Salt and Trace Elements are an essential part of the daily diet of all animals for best performance and productivity. NUTRIMIN enriches the daily diet with salt and trace elements which contribute significantly in the increasement of animal' s productivity and also in their health improvememnt.

What is improving



Cobalt has only one known function, which is a constituent of vitamin B12. Cobalt is required for rumen microbes to synthesize vitamin B12. Deficiency symptoms are easily confused with gross malnutrition or starvation.


Iron is essential for a wide variety of the metabolic processes of living organisms, due to its chemical transitional property. Iron is present in the different forms of heme and the iron-sulfur (Fe-S) cluster binding protein, which plays an important role in various enzymatic reactions such as aerobic respiration, TCA-cycle function and DNA synthesis as well as oxygen transport and storage. It is a substantial component of red blood cells participating to the blood's structure and improves the functioning of organs and tissues.



Sodium is a macro element absolutely necessary for the correct body operation and function of every living creature. It is the principal cation (positive ion) of the extracellular fluids, where it is usually in combination with the chloride anion (negative ion) forming sodium chloride. Sodium is indispensable for the regulation of acid base balance and osmotic pressure. Its other main role is maintaining the membrane potential in nerve and muscle tissues thereby facilitating the generation and transmission of electrical impulses. It is met in all body's soft tissues and in all its liquids playing a lead role to the conveying of nervous stimulations and the sugar and amino acids absorption by the digestive system, controlling water balance and improving animal’s appetite.


Selenium is a component of glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme for the removal of lipid peroxides. Selenium is very important in fertility and helps muscular development. Se is also a component of two other selenoproteins. The midpiece of sperm requires selenoprotein. Microbes in the rumen replace S with Se in their S-containing amino acid synthesis. They are absorbed in the duodenum as amino acids. White muscle disease and exudative diathesis are two Se deficiency symptoms, which can be treated with both vitamin E and Se. Deficient animals also show liver necrosis. Selenium prevents oxidative damage to tissues by offering an antioxidant action and protects against cell damage.



Iodine’s function is as a constituent of thyroxin, a thyroid gland hormone that regulates the basal metabolic rate. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), secreted by the anterior pituitary gland, enhances the iodine uptake by the thyroid gland. Short-term deficiency leads to hypothyroidism, with reduced growth rate and reproductive problems, hair loss, and dry skin. Long-term deficiency leads to goiter. Without iodine, thyroxin cannot be synthesized. This causes the release of TSH, which in turn causes the hypertrophy of the thyroid gland.


Manganese is concentrated in the animal bones. It is an important cofactor for many enzymes involved in energy and protein metabolism. Mn is also required for mucopolysaccharide synthesis. This is a major component in the organic matrix of bones. Consequently, deficient animals have normal tendon growth but slow bone growth. This leads to symptoms such as perosis in chicks and crooked calf in other animals.



Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heartbeat steady, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps adjust blood glucose levels. It aids in the production of energy and protein, improves the digestibility of feed and improves the reproduction.

Zinc is an essential nutrient for animals, functioning in enzyme systems and being involved in protein synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, and many other biochemical reactions. A severe zinc deficiency causes numerous pathological changes, including skin parakeratosis, reduced or cessation of growth, general debility, lethargy, and increased susceptibility to infection.

Case Study

1The Role Of Minerals & Trace Elements
  • A lot of Inorganic elements constitute the animal's body ingredients, and that makes them necessary for the body's regular function. Their existence is very important for the avoiding the deficiency of several useful to the body ingredients. Those deficiencies are pathological situations which decrease the animals' productivity to its minimum levels while at the same time could also lead to the animals' death.
  • The inorganic elements are divided in those which are met in the body in relatively big quantities and are called MACRO ELEMENTS and in those which are met in small quantities ( traces ) and are called MICRO ELEMENTS or TRACE ELEMENTS. In general all these inorganic elements are commonly named as MINERALS.
  • The role of minerals to the animal's body is structural, as it happens for example with the Calcium (Ca), the Magnesium (Mg) and the Phosphor (P) which play a significant role to the bones structure, the Iron, (Fe) which participates to the structure of the blood., the IODE which contributes to the formulation of THYROXINE , the ZINC (Zn) which acts as an ingredient of a great number of enzymes, the Manganese (Mn) which constitutes a vital and necessary ingredient of the enzymes participating to the carbohydrates, fats and proteins metabolism and others.
  • Their contribution is also very important to the maintaining of the osmotic pressure within the animal's organism. Osmotic pressure is a natural factor controlling the correct distribution of water to the body.
  • Sodium (Na), Chloride (Cl), and Magnesium (Mg) are absolutely necessary elements to the preservation of the osmotic pressure to normal levels to the extracellular fluids but also inside the organism's cells.
  • Besides it has been proved that trace elements such as the Selenium (Se) , the Cobalt (Co) and the Zinc (Zn), when available in the organism in sufficient quantities, strengthen the immune system and thus the animal's resistance to illnesses.
  • Minerals and Salt deficiency can cause loss of appetite, depressed growth, diarrhea, low lactate levels and complexities with fertility as well as to result to a weak immune system making the animal more vulnerable to diseases.
  • 2Conclusion
