Introduction

We are very excited to offer you our Fulvic experience while you and your horse/s will be able to witness the best balance in nutrition.

Nowadays, humic substances are used in agriculture, industry, environmental and bio-medicine in many parts of the world.

The development and production process of “Fulvic Enhanced ™ “products as a complimentary animal nutritional supplement has been an exciting one. Using nature’s most powerful and organic mineral substance, you will see how your horse heals naturally for better for improved performance and endurance, assisting to prevent degeneration and will also bind any harsh metals or chemicals and toxins to that they may be released and safely eliminated from the body.

Fulvic Health hold manufacturing rights under a proprietary blend including a Fulvic blend containing over 660 Carbon Atom bonds (This Vitrinistic Report is available from Fulvic Health) and we hold patent rights 2011/201567 in Class 5 : Pharmaceutical and Veterinary Preparations and Class 35: Business Services, Research and Information, Import-Export Agencies in relation to veterinary and pharmaceutical products and nutritional supplements of all kinds.

The dry powder is used effectively by horse owners to provide the essential minerals, trace elements, amino acids and chondro- protective building blocks that are essential for the betterment of your horse’s health. Our blends contain essential ingredients which aid keeping the digestive tract and gut flora healthy, which will naturally boost the animal’s immune system.

We have the advantage of aligning our production through a reputable Pharmaceutical Manufacturer who works under strict GMP production process, ensuring high quality with increased bioavailability to ensure you have a horse feed supplement that has many benefits all provided within one supplement.

 

Why Fulvic Enhanced™

Horses not only perform strenuous athletic tasks, but also live long lives as companion animals, providing pleasure and recreation, with considerable emotional investment in their training and well-being. As horse owners, we understand your love for your horses!

With this understanding, our product was developed with a unique blend of Fulvic and Humic Acid, proven to be an ideal supplement for horses under the stress of training, performance and growth. Horses on Fulvic Enhanced™ will soon enjoy gleaming coats, bright eyes and healthy skin, bones, joints and hoof and frequently owners have reported that the horse has become more content, while building their strength to perform their best.

Fulvic Enhanced™ can pass any quality assurance scrutiny and we are happy to share with you our recent analysis reports to prove the exceptional macromolecule elements that are present.

This product is so much more than you realise!

Pharmaceutical companies have been rushing to patent synthetic versions of this natural substance, and dozens of patents have been approved. Yet Mother Nature has them all beat, they’ll never be able to match her handiwork because this substance is far too complex!

Our product may be useful in assisting in the repair and regeneration of cartilage, connective tissue, ligament and tendons, a great benefit for performance animals. Regular use may be beneficial for horses that depend on freedom of movement, suppleness, flexibility, and the absence of minor aches and pains and swelling in joints and limbs. Older animals or those suffering from joint problems may also benefit from continued use.

Exercising horses have unique nutritional needs imposed on their bodies. Exercise creates changes in requirements for all nutrients; however, their energy demands are affected the most. As intensity of their exercise increases, so does the demand for immediate sources of energy in both horses and humans. Are you replacing what is lost?

Horse owners or trainers wishing to reduce anxiety during events, or to assist in “taking the edge off”, when undertaking their range of activities will find that Fulvic Enhanced™ will allow their animal to be more predictable and calm, responding better to outside stimulus. You will experience an incredible sense of euphoria and calmness while on our supplement and your horse will feel the same way too!
Fulvic Acid is highly bio-available and readily absorbed into the animals and human system, another reason why the rider should supplement with our product for humans.

Can be used to help balance a horse’s diet and pH levels, helping to repair poor quality hooves, and replenish electrolytes lost in sweat due to exercise or a hot and humid climate. It has been reported that horses travel better with less electrolyte loss with reduced stress and behavioral factors.

Horses like other athletes are individuals and must be managed as such if maximum athletic performance is to be achieved. Live weight gain is improved during our supplementation with increased muscle and bone mass.

Many riders have stated their improved endurance and recovery after events. They feel calmer yet more focused during a show. Aching joints and pain from old injuries becomes more manageable leaving you to enjoy your riding! Why not let your horse enjoy these benefits too!

