Nature’s #1 Electrolyte
Though virtually unknown to modern culture, there is perhaps no plant derived substance more beneficial to life than fulvic acid. Like Hydrogen and nothing else in nature, it can flip between a positive or negative polarity, meaning it can increase transport of nutrients and assimilation into the cell and attach to toxins many times larger and drag them out. It also functions as a catalyst of many enzyme reactions within plant and animal cells. It is complex molecule yet has a lower molecular weight than water, truly a most wondrous and unique food.
The conditions for fulvic acid to form are very rare. Essentially it is the concentrated essence of of ancient large leafed forests that has aged and transformed over eons of time. A inland sea drying and becoming a temperate deciduous forest which decays into a bog and then gets covered over by volcanic ash. Fulvic acid exists at 1-15% in humic acids, which make up this rich organic tree compost that has matured and concentrated for hundreds of thousands of years. This living earth is rich in phytonutrients, plant sterols, aromatics, polyphenols, nucleic acids, peptides, beneficial microorganisms, humic, olmic and fulvic acid.
Were this material too close to the surface it would have eroded, buried too deep and it would become coal, so the fact that these deposits exist and the deposit mined and processed, and fulvic acid extracted, we have something that in very small quantities increases the growth of plants by 30-50%, and even at 50ppm in water, for our bodies is like winning the lottery.
This is the way nature intended, that a mighty virgin forest would be upcycled to provide a concentrated essence of vitality to future life.
If one looks at nature, one can see that fulvic acid is found at every step of the food chain. Like hydrogen, it sparks oxygen and gives energy to our every cell of our biology, with no side effects, contraindications, or toxicity. Mother Nature is the best pharmacist. Only common sense can write you a prescription.
The food we eat should be full of fulvic acid, but would you be surprised to find out it is not? The soil on 99% of farms today does not have it. Its an amendment that many know about and use it as their massive crop yield secret.
Who wants to go through life with an exotic sports car running cheap gasoline and 99 cent store motor oil? Further your precision powered machine doesn’t have power brakes, steering or air conditioning. This is you without the basic building blocks of life that nature made for you over hundreds of thousands of years and intends you to enjoy for your cells to function easier so that you may have a long virile life.
Evidence of medical use of fulvic acid goes back China in the 15th century Ming Dynasty where it was called Wu Jin San or “Golden Medicine”, where it was documented for use in the treatment of infectious ulcerous growth and female hemorrhage diseases as a blood coagulator and anti-inflammatory.
On top of the extensive Chinese, Japanese and Russian scientific research, an American, Dr. S. A. Visser in 1988 reviewed and reported on the medicinal value of humic substances in an article entitled: “Effects of humic substances on higher animals and man; the possible use of humic compounds in medical treatments”,
Dr. Visser stated that external applications of fulvic acid includes:
- Treating open wounds
- Healing burns with minimum pain or scarring
- Eliminating discoloration due to skin bruises
- Killing pathogens responsible for athlete’s foot
- Acting as a wide spectrum anti-microbial and fungicide
- Treating rashes and skin irritations
- Helping to heal cuts and abrasions
- Helping heal insect bites and spider bites
- Neutralizing poison ivy and poison oak
Internally, research shows fulvic acid:
- Is a powerful natural electrolyte
- Clathrates all monovalent and divalent metals
- Enhances nutrient uptake
- Transports nutrients
- Catalyzes enzyme reactions
- Stimulates metabolism
- Detoxifies pollutants
- Dissolves silica
- Catalyzes mineral function
- Enhances cell division and elongation
- Enhances the permeability of cell membranes
- Increases metabolism of proteins
- Catalyzes vitamins within the cell
- Complexes and dissolves minerals and trace elements
- Restores electrochemical balance
So where can you buy this dietary missing link? The truth is there are not many companies that offer the real thing.
Here’s a tip for selecting the right fulvic acid to take because there seems to be a lot of miseducation and confusion. In my experience most companies advertising fulvic acid are actually selling a humic acid with a very small fulvic fraction in it. A good rule of thumb is that if a product is advertised to contain minerals in addition to fulvic, then they don’t know the first thing about fulvic, which part of the magical benefit is how small the molecule is, complexed with larger minerals it dramatically loses its effect.
