Trialing health products are what I could describe as being a hobby. Studying Nutrition and Naturopathy has opened me up to a world of information that I feel privileged to know, and also a responsibility to educate others on - I am lucky to do so through Julia & Libby. Libby and I get the chance to try lots of products and when NZfulvic turned up on my doorstep and I read it could help with the gut, I knew I had to try. Having battled with leaky gut a few times it is always in the back of my mind to consume nutrients that help with gut health.

So what is fulvic?  

Fulvic is extracted from nutrient rich soil in the South Island of New Zealand. Our soils used to be rich in fulvic acid but over time it has been stripped due to over farming and pollution. As a result, we are not getting the nutrients we need from the plants we eat. Scary huh?  When fulvic acid is present in soil, the plants absorb nutrients and minerals optimally. Fulvic acid is full of nutrients including trace minerals, electrolytes, silica and pre and pro biotic.

It is also a nutrient booster that helps to improve gut health, energy levels, nutrient absorption, detoxification, and lower free radical damage and inflammation. When we take this as a supplement, it helps to boost the good bacteria in the gut, which has many health benefits.

The health of our gut is directly linked to the health of the whole body. The health of your gut determines what nutrients are absorbed and what toxins, allergens, and microbes are kept out. There are bugs in your gut that form a diverse and interdependent ecosystem, like a rainforest. In fact, there are 500 species and 3 pounds of bacteria in your gut which form a chemical factory that help you digest your food, regulate hormones, excrete toxins, and produce vitamins and other healing compounds that keep your gut and your body healthy.

This ecosystem of friendly bacteria must be in balance for you to be healthy.  Too many of the wrong bacteria, like parasites and yeasts, or not enough of the good ones, can seriously damage your health. So keeping a healthy balance of bugs in your intestines is one factor to good gut health, which is why a product that contains both pre and probiotics is so important for our health.

When fulvic acid is taken regularly some are able to notice an improvement in their health, mental well-being and performance in as little as 3 weeks due to the improvement it makes on the gut. Other benefits people notice are healthier hair, skin and nails, increased energy and metabolism leading to weight loss and an improvement in memory and focus.

What are my thoughts on fulvic?

I liken the taste to diluted apple cider vinegar.  Easy to take on it’s own, it’s quite tart and after a few daily doses I was used to the taste. I found it easy to incorporate into my daily routine as when I drank my lemon water in the morning or made a smoothie I would take fulvic at the same time. Many athletes take fulvic acid to increase energy levels and shorten recovery time.

My partner is an athlete so I started him on fulvic when I started.  As he doesn't take many supplements to help with the gut he noticed a difference in a short space of time. Little to no bloating after meals and clearer skin.

When it comes to gut health it cannot hurt trying products to see if they work for you. Remember we are all so different and what works for someone may not work for you and vice versa.  I would recommend fulvic to everyone, especially those who do have gut issues.
