Bioavailability Matters When Selecting Minerals
The chemical form of a nutrient impacts the degree to which it can be absorbed and utilized to support important metabolic processes within an animal. In order for an animal to absorb minerals – such as chromium – the mineral must either solubilize or dissociate in the digestive system of the animal. In this way, solubility is a key indicator of bioavailability and plays a vital role in the efficacy of a product. Superior bioavailability ensures the nutrient is available in a form the animal can use for optimal nutritional benefits.
KemTRACE® Chromium is the Gold Standard
KemTRACE® Chromium – the first product of its kind on the market – is a water soluble, highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium that helps improve glucose utilization and reduce the negative impacts of stress for increased cellular energy and function. This results in improved animal maintenance, reproduction, growth and immunity. KemTRACE Chromium has been fed to millions of animals around the globe since its introduction in 2000. It is registered in more than 35 countries worldwide and is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration-reviewed form of chromium propionate.
