3 Nutrition Min. & Vit. deficiency affect the appetite, growth, immunity & reproduction Trace mineral deficiency (Zn, Se, Mn & Cu) - ovarian inactivity, decreased immune response & growth Zn, Cu & Se integral component of antioxidant system in body Trace mineral deficiency are mostly submarginal to marginal

4 Half of soils in world are Zn deficient (Nielson,2004) Same is reflected in feeds & fodder & hence animals Zn is very critical mineral Need to optimize requirements of Zn for proper growth, immune response and reproduction Concentration of Zn in livestock feeds & fodders is critically deficient in AP (Nagalakshmi et al., 2007 & 2009) and most parts of the country (Gowda et al., 2009)

5 Form of mineral supplementation Inorganic form (sulphates, oxides, carbonates, chlorides) Organic form (chelated minerals) Inorganic minerals Relatively cheaper Readily available Form the basis of NRC mineral requirement

6 Problems with inorganic minerals Low bioavailability 4-22% Variable availability in market Presence of contaminants (Heavy metals: ZnO & CuSO4 are from residues of steel industry (have high levels of Cd, F and Pb) Purity of inorganic salts in market Various processing conditions used in manufacturing likely reduce biological availability These uncertainities: inorganic minerals supplemented 2-10 times NRC requirement

7 Excess supplementation of Inorganic minerals Damage in nutrient absorption Reduces mineral bioavailability Causes environmental pollution (soil & ground water) Led to focus on chelated/organic minerals

8 Organic/chelated minerals Complexing inorganic element with organic compound (amino acid(s), peptides, proteins, polysaccharides, organic acids, vitamins) Chelation- complex formed between an organic molecule and a metallic ion. Metal held with in the organic molecule as if by a “claw”. Chelate -Greek word - ‘Claw’ Naturally occurring chelates : Chlorophyll, Cytochrome, Haemoglobin, Vitamin B 12

9 Mineral absorption in gut Free metal ion Antagonist + Metal & Mineral Interactions Excretion Ligand + Metal Absorption Enterocyte

10 Mutual antagonism

11 Advantages of organic minerals Reduction of antagonism, interferences and competition among minerals. Improve the bioavailability of minerals ( 1.2-1.85 times higher than inorganic) Counteract antinutritional factors that affect mineral utilization Hence improvement in performance, health & reproduction Protect environment by reducing metal pollution. 1.Metal (specific amino acid) Complex 2.Metal Amino acid Complex 3.Metal Amino acid Chelate 4.Mineral proteinates 5.Mineral polysaccharide complex 6.Metal organic acids Types

12 Metal organic acids Metal propionate Resulting of combining soluble metals with soluble organic acids like propionates Zn-propionate Zn P Acid PA

13 Organic minerals are costly compared to inorganic source 1. To supplement at lower concentration than the standard recommendation 2. To replace a portion of inorganic minerals with organic source

26 Factors affecting mineral absorption

27 Organic minerals: Bioavailability More bioavailable: 1.2-1.85 times higher than inorganic Reasons Ring structure protects the mineral from unwanted chemical reactions in GIT Chelates easily pass intact through the intestinal wall into blood stream Passive absorption increased by reducing interactions between mineral & other nutrients and by increasing water and lipid solubility of minerals Mineral is delivered in form similar to that found in body Each mineral in chelate facilitates the absorption of other minerals in chelate Chelates carry negative charge so absorbed & metabolized more efficiently Chelation increases solubility & movement thru cell membranes Chelation increases stability at low pH Chelates are absorbed by the amino acid transport system
