Tip 2: The Deposit Location Determines the Quality & Quantity of Fulvic Acid
In our previous blog, Tip #1 explained the importance of selecting a prehistoric deposit for the most bioactive fulvic and humic acid. See Tip #1.
Tip #2: The composition of each deposit can vary considerably from source to source due to age, pressure, elevation, and exposure to other conditions over time.
The quality of a humic and fulvic source depends upon the ratio of humic acid to fulvic acid, the naturally occurring trace elements, trace minerals, organic acids, and electrolyte activity as well as other naturally occurring characteristics like polyphenols and flavonoids. A source that presents all these qualities attests to its bioactivity and organic composition. For nutraceutical and functional food applications, this data is crucial in choosing a high quality fulvic or humic ingredient source. Each supplier of fulvic and humic acid should provide you with this substantiation.
The quantity is the percentage of fulvic acid and the type of fulvic acid.
Fulvic acid (FA) comes in two forms. Fulvates – FA molecules attached to mineral salts – and Free-Form FA – fulvic acids not attached to minerals. Both perform beneficial biological functions. Both forms of fulvic acid are important for engaging an increase in how your formula is utilized or metabolized by the body.
This is the real potential of fulvic acid – a one-two punch for potentiating other formulas – on one side, fulvic acid delivers trace minerals lost in our processed diets, it chelates with heavy metals in the body to eliminate them and on the other side it performs chemistry with the molecules in your formula for better absorption. And that’s just the fulvic acid portion, MLG-50 has thirteen other organic acids, and 22 flavonoid antioxidants – activating stress recovery, energy, better hydration, and biological processes. This is also a true differentiator with providing additional nutrition benefits to products.
Don’t Take Our Word for It!
Make sure any manufacturer of humic and fulvic liquid or powder can show you a third-party certified lab analysis, showing the standardized Lamar or ISO method of their product’s fulvic acid quantity and trace mineral, organic acid profile. With this information, you can easily find the humic and fulvic acid ingredient that is right for your application.
We always say, the best things in life start with the best material, like fine wine or amazing coffee, the first step is the best ingredient. MLG-50 is one of the best fulvic products in the world that cannot be synthesized or reverse-engineered.
Whether your products fall under the categories of nutraceutical, beverage, functional food, or body-care, fulvic acid may very well be the supplement to set you apart, to truly assist you with helping your customers reach optimal health.
