What are Bioplex minerals?
Bioplex organic trace minerals provide nutritionally important trace mineral nutrition in a form as close to nature as possible.
Bioplex minerals are as close to nature’s plant forms as manufacturing processes allow. Vegetable proteins are hydrolyzed to a mixture of amino acids and peptides, reacted with mineral salts, then conditions are set to allow formation of the chelates. The result? A mixture of mineral-amino acid and mineral-peptide chelates – just like those in plants. By presenting minerals in the same types of compounds found in nature, Bioplex minerals are easily absorbed and more highly retained by the animal, establishing adequate tissue reserves to support disease defense and overall animal health.
Trace minerals play a crucial role in pet nutrition. In order to help maintain a healthy coat and skin, balanced growth and optimum disease resistance, pets require a consistent, available and active mineral supply.
Petfood formulations can interfere with mineral absorption causing reduced immunity, low metabolism, unsatisfactory skin health and delayed animal growth. Bioplex organic trace minerals are unique in that they are protected by multiple amino acids and peptides. This level of protection gets them safely through the volatile GI environment to absorption sites, maximizing retention of essential trace minerals to interactions and antagonisms. This level of protection gets them safely through the volatile GI environment to absorption sites, preventing loss of essential trace minerals.
Easily absorbed from the intestine, Bioplex minerals are more highly retained in the animal. Benefits of proper trace mineral status include: improved immune function, tissue maintenance, activity of digestive enzymes, collagen synthesis and coat condition.