 

 

What are Humic Acids and Fulvic Acids?

Referred to as the “the nutritional breakthrough of the 21st century”, Humic substances produced on a commercial scale are used in veterinary and human medicine. Several studies of the medicinal properties of humic materials have been reported (Mund-Hoym 1981, Brzozowski et al. 1994).

They are compounds arising from the physical, chemical and microbiological transformation of bio molecules meaning they are compounds arising from the humification or breakdown of plant material over a long period of time. They are important because they constitute the most ubiquitous source of non-living organic material that nature knows. They are organic macromolecules with multiple properties and high structural complexity. It is known that their major functional groups include carboxylic, phenolic, carbonyl, hydroxyl, amine, amide and aliphatic moieties, among others. Due to this polyfunctionality, humic substances are one of the most powerful chelating agents among natural organic substances. (Reference: Journal of Applied Biomedicine 3: 13-24, 2005ISSN 1214-0287)

Burdon (2001) proposed that humic organic matter consists mainly of a mixture of plant and microbial constituents plus the same constituents in various stages of decomposition (i.e. plant/microbial mixtures of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and partially degraded lignin’s, tannins, melanins, etc.).

Fulvic Acid is an extremely bioactive low molecular weight yellow substance which is water soluble in both acid and all pH levels. It is made up of microbial exudates and highly protective immortal plant phytochemicals which are combined and recombined during the humification process.

It is evident that the mechanisms of the formation of humic substances can be slightly different, depending on geographical, climatic, physical and biological circumstances, respectively. So know this, not all Fulvic Acid and Humic Acid products have the same quality!

 

What are the benefits of Fulvic and Humic Acid blends that Fulvic Health offer?

 

Preventative medicine starts with good nutrition; the right supplementation programme will prevent the onset of disease and will improve the immune system which will ultimately reduce visits by the vet. Naturally, horses in different stages of life have different nutritional needs. Age, type, weight, climate and exercise all factor into the quality and make up of their feed and supplementation. Fulvic Health Pty Ltd has developed 2 different blends to cater for these needs but ultimately, both blends are made up of Fulvic and Humic Acid.

The main reason for the increasing attention devoted to humic acids can be explain by their antiviral, profibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and estrogenic activities (Yamada et al. 1998). The potential of humic substances to form chelate complexes with heavy metals (such as cadmium) enable them to be used for the elimination of heavy metals from living organisms (Klöcking 1992).

Antibacterial (Ansorg 1978, Skliar et al. 1998) and antiviral (Klöcking and Sprossig 1972, Thiel etal. 1977 1981, Schiller et al. 1979, Klicking 1991,Klöcking et al. 2002) properties of humic substances represent new possibilities for their medical application.

Many medical studies show that humic substances, especially fulvic acids, have the power to protect against cancer and related cancer-causing viruses. Studies often show reversal of deadly cancers and tumours using special humic substance therapies (Schneideret al. 1996, van Rensburg et al. 2002, Joone et al.2003).

The structure of Fulvic Acid forms strong complexes with minerals and vitamins from feed increasing their solubility and bio-availability. The physiological function that the minerals in Fulvic enhanced products assist wit is the acid-base balance and enzyme function.

“Now it is time for new applications of humic substances in less traditional arenas, mainly in biomedicine (Laub 1999, Laub 2003, Laub Ghosal, 2003).”

Although the possible biomedical benefits of humic acids are just becoming clear to specialists, they display the following clear benefits:

  • Improvement in feed conversion and subsequent nitrogen retention to help build muscle
  • Aid in the removal of toxins (such as bad bacteria, parasites and heavy metals) from the body
  • Reduction of gastric irritation and ammonia in stools (less fly irritation)
  • Improvement of gut health
  • Decrease inflammation and pain in joints and muscle during and after severe exercise
  • Aid in recovery from injury or sickness
  • Improved growth performance and muscle strength
  • Stimulate the immune system
  • Help reduce respiratory disease
  • Help reduce bacterial and viral infections
  • Bone and tissue and tendon recovery
  • Provides organic chelated minerals including Oxygen, Hydrogen, Nitrogen and Carbon for tissue health

 

 

We would like to take this opportunity in providing you with important information before you decide on what your yard may need:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ration Evaluation

The first step to determine if a horse is receiving an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals is to evaluate the horse’s overall diet.  It is best you consult with your vet on specific issues for your horse needs.

