The Differences between leonardite and humalite
Humalite is a name given to the humate material deposited in Alberta, Canada. It is singled out because the material has a different composition and is not derived from Lignite. It is derived from weathered sub-bituminous coal, and opposite of leonardite, it was formed in a fresh water environment, not a salt water one.
When humalite is harvested, the resulting final product averages 87% humic acid. Each batch is individually tested to ensure that it maintains the quality and guaranteed 80% humic acid content that it is known for. This means more humic and fulvic acid content, and considerably less of the undesired ash and heavy metals that are found in Leonardite. 1) Bacillus amyloliquefaciens is a non-pathogenic soil bacterium. Similar to other Bacillus species, B. amyloquefaciens is capable of producing endospores allowing it to survive for extended periods of time. The species also shows some antifungal properties/.
2) Bacillus brevis comes from the family of Bacillaceae belonging to the order Bacillales, class Bacilli and phylum Firmicutes of the kingdom Bacteria. The interest in Bacillus brevis started in the 1940's when Brevis strains were isolated to produce the antibiotic gramicidin.Bacillus brevis has many health benefits. These strains are known to inactivate the enterotoxins present in the body by blocking the adhesion sites from pathogens. They are known to improve the immune performance of the body against urinary tract infections and bowel bacterial overgrowth. A few strains of Bacillus brevis have also been found to address anomalies like hepatic encephalopathy and colon cancer. It is known to strongly protect the body against Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Some researchers have also reported their positive effect on autistic children. 3) B. clausii is a rod-shaped, Gram-positive, motile and spore-forming bacterium that lives in the soil. It is classified as probiotic microorganism that maintains a symbiotic relationship with the host organism. It is currently being studied in respiratory infections and some gastrointestinal disorders. Bacillus clausii has been found to produce antimicrobial substances that are active against gram positive bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecium and Clostridium difficile. 4) B. coagulans is a beneficial bacteria known as a probiotic. Found naturally in your intestines, probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that may promote health and protect against infections. Similar to Lactobacillus strains, B. coagulans is used to treat diarrhea and prevent candida infections. B. coagulans and other probiotic supplements while taking antibiotic medications is sometimes recommended to guard against gastrointestinal side effects and yeast infections. B. coagulans is believed to stimulate the immune system. 5) B. indicus can produce carotenoids, pigments which are the sources of the yellow, orange, and red colors of many plants, algae and photosynthetic bacteria. Many of these carotenoids have known health benefits and thus the potential to include this bacterium or its products in supplements and many processed foods is new and exciting to the food and supplement industries. 6) B. subtilis is a Gram-positive bacterium commonly found in soil and the gastrointestinal tract of ruminants (cattle, goats, sheep, giraffes, deer, gazelles, antelopes) and humans. Under the microscope, it is shaped like a rod and can protect itself by forming a tough coating called an endospore. B. subtilis is used primarily for two approaches to human health: the production of enzymes typically thought of as prebiotics (amylase), and beneficial probiotics that support both the local battle against GI diseases and the systemic control or prevention of infectionsI. 7) B. megaterium is a rod-like, Gram-positive, mainly aerobic spore forming bacterium found in widely diverse habitats. With a cell length of up to 4 µm and a diameter of 1.5 µm, B. megaterium is amongst the biggest known bacteria. The cells often occur in pairs and chains, where the cells are joined together by polysaccharides on the cell walls.In the 1960s, prior to the utilization of Bacillus subtilis for this purpose, B. megaterium was the main model organism among Gram-positive bacteria for intensive studies on biochemistry, sporulation and bacteriophages. Recently, its popularity has started increasing in the field of biotechnology for its recombinant protein production capacity. 8) B. polymixa is the potential probiotic species. Bacillus species are highly resistant to heat, sporeforming, and ideal food additives for animals. B. polymyxa has the ability to produce a large number of secretory proteins, enzymes and antimicrobial compounds (Bacteriocin). It is found in soil, plant tissues and marine sediments. 9) B. pumilus s a Gram-positive, aerobic, spore-forming bacillus commonly found in soil. Bacillus pumilus spores—with the exception of mutant strain ATCC 7061—generally show high resistance to environmental stresses, including UV light exposure, desiccation, and the presence of oxidizers such as hydrogen peroxide. Strains of B. pumilus found at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory were found to be particularly resistant to hydrogen peroxide. A strain of B. pumilus isolated from black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) was found to have high salt tolerance and to inhibit the growth of marine pathogens, including Vibrio alginolyticus, when cultured together.] 10) L. Acidophilus is the most researched and proven probiotic known to scientists. L. Acidophilus bacteria were first isolated in the 1890’s by the Nobel Prize winner Llya Metchnikoff. Since then thousands of research studies have proven that Lactobacillus acidophilus is vital to human health. Research in recent decades has confirmed that supplementing with acidophilus can treat helps our digestion and also treats diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), leaky gut syndrome and reduces lactose intolerance and increases our absorption of calcium, B vitamins and can even improve appetite.
