Although Shilajit contains more than 85 minerals, the most powerful element of Shilajit is the Fulvic acid. Fulvic acid is a potent compound that is released in the process of decomposition of plants and herbs. When plants and herbs decompose, they produce millions of beneficial microbes and compounds including Fulvic acid. Since the origin of Shilajit is also the naturally decomposed plants and herbs, Fulvic acid is also found in Shilajit. On average, a pure Shilajit sample contains around 65% Fulvic acid. However, this ratio varies from place to place. Himalayan Shilajit is known for the highest Fulvic acid ratio because of the abundance of herbs and viable environment of the region. Apart from its own nutritional properties, Fulvic acid also contains other elements like vitamins, ketones, hormones, fatty acids, and flavonoid. All these elements carried out by Fulvic acid are considered very beneficial for human body. Following are some key benefits of Fulvic acid for men and women.
Cognitive Health Protection
The Journal of Alzheimer published a research about the effect of Fulvic acid on the cognitive (intellectual) health. According to the publication, Fulvic acid has a number of antioxidant properties with the potential to protect the human body from cognitive impairments.
Improved Immune System
Our immune system is heavily dependent on our gut health. Poor gut health means the poor immune system that does not provide the adequate resistance against the body viruses. Fulvic acid, due to its alkaline nature, has the ability to maintain the pH level in the body that ultimately provides resistance against various diseases.
Fight against Inflammatory Problems
Free radicals in our body cause inflammation problems. These radicals often penetrate into our body due to unhealthy food. Fulvic acid has the anti-inflammatory properties that fight the free radicals to reduce the inflammation problems.
Skin Protection and Repairing
Fungus/microbes like eczema are few of the main causes of skin problems. Journal of Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigative Dermatology has published a research about the effect of Fulvic acid on eczema. The research shows that Fulvic acid has even better chances of fighting eczema problems than many other solutions. This research shows the potential of Fulvic acid to be used as skin caring supplement.
Hair Growth Potential
Fulvic acid has the potential of improving the hair thickness and overall growth. Androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness is very common problem in men. Fulvic acid is believed to be a potential supplement that can reverse the problem.
Fulvic acid has the digestion and protein absorption properties. The breakdown of protein results into the amino acid which is the main source of muscle tissues growth and repairing.
Rich Source of Minerals
Fulvic acid contains approximately 70 types of different trace minerals and vitamins. These minerals and vitamins fulfill the mineral deficiencies of our bodies.
Aforementioned are some of the health benefits of Fulvic acid. Since Shilajit contains a very high ratio of Fulvic acid, its importance can’t be ignored, especially when the traditional natural sources of Fulvic acid are becoming obsolete due to modern technological experiments. Modern farming is a good example of this fact. The human body mostly obtains minerals and vitamins from different vegetables and fruits we eat. The modern farming where the fruits and vegetables are grown under artificial lighting and environment lacks the desired minerals and vitamins. Therefore, Shilajit can serve as an alternate source of minerals and vitamins. Himalayan Healing offers highest quality Himalayan Shilajit that can provide a very high ratio of Fulvic acid. Our product was tested in United States labs, showing 67% ratio of Fulvic acid.
