Fulvic Acid – The Elixir Of Life

Growing green leaves

Scientists have known for years that everyone requires at least 90 nutrients to maintain optimal health. These nutrients include 17 vitamins, 59 minerals, 12 amino acids and three essential fatty acids. Whilst nature has provided us with all these nutrients to enable us to live a long and healthy life, unfortunately the processing of foods and the depletion of nutrients in our soils are some of the biggest reasons for nutrient deficiencies within our bodies. Fortunately, scientists have found that Fulvic Acid, an element found in soil, makes nutrients more available from the food we ingest and thus corrects deficiencies quickly and safely.

What is Fulvic Acid?

Fulvic Acid is the element found in humus, the highly nutritious layer of the earth. Partially decomposed matter is the basis of humus and peat. It is this highly nutritious layer that feeds plants and ensures that they grow strong and healthy. Fulvic Acid is created in extremely small amounts by millions of beneficial microbes that work on the decaying plant matter. It combines with a variety of minerals to create a complex molecular compound. Fulvic Acid works to activate the nutrients within soil so that they can be utilised by the cells of plants. It is often termed ‘nature’s miracle molecule’ and for good reason. Unfortunately, modern farming practices have destroyed our soils, leaving them devoid of minerals and have thus disrupted the proliferation of this miracle molecule in the soil, and therefore in vegetation and animals – in effect within our food.

Like its action in soil, Fulvic Acid serves as an essential vehicle that carries vitamins and nutrients to the right place in our bodies. Fulvic Acid is so powerful that one single Fulvic Acid molecule is capable of carrying 65 or more minerals and trace elements directly into our cells. This is just one of its properties that provides Fulvic Acid with the ability to have a dramatic impact on all types of diseases and concerns.

What are the benefits of Fulvic Acid?

For some years, Fulvic Acid has gone unnoticed as a potential supplement. Recent research though has uncovered a number of potential benefits, which I am going to outline below.

Fulvic Acid is termed a Super Cell Conductor – it has the vital capability of realising the potential of all nutrients we consume. When minerals and trace elements from food come into contact with Fulvic Acid, they are dissolved into a form that makes them more active and more available to the body. These minerals fuse with Fulvic Acid and because of its small molecular size, it has the ability to take these nutrients directly to all the cells of our bodies. Additionally, Fulvic Acid makes the cells more permeable and receptive to these nutrients. Essentially, Fulvic Acid mobilizes food to become our medicine.

A mineral-rich tide flows continuously through all parts of the body in the form of water, the universal solvent that nourishes as well as carries waste away. Our DNA within cells receive instructions through angstrom sized (1/1000 micron) bio-available minerals. These miniscule minerals are pulled through the cell walls by hydrogen present in water. Most mineral supplements are larger than this size and although they can be transported in the bloodstream, they cannot be accessed by the cells. It is Fulvic Acid that carries these minerals into the cells and additionally makes the cells more permeable allowing these minerals to penetrate into the cells where they are utilised for a multitude of processes. Minerals are very important. Dr Linus Pauling, winner of two Nobel Prizes stated:

You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment, ultimately to a mineral deficiency“.

In addition to enhancing the absorption of vitamins and minerals in our body, Fulvic Acid acts as a catalyst. A catalyst is a compound that facilitates a chemical reaction. There are literally thousands of chemical reactions that take place every minute in our bodies involving enzyme production, the movement of nutrients in and out of our cells, digestion, and so forth. In the vast majority of cases, these reactions could simply not take place at normal body temperature or would take a long period of time. Fulvic Acid acts like a catalyst in these reactions facilitating all these processes quickly and effectively.

Fulvic Acid is a natural, powerful antioxidant and helps to neutralise free radicals. Free radicals are harmful, highly reactive compounds that cause the destruction of soft tissues, encouraging cell mutations, altering genes, disrupting chemical and hormonal reactions within our bodies, destroying the optimal function of our glands and thus making us more susceptible to disease. This is one of the most widely acceptable theories of ageing and disease.

When we ingest food, our digestive system, when working at optimum capacity, releases enzymes which work to break down food efficiently in order to release nutrients from food. Without these enzymes, food would not be broken down, stagnate in the stomach and gut, which would ultimately lead to toxin build-up and eventual death. Fulvic Acid activates these digestive enzymes, which are the life force of our bodies.

We are all conscious of cleansing our bodies externally and yet few pay attention to internal cleansing. Fulvic Acid is highly effective at neutralising and detoxifying harmful toxins and pollutants including heavy metals such as lead and mercury. Fulvic Acid bonds with these heavy metals, a process called ‘chelation’, and then converts them into inactive compounds, which can be eliminated through normal excretory processes.

