Ecocell is a highly purified source of MannanOligoSaccharide (MOS) and β-glucans, used to aid in pathogen management and the enhancement of natural immune systems.
Mannanoligosaccharides are sugars that consist of a limited number of mannose units.
β-glucans consist of glucose units linked in a β-manner (in contrast to starch where the glucose units are linked in an α-manner).
The product has been enriched in inulin (Fructans or FOS) that also has a prebiotic effect, thus stabilising the gut content.
- Ecocell aids in pathogen management by preventing bacteria attaching to the gut wall
- This in turn prevents the detrimental effect such bacteria have on the lining of the gut
- Through the inclusion on inulin Ecocell exhibits a prebiotic effect in the gut positively affecting microflora in the small intestine
- MOS has also been shown to stimulate IgA and IgG
This leads to
- Increased daily gain and reduced feed conversion ratio
- Reduced incidence of diarrhea
- Boosting immune functions in the gut assisting the production of a healthier animal.
