Multiple scientific studies have proven the positive effects of secondary plant compounds on gut health in livestock animals. These substances support digestion and improve the utilization of nutrients. The result is a higher daily weight gain and better feed conversion. In addition, SPCs have a proven antimicrobial effect. This effect is based on different biological modes of action, thus preventing the development of resistances. The diversity of secondary plant compounds therefore presents an advantage.
Standardized and Effective
With the Activo® product line, EW Nutrition offers a solution that positively influences performance parameters in livestock. In scientific studies, the Activo® product line has shown to be able to lead to optimum production parameters without the addition of resistance producing substances.
Inspired by Nature
In contrast to animals, plants do not have the opportunity to flee when faced with danger. Plants have developed other strategies to guarantee survival of the species. One of these strategies is based on the production of numerous biologically active substances within the plants. These so-called secondary plant compounds can attract insects for pollination or protect the plant from pathogens or herbivores. Humans have used this knowledge for millennia and systematically used plant compounds for stimulating appetite and improving digestion.
