The animal protein industry has exponentially grown, and the applied intensive production practices cause unavoidable stress to animals due to confinement, transport, and handling. Stress generates a physiological condition characterized by immune suppression, making animals susceptible to diseases.
A very effective natural tool to alleviate stress is the dietary inclusion of beta-glucans. These compounds are known as biological-response modifiers due to their potential to modulate immune defenses. Briefly, when beta-glucans are recognized by specific cell receptors, they strengthen the host’s natural defenses, making it ready to face possible health challenges.
Although several beta-glucan sources are available on the market, only Biorigin’s is the most extensively studied!
