I wonder if this product is similar to KZ zeozym. Zeozym helped to break down extra mulm in the tank. It's like a white chalky powder that believe it or not smells like protein powder. It definitely helped clean up the biological leftovers when it gets skimmed out.

I do not think so. It does not make the tank water any clearer and it is not chalk for sure. It is probably just mud containing lots of minerals and some bacteria. Might also contain some dissolved kind of organic compounds that trigger a feeding response. But it's just an educated guess on my part.

Yeah Sawen is right. Zeozym has a enzyme base and promotes bacterial metabolism. But life source is pure mud and contain natural source of mineral, bacteria and a bit of organic compounds. It is more for increasing biological filtration and biodiversity in the system.

So does this product add different minerals to reef salts? In which case what is the difference? Would it be better to use this product over reef salts?

We do not know what exactly is in this mud. Recommended dose is small and I do not see how it could ever come close to reef salts.

Yes it seems to trigger a feeding response from corals for sure.
