HydraVantage is a highly refined, flavored and soluble nutritional premix for swine and poultry. This soluble premix can act as a gut conditioner and help support immune system function, especially during times of stress.
Fresh Water Humic Acid that can support immune system function, and Fulvic Acid, an organic natural electrolyte that easily diffuses through membranes
- Comprised of natural chelating agents that can help aid in nutrient availability
- Immune System
- Starting pig nursery research has shown numerical increase in glucose levels in pigs challenged with an inflammatory stress agent1
- Sow research in gestation and lactation has shown numerical improvements in both pre-wean survivability and pigs weaned2
- The patented natural compounds may have anti-inflammatory properties
Butyric Acid that is a vital energy source for intestinal cells
- Triggers potent effects on a variety of gut functions such as inhibiting inflammation and decreasing oxidative stress3
- Can enhance growth in broilers subjected to stress from an inflammatory agent4
- May improve performance and gut morphology in nursery and finisher pigs5, 6, 7
- Can help regulate the response to inflammatory stimuli in pigs subjected to a stress agent8
Vitamin C - A key antioxidant that can help improve performance in health-challenged pigs
- This vitamin helps convert 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (the storage form of vitamin D3) to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (the active form of vitamin D3)9
- Research with health-challenged starter pigs has shown dramatic improvements in both gain and feed efficiency, along with improvements in vitamin D status10, 11
Synergies of Combined Ingredients
- In starter pigs that have been injected with a stress agent, the levels of cortisol (a steroid hormone released in response to stress) have been reduced with the combination of ingredients. In addition, a compound called Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1), which helps stimulate cell growth, but is reduced during stress, is actually maintained when ingredients are used in combination1
- In broilers subjected to heat stress, the combination of ingredients results in a synergistic effect that can help with bird performance and livability12
- In commercial layer studies with 270,000 layers per house, the combination of ingredients resulted in greater egg production during heat stress, whereas layers that were fed electrolytes had reduced egg production13
