A feed allergy occurs when undigested feed proteins pass through the intestinal mucosa and thus reach the lymphatic system of the intestine. The body then recognises these as antigens and thereupon certain defence reactions take place which can lead to the symptoms mentioned.
There are numerous indications that feed allergies and intolerances can be favourably influenced by the regular consumption of probiotic supplementary feeds.
It is assumed that the active substances lie like a natural protective wall between the intestinal contents and the intestinal mucous membranes and thus prevent the transfer of the intolerable substances into the bloodstream. This creates a barrier, just like a kind of protective wall, which leads to a reduced absorption of allergens and intolerance-causing substances.
Apart from the barrier effect mentioned above, the probiotic supplements in the intestinal walls also lead to increased production of immunoglobulin A, a defensive substance that plays a role especially in mucous membrane infections. As a result, fewer inflammatory reactions take place in the intestinal mucous membranes, which provides protection against both feed allergies and feed intolerance reactions.
Probiotic feed supplements
– strengthen the intestinal walls and the intestinal mucosa
– support the immune system and reduce inflammatory reactions in the intestine