Fulvic Acid is reported to increase oxygenation of all the soft tissues within our bodies. Oxygenating the cells is vital because it enhances energy production and counters numerous concerns. In 1931, the Nobel Prize Winner for physiology and medicine, Dr Otto Warburg established that oxygen deprivation was a major cause of cell mutation. Taking Fulvic Acid will help increase oxygenation of our cells and hopefully protect the genetic material within our cells.

Iron deficiency, the second most prevalent deficiency in the world, has been shown to be addressed quickly with the use of Fulvic Acid. Unfortunately, iron is also one of the hardest minerals to metabolise putting a great burden on the liver and yet many people take synthetic iron supplements without considering this. Fulvic Acid primes the iron within our food so that it is easily utilized by the body and hence corrects deficiencies quickly and safely. This same action helps to correct numerous mineral deficiencies including magnesium which plays a key role in over 300 biochemical reactions in our bodies.

Fulvic Acid is considered to be one of the safest and most potent anti-viral substances available today. A generally accepted benefit of Fulvic Acid is that it can be used indefinitely for long periods of time without creating resistance. The implication of using Fulvic Acid for viral infections goes well beyond simply using it for colds and flu.

When used externally, Fulvic Acid can be used to treat abrasions, open cuts, wounds, leg ulcers, insect bites and numerous other skin complaints. Athlete’s foot can be avoided as Fulvic Acid displays powerful fungicidal properties and it can also be used to treat fungal toenails which are very difficult to eradicate using conventional drugs.

There are many reports on the positive benefits of Fulvic acid on the cardiovascular system with many reporting control of elevated blood pressure within a few weeks of using Fulvic Acid.

I could continue with numerous other reported benefits such as reductions in the inflammatory enzymes produced by the liver, enhanced immunity and restoring electrolyte balance in the body being just some of the other benefits of using Fulvic Acid. When the body’s cells are sufficiently nourished, and free from toxins and free radicals, they are able to regenerate efficiently and are also able to detoxify and repair quickly. People taking Fulvic Acid have reported greater feelings of vitality, improved energy, a stronger immune system and a higher tolerance to stress. The effects of Fulvic Acid are nothing short of fascinating. For all the varying reasons mentioned above, and many more, Fulvic Acid supplementation should be a top priority and the supplement that I would recommend is Fulvic Acid Elixir by Ful.Vic.Health.  Fulvic Acid Elixir is a supplement which contains Ioniplex®, the patented and clinically studied fulvic acid ionic complex which has been found to effectively remove heavy metals, protect the body against compounds that are produced through sugar metabolism as well as enhance collagen within skin by 30%. Other benefits found within the study include enhanced hair thickness and nail strength.

Fulvic Acid Elixir will help the body to heal, renew, and restore.

    Good day
    Please can you assist. My husband had an operation to his tibia in November and two weeks ago the stainless steel plate broke and he had to have the op redone. He now has an external fixator for the next 4-6 months. What I would like to know is, 1. can I clean the wounds with Fulvic Acid? 2. will taking Fulvic Acid improve healing? 3. Can you get tablets form of Fulvic Acid? 4. How long does it take to feel the benefits of Fulvic Acid? Grateful for your assistance.

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Lisa, you can most definitely clean the wound with fulvic acid elixir but surely it might make more sense to cleanse with a stronger antibacterial solution provided by the hospital? Fulvic Acid is available in vegetarian capsules under the name Ionicell for Women (suitable for men). The healing of tissue injuries relies on reducing inflammation and FA most definitely does this effectively so yes your husband should experience speedier recovery. Most users experience benefits within four to six weeks with enhanced energy levels as well as noticeable improvements in skin and hair texture.
    Best wishes,
    Shabir

    Hi, I have been taking Ionicell for about 6 months and am thrilled and amazed at the fantastic results. My thin delicate and easily damaged hair is now lusturous, thicker and stronger. Not only have I noticed the difference, but my friends have noticed and commented on the health of my hair (My hairdresser especially). I recommend Ionicell to everyone and forward your link constantly. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Rosemary

    vegetarian capsules under the name Ionicell for Women (suitable for men).

    Where can I purchase the lonicell tablets??

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Lisa, there are only two oral supplements containing fulvic acid. One is Ionicell For Women, which is suitable for men and now available in a veggie capsule, or Fulvic Acid Elixir which is a quick acting liquid. Ionicell is not available in a tablet format as far as i am aware.
    Best wishes,

    Hi Sharon, You can take both types of fulvic acid, the Elixir and Ionicell, alongside Superior Hair and zinc and copper. However, please watch your zinc intake and you should not be taking ideally more than 30mg for more than a few months and the Superior Hair already contains 15mg of zinc per three capsules. The directions for Fulvic Acid Elixir state take 15ml which is equivalent to 3 teaspoons daily, once daily.

