Fulvic Acid, also known as Shilajit, mumie, bitumen, pitch and Wu Jin San,
is a natural biological compound derived from decomposed organic matter that existed at the time of dinosaurs. Large quantities of ancient vegetation went through a transformation process similar to that of coal and diamonds. Soil-based Organisms (SBOs) would consume the decaying matter mixed in with the inorganic minerals in the soil. The excreted remains of this process were mineral like deposits called Humic substances and comprised a soil rich in the building blocks of life.
Plants’ numerous biochemical substances (e.g. carbohydrates, lipids, proteins & lignin) were transformed into Humic substances. Fulvic acid is found in varying levels in Humic substances and cannot be artificially synthesized. Thus, there exist no standard definition for Fulvic nor is there an accepted methodology to ensure standardized testing. Shilajit is popular Ayurvedic ingredient from the Himalayan mountains that contains large amounts of Fulvic Acid, but is not the same as Fulvic Acid as a standalone.
It is water soluble and possesses complex structures with active side groups yielding different physio chemical properties. Small quantities of Fulvic in water assist in the diffusion of nutrients into living cells, promoting electrical stability and a panacea for cellular health.
It functions as nature’s most effective free radical scavenger, binding harmful free radicals existing in skin and associative tissues. It has the ability to either donate or receive electrons based on the electrical potential of the surrounding cells. It is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, making it ideal for serious skin problems accompanied with irritation. A potent anti-inflammatory, Fulvic Acid alleviates itch within seconds.
Humic substances are geologically mined products. Mined products commonly contain heavy metal contaminates (e.g. cadmium, lead, etc). Fulom’s source of ‘Organically Certified Fulvic Acid’ is free of heavy metal contaminates, is routinely tested to ensure purity and is the only supplier of certified Organic and Kosher Fulvic Acid on the market.
