Nutrients Absorption: Essential Elements For Your Plants' Health and Yours, Too!

It's not just the nutrients, it's how well you and your plants absorb them. It's not just the nutrients, it's how well you and your plants absorb them.

 

Having the right nutrients in our bodies and in our crops means we have a much higher potential to be healthy. When working hard, whether to grow muscles or flowers and fruits, people and plants tend to use vital nutrients as building blocks at a greater rate. However, just because we consume more nutrients doesn’t mean our bodies or plants are going to get what they need when they need it. Timing is everything, so if nutrients are absorbed or transported more slowly than they are being used, you will see a deficiency even though the nutrients may be present. Sometimes nutrients alone aren’t enough.

A great example of this is seen in the complex vitamins and mineral supplements for sale at your local health store. Let’s look at iron—on its own, this essential element is very hard for our bodies to absorb through the wall of the large intestine, where we take in nutrients. This is because of the electrical charge iron carries. Our bodies actually alter iron on a molecular level, changing the charge so it is more conducive to human absorption.

In modern times, there are findings that suggest the substances found within the humate family may play a role in treating serious diseases like HIV and cancer.

The magical substances that rearrange the very atoms of the iron are called fulvates and humates. As a grower, you have probably heard of these naturally occurring substances and know that they improve plant growth and the effectiveness of crop feedings. In the most basic terms, fulvates are associated with how nutrients move into and through various plant parts. Humates, which on a molecular level are the heavier faction from the same shared family, are more associated with how nutrients move from particle to particle in soil, essentially conditioning the growing medium. But few growers realize the benefits that humates have in human-related products as well.

Fulvates and humates aren’t exactly new to human health. These substances are an essential part of the Hindu practice known as ayurvedic medicine, where they are known as shaljit. Although ancient Hindus probably weren’t aware of the science of fulvates and humates, shaljit has long been believed to contribute to a long and healthy life. In modern times, there are findings that suggest the substances found within the humate family may play a role in treating serious diseases like HIV and cancer.

It seems we are only beginning to unlock the secrets extracted from fossilized deposits of leonardite that contain humic and fulvic molecules. These substances are from the time of the dinosaurs, when our world, our climate and life itself was very different. So the next time you feed your plants or improve your health, consider that it might be with the help of organic matter from the time of the dinosaurs.
