is it a good idea to use multi-MINERAL sup. in substrate

there are some cheap multimineral supplement products for human consumption on the market. They contain only minerals which are required for plant growth. I wonder why dont we just use them , they are cheaper then commercial plant fertilizers and richer.

Here are ingredients of one of them.

Vitamin D (as Cholecalciferol) 400.00 IU 100%

Calcium (as Calcium Carbonate) 1000.00 mg 100%

Iron (as Hydrolyzed Protein Chelate) 18.00 mg 100%

Iodine (as Kelp) 150.00 mcg 100%

Magnesium (as Magnesium Oxide) 500.00 mg 125%

Zinc (as Hydrolyzed Protein Chelate) 22.50 mg 150%

Copper (as Hydrolyzed Protein Chelate) 3.00 mg 150%

Manganese (as Hydrolyzed Protein Chelate) 10.00 mg 500%

Chromium (as Hydrolyzed Protein Chelate) 100.00 mcg 83%

Chloride (as Potassium Chloride) 90.00 mg 3%

Potassium (as Potassium Chloride) 95.00 mg 3%

Only vitamin d here is useless rest are a nice boost to plant nutritien. Surely they will increase water GH however if we menage to use tiny amounts and if we have a good lighting , co2 system too we should get a nice crop
