Effects of black cumin seed (Nigella sativa L.), a probiotic, a prebiotic and a synbiotic on growth performance, immune response and blood characteristics of male broilers
Dietary supplemented with probiotic, synbiotic or 10 to 20 g/kg black seed improved FCR of broilers and improved plasma lipid profile and antibody-mediated immunity. Expand
Comparative effects of using black seed (Nigella sativa), cumin seed (Cuminum cyminum), probiotic or prebiotic on growth performance, blood haematology and serum biochemistry of broiler chicks.
Results showed promising results regarding the use of spice additives as growth and health promoters, especially at higher levels of their incorporation in the diets, which were comparable to the probiotic- or prebiotic-containing diets. Expand
Influence of feeding synbiotic containing Enterococcus faecium and inulin on blood metabolites, nutrient digestibility and growth performance in sheep fed alfalfa-based diet
It can be concluded that although SYN supplementation had no effect on performance traits of sheep, it had significant effect on both fiber digestibility and immunoglobulin concentration in blood. Expand
Alleviation of chronic heat stress in broilers by dietary supplementation of betaine and turmeric rhizome powder: dynamics of performance, leukocyte profile, humoral immunity, and antioxidant status
Dietary supplementation of either Bet or TRP alone or in combination can partially ameliorate some of the detrimental effects of HS in broilers and suggest that TRP might be better than Bet for improving stress tolerance and immune response in heat-stressed broilers. Expand
Single or combined effects of date pits and olive pulps on productive traits, egg quality, serum lipids and leucocytes profiles of laying hens
In conclusion, date pits and olive pulps could be partly used as alternative feedstuffs in the laying hens’ diets, without negatively affected the productive and health parameters. Expand
Response of laying hens to feeding low-protein amino acid-supplemented diets under high ambient temperature: performance, egg quality, leukocyte profile, blood lipids, and excreta pH
Reducing dietary CP from 16.5 to 12.0 % and supplementing the diets with the essential amino acids showed merit for improving the stress response and excreta quality while maintaining acceptable production performance from laying hens under high ambient temperature conditions. Expand
Effects of dietary organic acid blend supplementation on performance, intestinal morphology and antibody-mediated immunity in broiler chickens
Received: July 24, 2014 Revised: August 20, 2014 Accepted: September 03, 2014 Available online October 23, 2014 This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of a dietary organic acid blend onExpand
Effects of dietary crude protein and electrolyte balance on production parameters and blood biochemicals of laying hens under tropical summer condition
Results indicate that, under tropical conditions, using a DEB of 250 mEq/kg achieves a correction of the lay-induced metabolic acidosis and induces a positive effect on eggshell quality when the hens were fed low-protein diet. Expand
Effect of Scrophularia striata and Ferulago angulata, as alternatives to virginiamycin, on growth performance, intestinal microbial population, immune response, and blood constituents of broiler
D dietary S. striata or F. angulata at a level of 4 g/kg diet enhanced growth performance, which was comparable to that of VM used as an antibiotic growth promoter, and a high dose of both herbs could beneficially affect the intestinal health and immune status of broilers. Expand
The Effects of a Synbiotic Containing Enterococcus faecium and Inulin on Growth Performance and Resistance to Coccidiosis in Broiler Chickens
It can hypothesize that synbiotic Biomin®IMBO can promote growth and have protective properties against coccidiosis in broiler diets. Expand
