Innovative organic product that helps plants rapidly synthesize and eliminate heavy metals absorbed at the same time with the nutrients. It stimulates photosynthesis, helps fixating the nitrogen from the air and plays a protective antifungal role for the plants.
The Heavy Metal effervescent tablet is especially recommended for crops in organic certification regime.
The risks of heavy metal poisoning
The high content of heavy metals means that there is a direct risk of contaminating the soil affecting plants that absorbe the heavy metals from the soil, the animals that eat the plants and humans also. When not treated efficiently, the heavy metal toxicity can determine morbidity and mortality.
The periodic table of elements has 118 chemical elements, from which 80 are considered metals, aproximately 30 of them are toxic to human beings. These are the heavy metals, which have high density and atomic weight, with an atomic number higher than 20.
Some heavy metals are essential in various biochemical processes (Co, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Ni, V şi Zn). In small quantities, they are necessary for the organism, but become toxic in large quantities. Other heavy metals (Pb, Cd, Hg și Ca) do not have any benefit for the organisms and are considered „main threats” because they are harmful for both plants and animals.
