4-Plex® E

4-Plex®E is a nutritional feed ingredient for organic livestock and poultry production that contains organic zinc, manganese, copper and cobalt. This product is officially listed under the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and allowed for use in the production of organic foods (meat, milk, eggs, etc). Trace minerals are required by animals for numerous functions, including: immunity, reproduction, skin and hoof integrity, growth and muscle development, milk production, fiber digestion and energy metabolism. In addition, when an animal has the proper balance of organic trace minerals it is better able to cope with the challenging effects of stress. 4-Plex-E, from Zinpro Performance Minerals®, is built on a unique, patented molecule that consists of one metal ion bound to one amino acid ion – called a metal specific amino acid complex. Zinpro Performance Minerals provide the highest biological efficacy of any trace mineral products on the market, which means more of the minerals are absorbed by the animal to deliver their full benefit. For more than 45 years, Zinpro Performance Minerals have delivered positive animal performance responses and a strong return on investment in operations around the world. A nutritional feed ingredient for animal feed. When used as a commercial feed ingredient, it must be declared as zinc methionine complex, manganese methionine complex, copper lysine complex and cobalt glucoheptonate.
