What’s the source of environmental fulvic acid? Why it’s important to know!

It’s impossible to tell from which source environmental fulvic acid products come from. Whereas CHD-FA™ is manufactured to exacting pharmaceutical standards in a GMP registered facility, making it the obvious choice when choosing a fulvic acid product.

It is common knowledge that all forms of fulvic acid other than CarboHydrate Derived Fulvic Acid (CHD-FA™) are contaminated as fulvic is a potent chelator. All other forms are extracted from the environment. Examples are Andean peat in South America, Himalayan shale in India, peat in Hungary, black coal in Africa, brown coal in Australia and human sewerage in China. It is impossible to tell the fulvic source of fulvic acid products on the market comes from.

It is Fulvimed’s understanding that none of the fulvic acid products sold in stores and online have any safety and toxicity data to back them up. None have gone through human clinical trials and have been cross-referenced to various articles and claims.

CHD-FA™ is produced in a 1200 sq.m certified Good Manufacturing Production (GMP) facility. This is a pharmaceutical-grade facility with GMP for both manufacturing the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) CHD-FA™ even though CHD-Fulvic Acid™ is sold as a natural complementary medicine and GMP for packaging products. These take the form of liquids, gels, lotions, tablets and capsules.

CHD-FA vs. Environmental Fulvic Acid

So, what are the characteristics of CHD-FA™ versus other environmental fulvic acids?

CHD-FA™ is low in heavy metal content

Heavy metals are characterised by having a relatively high mass and density and are poisonous at low concentrations. Examples are Arsenic, Lead, Mercury, Chromium, Cadmium and Thallium. Fulvimed has undertaken exhaustive testing comparing CHD-Fulvic Acid against fulvic extracted from black coal and brown coal. Here are some examples listed at micrograms per litre:
Arsenic – black coal 3630, brown coal 253, CHD-FA 11.
Lead – black coal 562, brown coal 309, CHD-FA 0.
Chromium – black coal 3288, brown coal 2435, CHD-FA 36.
Aluminium – black coal 913 900, brown coal 713 800, CHD-FA 121.

CHD-FA™ contains no herbicide and pesticide residues

Fulvic acid extracts from peat are relatively low in heavy metals. We travelled to Hungary to obtain an extract of fulvic acid from peat which is sold commercially in pharmacies. The analysis was performed in Germany showed high levels of the agricultural poison DDT (dichlorophenyltrichloroethane), an agricultural poison that has been banned in Europe for 30 years. Somehow residues of DDT have found their way into the crystal clear waters of the Hungarian highlands where the peat is harvested from.

CHD-FA™ is a uniform and stable GMP product

As mentioned earlier CHD-Fulvic Acid™ is manufactured to exacting standards in a GMP registered facility. Batch to batch CHD-FA™ is uniform and stable, passing numerous analytical tests before being signed off by a pharmacist. It’s unlike fulvic from nature which can never be uniform due to the source.

CHD-FA™ is nontoxic and safe

As mentioned earlier, CHD-Fulvic Acid™ is the only fulvic acid product on the market that has been clinically tested for safety and that has passed all safety work as required by Pharmaceutical OECD guidelines as per full GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) testing across the globe since 2016 to pharmaceutical standards.

In conclusion: Know what you are taking

It’s important to know what we are putting into our bodies, as it can have lasting effects on our health & wellness. The fact is that CHD-FA™ provides all the natural healing properties of fulvic acid, without the heavy metals and contaminants found in environmental fulvic acid. Choose well…
