“Since gut microflora can influence the mucosal immune system, there is often a positive effect on immune response, albeit indirectly and only locally within the digestive tract.” Yet the digestive tract is just one of several routes for potential bacterial infection. For example, inhalation of bacteria such as Pasturella spp. and Streptococcus spp. via the respiratory tract are responsible for considerable losses within the livestock industry, whilst skin damage can allow infection by environmental pathogens. “As a result, there’s growing interest in the potential offered by AGP alternatives that directly stimulate the entire immune system,” adds Ms Mee. By increasing the ability to tackle all infections, it’s possible to

ANTI-MICROBIAL EFFECT The medium-chain fatty acids in the Vital products have an anti-microbial effect on both gram-positive (e.g., Clostridia and Streptococcus) and gram-negative (e.g., E. coli and Salmonella) bacteria. We can read in literature that C12 fatty acids have a strong inhibiting effect on gram-positive bacteria while C8 and C10 fatty acids have a strong inhibiting effect on gram-negative bacteria. All Vital products have a high concentration of medium-chain fatty acids. This means that these products are highly anti-microbial. All Vital products also have a high level of free fatty acids (FFA). As such, the Vital products are very easy to digest because they are directly absorbed into the intestinal tract.
