What are Humates?
65 million years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, the vegetation was lush, green and rich in humates (humic acid, fulvic acid, organic compounds bound to70+ trace minerals). During this time, a deep black mixture was teeming in the fertile soil. Why was the soil so dark? This is because it was rich in humate compounds. Since that ancient time, humates, remains of all life, have been trapped deep within the geological strata, in area specific to the southwest.
Why Does Fertile Soil Need Humates?
Soil is the primary source of trace minerals. When the soil is depleted in humates, plant life can not readily absorb inorganic trace minerals. Humates are the organic substrates that allow plant life to absorb critical trace minerals and other nutrients. Likewise, humans and other living creatures need the soil to be rich in humates in order to survive and remain healthy. Humates were one of the first organic acids that that bonded with trace minerals.
Why is the condition of soil so important now?
In order to compensate for the lack of minerals in the soil, many large agricultural businesses likely over treat farmlands with artificial fertilizers to enhance volume of produce. Although output remains high, produce lacks many of the nutrients vital to health.
The Need for Trace Mineral Supplementation
Soil around the world has lost essential trace mineral content, potentially causing dangerously low levels in fruits and vegetables. It is speculated that lowered levels of trace minerals in soil may be at the very root of the 21st century health challenges. Linus Pauling, twice Nobel-prize winner stated that "You can trace every health condition to a mineral deficiency." Yet, all over the world, minerals are disappearing from agricultural soil at an alarming rate. In 1992, the official report of the Rio Earth Summit concluded "there is deep concern over continuing major declines in the mineral values in farm and range soils throughout the world." This statement was based on data showing that over the last 100 years, average mineral levels in agricultural soils had fallen worldwide – by 72% in the US and 76% Europe. Further, The SEER (Sustainable Ecological Earth Regeneration) Center, which undertook the first scientifically controlled field trials of soil demineralization in Scotland, says that unless vital nutrients and elements are placed back into the soil, the quality of food - and the well-being of the planet - will deteriorate.

Are Planet Minerals Trace Minerals in an Ionic Form?
Technically, in order to create an ion mineral water, the water source must first be treated with an acid. And in doing so, the essential nutrients in the humates and trace minerals can be destroyed.
How are Planet Minerals Humates Treated
Plant Minerals humic and fulvic acids are extracted deep within the soil, in a specific pristine dark vein within the earth from 65 million years ago. In this form, the humic acid is at a minimum, 95%. They never use chemical acids to abstract the vital components. Neither are they exposed to heat or pressure. Therefore, the valuable humic acid bound to the trace minerals are not destroyed.
Why are Plant Minerals Trace Minerals Bonded to Humates?
Humates and fulvates are fully functional organic electrolytes. As a result, they also assist in the making the trace minerals more bioavailable through their special bonding properties. This is a breakthough in trace mineral supplementation!
What are Humates?
Humic and fulvic acids are the principal components of organic humates. They were formed by nature over 65 million years ago by the breakdown of plants and other living things. Humic and fulvic acids are found in specific geological formations, fresh water lakes and ocean water. Humates are a complex mixture of many different organic acids containing antioxidant corboxyl and phenholic groups. The humates in our products have a PH of 7, which is neutral. In agriculture, humates are used to enrich the soil. When humic and fulvic acids are present, plant life and produce thrives.
Are Humates Good for the Immune System?
National Institutes of Health, one of the world's foremost medical research centers, has sponsored studies to research the immune activity of humic acid. Early indicators suggest that humic acid may play an important role in supporting multiple mechanisms of the immune system.
How does Wellness byEarth support the Immune System?
Humic and fulvic acids contain powerful antioxidants called polyphenols. Research shows there is a direct link to antioxidant nutrition and immune health. Further, the formula contains nutrients cysteine, glutamine and selenium. They are vital building blocks for the antioxidant glutathione peroxidase which helps to rally the immune defense response.Vitamin D3 has receptors on virtually every type of cell involved with immunity. Resveratrol may also help to support the body’s healthy inflammatory response when the immune system is undergoing stress.
What are the Benefits of Mega Humic & Fulvic by Earth Liquid?
Each ½ tablespoon contains 2,000 mg of humic and fulvic organic acids. At this time, the product contains the highest levels available. The fast acting liquid concentrate is very beneficial when your natural resistance is challenged.
What is Zeolite+ byEarth?
Zeolite is a volcanic mineral which is created when ash and lava from a volcano has a chemical reaction with sea water. The result is a compound with a cage-like structure that carries a negative charge. The negative charge acts like a magnet to attract positively charged compounds. It is hypothesized these compounds are trapped in its cage-like structure and carried out of the body. We use the micronized powder form of Zeolite which is the form shown effective in all of the scientific studies. Planet Minerals Zeolite + also contains humic & fulvic acids plus 70+ trace minerals.
What are the Benefits of the Mineral Skin Spray by Earth?

Is Planet Earth in Jeopardy?
Plant Minerals believes in the innate intelligence of the planet which provides amazing sources of beneficial compounds to sustain your health. They also are quite aware that humans often take this beautiful blue and green globe for granted. Pollution caused by humans is a constantly increasing danger for people and the environment alike. It’s a fact that the majority of scientists are very concerned about the environmental impact of global warming. As an example of significant climate change, the US had its hottest recorded summer in 2010. And who will ever forget the blizzards of December 2010 that shut down most of the US and European air transportation? All this leads to environmental stressors that may have significant health consequences.
- Polluted Air & Water: People drive cars everywhere, even when they can share a ride. Americans are deeply dependent on foreign oil to meet an ever increasing gasoline and energy needs. Pollutant emissions fill our air as smog. Clean drinking water has become a scarcity in third world countries. Economists predict Blue Gold will become the most expensive and rare commodity, due to the shortage of available drinking water across the globe. As a nation, Americans drink more bottled water than any other country. The lifeless, petroleum based empty bottles are jammed into landfills which never break down. If all the disposed plastic bottles were lined up from end to end, they would circle around the sacred earth three times. Further, the largest oil spill recorded in the US, caused by the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig released over 4 million barrels of heavy viscous oil. The horrific spill contaminated pristine sites and beaches inducing enormous damage to marine wildlife. It will be many years before the full health treats are fully know.
- Depleted Soil: Unfortunately, it is documented that soil contains the lowest levels of nutrients and trace minerals than ever before. After years of over farming and heavy fertilizer use, the soil loses all of its good, wholesome virtues. Vitally important soil microbes that break down minerals into a form useable by the body are lost. Vitamin and mineral levels are drastically reduced, and the soil is basically burned out. Unfortunately, even when the soil is burnt out, farmers can still grow good-looking fruits and vegetables by using high doses of fertilizer. The fruit and vegetables will have good caloric content but very little in the form of real nutrition. Most produce sold now falls under this category. You think, as you are purchasing a head of broccoli or a bag of apples that you are doing your body a big, nutritious favor. In reality you are receiving half the nutrition you think, if not empty calories.
Is Soil Affected by Pollution?
The effect of pollution on soil has been less that optimal for the health of the planet and healthy bodies. Among the most significant soil contaminants are hydrocarbons, heavy metals, MTBE, herbicides, pesticides, and chlorinated hydrocarbons. This type of contamination typically arises from the rupture of underground storage tanks, application of pesticides, and percolation of contaminated surface water to subsurface strata, oil and fuel dumping, leaching of wastes from landfills or direct discharge of industrial wastes to the soil. This occurrence of this phenomenon is correlated with the degree of industrialization and intensities of chemical usage.
