Binds mycotoxins and supports the liver’s purifying action
Cultivation and harvesting conditions, manner of storage and preservation form risk factors for mould growth and the presence of mycotoxins. For a new harvest (grain), it is therefore good to pay extra attention to the presence of the moulds that produce the said mycotoxins.
Through the reduced mycotoxin loading, the application of clay minerals and yeast cell walls has a positive effect on the animal’s health status. Research at Utrecht University has demonstrated that yeast cell walls are well able to bind mycotoxins such as zearalenone, DON and ochratoxins at different pH levels.
Silymarin (milk thistle extract) as a natural antioxidant has a supporting effect on the purifying function of the liver and the immune system. Research demonstrates that the sow and her piglets profit from this. Application of TWILMIX Mycostick Xtra is Twilmij’s answer to the possible presence of mycotoxins in animal feed.
