These two acids have been found in good, rich soil since time immemorial and are a complex concoction of natures carbon rich substances that help the uptake of minerals in the soil and make the nutrients more bioavailable to the plants. But with the degradation of the soil over the past 10 – 20 years, many of the foods we consume just don’t have the complex nutrition our bodies need. Humic acid and fulvic acid does the same for our bodies as it does for plants. It helps make the nutrients we are consuming more bioavailable. It acts as a dilator, increasing cell permeability and increasing oxygen concentrations in the cell. To boot, humic acid is has high concentrations of zinc and magnesium, which are both essential for increasing collagen, allowing trace minerals and oxygen to be directly delivered to the skin.
A little goes a long way, and more isn’t necessarily better. As with plants, too much humic acid can be detrimental to health. Consult your physician.
