8 Benefits of Humic and Fulvic Acid

8 Benefits of Humic and Fulvic Acid

Mass commercial agriculture and strip farming have depleted our soil, and plants are missing important nutrients and minerals. Our animals’ health could be suffering because of this lack of vital nutrients. Luckily, there is a way to supplement what they are missing in their diet. Fulvic Acid transports key nutrients and minerals into the body’s cells. A single molecule of Fulvic Acid can transport about sixty times its own weight in nutrients. The molecules have the special ability to donate or receive two electrons, making it a natural electrolyte and antioxidant.

Humic acid is an organic compound that’s formed from the decay of plants that are millions of years old, through a process called “humification.” Fulvic acid is a byproduct of this substance. It was originally buried deep inside the earth, in organic matter that hasn’t formed into coal. Its a “bio-catalyst” that conditions the soil and allows the plant to absorb nutrients and minerals more easily. Humic Acid acts as a cleansing, fortifying and nourishing agent in the body.

Vitality Science has been using Humic and Fulvic Acid in our Pet Flora Probiotic with huge success for many years. It has always been one of our most popular supplements and these key ingredients may be why. The benefits of Humic and Fulvic Acid are seemingly endless. here are just a few examples of some of the incredible benefits:

1. Enhances Immune Function 

Humic and Fulvic Acid can help to increase immunity by restoring the health of the digestive system. Disease often stems from the gut, and gut inflammation can cause leaky gut, IBD, IBS, and countess other conditions.

2. Increases Nutrient Absorption

Fulvic acid is high in electrolytes, this allows for ions to effectively flow and absorb nutrients. The small molecule size of Humic and Fulvic Acid allows oxygen to pass through cell membranes easily and the nutrition from the food to be absorbed at a greater capacity.

3. Increases Supplement Absorption

Just as nutrients from the food is more easily absorbed when taking Humic and Fulvic Acid, the same goes for the additional supplements we give our animals. Giving our Pet Flora along with other supplements actually makes other supplements work better.

4. May Help to Regulate Diabetes

Just as Diabetes is on the rise in humans, the same goes for our cats and dogs. Lower quality food and less exercise are likely the culprit. Research has shown that Fulvic Acid can decrease hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) in diabetic rats. Humic and Fulvic Acid can increase antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) in the beta cells of the pancreas. This is not say that this should be a substitute for a healthy diet or lifestyle, but early research is promising.

5. Facilitates Healthy Microbiomes in the Gut

There is evidence that Humic and Fulvic Acid have a lot of therapeutic potential to improve gut based diseases. A factor of gut health is the ratio of good to bad bacteria. While bad bacteria will always exist in the gut, too much bad bacteria can cause many problems. Introducing Humic and Fulvic Acid into your diet can help to increase the ratio of good bacteria in your gut, and reduce symptoms such as bloating, constipation, diarrhea and food sensitivities. The reduction of these symptoms can help to improve diseases such as small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

6. Improves Chronic Pain and Inflammation

Chronic inflammation is one of the main driving factors of disease. While inflammation can be a natural and healthy process, chronic inflammation will cause pain and increase the chance of developing a range of deadly diseases. Because Humic and Fulvic Acid help to decrease inflammation, it can also help to decrease pain associated with inflammation, such as joint pain, arthritis, headaches, migraines and other muscle pains.

7. Fights Bacterial and Viral Infections

Humic and Fulvic Acid can help heal the body from illnesses caused by bacteria and viruses, including; Herpes, Flu A, and Candida overgrowth, among many others. Candida in particular is notoriously resistance to treatment. Taking these supplements preventatively can also decrease the risk of a viral overload in the body.

8. Body pH

In an overly acidic body, cells struggle to grow, multiply, and detox properly. Supplementing with Humic and Fulvic Acid can improve pH levels in the body, which in turn allows for normal cell metabolism and organ function.
