If a healthy body is your goal, you must take action to protect against free radical attacks. In recent years, dramatic increases of free radicals in our air, food and water have put a tremendous strain on the body’s natural defense mechanisms. Our first line of defense against free radicals is a generous supply of free radical scavengers, called antioxidants.

Free radicals are highly reactive molecules or fragments of molecules that contain one or more unpaired electrons. They circulate through the body, causing mischief by bonding to and injuring tissues. In addition to destroying tissue, they increase the probability that injured cells will become susceptible to any number of infections and diseases, or mutate and cause cancer.

According to Sesesi Y. Chen and M. Schnitzer, authors of Soil Biology and Biochemistry, fulvic acid has the ability to dramatically reduce the oxidative effects of free radicals. This means fulvic acid (not to be confused with folic acid) could potentially help your body ward off disorders such as cancer, premature aging, wrinkling of the skin and arthritis, which are hastened by oxidation.

In recent years, efforts have been made to locate and isolate compounds with an extraordinary affinity for free radicals. Entire industries have evolved around such efforts, with nearly every vendor of health food products offering possible solutions.

There are three identified categories of free radicals and numerous identified free radical scavengers, the best known among them being vitamins A, C, E, gamma–linoleic acid, l-cysteine, l-glutathione, selenium and CoQ10. Each of these free radical scavengers eradicates a different category of free radicals. It is a complicated process to get the right nutrients in the correct amounts along with all the co-factors needed to make them work.

Scientists have found that fulvic acid is a powerful, natural electrolyte that can eradicate any form of free radical. It can act as an acceptor or as a donor in the creation of electrochemical balance. Fulvic acid contains an immense arsenal of powerful phytochemicals, biochemicals, supercharged antioxidants, free radical scavengers, superoxide dismutases, nutrients, enzymes, hormones, amino acids, antibiotics, antivirals and antifungals.
