Why Are Oganic Matter Levels Important in Soil?
HUMIC/FULVIC Acid Mineral is naturally occurring plant nutrient minerals (organic soil matter), found 30+ feet below ground. In warmer climates, less dramatically changing, rains flood rivers, producing abundant vegetable growth …. depositing a thick layer of silt, which comes from ultra-basic igneous rock, which is CHOCK FULL of PLANT NUTRIENTS. This is Humic/Fulvic Acid Minerals, NATURAL ORGANIC SOIL MATTER. The nutritional quality of food coming from a piece of this ground is a function of the amount and ratios of mineralization in the soil, therefore organic matter level in soil is important for producing nutrient rich foods.
Organic foods (fruits, vegetables, etc.), coming from organic matter, healthy soils and natural systems differs from food grown with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. The foods from these organic soils have higher level of micro-phytonutrients (plant based substances). Phyto-micronutrients, especially those in the brassica family, (brassica is: a plant related to cabbage: a plant of the mustard family, e.g. cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, or mustard), studies show potential in reducing the risk of cancer, stimulation to immune function, and anti-viral properties. This is why we hear eating cruciferous veggies or to “eat your greens” is commonly spoken now, and recognize as good for us. Mostly all of these natural health boosters are most available in FRESH, RAW vegetables and fruit, grown in healthy soils. Studies have also shown that organic plant product, tends to have more dry matter and more minerals, like magnesium and iron, which is critical for calcium uptake and more anti-oxidant micronutrients such as phenol and Resveratrol. Dry matter or [otherwise known as dry weight] is a measurement of the mass of something when completely dried.
Examples of different parts of plants used as vegetables (Plants = Food Nutrient)
The list of food items called “vegetable” is quite long, and includes many different parts of plants:
Flower bud = broccoli, cauliflower, globe artichokes, capers
Seeds = Sweet corn (maize), peas, beans
Leaves = kale, collard greens, spinach, arugula, beet greens, bok choy, chard, choi sum, turnip greens, endive, lettuce, mustard greens, watercress, garlic chives & gai lan
Leaf sheaths = Leeks
Buds = Brussels sprouts
Stem = Kohlrabi, galangal, and ginger
Stems of leaves = celery, rhubarb, cardoon, Chinese celery
Stem shoots asparagus, bamboo shoots
Tubers = potatoes, Jerusalem artichokes, sweet potatoes, taro, and yams
Whole-plant sprouts = soybean (moyashi), mung beans, urad, and alfalfa.
Roots = carrots, parsnips, beets, radishes, rutabagas, turnips, and burdocks.
Bulbs = onions, shallots, garlic
Fruits in the botanical sense, but used as vegetables – tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, zucchinis, pumpkins, peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, christophene, okra, breadfruit and avocado, and also the following:Legumes = green beans, lentils, snow peas & soybean
Why Natural Organic Matter Level in Soil?
Naturally occurring Organic Matter provides phytomins, which are the vitamin-like substances that fully ensure healthy plants.
Factors in Soil Formation
For decades now, food has been grown in mineral and nutrient depleted soils/fields. Organic plants grown in nutrient rich soil with the proper amount of organic matter contains substantially higher amounts of phytonutrients, which not only prevent, but also reverse disease. Non-Chemicalized foods are better to purchase and consume than foods which provide marginal nutrition and enhances chances for cells to become diseased and sick.
Plants are nourished by this soil and share their roots, leaves, fruits and vegetables with sentient animals as nourishment; eventually all things return to earth, where micro-organisms continue to cycle (THIS IS WHY HUMIC/FULVIC MINERALS are plentiful). In the ongoing transformation of matter and energy, from one form into another, each creature plays a unique role in the magnificent song of life. However, this God created process is in peril, due to modern farming practices, corporate industry, etc., which behaves more like an avaricious cancer than wise stewards/protectors of this planet EARTH.
More important than symptoms are the conditions which give rise to the symptoms. When plants need pesticides, herbicides and fungicides to grow, we must address the soil; the micro-organisms, organic matter and minerals. POWERFUL HEALING begins at the ROOT, NOT THE LEAVES! If the roots are sick then the whole tree will perish, if the cell is unhealthy, eventually the body breaks down and fails. When the body is mired by illness, we must rectify the conditions giving rise to the disease, namely TOXICITY and DEFICIENCY in the body, mind and spirit.
