A delicate balance between antioxidants and prooxidants in cells is an important determinant of various physiological processes and maintenance of this balance is the main aim of so called an integrated antioxidant system built in the animal body. This system was developed during evolution to provide an antioxidant defence and give a chance for animals to survive in oxygenated atmosphere. Recent data suggest that the antioxidant-prooxidant balance starts in the intestine. Indeed, redox status… Expand

The development of antioxidant system in the intestinal tract of broiler chickens
TLDR
The results suggest that SOD and GSH play a vital protective role in the small intestine after hatching, which contributes to rapid development of the intestine. Expand
Nutritional modulation of the antioxidant capacities in poultry: the case of selenium.
TLDR
Analysis of the current data on selenium roles in antioxidant defenses in poultry clearly showed its modulatory effect at the level of breeders, developing embryos, newly hatched chicks, and postnatal chickens, and a search for most effective dietary form of organic Se is a priority in poultry nutrition. Expand
Antioxidant Defence Systems and Oxidative Stress in Poultry Biology: An Update
TLDR
This new direction in improving antioxidant defences for poultry in stress conditions is related to an opportunity to activate a range of vitagenes via Nrf2-related mechanisms to maximise internal AO protection and redox balance maintenance. Expand
Glutathione peroxidases in poultry biology: Part 2. Modulation of enzymatic activities
TLDR
The aim of this review is to analyse the current data on relationships between various stress conditions and the GSH-Px activity in poultry with special emphasis to selenium status and nutritional supplements. Expand
Antioxidant Systems and Vitagenes in Poultry Biology: Heat Shock Proteins
TLDR
A critical analysis of the role of HSP in poultry biology with a specific emphasis to their functions as an essential part of the vitagene network is carried out. Expand
Nutritional modulation of the antioxidant capacities in poultry: the case of vitamin E.
TLDR
Evidence related to modulation of the antioxidant capacities in poultry by vitamin E is presented and it was shown that increased vitamin E supplementation in the breeder's or cockerel's diet increased their resistance to various stresses, including high polyunsaturated fatty acids, mycotoxin, or heat stress. Expand
Antioxidant Systems in Poultry Biology: Superoxide Dismutase
Commercial poultry production is associated with various stresses responsible for decreasing productive and reproductive performance of growing chicks, breeders and commercial layers. A growing bodyExpand
ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEMS IN POULTRY BIOLOGY: HEAT SOCK PROTEINS
TLDR
A critical analysis of the role of HSPs in poultry biology with specific emphasis to their functions as an essential part of the vitagene network is carried out. Expand
Antioxidant Action of Carnitine: Molecular Mechanisms and Practical Applications
TLDR
It could be concluded that carnitine participation in redox signaling and affecting transcription factors as well as activating the vitagene network are main mechanisms responsible for antioxidant action of LC and its derivatives. Expand
Antioxidant systems in chick embryo development. Part 1. Vitamin E, carotenoids and selenium
TLDR
The data indicate that increased supplementation of the maternal diet can substantially increase concentrations of vitamin E, carotenoids and Se in developing chick tissues and significantly decrease susceptibility to lipid peroxidation being effective nutritional tools to deal with various commercial stresses in poultry production.

THE MODERN ANTI-STRESS TECHNOLOGIES IN POULTRY: FROM ANTIOXIDANTS TO VITAGENES
TLDR
The Feed-Food Magic Anti-Stress Mix (PerforMax), a new feed additive which improves the ability of animal adaptation under stress, has been developed and helps to overcome stress at lower losses and thus increase the efficiency of animal husbandry and poultry farming. Expand

TLDR
The aim of the present paper is to review existing evidence about possible roles of various plant extracts provided with the diet in animal/poultry nutrition with a specific emphasis to their antioxidant activities. Expand
Impact of weaning and an antioxidant blend on intestinal barrier function and antioxidant status in pigs.
TLDR
Results indicated that intestinal dysfunction occurred after weaning and there was an inhibition of the antioxidant system, which has the potential to prevent free radical-induced damage and suppress oxidative stress by modulating the expressions of tumor protein 53 and PGC-1α genes. Expand
The antioxidant properties of canthaxanthin and its potential effects in the poultry eggs and on embryonic development of the chick. Part 2.
TLDR
In well designed experiments, it was proven that CX dietary supplementation of the breeder's diet significantly increased anti-oxidative status in the egg yolk and newly hatched chicks and as a result hatching rate of chicken eggs was significantly increased. Expand
The role of glutathione in the gastrointestinal tract: a review.
TLDR
The present review underlines the role of oxidative stress in numerous physiological and pathological conditions in experimental animals and man and the need to maintain a normal antioxidant potential in the mucosal cells of the gastrointestinal tract and the possibility to evaluate, through clinical studies, how glutathione concentration, food intake, and gastrointestinal diseases are associated. Expand
The antioxidant properties of canthaxanthin and its potential effects in the poultry eggs and on embryonic development of the chick. Part 1.
Among more than 750 known carotenoids, canthaxanthin (CX) has a special place as a carotenoid with proven antioxidant and other biologically-relevant functions. A substantial body of evidenceExpand
Regulation of an antioxidant blend on intestinal redox status and major microbiota in early weaned piglets.
OBJECTIVE According to the "antioxidants network" theory, the present study was conducted to evaluate the regulation of an antioxidant blend on intestinal redox status and major microbiota ofExpand
GUT IMMUNITY IN BIRDS: FACTS AND REFLECTIONS (review)
TLDR
This review summarises recent knowledge about the development and functioning of protective immunological mechanisms in the gut and focuses on the possibilities on the modulation of gut immunity by a mixture of biological active substances. Expand
The gastrointestinal tract: A major site of antioxidant action?
TLDR
The argument is developed that the high levels of antioxidants present in certain foods (fruits, vegetables, grains) and beverages (e.g. green tea) play an important role in protecting the gastrointestinal tract itself from oxidative damage, and in delaying the development of stomach, colon and rectal cancer. Expand
Recent developments in usage of natu Ral antioxidants to imp Rove chicken meat p Roduction and quality
TLDR
Optimal antioxidant supplementation is shown to be important to maintain high growth rate, immunocompetence and meat quality of growing broiler chicks, and a new technology based on vita-gene concept has been developed to deal with various stresses by supplementing a complex mixture of antioxidants and other important elements via drinking water.
