Orego-Stim promotes a balanced intestinal microbiota
 
Meriden Animal Health

 
An ideal intestinal microbiota allows for optimum growth performance. Any alteration of the indigenous microbiota by diet or environmental stress can be deleterious to the host. One of the growth-enhancing features of Orego-Stim is due to its effect on the intestinal microbiota.

 

It is known that beneficial and pathogenic bacteria co-exist in the gastrointestinal tract in an inverse relationship that is ruled by CE. When an animal undergoes a period of stress or disease challenge, the intestinal population of beneficial and commensal bacteria declines. This contingency allows certain opportunistic pathogens to multiply to a certain threshold which then causes the clinical signs of intestinal disease.

 

A combination of Orego-Stim and probiotics will not harm the animal. As Orego-Stim cleanses the intestines and rids it of pathogens and infected cells, the probiotics would continually supplement and replace bacteria that are lost to fill the void, adding to the amount of competing beneficial microbiota. However, because a small portion of the probiotics would be killed or removed as well, this may not be the most economical choice or best solution for a livestock producer.
