WHAT IS FULVIC ACID?
Medical science tells us that everybody requires at least 90 known nutrients to maintain health. This includes 17 vitamins, 59 minerals, 12 amino acids and three essential fatty acids to be precise!
Earth was initially blessed with exceptionally fertile soils containing a wealth of minerals, trace elements and an abundant amount of microbes. Nature provided us with all these nutrients which would transfer from the earth to plants, then to animals and our bodies when we ate. In theory, this abundance of nutrients provided by Mother Nature should enable us to live long and healthy lives. However, as time goes on our bodies are becoming increasingly nutrient deficient, and we see more and more disease associated with these deficiencies.
The essential nutrients in the soil come from a highly nutritious layer of the earth called humus and peat. This layer is made of decomposed organic matter teeming with microorganisms working hard to break down the matter so plants growing in the soil can absorb the nutrients.
Scientists have found a natural compound in the soil that is a direct by-product of this microbial activity which they have hailed a ‘miracle molecule’, called Fulvic acid. Fulvic acid has always occurred naturally in organic plants and soils, yet its recent discovery and strong value are now just beginning to be recognised. Fulvic acid has been found to have a particular function – to transport the nutrients from the soil to the plants, and to activate these nutrients, so they arrive at the plant in a much more absorbable form.
In the absence of this golden liquid, Fulvic acid, the plants may have access to the nutrients, but their uptake is difficult and limited.
Unfortunately, modern farming practices such as applications of synthetic fertilisers, herbicides and fungicides have sterilised our soils. The pressure on land and the lack of organic materials being returned to the soil has severely limited our land, leaving it depleted of minerals and devoid of special chemistry that makes our soils alive including the proliferation of this miracle molecule. Minimal Fulvic acid in the soil means minimal Fulvic acid to bring nutrients to plants, animals and ultimately to human bodies; for plants to remain beneficial to us, they need to absorb more nutrients, provided to them via Fulvic acid.
FULVIC ACID FOR HUMAN BODIES
Just as it effectively transports nutrients for plants, Fulvic acid serves as an essential vehicle that carries nutrients to the right places in our bodies. It is so powerful that one single Fulvic acid molecule is capable of carrying 65 minerals and trace elements directly into our cells. You can see why Fulvic acid can have a dramatic impact on all types of diseases and ailments.
Preliminary findings show that the most modern-day prominent diseases and health problems have been dramatically affected in positive ways by supplementation with Fulvic acid and other preparations enhanced, extracted or chelated using Fulvic acid.
The good news is that we can add more of this miracle molecule to our soils, our plants and our diets right away, by applying Fulvic acid directly to our plants and soil in our gardens and on our farms.
Roots, Shoots & Fruits provide New Zealand growers with an organic Fulvic acid product called Mobilizer, which applies to all crops at all stages.
FULVIC ACID AND GROWING PRODUCE
Soil no longer has the abundant vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that it once did. Modern-day farming practices have depleted the soils, and much of our produce is no longer nutrient dense.
All growers know that to produce healthy crops they must nurture and feed healthy soil. Recent discoveries have shown that the phenomenon of Fulvic acid is the single most productive input in biological agriculture. This is indeed a game changer for the growing industry in New Zealand and around the world!
Fulvic acid is a natural compound which has survived through the many years of evolution on Earth. It is one of the best, and most essential substances to encourage healthy plant growth. It has chemical properties that allow plants to absorb more nutrients and increases water storage capacity within the plant. This translates physically into faster growing (with increased cell division), stronger, more robust plants that are juicy and plump, and able to withstand weather fluctuations and resist more disease. Roots are elongated (obvious benefits for root vegetable farmers!).
Applying Fulvic acid to crops has highly significant production and financial benefits to commercial growers, such as:
- Reducing Potassium and general fertiliser costs
- Increasing Silica absorption
- Increase number of flower sites produced by plants
- Reducing the need for fungicides and pesticides
- Increased efficiency of and uptake of nutrients from the soil
- Increase in plant health and strength
- Resistance to disease, fungus, mould and insects
- Stronger stem growth
- More nutrient dense fruit
- More intense oxygen absorption
- Increase the accumulation of soluble sugars
- Enhanced growth
- Stimulated immune system
- Detoxification of synthetic fertilisers in soil.
