Fulvic acid

Fulvic acid benefits digestion and helps the body absorb nutrients from food. In a perfect world, our food would naturally contain high levels of fulvic minerals from the soil, but this is not usually the case with our modern food supply.

Consequently, a majority of Americans (and many others in the developed world) are deficient in a variety of minerals, and the epidemic of gut problems makes it difficult for many people to properly assimilate nutrients, even if those readily available in food.

Fulvic acid is naturally high in electrolytes and antioxidants, which also explains how it helps nutrient assimilation. There is also some evidence that these substances can be helpful in helping the body fight SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) since they are a source of native probiotics and prebiotics that remain in the digestive system and help the body maintain a beneficial bacterial balance. (Many strains of probiotics are temporary and are eliminated in the stool.

Native probiotics, since they stay in the gut, can be taken in smaller doses and often lead to rapid change in gut bacteria.
