Pro-Zyme care Can be used during heat stress,loose motion, after deworming,after Antibiotics course, dehydration etc.
Exposure to high environmental temperatures is considered to be one of the most deadly conditions, affecting human and animal health. Relatively small increase in internal temperature can lead to injury and even death. It was shown that heat stress results in a significant damage of the barrier function of the gut causing increased permeability of the gut epithelium. This increased gastrointestinal permeability is a key factor in producing symptoms of heatstroke by triggering the systemic inflammatory response, which lead to necrosis of organ tissues and multi-organ failure. Prevention of the gut permeability would offer a significant benefit in mitigation of the heat stress impact. Gut microbiota is critical in keeping mucosal barrier function. Stability of gut microbiota determines the ability of the organism to tolerate stress. Thus, modulating the intestinal microbiota by probiotics may be a novel, non-invasive therapeutic approach for prevention of heat stress-related adverse effects.
Why to give Probiotics to birds ?
What is a probiotic and prebiotic ?
Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help keep your digestive system healthy by controlling growth of harmful bacteria.
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for health, especially digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But body is full of bacteria, both good and bad.Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep gut healthy.
Probiotics are microorganisms that are believed to provide health benefits when consumed.The term probiotic is currently used to name ingested microorganism associated with benefits for humans and animals.
Scientists are just beginning to unlock why and how probiotics, the “good” bacteria that live in your gut and aid digestion, can boost health. Research suggests they are responsible for a variety of benefits including supporting the immune system, relieving depression and helping to prevent obesity. You’ve probably seen probiotics in capsule or powder form, but you can also find this friendly bacteria in many foods you might already be eating.
If probiotics don’t have an environment where they can thrive, they can’t do as much good — and that’s where prebiotics come in.
“Food has an almost immediate effect on your intestinal environment, which is composed of trillions of microbes.”
Commonly claimed benefits of probiotics include the decrease of potentially pathogenic gastrointestinal microorganisms, the reduction of gastrointestinal discomfort, the strengthening of the immune system, the improvement of the skin’s function, the improvement of bowel regularity, the strengthening of the resistance to cedar pollen allergens, the decrease in body pathogens, the reduction of flatulence and bloating, the protection of DNA, the protection of proteins and lipids from oxidative damage, and the maintaining of individual intestinal microbiotic in subjects receiving antibiotic treatment.
What Do They Do?
Probiotics help move food through gut. Researchers are still trying to figure out which are best for certain health problems. Some common conditions they treat are:
Irritable bowel syndrome Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) Infectious diarrhea (caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites)Antibiotic-related diarrhea
There is also some research to show they help with problems in other parts of your body. For example, some people say they have helped with:
Skin conditions, like eczema Urinary and vaginal health Preventing allergies and colds Oral health.
Probiotics are always helpful in maintaining gut health, especially when the body is under a viral attack that involves the digestive system. Probiotic foods and drinks without added sugar can help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria. Speaking of probiotics, a healthy intestinal tract is absolutely imperative for a strong immune system.
Types of Probiotics
Most Common Probiotics.Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are the most common probiotic bacteria. The Lactobacillus genus has 18 different bacteria strains, while the Bifidobacterium genus consists of eight strains. Lactobacilli inhabit your small intestine, and Bifidobacteria live in your colon.These friendly bacteria, also known as cultures, help the bacteria that already live in your intestines to break down food for healthy digestion. Probiotics may also strengthen your immune system.
Lactobacillus. This may be the most common probiotic. It’s the one you’ll find in yogurt and other fermented foods. Different strains can help with diarrhea and may help with people who can’t digest lactose, the sugar in milk.
Bifidobacterium. You can also find it in some dairy products. It may help ease the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and some other conditions.
What does that mean?
The good bacteria inside green peas may raise the level of IgA antibodies in immune system. These types of antibodies are often found in the lining of airway and digestive tracts and can help “enhance mucosal barrier function,” according to the study. Translation: green peas may be able to help fight off infections and colds thanks to their inherent probiotic bacteria.
