The Science Behind It
Water bodies have stress from both external and internal sources. Excessive rains or draught combined with ongoing use of algaecides and herbicides depletes the microbial communities that are fundamental to nutrient removal in water bodies. This imbalance in the ecosystem leads to elevated nutrient issues and can result in excessive aquatic plant growth, continuing algal blooms, and HABs.
Envira3 was formulated through years of research by obtaining samples from lakes and ponds across the United States when water temperatures were mild. The natural microbial communities in the samples were analyzed to understand population densities and specific organisms that were depleted by stresses. This research is how Naturalake Biosciences was able to create a probiotic that supplements natural organisms and supports indigenous organisms that are functional and native to that geography. Envira3 is more than simple additions of beneficial bacteria. It is a scientifically formulated probiotic that works in harmony with the microbial communities that play key roles in nitrogen and phosphorus uptake. Real science. Real Results.
