foods) – These foods can possibly be neurotoxic. One of the causes of Alzheimer’s may be chemicals or toxins in food.
Alcohol – Alcohol is a toxin and can cause brain cells to die faster than normal.
Tap Water – Tap water may contain environmental toxins, select purified bottled water instead.
Sugar/Refined Grains – Alzheimer’s may be caused by insulin resistance, similar to diabetes, therefore keeping insulin low by eliminating sugar/refined grains an important component in maintaining brain health.
Foods packaged in Aluminum Containers – Aluminum is neurotoxic at high levels, best to avoid.
Alzheimers – Natural Healthy Remedies
1. Fish Oil high DHA (1,000mg daily), Critical for brain function/reduces inflammation.
2. Vitamin D3 (5,000 IU daily). Required for brain function.
3. CoQ10 (200mg daily), CoQ10 decreases as we age. Ubiquenol, another good option.
4. Ginkgo Biloba (120 mg daily, Improve brain circulation/memory.
5. Phosphatidylserine (300 mg daily), Improves brain cell communication.
6. Astaxanthin, carotenoid antioxidant in wild caught salmon (2-4g 2x daily), supports brain health.

Humic/Fulvic Acid inhibits aggregation and promotes disassembly of tau fibrils associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Author: 1International Center for Biomedicine (ICC), University of Chile, Ñuñoa, Santiago, Chile.
Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder involving extracellular plaques (amyloid-β) and intracellular tangles of tau protein. Recently, tangle formation has been identified as a major event involved in the neurodegenerative process, due to the conversion of either soluble peptides or oligomers into insoluble filaments. At present, the current therapeutic strategies are aimed at natural phytocomplexes and polyphenolics compounds able to either inhibit the formation of tau filaments or disaggregate them. However, only a few polyphenolic molecules have emerged to prevent tau aggregation, and natural drugs targeting tau have not been approved yet. Fulvic acid, a humic substance, has several nutraceutical properties with potential activity to protect cognitive impairment. In this work we provide evidence to show that the aggregation process of tau protein, forming paired helical filaments (PHFs) in vitro, is inhibited by fulvic acid affecting the length of fibrils and their morphology. In addition, we investigated whether fulvic acid is capable of disassembling preformed PHFs. We show that the fulvic acid is an active compound against preformed fibrils affecting the whole structure by diminishing length of PHFs and probably acting at the hydrophobic level, as we observed by atomic force techniques. Thus, fulvic acid is likely to provide new insights in the development of potential treatments for Alzheimer’s disease using natural products.

Tau proteins (or τ proteins, after the Greek letter by that name) are proteins that stabilize microtubules. They are abundant in neurons of the central nervous system and are less common elsewhere, but are also expressed at very low levels in CNS astrocytes and oligodendrocytes. Pathologies and dementias of the nervous system such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease  are associated with tau proteins that have become defective and no longer stabilize microtubules properly. The tau proteins are the product of alternative splicing from a single gene that in humans is designated MAPT (microtubule-associated protein tau) and is located on chromosome 17.[3 They were discovered in 1975 in Marc Kirschners laboratory at Princeton University. 
Life Changing Benefits/Uses of HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL (reported by Dr. Josh Axe)
In our last HU Healthy Share, we dealt with Gut Health and Immune Function and how Humic/Fulvic acids contain a plethora of nutrients that improve gut health, including: major and trace minerals, electrolytes, fatty acids, silica (which boosts collagen synthesis), prebiotics and probiotics. These help nourish the digestive tract and also boost the ability of “good bacteria” to repopulate and form a healthy “microbiome” environment. Maintaining a healthy intestinal tract is critical for avoiding digestive problems.
We continue our mission of “healthy at ALL stages”, through nutrition; specifically the power of HUMIC MINERAL nutrition. PLANTS ARE FOOD – Humic MINERAL is a FOOD in supplement form, nourishing and hydrating. HUmineral product is 100% chemical free, non-ingredient diluted, USA product, vegan, gluten, dairy, soy and SUGAR free and non-GMO.
This month we bring you information from Dr. Josh Axe on his reports on Digestion and Nutrient Absorption and the associated health benefits of HUmic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL.
Boost Digestion and Nutrient Absorption
Acquiring enough electrolytes and other trace minerals is important for proper metabolic functions, digestive health and nutrient assimilation. HUmic Acid supplies both MAJOR and Trace plant-based mineral. Organisms we obtain from humic/fulvic acid can be taken in small doses and still cause fast, significant improvements in the ratio of bacteria living in the gut, helping lower many unwanted digestive symptoms like constipation, bloating, diarrhea and food sensitivities. Constipation is slower than normal movement of food waste through the digestive tract. Generally accompanied by a variety of symptoms such as bloating, gas, back pain, fatigue.
Besides providing raw nutrients, humic/fulvic acid transports minerals and other nutrients to cells more effectively, boosts absorption rate of nutrients by making cells more permeable, and fights inflammation within the digestive organs.
Another benefit of taking humic/fulvic acid as a supplement is that it helps restore the body’s optimal pH level. The minerals in Humic/Fulvic Acid MINERAL are used by the body to maintain the proper pH balance so the body does not become too acidic. Humic Acids may also be able to help prevent long-term illnesses from developing and improve defense against harmful bacteria, fungus, yeast and other organisms.
We need a strong digestive system to build immunity, help control hormone production, regulate our appetite, reduce our stress response and much more.
HUmineral Humic Acid Mineral products are 100% RAW, Chemical free (no chemical washing or stripping), undiluted, USA product. Vegan, Gluten, Soy, Dairy, Nut, Wheat, Sugar FREE, and non-GMO. Available: Liquid, Vegetarian Capsule and a Face/Skin/Hair Body SKIN SPRAY for all ages. We also carry ZEOLITE raw liquid w/HUmic added (a dual product).
When the body metabolizes food (especially proteins) it tends to go acidic. Minerals are what keep the body in the proper pH balance. The major minerals that do the work are calcium and magnesium (which is why older people tend to get osteoporosis – because their bones are stripped trying to keep their body in pH balance). HUmineral non ingredient diluted Humic products carries both these minerals and understands how the body needs to use them.
pH – Unhealthy pH is an imbalance of acidity and alkalinity that allows unhealthy organisms to flourish, damages tissues and organs and compromises the immune system.
Constipation – The main and most common causes for constipation are a potassium deficiency, and low fiber and water diet. Magnesium is needed to retain potassium so taking magnesium (or Humic Acid which has a complete MINERAL table) will solve both, a magnesium and potassium deficiency because you’ll start to retain the potassium you get from your food. Also contributing factors of constipation: stress, inactivity, certain medications, an imbalance in intestinal flora, thyroid problems.

