Can't decide which one to take?

We frequently tell our customers who can't decide which product to take to "listen to your body". Most people actually have a sense of whether they feel toxic, as if their body contains something they want to remove (try Humic)….or whether they feel that something is missing and they need to add something (try Fulvic). Using that same concept:

• Humic: provides natural detoxification

• Fulvic: supports the functions that enable natural healing

The simplest way of looking at the products is to decide whether you want to get a fresh start with natural detoxification, or are looking for something to defend a healthy system and sustain vibrant energy and healthy nutrition. And if you want to do both, then you can certainly take full doses of both Humic and Fulvic at the same time. A good deal of our customers looking to maintain optimal health take both products at full or double doses instead of choosing between one or the other. There is never any danger of “getting too much” because all our minerals are 100% plant derived; therefore it is impossible for them to build up as a toxin in the tissues like metallic or clay based minerals can. Plant based minerals enhance and boost the effectiveness of all other supplements they’re taken with.


Benefits of Humic:

Humic assists healthy digestive function and enhances the body’s natural ability to detoxify harmful compounds. The modern diet is nutrient deficient and full of unhealthy chemicals and additives. Humic Minerals help nourish your system while supporting the natural removal of MSG, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, environmental metals, and more. It also reinforces healthy immune function, and is vital as a pre-biotic for a healthy gut.

Benefits of Fulvic:

Fulvic is very powerful for the reactions it enables throughout the body. It nourishes cells by transporting a higher quantity of nutrients directly into cells, providing cellular energy and helping to balance all the body’s natural functions. This assists resiliency and boosts natural defenses to maintain optimal wellness. Fulvic can be described as "adaptive", to properly maintain the body’s healing systems, due to promoting the natural energy of cells


Fulvic and Humic extracts are a concentrated blend of all the minerals and trace elements found in an immense array of ionic plants





Ionic minerals from a fresh water humic source material (plant matter). Contains approximately 72-78 naturally occurring plant derived trace minerals in  an unaltered ionic solution.
Humic encourages normal cell function, assists the body's natural healing ability, and helps protect against typical oxidative stress.  They assist with the neutralization of free radicals and support normal cell function.   Humic is also known as lignite, and has characteristics similar to shilajit.

Humic Minerals are quite dark and have an earthy flavor. When diluted in a little water it becomes very mild. Alkaline pH of between 9.0 to 9.5.
100% Fulvic in solution. Fulvic is a natural component within Humic minerals. Using a gentle proprietary extraction process, we have isolated the Fulvic from our ionic Humic source material and this is what we bottle - 100% Fulvic, in liquid solution.

Our 3 Step Recommendation:

Start with Humic Minerals to assist elimination of metabolic waste, toxins and chemicals, and to support the body’s already normal detoxification processes. For best results, use for 2-3 months to assist your body’s natural detoxification of environmental metals, preservatives, MSG, chemicals, and more

After detoxing, switch to Fulvic Minerals to revitalize the entire body; neutralize free radicals, energize, alkalize and support healthy cell function. Fulvic can be used indefinitely, or you can switch to Mineral Blend after 2-3 months if desired.

Finally, when you’re at a maintenance point, switch to Mineral Blend to support a strong immune system on a daily basis. Mineral Blend is perfect for the whole family.



Vital Earth’s minerals come from freshwater-sourced Humic material. Humic is the original ionic whole-food plant-based substance from which fulvic is extracted. Fresh water minerals have a lower molecular weight than salt water mineral extracts, and are easily absorbed by cells because of their small molecular size. Vital Earth’s Humic is found in an isolated area high in the mountains of New Mexico.

All Vital Earth’s mineral products are ionic plant matter and are gently extracted with nothing but cool, purified water. No chemicals, high heat, or pressure extrusion are ever used in our extraction process. Our gentle processing, which is unique to Vital Earth products, preserves and protects the precious humic and fulvic at every stage. Because we have not added any vile tasting chemicals, flavoring is completely unnecessary. We like to say “completely natural from the Earth to the bottle”.

After looking at the literature of competitor products, customers sometimes ask whether our products can cause organ damage or damage to any bodily system. The answer is NO! Fulvic and Humic processed without chemicals have been proven to be safe and beneficial to all systems of the body, are non-toxic to internal organs, and are highly advantageous to all cleansing and purifying functions within the body. Although Fulvic and Humic appear to have very similar characteristics, they each offer specific targeted results to health challenges.

Humic: Humic is the powerhouse - it does the big jobs. Humic goes to work in the gut helping to improve the break down of nutrients and assisting the body in attacking toxins prior to them entering cells. The immune system is relieved of dealing with them and allowed optimum performance for maintaining a healthy state. The structural complexity of Humic makes it a remarkable asset for maintaining natural vigor. It inherently offers incredible digestive support as well.

Fulvic: Fulvic’s function is to balance and provide normal energy to all cell life and biological properties it comes in contact with. Fulvic “complexes and dissolves” nutritional substances. Once dissolved, they are then absorbed by the fulvic electrolyte, becoming bio-chemically reactive, mobile, and readily absorbable by the body. In simple terms, fulvic changes nutrients to a form that makes them ready to be fully absorbed by living cells.

If you can restore individual cells to their normal chemical balance and electrical potential, then you have given those cells life. Natural Fulvic is a crucial factor in maintaining the strength of all the body’s natural healing functions.


It’s commonly known that health challenges are rampant today because people are so deficient in fulvic and humic minerals, trace elements, and nutrients they contain. Because of our gentle cold-processing, high fulvic and humic content, and and no added ingredients , our mineral products are uniquely suited to maintaining the proper mineral levels nature intended.

Ionic minerals from Vital Earth are nature’s way of maintaining the healthy balance and energy of all normal cell life; they are literally supercharging cellular activity, and contributing to antioxidant support for cell protection from free radicals. When you put all these benefits together, they translate to sustained vibrant energy, vitality, and the maintenance of continued good health.
