Nature's Help Healing Earth Humid Acid Plus OptiMSM
Description & Features
Healing Earth™ by Nature’s Help® for natural joint pain relief:
Healing Earth™ combines the traditional healing powers of Humic Acids with
the modern clinical benefits of OptiMSM® to relieve osteoarthritic pain.
WHY ARE HUMIC ACIDS IMPORTANT
Humic Acids – Anti-inflammatory from the earth
Humic and Fulvic Acids are complex organic substances found in humates which are formed in deep, ancient soils through the natural microbial humification of plant matter. Well-known for boosting new plant growth, Humic Acids have also been used in traditional therapies to treat human inflammatory conditions for over 3,000 years. Science is only now recognizing the benefits of Humic Acids for human health, with recent studies confirming their ability to significantly relieve osteoarthritic joint pain and positively impact the digestive microbiome.
Humic Acids have been shown to:
- Reduce knee osteoarthritic knee pain and improve physical functioning(1,2)
- Inhibit the release of inflammatory cytokines(1)
- Reduce CRP (C-Reactive Proteins) associated with inflammation(1,2)
- Optimize the delivery of poorly absorbed nutrients (eg. Beta carotene)(3)
- Increase the concentration of key friendly bacteria in the gut by 20-30%(4)
- Alleviate allergic rhinitis symptoms(5)
- Act as antioxidants(3)
The related soil compound, Fulvic Acid, is a chelator that helps make minerals transferable to living organisms and helps to detoxify heavy metals.Healing Earth™ is formulated with a high-quality potassium humate material containing over 70% Humic Acids, 20% Fulvic Acids and 70+ trace minerals and elements, including potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, boron and carbon. This humate material is tested by independent laboratories to be safe from heavy metals and microbial contamination.Another nutrient found in soil, MSM, can be an effective complementary ingredient to Humic and Fulvic Acids.
WHAT IS MSM
MSM – The “miracle” organic sulfur
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a bioavailable form of sulfur naturally found in plants, fruits and soil. It is a part of the Earth’s sulfur cycle, which involves sulfur compounds being absorbed by marine plants, expelled to the atmosphere, then returned to the soil by rain for use by terrestrial plants.
Sulfur is an essential mineral for life. It plays a role in the health of joints, connective tissues, skin, hair and nails. As in the case of Humic Acids, modern farming has caused a sulfur deficiency in our soils and food. Humans get most of their sulfur through amino acids found in proteins, such as methionine and cysteine. Studies suggest these sources are insufficient, especially in seniors.(6) MSM offers a well utilized source of organic sulfur.
Healing Earth™ features the premium source of MSM known as OptiMSM®. OptiMSM® is produced in the USA to an industry-leading 99.9% purity level through a proprietary distillation process.
Backed by a dozen clinical studies, OptiMSM® is by far the most researched form of MSM on the market. These studies confirm its efficacy for:
- Joint support – Reduced pain in osteoarthritis of the knee and improved physical function(7,8)
- Exercise recovery – Lowered pain and inflammation after exercise(9)
- Allergy relief – Multiple studies have shown improvement in reducing inflammatory cytokines and reducing upper respiratory symptoms(9,10,11)
- Skin health – A recent study showed improvements in skin appearance and condition(12)
MSM TOGETHER WITH HUMIC ACIDS
Why MSM with Humic Acids?
Both Humic Acids and MSM are taken up by plants from soil and water for growth. Both are also natural sources of minerals. Humic Acids contain 70+ minerals including potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, boron and silicon, while MSM is a potent source of organic sulfur. In combining these two ingredients in one supplement, your body has access to a complete range of natural digestible minerals. Minerals need to be taken together for best effect – they work synergistically for healing.
Humic Acids and MSM are believed to have similar modes of action – alleviating inflammatory conditions by inhibiting the production of cytokines(1,10,11).
MSM also acts as a nutrient delivery system. MSM has shown the ability for increasing the permeability of other nutrients when taken at the same time(13). Healing Earth™ is the only supplement that combines MSM with Humic Acids to optimize the absorption of its wide variety of nutrients.
Both Humic Acids and OptiMSM® have very established safety profiles for human health use.
