The 3 Best Things About Fulvic Acid

Fulvic acid refines and transports minerals and other nutrients through cell walls—a true super-nutrient!

Were you aware that soil is full of organic compounds that are necessary to human health? One of these important compounds is called fulvic acid and it enables us to better absorb an array of beneficial nutrients—including antioxidants, fatty acids and minerals. At one point in time, plants were able to effectively draw organic compounds from the soil and make them available for human consumption. However, aggressive farming—which utilizes chemicals and causes soil erosion—has depleted fulvic acid and trace minerals in arable land. The result is that many of us are deficient in nutrients and minerals that we should be obtaining from our food. Additionally, modern life and the antibacterial craze have largely ended our contact with soil, through which we could naturally obtain organic compounds like fulvic acid. Today, many people are turning to fulvic acid supplements in order to harness the best benefits that this organic compound has to offer. What’s So Super About Fulvic Acid?
  • Optimizes Nutrient Absorption. With added fulvic acid, the human body can more readily absorb antioxidants, fatty acids, and minerals. Fulvic acid accomplishes this by increasing cell permeability, allowing nutrients to pass through cell walls more quickly.
  • Decreases Free Radical Damage. Fulvic acid has been shown to decrease the concentration of free radicals. Fulvic acid can also increase the lifespan of cells by increasing the permeability of cell walls and receiving or donating electrons.
  • Improves Cognitive Health. We can’t wait to see more research done on the effects of fulvic acids on cognitive health, because the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease published a study in which fulvic acid was shown to protect against cognitive impairment. Fulvic acid may even halt the advancement of Alzheimer’s disease, according to the researchers!
Fulvic acid is available as a supplement. It is frequently mixed with water, turning the water black and resulting in an unappetizing-looking beverage! Alternatively, UB Super’s protein superfood nutritional shakes provides fulvic acid and trace minerals to supplement the deficiencies in a modern diet—no strange-looking beverages necessary!

Good question. I believe there is no right or wrong answer here. If a product is whole food based there will always be trace elements of what is found in the soil and where that particular ingredient is harvested. As a whole, there are certain proteins that have higher heavy metal counts than others like rice proteins and that goes for fruits and vegetables as well and where there grown. Too say that one form of fulvic acid has heavy metals and another one does not would be hard to determine without analysis.

I have read a lot about fulvic acid and it s benefits but there is one thing that I can t get clear of some fulvic acid products contain cadmium, arsenic etc. and those sellers defend them selves saying that organic heavy metals are not toxic in contrary necessary for organism. Then there are other sellers saying that their product is pure from heavy metals beware of others product that are not So please let me know if you have some solid information to clear this thing up. I was also wondering if the heavy metals found in vegetables are organic or inorganic?
