Chelated minerals are meant to boost absorption. They’re bound to a chelating agent, which are typically organic compounds or amino acids that help prevent the minerals from interacting with other compounds. Some research suggests that taking chelated minerals may reduce the total amount you need to consume to reach healthy blood levels.
Mineral salts and oxides usually have very high mineral contents, but lack solubility, as well as high levels of sulphates, chlorides or nitrates that encourage salinification. In contrast to this, polymers based bio caging technology are very good bioavailable molecules and provide minerals to animals better absorption. The polymer bio-caging also are very good transport systems, can hold up to 60 mineral ions per molecule of polymers hence increase loading capacity. The main advantage is the permeation of minerals to cellular levels when it gets absorbed. Quantity of minerals that can be bonded per bio-cage complex are high and release minerals to blood and cellular levels. This usually makes animal absorption systems effective, with relatively low levels of minerals are required for physiological level of free minerals available to animal cells. Our scientific studies have proven them to be of great benefit for improving animal health, increasing production rates, and lowering costs. We have found dose reduced over four to five-fold less when given as feed and water additive.