An equine nutritionist would usually evaluate the horse’s daily feeding program and based on science based calculations, determine if the horse is being fed a balanced diet.  This can take time and may cost you.

Fulvic Acid is an efficient transporter of vitamins into a cell, it complexes vitamins into its structure where they are presented to the cell in combination with complexed minerals and then utilized immediately. In the absence of organic or naturally chelated trace minerals bonded to a carbon molecule (such as Fulvic), vitamins are unable to perform their proper function.

Reference: Catalyst to Vitamins Dr Roger Williams Bio-Communications Press Wichita Kansas

Our trace minerals are those required in very small amounts by the animal in contrast to macro-minerals which are required in larger amounts. The need for additional minerals in rations formulated for exercising horses is largely related to the increased mineral loss through sweat. Sweat contains appreciable amounts of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium. Fulvic Enhanced™ has undergone specific analysis study to show that these mineral elements are found in our product.

As such, recommendations call for increases in these minerals for horses in environments or exercise conditions however you should begin supplementing with one 50ml scoop per day and only increase dosage to 2 scoops per day after monitoring the effect on one scoop. It has been seen that while supplementing with our product, the system becomes alkalised through mineral intake even resulting in the possibility of a decreased feed conversation ratio, proving that your horse is now getting what it needs!

 

Excel with Fulvic is available in 990g, 2kg, 5kg an now in 15kg tubs for your convenience.

Dose Rates:

  • Horses up to 300 kg:   25 ml daily (half a scoop which is provided in the container )
  • Horses / Ponies over 300kg :  50ml daily ( a full scoop which is provided for in the container)

 

May safely double these doses for recovering from sickness / stress or to increase performance from a week before an event:

  • Pre-race / performance booster: 50ml night before
  • Post gallop / recovery dose: 50ml after cooled down

The feed additive is best given, mixed into dry feed, at least four hours before activity to allow for maximum absorption and distribution via the blood system.

The only time it is recommended to restrict water intake is immediately prior to exercise and during immediate recovery from exercise when heart and respiration rates are elevated. At these times small amounts of water given frequently will guard against dehydration without increasing the potential for digestive upset. Insuring adequate water intake rather than water restriction should be more of a concern, especially in hot, humid environments or prolonged bouts of exercise. Please ensure non chlorinated water is given to your horses. This product is palatable to all horses.

The product does not contain any ingredients that are responsible for sedating an animal. The product has been tested and analysed by the SA Race Horse Association and proven to be safe.

 

Conclusion

Over-supplementing vitamins and minerals is costly, and in some cases can be toxic to a horse. The best practice is to consult with your veterinarian or equine nutritionist before you begin supplementing. As some vitamin and mineral supplements can be counterproductive to certain health problems we recommend that you do not duplicate with other supplements.

Each mineral in the body has an effect on all the other minerals. The balance of minerals is as important a consideration in health as their availability and assimilation. Minerals can compete with one another for absorption, especially if too much of one is available and not enough of others.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 Why do we add digestive enzymes on both our blends?
Digestive enzymes are complex proteins involved in digestion that stimulate chemical changes in other substances. Digestive enzymes help break down these complex sugars into simple sugars that are more easily digestible. Nutrition in animals relies on digestive enzymes. Different enzymes have different functions. Therefore you get the benefit of a product that has plant-derived enzymes as in Fulvic and Humic Acid, as well as Bromelain which is a mixture of sulfur-containing protein-digesting enzymes, called proteolytic enzymes or proteases, and lastly, Papain which hydrolyzes proteins to form oligopeptides and amino acids and protein digesting properties. Digestive enzymes purpose is to break down components of food so that they can be taken up by the organism. Enzymes are necessary within biological cells because most chemical reactions required by the cell would occur too slowly to sustain life. Enzymes are essential to living organisms.

