MULTIPURPOSE CHELATED MINERALS

CHELATED MINERALS

Livestock require minerals specially mico minerals, in appropriate amounts and biologically available forms for efficient production performance and maintenance of normal health. Deficiencies of minerals occur frequently in diets consisting of common feed ingredients, and these must be provided in a supplemental form. Though the requirements of the minerals is in micro quantities, yet they have very important roles in various biological processes involved in the body for vitamin synthesis, hormone production, as activator of enzymes, in collagen formation, tissue synthesis, oxygen transport, energy production and other physiological processes related to growth, reproduction and health. Mineral supplements are required to fortify animal diets. These are two major classes of mineral sources: inorganic and organic chelate (metal chelate). Organic minerals, however, have been shown to be more effectively absorbed by the animal.

REQUIREMENT OF CHELATED MINERALS:-
Deficiencies of minerals occurs frequently in the diets consisting of common feed ingredients and to fulfill the nutrition value these must be provided in the supplemental forms as they play very important role in the biological process.

These are involved in the biological processes like for vitamin synthesis, hormone production, as activator of enzymes, in collagen formation, tissue synthesis, organic transport, energy production and other important physiological processes related to growth reproduction and health.

AVAILABILITY OF ORGANIC MINERAL COMPLEXES (CHELATES):-
A chelate is described as a metal complex in which the metal atom is held in the complex through more than one point of attachment to the ligand (chelating agent), with the metal atom occupying a central position in the complex. Natural digestion of foods produces numerous ligands that can complex (chelate) with the minerals in the diet and facilitate their passage from the lumen of the intestine into the cells of the intestinal wall, where they eventually chelate with natural ligands that transport the minerals throught the body. In theory, the introduction of the chelated minerals will increase absorption and utilization of the mineral because of a more favorable binding or stability constant.

Therefore in an animal digestive system, organic trace minerals, those that are bound to the organic ligand such as protein, amino acids or carbohydrates, may be more biologically available than inorganic trace minerals. Naturally occurring chelating agents are widely distributed in all living systems in nature including carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, phosphates (phytic acid), prophyrins and vitamins (vitamin b12 and ascorbic acid).

COMMERCIALLY PRODUCED COMPLEXES:-
When commercially manufactures the number of ligands or chelating agents is more limited than that found in nature, but still creates significant variability when we compare these sources for use in a mineral supplement. The basic classifications are metal complexes.

METAL (SPECIFIC AMINO ACID) COMPLEXES (MSAA COMPLEXES):-
These result from complexing a soluble metal salt (inorganic mineral as described above) with a specific amino acid. For instance, one of the most common metal complexes is zinc methionine which is produced by combining zinc sulphate with amino acid methionine. Other common metal (specific amino acid) complexes include copper lysine and manganese methionine. The production of these types of complexes results in a very specific metal complex that is consistent in molecular size and stability. Thus metal complexes are consistent in how it is digested and absorbed by the live stock or poultry. When considered with the consistency and stability, metal complexes are probably the most effectively and efficiently absorbed of all the complexes.

MIXTURE OF AMINO ACID COMPLEXES:-
Another similar production produces a different type of metal amino acid complexs. This is a more general type of product which is characterized by a metal atom (zinc for instance) complexed with several single amino acids. Each individual molecule is still one metal ion and one amino acid but you have a variety of other amino acids in the blend. For instance, a zinc complex in this category, the blend would include zinc methionine, zinc lysine, zinc leucine, zinc cystine, etc. With each molecule being specific but the whole product being a blend of these complexes. This process would hold true for other trace minerals as well, copper manganese etc.

LIMITATIONS OF EDTA BASED CHELATED MINERALS:
Early attempts at protecting essential trace elements involved „chelating? Them with etda, which co-ordinates transition metal ions via two nitrogen atoms and four oxygen atoms. These attempts failed miserably, not because edta did not protect the metal adequately, but because it over-protected it; failing it to release it for systemic use and leading to almost complete expulsion from the body. There is clear evidence from the research point of view that amino acids and short peptides are among the best and most practical ligands for protecting transition metals in the digestive tract. When amino acids are used on their own, current terminology designates them „metal amino acid chelates? While „metal proteinates?, on the other hand, utilize a mixture of both single amino acids and short peptides.

UNIQUE AND ADVANCED CHELATION TECHNOLOGY BASED ON AMINO ACIDS / SHORT PEPTIDES:-
Amino acids and short peptides are the best and most practical ligands for protecting the transitional metals in the digestive tract of life pertaining to any living system.

When amino acids and short peptides are used on their own, current terminology designates them as “metal amino chelates” while “metal proteinates”, on the other hand, utilize a mixture of both single amino acids and short peptides.

Amino acids and short peptides are very consistent in the molecular size and stability.

Thus amino acids and short peptides are consistent in digestion and absorbtion by any living system which results in maximum bio availability.

Amino acids and short peptides show high solubility in the rumen leaving and does not make metal ion available to be bound to other compounds increasing availability.

Therefore in an animal?s digestive system, organic trace minerals, those that are bound to organic ligands such as proteins, amino acids or carbohydrates are more biologically available than trace minerals.

Prathista is enjoying unique position for the past 15 years as leading manufacturer of cereal / vegetable proteins based protein hydrolysates (mixture of 25 amino acids).
