Many nutrient elements have been depleted from soils worldwide due to weathering, leaching, and depletion from decades of continuous agricultural production and AZOMITE® been reported to replenish these nutrients. Technically, AZOMITE is a highly mineralized complex silica ore (Hydrated Sodium Calcium Aluminosilicate or HSCAS), mined in Utah from an ancient deposit left by a volcanic eruption that filled a small seabed an estimated 30 million years ago.
According to research and customer reports, plants grown with AZOMITE produce more and larger fruits and vegetables per plant that are better tasting — with evidence of improved nutritional benefits. AZOMITE has shown these positive results in a wide variety of plants in both field and laboratory.