 

What other functional enzyme compound does Fulvic Acid offer?
Superoxide dismutases help protect many types of cells from the free radical damage that is important in aging, senescence, and ischemic tissue damage. Noted in pharmacological studies is that Fulvic and humic substances are powerful superoxide dismutases (SODs) and metalloenymes of every conceivable kind. References: Visser, S.A; Effects of humic substances on higher animals and man; the possible use of humic compounds in medical treatments; 1988; which was presented at the International Humic Substances Society meeting in Sevilla, Spain.
Superoxide dismutases (SOD) is a metal-containing antioxidant, so does this make Fulvic and Antioxidant?
Humic extracts (Fulvic acids) are nature’s most powerful antioxidants throughout the world have shown that various mechanisms within the humic molecular structure make it both a donor and acceptor free radical scavenger and antioxidant. References: Yuan, Shenyuan; et al; Application of Fulvic acid and its derivatives in the fields of agriculture and medicine; First Edition: June 1993 and Inglot, AD; Zielinksa-Jenczylik, J; Piasecki, E; Arch. Immunol. Ther. Exp. (Warsz) 1993, 41(1), 73-80)

It is often believed that your horse may not need supplementation. Is this a wise decision?

Yearlings and 2-year-olds need protein for maintenance and growth of muscle tissue. Exercise may increase the rate of muscle deposition, thus increasing the protein demand in young, exercising horses 10 to 20 percent above amounts needed for maintenance and normal growth. Proteins are large compounds made of individual amino acids. Several of the amino acids necessary for muscle deposition cannot be synthesized by the horse’s body, and they must be supplied by the diet. As such, the balance of these amino acids or protein quality is an important consideration for exercising horse diets. Fulvic and Humic acids provide essential organic minerals such as selenium, copper, zinc, iron and substances, within the safety limits as prescribed by the Medicines Control Council, that provide ideal bone muscle cartilage hoof and hair growth as well as essential Amino Acids and Enzymes. Don’t overlook our start-up maintenance blend (Renew with Fulvic) which provides excellent growth stimulating effects. Fulvic acids become individually unique molecules or multi-mineral compounds that plants, and animals, absorb, assimilate and utilize to support growth and health. Reference: Recent research shows that humic acid can be used as animal feed thanks to its growth-promoting effect (e.g. Kocabagli et al. 2002).

 

Can a horse over supplement on minerals?

Cells have the ability to accept or reject minerals, including aluminum, lead, arsenic, mercury, etc., at their discretion when presented as organic fulvic acid complexes. It should be considered that these minerals may not necessarily be present to “nourish” cells, but are needed to act as “electrodes” in the fulvic electrolyte solution. In that capacity they are probably most essential for bio-reactions, electron transfer, catalytic reactions and transmutations. Fulvic acid carries complexed minerals in “trace” amounts only, and should not be confused with metallic minerals.

 

Can the product change in colour and does it smell?

Complexed into the Fulvic, nucleic and amino acid team are innumerable and essential minerals and rare earth elements. They are amorphous high molecular weight substances. They are not manufactured and they are natural compounds-micro and macronutrients from plants, phytochemicals. They are concentrated and transformed and are rock like, inert or fossilized. From yellow to brown to dark coloured they remain truly organic. They also contain silica as a part of their excipients. The flavonoid structure comes entirely from microbial action on ancient plant deposits. They contain sodium, ammonium or potassium humates and are highly hygroscopic. They will therefore never have the same colour. The uroeza of ammonium chloride, which assists with increased elimination of toxins and to prevent kidney stones or bladder stones (listed in the veterinary drug handbook as favourable), may give the product a slight smell upon opening the container.

