What is a Prebiotic?
A prebiotic is a non-digestible food ingredient that supports a healthy balance of microflora in the digestive tract system. Research has demonstrated that the status of the immune system is affected by the GI tract health. Animals reared in intensive farming conditions are subject to various environmental stress factors and exposure to several pathogens that weaken the immune system and reduce animal performance.
Beyond supporting the immune system, seaweed meal leads to other benefits such as maintaining feed intake, promoting hair growth and skin condition, and maintaining a calm disposition. Raising Champions requires an effective management program, including proper nutrition to support a healthy GI tract and contribute to show animal health, appearance and performance.
