The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Veterinary Medicine has approved the use of chromium propionate as a source of chromium in horse diets. With this approval KemTrace, a chromium propionate, is now approved for use in swine, broiler chickens, cattle and horses. KemTrace Chromium from Kemin is the only FDA-reviewed source of chromium propionate on the market.
KemTrace Chromium is a highly bioavailable, organic source of chromium propionate that helps stabilize insulin receptors in animals, improving glucose use and reducing the negative impacts of stress. Maximizing cells’ utilization of glucose may result in improved immune response, and overall health and performance.
With more than twenty years of research and fifty peer-reviewed chromium research studies, Kemin established chromium propionate as safe and efficacious. Published research across many species has shown chromium may have the ability to reduce cortisol, which is a hormone secreted in response to stress. The reduction in cortisol during times of stress may decrease negative impacts from stress events – such as extreme heat or cold, diet changes, changes in routine and more.
KemTrace Chromium is manufactured at Kemin in Des Moines, Iowa, USA. The product is also available for use in horse diets in Mexico. Additionally, KemTrace Chromium is available for use in more than 35 countries around the world for a variety of species.
