ProPath® 4 (metal amino acid complex) is a nutritional feed ingredient for all species (except sheep and other ovine species). It contains a combination of organic zinc, manganese, copper and cobalt. It is built from a unique, patented trace mineral product that combines two specific amino acids, each bound (or complexed) to a separate metal ion, in a stable, 1:1 ratio. ProPath 4, from Zinpro Performance Minerals®, delivers exceptional benefits to animals and customers. These benefits include a highly concentrated mineral formulation, superior uptake and absorption, biological efficacy, diet flexibility and consistency, product stability, solubility and sustainability. Flexible for use in a wide variety of diets, such as conventional or specialty (like non-GMO), ProPath 4 relies on two synergistic, amino-acid absorption pathways (cationic and anionic) to elevate trace mineral nutrition in the animal. Optimizing these pathways allows zinc, manganese, copper and cobalt to be more effectively absorbed and metabolically available in the animal’s organs, tissues and enzyme systems. The trace minerals in ProPath 4 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 trace minerals, it is better able to cope with the challenging effects of stress. Zinpro Performance Minerals are the most bioavailable trace minerals 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 amino acid complex, manganese amino acid complex, copper amino acid complex and cobalt glucoheptonate.
