- Lake mud contains natural humic complex, like humic, fulvic and amino acids, which significantly improves soil structure and stimulate the growth of plants.
- Lake mud is 15-20 times more effective than any organic fertilizer.
- Lake mud creates humus in soil types that have a low concentration of natural materials.
- Specific microorganisms in sapropel are able to revive "dead ground" and to give it highly fertile properties by forming humus.
- Freshly extracted sapropel contains active microorganisms, which promote intensive plant growth.
- Many causative agents of plant diseases are often distributed through organic fertilizers, but there are no pathogenic organisms in freshly extracted sapropel.
Lake mud contains many biologically active substances and microelements. It is rich in natural vitamins, contains carotene (provitamin A), B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, E, C, D, P, and folic acid. Sapropel contains the largest quantity of amino acids (histidine, glutamic acid, glycine, valine, arginine, aspartic acid, alanine, serine, leucine, isoleucine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, lysine, methionine, threonine, cystine), enzymes (catalase, peroxidase, reductase, protease). Sapropel is rich in various microelements (Co, Mn, Cu, B, Zn, I, Br, Mo, V, Cr, Be, Ni, Ag, Sn, Pb, As, Ba, Sr, Ti).
