Without oxygen you can’t live, there is no debate there. The air we breathe provides us with valuable nutrients that may be absorbed readily into our bloodstreams through the lungs. In our exhalation, we discharge spent gases, typically carbon dioxide. What few people realize is that our breath is also a major mechanism in our body’s release of pollutants and metabolic wastes. Consider a phrase popularized by modern-day yogi Bikram Choudhury: “Control your breath, control your life.”

... in Growers

 

At its most basic level, growing involves humans helping along Mother Nature's process by providing everything our preferred crops needs to flourish. As hydroponic science has evolved, we’ve learned to supply plants with a full spectrum of nutrients—and not just mineral nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium and iron. Savvy growers know they get better results from crops when they supplement with carbohydrates, vitamins, amino acids and other important bioactive ingredients.

 

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.
