According to the report "World Urbanization Prospects (UN revision 2016), 54% of the world's population lives in urban areas. By 2030, the world will have 41 mega-cities with more than 10 million inhabitants.
Taking into account the scarcity of water, long distances for transporting products from the field to the cities and excessive use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, we doubt that our next generation can obtain enough healthy and affordable food.
The introduction of the Urban Ponics growing systems is based on a common concern: the exponential growth of the world population. What goes up comes down... Our attempt is to slow down the decline of the curve when it comes down...
Urban Ponics provides a technical and economically viable growing system for small and medium sized Urban Farmers who live in multimillion cities where scarcity of water is becoming an issue.
Diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetics, Crown, rheumatics, psoriasis, ADHD, Alzheimer etcetera are all related to a dysfunctional immune system. Each immune system becomes weak if when hormonal and enzymatic processes in our bodies are disturbed or fail. Hormones en enzymes act like catalysts and metabolize the food that we eat into energy and cell growth. Catalyst use the minerals, trace elements and phytonutrients that are present in our food.
Poor nutrition means that some of these catalytic processes cannot take place because there are simply missing minerals. Our immune systems will fail and starts working against us. This makes us little by little weak, sick and ill. It explains the huge increase of autoimmune diseases.
NACAR is food for PLANTS: It is extracted from humic compounds (alkaloids, terpenes, tannins, saponins, plant enzymes, amino acids etc) and the 90+ minerals and trace elements that are present in pure sea salt. It provides a full spectrum of minerals, trace elements such as Iodine, Selene, Germanium, Zink, Iron and phytonutrients the plant needs for healthy growth.
PLANTS are food for HUMANS: The plant uses NACAR to build its strong immune system. He produces vitamins to stay healthy and uses the full spectrum of minerals to produce its own phytonutrients. The sense of mint and bitter taste of lettuce is meant to protect the plant against insects. Nice for us that is smells good...
Humans need to eat plants because minerals and phytonutrients are ingested in a BIO-ACTIVE way. It is better for humans to eat healthy plants than unhealthy plants. Unhealthy plants, that only contain 12 minerals and who have been treated with pesticides are less nutritious. Healthy plants are very nutritious and contain the full spectrum of minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients.
Nice detail and food for thought: The mineral composition of seawater, chlorophyll in the leaves of plants and blood plasma of humans shows something remarkable:
