    I never could find a solid scientific answer for their claims. They use Carey Reams as their foundation. The guy that developed the product was an actual student of Reams. I always heard them claim it’s the energy of an uncoupled calcium ion micronized with nothing attached to it, so it is extremely active at the atomic level. The results we saw were increased water penetration and soil flocculation using a penetrometer. They claimed you would see an increase in plant tissue Ca because it had the energy to move otherwise locked up Ca already in the soil into the plant along with the grams of Ca in the application (usually 90 grams per acre but we did several 1 lb per acre applications). I never saw plant tissue increases in Ca with it.
