It’s a bird, no it’s a plane, no it’s the fulvic phenomenon! Often called ‘nature’s miracle molecule’ and considered 'the ultimate nutrient booster’, fulvic acid offers many health benefits to plants, people and animals.
Plenty of our gardening and lawn loving friends will already be familiar with fulvic acid and its perks. But if you’ve been limiting fulvic acid to your backyard, you might be interested to know there are a variety of products containing this miracle molecule that offer a multitude of benefits.
As a naturally occurring organic acid found in humus, the highly nutritious layer of decomposing earth, fulvic acid is produced when organic plant matter decomposes, and millions of beneficial healthy bacteria are released. Fulvic acid is commonly associated with humic acid, as they are both types of humic substances that come from humus. However, in this blog our focus is on fulvic.
Known as a vehicle for vitamins and minerals, fulvic acid helps absorb and put nutrients to better use. Would you believe that just one single fulvic acid molecule is capable of carrying 60 or more minerals and trace elements directly to the cells? Well believe it, because it’s true!
How does fulvic acid work?
Fulvic acid is quite a unique organism that is able to pass through cellular membranes with ease, thus boosting the absorption and assimilation of other nutrients and minerals. Naturally high in electrolytes, antioxidants and a balanced amount of chelated minerals, fulvic acid boasts many health benefits including improving gut health, detoxification and increasing nutrient absorption.
How do we consume fulvic?
In general, we consume fulvic acid when we eat vegetables, as the humus layer feeds and provides nutrients to plants and produce, ensuring a strong and healthy growth.
However, due to modern farming practices, fertilisers and pesticides, the humus layer is gradually withdrawing, leaving us lacking fulvic acid in soil and produce.
Is fulvic acid good for gut health?
Fulvic acid is a collective of vitamins and nutrients that improve gut health, including trace elements, nutrients, electrolytes, probiotics, prebiotics, fatty acids and silica.
Fulvic acid supercharges good bacteria, enabling it to repopulate and form a healthy microbiome environment. In turn, having a strong digestive system helps strengthen our immunity, manage hormone production, regulate appetite and much more.
Fulvic acid – organic electrolyte
Think of fulvic acid like tiny battery chargers, providing a constant charge for each cell and restoring and maintaining the maximum electrical potential. According to research done by Doctors Across Borders, studies have revealed that as an organic electrolyte, fulvic acid activates and energises almost every biological process in the body.
An electrolyte is a substance capable of conducting an electric current when dissolved in water. This helps maintain water levels, deliver nutrients and rebuild and restore tissues. As an incredibly powerful electrolyte, fulvic acid helps water enter cells at a quicker rate, balancing hydration and mineral levels in humans, plants, animals and microbes.
Super cell conductor
We don’t say super lightly, as an active chemical compound, fulvic acid is a natural nutrient carrier, helping absorb and deliver vitamins such as probiotics, antioxidants, fatty acids and minerals.
When minerals and trace elements come into contact with fulvic Acid, they dissolve into a form that makes them more active and readily available to the subject, whether human, animal or plant. Additionally, fulvic Acid makes cells more receptive to these nutrients, enhancing the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
As a natural form of chelation therapy, think of this as a fancy scientific term for one molecule bonding with another, fulvic acid is a very effective form of detoxification. Fulvic acid bonds with toxins and heavy metals such as lead and mercury, converting them into inactive compounds and then allowing your body to eliminate them through normal excretory processes.
How to use fulvic acid
Just in case we haven’t already made it clear, fulvic acid can be used on and benefits plants, animals and people, you just have to get the right product for the right purpose.
Remember it’s important to read the dosage amounts and get the correct type of product depending on what you are using it for.
Another thing to keep in mind when taking or giving fulvic acid is that you should avoid mixing with chlorinated water (such as tap water), as chlorine reacts to the organic substances in the acid.
Fulvic Acid for plants and lawns
In nature, fulvic acid helps nutrients and minerals absorb through a plant’s cell walls. Although plants are able to make many of their own vitamins, fulvic acid acts as a supplement, greatly increasing the nutrient uptake.
Fulvic Acid for pets
The benefits of fulvic acid also apply to the animal kingdom, improving overall health, immunity, digestion and muscles and joints. It might be gross, but have you ever noticed your dog or cat eating dirt or their own waste? Well, this is how they instinctually get the minerals that their bodies are craving.
Try eliminating this habit by adding our FHC (Fulvic Humic Concentrate) to your pet’s food daily, giving them all the vitamins and minerals they need.
Fulvic Acid for people
Fulvic acid really is a miracle molecule improving gut health, immunity, digestion and nutrient absorption and that’s not the last of its long list of benefits.
If you’re after the ultimate nutrient booster, want a to try a detox and/or are interested in improving your gut health give our FHC (Fulvic Humic Concentrate) a try.
Another indirect, but effective way to get fulvic acid is through consuming organic produce. Try buying organic foods, otherwise you could always start your own vegetable patch and ensure the soil is rich in nutrients by using one of our fulvic acid-based fertilisers.
We do sell a wide variety of fulvic acid products tailored to human, animal and plant health, so if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
