Trace Minerals, the Missing Nutrient in Our Soils, Plants and Bodies!

Here is a good video that clearly explains the importance of trace minerals, and why they are deficient in most foods. Aquaponics can help grow mineral rich foods because it is easy (and cost effective) to supplement the aquaponics system with the minerals that the plants need to become nutrient dense and make trace minerals bio-available for our bodies.

Commonly used supplements that are safe for both the fish and the plants in an aquaponics system include Maxicrop – powder or liquid seaweed plus iron; Azomite, Elemite, Glacial Rock Dust and other rock dusts and powders, and other volcanic ash products.
