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.

Go Super Green With Chlorophyll

I have always been fascinated with green foods and particularly with their explosion onto the market over the last few years, so let’s investigate these further to discover the specific integral ingredients that make green foods so popular.

Not so long ago, green nutrition was reserved for those who were serious about their health, often idiosyncratic in nature. The incredible power of the internet and other forms of media are now constantly reminding us of the benefits of eating green foods such as green leafy vegetables and algae, as well as including green supplements such as Chlorella and Spirulina as part of our nutritional regime. But what is so special about green foods and supplements? Aside from their fibre content, green foods are a source of vitamins, minerals together with live enzymes that aid digestion and crucially a rich source of chlorophyll. They alkalise the body helping to alleviate many digestive disorders especially because our diets lean towards making the body acidic which results in numerous concerns such as poor nutrient absorption, reflux and even cardiovascular disease. The most notable property of green foods is their ability to detoxify the body of numerous types of toxins including heavy metals from environmental pollution and this property is attributable solely to chlorophyll and not to their nutritional content.

A middle-aged friend who’s suffered long-term insomnia reports good results from a natural remedy based on Montmorency cherries. CherryActive capsules contain natural melatonin, the sleep hormone.
