Fulvic acid is good stuff -- powerful antioxidant, boosts energy, reduces inflammation, reduces toxicity, a good adjunct to opioid pain meds, issues many Lymies struggle with.

My trouble tolerating it is getting it past my heartburn. The company I'm dealing with (Wujisan) says they've never had anybody else struggle with this issue, even other people who have hiatal hernia and GERD issues.

Fulvic acid's pH isn't high, around 4.0, and Wujisan describes it as a "weak" organic acid. Even so, it bothers my heartburn. Once again, I'm an anomaly.

Thought about mixing it with baking soda when taking it, but there are websites that say that fulvic acid that's been rendered pH neutral loses it's therapeutic value. Also, baking soda lowers stomach acid, and mine is low anyway.

Might be able to tolerate it from the other end in an enema, but retention enemas can be time-consuming, fussy, and can have varying absorption rates from enema to enema. Not impossible, but not my first choice. My daily regimen doesn't need to be more complicated.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Anybody who helps me with this question will at least make my Xmas card list, if not get an email video of my Happy Dance.

I'm still afraid of taking fulvic or humic acids...

I don't have heart burn, but it feels very wrong to take them..

I know they should be healing, but so far, I haven't found any product that I can take.

I have been throwing the whole bottles, when the expiration date finishes...

If you find any you can take, please let me know!!!

Fulvic acid was a disaster for me many years ago - I never want to encounter that again.

It "reads" well but in a human being, just on my experience with it, I'd say if it's causing any trouble at all to stay far away from it. Do not try to find some other way to inflict it upon yourself.

There are always other ways to approach that will work well with the body.

I couldn't take it either.

Opinions, not medical advice!
