Which minerals do what?

For a balanced nutrient supply, pets and livestock need minerals. The most important facts about potassium, sodium, and magnesium at a glance:

Natrium_Einfach_800px

Sodium

Among other things, sodium maintains the osmotic pressure in the cells, regulates the water balance, and plays an outstanding role in the impulse transmission in nerve tissue and the conduction of stimulation in muscle fibers. Together with chlorine, it is indispensable for the regulation of the acid/base balance. A lack of sodium can cause loss of appetite, low performance and weight loss.

Kalium_Einfach_800px

Potassium

Potassium is one of the most important electrolytes in the body and is essential for cell function. Potassium performs several tasks in metabolism, muscle activity and nerve function. Potassium is particularly important for pets. It provides a balanced diet and can help prevent cardiovascular diseases. In farm animals, potassium is used, for example, to treat heat stress. Since the body cannot store it, potassium must be consumed daily in sufficient quantities through food.

Magnesium_Einfach_800px

Magnesium

As an essential mineral, magnesium must be supplied daily with food. It plays a central role for bones and nerve functions. Especially highly stressed and nervous animals can benefit from an increased magnesium supply. For the metabolism and the functioning of the muscles as well as for the cardiovascular system, the magnesium supply is also indispensable. Magnesium in sulphate form is a valuable alternative to other magnesium compounds.

Pond salt

A certain salt concentration contributes to mobility and activity of fish. Pond salt is particularly suitable for use in freshwater and ornamental fish ponds as well as fish aquariums.
