American Lava’s LavaMaxx crushed lava is a high-energy soil amendment that recharges soil to good health.  By increasing the water holding capacity and rising it’s paramagnetism, LavaMaxx is essential for improving soil.  It offers a physical improvement to the soil that moves unhealthy, unbalanced soil towards balance.  LavaMaxx makes the soil’s nutrients more readily available to plant roots and provides increased aeration and porosity to the soil.  The angular, porous pieces of crushed lava hold and exchange nutrients efficiently and attract and redistribute energy in the soil.  Use it in potting soil,  germination media, bed preparation, farms, ranches, gardens and landscapes.
