What Is Fulvic?
Fulvic comes from lactobacillus, yeasts, algae, fungi, and a million other species of living organisms and their juices, excretions, and live seed-like spores. In the process of humification, the beneficial acid promoting bacteria crowd out and consume the harmful bacteria. Within the soluble living fulvic itself, there is never any species that is pathogenic or poison or detrimental to human, animal, or plant health in any way, or to beneficial microbial health. Fulvic promotes life and health. If there is something poison or pathogenic, the beneficial bacteria wall it off, encapsulate it, making it insoluble, unavailable, or they dissolve it, consume it, or transform it, making that dangerous thing no longer bioactive. That’s why fulvic acids are an essential part of nature’s own bio-remediation process. Fulvic has nature’s perfect balance to promote health and life in beneficial bacteria, plants, animals, and humans. Fulvic must be alive, because if it is not, the chemicals it contains have no ability to perform the aforementioned tasks.
Is Fulvic Vegan & Organic?
Yes, fulvic is vegan or totally plant based, and organic when it comes from nature and has not been chemically treated or altered. Actually fulvic is far beyond organic agriculture itself. We wish that organic growers would grow in optimum humus soil and use sufficient humates and humic substances containing and promoting optimum levels of bioactive fulvic. Smart organic farmers build their soil, but no organic organization or USDA rules require them to supplement humic substances that contain and promote optimum fulvic levels. This is the most important part of agriculture, which is entirely overlooked for the most part. Scientists have proven that when the proper levels of humic substances are maintained in soils or grow mediums, the agricultural crops contain live fulvic in all plant tissues, as part of plant cells.
Nature’s Most Powerful Broad Spectrum Antibiotic
Fulvic wears many hats, and performs many jobs. One of these is fulvic’s amazing antibiotic nature. Fulvic is like a weak highly dilute antibiotic soup. It is as if an ounce of fulvic solution has one molecule each of a million antibiotic species, never enough to promote allergy or to build up an antibiotic resistance. Consuming living fulvic in the foods we eat is what nature originally intended for our optimum health. All of the antibiotic substances fulvic contains work together in a miraculous yet very subtle way. Fulvic can be taken as a health supplement and can be consumed by eating living organic fresh raw seeds, nuts, fruits, and vegetables, grown in rich humus soil.
Yes, it is like there is one molecule each of 100 varieties of penicillin and every other antibiotic that has ever been discovered, and a million more that have yet to be discovered. Again, the fulvic is so dilute and so complex that there is never an allergy or resistant infection. Fulvic is a very dilute combination of every soil-based drug that the pharmaceutical companies have ever developed, and millions more they they have yet to discover. Fulvic is nature’s own best medicine.
Read the short referenced medical summaries in the column on the right side of this page. Then go read some of the customer testimonials of various fulvic health supplements. This will give you an idea of the real potential that fulvic has.
More About Living Fulvic
Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? This metaphor actually helps set the stage for the answer. Fulvic is alive in the beginning, throughout its entire cycle, and even at the end. If you bring ancient humic material up from deep deposits in the earth, crush it in a sterile environment, and flood it with purified water, it isn’t long until it is full of living microoranisms. Yes, the living spores of microorganisms that created the fulvic in the first place, have been found in humate and are still viable.
Because ancient deposits are said to be millions of years old, the idea of “living fulvic” goes contrary to what many scientists believe. Yet they are wrong. Dead wrong. In the beginning, fulvic is created by living microbes and consists of living microbes and the substances they exude as a defense. Many microbes are symbiotic, relying on others for their existence. One microbe absorbs another, each time becoming a more complex substance, and this happens a million times over, again, and again. When they are done, they leave their spores. The spores still have life energy. Maybe that ancient humate isn’t as old as they think. Either way, they are wrong.
