Frequently Asked Questions
How do Trace Minerals benefit health?
You can trace every health condition to a mineral deficiency, to paraphrase the two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling. As important as vitamins are, they can work better with trace minerals. Trace minerals are what the body uses to sustain all cellular activity. †
Is it possible that our soil is depleted of nutrients?
In the document which was presented to the US Senate it stated the “…inorganic toxic chemicals, pesticides and herbicides have destroyed nearly all the critical organic minerals, elements and complexes in our soils. A marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals compromises health.” *†
How could fruits & veggies be low in Trace Minerals?
After years of over farming and heavy fertilizer use, the soil can lose all of its good, wholesome virtues. Even still, farmers still grow good-looking fruits and vegetables by using high doses of fertilizer. The fruit and vegetables will have good caloric content but may have very little in the form of real nutrition, including trace minerals. Most produce, unless it has been grown on a sustainable organic farm, may fall under this category. †
Why are Deep Earth’s Trace Minerals bonded to humates?
Humates and fulvates are fully functional organic electrolytes. As a result, they also assist in the making the trace minerals more bioavailable through their special bonding properties. This is a break though in trace mineral supplementation! †
Which form of Trace Minerals is more bioavailable… Colloidal or humates?
Colloidal minerals are simply extra-small mineral particles suspended in a solution. It has been stated that colloidal minerals are so small that they require no effort to be absorbed. The hype behind the colloidal minerals tells us that the particles are so small that they will absorb directly into your body’s tissues. Yet, by definition, we are told that colloidal substances will not diffuse easily through our cell membranes. On the other hand, the trace minerals in the Sharpa’sTM product line are bound to humic and fulvic acid. This organic bond is preferable over colloidal bonds. †
What are humates?
Humic and fulvic acids are the principal components of organic humates. They were formed by nature over 65 million years ago by the breakdown of plants and other living things. Humic and fulvic acids are found in specific geological formations, fresh water lakes and ocean water. Humates are a complex mixture of many different organic acids containing antioxidant corboxyl and phenholic groups. The humates in our products have a PH of 7, which is neutral. In agriculture, humates are used to enrich the soil. When humic and fulvic acids are present, plant life and produce thrives! †
Humates help promote:
- Energy Levels †
- Immunity & natural resistance †
- Bioavailability of trace minerals †
- Healthy electrolyte balance †
- Antioxidant defense due to polyphenol content †
- Multiple body systems health including the digestive system, thyroid, muscle, heart, blood cells, hemoglobin & vitamin B12 levels, amino acid synthesis and antioxidant enzyme levels. †
Are humates good for the immune system?
National Institutes of Health, one of the world’s foremost medical research centers, has sponsored studies to research the immune activity of humic acid. Early indicators suggest that humic acid may play an important role in supporting multiple mechanisms of the immune system. †
How does wellness support the immune system?
Humic and Fulvic acids contain powerful antioxidants called polyphenols. Research shows there is a direct link to antioxidant nutrition and immune health. Further, the formula contains nutrients cysteine, glutamine and selenium. They are vital building blocks for the antioxidant glutathione peroxidase which helps to rally the immune defense response. Vitamin D3 has receptors on virtually every type of cell involved with immunity. Resveratrol may also help to support the body’s healthy inflammatory response when the immune system is undergoing stress †
What are the Benefits of Prime Humic & Fulvic Acid Liquid Concentrate?
Each 1⁄2 tablespoon contains 2,000 mg of humic and fulvic organic acids. At this time, our product contains the highest levels available. The fast acting liquid concentrate is very beneficial when your natural resistance is challenged. †
What is Zeolite Extra?
Zeolite is a volcanic mineral which was created when ash and lava from a volcano has a chemical reaction with sea water. The result is a compound with a cage-like structure with a negative charge. The negative charge acts like a magnet to attract positively charged compounds. It is hypothesized these compounds are trapped in its cage-like structure and carried out of the body. We use the micronized powder form of Zeolite which is the form shown effective in all of the scientific studies. Sharpa’s Zeolite Extra also contains humic & fulvic acids plus 70+ trace minerals. †
What is the source of humate-bound Trace Minerals?
The humates are derived from the ancient fresh water beds, when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Our source is highly concentrated in organic humic and fulvic acids. †
Are your humates chemically processed?
Deep Earth Minerals’ Humic & Fulvic Acid products are unique in that they are not treated with chemicals to isolate the active constituents. Further, they are not treated with heat or pressure. The humic and fulvic acids are certified organic.
Are all Deep Earth Minerals products non-GMO certified?
Yes, all of our products contain ingredients that are not genetically modified.
Are your Humic & Fulvic Acids organic?
Yes, the humate raw material has been certified organic.
Are your products vegetarian approved?
All products in the Deep Earth Mineral line are vegetarian approved.
Why are the liquids (Humic/Fulvic, Zeolite, Prime Humic) brown in color?
Humates, like their sister cousin tannins found in black tea, are organic in their nature and subsequently naturally colored brown.
What do the liquid supplements taste like?
Despite the brown color of the liquid Mega Humic/Fulvic and Zeolite+ by EarthTM, they taste mostly like water with a hint of metallic taste, which is an indicator of the presence of trace minerals. Conversely, there are several concentrated ionic mineral liquids that have a very harsh taste.
How many Trace Minerals are in each of your formulations?
Each product in the line contains 70+ trace minerals in potencies that support the body’s optimal health.†
What do I do if I get any of the brown colored liquid on my clothes?
Deep Earth Minerals’ liquids are dark brown colored and will stain fabrics and clothing so be careful while handling them. If they get on your hands, wash in cold water until the organic stain disappears.
