Humic acid is a chemical that is created when plants decompose. It's used in the production of medicine. Humic acid is used to boost the immune system and cure viral diseases like the flu (influenza), avian flu, swine flu, and others.

A typical humic material is a mixture of numerous molecules, some of which are connected together and some of which are based on a theme of aromatic nuclei with phenolic and carboxylic substituents; the figure depicts a typical structure. Phenolic and carboxylic groups are the functional groups that contribute the most to the surface charge and reactivity of humic compounds. Humic Acids act like a mixture of dibasic acids, with a pK1 value of roughly 4 for carboxyl group protonation and around 8 for phenolate group protonation. Individual humic acids share a lot of similarities in terms of structure. As a result, pK values measured for a specific sample are average values for the constituent species. The charge density is another significant property.