Throughout this article we will prove fulvic is alive. We will prove it through common sense and logical thinking. Yes, in some types of extraction processes and chemical experiments, fulvic acid can be rendered dead. But that is not real fulvic. That is dead, almost inert, chemical fulvic. The very nature of fulvic is killed by harsh chemical extraction processes that would otherwise kill living organisms. In nature, and with living substances, nature is all that really matters. Science experiments in a sterile laboratory using powerful chemicals or processes are shortcuts, may mimic, but do not really duplicate nature. Nor do these methods matter in the real world of living organisms. Look to nature to learn her ways.
Are Dr. Higa’s EM & Similar EM Products Related To Fulvic?
Dr. Teruo Higa of Japan discovered EM, which stands for Effective Microorganisms. His microbe species are anaerobic, living without oxygen, and because of their acidic nature were beneficial species like lactobacillus that create acids that deter the production of dangerous bacteria like botulism, E.coli, salmonella, etc. Dr. Higa and other scientists have proven that EM can have amazing results on plants, animals, and humans. The results parallel those of fulvic acids, yet fulvic acids are usually far more complex and the results often even more broad and dramatic. EM is fresh living fulvic it its early stage. EM can be a wonderful and miraculous product.
Actually, Dr. Higa discovered exactly what happens when a giant flood, a mudslide, earthquake, or volcano, buries tons of plant matter in the earth, and it decompose without air. This is actually the process of humification, the creation of humus, humic, and fulvic acids. Dr. Higa was just replicating nature on a small scale, similar to the way we make wine, vinegar, kombucha, kimchi, sourdough, bokashi, etc.
I saw the very same effect in Alaska when the yearly 45 feet of snow turned into 15 feet of ice, trapping the abundant lush rainforest vegetation against the now insulated and unfrozen wet earth underneath, for months. Without much air, that vegetation turned into rich black humus that smelled sour as vinegar. Oh. how the wild blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries would grow in that black sour smelling soil each summer. I would grow about 300 pounds of potatoes in a ten foot square garden patch each year. Acid as that soil was, everything grew miraculously in it each summer. I’ve never seen peas grow better anywhere in my life.
Is Fulvic A Chemical?
Fulvic, or fulvic acid is not a simple chemical substance. It is organic in the sense that it has never turned back to an inert substance like coal or rock. Fulvic is the most complex substance on earth, made up of incredibly complex molecules. It readily combines with liquids and substances in liquids. Again, fulvic is an organic substance, meaning it still has life-like characteristics. It contains bio-active enzymes that have an immediate and almost life-like activity, and when in the presence of life, microbe, plant, animal, and man, it instantly merges.
So here is the clincher. Fulvic acid instantly combines with living things of all kinds. They become part of the fulvic, or the fulvic becomes part of them. Meaning, in nature, it instantly combines with microbes and they become a part of it. In fact, in nature, you can’t keep microbes out of it. In nature, the humic materials that fulvic acid comes from are full of microbres, billions of them. Yes, a teaspoon of fulvic acid can readily have billions of microorganisms in it in no time at all. The microbes become part of the fulvic acid. They are part of the fulvic acid and fulvic is part of them. Fulvic acid originally came from them. They identify with it, they created it, and it is part of their realm of life.
Fulvic is almost instantly bio-active and beneficial to microorganisms. This means that millions of species, and billions of living organisms are activated, live and grow in the presence of fulvic acids and become part of it. You really can’t separate the two and still have true fulvic acid.
When treated with the proper water and fulvic acid seed soak solution, why did seeds sprout and turn green even in total darkness? Where was this light energy coming from? When plain water was used in a control group, the seeds remained pale with no hint of green whatsoever. This fulvic acid “photosynthesis in the dark” phenomenon has amazing implications. Latent solar light energy is coming from somewhere deep within the fulvic acid molecule.(1)
Why are more seeds viable when treated with the proper fulvic seed soak? In my studies, some seeds that were old and seemed dead or non-viable in past trials, miraculously seemed to come back to life, sprouted and developed normally when treated with the fulvic seed soak. In fact, fulvic treated seeds have been shown to grow into healthier greener plants and remain so throughout their entire life. Fulvic acid starts a chain reaction or cascading effect which continues throughout the life of plants, particularly when present at the moment of seed germination. Where is this energizing and rejuvenating power coming from?
