Effects of water-soluble non-starch polysaccharides on gut health

In a previous article, we discussed the importance of non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs) and pointed out that water-soluble NSPs are harmful to gut health. Water-soluble NSPs increase the viscosity of the digesta by 3 to 5 folds. By increasing the viscosity of the intestinal content, water-soluble NSPs impair productivity and gut health: Slow down feed passage […]

During heat stress, PlusBreathe© increases feed intake by 10%

In hot environments, animals are prone to change their feeding patterns: the processes of digestion and nutrient absorption produce metabolic heat and, to control body temperature, animals limit feed consumption. The magnitude of the reduction will depend on the species and the environmental temperature: for example, at 30ºC, Holstein cows eat 20% less; poultry 5% […]

The gut’s barrier function in production animals

The surface of the gastrointestinal tract is covered by epithelial cells. These cells must prevent the absorption of toxic substances and pathogenic microorganisms into blood, while at the same time they must ensure the absorption of nutrients. To achieve this target, the gut has developed a “barrier function”, constituted by a semi-permeable barrier that allows […]

Making phytogenics more effective against Gram-negative bacteria: use of permeabilizers

In recent years, phytogenics have been used as substitutes of antibiotic growth promoters in the poultry and livestock industries. The beneficial effects of phytogenics are attributed to their antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. We discussed the antimicrobial mechanism of action of phytogenics in this article. As antimicrobials, they generally exhibit a broad spectrum of action, […]

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 […]
