How to Detoxify the Body of Heavy Metals and Toxins

Toxic build up in the body is often overlooked and can cause a wide array of health issues. Our Zuma Nutrition team have created a powerful detoxification formula using all natural ingredients in our Fulvic Acid & Trace Ocean Mineral Tonic.

Studies show that fulvic acid may improve cellular function, detoxify toxins and heavy metals from the body, is a powerful antioxidant, has antimicrobial and neuroprotective properties, and is strongly anti-inflammatory. Our Zuma Nutrition team has spent the last four decades searching the globe for the most vital nutrients for health and longevity. Of all the amazing herbs and nutritional supplements that we have researched, fulvic acid is the most unique. In this article, we will be focusing on the detoxification benefits of fulvic acid.


What is Fulvic Acid?


Before diving into the detoxification benefits of fulvic acid, we want to explain a bit about what this amazing compound is. Fulvic acid is a naturally occurring compound found in soils, compost, and marine sediments. It is formed through the decomposition of organic substances by chemical and biological processes, such as the breakdown of food in a compost heap. It can be extracted from compost, soil, and other substances to be processed into a supplement, and is known to have an impressive diversity of health benefits.


Why Does Fulvic Acid Help With Detoxification?


Fulvic acid is a powerful chelator, and it may be capable of binding to and breaking down toxins and metals that enter the body through food supply, water, prescription medications, household products and air pollution. Studies have found that humic acids have ion-selective electrodes that can be used for attracting heavy metals then making them water soluble, which makes the body capable of easily eliminating them.


One of the unique and valuable properties of fulvic acid complexes is that they are of a low molecular weight, and because of this they are also of low molecular size, and are therefore capable of a high degree of penetration into cells. This makes fulvic acid useful for improved absorption of nutrients, and also makes it one of the most powerful agents of detoxification.


Why Should You Care About Toxins?


In 1974, the World Health Organization had stated that approximately 84% of all chronic diseases are created by environmental toxins. Over the past 40 years this number has increased dramatically. Environmental toxicity is one of the major epidemics of this lifetime, infiltrating the human body from food, water, everyday hygiene products, and air.


Symptoms of Toxic Build-up in the Body Include:


  • Gut Health Issues
  • Dehydration
  • Nervous system symptoms (e.g. numbness, tingling of hands and feet, and weakness)
  • Anemia (a classic symptom of chronic metal exposure)
  • Kidney damage
  • Liver damage
  • Lung issues
  • Brain dysfunction such as memory loss
  • Horizontal lines on the nails
  • Mood swings

What are the Benefits of Removing Toxins from the Body?

Take two different people for example, one with low energy, a pale face, and dark circles under the eyes, compared to another person with rosy cheeks, vital energy, and glowing skin, what is the difference between these two people? It is often a sign of the amount of toxins being carried in the body, also known as toxic load.

Every day humans are exposed to toxins that have negative impacts on health and longevity. These microscopic particles go easily unnoticed, but the effect they have on health is significant. Unless special care is taken to avoid ingesting these toxins and to detoxify these toxins from the body, they may build up in tissues and lead to a variety of health issues.

The liver is the first pass for all toxins that enter the body, and is also the hardest working organ with over 500 jobs. One of the most important roles of the liver is to neutralize toxins that enter the body, and use enzyme pathways to eliminate them from the body. The liver naturally detoxifies the body, however, even this remarkable organ can be excessively burdened by the assault of toxins so common in everyday life. Chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, processed sugar, rancid oils, excess alcohol, pollution and the constant stress that so many of people face today can overburden the liver and prevent it from performing optimally.

By lowering our toxic load through lifestyle choices and detoxification compounds such as fulvic acid, the liver can focus on its other important jobs such as fat metabolism and protein synthesis. 

The benefits of a low toxic load in the body include:

  • Increased energy and vitality
  • Improved metabolism and gut health
  • Greater immune system function
  • Enhanced cognitive functioning and mental health
  • Improved mood and sleep
  • Greater lung and heart health, among other benefits


What Makes Zuma’s Fulvic Acid & Trace Ocean Minerals Formula Unique?


Fulvic acid, extracted from humic ore, is a weak organic acid that can penetrate cell walls. Our team use humic ore that is naturally high in fulvic acid, and age it for 1 year prior to processing. Aging the humic ore oxidizes it properly and makes it more porous, which then allows us to extract the water soluble fulvic minerals/acids using no solvents except the natural spring water from the same land where we obtain the humic ore. The extraction method is a simple, gravity-fed process in which the spring water flows through the humic ore and emerges as fulvic acid; simply the “tea” of the humic ore.


This formula is an all-natural, proprietary formulation of concentrated fulvic acid bonded with ancient ocean-derived trace minerals, seaweed-derived calcium and magnesium. It contains over 70 trace minerals, naturally-occurring in their ionic form. Fulvic Acid helps with the absorption of trace ocean minerals, fueling the body’s electricity through providing electrons and vitality boosting benefits, brain sharpening nootropic benefits, and chronic fatigue relief.

Fulvic acid is truly a groundbreaking discovery in the field of health and nutrition. Not only does it detoxify heavy metals and other toxins from the body, it also offers the body an increased absorption of nutrients, reduces inflammation, improves gut health, protects brain health, and provides a range of other health benefits.


Some additional notes on our proprietary formula include:


  • No chemicals, flavorings, preservatives, or sweeteners
  • A good source of carbon-bonded trace minerals
  • Helps to enliven water by adding electrolytes and micronutrients
  • Sustainably wild harvested
  • Acts as an adaptogen
  • Small batch manufactured with intention and purity as top priority