How Do They Work?
Researchers are trying to figure out exactly how probiotics work. Here are some of the ways they may keep you healthy:
When lose “good” bacteria in body (like after you take antibiotics, for example), probiotics can help replace them.They can help balance your “good” and “bad” bacteria to keep your body working like it should.
Most yogurts are generally a good source of probiotics.But
“Just because it’s yogurt, doesn’t mean there are probiotics in it,”.
Some yogurts that include the words “live and active cultures” on their ingredients list offer billions of good bacteria in a serving. But not all of them do.
All yogurts with live bacteria contain Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus,
but some manufacturers add other probiotic bacteria after pasteurization, such as L. acidophilus, L. bulgaricus, L. rhamnosus and L. casei.
Prebiotics are a type of fiber that is indigestible; in the intestine, beneficial bacteria feed off prebiotics in order to survive. In other words, they make the intestines favorable for the growth of probiotic bacteria. Prebiotics can help to improve colitis, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and calcium absorption. Additionally, they can help your immune system by keeping the beneficial bacteria healthy enough to help fight off disease. Prebiotics are mainly found in fruits, vegetables and some grains. Examples of foods containing prebiotics include bananas, barley, flax, legumes,and garlic.
Prebiotics are carbohydrates that cannot be digested by the body. They are food for probiotics.
Prebiotics are non-digestible fibers that help good bacteria flourish inside your intestines. Found in foods like legumes, oatmeal, onions and artichokes, prebiotics help strike the right digestive balance inside your body.
Bananas contain fructooligosaccharide, which is a prebiotic. Prebiotics are substances that feed probiotics in the intestines. The consumption of prebiotics can help increase the levels of healthy bacteria in your gut, promoting internal cleansing and providing protection against disease.
Garlic can help probiotics thrive within the intestine. When consumed together, the indigestible prebiotics in the garlic will remain in the intestine where the probiotics that live there can use it as food. In this symbiotic relationship, the probiotics depend on the prebiotics for growth and survivial. Without adequate prebiotics, the probiotics may not get enough nutrients to survive, and the natural flora of your intestine will change. If the beneficial bacteria are underpopulated, other, more harmful bacteria can move in, potentially causing gastrointestinal problems.
Veggies are the cornerstone of good health, along with leafy greens. Fruits can also be enjoyed since they contain prebiotic fibers and natural sugars that feed gut health, but be mindful if suffer bloating after eating too much fruit since that may indicate too much sugar in system all at once. Go for plenty of leafy greens, non-starchy vegetables, berries, pineapple, and papaya which all bring healing to the gut and reduce inflammation. The most beneficial veggies high in prebiotics include: asparagus, broccoli, carrots, celery, garlic,green peas, green beans, and winter squash.
when would be a good time to start giving Probiotics to birds ?
Timing is everything, and in the case of Probiotics, how and when you give it is the difference between absorbing the “friendly bacteria” and wasting away an entire supplement. If you’re not already familiar with probiotics, they are live cultures of “good bacteria” whose function resonates with the bacteria found naturally in gut. Probiotics comes from the Greek words: support of life and for the most part, often refer to the dietary supplements of good bacteria that can be consumed in pill or powder forms.
Like all living things, probiotics consume and use resources; produce and excrete waste; reproduce and eventually die. The addition of probiotics to body is also known as the maintenance of the microorganisms found in gut. Introducing probiotics into our birds highly sensitive bacterial mix helps restore the proper levels of intestinal microflora to levels where the prevention and inhibition of an infection caused by harmful pathogens is ensured. The leveling out of bacterial mix also guarantees the proper digestion and absorption of food as well as the inhibited overpopulation of common harmful microbials.
When Should WE Start giving Probiotics to birds ?
