Fulvic acid is considered a kind of humus. It means that it is a natural compound found in soil, compost, marine sediments and sewage. Fulvic acid is a product of decomposition. It is formed by geochemical and biological reactions. It is mainly extracted from Shilajit and processed into a supplement. Shilajit is a substance secreted by rocks in certain mountains in the world, and its fulvic acid is particularly high. There are many studies that can provide the scientific basis for the potential benefits of fulvic acid in Shilajit.
Study 1: A study of 20 people living with HIV found that taking up to 9,000mg of Shilajit combined with traditional antiretroviral drugs could improve health compared to taking antiretroviral drugs alone. Moreover, fulvic acid seems to protect the liver and kidneys from the side effects of the drug.
Study 2: Study in mice showed that fulvic acid can be detected within 15mins after being taken orally to mice. Reaching a peak at 4 hours, and there is still a small amount of distribution in the blood after 72 hours. It is mainly distributed in the stomach and kidneys. The highest concentration is in blood and liver. The excretion rate in urine is higher than in feces. It proves that fulvic acid can be metabolized well in the human body.
Study 3: A preliminary 24-week study of Alzheimer's patients found that supplementing Shilajit and B vitamins stabilized brain function compared to the placebo group.
In general, Shilajit, rich in fulvic acid, is a natural health product. Although studies have shown that it may promote immune, brain health, as well as fight inflammation. But more researches are needed to fully determine their effectiveness and long-term safety. If you are interested in trying rich acid or Shilajit, consult a doctor first.
