Importance of immunity, intestinal integrity and microbiome management for optimal animal health



There are more bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract than cells in the body. Anything that affects the microbiota will enhance the potential for enteric pathogens to proliferate, damaging the growth potential and general health of your animals. 



Healthy animals are more likely to increase your production efficiency and optimize your economic profitability. By improving your animals' immune system, disease resistance and overall (intestinal) health, you can gain significant benefits in animal production. 


Intestinal integrity is all about maintaining the  structure of the intestinal barrier, which is made up of a layer of epithelial cells (intestinal enterocytes). This barrier has to perform two very contrasting functions; maximise the absorption of nutrients and to prevent bacteria and toxins from entering the body (Leaky Gut Syndrome). The absorption of bacteria and toxins is prevented by intestinal tight junctions, which are transmembrane protein complexes that bind intestinal enterocytes together.
