In-Depth Information about Fulvic and Humic
What is Fulvic and Humic
The far reaching benefits
Why Vital Earth's Fulvic and Humic is so exceptional
What are Fulvic and Humic exactly?
Fulvic/Humic consists of a prodigious and array of powerful phytochemicals, biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, super oxide dismutases, enzymes, amino acids, and immune supporting nutrients. They assist with the neutralization of free radicals and support normal cell function.
Many of the substances that make up humic matter have yet to be discovered and catalogued among the known and documented organic chemicals. We are beginning to realize that what we know about Fulvic/Humic is just the tip of the iceberg.
In a nutshell...
Fulvic/Humic extracts are a concentrated blend of all the minerals and trace elements found in an immense arsenal of ionic plants. Fulvic/Humic balances and energizes all cell life and biological properties with which it comes into contact.
When fulvic and/or humic is present in the body, it "complexes and dissolves" nutrients (from both food and supplements) into the simplest ionic form, ready to be utilized by the body. Nutrients are absorbed by the fulvic/humic electrolyte, and become bio-chemically reactive and mobile. Fulvic and humic essentially prepare nutrients to inter-react with each other and extends the time those same nutrients are available to cells. In simple terms, fulvic/humic supercharges nutrients and changes them to a form that makes them ready to be fully absorbed by living cells.
Since fulvic easily passes through cell membranes, it transports these dissolved nutrients right into the cells. It can transport many times its own weight (up to 60x) in dissolved nutrients and elements, allowing a greater volume of nutrients to go to work in cells. It conditions cell membranes and makes them permeable so nutrients can more easily enter the cell. This permeability also allows toxic waste to leave the cells more readily. Fulvic assists healthy cell function.
Absorption and utilization of fulvic/humic once it is consumed is not dependent on a particular healthy state of digestion, alkalinity, or oxygenation. It can’t be damaged, restricted, or its benefits minimized by any unhealthy condition within the body. It is immediately and fully utilized, with far reaching effects enhancing every system of the body.
Fulvic/Humic is so complex, that, although there have been many attempts, it has never been successfully recreated in any laboratory. This ionic substance is the essence of nature’s synergy. Extracting and bottling Fulvic/Humic is essentially a great way of condensing the healthful vitality contained within life-giving, pure organic food.
Where does Vital Earth's Humic/Fulvic come from?
The source of Vital Earth's Fulvic/Humic is pure, whole food; living fruits, vegetables, and other plant matter that was buried, compressed, and highly concentrated in a natural vein. Through natural biological activity, these active living plant nutrients were converted into a highly concentrated ionic substance known as Humic. It was formed millions of years ago during extreme geological events and is now found in select areas around the world. This ancient composted material contains all the major and trace elements present when these organically rich vegetal deposits were laid down. It was preserved in its living, pristine form where it has been untouched and unaffected by pollution, chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers to this day.
Our Humic source material is from an isolated area high in the mountains of New Mexico. It comes from a vein that is about 15 to 20 feet below the surface. This fulvic/humic vein of plant matter is from a fresh water source. Fresh water fulvic deposits have the lowest molecular weight, and are much more bio-available. The fulvic nutrients are easily absorbed by cells because of their small size, as opposed to salt water minerals, which have minimal bio-availability.
Minerals extracted from this plant source are ionic and readily absorbable by our bodies because they are in a form that our bodies were designed to ingest...in ionic plant-based form - not rock, clay, or metal. With proper assimilation by the body, these ionic minerals are either fully absorbed, or if unneeded they are flushed from the system, leaving no unusable residue to build up in the tissues.
Humic is 100% natural, ionic essential minerals, trace elements, and amino acids. It is the original whole food based plant material from which fulvic is extracted. Humic is higher in mineral content than Fulvic because it is a whole food based liquid solution that contains all the trace minerals found naturally in organic plant material.
In contrast, when we process fulvic we extract only fulvic out of the humic. We completely isolate the fulvic so what we bottle is 100% fulvic in just enough purified water to keep it in a liquid state. Vital Earth’s proprietary, natural extraction creates a product with the highest Fulvic content available.
Why can't I just get all the minerals I need from my food?
