There are several threads here on the forum about UP Aqua Shrimp Sand. Here's a link to UP's product page. Definitely buffers.

I wouldn't use it in a tank that had so much plant mass that a dry start was necessary. There are better substrates for plants on the market that cost a whole lot less.

A lot of people who sell the product would have you believe it's miracle dirt. While it's a great product, it's pretty easy to find cheaper alternatives.
