Why Fulvic Calmag and not another brand? Well, it is cheaper than Botanicare's Calmag. And it is tailored to work with the Perfect Nutrient feeding chart.
Most importantly, is how Fulvic Calmag is delivered to your plants. It is the only Calmag that uses fulvic acid to chelate and make calcium and magnesium easily available to your plants. Others use EDTA or DTPA, which are synthetic chelates. They do work, but what they do not do is penetrate into the plant's cells.
EDTA and DTPA are too large to enter the plant's cells. Because fulvic acid can enter plant's cells, this makes it easy for the plant to use the calcium and magnesium and easily transport it where it is needed.
Other calmags cannot do that. They only make it easy for the plant to uptake calcium and magnesium, something fulvic acid also does well.
Fulvic Acid has many other benefits besides making nutrients easily available to your plants and easy transportation within the plant. Just to name a few.
- Studies have shown that fulvic acid is able to enhance seed germination and stimulate the metabolisms of plants.
- Enhance photosynthesis.
- Fulvic acid can detoxify pollutants in the soil by absorbing toxins. This reduces soil-life damage and can also aid in the creation of fertile new soils.
EDTA and DTPA in most all calmag supplements are synthetic and remain in the soil, which is not good for organic gardening. Fulvic Calmag will actually benefit your soil over time.
