At Stories Behind Things we are always curious to learn about new wellness topics and trends. So when FLVC told us about Fulvic acid, we had to learn more! After a bit of research and a lot of reading, we are excited to share everything you need to know about Fulvic acid. Let's get to it!
Fulvic acid is known within the wellness industry as the super power compound for your overall health. is a product of decomposition and formed through geochemical and biological reactions, such as the breakdown of food in a compost heap. It can be extracted from compost, soil, and other substances to be processed into a supplement. The truth is not many people have heard of it and it's not within the mainstream industries. That’s because, historically, humans received enough fulvic acid from the foods we naturally ate.
We sit down with FLVC, a Canadian wellness brand who specialises in organic fulvic and humic acid supplements, created by nature to support microbiome health, energy, mood and healthy glowing skin. FLVC are proudly sourced from Canadian soils and extracted with clean technology.
So back to basics, what is fulvic acid?
Fulvic acid is an organic, naturally-occurring chemical compound found in the earth’s soil, and is a bioavailable mineral essential for your overall health. It can also be found in certain foods. Foods highest in Fulvic acid will be those found growing in healthy soils such as Radishes, Beetroots, Parsnips, Carrots, Turnips, as well as foods grown in large bodies of natural water such as Seaweed and Kelp.
FLVC share that “Fulvic acid aids the body by helping us absorb and use other nutrients such as phytonutrients, fatty acids, and minerals. By improving how cells in our body use items they need to thrive, fulvic acid has been thoroughly studied for its antioxidant
, and neuroprotective
properties, among many others.” This is what got us wanting to learn more!
Created from millions of microbes decomposing plant matter. This decomposition process is crucial to creating nutrient-rich soil, and skipping this step is the reason why much of our soil is now lacking in fulvic acid and other humic substances that our bodies need.