Just like the fulvic seed soak, ailing humans have experienced remarkable relief when soaking in warm fulvic acid baths. Medical studies in China showed remarkable results with rheumatoid arthritis patients. So there is validity to the amazing action fulvic acid can have on living organisms when the right amount is used. I once developed a bath product for this purpose. Yet there is a problem with fulvic baths, and it relates to the chlorine in most municipal water. Chlorine reacts negatively and even dangerously with fulvic acid, and there cannot be any chlorine present. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise. Furthermore, microbes do not bode well in the presence of chlorine, and microbes are an integral part of fulvic. I will discuss these dangers in a later section below.
Latent Nuclear Fusion
Since fulvic acid is primarily the end product of decomposition of once living plant matter, it contains a high percentage of molecules and DNA fragments from leaves that were once involved in photosynthesis. In other words, nuclear fusion was taking place in cells on leaf surfaces. Furthermore, the source of light energy from the sun is nuclear fusion. The highly concentrated and complex molecules that make up the structure of fulvic acid hold a well hidden and powerful secret that science has yet to unlock. The problem is, modern education and science is trapped within a box, and the answer will take thinking that is outside the box..
Fulvic Seed Soak
What is this miraculous fulvic acid seed soak? It is simply purified water mixed with the right ratio of finely pulverized humate. Water immediately extracts and activates the soluble fulvic acids. Fulvic acid even dramatically changes the molecular structure and activity of the water.
Microorganisms can play a role in this extraction and activation process as well. Beneficial soil-based microorganisms respond very well to a dilute fulvic acid solution like my seed soak. Only a trace of fulvic acid is necessary to achieve good results with plants and all living things, just a few parts per million, depending on the source material. Too little fulvic won’t work, and too much will stunt or kill the seeds, plants, or living organisms.
Proven Humate Sources
The humate that I currently use is called Live Earth, which comes from a mine in Emery County, Utah. It is convenient for me to buy in 50 lb. bags from my local agricultural supply stores, including Steve Regan Company and Intermountain Farmers Association (IFA).
For many years I have used humate from Mesa Verde Resources in New Mexico, with very good results, although you will have to do your own seed and plant trials to find the optimum amount. Mesa Verde Resources provides several different product grades. Many products and suppliers actually buy their base material from these two suppliers.
Humate Water Ratio
Through extensive testing, I have found that three grams of Live Earth humate, finely pulverized with a mortar and pestle, is the perfect amount when mixed with five gallons of purified water. This amount gives me optimum results.
I use my mortar and pestle so that the humate does not get hot like other pulverizing methods can do. This humate is truly organic, alive with delicate enzymes, dormant microbes, and millions of fragile compounds that could be destroyed with heat. Remember, it is pressure and heat that turns the same organic material into inert coal, oil, or natural gas deeper in the earth.
When making my fulvic solution, I mix the humate initially with a tiny bit of water, making a slurry or paste, then add more water slowly until I reach the desired amount. I find that the black/brown humate stays suspended in the water quite well, yet the fulvic portion itself just adds a trace of faint golden color to the water. I measure my humate on an extremely accurate Ohaus Triple Beam Balance scale that will accurately weigh grams and milligrams. Again, I pulverize the humate with a mortar and pestle until it becomes extremely fine powder. I then mix a tiny bit of water into it, making a paste, adding more water and even wash a little of the water over the mortar and pestle getting every last trace of humate.
If I only need a quart of fulvic solution, I weigh out 150 milligrams of humate. For a gallon I weigh out 600 milligrams of humate. Then I either use the fulvic solution immediately, or allow it to sit for a few days or months. One scientist I know even puts it in a sunny window so that it will develop other unique properties and allow microbes to flourish. I highly recommend this step. I use my solution directly as a seed soak, hydroponic base solution, as foliar spray, and also to water the roots of plants throughout their entire lives. For me this is the optimum solution and ratio.
