In animal production industries, gut health is synonymous with animal health. Just like people need to maintain good digestive health for a quality life, so do animals. Cultivating animal intestinal integrity is top priority in order to see the best performance of production animals.
The phrase "gut health" can encompass a number of health priorities like nutrient digestion and absorption, metabolism and energy generation and more.
Gut health can also be defined as the absence, prevention and avoidance of disease in those areas so animals can perform the physiological functions.

Kemin provides a comprehensive approach to strengthening animal intestinal integrity, creating healthy microbial balance and supporting immune function. Integrity relates to maintaining the strength of the intestinal barrier to maximize nutrient absorption while preventing harmful parasites, pathogens, enzymes, acids and toxins from infiltrating the body. Balance is diversifying the population of microbes to promote healthy microflora in the gastrointestinal tract. Many factors impact bacterial populations, which can ultimately cause harm to the host. Protection is supporting immune function to respond to challenges and reduce inflammation. Collectively, these three areas set the foundation for optimal gut health and animal performance.
