THE RAW MATERIALS BASIC FORMULA – HUMIC AND SUPER CONCENTRATED FULVIC FORMULA
- Humic and Fulvic naturally carry a baseline of up to 74+ minerals, including all the trace minerals and elements. They also transport vitamins, amino acids, and phytonutrients.
- Humic and Fulvic increase nutrient absorption and delivery of nutrients to the cell. They also provide electrons to charge cell membranes and help restore cellular energetics and membrane dynamics – nutrients flow in and wastes flow out.
- Humic is especially beneficial in the GI tract and for digestive health. It supports health microbial flora and fauna, balanced fluid and electrolyte in the body, bowel function, and more.
- Practitioners often use Dr. Tennant's Raw Materials to help jumpstart cells' natural detox functions, especially for chronically ill patients. It is used to enhance individual protocols and improve absorption and utility of nutrients.
WHAT ARE HUMIC AND FULVIC?
The way things are supposed to work is that when plant material dies, it is broken down into its component parts by fungi and bacteria.
For example, when dead leaves fall from trees in the forest, they are transformed from their cells to the component parts. Part of this is a collection of complex organic molecules called Humic acids. Fulvic acid is part of the Humic group and includes the molecules comprising the smallest band of molecular sizes. Fulvic acids are also the most biologically active, and reach deep tissue. All the Humic acids, including Fulvic acid, are important and beneficial.
Fulvic acids can be isolated from the other Humic acids. There are different methods to do this. We use techniques that involve only pure water, rather than harsh chemicals. Once isolated form the other Humic acids, a Fulvic acid solution is yellow to deep golden in color depending on its concentration. Humic acids together are a rich, deep brownish-black. Based on appearances alone, you would expect a Humic solution to taste very strong. On the contrary, when pure water is used, it has only a very mild taste.
IN NATURE - and on farms that produce our food - Humic and Fulvic are naturally produced in healthy soils by beneficial microbes as organic material is broken down
Humic and Fulvic start their journey in the soil that will take them throughout the biosphere to support life everywhere they go – to plants, to animals, to human beings. In the soil, Humic and Fulvic’s first task is to transform inorganic mineral rocks and mineral metals into their activated, ionic (water-soluble), “cell-ready” forms...the only mineral form plants can use...and the only form we can use, too. Humic and Fulvic transport these minerals out of the soil into the plant...to the plant cells where they are needed in just about every metabolic “life-giving and sustaining” process.
Humic and Fulvic are “Nature’s Own” nutrient transformation and transportation system.
Humic and Fulvic make it possible for plants to receive the nutrition, especially minerals, needed to be healthy and thrive...and to carry out a host of vital, life-giving functions.
We rely on these microorganisms and the Humic and Fulvic they produce – just as much as plants – to be healthy and thrive also. When we consume plants, Humic and Fulvic carry nutrients to our cells too. And because Fulvic nutrients are in their ionic “cell-ready” natural forms, our bodies have no difficulties using them immediately.
Our bodies are used to receiving these nutrients in this way. We need Humic and Fulvic along with the minerals, vitamins, amino acids, phytonutrients, and other vital nutrients they naturally carry as much as plants to be healthy and thrive!
Our U.S. crop plants contain only a fraction – as much as 80% less – of the Humic substances, especially Fulvic, along with the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytochemicals, and other nutrients Humic and Fulvic naturally carry compared to a century ago (according to a U.S. Senate Report provided by the USDA – U.S. Department of Agriculture).
WHY IS THIS SO?
Fertilizers and pesticides used in modern agricultural practices destroy or severely stunt the microorganisms in the soil that produce Humic and Fulvic.
When Humic and Fulvic acids are not in the soils, “cell-ready” minerals are not made available to the plant, and subsequently are not in our food sources. This includes all food sources: fruits and vegetables, as well as dairy and meats.
Even organic farming methods that protect the microorganisms deplete the Humic and Fulvic because they are used by plants faster than they can be replaced naturally.
