Most of the elements in the soil are used by the microorganisms in making enzymes. Ashortage of elements means a shortage of enzymes. A shortage of enzymes means a shortageof compounds catalyzed by the enzymes, and hence malfunction of enzyme systems in all thelife forms dependent on the soil mineral supply. The fact that Johnnie can’t read and that wehave a $200 billion annual national medical bill both stem from the same cause—a poordelivery of elements from the soil in both quantity and balance1.
The Age of Chemical Agriculture
Our Soil – An Incomplete Puzzle
- Humin – 1,140 years
- Humic Acids – 1,235 years
- Fulvic Acids – 870 years2
Fulvic Acids – The Missing Piece?
Fulvic Acids’ History as a Treatment
“Re-mineralization of soils would be of little benefit without microbes, the fulvic acid they produce, and return to better farming practices. Re-mineralization of our bodies without the fulvic acid that should be contained in the plants we eat, has proven just as useless. People are sick with degenerative and deficiency related diseases now more than ever. With fulvic acid supplementation and return to proper diet and farming practices these situations have the potential to be remedied.”5
The Marketing Hype
“I had sinned against the wisdom of the Creator, and received my righteouspunishment. I wished to improve his work, and in my blindness believed that,in the marvelous chain of laws binding life on earth’s surface and keeping italways new, a link had been forgotten which I, weak and powerless worm,must supply.”—Justus von Liebig, late in life quoted from Encyclopedia Britannica , 1899;removed from subsequent editions.1