Improving Gut Health and Immune Function
Humic and Fulvic acids contain a plethora of nutrients that improves gut health, including: trace minerals, electrolytes, fatty acids, silica (which boosts collagen synthesis), pre-biotics and probiotics. These help nourish the digestive tract and also boost the ability of “good bacteria” to repopulate and form a healthy “microbiome” environment. We need a strong digestive system to build immunity, help control hormone production, regulate our appetite, reduce our stress response and much more. As a result of gut permeability (when particles are able to escape through the gut lining and enter the bloodstream where they should not normally be), inflammation is triggered and autoimmune reactions can occur. There is some evidence that consuming humic/fulvic acid mineral promotes a healthy intestinal tract and immune system (digestive disorders and other issues, including: SIBO symptoms, small intestine bacterial overgrowth, inflammatory bowel disorders, bacterial infections (respiratory, urinary tract, etc.), or the flu and common colds.

HUmic Hydration for Nutrient Absorption
Healthy tips to experience more sunshine days and less anxiety.
Seasonal Affective Disorder, S.A.D. This is a vitamin D deficiency. We only make vitamin D from late March through October depending on where we live. Between October and the end of March, the suns rays are too low in the sky for us to make our own.
Those of darker toned complexion and those living in the Northeast U.S. are the most prone to the condition but nearly everyone gets it because we can only store 3 months worth of vitamin D in our bodies. So, by the end of December through March everyone is deficient. One of the deficiency symptoms of vitamin D is depression.
The highest rate of broken bones occurs during this December-March window, despite the fact that there’s less out-door activities during this time. This is also the time when most suicides occur, January through March.
5-HTP:(5-Hydroxy-tryptophan) – A naturally occurring amino acid and precursor; and metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters, serotonin and melatonin, from Tryptophan. Serotonin levels in the nervous system are essential for many aspects of our daily lives: responsible for feelings of well being and normal sleep patterns. Serotonin plays an important role in controlling anger, aggression, body temperature, mood, sleep, human sexuality, appetite, and metabolism. Obesity, PMS, migraines, depression, anxiety, insomnia and addictive behavior have all been associated with low levels of serotonin.
So, if you have ever experienced the rush of nonstop “to do’s” syndrome: never enough time between work, kids, family, school activity, traffic clog, getting car serviced, going through divorce, planning a graduation, a dinner party or a trip and you find yourself having a “less than sunny” moment, day or week (because we all do at times), pick up bottle of 5-HTP, and Vitamin D for your cupboard. Usually 4,000 IU per day is good. Take your Vitamin D with a meal that contains some fat. If you don’t take them with a meal that contains fat, they won’t absorb properly. Usually you will notice a difference within a few days.
**If you are one that takes pharmaceutical anti-depressants, (SSRIs), such as Prozac, Lexapro, etc., you should NOT supplement with 5-HTP as it could result in too much serotonin in your system.
**HUmineral HUmic Mineral aids absorption. See our BLOG on water, collagen, absorption and hydration.