Some organic farmers, especially large growers, are now supplementing soils with Organic Agricultural Humic Compounds as part of a sustainable agricultural program.
So, despite even the best efforts to eat a balanced diet, our food sources no longer contain the vitamins, Fulvic minerals, and nutrients our bodies need to stay healthy and strong.
WHERE DO THE BEST RAW MATERIALS COME FROM THAT MAKE THE BEST HUMIC AND FULVIC SUPPLEMENTS?
Concentrated Raw Humate Material used to make Humic and Fulvic can be found all over the world. However, not very many sources are suitable to use to make Humic and Fulvic supplements. Raw Humate deposits were formed from prehistoric plant material – primarily from the Cretaceous period – that have been compacted over time.
In the area that is the northwest corner of New Mexico today, conditions were ideal in the Cretaceous Period to produce some of the highest quality Humate Mineral Ore in the world. This area is now called The Fruitland Formation. There are millions of acres in this pristine area, which is far from civilization and pollution. Humate Mineral Ore from specific areas of the Fruitland Formation carry a very high Fulvic concentration and a desirable mineral profile essential to support optimum human health applications. Our tract of raw materials is derived from one of these areas. It meets exacting benchmarks that define a superior quality raw material, such as Fulvic content, a desirable mineral and element profile, and absence of heavy metals that may be an issue in raw humates form other areas of the U.S.
Finally, while our Humates already carry a high concentration of Fulvic, we blend in Super Concentrated Fulvic to increase the Fulvic acid concentration to achieve a 70:30 ratio of Fulvic to Humic that is in RAW MATERIALS BASIC FORMULA – an ideal ratio for human health applications. Most Humic ratios are a 10:90 ratio of Fulvic to Humic. These solutions contain very little Fulvic.
WHAT DOES HUMIC DO?
Humic also has many of the same cleansing and detoxification properties as Fulvic. However, the largest Humic molecules do not easily pass outside the intestine wall, which enables them to naturally provide important intestinal and colon support. Humic, and to a lesser extent Fulvic, works in our intestines and colon to provide nutritional and digestive therapy.
Humic naturally carries the vitamins and minerals, especially trace minerals, our bodies need that are missing in our food sources and helps to prevent the need to absorb vitamins and minerals from impacted fecal material. Unfortunately, this applies to those people with an acidic pH, and of course this would be many Americans.
Humic helps maintain the fluid and electrolyte mineral balance of our bodies and reduces the need to absorb vitamins and minerals and all the toxins that comes with them from fecal material in the colon.
Humic also provides intestinal cells with much needed nutrients and helps to support a beneficial environment so cells can function at their best. Most important, it provides the building blocks for the production of digestive enzymes. Without an adequate amount of digestive enzymes, food is not digested properly and can become impacted and then putrefy. Bacteria, yeast, and fungus thrive in this environment and themselves secrete toxins. All of these toxins from putrefied food and microbial secretions are absorbed back into the body as the body tries to absorb missing vitamins and minerals, as well as water when we are not properly hydrated.
Humic also provides much needed fiber that is missing in most diets. Humic is among the best fiber supplements you can take.
Additionally, Humic supports a healthy microbial balance by supporting more of the “good bacteria” with plant-based nutrition.
It can help to eliminate candida, viruses, and other types of microbes from the intestinal tract.
Important Note: When starting a supplement containing concentrated Humic, it is important to do so slowly. Humic is a powerful detoxifier and intestinal detoxification symptoms are common if started too quickly. Most practitioners are aware of this and will advise you to start slowly. One teaspoon a day, depending on your situation, is generally advised for a week, then working up by adding a teaspoon a week until you reach an ounce providing you don’t experience detox symptoms. These can include diarrhea and nausea.
Our Humic and Fulvic Products exceed the benchmarks that define a superior quality Humic and Fulvic Nutritional Health Product.
