As an electrolyte, Fulvic Acid is unsurpassed. It carries all the natural components necessary for balance, cellular integrity and electrical potential. When combined with other supplements, it strengthens and adds positive benefit far beyond its role as an essential electrolyte.
Electrolysis and Human Health Medical researchers have long known the vital role of electrolytes in human health. Of this naturally occurring electrolyte, Dr. William R. Jackson, in his well documented book "Organic Soil Conditioning", states: "the physical well being of the organism, whether plant or animal, can be expressed in terms of electrical potential."
"Organic acid has proven to be a powerful organic electrolyte, serving to balance cell life. It is available at times as a donor and at other times as an acceptor, based on the cell’s requirements for balance. If the individual cell is restored to its normal chemical balance and thereby, in turn, its electrical potential, we have given life where death and disintegration would normally occur within the plant and animal cells."
Death in the cell occurs when the electrical potential of the cell membrane is reduced to zero. This was effectively demonstrated by Dr. Crile. An amoeba (a one celled animal) and an auto synthetic cell were used to demonstrate the vital function of electrical potential in all living cells.
When an equal and opposite electrical charge to that of the amoeba reduced the electrical potential of its cell membrane to zero, an astonishing change occurred comparable to death. Movement was arrested and the amoeba became spherical in form. The outer cell membrane then ruptured and granules could be seen floating out into the surrounding fluid.
Before the tears in the membrane became too excessive, the researchers reversed the process and restored the electrical potential of the cell membrane again to normal.
They then witnessed a remarkable demonstration of the vital role of electrical potential in all living cells. The amoeba’s form was reconstructed to a viable, living organism and it again became active and healthy. Reestablishing the cell’s normal electrical potential had given life where death and disintegration would otherwise have occurred.
Electrolytes are salts; sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphate and chloride. These electrolytes allow signals to travel throughout your body. When you brain tells your finger to move, it sends the signal through electrolytes that saturate your body. They regulate many critical functions such as heartbeat and muscle contraction.
Because of their ability to stimulate nerves throughout the body, an imbalance can cause serious negative effects on the body, some that are potentially deadly.
Sodium: helps send signals with the nervous system, movement or muscle contraction and helps your body maintain water.
Potassium: helps regulate heart beat, blood pressure and muscle functions.
Magnesium: helps with building your bones, heart rhythms, muscle contractions, strength, digestion and reduce anxiety.
Calcium: helps with the clotting of blood, dividing cells, maintaining bones, communication between your brain and your body, and muscle contraction.
An electrolyte imbalance can be noticed fairly quickly. As you may notice in sports, athletes can become more than dehydrated, they need electrolytes or their muscle begin to spasm. Since there are several electrolytes, and depending on where your levels are, a plethora of symptoms may occur as follows:
