Raw Materials® and Recovery: The Role of Humic and Fulvic Acids

Raw Materials® and Recovery: The Role of Humic and Fulvic Acids

Imagine biting into a juicy apple. You can taste this perfect, sweet fruit, and its wonderful potent aroma fills your senses like fresh cider on a summer’s eve.

Now imagine yourself biting into another apple. This apple looks plump and full of great color, but as you take a big bite, you feel a level of disappointment as the beautiful apple just does not deliver the flavor you expected. You also notice that there is none of that delicious apple smell. No flavor. No smell. Strange, right?

I know I’ve had this experience many times over, and I’d much prefer the tastier apple. But why? Why is one apple all you expected and the other a huge disappointment? What is the difference?

Where Does the Taste and Smell of our Food Come From?

Did you know that the smell and taste in our food are associated with things the plant takes from the soil? Think about all the things that are in the ground from Aluminum to Zinc. These are what are called micro and trace nutrients within the food we eat, and they are responsible for making that apple not only taste amazing but smell just as wonderful.

Why Does This Matter?

These micro and trace nutrients are responsible for hundreds of the biochemical processes that must exist not only within the fruit, but also within the body for effective nutrition. Without these nutrients, our food loses its taste and smell, and this also means our bodies are not getting those critical mico and trace nutrients the body needs.

Consider the momentous role these micro and trace nutrients have in our bodies. The lack of nutrients in our food cannot only have a negative impact on our overall health, but can also impact our ability to recover from illness or injury. We believe that...

ALL nutrients for ALL biological processes are required for the fastest recovery.

Dr. Tennant’s® Raw Materials® which contains these micro and trace nutrients, can help speed up recovery by providing these key nutrients as they help carry the damaged or dead cells, and toxins away from the body. Both of these processes are critical for­ recovery.

So Why Is Food Losing Micro and Trace Nutrients?

Food is not losing them, it is just not getting them. Increases in commercial farming and alterations in the crops (bio-engineered or GMO) have led to an increase in overall shelf life, but decreases the overall nutritional value of the food itself. While this may be wonderful for crop quantity, it has a disastrous effect on the nutritional value of our food today. Unfortunately, the nutritional value of the food we eat today isn’t what it used to be. Did you know that one leaf of spinach in 1975 is the same amount of nutrition as ten leaves of spinach in 2018? The decrease in nutrition represents the decrease in micro and trace nutrients and can vary even more, depending upon where you live and how your food is sourced.

How Do I Get These Micro Nutrients if They Are Not In Our Food?

As mentioned above, these micro and trace nutrients are critical for all sorts of functions that occur in our bodies. But we can’t just ingest these as they are not in a form our bodies can use. So just getting a little zinc or iron will not solve the problem. This is where Humic and Fulvic Acid, also known as Raw Materials®, comes to the rescue.

What are Humic and Fulvic Acids?

Humic and Fulvic Acids take inorganic material (think zinc, magnesium, iron, basically the periodic table) and turn these materials into a bioavailable form, or a form that our bodies can use.

In short, Humic and Fulvic Acids take the nutrients our bodies need and turn them into a form our bodies can process and use right away!

These minerals, vitamins, and nutrients not only help the body with specific biological processes, but also help carry energy to the cells.

Humic and Fulvic in Nature

Humic and Fulvic Acid convert inorganic material into organic material that our bodies can use. Plants also need these, which is why Humic and Fulvic Acids are crucial for gardening. Humic and Fulvic transport those nutrients from the soil throughout the plant, so that each plant cell can have what it needs. When we eat the plants that contain these acids and nutrients, we also receive the benefits! The challenge is that when the nutritional value of the soil decreases, so do these nutrients...leaving fewer nutrients for us to consume.

Humic and Fulvic in the Body

We know that Humic and Fulvic Acids are wonderful transporters and can be a great natural way to detox the body, but how do they work in the body?

