Success case: PlusBreathe© promotes productivity in heat-stressed ducklings

The optimum environmental temperature for raising broiler ducks is 16-22℃ and only within this range the best performance can be achieved. When the environmental temperature is higher than 28℃, the ducks become heat-stressed: the normal physiological functions are altered, feed intake is reduced, feed conversion and growth rate worsen, the immune system is impaired and […]

Heat stress and immunosuppression: essential oils come to the rescue!

High environmental temperature is among the most important causes of poor performance in our industry. Heat stress negatively affects the oxidative status of the animals, egg quality, reproductive performance, gut health and immune response. Immunosuppression during heat stress leads to a raise mortality and to an increased susceptibility to different diseases. MODULATION OF THE IMMUNE RESPONSE […]

In the hot season, plant extracts prevent the damage caused by oxidative stress

Heat stress causes serious physiological dysfunctions that result in a decline in animal performance and in a deterioration of overall health. In an article that we published last year, we explained how the redirection of the blood flow towards the skin, in order to maintain the body temperature, causes a decrease in the supply of […]

Essential oils as natural mucolytics and expectorants

The role of mucus in respiratory health The mucus secreted by the respiratory system is a major mechanism of defense against respiratory infections. It is composed by 95% of water, 2% of salts and 3% of organic compounds, including cells related to the immune system , antibodies and lysozyme, an enzyme capable of destroying microbes […]

We prove the fungicidal activity of PlusBreathe against Aspergillus flavus

Aspergillosis is the most common respiratory fungal infection in poultry. More than 20 species of birds, including chickens, ducks and geese, can be affected. Among them, young birds are the most susceptible: outbreaks of aspergillosis in chicks can result in more than 30% mortality and cause huge economic losses. Aspergillus is a genus of fungi […]

Improving eggshell quality under heat stress

High environmental temperatures cause very serious economic losses to the egg industry each year. There are 3 major factors contributing to these losses: Biochemical, hormonal and metabolic changes due to high temperatures, in example increased production of free radicals that leads to reproductive disturbances (worse laying rate) and failure of the gut barrier. Poor egg quality Impaired […]

Heat stress impairs intestinal barrier integrity and leads to leaky gut

The gastrointestinal tract is one of the main organs affected by heat stress. Diarrhea, watery feces, digestive infections, inflammation of the intestinal tissues, etc are triggered by the exposure to high temperatures. In recent years, the gastrointestinal problems that happen during heat stress have been linked to a failure of the gut barrier function (leaky gut). […]

Advantages of the use of essential oils to relieve heat stress

Essential oils relieve heat stress through 3 main mechanisms of action Heat stress occurs when the amount of heat produced by an animal surpasses the animal’s capacity to dissipate the heat to its surrounding environment. It is associated with increased mortality, digestive problems, metabolic imbalance, muscle dysfunction and impaired productivity across species. Follow the links […]

Essential oils help to reduce the number of insects in the farm

Insects such as flies, mosquitoes, midges, red mites and ticks cause major economic loss to farmers. Their bites produce skin lesions, irritations or allergic–type reactions to the animals or to the farm workers. On the other hand, insects are vectors of pathogenic bacteria and virus, like Pasteurella sp, E.coli, Salmonella sp or Avian Influenza Virus. Insect […]
