Intra Mineral Se+Vit E

Stress and rapid growth rates in pigs may increase the production of free oxygen radicals in the body. These free radicals may damage body cells. This causes the immune system to be affected, making the pig more susceptible to external infections.

 

Antioxidants
Vitamin E and selenium are antioxidants which may prevent this “ageing process” to a large extent. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and thereby alleviates the negative effects of environmental stress. Cell membranes are particularly susceptible to oxidative damage. Vitamin E is effective as an antioxidant by working within the in the cell membranes. Selenium is a necessary component of an enzyme the glutathione peroxidase enzyme. This enzyme is the essential link for an optimal immune system and its action is mainly extracellular.


Intra Mineral Se + Vit E
Intra Mineral Se + Vit E is a combination of Vitamin E and selenium in a water soluble formulation, which does not pollute the drinking water. Its use is indicated during periods of increased nutritional demand for Vitamin E and selenium. 

 

Intra Mineral Se + Vit E is mainly used in pigs to support the immune system. Addition of Intra Mineral Se + Vit E to the drinking water delivers the active ingredients in an easily absorbed and highly bio-available way.
