(Organic Selenium + Natural Vitamin-E + Organic copper)
The role of Selenium and Vitamin-E
Increasing the selenium content of the hen’s ration significantly improves the selenium status and the glutathione peroxidase activity of the chick. At hatching, the chick is suddenly exposed to higher concentrations of oxygen. Oxygen reacts with lipids in the chicks to form toxic peroxides. Antioxidants such as Vitamin-E, can slow the formation of peroxides.
The role of Copper
Copper is vital in the body as a component or cofactor in enzyme systems involved in metabolism, and immune function. It is involved in both cell-mediated immunity (helping to eliminate invading bacteria) and humoral immunity (helping to produce antibodies). These and other functions make copper even more essential where antibiotics are either limited or banned. Copper can contribute to intestinal health in two ways. As an antimicrobial agent, copper can prevent disturbances in the balance of microflora. It can also help the gut respond to infections; injury and inflammation. Copper is involved in protecting cells from free radical damage as a component of superoxide dismutase and copper enhances iron transport.
