Minerals are very important. Dr Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes stated:
“You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment, ultimately to a mineral deficiency.”
Scientists have known for years that everyone requires at least 90 nutrients to maintain optimal health. These nutrients include 17 vitamins, 59 minerals, 12 amino acids and three essential fatty acids.
Whilst nature has provided us with all these nutrients to enable us to live a long and healthy life, unfortunately the processing of foods and the depletion of nutrients in our soils are some of the biggest reasons for nutrient deficiencies within our bodies.
Fortunately, scientists have found that Fulvic acid makes nutrients more available from the food we ingest and thus corrects deficiencies quickly and safely.
Fulvic acid is the element found in humus, the highly nutritious layer of the earth. Partially decomposed matter is the basis of humus and peat. It is this highly nutritious layer that feeds plants and ensures that they grow strong and healthy.
Fulvic acid is created in extremely small amounts by millions of beneficial microbes that work on the decaying plant matter. It combines with a variety of minerals to create a complex molecular compound.
Fulvic acid works to activate the nutrients within soil so that they can be utilised by the cells of plants. It is often termed ‘nature’s miracle molecule’ and for good reason.
Unfortunately, modern farming practices have destroyed our soils, leaving them devoid of minerals and have thus disrupted the proliferation of this miracle molecule in the soil, and therefore in vegetation and animals – in effect within our food.
What are the benefits of Fulvic acid?
In addition to enhancing the absorption of vitamins and minerals in our body, Fulvic acid acts as a catalyst. A catalyst is a compound that facilitates a chemical reaction.
There are literally thousands of chemical reactions that take place every minute in our bodies involving enzyme production, the movement of nutrients in and out of our cells, digestion, and so forth.
In majority of cases, these reactions could simply not take place at normal body temperature or would take a long period of time. Fulvic acid acts like a catalyst in these reactions facilitating all these processes quickly and effectively.
Fulvic acid is a natural, powerful antioxidant and helps to neutralise free radicals. Free radicals are harmful, highly reactive compounds that cause the destruction of soft tissues, encouraging cell mutations, altering genes, disrupting chemical and hormonal reactions within our bodies, destroying the optimal function of our glands and thus making us more susceptible to disease. This is one of the most widely acceptable theories of ageing and disease.
When we ingest food, our digestive system, when working at optimum capacity, releases enzymes which work to break down food efficiently in order to release nutrients from food. Without these enzymes, food would not be broken down, stagnate in the stomach and gut, which would ultimately lead to toxin build-up. Fulvic acid helps to activate these digestive enzymes, which are the life force of our bodies.
Fulvic acid is highly effective at neutralising and detoxifying harmful toxins and pollutants including heavy metals such as lead and mercury. Fulvic acid bonds with these heavy metals, a process called ‘chelation’, and then converts them into inactive compounds, which can be eliminated through normal excretory processes.
Fulvic acid is reported to increase oxygenation of all the soft tissues within our bodies. Oxygenating the cells is vital because it enhances energy production and counters numerous concerns. In 1931, the Nobel Prize Winner for physiology and medicine, Dr Otto Warburg established that oxygen deprivation was a major cause of cell mutation. Taking Fulvic acid will help increase oxygenation of our cells and hopefully protect the genetic material within our cells.
Fulvic acid will help the body to heal, renew, and restore.
