1.  WHY USE SEA MINERALS?

2.  WHICH SEA MINERAL PRODUCT IS RIGHT
     FOR YOUR GARDEN?

Sea Minerals are ideal for returning micronutrients to the soil, the plant, and to livestock.  Why?  Because the Ocean contains all 90 naturally occurring elements on the Periodic Chart of Elements, which includes 76 minerals.  But are all of these minerals needed by plants and animals?  Nobody really knows just which minerals that plants and animals need.  It is interesting that plant sap and human blood plasma have all of these minerals, and almost in perfect proportion to what is found in the ocean.  Every few years, science discovers that plants need another one of these minerals that before was deemed unnecessary.  In Europe, they now consider 45 minerals as being beneficial to plants.  In the USA, so far only about 20 are recognized, but the number is growing.  For instance, it has been discovered by Richard Olree that many miscarriages of male babies can be attributed to a lack of trace amounts of arsenic.

Enzymes Need Minerals.  Sea mineral liquid fertilizer contains the elemental minerals that are needed as building blocks to produce enzymes.  Every enzyme centers around one or more minerals, and if these minerals are missing, the enzyme is absent or compromised.  There are so many enzymes that are necessary to life, and science has only started to understand them, plus the minerals they require.  When a plant or animal has available sea mineral liquid salt fertilizer has the complete buffet of elemental minerals at its service.  Having the minerals it needs to produce enzymes results in healthier, robust plants, resulting in healthier animals.

Plants Need Minerals to Make Vitamins.  A 2 year study was done in Montana on wheat using sea minerals.  Each year, samples of wheat grown with and without the liquid sea minerals was sent to a lab for analysis.  Lab reports revealed that vitamin content in the wheat was anywhere from 11% to 35% higher in wheat treated with the sea minerals.  What caused the higher vitamin content?  Every vitamin keys on one or more minerals.  When sea minerals are fed to plants, plants have the nutrients they need for better vitamin production.

Four Sea Mineral Products Are Available.

Which One is Right for You? 

There are a number of companies selling sea mineral fertilizer products.  Do each of these products work?  Yes they do.  A product called Ocean Solution is produced by taking a ship out to sea, collecting ocean water, and through a proprietary process concentrating it, yet retaining all of the original minerals in the ocean water (including all the sodium chloride).  For application, this product is diluted 100 to 1 with water and sprayed on the leaf of the plant.  Because it supplies the full spectrum of sea minerals, plants have micronutrients they need, resulting in a more nutritious plant which has a stronger defense against disease and insect invasion. 

Another company sells sea mineral solids, called Sea-90.  They collect the solids that are left behind when ocean water is evaporated all the way down to a solid.  Once again, since this product has all the minerals from the ocean, it supplies plants with all the trace minerals of the ocean, with all the accompanying benefits.  This product is especially good where soil is low in sodium, since it is 90% sodium chloride.  It also works well as a free choice mineral to be fed to cattle.  Humans receive this same advantage when they use Celtic Sea Salt instead of table salt (NaCl).  You get the taste of salt, but with all the goodness of the other minerals present in the ocean.

A third company sells sea mineral liquid fertilizer under the name C-GRO.  This product is a liquid product made with part ocean water and part river inlet water.  It is lower in sodium than Ocean Solution or Sea-90.  Its claim to fame is its biological content, but it also supplies needed sea minerals to soil and plant.

A fourth company sells a very dense liquid sea mineral concentrate.  If you have soil that is high in sodium, you may want to consider Ocean Trace, a low sodium, liquid sea mineral fertilizer in which 100 gallons of ocean water is evaporated down to 1 gallon (concentrated 100 times).  In the process of evaporation, 99% of the sodium and 90% of the Chloride solidifies, making the liquid that remains very low in sodium chloride.  Salt (NaCl) is a sterilizer, so having a concentrated sea mineral minus most of the salt can be a very good thing.  Large amounts of sodium are toxic to plants.  With just a single foliar application, the nutrients from up to 50 gallons of ocean water may be applied per acre without hurting the plant.  It can be applied to the soil, used with an irrigation drip line, or applied to the leaves in foliar applications.  This product may also be given to livestock in their drinking water.  A form of this product, Ionic Sea Minerals, is available for human consumption.

 

Whichever sea mineral product you choose, the fact that you are applying sea minerals makes you a winner.  Your plants get the full range of micronutrients from the ocean, not just basic Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium as in most chemical fertilizers.  Plants fed with sea minerals are more nutritious, full of enzymes and vitamins, and contribute to the betterment of mankind.
