THE EFFECTIVE TRIPLE-ACTION PRODUCT FOR HARMFUL MYCOTOXIN LEVELS
Cattle depend on their feed to keep them healthy and productive. So, when natural mycotoxins contaminate feed crops, the impact on growth and development can be dramatic – with lost earnings for farmers as a result.
Vilomix has developed X-Bond® Rumen to minimize and prevent this risk. A triple-action product, X-Bond® Rumen not only binds and deactivates naturally occurring mycotoxins. It supports animal performance by delivering a functional nutrient complex.
X-Bond® Rumen is a combination of clay minerals, hydrolysed yeast cells and functional additives, including enzymes, vitamins and minerals.
X-Bond® Rumen is also available in a version for organic production.
Clay minerals adsorb mycotoxins so they cannot enter the blood stream
Enzymes transform mycotoxins into non-toxic metabolites
A tailored nutrient complex boosts gut, liver and immune function
The bentonite used in X-Bond® Rumen 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® RUMEN IS 91.16% AND IS HENCE WELL ABOVE THE EU REQUIREMENT
The deactivation powers of X-Bond® Rumen towards the mycotoxin DON and ZEN has been tested in vitro. DON is one of the most prevalent mycotoxins found in cattle feed and is known to impair the immune system.
Cattle feed is typically kept in the rumen for 8-10 hours. At a normal passage speed the majority of DON and ZEN will be broken when X-Bond Rumen is added.

One of the ingredients included in X-Bond® Rumen is Progut® - a dual function product from Hankkija that smooths the functioning of the rumen.
In the weeks just after calving the immune system has been stimulated and recovered. A long-term effect is also seen.
