Fulvic acid is a natural health-promoting substance that has always occurred naturally yet its tremendous value is now just beginning to be recognized by the natural health community. With more and more of its amazing health benefits being unfolded, it’s getting more popular among natural health practitioners and conscious health-seekers.
As a natural supplement it offers both preventative and healing benefits but might be especially useful to those suffering from over-toxicity, chronic health issues and cancer.
Where Does Fulvic acid Come From?
Fulvic acid is extracted from peat lands that contain humic and fulvic acids. These are types of “humic substances,” the major components of organic matter found in the soil.
They result from the decomposing action of millions of microscopic microorganisms on dead plants and animals. This decomposition process produces many beneficial by products which are absorbed back into the soil and give it the high energy properties required for a healthy soil. Fulvic acid is one of the most beneficial by products of this process.
What Are the Benefits of Fulvic acid?
1. Enhances Bioavailability of Important Trace Minerals
Mineral deficiencies is very common nowadays and can predispose to many health problems and disease conditions and destroy our health. Minerals are essential for all metabolic processes in the body and also maintaining an alkaline PH balance that promotes health. Fulvic acid is not only rich in trace minerals that help optimize cell’s function and PH balance but more importantly, it enables these minerals to be absorbed.
2. A Powerful Natural Antioxidant
Fulvic acid is an antioxidant that fights off the damage incurred from free radicals that enter your body through the food you eat and through outside environmental toxins. Free radicals can accelaerate aging, cellular damage and predispose to chronic disease.
3. A Powerful Organic Electrolyte
Fulvic acid has proven to be a powerful organic electrolyte, serving to balance cell life by helping damaged body cells to restore its normal chemical balance and in turn its electrical potential.
4. An Oxygen Donor
Fulvic acid contains oxygen that’s highly bioavailable for human cells. It’s chemical components allow it to deliver oxygen directly to the cell membrane to be utilized for different activities such as moving, sleeping detoxification and regeneration of cells.
5. Fulvic Acid and Toxic Metals
Ingestion of fulvic acid is known to increase the ability of a cell to release toxic metals. Australia’s Ecotoxicology Program found that when fish swam in water with fulvic acid, their aluminum toxicity levels were up to six times lower than otherwise.
Fulvic Acid Natural Supplement Forms
The use of conventional agricultural methods which use fertilizers and pesticides has led to soil erosion and mineral depletion and unhealthy soil that has fewer natural substances such as fulvic acid.

Fulvic acid is now available as a natural supplement form either as part of other supplements or by itself as a liquid supplement that can be added to water.
Topical Natural Supplement
Fulvic acid mud baths is also availble in a form that can be used externally to promote release of toxins and help with alkalizing the body.
