purigen and Chemi-pure

Hi, Ive been hearing a lot of talk about Purigen and Chemi-pure filter medium, but Im thinking it wouldnt be of use in a planted tank when dosing ferts.

Wouldnt these super filter absorbants just remove all the trace elements that the plants need?

Many folks like Purigen. I clears up the water really well and it only has a minor impact on traces. Some folks have claimed that it removes some of the nitrates. I don't know anything about the other product.
