What makes dac Yucca 5-Way PAC different?
- Yucca Schidigera Extract – active components of yucca include steroidal saponins and polyphenolics such as resveratrol and yuccaols. Yucca phenolics also are antioxidants and free-radical scavengers, which may aid in suppressing reactive oxygen species that stimulate inflammatory responses. Antioxidants are believed to scavenge free radicals, which are thought to trigger tissue inflammation at the cellular level via oxidative reactions. Yucca has also been known for its ability to reduce ammonia (NH3) from animal waste. The Yucca Schidigera Extract used in dac Yucca 5-Way PAC is a high quality source provided by Alltech branded De-Odorase.
- Yea Sacc®1026 – a live yeast culture derived from the specific yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae 1026. Yea Sacc® 1026 increases fiber, phosphorus and calcium digestibility, and increases gross energy, total lipids and amino acid absorption. Yea Sacc®1026 improves milk availability to foals if administered for 3-4 weeks before and throughout the lactation period.
- Bio-available Trace Minerals, or chelated minerals, are those that have been bonded to two or more amino acids. A mineral in this chelated state allows easy passage through the intestinal wall into the blood resulting in increased metabolism of that mineral. dac Yucca 5-Way PAC utilizes organic minerals to increase availability and enhance absorption rates.
- Bio-available Copper is essential in the synthesis and maintenance of connective tissue.
- Bio-available Zinc is a micro mineral found throughout the body including in bone and muscle.
- Bio-available Manganese is essential for the synthesis of chondroitin sulfate necessary in cartilage formation. Deficiency results in abnormal cartilage and bone development.
