Fulvic Acid – Is this the missing natural nutritional link?
Article provided by http://www.water-for-health.co.uk
An increasing percentage of the population is looking for food which is natural, organic and health promoting. It is regarded by a growing percentage of the population that organic food is better for you, primarily due to the absence of pesticide residues and the use of inorganic fertilisers. However there is still no guarantee that if you eat a wholly organic diet that your food supply will contain all the vital nutrition that it needs to maintain optimum health, high energy levels and a high level of immunity.
Over the last century our soils have been intensively farmed with a consequent reduction in trace minerals and other molecules which are needed for those wanting optimum health. In recent years the scientific community have been researching a molecule that was once abundant in our soils, but which has become depleted through these unnatural farming practices. That molecule is fulvic acid. Since fulvic acid has been depleted from our soils it has consequently been depleted from our food supply. Fulvic Acid is a natural component of rich organic humus soils. It is created by microbes living in decaying organic matter.
Fulvic Acid is not strictly an acid but rather a complex compound that can attract both negative and positively charged ions. Consequently it can hold minerals such as magnesium, calcium and zinc which become incorporated in its molecular structure. Fulvic acid complex is really a multi mineral complex that can be readily absorbed by plants, animals and humans and helps to promote vibrant health.
The ability of fulvic acid to dissolve elemental minerals and convert them into a useable form is one of the important attributes of fulvic acid. This mineral complex is readily absorbed by plants giving us fruits and vegetables with minerals that will be readily absorbed by our bodies. This is how we were designed to get the vital trace elements we need for proper functioning of our body.
There is an increasing body of evidence that suggests that mineral deficiency is a contributory factor in many of our modern lifestyle diseases. It is well known that minerals are essential for bone health but now increasing attention is focused on its role in many other diseases including cancers, thyroid problems, neurological problems and other diseases caused by impaired immune function. It is vitally important that our diets are mineral rich, in absorbable form, to give the body proper nutrition to ensure optimal health.
With the food chain being deficient in minerals and fulvic acid to ensure proper assimilation it is often essential to supplement with an adequate supply of the trace minerals the body needs for optimum health. However the key to proper absorption of minerals may well lie with the unique molecule fulvic acid.
Over recent years there has been growing scientific interest in the role of fulvic acid and in particular the Chinese have carried out a number of studies that show encouraging effects. However anecdotal evidence from those supplementing with fulvic acid is creating considerable excitement. A report published in the Journal of Carcinogenesis in November 2003 linking nutrient deficiencies with tumour growth is interesting. The fulvic acid molecule is only about the tenth of the size of a blood cell making it easy to enter the blood stream and be absorbed in the body. Fulvic acid helps to restore electrolyte balance in the body. It aids the assimilation of nutrients into the cells and helps cell detoxification.
In an ideal world we would get all the nutrients our body needs from our food supply. However we do not live in an ideal world and so it is essential for the majority of people to supplement to ensure adequate body nutrition if we are going to enjoy excellent health.
In the state of New Mexico, US there are a number of unpolluted sources of decaying compacted vegetation which are extremely rich in fulvic acid. It is now possible to supplement with fulvic acid on a regular daily basis to give your body a regular source of this very important nutrient complex, to promote improved electrolyte balance, nutrient uptake and cell detoxification. Its role is vitally important for all those people that are striving for optimum health with high levels of energy and immunity in addition to those who need support to overcome degenerative disease. Fulvic Acid is now referred to as ‘The Miracle Molecule’.
In the UK and Europe, fulvic acid from New Mexico is supplied by Water for Health Ltd in a readily absorbed liquid solution. For more information on fulvic acid and biomass minerals go to http://www.water-for-health.co.uk
