Optimin

Trace minerals are essential to maintain fertility, health and immunity. Optimin organic minerals are protected and easily absorbed, minimising risk of malnutrition. Optimin supports the animal to have an optimal mineral status contributing to health and improved performance. A superior trace mineral source can reduce variability in the animal leading to better overall profits.

Why use Optimin?
Optimin organic trace minerals form part of Nutreco’s Selko additive portfolio and the local range comprises Cobalt, Selenium, Copper, Manganese and Zinc. Trace minerals are essential to maintain fertility, health and immunity. Optimin organic minerals are protected and easily absorbed, minimising risk of malnutrition. They support the animal to have an optimal mineral status contributing to health and improved performance.

• A superior trace mineral source can reduce variability in the animal leading to better overall profits.
• The nutritional success of any trace mineral depends on its ability to be absorbed in the small intestine.
• That is related to the capacity of the ligand to hold onto and help it survive the environment of the gastrointestinal tract until its absorption.
• Optimin has high bond stability, allowing it to maintain its structure under acidic conditions, such as is typical in the stomach.
• Optimin organic trace minerals have been specially formulated to have excellent bioavailability.

How does Optimin work?
When supplying trace minerals, it is essential that the bond to the ligand has optimal strength.

Trace minerals are essential to maintain fertility, health and immunity. Optimin organic minerals are protected and easily absorbed, minimising risk of malnutrition. Optimin supports the animal to have an optimal mineral status contributing to health and improved performance. A superior trace mineral source can reduce variability in the animal leading to better overall profits.

The trace mineral-ligand bond(s) need to be strong and stable enough to survive passage through to the small intestine for absorption into the blood stream.

The bond must not be so strong as to prevent mineral transporters produced by the animal from facilitating absorption into the bloodstream.
