Guard-Ion Immune Support & Skin Health
Fulvic Acid has been used to treat a variety of diseases, including skin conditions.
Certain skin conditions are a painful that result in patches of red, itchy, inflamed, cracked, and rough skin. At its worst, blisters can also occur. Sufferers are often desperate to find relief – but over the counter creams offer limited relief – and prescription drugs have dangerous side effects.
And both drugs and drug-store creams typically only treat the symptoms – and do not address the underlying cause – so it never really goes away.
However, there is a 100% natural substance – called Fulvic Acid – that treats the underlying causes of certain skin conditions, not just the symptoms. Fulvic acid works on a cellular level through rapid penetration and hydration to restore health to your skin.
According to The National Science Foundation, humans require at least 60 minerals and 12 essential amino acids for optimal health. Fulvic acid supplies these vital nutrients.
Fulvic acid keeps the blood and intercellular fluid in an alkaline state. Fulvic acids actually moves the body from an anaerobic “acid” environment (which causes inflammation, fermenting, molds and fungus) to an alkaline environment that is high in oxygen. By moving the body – and skin – from an acid state to an alkaline state, inflammation is reduced.
Fulvic acid, with its known anti-inflammatory properties and good safety profile, has the added benefit of being an acid. Reducing the pH of the skin may help relieve the itching during certain skin conditions.
People use fulvic acid for conditions such as allergies and inflammatory skin conditions
Fulvic acid products have potential anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacteiral benefits for the skin. They can tremendously help with inflammatory skin conditions.
Research from 2019 suggests fulvic acid is a useful option in managing inflammatory skin conditions.
Fulvic acid, have astringent activity — whereby skin cells contract — to promote:
• skin cleansing • tightening of pores • reducing oily secretions • decreasing itch and irritation
The compound also has a protective effect against ultraviolet radiation. Therefore, it may help slow down aging when used in skin care products.
Fulvic acid is an effective and well-tolerated option for the management of skin disorders.
As it is a natural substance fulvic acid may also be a suitable alternative for long-term, day-to-day use to assist with various types of skin conditions.
People with inflammatory conditions would benefit from taking fulvic acid as a supplement. These conditions may include:
• respiratory disorders • allergies • digestive disorders
An older study from 2011 concluded that fulvic acid as topical treatment was well-tolerated among participants with skin conditions.
Now, when you combine Fulvic acid with other compounds you can accelerate the self healing process.

Prunella vulgaris (Self-Heal)
Studies reveal that Prunella vulgaris show significant wound healing and anti-inflammatory activities.
Applied directly to your skin Self-Heal can accelerate wound healing through a variety of mechanisms.
For people with inflammatory skin conditions solutions containing echinacea extract may help. Early research shows that daily use of echinacea solutions helped soothe irritation caused by these skin conditions and also helped build up the protective outer layer of skin.
Echinacea purpurea-derived alkylamides exhibit potent anti-inflammatory effects and alleviate clinical symptoms of skin disorders
Rosemary has therapeutic properties and has been used in the folk medicine, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries, mainly for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which are attributed to the presence of carnosol/carnosic and ursolic acids.
Mice with atopic dermatitis that were topically treated with carnosol showed a significant reduction in skin lesions compared with the control animals.
Rosemary is composed of rosmarinic acid, betulinic acid, caffeic acid, ursolic acid, camphor, and carnosic acid. These acids give it powerful anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Since skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis can cause skin inflammation, it’s a great way to naturally bring relief.
Thyme is used for skin problems such as oily skin, acne, dermatitis, eczema, and insect bites.
Thyme’s anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties may help with skin conditions. It may help get rid of bacterial infections while also helping to reduce inflammation. As a result, it can help with the irritation and inflammation in various skin conditions
When used topically, Oregano can improve various skin conditions and assist with fungal infections, as it eliminates yeast, bacteria, and fungi.
Oregano has gained attention in the dermatological field due to the cosmeceutical potential correlated with the presence of thymol and carvacrol. As a result of the fulminant expansion of bacterial resistance to antibiotics and the aggressiveness of skin infections, Oregano was extensively studied for its antimicrobial activity against Staphyloccocus spp. and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Moreover, researchers have also assessed the anti-inflammatory activity of Oregano, suggesting its tissue remodeling and wound healing potential. Whereas Oregano comprises important biological activities that are used in a wide range of pathologies, recently, its oils have shown great potential in the development of new therapeutic alternatives for skin disorders.
Sage improves skin‘s appearance! Sage stimulates cell renewal and increases blood circulation. Sage's main ingredients Ursolic acid helps with skin disorders. Plus this acid exfoliates the skin and cleans it thoroughly due to its anti-septic behavior. It also gives sage its wound treatment properties because it’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial abilities.
Carnosic acid, found in sage, can be used to assist with UVA and UVB skin damage, which can also protect it from the future damage that can be done through sun over-exposure. Sage assists in improving acne, athlete’s foot and chapped skin, and relieving symptoms of various skin disorders. Oil from the leaf is often added to face and body washes, deodorants and anti-fungal creams due to its astringent properties.
Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil, may help improve facial skin and reduce inflammation.
One 2019 study highlighted tulsi’s ability to support healthy skin aging. The study found that when applied topically, tulsi provided “potent antioxidant activity”. Holy Basil inhibits IL-6 secretion and NF-κB expression with inhibition of collagenase, elastase, and hyaluronidase activities.
Tulsi may help with dry skin conditions. Its anti-inflammatory action may reduce irritation, redness, and swelling, soothing flare-ups and itchiness.
It is cooling and soothing in nature which enhances its excellent anti-inflammatory properties to work well in warding off skin irritations, small wounds and facial blemishes. Also rich in Vitamin C, it boosts skin cells metabolism and lend brighter complexion, firmness and elasticity to the skin. It's believed to benefit the skin and treat skin infections both internally and externally.
Lemon balm is also a popular natural treatment for several common skin conditions. As an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent, it helps to reduce the swelling and reddening of the skin that is common in many skin conditions.
Lemon balm may be considered as a candidate for the development of oral/topical photoprotective ingredients against UVB-induced skin damage.
Lemon balm dose-dependently suppressed glycation-associated reactions such as increased fluorescence, yellowing of collagen fiber sheets, and degeneration of the fibrous structure of elastin fiber sheets. As a result, skin elasticity was significantly improved.
Lemon balm has traditionally been applied for skin disorders and skin inflammation. Due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory effects, Lemon balm is effective in relieving many associated symptoms.
Historically, Chamomile has also been used for treatment of skin disorders. IgE, IgG, and histamine levels were significantly lowered in control groups through influencing of Th2 cell activation.
Chamomile regulated T-cell lymphatic subpopulations to inhibit the Th17 cell differentiation signaling pathway. This resulted in a reduction of interleukin 17 (IL-17), thereby inhibiting the activation of the nuclear factor kappa beta (NF-κB) and MAPK pathways, decreasing the secretion of the pro-inflammatory factors (tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) and interleukin 6 (IL-6)), and reducing inflammation involved with specific skin conditions.
Finally, the glycerin used for the extraction process is amazing for the skin. In skincare, glycerin's most popular use is as a humectant. Humectants are moisturizing ingredients that work by drawing water from the atmosphere to hydrate and soften the skin. Meaning it helps to lock moisture in the skin.
