Do you know that your organic trace minerals are delivering what you think they are?
We do, and have the studies to prove it.
The organic trace minerals used in Dynamite’s SOD for Horses are bound to multiple oligo-peptides and amino acids rather than single amino acids. These trace minerals have been demonstrated to have superior bond strength, and are maintained at different pH levels for optimal absorption at varying points in digestion. Due to the high quality of ingredients and excellent production process SOD trace minerals are easily absorbed by active transport mechanisms, which lowers the risk of mineral deficiencies, oxidative stress or competition between minerals for absorption.
The nutritional success of any organic trace mineral depends on the ability of the organic escort to hold onto and protect the it from undesirable reactions. The chelated minerals used in SOD have superior chelation stability that maintains the integrity and keeps the organic mineral in its original form during digestion. These chelated minerals are soluble and ready for targeted absorption, especially when they are needed most – under stress or during difﬁcult dietary digestive conditions.
The specific organic trace minerals in SOD are unique in that they are bonded by multiple points of attachment to multiple amino acids and oligo-peptides. Dynamite has chosen to use these because are the strongest chelated minerals on the market, with a bond strength significantly greater than any other product. The superior bond strength of the chelated mineral enhances the integrity and stability of the chelate structure when subjected to dilution and varying pH levels. Simple complexes and weaker chelates can be more easily hydrolyzed and decomposed during gastric passage and therefore lose some of their nutritional value.
A chelate is a trace metal bound by multiple attachment points to the organic molecule (ligand, escort) (Figure A). This is different from most other organic products on the market. Many of the other organic mineral products on the market are merely simple complexes. Simple complexes have only one attachment point between the metal and the organic escort (Figure B).
The multiple binding points of a true chelate provide a greater likelihood of increased stability.
SOD can deliver the trace minerals to the lower gut with greater effectiveness and, therefore, improve the trace mineral status in the animal. This, of course, is the ultimate goal.
