Major attributes of Fulvic acid

World's finest electrolyte

Fulvic acid is an organic natural electrolyte that can balance and energize biological properties that come into contact with it. An electrolyte is a substance that is soluble in water or other appropriate medium that is capable of conducting electrical current.

The power of an electrolyte has been shown in repeated tests on animal cells (giant amoeba), to be able to restore life in what researchers termed "a beautiful demonstration" and "astonishing". When the electrolyte potential was taken away, during the test, the cell ruptured and disintegrated into the surrounding fluid causing death. Upon reintroducing electrical potential the cell reconstructed and became active and healthy.

It was also determined in studies, that similar results could be expected of the progressive weakness among humans that results from unchecked hemorrhage, overwhelming emotions, uncontrolled infections, unbalanced diet, prolonged loss of sleep, and surgical shock. These examples are all accompanied by a steady decrease in electrical potential that eventually is reduced to zero at death. These studies show convincingly that that the physical well being of plants, animals, and humans is determined by proper electrical potential.

Fulvic acid has proven to be a powerful organic electrolyte, serving to balance cell life. If the individual cell is restored to its normal chemical balance and thereby, in turn, its electrical potential, we have given life where death and disintegration would normally occur within plant and animal cells.

Promotes electrochemical balance as both donor and receptor

Fulvic acid is available at times as a donor and at other times as an acceptor, based on the cell's requirements for balance. One of the reactions that occurs is always an oxidation reaction in which the chemical species loses electrons as a donor. The other reaction is a reduction in which the active species gains electrons as an acceptor. Trace mineral enzymes in the fulvic acid electrolyte may serve as electrodes.

Most powerful natural free-radical scavenger and antioxidant known

Free radicals of fulvic acid behave as electron donors or acceptors, depending upon the need for balance in the situation. Fulvic acid can in the same way take part in oxidation-reduction reactions with transition metals.

Complexes and dissolves minerals and trace elements

Enhances nutrients

Transports nutrients

Catalyzes enzyme reactions

Fulvic acid has close association with enzymes

Increases assimilation

Stimulates metabolism

Detoxifies pollutants

An important aspect of humic substances, including fulvic acids, is related to their sorptive interaction with environmental chemicals, either before or after they reach concentrations toxic to living organisms. The toxic herbicide known as Paraquat is rapidly detoxified by humic substances.

Dissolves silica

Synthesizes or transmutates minerals

Enhances cell division and elongation

Enhances the permeability of cell membranes

Increases metabolism of proteins

Catalyzes vitamins within the cell

Chelates all monovalent and divalent elements that it is exposed to