    Hi! Hoping for some advice. After being exhausted, dizzy, lacking concentration, breathless etc. for weeks/months I’ve just found out after a blood test that i have very low iron and low vitamin D.
    I’ve been prescribed iron by the doctor and told to get a vit d supplement. I’m keen to sort this and help my body as soon as possible! Would Fulvic Acid be a suitable addition to the prescription or would it be too much? Is there anything else you would recommend? Thanks so much in advance.

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Lucy, Fulvic acid does not contain high strengths of synthetic iron – it relies on delivering ionic iron to the body which can enter each and every cell and help restore any possible deficiency. Fulvic Acid Elixir can also help to convert iron from food sources and from other sources into its ionic form so please continue to take your prescribed iron alongside Fulvic Acid Elixir.
    Consider either DLux 3000 Spray or Liposomal Vitamin D which provide the most absorbable sources of vitamin D3. I don’t see the need to add anything else at the moment unless things do not improve after a few weeks.
    Best wishes,
    Shabir

  • Lucy Hood

    Thank you so much. Can’t say how much your response is appreciated.
    Would you recommend the elixir over ionicell? I’ll go with whatever is most effective – but if they are the same I think I’d find the capsules more convenient. Will get an order in today!

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Lucy, you are welcome. The Elixir does not have to be broken down further whereas the capsules need to be broken down and the contents mixed with enzymes etc however this process is easily carried out within our bodies so it is truly a personal choice.

    I’ve just started on my first bottle of Fulvic Acid Elixir and I’m excited to reap the benefits. I’m particularly interested in using the Elixir not just internally, but also as a homemade mouthwash (water, Himalayan salt and a few drops of Fulvic Acid) to help combat periodontal disease. There’s a PubMed article which investigates the biological properties of carbohydrate derived fulvic acid (CHD-FA) “As a potential novel therapy for the management of oral biofilm infections”, and test results are astonishing: “CHD-FA was highly active against all of the oral bacteria tested, including Porphyromonas gingivalis, with a sessile minimum inhibitory concentration of 0.5%. This concentration was shown to kill multi-species biofilms by approximately 90%, levels comparable to that of chlorhexidine (CHX).”

    I have two questions for you… (1) Is the Fulvic Acid in your Elixir carbohydrate derived? and (2) on a different topic, can I forgo my magnesium and zinc supplements given that Fulvic Acid contains these minerals?

    Thanks in advance,
    Marie

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi, the fulvic acid is derived from the soil and so it has not been modified into a CHD-FA product. Fulvic acid does display antibacterial and antifungal properties. I would be inclined to leave zinc supplementation but not magnesium since this mineral is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions and hence the body places huge demands for the very important mineral.

    Does Fulvic Acid interact with menopause hormone medication at all? Also are the any short term or long term side effects?

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi, I have not come across any studies that indicate that fulfil acid interacts with hormone medication and generally there are no short or long term side effects.

    Hi, I believe that Fulvic acid will provide numerous benefits for your husband but I am reluctant to recommend this since fulvic acid does provide ionic calcium which may further add to the already high levels of calcium produced by the parathyroid due to hyperparathyroidism.

    Many thanks for your reply. Can you recommend anything that would be good for my husband to take that would be good for his general health considering his current problems as mentioned. He is 79 years old and otherwise in good condition! Again, many thanks.

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    I would be more inclined to use a deeply nourishing powder by Aduna called Moringa Leaf which provides protein, vitamins and food state minerals (not synthetic nor high doses) to nourish the body.

  • Rach Ang

    Hi, does Fulvic acid help cure Leaky Gut syndrome and does it help get Candida overgrowth under control?
    Thanks!

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Rach, Fulvic acid aids the whole digestive process, and calms inflammation in the gut leading to a leaky gut. A poorly working gut may lead to less that optimal digestion. Additionally, it displays anti-fungal properties helping to keep Candida under control.

  • Magda

    Hello
    I was wondering if it’s safe to take Fulvic acid during pregnancy. I’m 41 and trying for a baby.

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi Magda, although generally regarded as safe for use during pregnancy, I would always err on the side of caution and only recommend an appropriate multivitamin and an omega 3 supplement for use during pregnancy. Whilst trying to conceive, there would be no reason not to take Fulvic Acid but once you conceive please consider appropriate multivitamins instead.

  • Tee

    Hi I was wondering whether I would be ok to take this elixir – I get terrible migraines from anything that is fermented/yeasty and get candida and other fungal infections easily. But as you say it is free from yeast and actually has anti-fungal properties I think it actually might be beneficial. What do you think?

  • http://www.victoriahealth.com/ Victoria Health

    Hi, I am sure Fulvic Acid Elixir will be of benefit in tackling fungal concerns whilst providing numerous other benefits.
