Enteric diseases are a common problem in modern pig production worldwide. The diseases are often related to certain animal age categories (e.g. neonatal diarrhea, post-weaning diarrhea) and hence less attention is given to the enteric diseases of growing pigs who have passed that critical age of susceptibility.
The digestive pathology of the piglets and of other age groups is mainly impacted by bacteria, viruses, and protozoa by their antagonistic effect on the gut which leads to diarrhea. The results obtained by currently used alternatives (organic acids, Cu and Zn compounds, probiotics, prebiotics, etc.) are unpredictable and sometimes not acceptable because of their effect on the environment pollution. Since diarrhea severely reduces the overall growth performances by reduction of feed intake, maldigestion, and malabsorption, it can greatly impact the profitability of pig production enterprise.
DIABOULARD is a unique combination of selected fay acids and naturally occurring substances derived from herbs having strong an-diarrheal properties, along with Saccharomyces boulardii. These constituents synergistically prevent digestive upsets due to bacterial overgrowth and or viral infections.
The biologically active phytocompounds of DIABOULARD acts at various levels, extracellularly and intracellularly to inhibit diarrhea-causing pathogens and or their enterotoxins.
MCFA in DIABOULARD has very high bacteriostatic and bactericidal activity against both gram + and gram – bacteria (which is at par with antibiotic growth promoters according to numerous studies).
Saccharomyces boulardii exhibits an-diarrheal effect by three main actions, viz. antimicrobial action, trophic action, and immunoregulation. The antimicrobial action is attributed to direct an-toxin effects and inhibition of growth and invasion of pathogens. The trophic action includes an-inflammatory effects, fluid absorption, enzyme expression on microvilli, and regulation of many intestinal functions. As an immunoregulatory effect, it preserves intestinal integrity and modulates inflammation preventing bacterial translocation and intestinal lesions.