Please be aware that chlorinated water, even just a trace of chlorine, chemically reacts with fulvic acid, making it dangerously carcinogenic and poison to plants, animals, and humans. Chlorine changes and damages the fulvic acid molecule and creates poisons. I know some people that have died mysterious and early deaths from long-term exposure to fulvic extracted with chlorinated water. Do not ever use chlorinated water that has not been purified. In the year 2000 I wrote extensively on the subject in a Health Alert that I published. Prior to that I personally had been accidentally poisoned just by getting some very potent fulvic/chlorine solution on my bare feet from a wet floor while working on a large scale extraction project. Extraction with chlorinated water does not result in fulvic acid, it creates a deadly poison and carcinogen that is not nor no longer is fulvic acid.
Can’t Stand The Light Of Day
Scientists have determined that the appropriate fulvic acid solution can have a selective effect on microorganisms, killing detrimental bacteria and giving life to beneficial bacteria. It has been shown to kill dangerous microorganisms (such as viruses), while enhancing the growth of beneficial soil microorganisms (such as algae). Although this selective process seems outlandish and impossible, it can easily be explained. Fulvic acid contains latent solar light energy, which is released at the molecular and atomic level, so microorganisms that hate sunlight and live in darkness tend to be inhibited or die, while sun-loving microorganisms flourish.
The Dangers Of Chlorine & Fulvic
The municipal water treatment industry has extensive information about the organic substances (humic and fulvic acids) found in municipal water systems, which react with chlorine causing extensive cancers and health problems in certain areas of the world. Interestingly, the organic substances humic and fulvic acids found in natural lakes streams and springs, has usually leached from rich humus soil, and they themselves are not the problem. The chlorine they add is the problem. To prevent water-borne illness in municipal water, authorities chlorinate the water, after first removing as much fulvic acid as they can, which is very difficult. In essence, they are throwing the baby out with the bath water, while actually supporting the huge and powerful chlorine industry. You may find it interesting to note that the banned and dangerous insecticide known as DDT comes from reacting natural organic compounds with chlorine.
For small scale home projects, there are many chlorine filters for drinking water that will attach to your kitchen faucet that do a good job of removing chlorine. To be the safest, I double filter out all chlorine by running the water through a second filter system. I have even used an inexpensive and simple Brita Pitcher Filter as a second filtration method, or even have run the waster through a Brita Pitcher Filter twice. That works for very small amounts of water.
For larger operations you can safely filter out chlorine, and other non-desirable chemicals, by using a whole house solid block carbon filter on your water. I have used these in industrial applications. The one I currently use is the #20 Big Blue Filter housing, with the 20 inch long Pentek EP-20BB Carbon Block Filter Cartridge, 20″ x 4-5/8″, 5 Microns. This lasts me for a year on my home and lab, with a second system needed for outdoor faucets and drip irrigation watering. I have never seen any need for secondary filtration with this system.
Fulvic acid exhibits amazing results when used on plants, including vigorous growth, higher yields, higher quality, and protection from environmental damage, insects, and disease. Scientists have shown that water and fulvic acids pass from the soil, into plant cells, and are transferred to the growing tips of plants, fruits, and seeds, becoming part of the living plant. When I eat those plants and their seeds or fruits, I’m sure that the fulvic acid is coursing through my veins and has combined with my cells. Human and livestock medical studies have shown this to be true. It is how nature intended things to be. In plants, the fulvic acid cells can even participate again in photosynthesis. When grown in fulvic supplemented soil or grow media, fulvic acids have been identified as part of all living plant cells and tissues. No doubt when these plants die the living fulvic properties are even carried forward to compost microorganisms, where they are involved in humification where they become intensified and compounded, converting to humic substances, including fulvic acids. That’s why compost tea has such an amazing invigorating effect on plants in the garden. Yes, fulvic is alive, and is meant to be part of living organisms. Please not that modern agricultural systems have completely broken this cycle.
The True Missing Link
From living plant tissues, the live fulvic acids pass on to both animals and humans, or at least should. We were meant to eat food containing living fulvic acids, besides just carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals. In fact, the living fulvic acids were meant to be part of it all, linking it all together and supercharging living things with unseen energy. The living fulvic acids are what activate, stimulate, and protect everything. Fulvic acid is without a doubt the missing link in all plant, animal, and human health.
