Silvafeed® Nutri P reduces diarrhoea and maximises gut defences in pigs

Silvafeed® Nutri P is a natural extract suitable for pigs. Silvafeed® Nutri P has astringent properties that slow intestinal peristalsis and improve the action of digestive enzymes.

The use of Silvafeed® Nutri P in pigs promotes the absorption of nutrients in the intestine and helps the animal at different stages of growth and overall health

Weaning is characterised by a high level of stress for the animal, thus bringing diarrhoea and consequently dehydration. Silvafeed® Nutri P is mainly used in the early stages of post weaning and the fattening period.

Furthermore, Silvafeed® Nutri P can be considered a valid alternative to Zinc Oxide in a piglet’s diet, both for medical and growth promoting reasons.

Several studies have shown great results in using Silvafeed® Nutri P as a potential alternative to antibiotics in livestock.

Due to the presence of active components, Silvafeed® Nutri P carries out a selective bacteriostatic effect, thus promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria and strengthening the body’s natural defences against most pathogenic bacterial strains, such as Staphylococcus aureus, Campylobacter jejuni, Salmonella Typhimurium, Clostridium perfringens and Escherichia coli.

The use of Silvafeed® Nutri P is an attractive alternative to the use of antimicrobial growth promoters (AGP). This natural product does not leave residues in poultry derived products.

Furthermore, Silvafeed® Nutri P acts as an appealing feed flavour and appetite enhancer in pigs and presents a positive effect on feed conversion rate (FCR), final body weight and mortality.
