Primal Edge is powered by Humic and Fulvic Acids!

What is Fulvic Acid?

Fulvic acid is beneficial in part because as plants and other living things absorb high levels of fulvic acid, their biochemical reactions are sped up and become more efficient. Enzyme activity increases and cell membranes become more permeable.  Water is able to enter cells at an above-normal rate. This is beneficial for both plants and animals by promoting balanced hydration and allowing the body to pass unwanted toxic substances.

Ingestion of fulvic acid is known to increase the ability of a cell to release toxic metals. Australia’s Ecotoxicology Program found that when fish swam in water with fulvic acid, their aluminum toxicity levels were up to six times lower than otherwise.

Responsible dietary habits and proper nutritional supplementation are measures generally believed to support good brain health. According to the University of Chile’s International Center for Biomedicine, fulvic acid has properties that may help protect against cognitive impairment.

What is Humic Acid?

Humic substances are produced when composted organic matter biodegrades. These highly potent, plant-based minerals are a vital component of healthy soil — which is why farmers have used humic and fulvic acids to keep their plants healthy since ancient times.

Over time, the intensive farming practices of industrial agriculture have stripped beneficial minerals from the soil our food is grown in. It’s no surprise, then, that our diets today are seriously lacking in these basic building blocks of life.

Just like it does in soil, humic acids help (the body take up) nutrients.  It acts as a dilator that increases cell permeability, which allows an easier transfer of minerals. So if you are eating great stuff, it helps with the uptake of that great stuff into your cells, ensuring all the nutrients you eat are bio-available.

Several recent studies, including a series of reports published in 2005 by the Institute of Animal Nutrition at the University of Leipzig, are exposing the potential power of humic acids.
