Fulvic Acid

Fulvic Acid is quickly becoming recognized as one of the key elements and scientific breakthroughs of the 21st century. Doctors and Scientist from around the world are discovering it's extraordinary potential. Here is a little exert from Natural News on Fulvic Acid:

"If you would like to live to a healthy, ripe old age, take a cue from some of the most long-lived (and robust) people on the planet by consuming a diet rich in fulvic acid. Formed over thousands of years from microorganisms' decomposed organic matter, fulvic acid is at once nourishing and detoxifying. Offering outstanding protection against cognitive impairment, heavy metals and numerous health complaints - including diabetes, inflammation and chronic fatigue - fulvic acid has kept the Himalayan communities of India, Nepal and Pakistan sharp and resilient for centuries.

Fulvic acid is normally present in healthy soils, which is then absorbed by plants. Unfortunately, through modern farming practices and use of agricultural chemicals, fulvic acid levels have dropped substantially over the years. Modern water treatment facilities further remove this important element from our food supply. Considering that fulvic acid is a formidable antioxidant, is mineral-rich and dramatically improves the uptake and utilization of nutrients, it's no wonder that disease in westernized countries is rampant as exposure to naturally occurring fulvic acid declines.

According to Dr. Edward Group, founder of Global Healing Center:

"Fulvic acid is beneficial in part because as plants and other living things absorb high levels of fulvic acid, their biochemical reactions are sped up and become more efficient. Enzyme activity increases and cell membranes become more permeable. Water is able to enter cells at an above-normal rate. This is beneficial for both plants and animals by promoting balanced hydration and allowing the body to pass unwanted toxic substances."

Dr. Group continues: "Ingestion of fulvic acid is known to increase the ability of a cell to release toxic metals.

So what is Fulvic Acid and why is it so good for you?

Fulvic Acid contains over 72 minerals, 9 vitamins and 18 amino acids and an abundance of other beneficial plant-source fulvic-humic acid nutrients that are nature's way of helping the body.
Fulvic Acid is found in the soil, which before commercialized farming, was abundant in top soil for growing vegetables and fruits rich in minerals. It is a derivative of microbial degradation of humid substance. In short microorganisms in the soil, essential to healthy plants.
Now our farming soil for the most part is mineral deficient because food quality is sacrificed for quantity. Today the application of excessive amounts of nitrate fertilizers, eliminate the indigenous microbial life within the soil. When microbial life is inhibited or destroyed, vital fulvic and humid acids are exhausted. More pesticides equal less and less of fulvic acid which is needed for healthy plants.

Sick soil=Sick plants=Sick people.

Fulvic-humic acid helps your body:

Slow down the aging process
Produce more energy
Balance cell life
Improve circulation
Control inflammation
Remineralize the body
Super-oxygenate the blood
Improve brain function
Revitalize libido
Increase endurance
Cause your cell walls to be more permeable to take in nutrients
Remove toxins and metals from the body
Repair regenerate and restore cells-Including skin and nails

The list is actually much longer than this. But I think you can read this and understand how important fulvic-humic acid is to the body.

Before commercialized farming we could get all of this from our plants, because they were getting it from the soil. But now we live in different times and we have to find other ways to take in this very vital nutrient.

Today companies are getting fulvic acid from areas of ancient deposits of lush plant matter that were buried and naturally decomposed millions of years ago resulting in pure form of organic matter.

Also in the Himalayan Mountains Shilajit is being harvested containing fulvic acid.

I continue to look for the most superb Fulvic acid I can find. Right now I am taking this particular brand. But I will update you if I find another brand that I think is better.

You can go to there website
or you can get it from Amazon.

Please do your own research on Fulvic acid and you will understand not only how important this is for a healthy body but the consequences, resulting in an unhealthy sick body.

It is very simple to take daily. You squirt 4 stopper full in a glass of spring water. It really doesn't have much of a taste. Very easy.

Check it out.

Our customers are experiencing firmer tighter skin, less wrinkles and an overall improvement in the texture and quality of their skin.

Radiant-A's base is made from Rosehip oil, which is a source of topical retinoic acid (vitamin A) in a natural bio-identical form.

In 1983 the faculty of Pharmacology and Chemistry at the University of Concepcion in Chile conducted a 2 year study with an emphasis and study on the healing action of the oil. The study was conducted on 180 patients with extensive facial scarring, acne scarring, deep wrinkles, sun damage, radiation damage, burns, surgical scars and a group suffering from pre-mature aging. The results were outstanding and remarkable. It was found that Rosehip oil with continual application, effectively helped with reducing the effect of scars and wrinkles, along with preventing advancement of premature aging and helped in regaining lost skin color and tone.

Later pharmaceutical companies caught on to the remarkable properties of this Trans-Retinoic acid, a derivative of Vitamin A and formed Retin-A. The prescription Retin-A has so many chemicals that it has been considered Toxic for human use in many arenas.

Borage and Beauty

This beautiful plant is a borage oil plant better known as a "starflower". It has been recognized and used for over 1500 years. Today the plant is best known for the oil that is extracted from it's seeds. It has the richest known source of an omega 6 essential fatty acid called GLA, gamma-linolenic acid, necessary for healthy hydrated skin.
Since a lot my readers like to know the science behind things, I will give you a small biochemistry lesson. But if you just want to read about the benefits, you can totally skip the next few paragraphs!!
In a nutshell, our body has the ability to produce GLA. But it must have linoleum acid, (LA), to do so as it's starting material. LA is an essential fatty acid that our body is unable to make and we must ingest LA as part of our everyday diet. Once you ingest the LA from an oil source, it is acted upon by an enzyme, D6D, which converts the LA to GLA.
Stay with me here, I am getting to the important stuff!!
Once LA is converted to GLA it goes a step further via some more biochemical steps and is converted to PG1, a key molecule for maintaining healthy skin. PG1 has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin and its is very important in regulating water loss and protecting the skin form injury and damage.
It has been shown that people with skin disorders, such as eczema, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis show a decrease in GLA. 
Basically, GLA is mandatory for healthy skin.
So what does Borage oil have to do with GLA? Used as a supplement Borage oil can supply the body directly with GLA and therefore allowing the production of normal levels of PG1which is essential for regulating inflammation and water loss.

Okay, finally the benefits!

Borage oil has been known to do the following:
1) Help clear up acne and rosacea by working to dilute the sebum, (a thick oily substance that is over secreted in some people with acne.)
2) Help reduce clogged pores.
3) Help treat Rosacea by reducing inflammation.
4) Help tighten the skin because of the tannins.
5) Help restore suppleness, elasticity and tone.
6) High in salicylic acid, for anti acne and anti septic qualities.
7) Helps rehydrate the skin.

I will have to say that I have been taking this supplement for 6 weeks and can tell a noticeable difference in the moisture level under the first layer of my skin. I believe it is a great supplement to add to your Real Raw Beauty routine, especially if you struggle with any type of skin disorders.

I did a lot of research to determine which one to get, but I will spare you the details of why one type is better than another. Here is the one I chose.

You can purchase this brand from Amazon.

I am so happy to have found this oil, especially now that I understand the importance that it plays in helping maintain healthy skin. But as I always say, do your own research and make your decision. Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time,
