BIOAVAILABILITY OF METAL IONS
Humates comprise humic acid, fulvic acid and a great variety of beneficial or helpful microorganisms.
"The formation of complexes is an important aspect of the biological role of humic acids in regulating bioavailability of metal ions." Such as magnesium, calcium, and iron.
Fulvic acids are derived from humic acids. "Fulvic acids are poly-electrolytes and are unique colloids that diffuse easily through membranes whereas all other colloids do not."
Humates contain beneficial chemicals and microorganisms for animals. Peats and bog have been fed to animals for 100's of years.
