The effects of these plant extracts were then investigated through four scientific trials.
Dr Rychlik from Brno University in Czechia and Dr Mascarenhas from UFG in Brazil presented studies in broilers, respectively in salmonella infection context and in heat stress.
Dr Haldar from Agrivet in India and Dr Giannenas from University of Thessaloniki in Greece highlighted the effects of Scutellaria and Curcuma on layers in Subtropical and Mediterranean summer conditions.
The results showcase:
- A consistent improvement of the performances in all trials
- A reduction of the oxidative and inflammatory stress
- An amelioration of the gut and liver function
- An improved tolerance to stressors
