© ZEO, Inc. ZAR-MIN Organic Natural Zeolite Feed Additive

 

 

A natural mineral produced from the earth’s crust, ZAR-MIN has a broad range of elements. Since the ZAR-MIN natural zeolite was produced under different geological conditions than other natural zeolite and other natural mineral deposits, the concentrations of the major elements will be similar and the ratios of different elements will vary.

For centuries, feed additives and natural mineral products have been used to help supplement the nutrients in animal feed and to supply the macro, micro, and trace minerals needed for a healthy and thriving animal. A trace element can be as essential to animal heath as the macro or micro nutrients. While research is concentrated on macro and micro nutrients, more research is be done on trace elements; López-Alonso’s excellent reviews give an overview of the advances in trace element nutritional research. (M. López-Alonso, “Trace Minerals and Livestock: Not Too Much Not Too Little,” ISRN Veterinary Science, vol. 2012, Article ID 704825, 18 pages),

The difference between a “Healthy” and “Sick” dairy or beef herd can often be tracked to the quantity and quality of the trace minerals in the ration. Due to a wide range of factors, some animals can have sub-clinical diseases while the herd on average is being fed trace elements according to the National Research Council (NRC) requirements (H. Guyot, C. Saegerman, P. Lebreton, C. Sandersen, F. Rollin, “Epidemiology of trace elements deficiencies in Belgian beef and dairy cattle herds,” Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, 23, 116-123)
