Humic and fulvic acids are both naturally occurring “humic substances” containing carbon and oxygen, are acidic and occur naturally in plants. Humic substances consist of organic matter found throughout nature as a result of the action of millions of beneficial microbes on decomposing plants, known as humification.

Taking fulvic acid supplements can boost the body's supply of antioxidants. This improves the odds for fighting nerve pains, muscle pains, arthritis, headache and all other conditions related to inflammations. The antioxidant properties of fulvic acid also help calm brain cells preventing damage from free radicals.

Most humic and/or fulvic supplements contain fulvic humic trace minerals, trace vitamins, amino acids, and an abundance of other beneficial naturally occurring organic source humic phytochemicals and constituents. Taking these supplements can produce energy, balance cell life, catalyze enzymes, improve circulation, increase endurance, structure hormones, control inflammation, stimulate metabolism, remineralize the body and super-oxygenate the blood.

In selecting a humic or fulvic supplement, look for products that have a rigorous extraction process to maximize purity and supplements that are sourced from healthy, organic soils free of toxins and heavy metals. Also, supplements should be free of wheat, gluten, dairy, MSG and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).

Consult with your healthcare practitioner for the right supplements for you.
