Chromium supplementation for beef cattle results in better animal performance, growth, reproduction and immunity. KemTRACE® Chromium is a highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium that helps improve glucose utilization for optimum cell function.
All chromium is not created equal. KemTRACE Chromium is:
Made in the United States, KemTRACE Chromium is available in two product concentrations:
Insulin acts as a "key" that unlocks the cell "door," allowing blood glucose to enter and be used as energy. Chromium improves insulin function and results in efficient clearance of glucose from the bloodstream leading to more cellular energy where your cattle need it.1
By understanding a product's mode of action, you can be confident that it will provide benefits for your animals. See the KemTRACE Chromium mode of action at work.