Researchers have known for years that at least 90 nutrients are needed to maintain optimum health. These nutrients include a minimum of 60-84 minerals, 16 vitamins, 12 amino acids and 3 essential fatty acids.
Though plants manufacture their own vitamins, minerals are a different story. Whether a plant contains a sufficient amount of fulvic/humic minerals depends on the quality and quantity of minerals in the soil. Plants get their minerals by uptaking them into their root systems from the soil in which they are grown. Those minerals can only be supplied from the soil. If the minerals are not in the soil, they won’t be in the plant. And remember, vitamins can only be absorbed by the body if minerals are present to create the reactions that enable them to be activated by the body.
When you supplement with Fulvic/Humic you are literally feeding those missing nutrients to all the vital processes of your body. Fulvic/Humic enhances the body's natural ability to uptake nutrients and produce energy on a cellular level.
Fulvic Origin and Overview
In the beginning vegetation was lush and abundant
The earth was blessed with optimum organic growing conditions. The rich humus soil was teaming with millions of beneficial microbes that created Fulvic. The vegetation was lush and abundant, which is evidenced by ancient bio-active remains that geologists call Humic deposits.
Due to their large molecular size, plants cannot uptake undissolved minerals directly from the soil. In Mother Nature’s original plan, the beneficial microbes working at the roots of plants and trees created what we call Fulvic to dissolve the large mineral molecules. The Fulvic then assisted the plants in up-taking this dissolved mineral rich substance.
With the help of Fulvic, the minerals in the soil, and a little sunshine, these healthy plants were able to manufacture vitamins. The excess Fulvic that wasn’t used by the plants washed down into the drinking water, giving an extra dose of Fulvic, dissolved minerals, and vitamins to all who enjoyed it.
A healthy life was sustained for these ancient civilizations because their water was rich in Fulvic and dissolved complexed minerals; and their fruits and vegetables were nutrient rich.
And all was well with Mother Nature’s plan, until Man discovered that N-P-K (synthetic fertilizer) would force the quantity and size of food crops. Unfortunately, like pesticides and chemicals, N-P-K also kills the microbes in the soil that manufacture Fulvic.
The downside of throwing off the natural balance of minerals was ignored, and raising healthy plants took a backseat to raising big, beautiful “looking” and profitable crops. Without the protection and nourishment of Fulvic, diseases attack the plants, which necessitate the use of chemical pesticides that further destroy any beneficial microbes that may be lingering.
Because of this revolving cycle of chemical use in today’s farming, most diets don’t provide the amount of Fulvic needed to sustain health. Supplementation with Fulvic provides broad nutritional support and promotes optimal health.
Modern Farming Destroys Fulvic
Gone are the Minerals
Largely, modern agriculture has one goal – to produce an abundance of attractive, sale-able products. Since the farmer is paid by the bushel, yield is more important than nutritional content. To control the plant diseases that are a by-product of sick soil and forced yield, excessive amounts of synthetic nitrate fertilizers are applied to the soil … a practice that stunts and destroys the vital microorganisms that are essential in creating the fulvic that converts the metallic minerals in soil to plant nutrients.
Here's the problem:
- Ideally, plants should contain a healthy amount of both vitamins and minerals
- Plants manufacture vitamins themselves, but their minerals must be absorbed from the soil
- Plants require minerals to perform the vitamin manufacturing process
- Our soils are mineral (fulvic/humic) deficient
- So, if plants are unable to absorb adequate minerals from the soil, then they do a poor job of creating vitamins
When microbes are depleted from the soil, inorganic minerals cannot be converted into the organic minerals needed by plants. It's a complex, essential, and natural process that's been derailed by mass production farming practices; creating a serious deficiency in both vitamins and minerals in the produce we're eating. Until growers realize the importance of preserving natural balance in their farming methods, supplementation remains the best option for getting the nutrients you need.

Reported beneficial claims for external use:
Humic and Fulvic are beneficial topically as well. They can aid 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.
The immune system and toxic built up
Life today bombards us with an overload of toxic substances…they are the preservatives, chemicals, colorings and harmful additives in the foods we eat, noxious fumes in the air we breathe, chlorine and fluoride in our shower and drinking water, and the toxins present in plastics, carpets, paints and furniture that we use on a daily basis. Only the strongest immune system has the power to fight the enormous quantity of toxic elements we come into contact with every day.
