What is Fulvic Acid?
Fulvic acid is the element found in humates, the highly nutritious layer of the earth formed over millions of years of compression. Within humic substances, fulvic acid works to activate the nutrients within soil so that they can be better utilized by plants. Like its action in soil, once extracted, fulvic acid serves as an essential vehicle that carries vitamins and minerals to the right places within our bodies.
Over the past several decades, scientific research has uncovered more information about how fulvic acid can improve human health and bodily functions, by:
The unique composition of fulvic acid is that it is highly bioavailable, with the ability to penetrate cell membranes, so that all of its nutrients reach your body. From here, fulvic acid is able to feed your cells, improving mitochondrial metabolism (energy production) in the process.
The Importance of Ionic Minerals
Minerals are the basic building blocks for proper nutrition and health, all tissue and internal fluids contain minerals: bones, teeth, soft tissue, muscle, blood and nerve cells. Without them, other nutrients are unable to function properly and, the end result is often, serious mineral deficiencies.
A major concern is that throughout the last several centuries, and especially over the course of the last 50 years, the mineral content in our food supply has been severely altered or diminished. Due to widespread use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in agriculture, much of the earth’s soil has been depleted of essential nutrients. Therefore, produce grown in these soils do not provide the right levels of major and minor minerals needed for good health.
Though other factors such as stress, disease, and certain medications can decrease the absorption of minerals in the body, there is a viable solution: taking a mineral supplement in ionic form. When a solid substance has achieved an ionic state, it has reached its smallest molecular composition. This form is easily absorbed by the body and is extremely bioavailable at the cellular level.
This is an advantage over colloidal minerals, a term that means solids are “suspended” in liquid. If particles are suspended, they are left standing and some will eventually separate, while others will remain in permanent suspension. These minerals, due to their large molecular size, are not as readily absorbed, evenly distributed, or fully transported throughout the body.
