Probiotics for Animals
Effective probiotics for animals reduce pathogens and associated pathogenic processes in the gastrointestinal tract, and thereby enhance the health and productivity of livestock and poultry.
Probiotics for animals contain living bacteria, delivered in feed, that have a beneficial effect on livestock and poultry. Our probiotics may enhance the health and performance of animals through four modes of action:
- Reduction in the colonization of the GI tract by harmful bacteria.
- Improvement in the capacity of the intestine to absorb nutrients.
- Stimulation of the innate immune system enables animals to better defend themselves against pathogenic bacteria.
- Production of lactic acid to alter the environment in favor of probiotic bacteria.
