In order to understand the manufacturing process of FulvicForce fulvic acid product one needs to be reminded how coal was created.

Coal is called a fossil fuel because it was formed from the remains of vegetation that grew as long as 400 million years ago. Most of coal started to form about 300 million years ago, when much of the earth was covered by steamy swamps. As plants and trees died, their remains sank to the bottom of the swampy areas, accumulating layer upon layer and eventually forming a soggy, dense material called peat. Peat is a material composed of decaying plant matter, or humic substances, of which two principal components are humic and fulvic acids.  But the concentrations of fulvic acid in many peats are relatively low.

Over long periods of time rocks, sands, silts and other matter buried the peat and cut off oxygen from peat deposits. The pressure and heat, associated with increasingly deeper burial, squeezed moisture out of the peat and, eventually compacted it into coal. So, coal is really made of fossilised ancient plants starved of oxygen. The slow process of transformation and compression of peat into coal further concentrated ancient humic substances, including fulvic acid, in some coal types more than in the others. But fulvic acid locked in coal remains at best a “fulvic acid potential”, which still needs to be unlocked.

Our patented manufacturing process essentially reverses the process by which coal is formed – instead of humic and fulvic substances losing oxygen that over millions of years created coal, the coal is oxidised back to humic and fulvic content it holds.  Sometimes the products of such process are called oxifulvates (fulvic acids derived from coal through the process of re-oxygenation) and oxihumates. While differences exist between fulvic and humic acids, fulvic acid is, essentially, a sub-class of humic acid, typically richer in oxygen content and with lighter molecular weight.

FulvicForce fulvic acid is manufactured from a South African brown and low-bituminous coal originating from Waterberg, with a particularly rich content of ancient humic substances. Our manufacturing process is purpose-designed, patented and in accordance with the good manufacturing practices (GMP) guidelines.
