Humic and Fulvic substances are made by friendly soil bacteria as they break down decomposing plant matter and contain the nutrients we need for optimal health. This “soup” of humic and fulvic molecules, trace minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and other phytonutrients is the backbone of plant and animal life. Plants receive nutrients through their roots as fulvic acid transports minerals throughout plant cells.
Our Humic & Fulvic is harvested from a pristine area of Northwest New Mexico known as the Fruitland Formation – an incredibly vast and unique area that was once a large Cretaceous estuary where fresh and saltwater met. The conditions here were ideal for incredibly rich and abundant plant life to thrive. More so, it allowed for a multitude of different plant species to prosper when they couldn’t at any other location on Earth.
The soils of the Fruitland Formation developed a rare and bountiful blend of phytonutrients and a full-spectrum mineral and element composition. Over time, these soils became the present-day nutrient-rich humate deposit unsurpassed by any other in the world.
It is with this exceptional raw humate material that we make our exquisite Fulvic 400X supplement. This near-impossible high-quality raw material is so perfect for human health it doesn’t require us to combine materials from various source locations around the world as many other leading fulvic acid products do. Even better, it isn’t derived from coal or shale.
We extract our raw material from the Earth with care to protect delicate molecule structures, maintain mineral content, and avoid potentially dangerous chemical contaminants and byproducts. This is achieved through mechanical grinding and pure water extraction.
All of our ingredients are tested for identity, purity, heavy metals, mineral concentrations, and microbial contamination.
Benefits of Humic & Fulvic
As the smallest of all humate molecules, fulvic is easily absorbed by our bodies despite being able to carry nutrients over 50 times its weight. These highly energized molecules are powerful antioxidants, quickly neutralizing free radicals and reducing the cellular damage that may occur. Fulvic can also donate its excess electrons to help recharge cellular membranes and increase each cell's ability to intake nutrients and expel toxins.
Humic Acid refers to all humate molecules. In this case, we are referring to all except fulvic. These larger molecules are not easily absorbed by the body, so they remain in our digestive tracts benefiting us in other ways.
Humic molecules act as prebiotic fibers feeding our beneficial bacteria and helping to keep our gut microbiome balanced. The molecules also excel at capturing toxins before our bodies can absorb them.
Have you ever read a really interesting article about the benefits of a particular nutrient and thought to yourself “maybe I should try that”?
We all have!
Unfortunately, where minerals are concerned, it may not be as easy as it seems. The various, complex mineral interactions and co-dependencies make it difficult to supplement either individually or in limited pairings.
Take a look at zinc. Zinc is a very popular supplement marketed to support our immune systems, promote radiant skin, and more, but there’s a problem.
If we take a zinc supplement at too high a dose or for too long, our copper levels could decline. As our copper deficiency increases, our iron levels can begin to drop as well. When we have an iron deficiency, our hemoglobin production is reduced (hemoglobin carries oxygen to our tissues). Thus, our well-intentioned desire for a stronger immune system by supplementing with zinc can indirectly cause anemia and extreme muscle fatigue.
Fulvic 400X provides 72+ macro, micro, and trace ionic minerals in amounts uniquely balanced for human health.
One supplement - Zero guesswork.
Each and every batch of our Fulvic 400X is tested to ensure "biochemical redox antioxidant support" – a fancy term to describe the benchmark of highly energetic and oxygenated substances. This is why fulvic is often referred to as the “Spark of Life”.
We all know our bodies need nutrients to function well, but our cells require electrical energy to maintain their structural integrity and use these nutrients in life-supporting biochemical processes. This energy must be balanced for cells to function optimally. Unfortunately, high stress and free radial exposure disrupt this balance leading to under-nourish cells and reduced energy production - symptoms we can all recognize as fatigue. Fortunately, highly energized fulvic molecules can supply electrons to depleted cells as needed. Now revitalized, these cells are better equipped to take in essential nutrients and release biochemical toxins and additional environmental contaminants so they can be safely removed from the body. Additionally, fulvic-supplied electrons support ATP energy production and neutralize damaging free radicals to help protect healthy cells and tissues.