The general consensus is that everyone needs “probiotics” added into daily regime. But if you’re looking for a good reason to start giving probiotics supplements then consider the last time you gave antibiotics and how terrible your birds felt afterwards. It’s no mystery that antibiotics are as harmful to our birds body as it is helpful. The problem with antibiotics is that when taken their intended purpose of eradicating bad bacteria in body is not limited and the same medication will go forward and destroy many different colonies of beneficial bacteria in body as well. This is why antibiotics comes with an array of side-effects such as nausea, upset stomach, irregular bowel movements and diarrhea. Studies have even found that some antibiotics are so potent that in some instances many of the beneficial bacteria that die off during treatment never repopulate. This results in a crippling blow to our digestive and immune systems and subsequently our overall well-being. Since birds body become incapable of rebuilding the community of live organisms in their stomachs, the next best step to take in restoring a healthy bacterial balance by adding probiotics into their system.
As aforementioned, probiotics are live organisms that are specifically grown to emulate the functions of natural gut flora. By adding probiotics into your birds system you can help reintroduce the necessary beneficial organisms that your intestine needs for optimal function. During that time intestine is devoid of beneficial bacteria, probiotics also stand in as the major inhibitor of bad bacterial growth and help stave away the potential for worst infections that many birds experience after taking antibiotics such as the overpopulation of the yeast Candida.
If a course of antibiotics was never a problem for your birds, then consider the amount of external factors your birds undergo every day.Habits, poor health, stress, exposure to chemicals in your birds food, water and the air they breathe are all examples of factors that cause a deficiency in the body. Any deficiency or offset that occurs to your birds body is often felt first in the intestine, which once again is not surprise whatsoever. The bacterial mix in the digestive tract is highly sensitive and any change, minor or major, can have everlasting or devastating effects on the equilibrium of your intestinal flora. Beyond the restoration of a depleted system, probiotics are essential for maintenance and prevention. Anytime the bacterial mix in your birds gut is compromised,Health is subsequently put at risk. Not taking probiotics is like not eating food.
What is a Recommended Dosage?
There are many considerations that must be placed when implanting probiotics into our birds diet. Aside from picking the right supplement or getting a decently priced brand, the most common question when taking probiotics is how much and how often. Different brands of probiotics can contain anywhere from one to 10 billion colony forming units or CFUS. As it turns out, a daily dose of 1 billion to 10 or 15 billion organisms can constitute a good dose, the exact amount is based upon the severity of the situation. For example, individuals who has given antibiotics or have just completed antibiotic treatment should take at least 10 to 15 billion CFUs daily to ensure the proper and swift transition to a healthy tract. Other birds who have minor gastrointestinal problems or unusual bowel movements should consider giving around 8 to 10 billion CFUs a day. And finally, those who have a moderately healthy digestive system and don’t suffer from any particular ailment will do just fine on one billion CFUs a day. Everyone is unique and therefore should either seek a vet practitioner’s advice or use their best judgment when giving probiotics.
First Thing in the Morning or the First Thing during a Meal?
The common misconception is that the best time to give a probiotic is first thing in the morning and on an empty stomach. Probiotics are living organisms and very much like living organisms they need food, water and warmth to survive and multiply. In the morning there is water in the body, some food and it is warm – however these conditions are not optimal for probiotics simply because there is not enough of anything for the bacterial strains to flourish.
The absolute best time to give probiotics is alongside your birds meal. Right before or just after the meal is best for getting the most out of probiotics. The journey through digestive tract is a long and treacherous one, in the case of probiotics their biggest danger is the powerful acids in the digestive system meant to break down and disintegrate the materials that travels through its passage. If enough acid overcomes it could kill the delicate strains and render supplement completely useless since the probiotic is not delivered to its appropriate destination – the intestine. By giving probiotic with food you provide a buffering system for the supplement and ensure its safe passage through the digestive tract of birds. Aside from protection, food also provides the friendly bacteria in probiotic the proper food and nourishment to ensure it survives, grows and multiplies in your birds gut.
In short, the consumption of both a healthy meal and your supplement offers the optimal environment and situation to get the most out of probiotics.
Timing is everything, so why not take charge of your birds health and introduce a dose of friendly bacteria to your birds body today ?
