HuMagic is a rich, dark, natural humate, mined from a sole organic deposit of carbon-rich humate from both vegetative & marine compounds. This sole mine produces one of the finest humates on the market, rich in active, available humic and fulvic acids, organic carbon & natural trace elements. Used regularly HuMagic decreases your need for fertilizers as it enhances your soil's beneficial biology and ability to uptake nutrients.

Humic substances are the backbone of organic matter in soils and play an important role in soil fertility.
Physically: they function to improve soil structure, workability, porosity, water holding capacity, cation and anion exchange.
Biologically: they enhance the activities of beneficial micro-organisms, stimulating their growth and proliferation; increase plant cell energy and accelerate cell division; stimulate plant enzymes; increase root system development; and aid in photosynthesis.
Chemically: they chelate beneficial inorganic plant nutrients, especially iron and phosphorus into a stable soluble form available to plants; protect plants from harmful elements by making them insoluble.
Nutritionally: they improve water uptake by plants; enhance uptake of phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium and sulfur, benefitting micro-organisms that in turn benefit the plants. They act as catalysts for fertilizer to increase nutrition in plant tissues.
