What essential minerals are found in fulvic acid?

Fulvic acid is a complex organic compound that contains a variety of minerals and trace elements. These minerals and trace elements bind to the organic molecules in a way that enhances their bioavailability. The specific minerals found in fulvic acid products can vary depending on its source. Generally, they should contain macro-minerals, micro-minerals (trace minerals), rare earth elements, and other trace elements. Our Great Trace Fulvic Acid contains an exclusive array of these essential minerals and elements.

Macro-Minerals in Great Trace

Macro-minerals are essential for numerous physiological functions in the human body. They are required in larger amounts compared to trace minerals and play a critical role in maintaining overall health, including bone structure, fluid balance, nerve function, and muscle function. Well-known and major macro minerals include:

  1. Calcium (Ca): Essential for the development and maintenance of strong bones and teeth, calcium is also crucial for muscle function, nerve signaling, and blood clotting.
  2. Magnesium (Mg): Important for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, magnesium supports muscle and nerve function, regulates blood pressure, and plays a critical role in energy production.
  3. Potassium (K): Key for maintaining proper cell function, potassium helps regulate fluid balance, muscle contractions, and nerve signals.
  4. Phosphorus (P): Plays a significant role in the formation of bones and teeth. Phosphorus is also essential in energy production and the synthesis of DNA and RNA.
  5. Sulfur (S): Integral to the structure of amino acids and proteins, sulfur is also necessary for the synthesis of certain vitamins and enzymes.
  6. Sodium (Na): Essential for maintaining fluid balance, sodium is also crucial for nerve function and muscle contractions.

Micro-Minerals (Trace Minerals) in our fulvic minerals

Micro-minerals, required in smaller amounts than macro-minerals, are vital for various biochemical processes and maintaining overall health. They often act as cofactors for enzymes and support in immune function, growth, and development.

  1. Iron (Fe): Vital for the production of hemoglobin, iron is essential for oxygen transport in the blood and plays a role in energy metabolism and immune function.
  2. Manganese (Mn): Important for bone formation, manganese also helps in the metabolism of amino acids, cholesterol, and carbohydrates.
  3. Copper (Cu): Necessary for the formation of red blood cells, copper also supports immune function, bone health, and the maintenance of blood vessels.
  4. Zinc (Zn): Crucial for immune function, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.
  5. Cobalt (Co): A component of vitamin B12, cobalt is essential for red blood cell production and neurological function.
  6. Molybdenum (Mo): Plays a role in the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids and the breakdown of certain toxic substances.
  7. Iodine (I): Essential for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, which regulate metabolism, growth, and development.
  8. Selenium (Se): Functions as an antioxidant, selenium helps protect cells from damage and supports thyroid function and the immune system.
  9. Chromium (Cr): Important for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, chromium enhances the action of insulin.

Rare earth elements

Rare earth elements, though required in very minute quantities, are crucial for various biochemical and physiological functions. Their roles are less well-understood but evidence suggests they are important for certain biological processes.

  1. Vanadium (V): Believed to play a role in bone growth and the regulation of blood sugar levels, vanadium may have insulin-mimetic properties.
  2. Titanium (Ti): supports bone and joint health, possibly by enhancing the effectiveness of calcium.
  3. Lithium (Li): Primarily known for its use in psychiatric medication, lithium in trace amounts may support mood regulation and cognitive function.
  4. Rubidium (Rb): Potentially involved in enzyme activity and metabolic processes, rubidium’s exact role in human health is not well-defined.
  5. Cesium (Cs): believed to contribute to cellular function.

Other trace elements in our fulvic acid

Our bodies require very small amounts of other trace elements. However, they are crucial for maintaining health and supporting various physiological functions.

  1. Nickel (Ni): Important for the proper functioning of certain enzymes, nickel is involved in hormone production and lipid metabolism.
  2. Silicon (Si): Essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, silicon supports bone health, skin elasticity, and the integrity of connective tissues.
  3. Boron (B): Supports bone health by influencing the metabolism of calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus; boron also plays a role in hormone regulation.
  4. Aluminum (Al): Although its role in human health is controversial, aluminum in small amounts is thought to support brain and skeletal health.
  5. Fluorine (F): Vital for dental health, fluorine strengthens tooth enamel and helps prevent dental caries; it also supports bone health.


    Each of these minerals contributes to the complex network of biochemical processes necessary for maintaining health and well-being. Their presence in fulvic acid enhances its potential as a nutritional supplement, providing a wide range of essential nutrients in a highly bioavailable form.
