Fulvic acid: natural electrolyte and chelating agent
For Beachport it was one thing to have mastered the science behind seagrass concentrate, then adjust the formula to include trace elements, but the magic was still to come in the fulvic acid.
Fulvic acid is one of nature’s most powerful natural electrolytes and a naturally occurring chelating agent. It stimulates the rumen, is completely soluble, can bond and dissolve minerals and nutritional elements, and carry minerals and trace elements into cells. In our products, there are more than 60!
An important consideration in animal nutrition is the rate at which feed is degraded in the rumen. This was a key consideration in Beachport developing an efficient and effective supplement.
“Fulvic acid is extracted from a plant derived natural process and is an exclusively Australian processed product which is certified organic by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia (NASAA). The fulvic acids are extracted using a unique process to maintain the integrity, stability and most importantly biology of the end product.
There has been sufficient research completed throughout the world to prove that fulvic acids can increase the absorption and retention of minerals and nutrients, both within plants and animals.
The properties of fulvic acid, which enable it to achieve the best results as animal supplements are:
- They are strong natural electrolytes and hence have high chelating and cation exchanging properties. This enables the fulvic acid to bind to the nutrients, enhancing the availability and absorption of nutrients within the animal rumen.
- The low molecular weight and bio-transporting ability of fulvic helps to carry the held nutrients into the living cells. Once the nutrients blend into the fulvic acid complex, they become bio-active and bio-available.
- Fulvic acid, because of its electrolytic properties, helps to restore the electrical balance that has been disturbed during stress periods.”

Our unique chelated formulation
The Beachport Liquid Minerals chelation method allows our supplements to pass through the rumen without being broken down, for a more energy efficient and functional absorption directly into the bloodstream via the small intestine.
