KEM-GEST™ is a blend of organic and inorganic acids designed for nursery pigs to start off stronger. The blend of acids impacts the pigs in two ways. First the phosphoric acid is delivered to the pig’s stomach to stimulate hydrochloric acid production, which is lacking at weaning, for digestion. Second the organic acids are delivered to the hind gut for reduction of efficiency stealing pathogens.
By supporting the piglet’s gastric acidification processes, KEM-GEST can improve the gut barrier function which leads to overall better health and efficiency. KEM-GEST reduces urine pH to lower ammonia emission as well as improve the activity of GI enzymes, enhancing digestion and absorption of nutrients.
