Understanding Fulvic and Humic Substances: Their Benefits for Human Health

In recent years, fulvic and humic substances have emerged as powerful and potentially beneficial compounds for human health. Derived from organic matter such as soil, these substances offer a wide range of advantages for our bodies. In this blog, we will explore what fulvic and humic substances are, their potential health benefits, and how you can incorporate them into your daily routine (spoiler alert, we have the best source of Fulvic Humic in our store).

Fulvic humic concentrate - a mineral food

What are Fulvic and Humic Substances?

Fulvic and humic substances (from now we’ll refer to them in their combined form - fulvic humic concentrate) are components of humus, a dark, organic material formed through the decomposition of plant and animal matter in the soil. Humus is rich in essential minerals, trace elements, and organic compounds that are crucial for the growth and nourishment of plants. When extracted, fulvic and humic become super natural supplements, beneficial for both plants and humans.

NB. Supercharged Food’s Love Your Gut Fulvic Humic concentrate is a mineral, liquid food, approved by Food Standards Australia New Zealand (this may not be the case for other sources of fulvic humic).

Health Benefits of Fulvic and Humic Concentrate

Rich in Nutrients: Fulvic and humic concentrate are known to contain a plethora of essential minerals and trace elements that are often lacking in modern diets. These include magnesium, zinc, iron, and selenium, which play vital roles in various bodily functions, from immune system support to enzyme activation.

Improved Gut Health: Fulvic and humic concentrate can help promote a healthy gut environment by supporting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. A balanced gut microbiome is linked to improved digestion, better nutrient absorption, and a stronger immune system.

Enhanced Nutrient Absorption: These substances have the unique ability to chelate minerals, making them more bioavailable and easier for the body to absorb. This enhanced nutrient absorption can contribute to better overall health and vitality.

Lee Holmes, takes fulvic humic everyday

Lee Holmes, clinical nutritionist and author says “Of the many benefits of fulvic humic it’s the natural chelation of minerals that most impresses me. It’s all well and good to eat well and take supplements but if our body isn’t absorbing them effectively, it drastically reduces their effect. Conversely, when your gut is able to best absorb nutrients and hydration we get the most out of the good we put into our body. I take fulvic humic everyday. I pop 4-5 drops in my walkaround water bottle.”

Natural Detoxification: Fulvic acid, a component of fulvic substances, is believed to have natural detoxifying properties. It can bind to heavy metals and toxins, facilitating their removal from the body and reducing the burden on organs like the liver and kidneys.

Antioxidant Properties: Fulvic and humic substances are potent antioxidants, which means they can help combat oxidative stress and reduce cellular damage caused by free radicals. This anti-inflammatory effect may play a role in preventing chronic diseases and supporting healthy aging.

Improved Energy and Vitality: Many users report increased energy levels and improved vitality when taking fulvic humic concentrate regularly. They are thought to support cellular energy production, leading to a sense of overall well-being.

How to Use Fulvic and Humic Concentrate

Here are some tips for incorporating fulvic humic concentrate into your daily routine:

Start Slowly: If you're new to fulvic humic concentrate, begin with a low dose, say half the suggested on the pack, and gradually increase it over a week. Pay attention to how your body responds.

Follow Instructions: Always follow the recommended dosage instructions. If you have any specific health conditions or are taking medications, consult your healthcare provider before starting any new supplement.

Mix with water: there’s no taste so it’s easy to mix with water or juice. A Supercharged tip is to do as Lee does and add your daily drops into your water bottle and consume over a few hours. People also add them to smoothies or herbal teas.

Combine with a Balanced Diet: fulvic humic concentrate works best when combined with a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and other nutrient-dense foods. It will help you gain the most nutrients and hydration from them.

Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to support the body's natural detoxification processes. Again, fulvic humic concentrate will help your body absorb the water.

Fulvic humic concentrate is an intriguing natural food that offers a range of potential health benefits for humans. From supporting nutrient absorption and gut health to acting as antioxidants and detoxifiers, fulvic humic concentrate holds promise for those seeking to enhance their overall well-being. As with any supplement, it's essential to use them responsibly and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any underlying health concerns. By incorporating fulvic humic concentrate into a healthy lifestyle, you may discover a newfound sense of vitality and wellness.
