Product Benefits.

Modes of Action.

Our effective range of feed additives and dietary feed supplements are specifically selected and developed to support animal health and productivity. Their modes of action add value and benefit.

Co-factor

Trace minerals and vitamins are important co-factors in physiologic processes. Trace elements function as activators of antioxidant enzymes. Vitamins have numerous roles in biochemical functions.

Structural Element

Serves as an integral element in vital structures. E.g., iron is a crucial component of hemoglobin for oxygen transport. Calcium is required for the building of bones and eggshell mineralization.

Beneficial Absorption Rate

Effective transport to the intestinal wall leads to a higher absorption. Organically bound minerals have a superior bioavailability than inorganic minerals.

Less Antagonistic Effects

In organically bound minerals the metals are protected against antagonistic effects like creating undesired bonds between other feed molecules.

Stable at Low pH Values

Because of the stability even at low pH values, there is less release of free metal ions in the upper gastrointestinal tract.

Product Description.

Calcium is an essential mineral and is critical for raising healthy animals. Calcium is essential for proper bone and tooth formation. It functions in energy metabolism, muscle and nerve function, immunity, and blood clotting. Calcium deficiency can manifest as reduced growth rate and reduced milk yield, bone abnormalities, impaired eggshell formation, milk fever, slow labor, and even increased mortality. In shrimp, calcium is required for proper molting.

Despite the importance of calcium, this important micromineral is often supplemented as inorganic calcium. However, the absorption of inorganic calcium in the small intestine can be impaired by antagonistic interactions with other feed ingredients and minerals. This results in unabsorbed calcium not being absorbed but excreted in the feces.

B.I.O.Key® Calcium is organically bound to lysine with numerous advantages over inorganic calcium. The chelated structure allows greater stability at low pH values. Therefore, the release of free calcium and the occurrence of antagonisms in the upper gastrointestinal tract are reduced. This allows a higher bioavailability of calcium from B.I.O.Key® Calcium in comparison to respective inorganic calcium sources. Using B.I.O.Key® Calcium means that calcium is always available during times of increased demand or stress.

Calcium is only a fraction of the total feed—but it makes all the difference! Calcium can only provide nutritional value if it is absorbed. B.I.O.Key® Calcium has been successfully used in high-performance animal feeds. B.I.O.Key® Calcium is an easy choice!
