SOLUTION: VITA BIOTIC LIQUID
Well-balanced mixture of short-and medium chain fatty acids, mono-glycerides, prebiotics and essential oils.
Propionic acid as acidifier
Propionic acid has an antimicrobial effect and acidification effect in water and in first parts of the gastro-intestinal tract. Due to its high pKa value, a large fraction of propionic acid will be available to act in the gastro-intestinal gut. A lower gastric pH reduces the survival of ingested pathogens reaching the small intestine in the stomach
Lauric acid: antibacterial and antiviral effect
Lauric acid inhibits the replication of viruses and interrupts the binding of viruses to host cells. This through the deactivation of the lipid and enveloped viruses and breaking down the cell wall. Lauric acid also prevents the uncoating of viruses for replication and infection.
Mono laurate and propionate: bactercidalaction in the small intestine
Monoglycerides are composed of a molecule of glycerol linked to a fatty acid via an ester bond (esterification of fatty acid). The SFCA and MCFA, in this case propionic and lauric acid, can only be released by enzymatic digestion, which takes place mainly in the small intestine.
Inulin as prebiotic
Inulin, derived from chicory root, is rich in this prebiotics. Inulin is a fructo-oligosaccharide, which constitutes as a good source of dietary fiber. It is an effective alternative for growth promotors, stimulates gut development and enhances the mineral absorption.
Oregano oil as essential oil
The active components of essential oils create a synergy which translates into different effects, such as a natural alternative to growth promotors among with antifungal and anticoccidial effect.
Essential oil will increase the bactericidal efficacy of organic acids by facilitating the entry of the organic acid into the bacterial cell wall.
