Fulvic Acid

What on earth is fulvic acid?

Fulvic acid is an active chemical compound that allows our body to use and absorb nutrients such as probiotics, antioxidants, fatty acids, and minerals better. When organic matter decomposes, millions of healthy bacteria are released, such as fulvic acid. This compound is full of trace minerals, electrolytes, fatty acids, silica, prebiotics and probiotics! 

Fulvic acid comes from one of two classes of humic acids, which are organic compounds that were found naturally in the earth’s soil, rock sediments, and bodies of water. Unfortunately fulvic acid is no longer found but in several places now in the US. There was a time If you had spent time outdoors and came into contact with soil, you have probably been exposed to fulvic acid. 

What can fulvic acid do for me?

Use of fulvic acid dates back to ancient times, when a tar-like substance from the Himalayan Mountains called Shilajit containing 15-20% fulvic acid was used for medicinal purposes.

The silica in fulvic acid directly stimulates collagen synthesis. Collagen is a protein that is abundantly found in connective tissues and makes up a big part of your skin, hair, and nails.

Prevent Alzheimer’s! 

Another study on the therapeutic effect of fulvic acid showed that this substance improved cognitive disorders and acted as a stimulant of cognitive activity in humans.

People with Alzheimer’s disease cause abnormal changes to a protein called tau. Tau protein usually binds and stabilizes microtubules in the brain, but in a diseased brain, these tau proteins detach from the microtubules and begin sticking to other tau molecules creating threads that tangle inside neurons.

The study showed that fulvic acid actually prevents tau from forming into this tau protein cluster, thus assisting in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease.