The results of living fulvic acids are often miraculous. Fulvic acid has been shown in medical studies to have amazing healing properties. You can consume fulvic acid directly and gain some benefits, possibly because of action with the billions of living microorganisms in your digestive system. There are many great products. Let’s just hope your gut is full of the right microorganisms.
I have learned over decades that the best way for humans to get the full benefit of fulvic acids is to eat live produce that contains fulvic acids in live form. Organic food is good, but even better, is to have the organic food alive with living fulvic acids. That means food grown with optimum levels of fulvic acid in all of the water taken up into the plant. Fulvic acid binds to the water and becomes part of the water. So every cell in the plant or animal is supercharged with fulvic acid.
That’s why we supplement our diet in the winter with living food, plants grown with livings fulvic. You can do it in a greenhouse, but even on a small scale you can do it in your windows. You can use the wonderful Kratky Method of static non-circulating hydroponics. This way you don’t need to filter out the humate solids, and can simply stir solids into the solution and let them fall to the bottom to be further activated by natural bacteria and microbes over time. My tests have shown that one or two grams humate per five gallons of water isn’t quite enough, three grams is perfect, and four or more grams per five gallons of water is too much. These are the proportions that work best for me. In essence I make my own live health supplement right in my sunny window. I’ve successfully grown lettuce, watercress, Thai water spinach or Kang Kong, all of which we eat raw. But best of all, basil flourishes in this environment and gives us daily cuttings once established. We love fresh raw basil pesto.
Currently I am using Live Earth Humate which comes from Southern Utah and is readily available in fifty pound bags from local agricultural suppliers in my area. I have also extensively used humates from Mesa Verde Resources in New Mexico. Whatever brand and form of humates you use, you will need to run your own tests to see what is optimum. And please note that I prefer humate this is in its raw natural form, rather than products that are highly processed or extracted.
I also lightly apply these humates in granular form to soil in my vegetable garden rows, to my orchard, pastures, trees, and potting soil mix. This humate adds humus to the garden soil as it breaks down. I would not garden without it.
And what is this humate? It is simply humic material or rich soil humus from ancient plant deposits, usually found above coal deposits. The humic is simply highly compressed ancient compost, still organic in nature, rather than being an inert substance like rock, coal, oil, or natural gas.
When planted in the same soil and placed in sunshine, why did the fulvic treated seeds grow differently than the control group? The treated seeds became plants that were darker green, even blue-green, more vigorous and healthy throughout their entire life, whether or not the plants were ever treated with fulvic again. Even when the control group was later treated with the appropriate fulvic acid, they did better, but never quite caught up. I often have witnessed this remarkable phenomena.
When untreated plants developed insect problems, particularly aphids, the fulvic treated plants were resistant. Amazingly, when pots of aphid infected plants where moved alongside the pots of fulvic treated plants, and had their branches intertwined, the aphids never moved to the treated plants.
Over time I discovered that all kinds of fulvic treated garden plants exhibited unusual strength and resilience in many ways. I discovered repeatedly that treated plants where more resistant to frost, drought, disease and insects. I pondered this one morning, when my large and rapidly growing tomato plants survived a hard freeze. During the night it rained, then turned to freezing rain. In the morning before sunrise the temperature was 24 degrees Fahrenheit. Puddles around the yard had turned to solid ice. Everything was coated with a layer of ice. My large half-grown tomato plants had fallen to the ground and were covered with an ice layer. They appeared frozen sold, yet when the sun came up and the ice melted the plants stood up with no damage and just went on growing. I had never seen anything like that with untreated tomato seeds or plants.
Where did the energy come from that gave fulvic treated plants and seeds miraculous properties? Where did that special light energy come from that allowed photosynthesis and turned sprouting seeds green in the dark? Why can’t we see the light energy emitting from humic and fulvic substances? At times we can certainly see the effects and results! Why have scientists never been able to unlock and explain this mystery?
