Explained - Nutraceuticals & the Oatinol® Delivery System

Explained - The 6 Active Nutraceuticals in Equilibra Feed Balancer

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

Actisaf Sc47 Live Yeast

Actisaf Sc47 is an EU approved live yeast culture that helps stabilise conditions in the hindgut and maintain high levels of microbial fermentation activity to improve overall fibre digestion.

Concentrated Yeast Derived Oligosaccharides

Oligosaccharides provide a feed source for beneficial bacteria and support the natural expulsion of antagonists found in feed and the environment.

Hemp Oil Derived Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Hemp Oil is a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids found in the plant world. This unique combination enables the animal to produce other essential Omega 3 fats called EPA & DHA, both of which are normally only found in fish oils and are crucial for maintaining the natural anti-inflammatory action of the body.

Microscopic Toxin Binder

A blend of microscopic absorbent compounds that aid the natural expulsion of antagonists found in feed and the environment.

Oat Bran Concentrated Soluble Fibres

Soluble fibres contain betaglucans that support natural self-defence mechanisms in the bloodstream.

Prebiotics

Prebiotics provide specific nourishment for friendly, fibre digesting bacteria to maintain good digestion and release of nutrients for growth, breeding and performance.

Explained - The 4 Active Nutraceuticals in the Oatinol Delivery System

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

Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies the following four active nutraceuticals to:

  • Maintain gut cell integrity.
  • Maintain the lining of the gut.
  • Support the immune system.
  • Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.

Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are a natural form of vitamin E. They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.

Oat Derived Beta Glucans

Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.

Phospholipids

Phospholipids have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.
