WHAT IS FULVIC ACID?
Fulvic acid is an organic acid that is found in fruits and vegetables. There are two types of fulvic acids: fulvates (salts of fulvic acid) and free-form fulvic acids (pure fulvic acid).
FAMILY TREE OF POLYPHENOLS
Organic acids like these are what gives fruits and vegetables their nutrient density. They can remineralize water and replace or replenish missing trace minerals in our diet.
Fulvic acids are a family of polyphenols, but not all polyphenols are fulvic acids. In the literature, many
of the studies involving fulvic-acids are referred to
as studies involving polyphenols; as you delve into
the study you can realize that flavanones or flavonals are being studied. See the schematic to clarify the
FA family tree.
FA are naturally ionically charged, which allows them
to bond with trace minerals in their environment. Mineral-bound fulvic acids are known as fulvates. In biological systems, fulvic molecules reduce the surface tension on the outer cellular membrane to permit
an increase of oxygen and micronutrient absorption.
FA are considered a vehicle for the absorption of nutrients, since they chelate minerals in the foods we eat. FA molecules donate electrons to free-radicals, which classifies them as antioxidants. The 33 organic acids in our MLG-50 product function as antioxidants.
Over 33.9 million years, our deposit has developed into a complex of 33 organic and amino acids, 70+ trace minerals and other synergistic components not found in other sources of fulvic material.