These are questions were discussed, when through an interpretor, I conferred with Dr. Boris Levinsky, a Russian scientist who once worked on the Soviet Union’s nuclear program. His studies and interests had changed to agriculture after he had used fulvic and humic to clean up radiation from the Chernobyl disaster. He had helped restore radiation damaged agricultural land to renewed prosperity. He had discovered that humic and fulvic helped neutralize nuclear radiation, that it seemed to soak it up, and then it would just disappear. This was consistent with what other scientists had seen and discovered.
Just like my own experiences, Dr. Levinsky had seen many unusual things in relation to using humic and fulvic in agriculture. Unlike many western scientists, his mind was more open to the secrets and mysteries related to the atomic and subatomic levels, and relationships to nuclear fusion. These are areas where we have barely scratched the surface of discovery.
Just as our sun burns with nuclear fusion, giving off a never-ending source of the highest quality heat and light, this same energy is captured and managed during plant photosynthesis. When the leaves later decompose through humification, this plant energy does not really disappear, the energy is somehow retained, stored, and hidden away in the highly complex molecules that remain. Several scientists have speculated along with me, that the energy likely resides in another dimension, hidden away where we can’t detect or understand it. It is latent energy, just waiting for the right time, the right situation, the right bacteria, so that it might be released and go to work in some of its innumerable and miraculous ways.
Fulvic acid is a humic substance. It is water soluble and biologically active on all plants, animals and humans. Of most importance, and often missed, is fulvic acid’s biological activity on beneficial soil microorganisms. In a special way, beneficial soil microorganisms help unlock the miracle of fulvic acid and put it to use. They also help turn humic into fulvic. They also create humic substances and fulvic acids in the first place.
Yes, fulvic acid is really plural because fulvic acid is not just one chemical substance, in actuality it is as diverse as the millions of beneficial soil bacteria that create it and the compounds they exude. Furthermore, it can be the largest and most complex molecule on earth, while still being of infinitely small size and able to pass through semi-permeable cell membranes and even pass through glass in some instances. No two instances or sources of fulvic acid will be identical, because each will have chelated or attached to different elements or compounds along the way.
To understand fulvic acid, we must understand that it is a humic substance. Humic substances come from humification, which is the end product of microbial decomposition of all living matter. Just like the diversity of all living matter, plant. animal, or microbial, fulvic acid carries some of the source characteristics and DNA fragments. Again, fulvic acid is one of the most complex substances on earth.
On the forest floor, under mature trees, shrubs and grasses, under falling and decomposing leaves, stems, wood, flowers, fruits, seeds, and bark, we find rich black organic soil or humus. The more plant matter, the more humus. Humus is a humic substance. Humus also is the essence of organic gardening and agriculture, or at least it should be, if growers are amending their soil somehow with the right humic substances.
When you hear about comparisons of organic produce to conventional produce, about vitamin and mineral content, everyone ignores the myriad of unique and mostly unknown substances that come from rich soil humus and are taken up into plants. In truly organic agriculture, there are millions of beneficial substances produced in the soil and taken up into plants in trace amounts. Yet these substances are completely neglected either by ignorance or by calculated deception. These little-known substances are closely related to fulvic acid and they truly are the missing link in our diet and they health of all plants, animals, and mankind.
Deep in the earth we find layers of black, brown, or golden material that are remnants of ancient forests that were washed away, submerged under seas, or entombed during cataclysmic events such as during earthquakes, landslides, or volcanic action. This plant matter decomposed either aerobically, with oxygen present, or anaerobically, without oxygen. Either way, this plant matter decomposed similarly to the humus on the forest floor and is identical in nature, and is still organic.
As we know, much of the ancient plant matter entombed in the earth turned to coal, oil, or natural gas. Yet the humic substances, also called humates, never underwent the changes of pressure and heat
In 1996 I registered the fulvic.com domain name. The internet was relatively new. I had just read and studied the 958 page book entitled Humic, Fulvic and Microbial Balance: Organic Soil Conditioning, written and published by William R. Jackson, PhD. in 1993. After actually reading and studying his entire book several times, I was convinced that fulvic acid was an unparalleled miracle. I also decided to make the subject my life’s work.
