Where Does Fulvic Acid Come From?
Fulvic Acid is part of the Humic Acid family. It can be found in very few sources, including:
Peat or compost (must be leached & can be exposed to rodent droppings)
Lignite or Leonardite (brown coal – inferior humate)
Virgin Humate (best source) – Nature’s Fulvic is Virgin Humate
The absolute best fulvic acid comes from ancient deposits of lush plant matter that were buried and naturally composted over millions of years; resulting in the purest most concentrated form of organic matter referred to as Humates. Humic acids are an all-natural (pure organic) substance that is the nucleus of these deposits of organic humate; created by natural beneficial microbial activity. Its function is to dissolve, and convert the metallic and mineral molecules in soils, into a form that is readily usable by plants, animals and humans.
Plant life assimilates these powerful humic/fulvic substances, along with the dissolved or chelated minerals, and passes them on through the food chain; which is to say that fulvic acid can be obtained from nutrient rich food, provided of course the soil is rich with these substances in the first place and not severely depleted as is more and more typical with today’s over farmed and over fertilized soils.
It is a well known and publicized fact that our soils are depleted from poor agricultural practices. The sterile soil conditions brought on by the overuse of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and erosion prohibit microbial activity and the formation of fulvic acid; making it nearly impossible to obtain sufficient amounts of fulvic acid through our food source. Fulvic acid and mineral rich supplementation is an excellent way to counter the deficiencies found in our foods today.
