Minerals need to be chelated, bound to a protein molecule, to be bio-available. (Mineral assimilation without chelation is only about 10%.) This makes our product highly assimilative. When our humates (fulvic and humic acid dry mixes) are exposed in the system the sulfide, sulfur compounds, hydrogen, carboxylic acids, amines react with moisture, hydrolyzes. These are then in ideal natural form to be absorbed and interact with living cells.
