Fulvic Acid - The Missing Link in Human Nutrition

Scientists have revealed that there is a “missing link” in our food chain, and that we’re paying a tremendous price, healthwise, for that absence. That “missing link” is Fulvic acid. Though virtually unknown until very recently in the west, it enjoyed a long period of use in the east where it was employed for natural health and wellness. There are no substances more vital to life, beside oxygen and water, than the biologically-derived compounds known as "Fulvic acids,” nor none as miraculous.


Fulvic acid(s) is the end-product of nature’s humification process; the final stage of decomposition of all once-living matter, especially plants. Fulvic acid(s) contain ALL of the phyto-chemical protective substances: amino acid peptides, nucleic acids, etc., from the original plant matter, highly concentrated and refined. They have been transformed, and enhanced by the actions of billions upon billions of microscopic plants, such as yeasts, algae,and fungi. This makes it the most HIGHLY REFINED, natural water-soluble substance on earth, and nature’s most important form of protection and defense for plants, animals . . .and mankind!

Fulvic acids enter into all life processes within plants and animals, performing multitudes of functions. When necessary, they act as free-radical scavengers, supply vital electrolytes, enhance transport, and increase assimilation of vitamins and essential major and trace elements, dissolving them into the simplest ionic form, absorbing them into the fulvic structure, finally transporting them through membranes and cell walls. They also catalyze enzyme reactions, stimulate metabolism, make water wetter, and demonstrate amazing capacity for electro-chemical balance, among many actions. through many stages of decomposition. As these substances are recycled, they continually become smaller and smaller, and more refined(naturally). At the very last, they become water soluble, and turn into Fulvic acid(s). The plant defense mechanisms that ultimately become Fulvic acid(s) last indefinitely, remaining intact, never breaking down or being used up. Over time they simply become more highly refined and take on "unusual properties" as materialized defense mechanisms.

These protective substances are tiny fragments of DNA, nucleic acids, and amino acids, and ionic minerals, building blocks of Fulvic acid(s). They have imparted health and longevity to every generation of living organism along their path of existence, and they continue, even now, to pass it on to us. When Fulvic acid(s) is dissolved and combined with water, the water is literally transformed. It’s molecular structure is changed, and it becomes more organized. Scientists have witnessed that the water becomes “energized”, and is able to transmit unusual biological “messages” to living organisms. Many scientists describe this phenomenon as “memory.” It is the informational distillate of that accumulated biological experience.

The frequency signatures of accumulated knowledge and experience are indelibly etched within the fulvic acid(s) refined molecular structure, along with remnants of DNA from past invaders. Fulvic acid appears to be “alive” with nature’s very own energy, and it is intimately tied to the very spark of life - the reason we catalog it as a "living food." It is perhaps the worlds most complex enzyme, complete with life-like qualities and function. In essence, it is “nourishment” from the Creator, meant to give life, energy, health, and renewal to the entire earth; animals, humans, plants, and all living organisms. If it is not alive in the technical sense, it is an energetic structure that makes life possible. Thousands of scientific studies exist proving fulvic acid's role and function in cleansing the entire surface of the earth from pollution, pesticides and toxins of all kinds. To prove the principle, witness how Russian scientists used fulvic acid(s) to assist in the clean-up the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, including the soil,animals, and people exposed to the radiation. Literally hundreds of scientific research studies from around the world attest to the benefits of this miraculous substance as, “incredible”,“amazing”, “miraculous”, “magical”, and “phenomenal.”

Fulvic acid is created by microbial activity at the roots of plants. It’s function is to dissolve and convert the metallic and clay-based mineral molecules found in soils into a form that is usable by plants, animals and humans. Once the minerals are dissolved, plants will uptake through their root system the powerful fulvic acid substance that is gorged with dissolved minerals and trace elements. Fulvic acid has over 77 Macro and Trace Minerals, naturally occurring in their ionic (nano) form for ultimate absorption. Supplements high in fulvic acid content come from ancient deposits of lush plant matter that existed long before chemicals, pesticides, and other harmful substances did. The source of the fulvic acid in today’s plant-derived mineral products (if any) dictates the fulvic acid concentration, and can vary from deposits to deposit, similar to the way minerals are found in veins throughout the world. Our deposits are selected from the southwest United States, known to be the location of some of the richest humates in the world, and reputed to exceed the quality and purity of the famous Shilajit variety of Asia.

