You might heard several times that animals also need nutrition. There are several animal nutrition products which is given to animals for their dietary needs.
Have you ever gave a thought on why animal nutrition is so much important for animals?
Just like humans, animals need a proper balance of protein, vitamins and all nutritionally important minerals in the diet to stay healthy. They need balanced diet to function well.
In fact, adding nutritional supplements can enhance their wellbeing. So, here are 5 best supplements which we can give as animal nutrition.
- MOS (mannan-oligosaccharides)
Mannan Oligosaccharide MOS is a unique prebiotic. It can maintain intestinal integrity by taking care of digestive and absorptive function of the gut in the post-weaning period in animals. It enhances disease resistance barrier by promoting antigen present in animal body. MOS is often referred to as one of the potential alternatives for killing bacteria. Also, the dietary impact of MOS helps in Microbial changes, digestibility of nutrients, enhances the immune response.
- Calcium propionate
Calcium Propionate for Feed Grade is a useful binding material for toxin binders for all animal species, especially in poultry sector. It gives remarkable results when it is added in feed of veterinary, fishery, poultry, piggery, swine and other animal feed. In calves, it improves the development of calf rumen epithelium. It is even used in feed supplements for cow, to prevent milk fever, to prevent microbes.
- Omega 3 fatty acid
The omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids play an important role in the development and maintenance of different organs, primarily the brain, and could be useful in the prevention of different pathogens.
The enrichment in eggs is proportional to the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in the hen’s diet. Including the effect is considerable for fish and egg, interestingly for poultry and rabbit, extremely low for beef, mutton, and sheep.
- Protein hydrolysate
In animals, Protein hydrolysate allows amino acids to be absorbed by the body more rapidly than intact proteins which help in faster hydrolyzation to the peptide. Chemical, enzymatic, or microbial hydrolysis of proteins in an animal can give high-quality by-products or plant-source feedstuffs. This means feeding of a protein hydrolysate is an attractive means of generating both nutritional and physiological or regulatory functions in livestock, poultry, and fish.
- Mold Inhibitors
Mold Inhibitors like Calcium Butyrate/Sodium Butyrate or calcium/Sodium propionate used to minimize mold contamination and prevent mold growth, thereby minimizing the risk of having mycotoxin-producing molds proliferate in grain or feed. Commonly, Feed additives are used for this purpose include propionic acids and other organic acids.
