Explained - Nutraceuticals

Explained - The 37 Active Nutraceuticals in Duck & Goose Mini Layers Pellets

Nutraceuticals are products derived from food sources with extra health benefits in addition to their basic nutritional value.

Arginine

An essential amino acid for growth, feathering and other key biological functions. Important for laying ability, egg weight and shell strength.

Beta-Glucanase & Beta-Xylanase Enzyme

Allows for a more efficient absorption and digestion of the feed's nutrients including beta glucans derived from cereal starch sources.

Betaine

Helps reduce heat stress and dehydration, particularly important for housed birds, as well as preserving the availability of amino acids.

Beta Carotene (Vitamin A precursor)

A safe and effective way to provide the building blocks for vitamin A, which is vital for vision, appetite and growth.

Biotin

Important for beak and claw integrity as well as plumage and skin condition.

Calcium

Essential as a major constituent of bones and eggshell and required for muscle contractions (all movement), cell membrane function and enzyme regulation.

Choline

Essential for all cell membranes and neural function, necessary to support cognitive health and aid in the prevention of fatty liver syndrome. Also important to prevent Perosis (displacement of the Achilles' tendon), a common issue found in poultry.

Copper

Essential for improving blood flow and for the production of collagen, which provides the framework for muscles, organs and connective tissues. Prolonged copper deficiency can lead to reduced egg production, hatchability and abnormal eggs.

Diatomaceous Earth

A natural wormer, effective for helping to eliminating worms in the digestive system.

Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)

Helps produce healthy blood cells and used by the body to manufacture DNA. A deficiency can result in decreased egg production, poor plumage and Perosis.

Iodine

Essential for the production of thyroid hormones; important for healthy feathering

Iron

Essential for the transport and storage of oxygen around the body. It is also needed for growth, healing and immunity.

Lysine

A vital amino acid for poultry and layers, critical for the growth of body tissues and essential for the development of nutritious eggs.

Magnesium

Essential for the nervous system and for normal growth and development.

Manganese 

Essential to maintaining the growth of tendons and ligaments, the formation of cartilage and the elasticity of connective tissue.

Methionine

An essential amino acid crucial for egg size, weight and composition.

Niacin (Vitamin B3)

Important for carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, cell respiration and DNA repair. Deficiency can result in dermatitis and poor feathering on feet and head, reduced laying and brooding.

Oligosaccharides (Fructo & Mannan)

Oligosaccharides from yeast cell wall that help support natural expulsion of antagonists in the digestive tract and maintain a high level of natural immunity.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

An important anti-inflammatory for general health and wellbeing including cholesterol metabolism, nerve transmission and the immune system. Essential for healthy skin and high quality plumage.

Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)

Essential in order for the body to synthesise coenzyme A, which is essential for fatty acid metabolism. Important for feed conversion.

Phosphorous

Essential for growth, bone & teeth development as well as egg production, quality, size and shell integrity. Supports urinary tract health.

Potassium

Aids fat & carbohydrate metabolism, nerve and muscle control. Vital for the movement of nutrients into a cell.

Salt (Sodium & Chloride)

An important electrolyte which regulates bodily fluids across cells and essential for movement of nerve impulses across the body. Vital for the movement of nutrients into a cell.

Selenium (Inc. Bonded)

An important antioxidant that works synergistically with vitamin E.

Starch

The main energy source in the poultry diet.

Threonine

A essential amino acid and a crucial element of the bird's feed as it cannot be made by the body. Used in the bio-synthesis of proteins and essential for feed conversion, egg production and egg mass.  

Tryptophan

An essential amino acid vital for the body's proteins, enzymes, muscles and neurotransmitters. Helps to regulate appetite, sleep, mood and pain.

Vitamin A (Retinyl Acetate)

Essential for healthy eyesight, a strong bone structure, good fertility and an active immune system.

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)

Supports neural pathways, appetite & muscle strength.

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)

Supports appetite, growth and healthy skin.

Vitamin B6

Supports protein metabolism, growth and cognitive function.

Vitamin B12

Essential for the utilisation of amino acids; involved in the production of red blood cells and the integrity of the nervous system.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen in the body that forms the matrix of connective tissues. It directly affects the level of tissue growth and development and the maintenance of the body's immune system.

Vitamin D3

Crucial for bone development. Also important for the immune system, fertility and the release of insulin. Works synergistically in particular with calcium to ensure good shell strength, egg quality and layability.

Vitamin E (Alpha-Tocopherol)

A biological antioxidant and essential for healthy reproductive, muscular, circulatory, nervous and immune systems.

Vitamin K

Supports optimal liver function and important for the blood clotting process.

Zinc

Essential for insulin production, blood clotting, healing and claw and beak health. Supports wound healing and the immune system. Sufficient levels of zinc are crucial for maintaining comb colour and prevent feathers from fraying.
