It’s a golden rule of animal production: Healthy animals are more likely to provide higher production efficiency and economic profitability. Whether cattle, swine, poultry or aqua, supporting an animal’s immunity, disease resistance and overall health improvement can have far reaching benefits for animal producers worldwide.
Aleta is a pure and highly bioavailable immunomodulator which provides a high and consistent concentration of beta-1,3-glucan to improve immunity and animal performance. Serving as an immunomodulator in animals, the algae-based solution can be a cost-effective way to manage immunosuppression from disease and stress, and replace antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs).
The most common source of beta glucans has been the cell wall of Saccharomyces which produces branched beta glucans. In contrast, Aleta is produced via a process that makes linear beta glucans. It is also more cost effective to produce Aleta than that of the traditional yeast-derived beta glucans.
Aleta is produced from Euglena gracilis, a unique alga which contains more than 50 percent beta-1,3-glucan. These algal cells are highly digestible, making this Aleta’s beta glucan bioavailable without extraction.
Disease outbreaks are still a costly factor in the food animal industry, despite improvements in management practices and availability of vaccines against infectious diseases in food animals
Economic losses are seen with these examples of modern disease outbreaks:
As an immunomodulator in animals, Aleta can help producers manage these types of losses. By boosting nonspecific immune modulation, Aleta heightens an animal’s immunologic capabilities when an animal may be exposed to one or more pathogens or be compromised immunologically.
Aleta’s nonspecific immune modulation can potentiate the immune response during:
