Zinpro Corporation has produced an animated video called Take the Proven Path to educate the farming industry about the difference in trace mineral absorption and metabolism and how its trace minerals are efficiently absorbed and utilised by the animal.
The video illustrates that in order to be utilised efficiently by an animal, trace minerals need to be water-soluble, stable to stomach pH, absorbable and metabolically available.
Zinpro’s performance trace minerals are bonded to amino acids which to allow the minerals to follow an alternative pathway via amino acid transporters for uptake from the small intestine into the intestinal cells, allowing for utilisation of both the inorganic transporters and the amino acid transporters, as well as two different metabolic pathways post-absorption. The overall effect is to maximise animal performance, wellness and hence profitability in a more sustainable way.
Dr Peter Stark, director of product development, Zinpro Corporation says that In a world with increasing consumer demands and animal nutrition requirements, animal producers need to maintain a profitable operation while keeping sustainability and animal wellness at the forefront: “Performance trace minerals are scientifically proven to enhance every aspect of animal performance and wellness more than inorganic trace minerals and other sources of organic trace minerals — while producing less waste and improving sustainability.”
