MINTREX® chelated trace minerals are recognized in the feed industry as a source of highly bioavailable trace minerals. Feeding MINTREX to dairy cows has been shown to promote productivity, enhance herd health and optimize trace mineral status. MINTREX trace minerals are produced by reacting two molecules of HMTBa, found in ALIMET®
feed supplement, with one molecule of a specific trace mineral (Cu, Mn or Zn). The molecules form four coordinate covalent bonds with the trace mineral, forming a stable
molecule. Because of its stability, the molecule remains intact through the wide range of challenges found in
the digestive tract. The four bonds are what give MINTREX stability, which ensures superior bioavailability.
