AZOMITE is a 100% naturally-derived feed additive and soil re-mineralizer mined in Sanpete County, Utah. This unique deposit was formed by a natural volcanic eruption where the volcanic ash was deposited into an ancient seabed, which was pushed to the surface by tectonic activity. The mineral deposit is now a series of pink hogbacks (hills) where AZOMITE is mined exclusively by AZOMITE Mineral Products, Inc.
AZOMITE contains a wide array of over 70 naturally occurring trace elements. Organic growers recognizes AZOMITE as a soil re-mineralizing product. Scientific and agricultural trials have been conducted in many countries, including the U.S., Brazil, Mexico, Ecuador, China, Indonesia and Vietnam resulting in increased yields, survivability, and economic benefits.
AZOMITE supports the vitality of soil and living organisms by providing trace elements that are often not readily available through soil and food sources. There is global concern about soils becoming depleted of minerals. Soil management programs that include trace mineral supplementation grow more crops with higher nutritional value. AZOMITE offers an organic, sustainable solution by adding trace minerals to depleted soils, as well as to the actual crops. Minerals improve pest and disease resistance, while increasing capacity to withstand drought and temperature fluctuations, ultimately improving the nutrient content and yields of the food supply.
