Alltech Publishes Review on Organic Trace Minerals


Dr. Richard Murphy, Director of Research at Alltech, has authored a white paper entitled Organic Trace Minerals: Enhancing Bioavailability through Chelation.  The incisive article includes research data and provides basic information on the mechanisms relating to chelation with specific reference to stability of organic trace mineral complexes.


Organic trace mineral compounds with high stability demonstrate superior absorption that can contribute to improved reproductive efficiency, immunity, and growth.


Dr. Murphy noted “From a sustainability point of view we cannot continue to supplement diets with inorganic compounds at current high inclusion levels without having negative environmental consequences.” Murphy added, “Alltech research with organic trace minerals is intended to use less elemental trace minerals to achieve more for livestock producers and the environment.”