Fulvic and detoxification
The nature of fulvic and humic make them a powerful tool against environmental and dietary toxins. In the body fulvic/humic attaches to and binds toxic environmental metals, pollutants, and other "foreign" substances and goes to work to change their bioelectrical polarity. Fulvic/humic will either convert them into a usable form, or will flush them from the system if they cannot be converted. As well as creating many beneficial reactions in the body, they are also converting harmful substances to forms that are useful by the body.
When you are actively removing the toxins that inevitably build up in the body due to normal daily life, you are freeing up your immune system to fight more serious threats.
Detoxifying Symptoms When Taking Fulvic/Humic
As Humic and Fulvic help enhance the body's natural ability to detoxify and remove harmful compounds, some people may experience unpleasant reactions for a few days. Even though you may not be feeling so great, detoxifying is actually a good thing because you’re cleaning out your system.
If this happens, we suggest you cut your dosage of minerals down to a level that eliminates the symptoms. Try decreasing your dosage down to 1-2 teaspoons for four or five days, then build back up to the full dose over the next two weeks. This will create a gentler detoxification, which is more beneficial and effective.
Advanced cell permeability also enhances hydration of cells because water is able to enter cells at an above normal rate. Better cell hydration has far reaching benefits; increased blood volume oxygenates cells, hydrated cells improve muscle contraction and better lubrication of joints, it promotes supple and more elastic skin, and guards proper kidney function for toxin removal. Better hydration helps water to bind with fiber in the large intestine to "keep things moving" properly. Even moods and emotional well being are improved with better hydration.
Fulvic assists in healthy body pH to assist oxygen uptake
Low blood oxygen leads to blood acidity. Acidity in the body contributes to low oxygen levels and is detrimental to health. The alkalizing minerals in fulvic and humic support balanced pH levels and assist in oxygen absorption. pH is how acidity and alkalinity are measured.
There are many liquid minerals on the market today that are highly acidic, with an acidic pH in the range of 4.0, because of their processing techniques. Once chemical acids have been used and the fulvic has been destroyed, nothing can be done to restore the alkaline pH, and the benefits of an acidic mineral will be minimal at best.
Because of our gentle, meticulous process that utilizes nothing but cool, purified water, Vital Earth’s fulvic/humic has a highly beneficial alkaline pH of between 7.0 and 8.6. We do not use any chemicals, high heat, or pressure extrusion; all of which contribute to creating acidity in a product. Our fulvic and humic is as natural as you can get, with the same pH levels that are present in the vegetation from which it is derived.
Fulvic/Humic fights free radicals
What is a free radical?
They have to do with atoms. All atoms have a ring around them composed of many electrons. Each electron ideally has a “buddy”, making the atom very stable.
Free radicals are created when an electron loses its buddy and is no longer in a pair. This opens the door to a chemical reaction whereby the unpaired electron seeks out another atom or molecule to bond with, creating a chain reaction of oxidation. These free radicals circulate throughout the body causing great damage to tissues and cells.
Our first line of defense against free-radicals is a generous supply of free-radical scavengers called antioxidants. Fulvic acts as a powerful antioxidant, helping to protect against typical oxidative stress.
There are three identified categories of free-radicals, and numerous identified free-radical scavengers. Each one of the free-radical scavengers eradicates a different category of free-radicals. Without Fulvic, it is very complicated to get the correct free radical scavenger in the correct amount. Fulvic is such a powerful, natural antioxidant that it can eradicate any form of free radical.
Humic/Fulvic and carbohydrates
Fulvic changes the way the body processes the sugars and starches that we call simple, refined carbohydrates. Fulvic promotes healthy weight management by assisting glucose to create immediate cellular energy, instead of stored potential energy in the form of fat deposits. Body weight may balance naturally because fulvic/humic aids chemical and hormonal balance, assists the proper metabolism of food, and diminishes mineral deficiency cravings.
When these changes occur, nutrient deficiencies are being corrected so the desire for more calories is diminished, along with cravings for foods that immediately convert to sugar in the body such as breads and pastas.
Fulvic makes cells more receptive to receiving nutrients
It conditions cell membranes and makes them more permeable, so nutrients can more easily enter the cell. This permeability also allows toxic waste to leave the cells more readily.
