Fulvic acid refines and transports minerals and other nutrients through cell walls—a true super-nutrient!
Were you aware that soil is full of organic compounds that are necessary to human health? One of these important compounds is called fulvic acid and it enables us to better absorb an array of beneficial nutrients—including antioxidants, fatty acids and minerals.
At one point in time, plants were able to effectively draw organic compounds from the soil and make them available for human consumption. However, aggressive farming—which utilizes chemicals and causes soil erosion—has depleted fulvic acid and trace minerals in arable land.
The result is that many of us are deficient in nutrients and minerals that we should be obtaining from our food. Additionally, modern life and the antibacterial craze have largely ended our contact with soil, through which we could naturally obtain organic compounds like fulvic acid.
Today, many people are turning to fulvic acid supplements in order to harness the best benefits that this organic compound has to offer.
What’s So Super About Fulvic Acid?
- Optimizes Nutrient Absorption. With added fulvic acid, the human body can more readily absorb antioxidants, fatty acids, and minerals. Fulvic acid accomplishes this by increasing cell permeability, allowing nutrients to pass through cell walls more quickly.
- Decreases Free Radical Damage. Fulvic acid has been shown to decrease the concentration of free radicals. Fulvic acid can also increase the lifespan of cells by increasing the permeability of cell walls and receiving or donating electrons.
- Improves Cognitive Health. We can’t wait to see more research done on the effects of fulvic acids on cognitive health, because the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease published a study in which fulvic acid was shown to protect against cognitive impairment. Fulvic acid may even halt the advancement of Alzheimer’s disease, according to the researchers!
Fulvic acid is available as a supplement. It is frequently mixed with water, turning the water black and resulting in an unappetizing-looking beverage! Alternatively, UB Super’s protein superfood nutritional shakes provides fulvic acid and trace minerals to supplement the deficiencies in a modern diet—no strange-looking beverages necessary!
