Micronutrients as trace minerals play a vital role in various metabolic, enzymatic and biochemical reactions ultimately leading to better growth rate, and feed efficiency. Trace minerals have a very important role to play in the mechanism of nutrient circulation in the animal organism. Deficiency or imbalance of any of these vital micronutrients results in deficiency diseases, metabolic disorders.
Trace elements function as part of larger organic molecules. For example, iron is a part of hemoglobin and cytochrome, copper, manganese and zinc function as essential accessory factors to enzymes. If any of these minerals is deficient, the functional activity of the organic moiety requiring the presence of the mineral will be decreased.
The physiological activity and its deficiency symptoms are given below.
Trace Minerals are absorbed in the intestine in ionic forms. They are supplemented in inorganic salts, which get dissociated after entering the system. The free metal ion first gets attached to an organic molecule or escort. Due to multiple antagonistic reactions of ingredients in the animal digestive system and limited ligand /escort availability whatever minerals are able to find an escort are absorbed and balance is excreted.