  

Explain Fulvic Acid and Iron Toxicity

Environmental pollution raise our requirements for minerals, especially zinc, calcium, and iron. However essential trace elements are “essential” only when used in trace amounts. When used in excess they become toxic. The same is true with “major” elements such as iron. As an electrolyte, Fulvic Acid increases the permeability of cell membranes. Excesses of certain minerals can interfere with absorption of other minerals. It is obvious that when metals, minerals and trace elements become complexed into fulvic acid, they take on an entirely new property of availability, unlike their original form. It is when fulvic acid is not present that one should seriously worry about toxic build-up from any source.  The amounts of minerals and trace elements used in this product are considered safe, for which estimated safe and adequate daily dietary intakes and recommended dietary allowances are available. A cumulative body of evidence points to the safety of each ingredient in the standardised Fulvic Enhanced ™ based multi-mineral powder concentrate for its use as a dietary supplement by horses.

 

How does Fulvic act as a Nutrient Enhancer?

Scientists have found that Fulvic Acid makes nutrients more available from the food/feed ingested and thus corrects deficiencies quickly and safely. Fulvic acts as a vehicle that carries nutrient. When minerals ad trace elements from feed sources come into contact with Fulvic Acid, they are dissolved into a form that makes them more active and available to the body by acting as a catalyst. A catalyst is a compound that facilitates a chemical reaction. Fulvic is often referred to as “nature’s miracle molecule”.

 

How does Fulvic act in Cellular Nutrition?

Each cell when properly nourished is capable of producing their own amino acids, enzymes and other factors necessary for all metabolic processes. Each cell maintains itself, burns its own energy, creates its own proteins, manufactures its own enzymes and duplicates itself. It is therefore important to understand that the total metabolism of the body is the sum total of metabolic operations which is carried on in each individual cell. The nutritional building blocks of these cells may then be considered as maintenance nutrients. These maintenance nutrients must be supplied to the body continually; they are amino acids, major and trace minerals, vitamins and other nutritional factors. The human body can only produce 8 of the amino acids in their body and only one vitamin. It should be noted that vitamins cannot complete their function in the cells metabolism without the presence of certain minerals. This is where Fulvic Acid makes the difference as it chelated and binds scores of minerals into bio-available form to be used by the cells, it also is known as an efficient transporter of vitamins into the cell.

 

Explain the relationship with Enzymes and Cell Health?

The Fulvic Acid Molecule often contains within it structure coenzymes and important factors which the cells utilize in stimulation the manufacturing of enzyme development. (Reference: Williams Dr Roger J 1977)

 

Fulvic increase oxygenation and energy production, why is this important?

Oxygenating the cell is vital because it enhances energy production.

 

What minerals are always present in Fulvic and Humic acids?

Fulvic Acid usually carries 70 or more minerals and trace elements as part of its molecular complexes.

Minerals are essential component in correct nutrition, particularly for young growing horses as a lack Fulvic Acids and Humic Acids shows that the major elements in their composition are Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen, and Sulfur. (Gajdo-ová et al. 2001, Tan 2003, Kurková et al. 2004).

  • The properties of carbon make it the backbone of organic molecules
  • Hydrogen has the potential as a novel antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects
  • Oxygen allows cellular respiration and muscle energy
  • Nitrogen to prevent losing lean tissue after illness. Amino acids, which contain both nitrogen and sulphur which is needed for the repair of muscle tissue.
  • Sulphur is a macro mineral and is an essential constituent of amino acids and is readily absorbed as this form is organic.

The Fulvic Enhanced ™ ingredient is bonded to a calcium molecule which supply a chelated form of calcium with improved absorption.

 

Does our product contain Hyaluronic Acid and if not is there a reason?

Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan. With continued use, Fulvic Enhanced™ products are able to aid the natural manufacture process of glycosaminoglycan to firm cartilage tissue. As published in WebMed “There isn’t enough information about hyaluronic acid to know if it is safe when taken by mouth” . Under joint health information by Ray Sahelian, M.D.: “Whether ingested as a pill it is able to easily enter joint tissue is not fully understood at this time. As to the injectable form, the results are mixed. At this time I don’t have a strong opinion on the benefit of oral form of hyaluronic acid since I have not come across many studies evaluating its effectiveness for joints.”