Actually, Kenneth Westwood gave me the book. He was a friend of Dr. Jackson, and spoke highly of him. I never met Dr. Jackson in person. After reading his book, I was never quite sure if Dr. Jackson really knew and understood completely what he had discovered and uncovered. The book was full of scientific studies, and for me was a reference manual to many of the great scientists and minds of that time.
I soon posted a website on the subject of fulvic acid. I had some agricultural and plant studies, and also a few human and animal studies. It wasn’t long before I was working with scientists from all over the world.
In the United States there was Dr. Robert Faust. We worked closely together. At the time he lived in Hawaii, but came over to the mainland to meet with me on several occasions.
Soon I was contacted by Li Yuzhong in China. He told me about a Chinese book full of human medical studies on fulvic acid. He sent me the book. Dr. Faust and I had the book translated by a scientist in Hawaii. It was a literal goldmine of information.
About the same time, a scientist in Russia contacted me and we started working together. He had many amazing discoveries. He had been working on Russia’s nuclear program and had discovered a power
Humic Substances – Where Did The Stored Solar Energy Go?
Science cannot answer the above question, as we will explain. Trees, shrubs, grasses, plants and leaves are organic and carbon based, created in part by the sun’s energy and storing that energy. When they die and dry out, they easily release their stored solar energy by burning. We see this as a forest fire, grass fire, campfire, fireplace log, etc. Fire is a common and easy way that nature or humans release that stored energy.
When ancient forms of plant material are buried in the earth during catastrophic events, and undergo great pressure and sometimes heat, they lose their organic nature. Coal miners will tell you how they haul giant coal logs and plant matter out of the ground all day. Scientists will tell you how the pressure of the earth pressed the oil out of the plant matter, forming underground reservoirs, and how the decomposition created huge natural gas pockets in the earth. Again, these organic materials turned inorganic, can release their stored solar energy as they fuel powerplants, heat our homes, and fuel our automobiles. This is the sun’s energy being released, simple basic science.
Other ancient plant deposits from an even earlier era, buried deeper, and undergoing natural processes that scientists cannot yet explain, turn into petrified logs, leaves, and plant material containing uranium. Uranium ore is nothing more then once organic plant matter turned into basic mineral rock. Just like coal miners, uranium miners haul logs and plant matter out of the ground all day. Uranium is another way that nature stores the sun’s energy. Any scientist who denies this absolute fact has never worked in a uranium mine. Yet unlike coal, the uranium ore will not burn. Or will it burn? When processed properly by splitting the atom, the uranium releases its stored solar energy through nuclear fission, burning intensely and becoming a source for electrical power or devastating nuclear bombs.
Fulvic, and all humic substances come from the same modern and ancient vegetation sources as described above. Humic substances are found on the earth’s surface as rich dark soil humus, or deeper underground as giant humate beds, sometimes as layers right above coal deposits. Humic substances have decomposed, still remain organic, and have not petrified or turned to rock. So the logs and plant matter are not as visible and distinct while being mined. Although humic matter often looks like coal, it will not burn. Science has not ever figured out how to manipulate humic substances to release the stored solar energy. Science has yet to crack its code. They can’t see or detect the energy, so most think it doesn’t exist. They are wrong. The sun energy is all there, yet very well hidden. As asked at the beginning of this section “Where Did The Stored Solar Energy Go?” Well we are here to tell you that microbes, living cells, and other living organisms can access and utilize it on a very limited basis, with sometimes amazing results.
(1) To duplicate this “photosynthesis in the dark” phenomenon may require prior activation of the fulvic acid in sunlight. Simply put your fulvic acid seed soak extract in an open bottle in a window in direct sunlight for a few days, weeks, or months. This experiment may also be dependent on the type and source of humate used, extraction process, microbes present, germination temperature and conditions, and type of seeds used.