Fulvic is a powerful “transporter”
It is so powerful that it transports many times its weight in energized nutrients. One single fulvic molecule is capable of carrying 60x its own weight, or more, in nutrients, minerals and trace elements into the cells. And since fulvic makes cell walls more permeable, more nutrients are able to enter the cells when fulvic is present.
Digestion: Humic/Fulvic assists enzyme development
Enzymes are responsible for over 300 complex reactions in the body and are connected to every organ in the body. Whenever you put anything in your mouth, the taste buds quickly analyze its composition and trigger the appropriate digestive enzymes needed to break down that particular substance. Enzymes are also the life force behind the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
Production of digestive enzymes diminish with age, and unfortunately, a lack of digestive enzymes can overstress the digestive system making complete digestion of food difficult. This is where Humic and Fulvic comes to the rescue. Humic and Fulvic support healthy enzymatic reactions in cells and encourage maximum stimulation of enzyme development. Humic and Fulvic help trigger more enzymes; you get a better breakdown of food, which facilitates better absorption.
Help For Breathing Issues
Humic and Fulvic support a healthy respiratory system.
When properly nourished, individual cells are capable of producing many of their own amino acids, enzymes, and other factors necessary for all metabolic processes. Each cell burns its own energy, maintains itself, manufactures its own enzymes, creates its own proteins, and duplicates itself. It is essential to understand that the total metabolism of the body is the sum of the metabolic operations carried on in each individual cell. Humans can produce all but eight amino acids within their cells. Fulvic Mineral Complex promotes the natural production of amino acids within the body.
The Vitamin Connection
Leading researchers have been advocating for decades that increased dosages of vitamins and minerals support optimal health. However, it is crucial to remember that vitamins cannot complete their function in the cell’s metabolism without the presence of the appropriate and specific mineral co-factors and Fulvic. Therefore it is crucial that all the vitamins, all the minerals, and Fulvic are provided in a base-line supplement in order to receive consistent, significant results. Additional individual supplements can be added as needed.
SECTION 3 - Why Vital Earth's Fulvic and Humic are exceptional
Not All Fulvic Products On The Market Are Alike - Harsh Processing Kills Fulvic
Whether fulvic survives the processing all depends on how it's handled...
How fulvic is handled during the extraction process is crucial. At specific stages in the extraction, fulvic can be fragile and easily damaged. Some manufacturers use harsh, toxic chemicals to rush the process so they can turn out more product in less time. Unfortunately, this destroys the precious fulvic; the very ingredient they should be seeking to extract. Not only are you absorbing unhealthy chemical residues, but the product itself has none of the oxygenating, alkalizing benefits that an alkaline product such as Fulvic Mineral Complex has.
These products many times tout a high mineral concentration which is misleading to consumers. This is because they have chemically extracted high levels of isolated minerals but have killed the fulvic in the process. This type of harsh extraction produces a mineral product with unhealthy acidity levels reaching as low as 2.0 pH, plus you are consuming the chemical residue.
(As a side note, chemical processing is old technology left over from the 50’s. In fact, this chemical type processing is exactly how the name fulvic “acid” came about. The end product is highly acidic.)
Here’s a quick and general reference of the various effects of acid/alkaline pH levels in the body:
This chart refers to body acidity levels, not the pH level of products. The pH level of a product can affect the pH level of the body which is why it is important to beware of chemically induced acidic pH levels in products.
Body pH level
Body pH level
|7.0 to 7.4||Optimum health and energy|
|6.8||Beginning of metabolic acidosis|
Impaired digestion, hard to lose weight
|6.0||10 Times less oxygen to the cells|
|5.5||Extreme acidosis, cancer and degenerative disease|
100 Times less oxygen to the cells and life threatening
As you can see, maintaining the proper acid/alkaline levels in the body is essential to good health.
Because of our gentle, meticulous process that utilizes nothing but cool, purified water, Vital Earth’s fulvic has a highly beneficial alkaline pH of between 7.0 and 7.8. We do not use any chemicals, high heat, or pressure extrusion. Our fulvic is as natural as you can get.
