The mean microbial concentration after 45 d of supplementation of humic acids increased 14% in the essential groups (P < 0.01), 28% (NS) in the individual pioneer groups and 41% (P < 0.002) in the individual substantial groups. The accidental bacterial groups with initially marginal concentrations demonstrated no response to humic acids. The response to humic acids […]
Humic substances are complex organic substances of soil, which are formed in the process of humification. Humification involves natural chemical and microbial activity that transforms the dead remains of living things into humic substances.
The sum concentration of colonic microbiota increased from 20% at day 10 to 30% by day 31 and remained stable until day 45 (32%) of humic acid supplementation (P < 0.001). The increase in the concentrations in each person was due to growth of preexisting groups. The individual microbial profile of the patients remained unchanged. Similarly, […]
