Importance of Animal Health Products - Sanzyme Biologics
Posted: May 07, 2021
Maintenance of animal health is one central tenet to all captive animal production, including aquaculture.
Monitoring animal health and preventing animal disease outbreaks is important to the economy as is the safety of the country’s food supply. Production of healthy livestock will help in ensuring a safe food supply and keep consumer prices stable.
Animals are responsible for producing some of the major food items that make our balanced diet complete and help us live a healthy life. We are dependent on animals for resources like eggs, milk, meat, etc. so, the health of a farm animal is indirectly related to human health. It is because the consumption of food produced from these animals can affect our health.
Probiotics are easily available at any health food store, and they can be found in the form of capsules, liquids, and live-culture yogurt. These Animal Health Products can help in giving a nutritional bump to your farm animal’s health. The blend of herbs, enzymes, vitamins, probiotics, and nutrients can help to support proper digestion and bowel movement. It even helps to maintain healthy gut flora and pH balance to support normal digestive function.
The efficiency of probiotic in farm animals
Animal Probiotics have many varied benefits. Some of the most potential benefits that can arise from applications of probiotic on farm animals include:
Resistance to infectious diseases
Better absorption of nutrients
Improved feed conversion
Provision of essential nutrients
Increase in growth rate
Improved milk quality
Increased egg production
Improved milk yield
Improved egg quality
Since probiotics are an alternative to antimicrobial growth promoters, their impact on farm animals is of prime interest.
Here are a few benefits of probiotics on animal healthcare products:
1. Improved growth rate:
Microorganisms are mainly used as probiotics in animals. They are even linked to efficacy in the gut. Strains of probiotics can also help to improve feed intake, feed conversion rate, and daily weight gain in farm animals like pigs, sheep, chickens, goats, and cattle.
2. Milk production:
Feeding animals with probiotics can help them produce more milk, fat, and protein content. It has been proven that with the consumption of higher serum cholesterol and total lipid concentrations, there is an increase in blood and milk parameters. Microbes are then selected in milk products for their amazing ability to produce organic acids and their health-associated properties.
3. Egg production:
Probiotics can also help in increasing egg production, quality, shell weight, shell thickness, and serum calcium. They help in decreasing egg contamination. They are even helpful in reducing plasma cholesterol and triglycerides.
Sanzyme biologics have developed probiotic solutions for animals. They include;
a) Uni Nutrich Plus – This probiotic formula from Sanzyme Biologics is a blend of trace minerals, vitamins, and probiotics and also another flagship product of Sanzyme Biologics which is used mostly in aquaculture. Some of its major benefits are; it helps in molting and shell formation. It protects the shrimp against any mineral deficiency diseases and helps shrimp to grow in freshwater. It provides weight gain and reduces stress from salinity changes.
b) Uni Max – It is a feed supplement and a flagship product of Sanzyme Biologics that is used mostly in aquaculture. It is a combination of probiotics, vitamins, and enzymes. Some of its key benefits are; it helps to acidify the gut of the shrimp/fish which prevents the growth of pathogens like Clostridia, E Coli, Salmonella, Vibrio sp, and Streptococci. It helps in releasing enzymes like amylase, phytase, lipase, cellulase, and beta-glucanase to improve digestion. It helps in the digestion of fiber present in the feed to maintain proper collagen synthesis.
c) Uni Ecosense – It has a synergistic blend of six probiotic strains or Bacillus species that is used in Aquaculture. Some of its major benefits are; It produces varieties of antibacterial substances that can control Vibrio loads in water. It produces enzymes like amylase, protease, lipase, and cellulase which can digest the organic waste encouraging the beneficial phytoplanktons of the pond water and maintaining the water pH and alkalinity.d) Uni Clear – It is a highly effective photosynthetic bacteria used mostly in Aquaculture. It is also a proprietary blend of Rhodococcus species and Rhodobacter. Its major benefits are reducing the black soil and clearing any kind of organic matter in the water.
Sanzyme Biologics is dedicated to developing probiotic solutions in all suitable applications.
