THE CONCEPT OF GUT HEALTH

Gut Health is of vital importance to the performance of production animals. A healthy gastrointestinal tract allows to reduce or eliminate the use of antibiotic growth promoters.

Gut health is the absence of disease so that the animal is able to perform its physiological functions and withstand exogenous and endogenous stressors.

It covers multiple positive aspects of the gastrointestinal tract: effective digestion and absorption of nutrients, healthy tissues, normal and stable intestinal microbiota, effective immune status and a state of well-being.

3 FEATURES OF A HEALTHY GUT

When evaluating gut health, we should pay attention to the following three features.

3 features of a healthy gut EN

1. Healthy tissues

  • Absence of lesions, irritation or inflammation
  • Proper amount of mucin
  • In the small intestine, tall villi and high villus/crypt ratio
  • Robust barrier function

2. Balanced microbiome

  • High microbial diversity
  • Elevated amount of beneficial microorganisms
  • Reduced amount of pathogenic microorganisms

3. Strong digestive immunity

  • Generation of a proper immune response to invading pathogens
  • Contribute to a robust intestinal barrier function
  • Avoid producing an excessive inflammatory response
