Emcelle® - Tocopherol

Emcelle-Tocopherol is a clear, liquid vitamin E supplement that can be mixed into drinking water, or top-dressed onto dry feed.

The product should not be mixed into complete feeds and stored for extended periods of time

The vitamin E activity is provided as d-alpha-tocopherol, a natural-source and biologically active form of vitamin E. This form of vitamin E, although less stable than tocopheryl-esters, does not have to be hydrolyzed prior to absorption. This seems to be of greater importance to young animals that may have a deficiency of esterase enzyme necessary to cleave the tocopheryl-esters prior to absorption and exotic animals such as the elephant and rhinoceros. 

The micellized form also enhances the ability of animals to utilize vitamin E. The micellization process allows the fat-soluble vitamin to be absorbed more readily than dry, oil-based, or emulsion-forms of vitamin E.

Product Form: Liquid, available in 1 liter (33.8 fl oz) plastic bottles

Every exotic animal deserves the right nutrition

Vitamin E not less than 500 IU

This product contains 500 IU vitamin E activity per 1 ml. 

This product contains 500 IU vitamin E activity per 1 ml. It is designed to be fed at a daily rate of 1-3 IU per pound of body weight (2-6 IU per kg). As an example, a 100 lb animal would require 0.2 to 0.6 ml daily to provide 100 to 300 IU vitamin E activity. A 1000 lb animal would require 2 to 6 ml daily to provide 1000 to 3000 IU vitamin E activity. The product may be diluted with water immediately prior to feeding. 

The selected dosage should depend upon previous as well as existing feeding and management practices that affect animals' vitamin E status. The most important factors that increase the need for supplemental vitamin E are:

  • Low plasma tocopherol levels (below 0.2 mg per dL),
  • Continual confinement feeding of animals,
  • Feeding poor quality, long-stored roughages,
  • Feeding milk replacers that contain tocopheryl-acetate to young animals, and
  • Feeding high levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA's).
Storage Directions
