About the Algae

The origin of the name Lithothamnium comes from the Greek litho, which means stone and thamnion, a small tree. Those algae may live from 10 to 15 years, growing from 0.3 to 3 mm per year (LEE, 1999).

Lithothamnium is a gender of marine algae that is present in big colonies in the open sea and grows in depths of up to 30 meters. It is made up by more than 40 balanced nutrients, with high solubility and availability to the living beings.

The marine algae Lithothamnium has been used for decades in several countries for animal and vegetable nutrition. In addition to nurturing, they have high reactivity and presence of mineral and organic components, providing a favorable condition to the microbial life.

Technology

The extraction of the raw material is environmentally-friendly. The process is fully conscious and projected in a way that the quantity of sediments removed is compatible with the natural replacement, which makes it environmentally sustainable.

The processing is made of drying, grinding, granulation, packaging and storage, complying with the international standards of quality and safety certifications.

A 100% natural product and with no alterations and/or inclusions during the industrialization process, with the IBD Certification for its use in the organic agriculture.

Equatorial region: Environmental conditions favorable to the growth and fragmentation of the algae.

Natural Drying: Low thermal impact, preserving all the organic wealth of the algae.

MAIN BENEFITS OF THE LITHOTHAMNIUM

Its amino acids to the plants

  • CHELATING FUNCTION

    Higher absorbed quantity and better efficiency in the transport and assimilation of nutrients by the vegetable cells.

  • IT STRENGTHENS THE DEFENSE MECHANISM OF THE PLANTS

    Hydric defficiency, low temperatures, intoxication and attack of plagues.

  • INCREASES THE EMISSION OF RADICELS

    In annual plants, it increases the harvest period. In perennial plants, they are less liable to decline.

  • AMINO ACIDS SYNTHETIZE SOME HORMONES

    It stimulates the growth; it accelerates maturation and increases productivity.

Its amino acids to the animals

  • IMMUNOSTIMULANT

    Activation of the cells of the immunological system, the macrophages, immune modulatory effect.

  • ADSORBED MINERALS

    It is up to 8 x more bio available than the inorganic mineral sources.

  • DIGESTIBILITY E FOOD CONVERSION

    It maximizes the absorption of phosphorus, it promotes bone formation.

  • PH STABILIZER

    Lithonutri has a more effective action than the carbonates of inorganic origins, favoring the decrease of thermal stress.
