Beat the inflammation for full potential
Inflammation can slow down animal growth, leading to less efficient production. By supplying anti-inflammatory compounds, we can counteract these negative effects.
Inflammation is defined as a reaction of tissue to any harmful stimulus. This stimulus can either be of physical, chemical or immunological origin but can also be caused by microorganisms like bacteria, parasites and viruses. As the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) is the largest immune organ of the body and the place is where 70% of the immune cells are located, these challenges often result in the activation of the gastrointestinal immune (GI) system. It is known that even mild immune challenges already induce a reduction in feed intake and consequently can have a negative impact on growth. In addition, the immune cells require nutrients and energy to perform their function.
Want to learn how feed additives based on alpha-monolaurin, alpha-monocaprylin and alpha-monocaprin can be expected to have anti-inflammatory properties?
