Soil: How a healthy soil is connected to a healthy body and mind
Fulvic and humic acids are natural components of healthy soil and water, created as millions of microbes decompose organic plant matter.
Soil, a living organism, essential to life, is being stripped away by modern agriculture practices. This has resulted in a disconnect between the vitality of our soils and essentially our food. A rich and complex ecosystem, healthy soil is crucial for human life and well being, yet soils are being threatened by an unsustainable relationship to farming practices.
Plants derive their nutrients from the soil, and we derive our nutrients from plants, meaning that mineral deficient soils in turn lead to human and animal life lacking in essential nutrients.
Minerals play an important role in the function of our physical and mental health. They are specific kinds of nutrients that your body needs to function properly and a mineral deficiency can show up in a variety of ways.
Fatigue, lowered immune system, restless nights of sleep, and brain fog are just some ways the body communicates a nutrient-deficient system.
What minerals and nutrients can be found naturally occurring in fulvic and humic acid and why do we need them?
Zinc, an essential mineral playing a key role in rejuvenating the skin and aiding in the formation of collagen and keratin. Zinc helps to neutralize free radicals, combat oxidative stress, strengthen the immune system, and support a healthy metabolism.
Magnesium, a vital mineral providing more than 600 reactions in the body. Every cell in your body contains and needs magnesium to function properly. Increasing your daily intake of magnesium can lead to an increase in brain function, mood, energy levels, and a stronger immune system.
Copper helps maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function. Copper also aids in the body's ability to absorb iron.
Peptides are shown to have a beneficial role in reducing inflammation and acting as antioxidants, leading to healthier glowing skin.
Probiotics play a vital role in supporting the health of the gut microbiome. Research shows that a healthy gut is connected to a healthy mind by communicating with the brain through nerves and hormones. A healthy gut maintains general health and well being, by easing brain fog and increasing energy. Maintaining healthy gut flora can improve the health of your skin, reduce fine lines, and inflammation.
Fulvic and humic acids contain over 72 trace minerals, amino acids, and vitamins. Fulvic acid is bioavailable, which refers to the amount of a nutrient that gets absorbed into your bloodstream, meaning the available minerals will be delivered on a cellular level.
