Humic acid is a natural substance that is found in soil, sediment, and water. It is formed from the decay of plant and animal matter and is known for its ability to bind to heavy metals and other toxins. In recent years, there has been increasing interest in the potential health benefits of humic acid, including its possible antiviral effects.
One proposed mechanism by which humic acid may block viruses is by interfering with their ability to bind to host cells. Viruses typically use specific receptors on host cells to gain entry and begin infecting the cell. Humic acid may be able to block these receptors, preventing the virus from attaching to and infecting the cell.
Another proposed mechanism is that humic acid may stimulate the immune system, making it better equipped to fight off viral infections. Humic acid has been shown to enhance the activity of natural killer cells, which play a key role in the body's defense against viruses and other pathogens.
