Feeding Vita Blue B Vitamin Supplement To Your Plants Increases Growth, Potency, and Yield
B Vitamins are critical for many cellular processes within plants. Although plants can produce B vitamins themselves, fast growing plants that are pushed to their growth limits may not keep up with the need for these critical B vitamins.
B Vitamins are vital for energy production in plants and plants supplemented with Vita Blue have increased gains in final yield as well as flavor and potency.
Vita Blue contains humic and fulvic acids which aid in the uptake of B vitamins and other nutrients.
Vita Blue contains composted seaweed extract which contains growth promoting hormones and over 60 trace minerals that increase cell division and root and shoot growth.
Vita Blue has been shown to significantly increase plant terpene concentrations.
Vita Blue works in soil, and ALL hydroponic and aeroponic systems.
B Vitamins play many critical roles in plants and supplementing your plant's diet with B vitamins can enormously increase plant health and yield.
B1 (Thiamine Mononitrate)
Vitamin B1 is essential in the plant's use of carbohydrates as an energy source and for metabolizing amino acids. Plants can then use the extra energy during vegetative and flower phases to increase growth of leaves and terpenes. Vitamin B1 also facilitates plants use of phosphate resulting in increased flower growth. B1 also assists in root development enabling plants to absorb more water and nutrients, and makes plants more resistant to shock, transplanting, and cloning.
B-2 Riboflavin is involved in vital metabolic processes in the plant necessary for normal cell function, growth and energy production. Researchers with the Department of Plant Pathology at Cornell University demonstrated that Riboflavin induced expression of pathogenesis-related (PR) genes in the plants, suggesting its ability to trigger a signal transduction pathway that leads to systemic resistance of Tobacco Mosaic Virus and the plant disease Alternaria alternata.
Niacin is one of the most stable of the B vitamins owing to the fact that it is resistant to the effects of heat, light, air, acid and alkali. Vitamin B3 works with vitamin B1, riboflavin (vitamin B2), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), pantothenic acid, and biotin in plants to break down and convert the carbohydrates into energy. Niacinamide plays a key role in clearing the plant of toxic and harmful chemicals. Vitamin B3 is needed for the action of many enzymes in the plant. Those reactions include generating energy, creating certain hormones, processing genetic material (DNA), and the growth and maturation of cells.
B5 (Pantothenic acid)
Vitamin B5 is essential for fundamental cellular processes. B5 (Pantothenic acid) is an essential nutrient because it is a key component of coenzyme A (CoA) and Acyl-carrier protein (ACP). Plants convert pantothenic acid into a chemical called pantethine. Pantethine is a dimer of pantothenic acid and is the form which is used to make CoA. CoA is involved in many important reactions in the plant/body. It is critical to the functioning of the Krebs cycle. It helps to convert carbohydrates into energy. Vitamin B5 supports plant growth, normal plant function and reproduction. Pantothenic acid plays a key role in the production of energy, the catabolism of fatty acids and amino acids.
Vitamin B6 is essential for all living organisms. In plants, pyridoxine (vitamin B6) is a cofactor required by numerous enzymes. A study published in the Journal of plant Science establishes a critical role of vitamin B6 in plant development and stress tolerance and suggests that vitamin B6 may represent a new class of antioxidant in plants (Chen H, Xiong L.). Researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, have also discovered an unexpected role for this micronutrient in relation to nitrogen metabolism. Their results indicate that one of the B6 vitamers informs the plant of its content in ammonium, a basic nitrogen compound needed for the biosynthesis of various molecules essential for life, such as proteins. Vitamin B6 could be used to ascertain the nitrogen status of plants and eventually prevent the overuse of nitrogen-containing fertilizers. Researchers recently published results in the Middle East Journal of Applied Sciences that concluded vitamin B6 induced a significant promotive effect on growth, photosynthetic pigments and productivity in plants. Vitamin B6 induced increased plant height, number of leaves/plant, total leaf area/plant, shoot dry weight/plant, chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, and carotenoids over the control group. (Rania M. A. Nassar, Sally A. Arafa and S. Farouk).
Folic Acid (B9)
Folic acid, also called vitamin B9, is very beneficial for plant growth. Folic acid essentially helps plants to grow more heavily and healthily. It enables plants to regulate their DNA functions. This acid basically helps a plant to produce DNA, which is a nucleic acid that possesses an organism's genetic information. Folic acid additionally enables plants to produce RNA, a nucleic acid that carries information from DNA to plant cell structures known as ribosomes and helps a plant synthesize proteins. Plants need proteins to build up the structures in their cells. Regulating a plant's metabolic functions is another important contribution of folic acid. Folic acid enables plants to metabolize carbohydrates. Because folic acid exists in plants but decomposes rapidly when exposed to strong light, giving plants additional folic acid during the growing process is recommended.
