FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE ENZYMES?

Enzymes are proteins, made up of amino acids that act as catalysts – they facilitate, energize, and speed up biochemical reactions. In fact, the rate of reaction can be several million times faster than if left un-catalyzed! An extreme example is orotidine 5′-phosphate decarboxylase, which allows a reaction that would otherwise take millions of years to occur in milliseconds.

ARE ENZYMES ALIVE

Enzymes are not alive nor are they consumed when they catalyze a biochemical reaction. When the biochemical reaction is over, the enzyme is ready to bond to another substrate unit again. Given the right conditions, the enzyme can catalyze the same reaction time and time again.

WHAT ARE ENZYMES USED FOR?

Enzymes are used in various industries to make some of your favorite things like: tastier beer, softer cloths, better cheeses and juices, more efficient detergents etc.

HOW DO ENZYMES WORK?

Enzymes are highly specific. Only when the right enzyme finds the right substrate, does a biochemical reaction occur. This precise interaction means you never have to worry about undesirable effects. For instance, when cellulase breaks down cellulose into simple sugars, you can be sure that is all that will happen. No other material or process will be altered or affected. This is why it is important to have the right enzyme formula like Hygrozyme Concentrate designed specifically to get rid of the undesirable content without affecting the good.

SHOULD I USE HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE DURING A FLUSH?

Yes, you can use Hygrozyme Concentrate to flush your system. Mix 0.4 – 0.5 mL of Hygrozyme Concentrate per liter of water and flush your system. Stop using Hygrozyme Concentrate one week prior to harvest.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HYGROZME CONCENTRATE?

Depends on your nutrient or fertilizer program. We recommend using Hygrozyme Concentrate with every watering or nutrient change out. If you are adding beneficial microbials to your system, you have the option to add less beneficial microbials with every watering, as Hygrozyme Concentrate supports the growth of your beneficials.

WHAT GROWING MEDIA CAN I USE HYGROZYME CONENTRATE IN?

You can use Hygrozyme Concentrate in all soil and soilless medias. We do not recommend the use of Hygrozyme Concentrate in Aquaponics systems.

CAN I USE H2O2 WITH HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE

You can use Hygrozyme Concentrate in all soil and soilless medias. We do not recommend the use of Hygrozyme Concentrate in Aquaponics systems.

CAN I USE BENEFICIALS WITH HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

Yes, you can use beneficial microbials with Hygrozyme Concentrate. Hygrozyme Concentrate converts dead root matter into simple sugars which stimulate microbial growth (microbials consume simple sugars as carbon source for their growth).

WHATS THE BEST CONDITIONS TO STORE HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

To preserve the shelf life and potency of the enzymes in Hygrozyme Concentrate, the best place to store Hygrozyme Concentrate is away from direct sunlight in a cool place. Keep below 90 °F /32°C for storage.

HOW MANY ENZYMES ARE IN HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

Hygrozyme Concentrate contains an industry leading concentration of 4 core enzymes: 5,000 U/mL Cellulase, 500 U/mL Xylanase, 375 U/mL Hemicellulase and 200 U/mL beta-Glucanase, which are also complemented by a unique blend of additional hydrolytic enzymes to assist in the effective breakdown of dead root matter.

CAN I USE HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE DURING ANY GROWTH STAGE

Yes, it is recommended that you use Hygrozyme Concentrate with every growth stage. However, we recommended that you flush and only feed your plants water on the last week before harvest.

DOES HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE CURE DISEASE?

No, Hygrozyme Concentrate does not cure disease.

CAN AIR PUMPS CAUSE ENZYME SHEARING IN HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

No, air pump will NOT cause enzyme shearing.

CAN I USE OTHER ENZYME FORMULAS WITH HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

Yes. But since Hygrozyme Concentrate is a complete multi-enzyme blend, no additional enzymatic products are needed.

CAN I USE OTHER ENZYME FORMULAS WITH HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

Yes. But since Hygrozyme Concentrate is a complete multi-enzyme blend, no additional enzymatic products are needed.

WHAT OTHER ADDITIVES CAN I USE WITH HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

Hygrozyme Concentrate is compatible with all nutrient and supplement programs.

CAN I USE HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE PAST IT'S 2 YEAR SHELF-LIFE?

Yes, you can use Hygrozyme Concentrate past the 2-year shelf life however for best results, we recommend Hygrozyme Concentrate to be used within 2 years from the date of manufacture. Hygrozyme Concentrate is designed to retain the activity of its highly effective enzyme blend. SIPCO guarantees the enzyme activities in Hygrozyme Concentrate to be stable for two years, however if kept in appropriate storage conditions, the enzymes will still be active past the 2-year shelf life. If you plan to use Hygrozyme Concentrate beyond the 2-year shelf life, continue with recommended usage instructions on the product label. DO NOT increase dosage.

DOES HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE KILL BENEFICIAL MICROBIALS?

Enzymes, unlike any other catalyst, are highly substrate specific and hence do not cause undesirable effects.

DO I JUST NEED TO ADD WATER TO HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

No, you do not need to dilute Hygrozyme Concentrate. Be sure to you use Hygrozyme Concentrate at a much lower dosage application; 1.5 mL per 1 gallon of water.

ISN'T HYGROZYME ALREADY A CONCENTRATED FORUMLA ALREADY? WHY SHOULD I USE HYGROZYME CONCENTRATE?

A little truly goes a long way, we have heard growers demands to shipping less liquid and therefore Have developed a 5 X concentrated formula allowing for less shipping and covering 5 X more applications for the grower.
