Aug 31, 2021

What is 5-aminolevulinic Acid 5-ALA Powder?

5-aminolevulinic acid hydrochloride (5-ALA), an endogenous non-proteinogenic amino acid, is the first compound in the porphyrin synthesis pathway, the pathway that leads to heme in mammals, as well as chlorophyll in plants.

Agricultural grade 5-ALA is pollution-free, natural and can easily degredate in the outside for being a by-product of metabolism in plants, animals and humans. 

5-ALA (5)

The Agricultural Applications Of 5-ALA Powder

Plant growth regulator

* To regulate the synthesis of chlorophyll.

* To improve the stability of chlorophyll and light capture system 

* To improve photosynthetic efficiency and promote photosynthesis.

* To promote plant tissue differentiation, inhibition in the dark breathing, expansion stomata and other basic physiological activity.

Fruit Colorant
* By promoting the formation of anthocyanins, 5-ALA can promote the coloring of apples, dates and other fruits

* Fruits processed by 5-ALA can matrue in advance, with the content of titratable acids being much lower.  

Increase Stress Resistance for Plants
5-ALA was found to increase salt tolerance in cotton. The study demonstrated that cotton seedlings treated with ALA were able to grow in soil containing 1.5 % (w/w) NaCl, and Na+ uptake by the plants was suppressed by 5-ALA application. 

Pollution-free Insecticide

How does it work?

* 5-ALA can cause biochemical metabolism imbalance of  housefly, cockroaches and other pests, then make the pest convulsions to death.

* 5-ALA·HCL could induce a massive accumulation of PPIX, which caused insect death in darkness or light.

Animal Feeds
* higher feed conversion rate
* promote the absortion of Fe+
* improve immunity
* increase lean meat percentage
