What is Fulvic Acid?
Fulvic acids are formed over millions of years via microbial metabolism of decaying vegetation and they are involved in the same process which forms coal and, eventually, diamonds and is therefore an integral part of the carbon cycle.
Fulvic acid appears to be a truly remarkable nutrient with the ability to help prevent, or ameliorate the symptoms of, a number of common diseases when applied to any living thing. Fulvic acid removes the cause of the problem and returns our bodies, our pets or livestock and our plants to a state in which they were designed to work. Toxin free. Once toxins are allowed to build up, they can impair plant and animal cell function and cause disease.
Fulvic acid can also balance mineral deficiencies or excesses by evaluating the needs of the cell, thus providing optimal nutrition required for healthy cellular processes, and reducing the risk of disease. The oxygen content of fulvic acid is also vital to its health giving properties and no other nutrient possesses and transports bio-available oxygen directly into our cells. It is this aspect of Fulvic Acid which allows it to be useful for athletes and sportspeople. Prolonged use of Fulvic Acid has allowed athletes to train harder and recover quicker due to a decreased oxygen debt following exercise and this same effect has been observed in race horses.
It is now thought that there is a direct link between the gradual loss of fulvic acid in our soils to the deterioration of human health and rise in non-communicable diseases over the last 50 years. The awareness and importance of re-introducing fulvic acid into our soils along with adopting an organic approach to agricultural practice has increased dramatically among scientists and food manufacturers are now fortifying products with fulvic acid in light of an increasing number of positive research articles regarding the importance of this nutrient to human, plant and animal health.
