In the Madre de Dios region of Peru, gold mining has been going on for several years with the use of various toxic substances and heavy metals. These substances enter the environment and the food chain of people living in the area. The accumulation of heavy metals in the body often causes health problems. One of the properties of humic acids is the ability to bind heavy metals to themselves, including in the digestive tract of humans and animals, thus helping the body’s detoxification. That’s why Dr. Rafael Pizarro Alvis is making great efforts to get nutritional supplements based on humic acids into this area.
