How to take the products
Take with food
Absorption of the supplement ingredients is enhanced by the enzymes the body naturally creates for digesting and assimilating food. If your body isn’t producing adequate digestive enzymes, the Fulvic in all Vital Earth products will help assist crucial enzyme development which supports healthy digestion.
Since Fulvic enhances the absorption and utilization of all nutrients it comes in contact with, you will be getting maximum benefits from the nutrients in your food when fulvic is present.
And, most important of all...fulvic assist the body's natural ability to flush out any non-beneficial ingredients/toxins (MSG, chemical preservatives, additives, colorings, etc.) that may be in the food. That’s pretty important with today’s over-processed foods!
Sip your dosage all day long
You can also pour any of our liquids into a water bottle and sip them throughout the day. This way you’re feeding your body small doses all day long. This is excellent for absorption also.
If dealing with a difficult health challenge
When dealing with a significant health challenge, our lab suggests taking the mineral products on an empty stomach. This sends the minerals directly into the areas of your body that need support, focusing their power on strengthening weakened cells and systems. Some people find it helpful to double up their dosage ... taking one dose with meals and one dose in-between meals.
Can I mix all the liquids together?
Absolutely! In fact that’s the most convenient way to take them. Pour all the liquids together in a pitcher, stir, and pour this combined mixture back into the bottles. Then, for your daily dosage, take one capful for each bottle you mixed together.
Example: if you mixed Fulvic Minerals, Super Multi, and Cal-Mag Liquid, you would simply take 3 capfuls from one of the “mixed up” bottles.
Can I take the supplements on an empty stomach?
It’s not the best way to do it, but yes you can. Non-breakfast eaters always ask us this! Most people can take all the products on an empty stomach with no burning or upset because we put Fulvic in all our products which assists enzyme/digestive activity. Also, there are no binders, fillers, or additives, which are what generally cause stomach upset.
What about taking them just before going to bed?
Taking Cal Mag Liquid, and/or any of our Humic mineral products before bedtime will promote restful sleep. Super Multi and Fulvic can be energizing, so they are better taken in the morning or at least a few hours before bedtime. You may have to experiment and see what works best for you individually.
Do the products need to be refrigerated?
It is only necessary to refrigerate the liquids once they have been opened. Like any natural food, they will retain more of the nutrient content if they are refrigerated once they are exposed to air. After many months, if a bottle has been “forgotten” at the back of the refrigerator for example, there is no danger of the product “spoiling”, but instead some of the more delicate natural substances may start losing nutritional potency… but remember the products started out at higher potencies than most other products on the market.
Can I take Vital Earth products while on prescriptions?
Yes, but don't take them at the same time. Please allow at least 2 hours between taking your supplements and your medications. This will allow your body to assimilate each independently.
Alternate uses for Fulvic and Humic
Always keep a bottle of Humic or Fulvic in the fridge and here's why...
Humic and Fulvic can be used for infrequent indigestion and to support already normal digestive function.
If you’ve eaten an especially "chemical filled" meal:
Maybe you went to dinner at a friend's house and they served bottled salad dressing (high fructose corn syrup, MSG, vegetable oils), a flavored rice side dish (MSG in multiple forms, colorings, artificial flavorings), and meat raised with growth hormones and antibiotics, then you drank a few glasses of wine laden with sulfites... and now you don't feel so good! Take a couple capfuls of Humic or Fulvic before you go to bed to assist your body's natural ability to flush all those toxins and chemicals from your system. You'll thank yourself in the morning!
External uses for Humic and Fulvic:
Humic and Fulvic are beneficial topically as well. They can benefit the body's natural healing of abrasions, cuts, wounds, insect bites, and numerous other skin complaints. They may neutralize poison ivy and poison oak, and may assist with normal healing of burns with a minimum of scarring. (Put it in a spray bottle or dab it on with a cotton ball)
