Selenium Methionine

Selenium Methionine

Selenium Methionine Chelate is the third generation of trace mineral feed additives. It is manufactured with one metal ion bound to four methionine molecules which form ring compound with proper structure. This organic ring compound is very stable when passing the pre-intestinal volatile environment which allows the organic selenium to reach the target organs and tissues to maximize the utilization of trace minerals. At the target organs or tissues, the Selenium Methionine Chelate is absorbed as a whole molecule by the way of peptide path and amino acid path. Meanwhile, the metal ion was bound into a complete molecule and this reduces the antagonistic functions. The best bioavailability of Selenium has been well ensured as all mentioned above.

Selenium Methionine Chelate offers less ruining to other nutritional ingredients in the feed like vitamin, protein, etc. It also offers better palatability. These have improved the feed quality and feed efficiency.

Sow
1Improving the piglet daily body gain and increasing the feed conversation rate;
2Increasing the anti-oxidant function and improving anti-stress after weaning;
3Improving the immunity and anti-disease ability;
4Improving the sow reproductive performance with better result on number of survival piglet and piglet weaning weight;
5Improving the meat quality and meat color, and decreasing the muscle drip loss; reducing the PSE rate.
