What is Humic?

Like Fulvic Acid, Humic Acid has a wide array of benefits to the body. Not to be confused with Shilajit, a popular natural substance comprised of mainly Humic and Fulvic. Fulvic and Humic Acid both contain over 72 plant-based ionic minerals, ideal for human health, and both offer their own unique benefits. 

There is a deep concern over continuing major declines in the mineral values in farm and range soils throughout the world.”

-Conclusion of the 1992 offical Rio Earth Summit from the United Nations

Fulvic vs. Humic

We’ve talked a lot about Fulvic Acid but Humic Acid is important because it also provides us with essential minerals necessary for life.

Naturally, we’d be reaching our required mineral levels through foods grown in mineral-rich soils. Unfortunately, modern commercial agricultural practices are soil-depleting with the use of chemicals like fertilizers and pesticides. These practices negatively affect the pH of the soil. Fulvic and Humic thus play an important role to remineralize our bodies. 

Fulvic and Humic Acids are organic compounds (ancient plants, vegetation, and fruit trees) used by good bacteria in the soil. They are the byproduct of an 80 million-year-old geological process that occurs when the right combination of organic matter combines with certain geological conditions, such as pressure and temperature, Humates are formed, leaving us with a mineral-rich Humic Acid. Both Fulvic and Humic have been shown to drastically benefit human health. We’ll go into depth next week on the benefits of Humic.

When purchasing supplements with Humic Acid, make sure it’s non-GMO and has not come into contact with acid rain, as this could affect the soil’s pH. Antony Hanes, a leading researcher, claims the Fulvic and Humic Acid from New Mexico in the highest quality in the world. We agree and source ours from New Mexico as well. Ambaya Gold is dedicated to providing the highest quality Fulvic and Humic on the market.
