Fulvic Acid – The Natural Antifungal

Fulvic Acid – The Natural Antifungal

Fulvic Acid, a natural plant extract found in ancient sea beds, has many uses in the human body. One important function of fulvic is that of an antifungal agent. Fungus not only includes mold, but also the spores mold uses to regenerate and the mycotoxins it emits.

Mold is very hazardous to human health. The more mold exposed to, and the longer one is exposed to mold, drastically compounds the deadly effects of this fungus. Low exposure to mold will induce allergic and asthmatic-type reactions. In 1999, a study conducted by the Mayo Clinic charged fungus as the cause of almost all chronic sinusitis cases in America, a total of which is around 37 million.

What is mold, and how does it affect you?

Molds are microscopic fungi, which are neither plants nor animals. In nature, molds use enzymes to eat dead plants and animals. If there is a moist environment and other proper conditions, molds can attack materials in a house or building such as fiberboard, drywall, carpet backing, paper, dust, wood, or exposed soils in crawlspaces. Once established in a building, molds/fungi can spread, destroying structural wood components, and can be hard to get rid of.

Mold releases spores, which act as fertilized eggs, attaching to wet surfaces and breeding. Their food source is diverse, ranging from sulfur grains in concrete to metals in paint, or glue in wallpaper. Any toxic substance not useable by the mold spore is filtered through the spore and released into the air as a gas.

Mold and mold spores both release mycotoxins, which are by-products produced by fungi. Mycotoxins are as diverse and varied as the mold that produces them, but their affect ranges from carcinogenic and oestrogenic (which describes the ability of a substance to promote or mimic the effect of the female hormone estrogen) to neurotoxic and immunosuppressive.

The effects of mold include allergic reactions such as respiratory problems such as coughing, sneezing, wheezing, and infection; nose and throat irritation; nasal or sinus congestion; and common allergy symptoms such as red, itchy, watery eyes; and a runny nose. Other symptoms include fatigue and headache.

People allergic to mold may often exhibit asthmatic symptoms and attacks when exposed to mold. Some types of fungus can cause more severe problems, for example, conjunctivitis, rhinitis, bronchitis, and hypersensitivity pneumonia.

Those with weak immune systems are more vulnerable to infections caused by molds. One condition which affects immune-suppressed patients actually manifests itself as a mold growth in the lungs.

Other complaints that have been caused by mold exposure include depression, irritability, anger, inability to concentrate, loss of appetite, sleep disorders, and muscular aches.

Physical ailments associated with mold exposure include vomiting, diarrhea, ear infections, shortness of breath, congestion, and hives.

Some molds are actually good for you, and not toxic at all. But many are. It is important to keep your body fungus-free to promote a healthy lifestyle. The fact that Fulvic is such a strong anti-fungal, in combination with many other amazing features, makes it the perfect choice to eliminate fungus from your body.