Vital Earth's Gentle Extraction Method
At the end of a very lengthy, proprietary extraction procedure, using nothing but cold, double reverse osmosis, non-chlorinated, magnetically purified water, 80% of the nutrients from the original humic source, which includes a high concentration of fulvic, become suspended in solution in a large vat.
This "suspended" mineral-rich fulvic solution is then siphoned off the top of the vat. It then continues through another series of filtering stages, further isolating the fulvic through each stage. Finally, the finished fulvic is at last bottled in its purest form. What customers are getting is “100% fulvic in solution," carefully extracted from the rich humic source material.
The dregs in the bottom of the vat still contain a few nutrients. Because this is fantastic for plants, we give ours to farmers to put on their fields. Unfortunately, some manufacturers sell this byproduct to consumers, or use it over and over to create multiple batches.... kind of like selling someone a used tea bag. All the most valuable nutrients have already been extracted in the first batch.
The reason our Fulvic is so beneficial is our proprietary extraction method. We do everything possible during the extraction process to preserve the precious Fulvic because that is the ingredient that brings our customers such amazing health benefits. Also, we are one of the few mineral manufacturers to offer a 100% fulvic product. Our proprietary method of extracting only the Fulvic out of the Humic source material is unique in the market.
How to spot inferior mineral products
They'll have the following characteristics:
- Highly acidic pH because of chemicals used in the processing - chemical acids kill fulvic. Ask what the pH is
- If high heat was used fulvic is killed. Ask the manufacturer if heat was used
- Sweeteners and flavorings were used. These are necessary to mask chemical residues and high acidity
- Be cautious if a manufacturer lists a specific, high mineral content. This indicates the minerals have been isolated from the plant matter with chemicals
- If it's marketed as a "colloidal". Colloidal minerals have a molecular size that is too large to enter cells and are therefore not very effective
When looking for the best mineral product for YOU, please just go back to the basics...look for:
- Minimal, gentle extraction
- Natural ionic plant derived source
- A company you can trust
- Helpful and honest customer service
Color and taste can tell you a lot
The color of a gently processed fulvic should be a bright, clear golden color similar to cider. Humic minerals are darker in color.
Humic and Fulvic that have been processed using a gentle filtering method will not require any flavoring or sweetening to be palatable. The taste ranges from almost no taste at all, to a very slight hint of tanginess or tartness.
Even our most concentrated product, Super Strength Humic Minerals, has a strong earthy taste before it is diluted but doesn't taste bitter or have a chemical taste.
You may need to experiment with different manufacturers to find the product that works best for you and gives you the absolute best results. One thing we always tell our customers is that not every product is right for every body. Whatever choice you make, please remember the fantastic benefits that fulvic and humic offer - no matter where you get it!
No contest! Fulvic and Humic win over Colloidals every time
The size of a colloidal is 1 micron. Humic/Fulvic is so much smaller it is measured in Angstrom. An Angstrom is a measurement of very small things such as light beams, atoms, and molecules. 1/10,000 of a micron = 1 angstrom. This means that Humic/Fulvic is 10,000 times smaller than colloidal minerals.
With their large size colloidals are too large to pass through cell membranes, and therefore offer very little health benefit.
Vital Earth's liquid minerals are ionic, and plant based. They are smaller in size and more absorbable than colloidals. Ionic, angstrom-sized minerals can pass directly through cell membranes on contact. They are literally absorbed directly into cells without the need for any digestive process. Ionic minerals offer incredible benefits, but the benefits of colloidal minerals are marginal at best. There are no colloidal minerals in any of our mineral products.
Why a high mineral count means low fulvic/humic
The biggest benefit of fulvic minerals is that the minerals have been naturally complexed and dissolved into the fulvic structure by nature, not separated from it... which means the large mineral molecules have been prepared for maximum absorption by your body. (We'd love to take credit for this, but it's all Mother Nature!). All the minerals found naturally in the plants are still there, but they have been taken to the next step of bio-availability and are now part of the fulvic structure.
Products with an unnaturally high measured amount of minerals have been taken through some type of extraction process that has isolated the minerals from the source material. This is exactly what we try NOT to do!
Taking the minerals out of the humic source material destroys the benefits that “whole food, plant based" minerals offer. You want the minerals to be naturally retained within the fulvic, not removed from it. The mineral count of a good fulvic product will be in trace amounts, just as it is presented by nature. And the reason this is more beneficial is because it is the form created by nature...which is exactly what the body requires for full absoption into cells.