11) L. bulgaricus can be found naturally in the gastrointestinal tract of mammals living the Balkan peninsula. One strain, Lactobacillus bulgaricus GLB44, is extracted from the leaves of the Galanthus nivalis (snowdrop flower) in Bulgaria. The bacterium is also grown artificially in many countries. In 2012 the Minister of State for Environment and Forests, upon public vote declared it as the "National Microbe of India. L. bulgaricus may reduce intestinal permeability decrease IBS symptoms help manage HIV symptoms decrease diarrhea (rotavirus and non-rotavirus) decrease nausea increase immune response lower total cholesterol lower LDL levels lower triglycerides inhibit viruses reduce salivary mutants in the mouth increase absorption of dairy (lactose) increase white blood cell counts after chemotherapy reduce intestinal bacteria.
12) L. plantarum (widespread member of the genus Lactobacillus) is one of the most studied species extensively used in food industry as probiotic microorganism and/or microbial starter. L. plantarum has significant antioxidant activities and also helps to maintain intestinal permeability. It is able to suppress the growth of gas-producing bacteria in the intestines and may benefit some patients who suffer from IBS. It helps to create microbe balance and stabilize digestive enzyme patterns. L. plantarum has been found in experiments to increase hippocampal brain derived neurotrophic factor, which means L. plantarum may have a beneficial role in the treatment of depression. The ability of L. plantarum to survive in the human gastro-intestinal tract makes it a possible in vivo delivery vehicle for therapeutic compounds or proteins.
13) L. Sporogenes was first isolated and described in 1993 by Russian scientists L.M. Horowitz-Wlassowa and N.W. Nowotelnow (Zentbl. F. Bakt., 1933) and the name was accepted in the fifth edition of Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology. L. Sporogenes produces only L(+) lactic acid and proliferates within the gastrointestinal tract in an non-invasive way characteristic of beneficial gastro-intestinal residents such as Lactobacillus Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium Bifidum. An L. Sporogenes product has received approval for the Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare, for improvement in symptoms caused by abnormalities in the intestinal flora or in dysbiosis. 14) Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast believed to be a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is likely effective for treating certain types of diarrhea. Saccharomyces boulardii is called a "probiotic," a friendly organism that helps to fight off "bad" organisms that might cause diseases. Saccharomyces boulardii is different from other strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, commonly known as brewer's yeast and baker's yeast. Saccharomyces boulardii is most commonly used for treating and preventing diarrhea, including rotaviral diarrhea in children. It has some evidence of use for other types of diarrhea, acne, and a digestive tract infection that can lead to ulcers.
15) Streptococcus Thermophilus is a powerful probiotic strain that has well researched health benefits. This probiotic is often found in the colon and has many digestive, immunity & many other researched health benefits. Streptococcus thermophilus also has a number of functional activities, such as production of extracellular polysaccharides, bacteriocins, and vitamins. In addition, it also has potential as a probiotic, as demonstrated by various health effects, transient survival, and moderate adherence in the gastrointestinal tract.
Moringa oleifera is a multi-purpose herbal plant used as human food and an alternative for medicinal purposes worldwide. It has been identified by researchers as a plant with numerous health benefits including nutritional and medicinal advantages. Moringa oleifera contains essential amino acids, carotenoids in leaves, and components with nutraceutical properties, supporting the idea of using this plant as a nutritional supplement or constituent in food preparation. Some nutritional evaluation has been carried out in leaves and stem. An important factor that accounts for the medicinal uses of Moringa oleifera is its very wide range of vital antioxidants, antibiotics and nutrients including vitamins and minerals. Almost all parts from Moringa can be used as a source for nutrition with other useful values.
Ashwagandha is an evergreen shrub that’s found in India, Africa, and parts of the Middle East. Ashwagandha has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine to increase energy, improve overall health and reduce inflammation, pain and anxiety. Ashwagandha contains chemicals that might help calm the brain, reduce swelling, lower blood pressure, and alter the immune system. Since ashwagandha is traditionally used as an adaptogen, it is used for many conditions related to stress. Adaptogens are believed to help the body resist physical and mental stress. Some of the conditions it is used for include insomnia, aging, anxiety and many others.
L-Cystine is a covalently linked dimeric nonessential amino acid formed by the oxidation of cysteineand the compound produced when two cysteine molecules linked by a disulfide (S-S) bond. Cystine is required for proper vitamin B6 utilization and is also helpful in the healing of burns and wounds, breaking down mucus deposits in illnesses such as bronchitis as well as cystic fibrosis. Cysteine also assists in the supply of insulin to the pancreas, which is needed for the assimilation of sugars and starches. It increases the level of glutathione in the lungs, liver, kidneys and bone marrow, and this may have an anti-aging effect on the body by reducing age-spots etc.
L-Glutamine may help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Tissues in the intestine use this amino acid as a fuel source to function well. L-glutamine also appears to have a role in maintaining proper barriers within the intestine. Studies have shown that L-glutamine can improve intestinal or gut permeability. This protects against unwanted toxins entering the digestive system.L-glutamine is considered one of the most important nutrients for healing of 'leaky gut syndrome' because it is the preferred fuel for enterocytes and colonocytes. Low level of serum Glutamine concentration correlated with intestinal barrier disruption, inflammation and diarrheal diseases among children