Let’s look at each specifically:

Fulvic Acid is a smaller molecule, usually 10 to 100 times smaller than Humic Acid, so it can go to each cell in the body, including passing the blood-brain barrier. This means that Fulvic cannot only help with bringing energy to each cell (and vital nutrients) but also help detox the body when it needs a little natural boost.

Humic Acid is a much larger molecule. Though it performs similar tasks in the body, Humic Acid is too large to get through the intestinal wall, making Humic Acid a wonderful agent to help promote digestive health. Humic Acid also acts as fiber in the digestive tract, and helps decrease overall inflammation and tighten endothelial function, which helps reduce Leaky Gut.

Humic and Fulvic are Transporters

Humic and Fulvic have a unique molecular structure that allows each acid to pick up nutrients and carry them throughout the body, helping with ridding the body of the cells or toxins it needs to remove. So, Dr. Tennant’s® Raw Materials® is not only a wonderful electrolyte but also a natural detoxing agent!

Carrying Energy

Most people are looking for more energy. Humic and Fulvic Acid can certainly help here! Both Humic and Fulvic Acid carry a charge (some could say voltage, energy, or pH) right to the cells in the body. This means that those cells can have additional energy to complete their task.

Remember energy is one of the things that new, healthy cells need to thrive!

How Do I Know I Am Getting The Best Humic And Fulvic?

Humic and Fulvic Acids are starting to become more common to help replace those lost nutrients in the food supply today. There are a couple of things to look for when considering a Humic and Fulvic Acid source. Just a few things you should consider when buying a Humic and Fulvic supplement:

    • Where is it sourced?
    • What is the concentration level?
    • How pure is it?

Where is it Sourced?

Most companies offering Humic and Fulvic Acids are not willing to share where they source their Humic and Fulvic. But this is critical when it comes to quality. We here are Tennant Products are very picky about where we source all of our ingredients and Humic and Fulvic are no exception. We’ve spent months confirming the world-class quality of our Humic and Fulvic products. You should ask:
    • Is it pure?
    • Are there additional contaminants?
    • Could there be any heavy metals associated with this source?
Read more about where our Raw Materials® are sourced.

What is the Concentration Level?

Most of the market will test concentration around 3% of Humic and Fulvic Acids. Dr. Tennant’s® Fulvic Super-Concentrate consistently tests between 12-14% concentration.

How Pure is it?

How each acid is processed is a critical piece of information you need to know. Most of the market uses harsh chemical processes to separate the Humic and Fulvic Acids from the surrounding material. This can leave additional metals or harmful residue. Remember Humic and Fulvic are carriers and they carry the good and the bad.

So if there is harmful residue or metals in the product they will be carried to your cells.

Dr. Tennant’s® Raw Materials® uses a water filtration process without harsh chemicals to separate Humic and Fulvic Acids from the surrounding material from one of the purest sources in the USA.
Dr. Tennant’s® Raw Materials® not only contains Humic Acid, and Fulvic Acid, but it also contains Phytoplankton to help round out the micro and trace nutrients that are needed throughout the body.

Important to Note!

Humic and Fulvic Acids are designed to transport nutrients throughout the body. This is a wonderful compliment to a product like Dr. Tennant’s® Restore, so the nutrients can be spread throughout the body even more rapidly.

However, there is a word of CAUTION when consuming Humic and Fulvic Acids with medicine or stimulants. If you consume a cup of coffee with Humic and Fulvic Acid, it may make you feel like you’ve had several cups of coffee. Or if you consume Benadryl® with Humic and Fulvic Acid, it could also give the feeling like you may have consumed more.

Therefore, we recommend that you do not take Humic and Fulvic Acids with medication; please consume at least 30 minutes before or 2 hours after medication for the best experience.

To ensure you’re giving your body the support it needs, the minerals, vitamins, micro, and trace nutrients that are lacking from the soil today,
give Dr. Tennant’s® Raw Materials® a try!




It’s your body. It’s your life. Ingredients matter.