One of these benchmarks that define a superior quality Humic and Fulvic Product is a product that is highly energetic, electron-rich, and oxygenated, all essential to support cellular energetics
Every batch of RAW MATERIALS BASIC FORMULA is tested to ensure a high pH and ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential), which are hallmarks of a highly energetic, oxygenated, and electron-rich product.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Fulvic and Humic in RAW MATERIALS BASIC FORMULA are often called “The Spark of Life.” Our bodies work on supplied energy. Not only do our bodies require nutrients to make energy (Humic and Fulvic deliver these)...
...they also require voltage at the cellular level – or electrons – in order to fuel biochemical processes that support life (Humic and Fulvic also donate these).
Humic and Fulvic act like mini-batteries supplying electrons to our cell. Cell membranes need an electrical potential (charge difference between the inside and outside of the cell) to maintain membrane, thus cellular, integrity.
Fulvic and Humic are “mini-batteries” supplying electrons to the cells
Cell membranes need a charge difference between the inside and outside of the cell
A cell membrane electrical potential also ensures nutrients get inside the cell where they must go to participate in most of the biochemical processes that support life. And wastes products naturally produced in these processes are eliminated from the cell easily and do not build up.

Charges donated to the cell are also used in the cell’s mitochondria (cell powerhouse) for energy production.
The cell’s mitochondria is its Powerhouse. Electrons are needed for energy production
Humic and Fulvic are potent anti-oxidants donating charges that neutralize damaging free radicals on contact.
When our bodies are in a state of Chronic Acidity and Inflammation, our cells are bombarded by free radicals. Humic and Fulvic ferociously neutralize free radicals on contact!
ORP – Oxidation Reduction Potential
ORP is the measure of a substance's ability to donate electrons and carry oxygen to support cellular processes and neutralize free radicals.
Fulvic and Humic are highly energetic molecules and powerful antioxidants.
The ORP of the Humic and Fulvic in RAW MATERIALS BASIC FORMULA is over -170 mV. Electrons carry a negative charge so a substance that carries electrons will have a negative ORP. The greater the negative number, the more electrons and charge a substance carries.
Over a -170mV is exceptionally powerful!
The ORP tests over -170 mV (milliVolts), denoting very strong antioxidant activity and ability to donate electrons. (ORP is Oxidation Reduction Potential, a measure of an antioxidant’s potential to supply electrons dispersed into a liquid. Antioxidants are negative, oxidants are positive). A -170 mV reading surpasses even the highest ORP of well-known food sources of flavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants, such as blueberries and cranberries, or alkalizing foods, such as kale and spinach.
FULVIC AND HUMIC HELP RESTORE AND MAINTAIN CELLULAR ENERGY BY
DONATING ELECTRONS TO CHARGE THE MITOCHONDRIA – THE CELL’S POWERHOUSE.
Humic and Fulvic and the other plant-derived substances in RAW MATERIALS BASIC FORMULA may support increased levels of CoQ10 in the mitochondria. *1
Fulvic has been suggested to help restore and sustain cellular energy.* Studies surmise that when Fulvic is combined with CoQ10, cellular energy gains may substantially increase.* In a preliminary study,the combination of CoQ10 and Fulvic produced a 56% increase in cellular energy production in the brain, 40% better than CoQ10 alone.*
Researchers have suggested that Fulvic works to boost CoQ10's beneficial effects by:
Stabilizing CoQ10 in its powerful ubiquinol (reduced, electron-rich) form, thereby prolonging its action at the cellular level.* 3,4
Facilitating more efficient delivery of CoQ10 into the mitochondria, supporting greater cellular energy output.* 5
Scientific analysis suggests that Humic and Fulvic and other plant-derived essential substances promote mitochondrial metabolism.*
Fulvic acids protect mitochondria against oxidative damage and reduce dangerous lipid peroxidation.* 6
Part of Fulvic’s beneficial effects derives from its ability to help the mitochondria convert fats and sugars into adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, the body's main source of energy.* 5
Fulvic acids also work as “electron shuttles,” augmenting CoQ10 to speed and facilitate essential electron flow in mitochondria.* 7-10
