The sources of minerals derived from plants are known as the humic soil substrate or humic deposits and are usually in the upper layers of the soil. Humus is produced from decaying plant sources. When these deposits contain bioavailable elements, soluble in water, they will also contain humic acids. Fulvic acid is one of the different humic acids.
Humic acids are a complex mixture of organic material, coming from leaves, branches, trunks, and others, which are decaying in the soil. The process is carried out by microorganisms and fungi, producing fulvic acid. These acids have the property of forming very low molecular weight compounds with positively charged ions, a process known as chelation. The chelated mineral compounds are highly absorbable by plants and animals. This natural chelation process allows plants to store both vitamins and minerals. The amount of ionic minerals absorbed by humans, when combined with the fulvic acid, is much greater than the absorption achieved through the use of traditional tablets.
The Fulvic Acid and the Organic Transmutation
People who take colloidal minerals derived from plants are concerned with the minerals found in the list of contents in the bottle. There are elements of “toxic” metals, such as arsenic, mercury, and others. Actually, colloidal minerals derived from plants, DO NOT CONTAIN TOXIC ELEMENTS.
Colloidal minerals derived from plants are safe and can be used with confidence. The natural process of chelation with fulvic acids carries out a process of organic transmutation. This process transforms the chemical properties of the ionic elements allowing them to remain in elemental form. This process is common in nature. An example is the ionic combination of sodium and chlorine. Both, in their elemental form, are toxic, but when combined naturally, form sodium chloride, which is a very useful compound. Sodium chloride is the table salt that we use daily. Other elements, with potential for toxicity, such as iron, are required by the body. An excess of elemental iron leads to several disease conditions, known as hemosiderosis.
In the ionic compounds found in soils, fulvic acid is the main factor in organic transmutation. The label of vitamin supplements lists heavy metals because even when these are combined with the fulvic acid, in the process of chemical analysis, the elements are detected. Once again, when the ionic minerals react with the fulvic acid and the photosynthesis process is carried out, the ions change from an inorganic to an organic state and their chemical properties change with it.
Fulvic acid is present in colloidal minerals derived from plants. This is not true of organic minerals that are derived from other organic sources such as oyster shells, egg shells, animal bones, different types of fruit, dried (dried) yeasts and others. While several mineral supplements, available in granules or tablets, are attributed a large number of components, these can never be compared to the safety and absorption of colloidal minerals. It should be noted that fulvic acid can contain up to 60 different types of mineral compounds.
When the positively charged minerals are absorbed by the plants, the association with fulvic acid converts them into negatively charged compounds. Although the process and effects of transmutation are known, the current mechanism by which fulvic acid transmutes the elements is not known.
Acid Increases Bioavailability
In addition to the transmutation of ions, fulvic acid has the ability to make vitamins and minerals more absorbable, by producing complexes that are easily transported by the cells of the roots and intestine.
Pharmacological studies carried out
- As an anti-inflammatory agent:
The efficacy of hydrogenated cortisone in relation to fulvic acid varies with the location of its source and the extraction method. (i) Fulvic acid inhibits an enzyme secreted from the infected area and also regulates the level of zinc and copper in the trace elements and thus activates dismutases containing zinc and copper.
- Stimulates blood circulation and enhances blood clotting:
Many diseases are caused by malfunction of circulation in the capillary blood system. The therapeutic effect of fulvic acid is a result of its ability to restore and improve blood circulation in the capillary system. Fulvic acid, on the other hand, serves as well as a blood coagulant when there is bleeding or blood seeping from the vascular bed.
- Digestive ulcers:
The curative effects of fulvic acid are the result of its ability to stimulate blood circulation in the stomach wall and its ability to inhibit the secretion of acid-producing cells. It also stimulates the secretion of glands that have the ability to protect the inner wall of the stomach, preventing ulcers.
There are indications that with the injection of fulvic acid in the abdominal region increases the size of the thymus in experimental animals, together with the increase in the activity of the macrophage. A dosage of 5 mg/kg of weight, injected in the abdominal region is beneficial. However, dosages greater than 50 mg / Kg. showed the opposite effect, that is, the size of the thymus is reduced.
Fulvic acid regulates the abnormal secretion of thyroid hormone as a result of its regulatory power of cyclic nucleotides at the cellular level.
Fulvic acid, in general, does not kill cancer cells. It serves as a regulatory agency in the immune system and can be used in conjunction with other anticancer medicines.
Clinical Uses of Fulvic Acid
- Anti-inflammatory and blood coagulant:
In many clinical cases, the infections were accompanied by blood seeping into the area, or ulcers caused to bleed. Fulvic acid moderates ulcerous conditions on the basis of its anti-inflammatory nature, its nature of coagulation, and general curative capacity.
- Corneal infection:
We studied and treated 53 cases with drops of fulvic acid for eyes and intramuscular injections. 94.2% success rate.
- Acute Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage:
160 cases were studied and treated with fulvic acid in oral and injectable form. 95.6% success rate.
- Skin ulcers:
51 cases were studied and treated with the fulvic acid bath and minerals. 92.2% success rate.
- Rheumatoid arthritis:
A large number of cases were studied and treated with the fulvic acid bath mixed with minerals and orally (capsules).
Several thousand cases were studied and treated with the preparation of fulvic acid. The success rate was so good that the Chinese medical authorities developed an over-the-counter medicine for national distribution.
