X-Bond®: The effective triple-action product for harmful mycotoxin levels

Pigs depend on their feed to keep them healthy and productive. So, when natural mycotoxins contaminate feed crops, the impact on pig growth and development can be dramatic – with lost earnings for farmers as a result.

Vilomix has developed X-Bond® to minimize and prevent this risk. A triple-action product, X-Bond® not only binds and deactivates naturally occurring mycotoxins. It supports animal performance by delivering a functional nutrient complex.

X-Bond® is a combination of clay minerals, hydrolysed yeast cells and functional additives, including enzymes, vitamins and minerals. 

X-Bond® is available in three variants, each with a one-year shelf life.

BIND

Clay minerals adsorb mycotoxins so they cannot enter the blood stream

DEACTIVATE

Enzymes transform mycotoxins into
non-toxic metabolites

SUPPORT

A tailored nutrient complex boosts gut,
liver and immune function

BINDING:

The bentonite used in the X-Bond® series has been tested in an in vitro trial to determine the adsorption of Aflatoxin B1 according to the EURL method. The binding rate was found to be 91.16% no matter the pH level - and is hence well above the EU requirements of 90%.

the binding rate of x-bond® is 91.16% and is hence well above the EU requirement

DEACTIVATION:

The deactivation powers of X-Bond® Premium towards the mycotoxins DON and FUM have been tested in vitro. DON and FUM can be particularly severe for sows at high levels.

Even after a few hours DON is deactivated and transformed 1:1 into a non-toxic metabolite. The process is irreversible. FUM is deactivated even faster - and again the process is irreversible.

SUPPORTING:

One of the ingredients included in X-Bond® is Progut® - a dual function product from Hankkija that smooths the functioning of the gut.

Trials show that the level of immune cells is higher and that the concentrations of immunoglobulins (IgA) in the gut is higher, when Progut® is part of the feed.
