Dr. Tennant's Raw Materials
Dr. Tennant’s Raw Materials® Basic Formula (Capsules) & Liquid Basic Formula (Concentrate) combines concentrated Humic and Fulvic acids, nature's most powerful electrolytes. Dr. Tennant's Raw Materials® facilitates cell recharging and balancing to restore energy and vitality to promote optimal cell functions immediately. Fulvic and Humic acids are super-antioxidants that aggressively neutralize free radicals and bind heavy metals and other toxins to safely eliminate from the body system.
Practitioners often use Dr. Tennant's Raw Materials® to help jumpstart the natural detox functions of cells, especially in chronically ill patients. It is used to enhance individual protocols and improve the absorption and utility of nutrients.
Our humic and fulvic alternative health products exceed the benchmarks that define a superior-quality humic and fulvic acid nutritional health product. Some of these benchmarks include the product being highly energetic, electron-rich, and oxygenated — factors that are essential to support cellular energetics Every batch of Raw Materials Basic Formula is tested to ensure a high pH and ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential), which are all hallmarks of a highly energetic, oxygenated, and electron-rich product.
Humic and fulvic acids naturally carry a baseline of up to 74+ minerals, including all the trace minerals and elements. They also transport vitamins, amino acids, and phytonutrients throughout the body. These increase absorption and delivery of nutrients to the cell. They also provide electrons to charge cell membranes and help restore cellular energetics and membrane dynamics so nutrients flow in and wastes flow out.
Humic acid has many of the same cleansing and detoxification properties as fulvic acid. In addition, large humic acid molecules do not easily pass outside the intestine wall, which enables them to naturally provide important protection and support to the colon and intestines. Humic acid, and to a lesser extent fulvic acid, works in our intestines and colon to provide nutritional and digestive therapy.
Humic acid also provides intestinal cells with much-needed nutrients and helps to support a beneficial environment so cells can function at their best. Most importantly, it provides the building blocks for the production of digestive enzymes. Without an adequate amount of digestive enzymes, food is not digested properly and can become impacted and then putrefy. Bacteria, yeast, and fungus thrive in this environment and excrete toxins. All of these toxins from putrefied food and microbial secretions are absorbed back into the body as it tries to absorb missing vitamins and minerals, as well as water when we are not properly hydrated.
When plant material dies, they are broken down into their basic component by fungi and bacteria. This process is driven in part by a collection of complex organic molecules called humic acids. Fulvic acid is part of the humic group and includes the molecules comprising the smallest band of molecular sizes. Fulvic acids are also the most biologically active, allowing them to reach deep tissues. All the humic acids, including fulvic acid, are important and beneficial.
In nature and on farms that produce our food, humic and fulvic acids are naturally produced in healthy soils by beneficial microbes as organic material is broken down. Humic and fulvic acids start their journey in the soil, which will ultimately take them throughout the biosphere to support life everywhere they go. In the soil, humic and fulvic acids’ first task is to transform inorganic mineral rocks and mineral metals into their activated, ionic (water-soluble), “cell-ready” forms. This is the only mineral form that plants and humans can use. Humic and fulvic acids transport these minerals out of the soil and into the cells where they are needed in just about every metabolic process.
Humic and Fulvic Acids Are Nature’s Own Nutrient Transformation And Transportation System
Humic and fulvic acids make it possible for plants to receive the nutrition — especially minerals — they need to thrive and carry out a host of vital, life-giving functions. We rely on these microorganisms and the humic and fulvic acids they produce to be healthy and thrive as well. When we consume plants, humic and fulvic acids carry nutrients to our cells. Because fulvic acid nutrients are in their ionic “cell-ready” natural forms, our bodies have no difficulties using them immediately.
U.S. crop plants contain only a fraction – as much as 80% less – of the humic substances, fulvic acid, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytochemicals, and other nutrients they contained roughly a century ago (according to a U.S. Senate Report provided by the USDA – U.S. Department of Agriculture).
Fertilizers and pesticides used in modern agricultural practices destroy or severely stunt the growth of microorganisms that produce humic and fulvic acids in the soil.
When humic and fulvic acids are not in the soils, “cell-ready” minerals are not made available to plants, and subsequently are not in our food sources. This includes all common food sources: fruits, vegetables, dairy, and meats.
Even organic farming methods that protect the microorganisms deplete humic and fulvic acids, because these acids are used by plants faster than they can be replaced naturally. Some organic farmers, especially large growers, are now supplementing soils with organic agricultural humic compounds as part of a sustainable agricultural program.
Fulvic and humic acids in Raw Materials® Basic Formula are often called “the spark of life.” Our bodies work on supplied energy. Not only do our bodies require nutrients to make energy (humic and fulvic acid deliver these), they also require voltage at the cellular level in order to fuel biochemical processes that support life (humic and fulvic acids also provide this).
Humic and fulvic acids act like miniature batteries, supplying electrons to our cells. Cell membranes need an electrical potential (charge difference between the inside and outside of the cell) to maintain membrane, thus cellular, integrity.
Charges donated to the cell are also used in the cell’s mitochondria (cell powerhouse) for energy production. A cell membrane’s electrical potential also ensures nutrients get inside the cell to participate in most of the biochemical processes that support life. Wastes products naturally produced in these processes are eliminated from the cell easily and do not build up.

Important note: When starting a supplement containing concentrated humic acid, it is important to do so slowly. Humic acid is a powerful detoxifier, and intestinal detoxification symptoms are common if started too quickly. Most practitioners are aware of this and will advise you to start slowly. One teaspoon a day, depending on the individual, is generally advised for a week. A person can work up by adding a teaspoon a week until they reach an ounce, providing they don’t experience detox symptoms, such as diarrhea and nausea.
