FULVIC ACID - SUPERSIZE YOUR NUTRIENT INTAKE
by Alexander Wilson·
Be honest, you likely haven’t heard about Fulvic acid. But there’s growing interest and research around it, primarily because of its incredible potential for improving how our bodies function.
Fulvic acids are a family of organic acids found in soil organic matter, in rock sediment and aquatic environments. Fulvic acid is increasingly being used as a supplement because of its incredible benefits – it has even been credited as a hangover cure!
Here are some of the key things you should know about Fulvic acid:
1.Great for Sports and Exercise
Your muscles produce lactic acid when they run out of oxygen, resulting in discomfort and muscle fatigue. Fulvic minerals consist of 45% oxygen, which fuels muscle activity, reduces muscle fatigue and lactic acid build up and improves recovery rate. This makes a fulvic acid supplement ideal for general training and high-level sports activity. In fact, many high-performance athletes already look to oxygen supplements to enhance muscle performance.
2.Helps with food nutrient absorption
Fulvic acids are super carriers of various critical minerals. They may be able to move up to 60 times their weight in minerals into the body’s cells in the process called mineral uptake. This is potentially significant in combating mineral deficiencies on a mass scale. For example, Iron and Calcium deficiencies are a major global cause of health problems. The foods we eat have become more processed and mass-produced, and many are less nutrient-rich than they once were. Our bodies need more assistance in extracting these nutrients from our food, which is where Fulvic acid’s benefits come into play. Fulvic acid can be present in some foods such as organic vegetables and blackstrap molasses, or can be taken as a supplement.
3.Manages Free Radicals
Fulvic minerals are a highly effective anti-oxidant as they are uniquely capable of neutralising both negative and positive charged free radicals. Free radicals occur during normal oxygen metabolism, but can cause serious damage through a process called oxidative stress. An anti-oxidant’s role in neutralising these free radicals makes it important to heart and skin health and in helping lower the risk of infections, heart disease and some cancers.
Fulvic minerals are the best electrolyte known to man. Electrolytes help control the body’s hydration and micro-electrical cell activity and good hydration is necessary for us to perform at our best and feel energised.
5.Strengthens bone, hair and joints
Fulvic minerals dissolve silica and carry the benefits to our joints (those amazing absorption skills again). Silica plays a vital role in assisting the connective tissue for healthy hair, skin, nails, bones and joints.The basic end result is that collagen becomes available also, for building stronger joints.
Ongoing research may uncover even more of the minerals’ benefits. There have been promising avenues of research linked to diabetes treatment, for example. The good news is that Fulvic acid is already available to us in supplement form and in the on-shelf drink MiWATER, which has a distinctive black colour, due to its Humic acid component. In one form or another, Fulvic acid is worth a closer look.