Organic foods (fruits, vegetables, etc.), coming from organic matter, healthy soils and natural systems differs from food grown with synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. The foods from these organic soils have higher level of micro-phytonutrients (plant based substances). Phyto-micronutrients, especially those in the brassica family, (brassica is: a plant related to cabbage: a plant of the mustard family, e.g. cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, or mustard), in studies show potential in reducing the risk of cancer, stimulation to immune function, and anti-viral properties.

HUMIC/FULVIC MINERALS have the ability to increase absorption, due to its molecule size.
Humic Acid Mineral = long chain molecule
Fulvic Acid Mineral = short chain molecule.
Resveratrol – is found in the skin and seeds of red grapes as well as in wine, berries and some plants. It is a substance produced by plants in response to injury or fungal infection; it protects their delicate tissues from perioxidative stress and other damage that might result from illness, UV sun radiation or exposure to toxic substances. As an antioxidant, Resveratrol is believed to provide similar protective benefits for humans. It also appears to promote healthy blood composition, circulation, anti-inflammatory properties, and various anti-aging and anti-oxidizing properties. It is also a good choice for weight loss, and it can even prevent various diseases like the cardio-vascular diseases, Alzheimer’s and cancer to a certain extent.
REMINERALIZING our SOILS for HEALTH and HUMANITY ~
Humans have absorbed much of the soils, plants trees, and animals. To assist in restoring humanity’s health as well as the whole interdependent chain of life, we can begin by re-mineralizing the world’s soils with natural mixtures of rock dust and returning increased amounts of organic matter back to soil. This rebuilds fertility and depth while enabling abundant production to meet our needs for pure natural foods, fiber, timber, bamboo, biomass energy like alcohol, bio-diesel, wood and hemp as well as beautiful landscapes, parks and wild lands.
Re-mineralizing the current forest lands, will greatly reduce widespread disease and insect and fire epidemics, enabling forests to again grow healthy and strong. This would make billons of tons of CO2 through renewed nourishment and vibrancy from soil microbes up to treetops while reversing soil acidification, allowing the soils life system to hold more moisture for year round availability and ameliorate the increasing tinderbox conditions in many malnourished forests.
Nearly two decades ago, a minimum of three quarters of global top soil was gone due to poor farming practices, climatic changes and good old disregard for the earth. The US suffered an 85% reduction, whereas Europe had the least erosion standing at 72%. Today, in 2010, the degree of degradation is higher. We are told to consume a high degree of sea vegetables in our diet, since most of that absent soil sits at the bottom of the world’s ocean feeding its fauna (animal life in a particular region or period). Beyond the aforementioned catastrophe, consuming our foods, that are harvested days to weeks earlier, often in faraway lands, leaving us very little to ingest in the way of healthy building elements. The only way to ensure we are consuming mineral and nutrient rich foods that increase our well-being, is to obtain them from organic matter sources, through local biological farming, chemical-free and organic supplementation, personal gardening and sprouting. This will also reduce planetary pollution.

An ionic mineral is an element that has a charge, either positive or negative. On the molecular level, this means the element has either one too many or too few electrons. This unstable ionic state allows the element to bond readily with water, making it possible for the body to absorb it. In this state, an element has specific positive or negative electrical signatures that cause a dynamic equilibrium to take place, allowing the body to facilitate changes to move nutrients to the areas that need them.
Every second of your life, your body relies on ionic minerals and trace elements to conduct and generate billions of tiny electrical impulses. Without these impulses, not a single muscle, including your heart, would be able to function. Your brain would not function and your cells would not be able to use osmosis to balance your water pressure to absorb nutrients. The absorption of minerals primarily takes place within the small intestines. As your food passes through, minerals are transferred into the blood stream through the walls of the intestinal tract. This process can only happen if the minerals are ionically, charged. As we age or the body suffers from disease, stomach acid declines, making the few minerals still available in our food supply unavailable to our bio systems.