Our crops simply do not have the nutritional content they once did!
For most of human history we receive humic and fulvic along with minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and more when we eat plant foods. Unfortunately, today's agricultural methods utilize heavy amounts of pesticides and herbicides. These chemicals, whether natural or synthetic, seep into the soil killing off the beneficial bacteria that create humic and fulvic and transform inorganic minerals into usable ionic forms. Worse, the lack of adequate crop rotation depletes mineral concentrations within the soil. These two factors combined lead to nutrient-deficient foods. This is further supported by USDA agricultural studies noting a significant decline in vitamin and mineral concentrations in our crops over the last 100 years.
Humic & Fulvic provide all 72+ macro, micro, and trace minerals in usable ionic forms our cells recognize.
Fulvic and its naturally-occurring minerals, vitamins, and other elements are organic in nature and our raw materials are never exposed to harsh synthetic chemicals. Unfortunately, the product cannot be certified organic by the USDA because minerals do not qualify as an organic output meaning they can't be grown by a farmer. Apples, spinach, and potatoes are all examples of an organic output.
Fulvic, however, can be certified as an Organic Input by the USDA and is often used by Organic farmers. Our fulvic is certified as an agricultural grade organic input.
We believe knowing when a product was made is more beneficial for a consumer than knowing when it will expire, this is why we choose to put the manufacturing date (MFD) on every product.
Humic & Fulvic is unique in that it does not technically expire and will last for many years if stored properly - that is, in a cool, dark place such as a cabinet or pantry; this product should never be boiled or frozen as this will damage the molecular structure. Due to the possibility of uncontrollable contaminates (dust, hair/fur, etc) or capsule degradation, our Humic & Fulvic has a Best By recommendation of 2 years from the MFD.
Speaking of getting waste byproducts out, fulvic acid is a superior way to enhance detoxification. When functioning optimally, our bodies are extremely efficient at flushing toxins out through various detox pathways. However, when we do not receive the nutrition we need, have health challenges, or are over-exposed to toxic environments and high stress, our bodies do not function optimally. By correcting, or even just increasing, the electrical potential of our cells, fulvic encourages cells to release waste products. Fulvic is then able to recognize and bind with these substances and carry them through the liver and kidneys to be processed and excreted by the body.
Due to the effectiveness of our Humic and Fulvic supplement, it is often suggested by healthcare practitioners to start slowly at a reduced dose with plenty of non-chlorinated water to avoid overloading detox pathways. Always remember to check with your healthcare practitioner before taking a supplement, especially if you have or suspect you may have weakened kidney or liver function or high blood pressure. It is important to ensure you are taking the products that are best for your specific needs.
Now that we know all about fulvic, what good are the other humic acids?
The larger humic molecules are not easily absorbed through our intestinal walls, so they stay in the digestive tract where they offer other health benefits. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp, has been shown to wreak havoc in our digestive tracts, but this is where the larger humic molecules shine. Studies have shown humic acids to assist in the removal of glyphosate and other toxins in the digestive tract as well as reducing the overall absorption of these harmful chemicals.
Humic also has powerful redox support that helps strengthen the contact between intestinal cells, improving “tight junction function” and reducing issues related to leaky gut. It also helps our body maintain proper fluid and electrolyte balance, and promotes the growth of beneficial gut bacteria by acting like a prebiotic fiber. Further, when we are deficient in essential vitamins and minerals, our bodies will attempt to reclaim them from fecal matter. This process can lead to the reabsorption of toxins and the elimination of constipation and other bowel issues. Finally, Humic helps provide the building blocks necessary for the production of digestive enzymes.
There simply is no better supplement than Humic and Fulvic for supporting and offering protection to our bodies at the cellular level.
Humic & Fulvic provides fulvic, the larger humic molecules, and all their associated minerals as they occur in nature. With this product, you get all the benefits of fulvic acid and additional support for the GI tract.
Fulvic 400X is an isolated fulvic product with all the larger humic molecules removed. It also provides a more concentrated mineral profile to help with mineral balance, deficiencies, and electrolyte hydration.
