What is LED Protect?
LED Protect consists of a solution containing every natural element that is available on planet Earth and a stabilized form of salicylic acid. These ingredients exist in bio-available form and are 100% directly absorbable by plants. Together these components give the plant all it needs to grow undisturbed and without stress.
As explained in the section above, the minerals in LED Protect exist in the form of fully absorbable fulvic acid molecules. These tiny but complex molecules guarantee that plants that are fed LED Protect absorb all the minerals that they need. Furthermore, the combined use of the fulvic acid in LED Protect with other nutrients makes sure that these nutrients are absorbed by plants more easily and effectively.
Co-enzymes & chemical reactions
The minerals in the product furthermore act as co-enzymes, which ensure that the enzymes in the ecosystem are activated. Enzymes in the ecosystem have a catalysing function, in the sense that they initiate chemical processes in the soil. The enzymes help break up molecules and thereby they accelerate metabolic processes. They increase the rate of (chemical) reaction by lowering the activation energy for certain molecules. This can speed up the chemical process up to many millions times.
Salicylic acid and plant response
The stabilized salicylic acid in LED Protect increases the resistance of the plant against both abiotic (e.g. extreme heat and cold) and biotic (e.g. spider mites and fungi) threats. This is mainly done through the systemic acquired resistance (SAR), which induces the highest state of readiness in plants.
Normally when a plant is attacked by a pathogen, it produces salicylic acid in order to warn the whole plant of the danger. The result is a highly active plant with enhanced functions, such as: improved photosynthesis, thicker cell walls, more effective ion uptake and increased vitamin C production.
