There are number of alternatives to antibiotic growth promoters that are also based on improving the general health of the animal by maintaining a healthy gut micro flora. The health of the gastrointestinal tract is key to productivity, acquisition and assimilation of nutrients and maintenance of a barrier of infection against microbial and viral infections. Gut acidifiers are one of the most promising group of products to replace antibiotic growth promoters in the feed. The addition of acidifiers to either the feed or water will promote a healthy gut microflora by promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and at the same time they have a direct antimicrobial effect particularly against gram negative pathogens.

VIGOR L

Powerful liquid gut acidifier specially blended for the promotion of a healthy gut microflora and control of gram negative pathogens within the gastro intestinal tract. Vigor L is added to the drinking water to help control water quality and the pH of the drinking water, it will also descale and remove biofilm during the cycle ensuring the drinker system is free from pathogenic bacteria and the blend of acids will acidify the gut thus improving general health and performance of the bird.

VIGOR P

Powerful gut acidifier specially blended for the promotion of a healthy gut microflora and control of gram negative pathogens within the gastro-intestinal tract. Vigor P is a carefully selected blend of buffered organic acids and phytogenics which reduces the risk of enteric disease, increases the length and health of villi in the intestine (essential for nutrient absorption) and survives the passage through the gut reducing the risk of horizontal Salmonella transmission through the gut.