 

How is Fulvic Enhanced been shown to increase tendon, bone and muscle strength?

With the unique addition of Fulvic and Humic Acid the components relieve swelling from joint inflammation and have been shown to bond to the collagen fibres to aid in repair of damaged tendons and bone.

 

How can Fulvic improve intestinal health of a horse?

Humates ( Fulvic and Humic Acid) recognised digestive aid that promotes a healthy gut microflora in domestic animals as it stimulates microbial activity, enabling the gut to digest food more efficiently and resulting in less loss of nutrients through faeces, with the added benefit of less ammonia and other odour causing elements in manure. Poor quality foods and grasses burden digestion. Digestively, Fulvic acids can chelate heavy metal build-up which results in fewer burdens on your horse’s intestinal tract. Animal studies also reveal an increase in feed efficiency when Humates are included. Excel with Fulvic has been shown to substantially reduce the incidence of diarrhea and other digestive upsets as well as to improve animals’ defenses against pathogens such as E. Coli. (Studies on the antimicrobial effect of natural and synthetic humic acids. Ansorg R. 1978.) Fulvic is an acid created in extremely small amounts by the adequate action of millions of beneficial microbes, working on decaying plant matter. It is biologically very active. Because of its low molecular weight, it has the necessity and ability to readily bond minerals and other elements in its presence into its molecular structure causing them to dissolve and become mobilized fulvic complexes.

 

How does our product enhance the Connective Tissue in horse health?

The good news is that the Fulvic Acid in our “powder form” exists as an active substance in both basic or “alkaline” and “acidic” conditions, thus these Fulvic Acids carry molecules into the tissues to alkalise the tissues.  Minerals such as copper, manganese and zinc found in Fulvic Acid are important for normal cartilage and connective tissue formation and even further supported by the MSM(Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) and Chondroitin Sulphate Bovine content. Fulvic already has the maximum amount of vegetable silica as a part of its exipients bonded to be absorbed quicker by the body. The transmutation of vegetal silica and magnesium to form calcium in animal and human bones is a typical example of new synthesis of minerals that Fulvic initiates.

 

How can the biological effects of humic substances be different and why is this important when comparing Fulvic products?

Humic substances of medicinal importance are found abundantly in peat, sapropel, and other humified sources Ref:  Laub, R. J. Process for preparing synthetic soil-extract materials and medicaments based thereon. U.S. Patent  5,945,446, 999. The biological effects of humic substances can be different, depending on their chemical structure and physicochemical properties and the quinone functional group of Fulvic acid. Chemical composition, structure, and functional groups can vary greatly, depending on the origin and age of the humic substance and the conditions of the humification process (humidity, aeration, temperature, mineral microenvironment, etc. Ref :  Chen, J.; Gu, B.; LeBoeuf, E. J.; Pan, H.; Dai, S. Spectroscopic characterization of the structural and functional properties of natural organic matter fractions. Chemosphere 2002, 48, 59-68. Fulvic Health Pty Ltd  have a scientific report as issued by California Pharmaceuticals identifying  over 690 identified excipient carbon atom bonds present in our product, as opposed to some locally tested products that only contain 9 and 35 respectively.

 

What are the key factors that make our animal feed additive unique?

The product contains Fulvic and Humic substances which act as growth promoters, immune and stress- protectors and metabolism correctors.( References: 1. Stepchenko L. 2000. 11-th International Peat Congress, Quebec, Canada, pp. 921-927. 2. Stepchenko L. 2004. Naukoviy visnik NAU 78, 68-72.)  The humic substances show Antiulcerogenic activity (Ref: Ghosal, S.; Singh, S. K.; Kumar, Y. Phytother. Res. 1988, 2, 187-191) and lastly the use of humuic substances in feed improved gut health for better nutrient utilization as well as improved the health status by working against pathogens by developing immunity( Reference: Pakistan Journal of Nutrition 4 (3): 126-134, 2005 ISSN 1680-5194 © Asian Network for Scientific Information, 2005)

 

How is absorption improved?

