Essential is based on phenolic compounds derived from oil cashew. Functional oils are natural oils that have functions beyond their nutritional value.
Modern dairy production systems are based on high intakes and productions.
However, challenges such as ruminal acidosis and insufficient intakes negatively affect the profitability by decreasing fiber digestibility, microbial protein production and decreasing fertility.
Essential helps to regulate ruminal pH by controlling bacterial flora because it acts as an ionophore. The active components of Essential destabilize the cell membrane of protozoa and Gram+ bacteria.
Essential helps to control ruminal pH and prevents both clinical and sub-clinical acidosis.
The effects of controlling ruminal pH are extremely important to maximize intake. High ruminal pH results in:
· Better intake.
· Better fiber and starch digestion.
· Better protein utilization.
“It keeps intestinal mucosa healthier preventing ulcers and diarrhea”.
Essential reduces heat stress by increasing oxide nitric production thus causing peripheral vasodilatation.
It decreases wind chill and the animal produces a feeling of increased appetite.
Better adaptation to heat.
“Use in all species”.
Studies conducted at different universities have shown that the active components of Essential are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. The effect of increasing the antioxidant status of a cow might result in better immunity and fertility.
By controlling bacterial flora in the rumen, volatile fatty acid production is increased, improving propionic acid production. Propionic acid is a precursor of the glucose, and so Essential provides a greater energy input.
