Frequent Google search : Is Zeolite the same as humic and fulvic acid?
The short answer is “no”. But, as a combination of Zeolite (Clinoptilolite) and humic fulvic minerals becomes more popular – this question is becoming an increasingly common google search. The reason is that many folks have never heard of ANY of these supplements, and when they are combined – while the efficacy is increased, the confusion for some consumers may, as well.
Black Earth® Zeolite by the Food Movement was one of the first combinations of Zeolite (Clinoptilolite) extracted in pure water and combined with humic and fulvic minerals. It was originally marketed in 2011 under the name Whole Earth Minerals, and sold primarily through naturopathic doctors.
In 2020 the product was relaunched as Black Earth® Zeolite, and many felt that this more descriptive name helps customers understand that the product contains humic acid and fulvic acid which are darker in color. Zeolite extracts, without humic and fulvic acid, are often clear or very light in color.
The Food Movement Natural Products Company also markets a product that is essentially the same product without Zeolite, which is called Black Earth® Fulvic trace minerals. While humic fulvic minerals can help with the absorption and assimilation of Zeolite, they also have many benefits of their own – including being anti-viral*, promoting mineral absorption, supporting higher oxygen levels in the body*, and helping to support better overall health.
