Is Shilajit safe and good for your pets or plants (and environment)?
Knowing about the benefits of Shilajit for a human body, many ask this quesition – they do care either about their pets or they are just very interested in gardening. Is it safe for the environment? Why are these questions? It is is rather simple and common-sense: if Shilajit helps humans, will it be beneficial for other living beings?
And in fact, the answer is positive. As we all know, Shilajit is a real treasure when it comes to elements and trace minerals. But most important are the humic components of this compound: fulvic and humic acids.
As the recent researches of SoilBiotics ® (soilbiotics.com) show, the humic acids (both are of this type – fulvic and humic), are extremely important for the soil. Current scientific studies also confirm that the fertility of soil is determined to a very large extent by the content of humic acids.
Humic acids are an excellent natural and organic way to provide plants and soil with a concentrated dose of essential nutrients, vitamins and trace elements. Compared to other organic products, they enhance plant growth (biomass production) and fertility of the soil.
Humic acids chelate nutrient compounds, especially iron, in the soil to a form suitable for plant utilization. Thus, the nutrient supply of plants is optimized. Increases up to 70% in yield, accompanied by a reduction up to 30% in the use of fertilizers and pesticides, as well as better and healthier growth of green grass, ornamentals, agricultural crops and woods can be attained with the regular application of first-quality humic acids. Furthermore, water holding capacity of soils is increased considerably, which means that the use of water can be reduced substantially.
The most important feature of humic acids lies in their ability to bind insoluble metal ions, oxides and hydroxides, and to release them slowly and continually to plants when required. Due to these properties, humic acids are known to produce three types of effects: physical, chemical and biological.

Humic acids physically modify the structure of the soil, with benefits such as:
- Improved structure of soil: Prevents high water and nutrient losses in light, sandy soils, simultaneously converting them into fruitful soils by way of decomposition. In heavy and compact soils, aeration of soil and water retention is improved; cultivation measures are facilitated.- Prevents soil cracking, surface water runoff and soil erosion by increasing the ability of colloids to combine. - Helps the soil loosen and crumble, and thus increases aeration of soil as well as soil workability. - Increases water holding capacity of soil and thus helps resist drought. - Darkens the color of the soil and thus helps absorption of the sun’s energy.
Humic acids chemically change the fixation properties of the soil, with benefits such as:
- Neutralizes both acid and alkaline soils; regulates the pH-value of soils. - Improves and optimizes the uptake of nutrients and water by plants. - Increases buffering properties of soil. - Acts as natural chelator for metal ions under alkaline conditions and promote their uptake by the roots. - Becomes rich in both organic and mineral substances essential to plant growth. - Retains water soluble inorganic fertilizers in the root zones and reduces leaching. - Possesses extremely high cation-exchange capacities. - Promotes the conversion of nutrient elements (N, P, K + Fe, Zn and other trace elements) into forms available to plants. - Enhances the uptake of nitrogen by plants. - Reduces the reaction of phosphorus with Ca, Fe, Mg and Al and liberates it into a form that is available and beneficial to plants.The productivity of particular mineral fertilizers is increased considerably. - Liberates carbon dioxide from soil calcium carbonate and enables its use in photosynthesis. - Helps to eliminate chlorosis due to iron deficiency in plants. Reduces the availability of toxic substances in soils.
Humic acids biologically stimulate the plant and the activities of micro-organisms. Stimulates plant enzymes and increase their production.
- Acts as an organic catalyst in many biological processes. - Stimulates growth and proliferation of desirable micro-organisms in soil - Enhances plant’s natural resistance against diseases and pests. - Stimulates root growth, especially vertically and enable better uptake of nutrients. - Increases root respiration and root formation. - Promotes the development of chlorophyll, sugars and amino acids in plants and aid in photosynthesis. - Increases vitamin and mineral content of plants. - Thickens the cell walls in fruits and prolongs storage time. - Increases germination and viability of seeds. - Stimulates plant growth (higher biomass production) by accelerating cell division, increasing the rate of development in root systems and increasing the yield of dry matter. Increases the quality of yields; improves their physical appearance and nutritional value.
The ecological benefits of humic acids are diverse and present profitable and effective solutions for environmental problems and the preservation of the environment.

Energy depletion is a quite common situation that a lot of people find themselves in; you wake up every day feeling exhausted even though you’ve had plenty of sleep during the night.
