The Earth’s Hidden Treasure
Millions of years ago the vegetation on earth was luscious and abundant. Plant life was vibrantly rich and grew prolifically, much healthier than today, drawing nutrients from soil containing a wealth of minerals, trace elements and humus brimming with microbes. Today, there are only a few rare and shrinking ecosystems, which resemble those ancient natural riches of life.
Everything in the world has become sanitized and our food, grown on chemically abused and tragically depleted soil, hugely processed and sterilised. We are so far removed from eating natural wholesome foods, as evolved beings we hardly even interact with mother earth and the soil.
So, is this prehistoric treasure chest of plant-related mineral, nutritional and healing goodness lost to us forever? Fortunately some of its finest gems can still be found in the most unlikely places like the earth’s coal deposits. These deposits were formed from ancient decomposed vegetation compressed beneath layers of sand, sediment and rock at high temperatures over millions of years. Some special types of brown coal have preserved and concentrated a substance, which although relatively unfamiliar to most, is as essential to life as oxygen, water and sun rays, it is known as ‘fulvic acid’.
Fulvic acid (should not to be confused with folic acid, an unrelated vitamin) is a naturally occurring organic compound usually found in plants and soil. In fact, there would be no plant life without it. It provides a nature-designed mechanism that transfers minerals and nutrients from the soil inside living cells of plant structure. It easily bonds minerals and trace elements into its own molecular structure making them bio-active and bio-available. It usually carries more than 70 different minerals and micro elements as part of its molecular complexes, most of them in an ionic form, ready to conduct electricity and enhance absorption. Due to its low molecular weight and excellent penetrative properties, fulvic acid easily infiltrates the membrane of a living cell and deposits its mineral, nutritional and healing worth inside the cell, where it is optimally used.
This natural and most effective absorption mechanism works for plants, animals and humans alike. But sadly, our modern industrial approach to agriculture, with its over-reliance on chemical fertilisers, pesticides and other synthetic materials, result in a rapid depletion of soil from all its naturally rich content, including fulvic acid. Thus, all living organisms receive nowhere near sufficient levels of fulvic acid that nature intended us to have in the first place. We have literally been robbed, not only of the best natural mineral and nutritional supplement with its unique mechanism of assimilation on a cellular level, as the amazing benefits of fulvic acid do not stop here. Fulvic acid has a myriad of uses and benefits for human health conditions and is fast gaining recognition.
Let’s start with fulvic acid’s ability to restore cellular chemical balance and electrical potential, which makes it an anti-oxidant and a free-radical scavenger of note. A free radical is an atom or a molecule, which lost or gained an electron in its outer shell and becomes highly reactive. It tries to become electrically neutral again, and in the process destroys DNA, proteins and cell membranes. The damage caused by free-radicals plays a role in ageing and development of cancer as well as other health conditions. It is proven that fulvic acid can provide an ideal environment to share electrons with free-radicals, behaving as an electron donor or acceptor depending on the need. It thus restores these damaged cells back to life substantially reducing free-radical damage. Other known anti-oxidants do include vitamins A, C and E, but when it comes to the complex structure of fulvic acid it makes for a far more powerful anti-oxidant than any other nutrient.
All normal body cells meet their energy demands through respiration of oxygen. When the demand exceeds supply we feel tired. When we exercise, our metabolic rate increases and we either run out of breath due to carbon dioxide build up or feel soreness in the muscles due to accumulation of lactic acid in that area.
In 1931 Dr Otto Warburgwon his first Nobel Prize for the study of cancer cells metabolism, and concluded one of the main causes of cancer is a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. It is therefore vitally important for our energy, well-being and protection to get more oxygen into the cells, but it is not that easy. Breathing oxygen may still not meet this demand in full because it is limited by the amount of available haemoglobin and by pH levels. Enter the fulvic acid, its molecule carries 45% of highly bio-available and bio-active oxygen (the rest of its molecular mass is made of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and sulphur) distributed directly to the cells. By supplementing with fulvic acid you will markedly increase oxygen levels in your cells as well as its metabolic utilisation, this will go a long way towards improving your health and vitality.
The rich mineral and trace elements content usually carried by fulvic acid is effectively used as electrolytes, when these minerals reach the circulatory system. They can easily replace or supplement micro elements, which we sweat out through our skin during a course of a normal working day or during even the most strenuous exercise.
Replace your Powerade or Energade with fulvic acid infused mineral water and almost instantaneously experience the restorative actions of natural electrolytes without any synthetic or high sugar content, which these popular drinks are full of. When Fulvic Acid is in a solution with water it actively dissolves minerals and metals rendering them bio-chemically reactive and mobile. It also enhances the availability of nutrients and makes them more readily absorbable. It further allows mineral regeneration, prolongs the residing time of essential nutrients, and prepares nutrients to be utilized by the cells. Nutrients interact with one another and it breaks them down into the simplest ionic forms, the most easily assimilated by cells.
Fulvic acid bonds and carries in its structure various phytochemical substances. Phytochemicals are chemical compounds naturally occurring in plants that have many protective and disease preventative properties. Plants naturally produce these substances for their own protection but research demonstrates that most of phytochemicals have biological significance for humans. They provide anti-oxidant and hormonal action, stimulate enzymes, take part in DNA replication, possess anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, and more. Energised by the most effective absorption mechanism of fulvic acid, they provide a great boost to our immune system.
Fulvic acid’s extraordinary ability to bond minerals, nutrients and vitamins into its own chemical structure comes thanks to its chelation properties, a particular way that ions and molecules bind other substances. Substances, which come into contact with fulvic acid become part of its own chemical structures and turn out to be a part of highly bio-active and bio-available biological substance. This attributing characteristic makes fulvic acid an excellent mechanism to effectively extract nutritional, mineral and healing value from the food we eat and transport it inside cells. It also has the ability to remove heavy metals, radioactive elements, pesticides and other chemical toxins from the body. Fulvic acid either: alters them into usable compounds in our body, taking away their toxic properties, or eliminates them as waste. It helps the cells to accept the beneficial content or reject toxic elements at their discretion.
Fulvic acid may even be the answer to many skin conditions. Research literature shows that it is known to be used for skin conditions such as eczema, acne and psoriasis or even fibromyalgia. These and other conditions expressing themselves on the skin are now very common, and are often treated by means that merely control symptoms and not actually treating the underlying cause.
Fulvic acid’s powerful anti–inflammatory action attacks the root of skin conditions of which many show some form of inflammation. Its anti-bacterial properties are particularly effective in combating acne. Fulvic acid can also effectively dissolve vegetal silica, vital for the collagen production, into a form that is very easy for our skin cells to use. It thus has anti-wrinkling and anti-ageing properties making skin feel soft and elastic. It will strengthen our ligaments tendons and joints, making our connective tissue more resistant to tears and injuries.
The latter is just a selection from the myriad of amazing benefits of fulvic acid, which can be substantiated by even a cursory internet search. Today, fulvic acid is an essential organic supplement for modern women and men. It benefits healthy individuals, who want optimum nutrition, well-being and lasting protection, as well as people afflicted with various medical conditions and chronic diseases, including cancer, HIV / AIDS, diabetes and others, who often battle through the serious side effects of invasive therapy.
Fulvic acid is often referred to as “Nature’s miracle molecule”, as no plant life could be sustained without it.
FulvicForce is South Africa’s one and only fulvic acid product extracted directly from brown coal under a patented process (patent no. 2005/01872), Fulvic Force taps into an ancient source of plant goodness, unpolluted and untouched by destructive modern practices, and aims to remedy mineral and nutritional deficiencies of contemporary food.
