Natural Oregano Essential Oil (OEO) contains a wide range of naturally occurring components with antioxidant and antibacterial properties not found in synthetic oils. These components which include (but are not limited to) carvacrol and thymol, are widely documented to provide an array of benefits to many animal species including poultry, pigs, cattle, and horses.
OEO is highly aromatic and palatable, encouraging feed and water intake, which is important for maintaining gut motility, and supporting bird growth and development. A healthy gut is the basis for all bodily functions to operate effectively and efficiently; conversely a damaged or unhealthy gut leads to poor bird performance, reduces feed efficiency, impacts growth rates and can result in higher mortality. OEO also helps to support the development of good bacterial populations within the gut, such as Lactobacillus, important for optimal digestive health and maintaining a state of Eubiosis; meaning the "optimal balance of microflora in the gastrointestinal tract". Additionally, antioxidants naturally found within OEO help the body neutralise free radicals that may interfere and impact bird's immune and respiratory functions.
Phytogenics are plant-based feed additives, widely used by livestock producers to support optimal health and performance of their animals. Many fanciers here in the UK and across the world have also discovered that the key to maintaining bird gut health lies in the use of natural phytogenic products, and Orego-Stim Pigeon by Anpario is the rapidly growing, trusted solution.
