Humic and fulvic acid are substances that are extracted from nutrient rich soil and have profound health benefits for both humans and animals.
Ascent Nutrition’s Humic and Fulvic Acid is sourced from a pristine, rich soil deposit here in the United States and is about 20 times smaller in particle size than other humic and fulvic acid products available. This small particle size may allow for optimal absorption and utilization in the body.
Humic acid acts as a prebiotic, even though it is not really a fiber in and of itself. This means that it acts as food for the good bacteria in our gut and microbiome, which helps those beneficial bacteria grow. Interestingly, humic acid helps support the replenishing of a person’s native bacteria that is unique and specific for each individual.
Supporting the health of one’s own beneficial bacteria helps both the brain and the gut, which is known as the gut-brain axis.
Humic acid also naturally contains within it fulvic acids, which are many times smaller than humic acid and help support the body in numerous ways. Since the molecular size is so small and it is of such low molecular weight, fulvic acid can cross any cell membrane, including the blood-brain barrier.
Since fulvic acid is so small and can cross any cellular membrane, it acts in a very unique way as both a transporter of nutrients and a detoxifier. This means that fulvic acid helps to carry nutrients like vitamins and minerals into cells and helps to remove the waste from cells.
Fulvic acid also benefits the body in many other ways, including being the most potent free radical scavenger known, having around 14 tetra trillion electrons it can donate or receive to scavenge harmful free radicals. This is 14 with twenty-one zero’s behind it!
Fulvic acid is also an extremely rich source of electrolytes and it catalyzes enzymatic reactions, helps to chelate and detoxify heavy metals, supports electrochemical balance between cells and supports the synthesis rate of RNA and DNA.
What is especially important to note is that because fulvic acid is known as a very potent electrolyte, it is beneficial to the electrical properties of all living things. We can view fulvic acid as a “mini battery charger” that provides a steady, constant trickle charge of electricity to cells.
In other words, cells need electricity to work and fulvic acid provides a constant charge of electricity because of the natural properties it exerts.
As mentioned above, the small molecular size of fulvic acid allows for it to cross the blood-brain barrier, where it can exert its free-radical scavenging properties and can provide electricity also to the brain and nervous system.
Fulvic acid has also been shown to be able to neutralize certain radioactive substances and is known to help catalyze the breakdown of certain pesticides and herbicides.
People commonly report feeling increased energy levels, a healthy sense of focus and clarity, a healthy gut and microbiome and more.
While there are other humic and fulvic acid products out there, we intentionally offer a product whose particle size is 20X smaller than other humic and fulvic acid products out there. This even smaller particle size may help maximize humic and fulvic acid’s ability to detoxify and carry nutrients into cells.
