Fulvic Acid; Shilajit is Packed with it And More!

What the heck is Fulvic Acid? And where do you get it from? When it comes to Fulvic Acid, Shilajit has long been a source that has been trusted by many for generations.

Firmly rooted in Ayurvedic Medicine, this acid could be something that holds the key to solving a range of medical issues.

But this is not the only type of beneficial acid found in the black resin. Along with Humic Acid there are also Uronic Acids, amino acids, peptides, and lipids along with other metabolites that are plant based and more.

So, let’s get to know a little bit more about Fulvic Acid, and some of the other acids found in Shilajit resin that are of particular interest.

Fulvic Acid

Fulvic Acid is a substance found in very low quantities in specific conditions. Plant matter broken down by micro-organisms in soil with suitable oxygen levels will produce this acid. [1]

Fulvic Acid is used by the body for cellular metabolism along with other core functions. The low molecular weight of this acid makes it easy for your digestive tract to absorb.

This easy absorption process means Fulvic Acid can enter your body within a few hours of consuming it. The majority of health benefits that come from consuming Shilajit are due to its high Fulvic Acid content.

Something that has been slowly fading away in our food source, Fulvic Acid, in the form of Shilajit, has long been relied upon in Ayurvedic Medicine. As a precious gift from Nature, there is little wonder that it has not been able to be effectively synthesised to date. [2]

Fulvic Acid is believed to be a much more important ingredient than Humic Acid when it comes to activating the benefits of Shilajit. However, the combination of the two is the key that leads to more health benefits.

Humic Acid

Humic Acid is produced in the same manner as Fulvic Acid, through the breakdown of plant matter by micro-organisms.

It is a substance that helps plants grow through increased efficiency when taking in water and nutrients. High Humic Acid levels in soil has the potential to increase plant yield and growth.

Although Humic Acid is generally used for plants, it can be consumed by humans. There have been some studies that show consuming Humic Acids can be good for human health. As with all good things, however, too much Humic Acid can be toxic to humans.

Thankfully, Shilajit does not contain too much Humic Acid and is not to be considered toxic.
