What is bioavailability?
In short, this basically means that the minerals can be readily absorbed or taken up by the animal. This quick uptake addresses any deficiencies before they affect output.
When do I need to administer Mega Mineral?
Research has shown that smaller, regular dosages of minerals (eg. Adding to feed or water supply) is better than large spasmodic “megadoses” (drenches). The most important thing, however, is that the animals have sufficient access to the minerals, in order to perform. Set times of the year when feed quality is poor or demands on the animal are increased
Boron: Carrier of essential elements to the cells.
Calcium: Essential for bone and teeth formation, milk production, nerve function, cell permeability, muscle contraction and blood coagulation.
Chloride: Maintains osmotic pressure and acid-based balance of body fluids.
Cobalt: Major function as an essential component of vitamin B12 and Propionate, (a major source of energy in ruminants) rumen micro-organisms use cobalt for synthesis of vitamin B12 and the growth of rumen bacteria.
Copper: Essential for Haemoglobin formulation, in the enzyme system for hair/wool development and pigmentation, bone development, reproduction and lactation. Enhances disease resistance.
Iodide: Used by the thyroid gland to produce thyroxin, a type of iodine that contains hormones that control metabolic rates of the animal.
Magnesium: Essential for normal skeletal development, is a constituent of bone and functions as an enzyme activator in the glycolic system.
Phosphorous: Involved in bone and teeth formation and energy metabolism, also an important component to many enzyme systems.
Potassium: Involved in osmotic pressure and acid-base balance, Influences carbohydrate metabolism and muscle activity.
Selenium: Needed for Vitamin E absorption and retention plays an important part in the production of antibodies and thus disease resistance. Deficiency may cause high rates of infertility.
Sodium: Associated with muscle contraction. Involved in water balance, transfer of nutrients to cells and waste removal.
Sulphur: Required as a constituent of cystine and methionine (amino acids) and other elements involved in various metabolic functions.
Zinc: Needed for bone and development for normal protein synthesis and metabolisms.
