KK  Humic/Fulvic
Unparalleled Mineral Absorption
Unequaled Healing Potential!

What is humic acid and fulvic acid? What secrets do they hold for health and wellness?

In order to understand what they are and the potential they hold, we will look at the following 11 areas. We will use the most current research to shed light on each of these subjects.  There will be a link at the bottom of this page to an in-depth article.
  • Ancient Origins: humic acid (HA) and fulvic acid (FA) have a long history as part of a powerful traditional remedy
  • Nutrient Dense: HA and FA contain over 70 minerals and trace elements
  • Ultra-Bioavailability: the minerals in HA and FA are more bioavailable than other forms because of their physical properties 
  • Anti-inflammatory: the properties that allow HA and FA to help with pain and inflammation
  • Microbial Defense: the antimicrobial capabilities of HA and FA 
  • ​Immunity Enhancers: the potential of HA and FA to enhance immunity
  • ​Antitoxins: HA and FA have antitoxic and anti-mutagenic potential and act as natural chelators 
  • ​Bone & Blood Health: HA and FA aid in bone and blood cell formation 
  • Nutrient Transport: FA has the potential to act as a carrier molecule 
  • Brain Health: the neurological potential of HA and FA
  • ​Cancer Fighter: the cancer fighting capacity of HA and FA
The KetoKerri Brand was created by Kerri Rivera, the Internationally Recognized Autism Author, to make Premium Products available at fair prices for the many people seeking health worldwide. Kerri advocates the Keto Diet and so the name KetoKerri was born. KetoKerri is Revolutionizing the Supplement Industry one product at a time.
The medicinal qualities exhibited by the ancient remedy Shilajit are due to the presence of Humic acid (HA) and fulvic acid (FA). (1,2,3) Shilajit has been used in oriental medicine for centuries to treat cold stress, diabetes, skin diseases, rheumatic pain, kidney stones, heart ailments, leprosy, and immune system diseases. (4,5)  Shilajit has also been a constituent remedy for millennia in ancient Indian Ayurveda medicine. (6,7) In both cases it is HA and FA that have provided the benefit derived from Shilajit
As a general rule, HA and FA contain upwards of 70 minerals and trace elements depending on the specific geologic location from which they are sourced. They also contain phytonutrients and other beneficial substances. (8)
The form the minerals and trace elements take in HA and FA make them more bioavailable than other forms. Both HA and FA dissolve and bind minerals for greater bioavailability. The size of FA allows it to penetrate cell walls and transport the minerals into the interior of the cells. This makes FA completely unique in its ability to transport nutrients into cells. (8,9,10,11,12,13,14)
HA and FA have
Anti-inflammatory properties (15,16)
Powerful Antioxidant properties (17,18)
Antiallergenic properties (19)

FA has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties (20,21).
HA has antiviral properties (22,23).
HA can inhibit the mutagenic nature of hydrocarbons and pathogens (24).
HA and FA increase different types of white blood cells. These include macrophages, neutrophils, and killer T-cells (25,26).
The adsorbent capabilities for poisons and mutagen molecules of both HA and FA may explain their antitoxic and desmutagenic effects (27,28,29). Adsorbents draw toxins out.
Both HA and FA stimulate bone growth on transplanted bones (30). FA helps iron absorption making it bioavailable for bone marrow to use in blood formation (31). HA shortened prothrombin time and inhibited plasma protein C activity, both of which aid in blood clotting (32,33).
HA and FA have been used as internal treatment for gastritis, diarrhea, stomach ulcers (antiulcerogenic and antistress activity), dysentery, colitis, and diabetes mellitus (34). HA and FA have been used as external treatment for hematoma, phlebitis, desmorrhexis, myogelosis, arthrosis, polyarthritis, osteoarthritis, and osteochondrosis (35).
The 2011 article "Fulvic Acid Inhibits Aggregation and
Promotes Disassembly of Tau Fibrils Associated with Alzheimer’s Disease" found that FA can prevent tau self-aggregation into pathological filaments and thus has Alzheimer preventive potential (36). The 2012 article "Shilajit: A Natural Phytocomplex with
Potential Procognitive Activity" demonstrates HA and FA have cognitive and memory enhancing capabilities as part of Shilajit (37). 
The 2012 article "Shilajit: A Humic Matter Panacea for Cancer" chronicles the cancer preventive properties of HA and FA as the main active ingredients in Shilajit (38). The article further expounds the role the above established properties of HA and FA can play in cancer fighting (39).
Characteristics and Potential Benefits of KK Humic/Fulvic:
  • Source: KK Humic/Fulvic Minerals & Electrolytes™ is an organically extracted liquid fulvic-humic acid from raw natural humates. Our supplier's testing calculates the HA at 22% and the FA at 25%. The fulvic-humic acid from our supplier is certified organic by the USDA, the Canadian Organic Foods Program, The European Union Organic Foods Program, and the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture (Organic Foods program). It is then bottled in an FDA cGMP compliant facility in the United States.
  • Nutrient Dense: KK Humic/Fulvic Minerals & Electrolyes™ contains more than 70 minerals and trace elements that provide the essential nutrition necessary for cell health, cell balance, cell growth, and replication.
  • Ultra-Bioavailibility: The minerals and trace elements are polyelectrolytes and supramolecular structures. The unique nature of these colloids diffuse easily through membranes, e.g. cell walls, when all other colloids do not. This makes the minerals, trace elements, and phytonutrients more bioavailable than other forms.
  • ​Anti-Inflammatory: HA and FA have anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Microbial Mutagenic Defense: FA has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties while HA has antiviral and anti-mutagenic properties.
  • Immunity Enhancers: HA and FA increase different types of white blood cells. These include macrophages, neutrophils, and killer T-cells
  • Antitoxins: HA and FA have adsorbent capabilities for poisons and mutagen molecules as well as chelation abilities.
  • Bone & Blood Health: HA and FA support bone growth. FA can help facilitate blood cell formation.
  • Internal & External Applications: HA and FA have been used both internally and externally to treat numerous conditions.
  • ​Brain Health: HA and FA have the potential to aid in memory and brain function. FA has the potential to aid in preventing Alzheimer's Disease.
  • Cancer Fighter: HA and FA have cancer preventive and cancer fighting potential.
