Morningstar Minerals Vitality Boost HA
Fulvic and Humic Acid Mineral Supplement
Vitality Boost HA is a rich source of bio-available fulvic acid, humic acid, and micro- and macro-mineral nutrients. Fulvic and humic acids are organic compounds that act as organic mineral carriers and detoxifiers. Research results suggest that fulvic and humic acid complexes enhance mineral and trace element uptake, supporting the maintenance of mineral and trace element while chelating heavy metals along the intestinal tract, reducing stress on the digestive system.
The only way the human body can benefit from mineral nutrients is if they are available to be absorbed. Fulvic acid enhances this absorption process by enabling minerals to pass through cell membranes. The average plant derived mineral is less than 0.00001 micron in size, conceivably the size of a red blood cell. The body is made up of 100 trillion cells that need constant mineral nutrients to support the energy level required for healthy, vigorous life. Fulvic acid is the transporter to the body’s cells and humic acid is the carrier of minerals, trace elements, and amino acids.
What are humates, humic acid, and fulvic acid?
Humate (carobonatious shale) is formed from massive deposits of prehistoric vegetation. These layers were laid down over thousands of years through the natural processes of life and death. The acid complexes found in humate and in the soil and plants around us are referred to as humic substances.
The beneficial substances found in humate are predominately carbon, chelated minerals, amino acids, and humic and fulvic acids. Perhaps the most important humic substance is fulvic acid, the beneficial properties of which have been documented by a number of universities and scientists around the world.
Fulvic acid is a part of the humic structure of rich, composting soil. It is created by microbes working on decaying matter in a soil environment, hence it exists in all rich soils that have not been degraded through modern farming methods. Fulvic acid also is found in plants, which take it into themselves and use it in their metabolism, and then pass it on to us when we eat plants rich in fulvic acid. Fulvic acid is found in usable form in humate as well. Fulvic acid from humic deposits usually carry 60 or more minerals and trace elements in organic complexes that are necessary for life.
Where does it come from?
Vitality Boost supplements are formulated from naturally occurring fresh water humic shale mined from the Fruitland Formation in northwestern New Mexico. These minerals, rich in natural organic humates, are what remains of a shallow freshwater sea that existed during the time of the dinosaurs.
How does fulvic acid work?
Minerals exist naturally in metallic and organic forms. The human body is not designed to absorb and use minerals in metallic form and can only absorb these minerals when they have become bio-available, a process called chelation. Fulvic acid derived from humic substances chelates valuable minerals, such as calcium, iron, and magnesium, bonding with them to form new organic mineral complexes that can be utilized by plant and animal metabolisms. These new organic mineral complexes can easily pass through the cell’s semi-permeable membrane and perform metabolic functions that minerals in metallic form cannot.
The chelation process of fulvic acid does not need to take place in the soil or in a plant, but can occur in our stomachs just as effectively.
Why should I take humic acid and fulvic acid?
People taking humic and fulvic acid supplements have reported increased energy, higher stress tolerance, improved disease resistance, and faster recovery from injuries
Recent laboratory research has shown fulvic acid to be one of the most efficient cellular electrolytes known to mankind. Researchers believe that cellular processes operate at peak efficiency in the presence of fulvic acid. Humic and fulvic acid have been also been demonstrated to be highly efficient chelators of minerals and trace elements for transport through cell membranes.
Further testing also suggests that humic and fulvic compounds are also very effective at neutralizing the toxic effects of heavy metals and other potentially harmful byproducts, for proper cell health.
Why should I take Vitality Boost HA?
USDA studies show a decline of up to 80% in minerals in the foods we eat. Modern farming’s heavy use of artificial fertilizers has demineralized much of the soil without providing any replenishment. In addition, these fertilizers have eliminated much of the naturally occurring humic and fulvic acids in the soil, the end result being that the soil is not only mineral poor, but what minerals there are cannot be absorbed the plants, and thusly won’t make it into our systems.
The human body needs a constant source of hydrogen, oxygen, minerals, trace elements, enzymes, and amino acids to repair and properly maintain itself. Our present food supplies are woefully inadequate at delivering these essential life sustaining compounds.
Vitality Boost HA provides a powerful boost of over sixty naturally chelated trace minerals and amino acids, when, combined with humic acid and fulvic acid, help to provide your body with the minerals it needs for optimal health.