Minerals need to be chelated, bound to a protein molecule, to be bio-available. (Mineral assimilation without chelation is only about 10%.) This makes our product highly assimilative. When our humates (fulvic and humic acid dry mixes) are exposed in the system the sulfide, sulfur compounds, hydrogen, carboxylic acids, amines reacts with moisture, hydrolyzes. These are then in ideal natural form to be absorbed and interact with living cells.

 

Is there chloride present in the product and how can this be beneficial for animals?

The chloride (CI) present is a macro-mineral commonly referred to as an “electrolyte” because it helps to maintain the body’s acid/base balance and hydration status. It is also known as “salt” when combined with its partner Sodium. Chloride is an essential component of two intestinal secretions necessary for digestion and absorption of nutrients namely bile and hydrochloric acid (HCI), better known as “ stomach acid”.

 

Why is our product not supplied in a liquid form?

Fulvic may come as a water soluble substance either in liquid form or in the form of sodium, potassium or ammonium or carbohydrate humates as “salt derivatives”. The biological effects of humic substances can be different, depending on their chemical structure and physicochemical properties and the quinone functional group of Fulvic acid. Chemical composition, structure, and functional groups can vary greatly, depending on the origin and age of the humic substance and the conditions of the humification process (humidity, aeration, temperature, mineral microenvironment.  Our product has over 690 identified carbon atom bonds present is the salt derivate powder form making it highly effective of which may be lost in a liquid form as a liquid form of Fulvic and Humic substances are not easily “stabilised” in a liquid form.

 

Are Fulvic and Humic “acids” actually acids?

Minerals with a negative electrical charge are attracted to the H+ ion. These are called acid minerals. Acid minerals include: chlorine (Cl-), sulfur (S-), phosphorus (P-), and they form hydrochloric acid (HCl), sulfuric acid (H2SO4), and phosphoric acid (H3PO4). Minerals with a positive electrical charge are attracted to the negatively charged OH- ion. These are called alkaline minerals. Nutritionally important alkaline minerals include calcium (Ca+), potassium (K+), magnesium (Mg+), and sodium (Na+). To determine if a food is acid or alkaline, it is burned and the ash is mixed with water. If the solution is acid or alkaline then the food is called acid or alkaline. Ash is the mineral content of the food.

 

The product may smell like Ammonium Chloride when opened, why is this?

Uroeze is another name for Ammonium Chloride and is used commonly in animal feeds. This medication is used to prevent the formation of certain kinds of kidney and bladder stones. Ammonium chloride makes the urine more acidic and prevents formation of these stones.  Ammonium chloride can also be used to increase the elimination of certain kinds of toxins or drugs from the body through the urine. It may also be used in combination with certain antibiotic medications to increase the effect of the antibiotic against certain bacteria in the urine.

What tests have been done on horses?

A review of the Equine testing indicates a lack of side effects from the ingestion of Fulvic Enhanced ™  . Dr SS De Kock Laboratory Director of the National Horse Racing Authority conducted a full analysis on blood and urine and indicated in the analysis that the specimens contained no substances which exceed allowed levels and also did not contain any other substances considered prohibited. An additional  review done over a period of 2 years on sponsored product provided by Fulvic Health Pty Ltd confirmed the safety of this product for use as an oral multi-mineral electrolyte supplement. The safety in both the short-term and long-term use of the animals I treated is considered adequate and applicable to horses from colt/filly to mare/gelding/stallion, as is implied the same mechanism of action that is seen to occur in both animal and human studies. The substance tested complied with Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) methods, was received in a tamper proof secure container. In a preliminary test, the dosage was given a suggested dosage. The oral acute toxicity study testing done over a period of 2 years shows no toxicity. All animals tested were continuously observed for six hours initially after the treatment and then three times a day during the post treatment. Results of the testing indicate that Fulvic Enhanced ™ caused no toxic symptom or lethality during a the treatment observation period at the maximal tolerable dose (MTD) administered within 24 hours which was 50 ml per day and often up to 2 x 50 ml dose per day during endurance activity, thus providing a base of evidence that this product is non-toxic in applicable physiological doses.
