  • Arcadia Supplements, LLC

    https://arcadiasupplements.com

    Arcadia Supplements, LLC, formulates and distributes fulvic-mineral-based health and wellness products.

This fulvic acid in these deposits came from massive amounts of vegetation and its further decomposition by microbes. Fulvic acid is then a naturally occurring organic substance that comes entirely from microbial action on decomposing plants, plants themselves, or ancient deposits of plant origin.