Originally, nature made fulvic acid abundantly available and obtainable, but like so many things, man has interfered with this vital process, and it is no longer available in sufficient quantities in the food we consume. Modern U.S. agricultural practices within the last 75 years have nearly eradicated all naturally occurring Complex Ionic Trace Minerals found in Fulvic Ionic Minerals out of our soil. In doing so, we have eliminated these naturally occurring, indispensable elements from completely out of our diet, and as a result modern foods contain little, if any, of this miracle molecule. Unless you are fortunate enough to organically grow your own foods, supplementation is an absolute necessity. The seriousness of this dilemma can be found in his statement made in 1991 by former Surgeon General, C. Everett Koop; “Fifteen out of every twenty one deaths in America is nutrition-related.”

Fulvic acid can destroy acid in the body fluids, increasing the amount of oxygen. For this reason, Fulvic Acid will alkaline faster than any other natural health product on earth. 

Fulvic acid has the ability to complex and remove heavy metals, herbicides, radioactive elements, and other pollutants, either altering them into usable compounds or eliminating them as waste. Because fulvic acid(s) are organic, they will not build up, as do metallic and clay-based minerals. When metals, minerals and trace elements become “complexed” into fulvic acid(s), they take on an entirely new property of availability, quite unlike their original form. Cells, when presented with various fulvic acid(s)complexes, have the ability to accept or reject the minerals, including aluminum, lead, arsenic, mercury, etc, at their discretion. This is very significant, because, while the minerals might not be necessary to nourish the cells, they may be needed to act as electrodes, essential for bio-reactions, electron transfer, catalytic reactions and transmutations.

Another “unusual property” is the fact that Fulvic acid(s) carries both a negative and a positive charge, and can behave as an electron donor or receptor, depending on the need. If the individual cell is restored to its normal chemical balance and electrical potential, we have given cells new life, where death and disintegration would have occurred. Fulvic Acid could have the potential to return peak performance.

Tiny amounts of Fulvic Acid remarkably transform the molecular structure of water, making it intensely more active and penetrable. Additionally, it assists water in its job of dissolving and transporting, helping to carry nutrients in and waste products away, while also helping to neutralize toxins, invaders, and heavy metals. As a result of these extraordinary properties, it is believed by some that all homeopathic remedies should contain Fulvic Acid in order to enhance their action.

SAFETY - Pharmaceutical companies and private researchers in many nations have done considerable work in the area of safety testing of humic and fulvic acids for human medical use. High quality fulvic acid preparations have been proven to be effective, safe, and non-toxic for human internal and external uses. Extensive medical studies show that the toxicity of naturally-occurring fulvic acids is remarkable low, and are neither carcinogenic nor mutagenic. Regarding it’s safety where children are concerned, studies have reported prenatal embryo toxic or fetus developmental malformation effects have not been observed with fulvic preparations at daily dose levels from 5-50 milligrams per kilogram embryo or body weight. Topical preparations are exceptionally safe and are tolerated remarkably well.

Unfortunately, Fulvic Acid is still not well known or understood by most of the scientific and medical community. Chemists have not been able to synthesize it or clearly define it. Why? Because it is the smallest, most complex, most highly refined, naturally occurring, water-soluble substance on Earth! The Pharmaceutical/Nutraceutical industry simply cannot perfectly replicate what Nature has done.

Even when minerals are supplemented, most preparations are only minutely bioavailable. In other words, our bodies cannot properly absorb the minerals. Humic Acid not only contains all the minerals our bodies need, but, more importantly, the Humic Acids and Fulvic Acids in our mixture enable these minerals to be absorbed. Technically, these acids consist of "negatively charged metal-complexing ligands," which act as ion-exchangers, releasing metal ions of low atomic mass and chelating heavier metals.

What this means for us is that Humic Acids and Fulvic Acid complexes enhance mineral and trace element uptake, helping us to maintain mineral and trace element balances  without threat of toxicity. Whenever minerals come in contact with Fulvic Acid in a water medium, they are naturally dissolved into ionic form. These minerals literally become part of the Fulvic Acid itself. Once the minerals meld into the Fulvic Acid complex, they are now bioactive, bioavailable, and organic.

Perhaps we may finally benefit completely from the profound insight of two time Nobel Prize winner and renowned scientist, Dr. Linus Pauling, who testified before the 74th Congress of the United States back in 1936: "Every ailment, every sickness, and every disease can be traced back to an organic mineral deficiency."

Humic Acids and Fulvic Acid Complexes show great promise to be the answer to the 21st-Century Nutritional Challenge.
