There are many vitamins required for optimal poultry health. These can be classified as either fat soluble vitamins – A, D, E and K, for example – or water-soluble vitamins, such as riboflavin and the B vitamins. Usage of these nutrients in adequate amounts, as well as some others, can both improve animal health and the producer’s bottom line.
In poultry, a deficiency of vitamin A results in poor feathering along with droopiness, nasal and ocular discharge and eye lesions. Even more important for production, a lack of vitamin A can stunt growth.
Vitamin D plays a vital role in optimal function of a hen’s skeletal system, strengthening the bones, claws and beak. It also has a positive impact on the quality of the eggshells produced by layers and breeders.
Vitamin E is vital for growth and good egg production. It also contributes to a healthy immune system by increasing the activity of “microbe-eating” phagocytes, cells that ingest and destroy harmful bacteria. This promotes the healing of infected tissues and increases resistance to further infection.As stores of this nutrient are depleted in the fight against any challenge to the immune system, it is extremely important that the animal’s vitamin E requirements are met.
Unlike vitamins D, A and E, the B vitamins are water soluble. This means that they are not stored by the body and must be consumed regularly to provide a continuous supply. If a hen is not eating enough due to health problems or increased stress levels, supplementation with the B vitamins can help the animal get back on its feet.
Lysozyme (EC 22.214.171.124) is a natural antimicrobial protein considered to be an important component of the innate immune system. It exerts bacteriolytic activity by hydrolyzing the β-1,4- glycosidic linkage between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetyl glucosamine of bacterial cell wall, mainly against many Gram-positive bacteria.
- It increased growth performance
- Resistant from various dieses
- Increasing immune system
- Required for normal growth, reproduction and maintenance of epithelial cells in good condition
- Skeletal system, strengthening the bones, claws and beak.
- Dietary supplementation of broiler chickens with lysozyme increased the BWG and improved the FCR
