Why our horses need Humic + Fulvic in their diet



70 Trace Minerals that are often lacking in our horse's diets are found in this magical dirt.

And for those who are wondering BLACK MAGIC Broad is a lot more potent than most other forms of Humic + Fulvic available and is a 100% organic product.


Did you know it is sourced from a peat bog that is over 60,000 year old? It is extracted 60 feet deep into the Earth then freeze- dried then re-activated. We searched far and wide to find the very best quality and have the most potent form of Fulvic + Humic available.

Humic and Fulvic are one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants. Studies show that Humic and Fulvic molecules carry both a negative and a positive charge, making them both a donor and acceptor, which neutralises free radicals.




Fulvic acid - the mineral bomb

Fulvic acid is a super-nutrient that literally comes from the dirt. It’s an organic compound found in water and soil.

You might not hear fulvic named quite as often as probiotics, for your horses health, but it’s extremely important for helping to boost the effectiveness of the immune system, aid digestion, detox, and protect their overall health.

Because we’ve depleted our soils (through pesticides, herbicides, and reusing the dirt for multiple crops without replenishing organic nutrients), our horses are lacking the fulvic and humic they need for optimal health. Farmers used to reintroduce compost and organic compounds to the soil after a round of crops, in addition to rotating crops to ensure nutrients were getting back into the soil. This is more sustainable, better for the environment, and better for those consuming the crops grown.

With commercialized farming, there’s no time to let the soil rest between crops. “Constant-cropping” in quick succession leads to an overgrowth of detrimental pathogens, and a reduction in beneficial ones. In the end, this means introduction of more pesticides (to keep the bugs in line), less nutrients, and more chemicals in their food. It’s a vicious cycle.

For now, a good solution is supplementing with the missing soil nutrients, because they provide so many systemic benefits to our horses.

Benefits

Soil-based organisms (SBOs) boost the immune system

There’s a reason why soil-based products are a hot topic lately. We are realizing that our soil is depleted, lacking minerals, and it’s time to go back to the earth for the answers.

Humic + Fulvic acid does just that. It replenishes the body with naturally-occurring SBOs, which have been shown to improve immune system response. According to a recent study, this type of organism has been useful for any horse suffering from allergies and

chronic illnesses.

Help gut health

Gut issues, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), and (intestinal permeability that allows undigested food and toxins to cross over from the intestines to the bloodstream), Gastric Ulcers are a modern-day epidemic in horses. But even seemingly less-threatening issues, like mild diarrhea are extremely prevalent, likely due to medications, pesticides in feeds, environmental stress, and many other reasons. One thing is for sure: healthy gut, healthy horse.

Help with absorption of nutrients

Humic/Fulvic is bioavailable, meaning it’s easy for horses to absorb and process. Fulvic has a low molecular weight, so it can pass through cells easily and transport minerals quickly. It can carry up to 60 times its own weight! It also “lowers the surface tension of water,” which allows the water to penetrate and hydrate other molecules with

more efficiency.

BLACK MAGIC Broad contains more than 70 trace minerals. Nutrients are needed in the soil of plants for proper growth, and they’re similar to essential minerals for horses and other livestock too. Plants need, of course, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. They also need so-called “macro-elements” phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, potassium.

Naturally detox heavy metals

Humic + Fulvic can remove and transport metals from the body, specifically “metallo-proteins.” Humic/Fulvic acid has been shown to bind well to lead, as well.

Mineral Deficiencies: A Problem that Humic/Fulvic

May Help

Mineral deficiencies are a problem for many reasons, including diet, soil, gut health impairments, lack of nutrient absorption, genetic factors, generational deficiencies, and more.

There are so many nutrients to choose from when you start replenishing your horse's depleted body, but it can be dangerous to consume too much of one isolated mineral, because it throws off the mineral ratio. Certain minerals function together on a continuum, like magnesium, calcium, potassium, and sodium.

For example, if you just take isolated magnesium, your sodium levels can be negatively impacted, which can, in turn, affect the ratio of sodium to potassium.

The good news is that humic + fulvic functions more like a food-based mineral bomb since it’s full of so many types of minerals and nutrients. It’s also bioavailable, so the benefits of humic + fulvic are easy for the horse's digestive system to recognize and absorb. When you give your horse a variety of sources, there’s a much better chance that multiple minerals will be absorbed by the body--not just one--leading to better body balance.

We do not encourage over usage of isolated chemistry. Synergy via complete compounds is our goal. It’s all about balance!