We do not formulate our Fulvic and Humic minerals in any way. Our Fulvic and Humic are extracted from the plant source using nothing but purified water. The content of the minerals present will vary according to the mineral content of the vegetation present in each batch, and is in the amounts that were in the original plant matter as found in nature. There are no metallic, rock or clay based minerals in our products. All the minerals in our products will be in "trace" amounts (measured in ppm), but you will be getting high fulvic and humic content.
This is a difficult concept to explain because the process is something that happens in nature... so when we take what nature has already prepared and make it available as a product, people expect it to be "formulated" and "standardized" to exact measured amounts. With fulvic and humic, the benefit comes from being natural, uncontrolled, and untouched by laboratory processes.
Why the "form" of a mineral is so important
All minerals come in two forms, organic and inorganic
Fulvic / Humic is NOT a heavy metal
There is a drastic difference in metallic, inorganic minerals versus plant-based ionic, organic minerals. Understanding the difference in mineral "forms" is one of the most difficult things to explain because people have been so conditioned to believe that certain minerals are bad, no matter what the circumstance. There is no distinction being made regarding the "form" of the mineral. Minerals in the wrong form are highly toxic, and minerals in an organic form are highly beneficial.
Your body can only absorb up to 10% of the wrong form (inorganic) minerals. The remaining 90% become an unusable substance that is rejected and left to build up, to potentially toxic levels, in your organs and soft tissue.
The problem with exposure to the "bad" forms of minerals (metallic elemental minerals) is that the body doesn't recognize them as food. When this happens, normal assimilation cannot happen. The body then rejects and stores this "mystery" substance in the tissues and organs, where it builds up and becomes toxic to the system.
Exposure to toxic elemental minerals is possible from a variety of unsuspecting sources; contaminated ground water, pollution, industrial activity, paint, etc. It is not uncommon to have whole communities of people with abnormally high mercury levels when there is a coal powered electric plant in their town, for example.
Fulvic / Humic is scientifically classified as "Vegetal bio-mass minerals" and does not contain any heavy metals
Since every single mineral within fulvic/humic comes from plants, the body readily recognizes them and immediately assimilates them; the same as it would assimilate the various minerals found in broccoli, lettuce, or fruit for example. Being ionic plant matter, they are fully utilized by the body, not rejected (and therefore stored in fatty tissue as a toxin) the way an elemental metallic mineral would. You never hear about people getting mineral toxicity from fruits and vegetables, even though they all contain a wide variety of minerals that are erroneously thought to be dangerous.
Organic minerals set in motion a variety of chemical reactions which allow vitamins and other essential nutrients to fuel our bodies. Without the proper form of mineral, these reactions are unable to take place, making it unlikely your body will absorb and use the vitamins it needs.
Organic minerals trigger essential biological reactions
Minerals we erroneously think of as highly toxic, such as lead, aluminum, or arsenic are actually very beneficial and necessary when they are consumed in their organic form. They serve to facilitate many bio-reactions that are only possible when they are present. Every single organic, plant derived mineral serves some sort of beneficial purpose. That's why a balance of ALL the minerals as they are presented in nature is very beneficial to the body. Organic minerals enable chemical reactions in the body, and trigger many beneficial processes. So, you can see that whether or not a mineral is toxic is totally dependent on the form it is in.
Why Liquids Are Superior
One of the strongest advantages of Vital-Earth’s formulas are their liquid form. Absorption of a liquid greatly exceeds traditional tablet or capsule supplements because absorption starts in the mouth. Sensors (taste buds) in the mouth determine what digestive enzymes are needed to process the food or liquid being consumed. By the time that substance travels down the esophagus and reaches the stomach, digestion, absorption, and utilization are well underway. As with any nutrient or supplement, the only way your body can benefit is if it is absorbed. Fulvic enhances this process with all foods, herbs, and supplements.
Fulvic makes elemental minerals and vitamins more absorbable by complexing them (refines, purifies, combines and re-refines) into ionic forms that are easily transported into and through cell membranes. Once the nutrients meld into the Fulvic complex, they become bioactive and bio-available.
