In prehistoric times, the Earth’s soil was exceptionally fertile and was rich in minerals, trace elements and rich humus soil teaming with microbes. Prehistoric vegetation too was very lush and abundant and left behind unusual remains known as humic deposits.
Humic deposits did not turn into oil or coal because they were not exposed to the same tremendous pressures. Such deposits are exceedingly rich in a little known substance called fulvic acid.
Fulvic acid is an amazing natural substance that is created naturally in very small amounts thanks to the action of millions of microbes working on decaying plant matter, plants themselves or ancient deposits of plant origin in soil that contains enough oxygen.
According to health experts, fulvic acid contains vast amounts of naturally occurring biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, free-radical scavengers, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids as well as natural antibiotics, antivirals and fungicides.
Fulvic acid is also able to bind up to 60 minerals and trace elements into its molecular structure causing them to become mobilized fulvic complexes. Plant roots and cells absorb micronutrients bound to fulvic acid complexes - in fact, fulvic acid complexes are absolutely essential for plant health.
Anecdotal claims of health benefits seen with fulvic acid consumption have been remarkable. Many of these show that fulvic acid may prevent disease and dramatically increase longevity.
Experts who study fulvic acid tell us that it is one of the finest natural electrolytes known to man. It helps with enzyme and hormone production
and is necessary for proper vitamin utilization. It has been found to be essential to living cells in carrying on their daily metabolic process.
Fulvic acid is also one of the most powerful natural antioxidants and free radical scavengers known. It has the unique ability to react with both negatively and positively charged unpaired electrons and render free radicals harmless.
Fulvic acid can also scavenge heavy metals, detoxify pollutants and help to correct cellular imbalances.
Scientists say that we need 90 different nutrients in our diets, of which over 60 are minerals and trace elements. Unfortunately, we are not getting them today from the plants we eat because our soils are depleted thanks to poor agricultural practices, pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and erosion. Our plants today contain much less nutrition than they used to, especially minerals.
Experts feel that re-mineralization of soils would be of little benefit without the addition of fulvic acid and a return to better farming practices. Re-mineralization of our bodies without the fulvic acid that should be contained in the plants we eat has not changed things much either.
These experts believe that fulvic acid supplementation and a return to proper diet and farming practices is the only way to reverse this unhealthy situation. One major problem is that fulvic acids are not clearly defined because of their extremely complex nature.
