The prebiotics is organic substances extracted from plants used as food additives, such as inulin (derived from chicory), FOS (oligosaccharides), soya oligosaccharides, glucomannan (from konjac), dietary fiber and gum, etc., It can selectively promote the growth and reproduction of beneficial bacteria, thus improve the body health without being digested or absorbed by the host.
How does the natural ingredient affect the animal?
Improve the production
The natural plant extracts can consist of many different active ingredient groups, such as pungent substances, alkaloids, organic acids, essential oils, saponins, flavonoids, mucilages, mineral elements and tannins. Piperine, thyme powder and cinnamaldehyde can stimulate the secretion of digestive enzymes, activate digestive enzymes and promote the healthy growth of animals. The extracts of Eucommia ulmoidesare and Lonicera japonica Thunb are associated with health benefits due to their substantial quantity of chlorogenic acid.
The immune regulation of natural plants is multifaceted, which is not only related to various immune cells, but also closely related to the activity of cytokines. Polysaccharides, alkaloids and other bioactive ingredients increase enzymatic activity in the intestinal tract, improve nutrient utilisation, antioxidant effects, improve gut integrity，at the same time can effectively activate animal immune cells and enhance the ability of animal disease resistance and stress resistance.
Chemical antibiotic alternative
The natural alternative for livestock producers and companies developing antibiotic-free feeding programs. Natural plant extracts can improve intestinal tissue, improve digestive enzyme activity, promote the digestion and absorption of nutrients in animals, and ensure intestinal health. A large number of animal experiments show that natural plant additives can act as antibiotics in animal production.
Reduce environmental pollution
The study confirms that the natural plant extracts in animal food additives can reduce the emissions of livestock waste, relying on its antibacterial and antioxidant properties can effectively curb the breeding of microorganism in livestock and poultry manure to achieve the purpose of reducing emissions, and can promote the increase of the content of lactic acid in the feces and urine pH is reduced, further inhibit the activity of microorganisms, thus reducing environmental pollution caused by livestock waste. For example, Yucca extract has a strong adsorption capacity for ammonia, which can reduce ammonia, methane and other greenhouse gas emissions produced by animal production.
