If it doesn’t say IntelliBond, it isn’t!

If it doesn’t say IntelliBond, then it isn’t IntelliBond: This article provides an overview of what makes IntelliBond such a unique, strong and dependable source of Copper, Manganese and Zinc in animal feed. It also draws attention to the indispensable role these trace minerals play in the fertility, growth and health of animals. And yet, when they are provided in the form of IntelliBond they only comprise approximately 0,75% of the cost of a high performance feed. Nutritional integrity that is not worth compromising.

Trace Mineral Absorption in Ruminants

Trace Mineral Absorption in Ruminants

One of the most important yet misunderstood facts regarding trace mineral absorption is that inorganic, organic and hydroxy sources of Zn, Cu and Mn are all absorbed using similar mechanisms, receptors and transporters, in the small intestine.
The trace mineral source or bond, whether organic or inorganic is purely the vehicle to deliver the metal in the duodenum where it MUST DISSOCIATE to release the ionic metal, which is then actively transported by specific metal transporters, across the intestinal wall and into the blood stream. This is an extremely important mechanism and regulatory step to ensure optimised mineral HOMEOSTASIS. Therefore, any other mechanism of absorption will clearly obstruct HOMEOSTASIS. This is why IntelliBond’s unique characteristics make it the ideal source of Copper, Manganese and Zinc.

Why The Coffee?

Why The Coffee?

You may be wondering what a bag of coffee has to do with animal nutrition! It’s an appeal to your senses to reinforce the point that when it comes to your animals well-being (as with your own) ‘you get out as much as you put in.’ In the case of your animals we recommend IntelliBond, and for you, coffee!

The Main Characteristics That Makes IntelliBond Unique

The Main Characteristics That Makes IntelliBond Unique

IntelliBond® trace minerals are an ideal source of trace mineral especially because of the low water and solubility of IntelliBond® crystals. This increases palatability and limits the risk of adverse reactions with antagonists, increases feed stability, improves digestion, and provides a bioavailable, reliable, and predictable supply of trace minerals to your animals.
