A GUT ACIDIFIER WITH AN ACTIVITY ENHANCER BASE
Importance of gut health
The healthy gut which is free from invading pathogens is extremely important for effective digestion of nutrients, resulting in excellent growth and profitability. Acidifier lowers the gut pH. Low pH in the gut protects animals from pathogens entering the gastrointestinal tract. Acid production in the stomach is often inadequate to lower the pH and buffering capacity of the feed.
Acidifier continues the acidification to reduce the gut pH and enhance the activity of proteolytic enzymes. Simultaneously it inhibits the growth of E.coli and Salmonella to check morbidity and mortality. Positive effect on gut mucosal morphology With this positive effect acidifier stimulates pancreatic secretion which leads to improved digestion, absorption and retention of protein, amino acids and phosphorus. Finally it lowers fecal contents of these nutrients to reduce the environmental load.
Advantage in young chicks
Acid production in proventriculus and crop of young chicks is not sufficient to give protection against harmful microbes, hence feeding of acidifier to chicks is necessary. Low pH in the gut also helps for the activation of pepsinogens to active pepsins. Low pepsin activity decreases the digestion of feed proteins entering the lower gut which causes loose droppings. Simultaneously the acidifier prevents the adherence of pathogens to the gut wall ,paving the way to useful microbes to get attached to gut mucosa to offer additional protection.
Benefits from activity enhancer base
Multi-layered micro molecules of the activity enhancer carrier makes the product free flowing.
Because of it’s special binding ability the product is uniformly available in the gut without losing it’s properties.
The special carrier also traps mycotoxins, endotoxins and. pathogens in its honey-comb like structure to offer the additional protection to the birds.
Major advantages of the acidifier:
- Reduces morbidity and mortality to improve weight gain and FCR
- Provides friendly atmosphere to useful microbes to get attached to gut
lining without any hindrance to offer maximum protection.
- Improves digestibility of proteins and other nutrients.
- Provides antimicrobial support to both feed and the gut.
