Humic acids are the organic components of soil, peats, brown coals, shales, and lake sediments, formed from decomposed plant material. They are complex, long-chain molecules, varying in molecular weight from 5,000 to 50,000 daltons. Humic substances are the most abundant source of non-living organic material found in nature.
The humic acid utilized in Humic-Monolaurin Complex undergoes a specialized proprietary extraction and purification process, and has an average size of about 50,000 Daltons. These large molecules are very flexible and have enhanced conformation and attachment capacities. This humic acid can bind to cell surfaces with no adverse effects on the cell itself or on cell growth, and can stimulate normal, healthy resistance and immune response.
Monolaurin is made from lauric acid, a saturated fatty acid that comprises approximately 50% of the fatty acid content of coconut oil. Lauric acid makes up 6% of the fatty acid content found in human breast milk, and 3% of that found in cow’s milk and goat’s milk. Monolaurin may help boost the immune system. Humic-Monolaurin Complex also contains a standardized extract of olive tree leaves (Olea europa), with a minimum of 15% oleuropein, the bitter principle of olives, and Russian Choice Immune®, a lysate powder made from cell wall fragments of Lactobacillus rhamnosus. These lactobacillus cell wall fragments have shown significant immune system supporting properties.
